I heard all the reasons about Hayden and the Redeeming nonsense created his ghost to become young again lol,
crap…

Shaw is a bad choice as well to be honest, since Anakin/Vader died at 45

Anakin/Vader only died at 45 after the prequels made him so young. Shaw was a perfectly fine choice in 1983.

Ghost Shaw worked well in 1983, but It doesn’t anymore. Personally, as I said in my previous post, I’m in favor of replacing the current 20-years old ghost Hayden with a version of Hayden himself that’s closer to his 40s.

Okay, but that doesn’t make it a “bad choice” that they cast Shaw, like you said. You can’t fault them for not having the clairvoyance during the production of RotJ to know that the prequels would contradict them two decades later. It’s not a flaw of the OOT and it’s not something that needed to be fixed.

Yes, but we’re no longer in 1983. Like it or not, there are other films now, and we must see things in a more united context.

Which is why I don’t agree with this attitude toward the OT. The OT came first. The OT portrayed Anakin as being old. The PT contradicted that. It’s not the OT’s fault and it shouldn’t be a good thing to “fix” the OT to fit in with the prequels, the prequels should have fit in with the OT themselves.

I mean, I know that this can annoy many people (especially the cultists of the original theatrical cut), but I am absolutely in favour of “fixing” the OT if this fixing results in a more united and cohesive story and narrows the small contradictions between the movies, again, regardless of who is to blame for these contradictions.

Then why are you posting on the site dedicated to the preservation of the theatrical cuts? Are you like Stardust and other Lucas “cultists” (given that you’re open to using that word) who want to see the OOT buried forever?
