Lucas Making more Changes to Star Wars for the Bluray Release.

Back in 1997 George Lucas released the Special Edition of the original Trilogy of Star Wars.
The three films looked better than ever, as they had been re-mastered. However in each of the movies, there where some small changes made. Lucas clamed that this was his original vision and was unable to do it at the time due to technology not being up to the task. The new or edited screens has CGI in them. which was not even around in the 70’s and very basic in the early 80’s.

Some love them, some hate them and demand the original version of the trilogy be released on DVD.
But one thing is for sure, everyone agrees that it is Han that shoot first and not Greedo.

With the up coming Release of both Trilogy, It has been rumoured that Lucas is making changes to these as well.
These changes are in are in the sound track. One comes at the end of ‘Return of the Jedi’. It is being claimed that Lucas is adding two instances of Darth Vader turning and screaming ‘Nooooo!’ during the scene where he throws the Emperor to his death.

The other alteration is said to be a change to the Krayt Dragon Call used by Obi-Wan Kenobi in ‘A New Hope’ to scare off the Tusken Raiders attacking Luke Skywalker.

Final Change is not with sound but removing the Puppet of Yoda from ‘The Phantom Menace’ and replacing it with a CGI version.

These changes have been leaked onto YOU TUBE, I have found a set that have not yet been removed.

I for one say these changes are not for the better.

  1. I saw an article about this the other day. Another change they’re making is to “fix” the Wampa ice monster’s arm. When it kills the tauntan, they just had a guy in a partial costume do that and you can see part of the his sleeve. (only in widescreen, it’s cut out in “fullscreen” movies) They’re digitally covering the sleeve with fur to match the rest of the “arm.”

    If you ask me, this is a bunch of BS, he should just leave the movies alone, but they’re his movies. Though, he’s supposed to be including the original films on the discs also, with none of the 1997-present changes. Fortunately, Blu-Rays are big, so you can do that. 😉
