Lost Star Wars Return of the Jedi Deleted Scenes Found: Here's the full 30 minutes

Including why Yoda didn't want Obi Wan to tell Luke about his dad.

What would you do if you found a laser disc with deleted scenes from Return of the Jedi? Charlie Owen from Virginia has already been offered $10,000 for his $700 eBay purchase, but he's a collector and doesn't have any interest in selling.  Charlie from just decided to put it on the internet for all to enjoy, first via clips on Facebook and now the full 30 minutes on YouTube (posted below). 

Here's the backstory:

In 1984 a laserdisc with 30 minutes of raw footage from Return of the Jedi was used at a Las Vegas convention to demo a system called EditDroid that Lucas Film was developing.  That laserdisc was never seen again and was thought lost until recently when it was purchased on eBay.
