One other thing I’ll say about my second viewing:
Puppet Yoda looked a TON better than I remembered from my first viewing, but every time the fire was directly on his face, he looked weird. I don’t think I’ll have a problem with TLJ puppet Yoda the way I did TPM’s.
The thing i did notice though was how the pupeteers squashed his face up way too much when they closed his mouth, which gave him this strange “puffed out cheeks with no mouth” look
Yep, this right here is the only problem that I still have with TLJ Yoda. Noticed it both times, but everything else looked fine (bar the occasionally weird lighting) the second time around.
Same theater both times for me, though…weird.
Do you think Disney will fix this via CGI for the Blu-Ray?
I’m wondering if Disney has or will tinker with their Star Wars movies like Lucas did and change things for the Blu-Ray release?
This is one of the bad things about not having a recording of the theatrical version to be able to compare to the Blu-Ray release.
I don’t know how many times I’ve watched a movie on Blu-Ray, and I know they’ve changed things from what I saw in the theater. i.e. they use different takes and re-edit it. I even remember the movie ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ in the theater and the boom mic kept dropping down into the picture all throughout the movie. Then on the DVD release, they must have digitally removed the boom mic as I didn’t see it drop into picture like in the theater.
