The cantina scene from Star Wars is one of the most classic scenes in movie history. It introduces Han Solo, we see Obi-Wan Kenobi cut off a dude’s arm and we see a ton of the alien species of the film’s universe. But what would the scene be like without music?
While the cantina music from the movie is loved by fans, it’s still interesting to imagine the scene without the music. The YouTube channel “FilmScoreAnalysis” decided to re-edit the scene without any music. It definitely gives the scene a grittier, darker vibe, whereas the original scene is a little more light.
Take a look at the new scene:
It honestly works either way, so it just comes down to personal preference. Do you like the lighter, happier Star Wars or the darker one?
Of course, we can’t take out all the music from these movies because then we’d be missing out on some of John Williams best work!
