I don't really have a problem with the existence of the special editions, other than the fact that they are the only versions that Lucas will restore. But a thought crossed my mind given the pending blu ray releases.
What if Lucas were to keep all his special edition changes, but go back and redo the visual effects so that they look more realistic. The biggest issue I have with the special editions is that you can tell what has been added very easily. But I really think that if Jabba, the Dewbacks, the Jabbas palace dancers, and the sarlacc looked more realistic like Gollum, then they'd be much easier to digest.
I'm still hoping a praying for the theatrical versions like everybody else, but I still think there is a place for the special editions and I'd really like to see them perfected as well.
What do you guys think?
