Luke jumps out and runs to the smoking holes that were once his home. Debris is scattered everywhere and it looks as if a great battle has taken place.
LUKE: Uncle Owen! Aunt Beru! Uncle Owen!
Luke stumbles around in a daze looking for his aunt and uncle. Suddenly he comes upon their smoldering remains.
He is stunned, and cannot speak. Hate replaces fear and a new resolve comes over him.
SPACE: Imperial TIE fighter races toward the Death Star.
DEATH STAR - DETENTION CORRIDOR: Two Imperial guards followed by Darth Vader, open an electronic cell door to enter Princess Leia's holding cell.
Her face is filled with defiance, which slowly gives way to fear as a giant black torture robot enters after Darth Vader.
VADER: And, now Your Highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden Rebel base.
The torture robot gives off a steady beeping sound as it approaches Princess Leia and extends one of its mechanical arms bearing a large hypodermic needle.
The door slides shut and the long cell block hallway appears peaceful.
TATOOINE - WASTELAND: There is a large bonfire of Jawa bodies blazing in front of the Sandcrawler as Ben and the robots finish burning the dead. Luke drives up in the speeder and he walks over to Ben.
BEN: There's nothing you could have done, Luke, had you been there. You'd have been killed, too, and the droids would be in the hands of the Empire.
LUKE: I want to come with you to Alderaan. There's nothing here for me now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.
TATOOINE - WASTELAND: The Landspeeder with Luke, Artoo, Threepio, and Ben in it zooms across the desert.
The speeder stops on a bluff overlooking the spaceport at Mos Eisley.
It is a haphazard array of low, grey, concrete structures and semi-domes. A harsh gale blows across the stark canyon floor.
BEN: Mos Eisley Spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.
TATOOINE - MOS EISLEY: Mos Eisley is a spaceport and home of the Mos Eisley Cantina featuring a musical group called Figrin D'an the Modal Nodes.
From a distance, the spaceport looks like a haphazard collage of low-grade concrete, stone and plastoid structures that spread outward from a central power-and-water distribution plant like the spokes of a wheel.
At a distance, the smooth circular depressions of launch stations look like craters pockmarking the landscape.
The town is really larger than it appears, as a good portion of it lies underground. In fact, the town has a population of around 40,000 to 60,000 people, varying seasonally. It was built from the beginning with commerce in mind. Even the oldest of the town's buildings was designed to provide protection from Tatooine's twin suns.
The buildings appear primitive from the outside and most of them actually are. The Mos Eisley Cantina was one of the spaceport's original blockhouses. It is the haunt of freighter pilots and a host of other dangerous characters.
MOS EISLEY - STREET: The speeder is stopped on a crowded street by several combat-hardend stormtroopers who look over the two robots. A Trooper questions Luke.
TROOPER: How long have you had these droids?
LUKE: About three or four seasons.
BEN: They're for sale if you want them.
TROOPER: Let me see your identification.
Luke becomes very nervous as he fumbles to find his ID while Ben speaks to the Trooper in a very controlled voice.
BEN: You don't need to see his identification.
TROOPER: We don't need to see his identification.
BEN: These are not the droids your looking for.
TROOPER: These are not the droids we're looking for.
BEN: He can go about his business.
TROOPER: You can go about your business.
BEN: Move along.
TROOPER: Move along. Move along.
