MORE CHANGES!!!

Author
Time
I was just on theforce.net and they say that more changes are on the way! the 1997 Star Wars (butchered) Special Edition will have more changes in it. Does bother anyone else, we have been fighting for a year to preserve the TRUE versions of Star Wars and more scenes will be added. I just makes me mad that my favorite movie trilogy will be altered even more. If this is indeed true I will stay with my VHS tapes of the Original Theatrical Releases.

Sticking with my VHS until bootlegs are obtained has been my plan for a while now.

At this rate, the only thing that's going to stop Lucas from continually altering the trilogy (and, eventually, the prequels as well when better technology is available down the road) will be his death. Sad to say, but true.

The only thing that could get me to like the new SE versions is if they added the Luke and Biggs scene on Tatooine.

and deleted some other scenes.

I would love to see all the Biggs/Luke footage that was shot. There's just not enough of an emphasis on the strength of their relationship. I always felt that to be a fault of the movie. Even as a kid, I never understood how a guy who appears on screen all of 30 seconds could mean so much to Luke.

I agree with you 110%!
I didnt even know who Biggs was for a short amount of time because whenever we saw him he had a helmet on... and i always got confused...

Do you think that when he *gulp* dies, the OOT will get released?





NOT THAT I AM HOPING FOR IT, YOU UNDERSTAND. IT WOULD STILL BE THE SECOND WORST DAY OF MY LIFE.

who knows...
if thats the only way we could get the trilogy then i dont wish death upon him but i sure aint gonna cry when it happens... after all its not like he cares about his fans anymore... so why should people care about him...

think about it this way...
its obvious that Lucas knows people want the original (SOOO OBVIOUS!)
so if he is planning on releasing it one day why not just tell us that... he thinks he'll sell more by telling his fans he's never gonna release it??

as much as people are saying this is some big marketing ploy (which i wish it was) it's not...
the only way it will ever be released is if 20th Century Fox puts pressure on him to release it....
just my opinion though...
i could (and hope i am) wrong...

even if they put pressure on him i doubt that it would matter, he owns all the rights.

I dont think it is just a marketing ploy.

Around 1995 when they re-released the original trilogy on vhs, it included interviews with Leonard Maltin, and in the interview Lucas said the original trilogy would never be released on home video again.

Where do you see that? Because I couldn't find anything of this sort on TFN. You're NOT referring to that bulls*it "list" of idiotic never-real "changes" that was made up by someone a while ago and debunked by Moriarty from AICN? The one with "an image of Christensen replaces Sebastian Shaw, Padme is inserted in RotJ as Leia's memory", etc.?

Moriarty also mentioned that no changes were planned for the DVD release other than maybe some small cleaning, such as sabers and remnants of bluescreen lines.

It is all but official that the 2004 DVDs won't be exactly the same as the 1997 Special Editions. The digital bits has reliable sources that say this. Not just fan rumors actually industry sources. Though I doubt the changes will be to great. Like Jay said probably just more line deletion and saber work. Stuff that should have been done in 1997. There will be alot more changes coming in 2007 for the 30th aniversery Ultimate Editions.

I was thinking "dork," but dolt works just as well.
