A "Star Wars" blooper reel has emerged from the 1970s iconic sci-fi film revealing a side of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia not before seen by those beyond the film's production.

In the two-and-a-half minute clip, we realize the force wasn't always strong with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford who stumble over lines, and in other scenes we see a more comical side of the sinister storm troopers tripping over themselves while slipping around the floor as their uniforms fall apart.

In another outtake, we see the Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, played by veteran English actor Alec Guinness get nearly sacked in the face by Chewbacca's massive arm, while Hamill asks for the correct pronunciation of "supernova."

The bloopers, which were apparently first shown during the San Diego Comic-Con 2013 over the summer, were only recently uploaded to YouTube for the masses this past Sunday by Star Wars fan Neil Bowyer.

In his blog post about the Star Wars blooper reel titled "The Force Wasn’t Strong in this One," blogger James Robert Shaw attributed the clip to editor and author J. W. Rinzler who recently published his book via kindle, titled "The Making of Star Wars."

Rinzler "was trawling through the Lucas archives, looking for material for his making of books on the original three Star Wars films" when he came upon the outtakes, Shaw wrote.

The "Star Wars" blooper reel comes at a time when the upcoming "Star Wars VII" episode has made headlines for staff changes and released details about the upcoming movie.

On Thursday, Lucasfilm announced director J.J. Abrams, of "Star Trek" and "Lost" fame, and Lawrence Kasdan, who co-wrote "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi," have been tasked with scripting duties for "Star Wars VII," replacing Academy Award-winning screenwriter Michael Arndt.

Lucasfilm did not elaborate on its decision to replace Arndt in the announcement.

Additionally, over the summer Abrams added to the anticipation surrounding the film by confirming rumors that original trilogy cast members Hammill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher, (Princess Leia), Ford (Han Solo), and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) would reemerge in "Star Wars VII," though he would not say what roles they would play.

"Star Wars VII" is due out in 2015 with shooting scheduled to begin next spring.
