Yeah same here. I didn't even realize it wasn't in the final cue until someone on YouTube pointed it out to me. I haven't heard any sheet music-based fan edits that contain that segment, which leads me to assume it was from an early version.

It's from 0:55 of The Jango Fett Fight @Manakin Skywalker.

Seriously? I can't believe I didn't notice that. I knew it sounded familiar! I feel like I've failed my fandom. I'll have to hand in my John Williams fan badge on the way out...

 

I blame my lack of coffee today as the reason for this.

Vadar Contacts Luke (With Insert)


You will notice if you line up the SE track with the deleted scene, that it doesn't line up, this is due to microedits (6:08-6:12 is crossfaded out in the Blu-ray Deleted Scene) but also due to the fact that there is an insert added in (5:15-5:42). My theory is that the cut we see in the Blu-Ray scene is a shortened cut, and that this insert was written to cover it, but Lucas/Marquand decided to use the original cue cut down.

The Iron Door/To Jabba's Throne

I had a tough time lining these up, Manakin's attempt at this placed "The Iron Door" over the droid sentry stuff and "To Jabba's Throne" over R2 bumping into the Gamorrean, However that didn't sit right with me, for three reasons:

#1 The titles of those cues didn't match the placement, the title "The Iron Door" could have theoretically indicated Threepio and R2 trying to get inside the door, but the title "To Jabba's Throne" didn't really match anything that was going on in that part of his video.

#2  In the 1997 issue of the FSM magazine  Matessino stated that the cues covered the opening of the door and for the reception of the droids by Bib Fortuna.

#3 It seemed odd to me that Williams would score that droid moment with dissonant music, as it seems more of a muted comedic bit, and the big fanfare seemed like it was too dramatic to cover anything other than a scene change.

That definitely sounds right. I don't recall my edit at all, but I think I just kept "The Iron Door" and "To Jabba's Throne" together as they were in the SE rather than separating them. Your edit definitely seems like the correct placement.

Wow nice work so far Faleel, keep up the good work!

 

For the Rancor one, wow, thanks for reminding me, I had totally forgotten the Rinzler book came with those bonuses.  I actually bought all the e-book versions when there was a great sale on them, and never got around to checking the bonuses out!  It is surprising the cut there would be so different than the cut scored, and the Luke/saber scene too.  It's just like the Into The Trap and Jabba's End scenes, just exactly WHAT was the cut Williams wrote them too and will we ever see it?

 

Anyways, you did a great job editing together the deleted footage and the final footage to really show how the scene was originally supposed to go and how Williams scored it.  Thanks for this!

Cool, if you check them out, could let me know if there is anything in there I don't have? The guy that gave me the files I have only gave me a selection. (probably the most important stuff, but still)

There's the Ewok Celebration with English lyrics (labeled as "We Got The Power"). As far I remember that's the most interesting, and the only thing music related of the bonus content.

 

Edit: Star Wars has a short audio clip of Williams talking about the Ben's Death cue. Empire has some clips of what I presume is the spotting session, and some recording session footage. I've definitely seen the Empire clips before in a documentary so they might not be anything new.

Fight in the Dungeon (With Deleted Footage)

This one however was a PAIN! I don't really know if I got it correct, it seems like Williams scored a cut in between the one in the final film, and the one in the Rinzler eBook material.

 

 

Nicely done man. I've got the Star Wars movies on Blu-Ray the I'm not sure if it had the entire original Rancor scene or not for the extended / deleted scenes segment.

Using the Force

This is my attempt at recreating the original edit, since I had no real info to go on (except that there is footage of R2 in the background free of his bonds long before the Ewoks actually release him), I basically ended up just recutting the scene into a way that seemed to make some kind of sense.

Wow! Really puts the tension back into that scene!

 

I've heard most of this from the video game files, but where did the force-lightning music and the imperial march rendition come from? 

SWTOR contains pretty much everything except for the very ending.

That was well done. Obviously not an interesting as scenes where large potions of cues got dropped or replaced, but it's still good to showcase smaller tweaks as well.
