The Three Female Rebel Pilots Cut From 'Return Of The Jedi'

Always gotta shake my head and chuckle about stuff like this. Only in SW is such minutia considered "news". Probably because some how, even the most insignificant characters get some sort of fan following.


"No official explanation as to why these characters were cut"


Oh, let me take a stab at it: Because they had enough talking head pilots telling us their ship is gonna blow! and they have absolutely no bearing on the overall story of Star Wars whatsoever?


I love you, Star Wars :)

They forgot about the A-Wing pilot's other dubbed line when she flew her flaming ship into the bridge of the Executor: "AAAHHHH!!!" (lol)


I sometimes tend to be one of those rabid fans that devours any and all minutia of detail concerning Star Wars, because let's face it...anything that's even remotely related to it is cool simply by association. But sometimes it can be a little nerdy and too much when they lend too much credence to the most minor of background or supporting characters like these.

I'd never heard about the dubbed pilot until shortly before the Blu-Ray release, and I still wondered until I saw the cutscenes. (I wish the X-Wing pilot footage had made it as well. :-/) Doesn't the Battle of Naboo make the question of female pilots a moot point though?

Never mind the deleted female pilots...I was so disappointed when I discovered the Toshi Station and Biggs scenes weren't restored for the Blu-ray release. The same goes for the cool scene where Vader is reaching out to Luke through the Force while he's finishing-up his new lightsaber in Return of the Jedi. I sure do hope Lucas...er, someone at Disney (lol) restores these scenes and adds them back in one day. Even if they weren't added back into the films, it'd be nice to see them as restored deleted scenes.
