From here you can download and read the various drafts and shooting scripts that were written to make each film in the STAR WARS trilogy. From George Lucas's original 1973 story synopsis to the published 1983 version of Return of the Jedi, we have most of them - unfortunately not a complete set (yet!). If you want to read more about the scripts, go to The Jedi Bendu Script List, a commented list for the true connoisseur which lists ALL the scripts ever written for the Saga.

GEORGE LUCAS: "The way I work is that I cut the movie together, I look at it and figure out what I'm missing. At that point, it's more about how the movie flows together rather than how the script flows together. I'm acknowledging more and more that a script and a movie are two different things." (Quote from Star Wars: The Annotated Screenplays, 1997, p. 319)
