After showing off three behind-the-scenes clips from Return of the Jedi, the Star Wars treasure trove has opened up again for some different clips of Yoda’s iconic death scene.

A fan recently ran across a long-lost LaserDisc loaded with outtakes and behind-the-scenes footage, and has been kind enough to start ripping those goodies and releasing them online.

The latest clip focuses on Yoda’s death scene, and shows some different takes between Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Frank Oz (Yoda) set at Yoda’s hut on Dagobah. It’s a fascinating peek at some of the angles and phrasings that didn’t make the cut.

Check out the clip below, and let us know what you think:
