Video: 36-Year-Old 'Star Wars' Blooper Reel Surfaces

Watch this vintage video while you can. A lost Star Wars blooper reel was recently uploaded on YouTube to the happy surprise for longtime fans. It's a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at all the laughter behind the cast members flubbing lines. While sitting next to Chewbacca, Harrison Ford chuckles when he forgets his lines as Han Solo and eats his headselt. Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia giggles as her costar forgets his line. Mark Hamil reveals he's not quite sure how to pronounce "supernova" and babbles.

The next chapter in the series, Star Wars: Episode VII, is scheduled to release in 2015. Until then, we can get a good laugh at this flashback.
