I'm eagerly awaiting the release of the DVDs in September. Not because I'm buying them (I have absolutely no intention of buying them let alone even watching them) but because I want to see the reaction people have when they first see Hayden in ROTJ and other ridiculous changes that they don't yet know about. And although a LOT of people use the internet and whathaveyou, Ive noticed that most people interested in the DVDs don't know what their getting, precisely. Here's a typical conversation between me and a family member, friend, co-worker, ect...

Them: Hey, you like Star Wars, right? Are they out on DVD?

Me: The official release is in Sept.

Them: Cool! Those are movies are definitely ones I need to own.

Me: Good for you. Although you do realize that these aren't necessarily the ones you saw way back when.

Them: Huh?

Me: Well, George Lucas has "changed" some stuff around. For instance, Hayden Christiansen now appears in Return of the Jedi.

Them: Hayden who?

Me: Hayden Christiansen. He plays Anakin in the prequel movies. Basically, they cut out the scenes with the guy who originally played Luke's dad at the end, and have now added Hayden Christiansen in so, uh, everything "matches". There are also some other changes.

Them: Why'd they do that??????

Me: ...

Anyways, although the changes are still rumors, I just think that you're going to hear a noticeable befuddlement on the part of the general public when they pop their "Original Trilogy" into the DVD player and find out what they got. It will be interesting to say the least.
