New Star Wars Blu-Ray Changes [Videos]


----------------

Have you heard? The new editions of Star Wars on Blu-ray, which are being released on Sept. 16, feature a few little changes that are supposed to make the movies better. Fortunately, there’s not supposed to be anything major such as the “Han shot first” fiasco that was introduced in the 1997 re-release of “A New Hope”. Here are a few of those changes for your viewing pleasure:

Obi-Wan’s new dragon impression:

Jabba’s Palace’s new door:

Tie fighters added to the final Return of the Jedi battle scene. (At the end of the video)

    • That's the one. XD
      Nothing like wrecking one of the most climactic scenes of the whole series. Who could watch that and *not* think of the other Noooooo.
      Sadly, Lucas is just showing how much of a fluke it all was. Either that or he has a brain disease.

  1. Let's see, clip by clip….

    New Ben dragon call: Crap. It literally sounds (to me)like they just pulled some audio from that scene in the Family Guy version.

    Jabba's Door: Meh. Looks a bit fake, but whatever, it's a door.

    Death Star scene: Couldn't really see that much different…

    Ewok with Eyelids: Seriously? This one doesn't even deserve my attention.

  2. I wonder why Lucas refuses to release unedited by high quality DVD/blurays of the original trilogy? Lots of fans would buy them. Or is that the problem, that lots of fans would buy them? >_>

  3. Ok….as to the krayt dragon call….. WTF? It sounded good in the original and anyone who knows what a krayt dragon is (SWG players, especially) would have fun like mad at that sound. The new one? Ugh! Makes me so mad.

  4. I did a t-shirt design when the DVDs were released, but with the blurays it's even more valid: "George Lucas raped my Childhood" (you can find it on redbubble.com btw ^^)

    why can't he just leave the movies the way they were and just fix some effects and colors?!
    new eyes for the ewoks: ok
    new door for jabba: ok
    new krayt-scream: whay again?! was the 2004 one not bad enough?!
    Vader screams "nooo": no! no! no! this destroys the scene…

    let's look forward to the 3D-Editions and even more changes – the versions GL ever wanted. again.

  5. Next up he'll be doing digital recasting…
    Obi Wan will be played by Gilbert Gottfried
    Han Solo will be played by Carrot Top

    (I cannot be held responsible for any aneurisms caused by trying to imagine the charactorial substitutions I have written. Visualize them at your own risk ; )

    For heaven's sake SOMEBODY purchase the rights to this franchise from him before he destroys it.
