so did anyone hear about Lucas adding in over 100 new effects shots in THX-1138?
i wonder if he's gonna make the original still available or just the bastarised versions?
lol

any thoughts?

Given previous history, it doesn't look good.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Next Lucas movie to have SFX included in it "American Graffiti"

I heard via HTF that the version being released is the same extended cut that was released to home video previously. My understanding is that the theatrical cut was a studio-enforced cut that was never approved by Coppola or Lucas, and the previous home video release reincorporated the cut scenes, which contain nudity I believe. I'm pretty certain the addition of new effects is only a rumor. If Lucas didn't have time to rework the SEs, I doubt he'd find the time for this.

Yes, he will digitally insert Ron Howard's trademark Imagine Entertainment baseball cap on his head.

Yeah? And I thought he will digitally insert Howard the Duck into American Grafitti...
I saw the original theatrical release of the Old Trilogy on the big screen and I'm proud of it...
How did I accomplish that (considering my age) is my secret...

Nah, it'll be Jar Jar instead of Harrison Ford.

American Grafitti's been done already; GL inserted a sunset into a previously grey sky when it was released on DVD.

Seriously? Well, I guess it could have been worse. Could be the SE/UE.

Never saw the original so the changes won't mean jack to me.

OK, I just couldn't stand to wait & wonder until the DVD gets released, so I e-mailed Lucas. He said he's gonna change the following:

- the characters will be sporting weird 70's-style hairdos, hero's hair will be dyed bright green to single him out from the crowd
- the interiors will be digitally altered so that they appear more colourful - expect some Star Wars stuff in the background as "Easter eggs"
- the robotic policemen are going to be replaced by TechnoNinjas(TM), new idea from Pixar studio, who will be moving with feline grace&speed (this concept was introduced after "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" hit the screens)
- the hero will have to choose between two colorful pills at some point in the plot
- there will be plucky comic relief called ZZ-88, with his favorite line "THX-1138, you be in a big kaka now..."
- the hero will have a mysterious scar on his forehead that was there since childhood
- ...

All of this to bring us the real version he has on his mind, but which couldn't be completed 30 years ago since he wasn't sleeping on $$$ as he does now
