I know. That’s why I said “almost”. But, most of the visual effects were CGI except mainly the spaceship/control station scenes. The spaceship from the negotiations scene was defiantly an old school model explosion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd6sbCi4qgA). As was the scene near the end when Anakin Skywalker blew up the Control Ship and Yoda (before the release of the DVD) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFcWCpxynuA) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz8RgJ_9lwc). Also, the DVD releases for TPM aren’t particularly that bad compared to other home video releases. It’s much better then the VCD and possibly better then the VHS in some aspects. Though, the Laserdisc release will always be the better way to watch the original theatrical version of TPM.
