There isn’t much profanity in a galaxy far, far away. Or, perhaps such words just weren’t that common a long time ago? Or, alternatively, was this decision made to make Star Wars more family friendly? You be the judge!

At Star Wars Celebration, a new NSFW clip from Star Wars: A New Hope (or just “Star Wars,” as they used to call it) debuted, featuring an outtake from Angus MacInnes, who played “Gold Leader” during the Death Star run in the finale of the film. Watch the clip below.

That’s a word I never thought I’d hear officially in relation to Star Wars (interviews with actors aside), even in an outtake! 

Star Wars: A New Hope was released 40 years ago in 1977, at a time when there was much profanity, as there is today (duh). Even when watching a Disney released Marvel Studios blooper reel, you hear the occasional “bleep,” but never full on profanity at this level. Actors certainly have their go-to words ready when they screw up seemingly ridiculous sci-fi dialogue, something that hasn’t changed in four decades. I’m surprised this clip ever saw the light of day without a “bleep!”

Just think of the potential, R-Rated moment Disney passed up for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! When making Rogue One, footage and audio was re-purposed from the end of A New Hope and was incorporated into the new Rebel assault on Scarif. Lucasfilm could have easily brought that F-Bomb to millions of fans around the world, but again, there’s no serious cursing in Star Wars! Just think of the children!
