The Sith Lord - Episode IV - Archives
Rogue One incorporated never seen film footage from the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Audiences viewed the Red Leader and Gold Leader fight in the battle of Scarif before giving their lives to protect Luke in the battle of the Death Star. This year's Star Wars Celebration revealed even more unused footage from the original film including, a bit about a certain "Sith Lord."
StarWarsNewsNet has a breakdown of the extra bits of Tarkin and Princess Leia along with a rare blooper from Peter Cushing. In one of the extended clips centered on the meeting of the Generals of the Empire on the Death Star, one of the generals refers to Darth Vader as a "Sith Lord."
“I tell you we’ve gone too far. This Sith Lord sent by the Emperor will be our undoing”
Audiences had not heard the title, "Sith Lord" on movie screens until 1999's, The Phantom Menace. It just emphasizes how many seeds Lucas had planted (be them used or unused) in the far, far away galaxy we have all come to know and love. Check out StarWarsNewsNet for the full breakdown and youtube links of the extra footage.
