What was cut out? What stayed in the movie? What new information do we have on just WHO did the edit? Why was there never IMAX versions of ROTS or TPM? Did the floating space pear show up? All these questions are answered and more in this shocking, mysterious, hilarious and revealing mystery filled episode!
