There are many great threads here, but can anyone point me to some of the changes made to the Prequel Trilogy films releases too. Please.

I have viewed the ‘DVDActive•com’s ‘Star Wars - The Changes’ articles (via Web•Archive•org) for the Prequels’ link from oojason’s list above, but the images do not work (load?) for me. Is there any more?

For anyone wishing to chat about specific the Special Edition releases, and changes made for them. As well as a possible (though unlikely) future SE release. And of course, a discussion thread for the changes made to the OOT films (before the 1997 Special Edition), along with a separate thread for the 2006 GOUT DVD release:

‘The Changes to the Original Trilogy films & general Special Edition discussion threads’:-

• The OOT : link (1977-96)

• 1997 SE : link

• 2004 SE : link

• 2006 GOUT : link

• 2011 SE : link

• 2019 SE : link

• 2026 SE : link (“Somehow… Lucas has returned!”); a possible future SE release - though unlikely…
 

Mods, if you feel the above are worthy or helpful threads is it possible for them to be added to ooj’s Index above?

 

Mod Edit: it has bene added to the Index. Thank you. 👍
 

The FE Renegades thread; from the people who post ‘go kill yourself’, ‘fuck you’, ‘let’s throw abuse’, and more at OT staff & members. Four years on and still throwing accusations, slurs and abuse at the OT & anyone outside their Salacious Crumb filled clique. + FE Discord “to vent” more at the OT. Wook’s take.
