    Would you ever pay $699 for a rare LaserDisc copy of "Star Wars: Episode VI — Return of the Jedi" on eBay?  

    One person did just that and ended up finding 30 minutes of never-before-released behind-the-scenes clips including a blooper reel for the film. 

    All together, the footage adds up to 50 scenes from "Return of the Jedi."  

    Since then, he's been posting the footage found to Facebook as user rotjeditdroid.  

    Here's a list of some of the footage found: 

    Filming of a conversation between Luke and Yoda from Yoda's point of view.
