The ‘Star Wars’ Mos Eisley cantina scene serves as a defining moment when one realizes they want to one day be exactly like Han Solo. Watching it years later, one realizes, of course, that they actually have a bigger affinity toward Chewbacca.
No matter what the cantina scene meant to you or the countless storytellers and musicians who reference the scene in their work, many fans are pretty excited to find that the unedited scene, original design sketches and some behind-the-scenes photos have popped up online recently.
Clearly the designs and photos indicate the amount of detail that went into the imagining of this scene. Not only does it show how pivotal the cantina scene is in the story of ‘Stars Wars,’ but also indicates its importance in the history of science fiction filmmaking itself.
