Whether Boba survived or not really doesn't redeem the fact that his exit from the series is incredibly lame. Considering how cool he was in The Empire Strikes Back having his death as honerable as Jabbas guards is just suckky. I would love if we could get a shot of Boba crawling out of the pit and add a scene of him getting a kick ass death for the Ultimate Edition.

Yes, it would, but there is no need to cuss about it.

Ever consider that the EU messed up the movies by having Boba escape the sarlaac? they should have CG'd some razor sharp teeth on that parrot's beak to remove any doubt that he survived.

Lucas screwed up giving Boba Fett such a lame death scene in the first place. The EU fixed his mistake, which it seems to have been doing a lot of since TMP.

Actually, they screwed things up by adding the beak.
The Sarlaac had rows of sharp, downward pointing teeth to prevent things from escaping. I remember it quite plainly.

Adding the beak removes the purpose of those teeth.

That's right. The old Sarlacc was way more scary as it played into the male fears of Vagina Dentata.

That and the unseen/unknown threat is always more disturbing than the seen/known threat.

That beak would expend way too much energy for a creature with such a slow metabolism.

I love the beak. The Sarlacc looks so much more alive. Before it just looked like a Giant vigina. Nothing threatening about it. Normally I like looking at Vaginas but here is the exception. The beak attacking at Lando made his stunt all the more dangerous.

Yeah, the Sarlacc definitely looked like a vagina...because vaginas have TEETH AND TENTACLES, right Jimbo? Now it looks like a penis sticking out of your supposed vagina.

Eh-Hem.

The male fear of castration and the Vagina Dentata is well known to any devotees of Freud or people with any knowledge of psychology. More if you're intersted.

The old Sarlacc was perfectly scary, whereas the new one is representative of every misstep Lucas has taken since he got rid of Gary Kurtz.

First, of all, why the hell would you think a vagina would bite your dick off?!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

I'm not really sure.

It doesn't really literally apply to actual teeth more a fear to do with male vulnerability.

I think it tends to be more representative of the wet, scary, dark place with teeth than an actual vagina.

Inviting, mysterious and dangerous.

It's a fear of sudden castration/emasculation/pain that probably has something to do with guilt derived from pleasure and the idea of "what is the very worst thing that can happen?"

I don't believe that any guy has ever wondered truly whether a vagina would bite his dick off or not but Freud is talking about our unconscious fears. And our unconscious fears are not rational.

New sarlaac looked like that plant from Little Shop of Horrors. "FEED ME!"

Notice that the sharp teeth are still there.

I'm not against having the beak, but the beak they gave it wasn't very good. It looks too much like the slug from ESB.

This is weird, but I have never seen the SE-ized Sarlacc. Somehow or another I missed it. To be honest, I've only really watched the SE of ROTJ once and not in theaters. Maybe I got up and walked away to do something or was somehow distracted, but the photos of the Audrey II Sarlacc that are posted on this site are the only times I've seen him. Weird. I guess it's a bit of a blessing. All I remember is the original Sarlacc.
