Star Wars: Behind the Magic is an interactive CD-ROM released in the fall of 1998 by LucasArts. It was designed as an in-depth look at the original trilogy and features a preview for Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

CharacteristicsEdit

Behind the Magic is spread over two discs. Its features include a detailed look at the original trilogy (with a complete script); details of the characters, locations, and technology; and a look at the making of the movies. A searchable glossary of entries is available. Several games are also included, including a trivia game and an area where you can test weapons on a stormtrooper.

Perhaps the most celebrated feature of Behind the Magic is its inclusion of several deleted scenes from Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. These include the famous "Biggs scene," where Luke Skywalker and Biggs Darklighter talk on Tatooine, and a scene where Luke talks to his friends after witnessing the opening space battle. Two other bits of rough footage are included: one of Luke watching the space battle through binoculars and a rough cut of the Mos Eisley cantina scene.

The CD-ROM also contained a timeline of Star Wars events, which is now outdated by the release of the prequel trilogy and more Expanded Universe material. Some details later overturned include setting Obi-Wan Kenobi's birth year to 60 BBY instead of 57 BBY, placing the events of Episode III at 20 BBY, and placing the birth of the Skywalker twins at 18 BBY.
