Like Big Foot, the mystery surrounding this "missing scene" was so intriguing that it had become lore to Star Wars fans the world over. A lot of research by fans has been done, and little tidbits of information were found that may indicate the existence of this elusive scene, but there was nothing definitive. Even the storyboard that describes this scene was discovered, but there was still no evidence of the scene actually being filmed. Many believe that the lightsaber used in this scene may have been the weapon that is referred to as the "MOM" lightsaber, which is the one that was on display at the Star Wars: The Magic of Myth exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum in 1997-1999, and then in the touring exhibit. This lightsaber had an accessible control box with a removable PCB cover. It also had a hole near the pommel, possibly for the wires. Fast forward 27+ years to August 14, 2010 and Star Wars: Celebration V in Orlando, Florida. The mystery of the elusive missing scene was finally solved, and to the thunderous applause of the crowd, it was shown and announced that it will be edited back into the long-awaited Blu-ray Discs of the Star Wars Saga!
