Pop Culture – Jon Stuart Recognized as Storm Trooper at Star Wars Celebration V

Star Wars Celebration V, the annual celebration of the Star Wars saga, was held in Orlando this past weekend. There, fans were riled up to see a deleted scene from the beginning of Return of the Jedi (UPDATE: YouTube has since removed the video due to copyright) which will be included in the soon to be released remastered Blu-Ray special edition box set. The scene shows Darth Vader calling out to Luke through the force while Luke builds his infamous green lightsaber before going into Jaba’s Palace to save Han Solo, Princess Leia, C3PO, and R2-D2. Furthermore, fans were delighted to have Jon Stuart presenting at the show and to show his appreciation, George Lucas had a special edition Storm Trooper action figure made of Stuart and presented it to him at the show. The action figure comes with two heads, one with a goatee, and one without – brilliant!
