I wasn't aware that Biggs was ever in a final release, but ANH and TESB
both had slight changes made to them after they were released. In ANH,
when Han and Chewie are running from the troops on the Deathstar, you hear
one of the troops in that familiar (cloned) voice say "Close the blast
doors!" Then Han and Chewie just barely jump through them and the troops
come upon the door just as it closes and you hear "Open the blast doors,
open the blast doors." The "Close the blast doors" was cut from subsequent
releases. I don't know why, it takes all the humor out of the next line.
In TESB, when Luke is suspended in the bacta fluid (recovering from the
Wampa attack) there were two views of him. In one release you saw just
Luke, in another you saw Luke over the shoulder of Han and Leia who were
just outside a glass wall looking in. I think the one they finally let
out was with Han and Leia in the picture, but I'm not absolutely sure.
