The True Story of Biggs Darklighter

Biggs Darklighter was a rebel fighter in the movie Star Wars. He was Luke Skywalker’s friend from Tatooine and his wingman during the attack on the Death Star, who came to an unfortunate end. He had little screen time, but still ended up with a fan following. What you might not know is that Darklighter originally had a bigger role that was ultimately cut from the final film.

Jamie Benning tells that story in his new documentary Blast it Biggs! Where are you?!, with deleted scenes from Star Wars: A New Hope and an interview with actor Garrick Hagon, who played the role of Darklighter. Along the way, we learn more tidbits about the filming of Star Wars, like the forbidden horseback rides and a glimpse of the rebel pilots wearing flip flops to beat the heat. -via The Daily Dot
