I’m not sure if anyone has posted a topic on this matter before, but …
For those of you who don’t have Episode III on DVD or haven’t noticed this peace of information on the extra’s DVD. There’s going to be yet another edit of the Original Trilogy. I heard George Lucas say it on a short ‘Darth Vader’ documentary on the 2nd disc of the Episode III DVD. He clearly states that new things will be added to Episodes IV, V and IV, things that we haven’t seen before.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Here’s a screen shot of the documentary (with English subtitles turned on so you can read what he’s saying):
So, his ‘final’ version of the Original Trilogy (the one that was released on DVD almost a year ago), the movies as he originally envisioned them to be but couldn’t make back then due to money, time and technology constrains, were actually … well … NOT what he claimed them to be when they were released. He told us the same lie with the 1997 Special Editions and now it seems there will be another ‘final’ version.
To George I’d have to say: “Stop it right there, mister Lucas!”
Give the loyal fans what they’ve been asking for: an un-edited version of the Original Trilogy.
After that you can mess up the movies as much as you like and no one will blame you for it (and just few fans will buy them, and that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it).
