Both Star Wars trilogies are coming to Blu-ray with this crappy deleted scene (video)

The older Star Wars gets, the more it seems to pop up in my news feed. At "Star Wars Celebratioin V" in Orlando, Florida last week, Jon Stewart interviewed George Lucas about his awesomeness. The big news of the night: both Star Wars trilogies are coming to Blu-ray in 2011. Oh, and they showed a "deleted scene" from Return of the Jedi where Darth Vader, via the Force, asks an overly veiled Luke to join the dark side as the Jedi tinkers with his new green lightsaber. It is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.

Maybe it's me, but this scene doesn't seem real. If it is, I can see why it was taken out...it's completely useless. Fanboys have been wondering about Luke constructing his green lightsaber for years, but we've never seen anything until now. Perhaps the rumors about George Lucas catering to fans and toy sales are true.

At the end of the event, Lucas presented Stewart with his own Star Wars action figure. To watch video of the hour-long interview and see John Stewart as an action figure, head over to Collider.
