'Star Wars': Rare Archival Footage Shown at Celebration Had Funny 'New Hope' F— Bomb

Even in a galaxy far, far away, there is bound to be some cussing. 

At Star Wars Celebration in Florida over the weekend, among the many exhibitions was one hosted by John Knoll, chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic.

In the panel, Knoll showed unused footage from A New Hope, which included an apparently never-before-seen outtake of Angus MacInnes, playing Gold Leader, dropping an F— bomb when he flubbed a line. 

"A f—. I'm sorry," MacInnes said in the footage posted on YouTube by The Cinema Realm.

Needless to say, the mistake got a big laugh from the Celebration crowd. 

Other rare footage in that same exhibition included a longer shot of Leia's (Carrie Fisher) exchange with Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) when he gives the order for the Death Star to destroy Alderaan. 

"And you call yourselves human," Leia seethes.
