Of all the SE changes, why didn’t LFL get Dennis Lawson to redub his ANH and ESB lines? He worked with them for the Rogue Squadron games, so why not get him to quickly do his bits from those two movies? Heck, it could even put an end to “fake Wedge!”

Denis Lawson sounded awful in the Rogue Squadron games. There would be no reason to re-dub Wedge’s (somewhat iconic) lines from SW and ESB with middle-aged Denis Lawson giving a vocal performance akin to Temuera Morrison in '04 ESB. Even by George’s special edition standards, Wedge’s original voice dub doesn’t create any supposed continuity problems with future installments.

That’s usually the starting point for LFL.

Just realised that Boba Fett is the only character in ESB who wins.

What about Veers, who won the Battle of Hoth?

Or Piett, who received a multiple-rank promotion and managed to stay alive after failing Vader twice? That is quite a victory too.

Yes, but Sabacc night was never the same for Piett after Vader choked Ozzel and Needa.

I meant by the end of the film, Piett loses big time when the falcon gets away.

Sure, but if you sum everything up, a multiple-rank promotion and miraculously keeping his life outweigh that, and the bottom line is big win situation for him. 😉

Piett: What… How can you do this? This is outrageous! It is unfair! How can you be in command of the fleet and not be an Admiral?

It’s interesting to think that the only time the big three are together in TESB is in Luke’s medical bay on Hoth.

And there’s exactly one shot where we see all three together:

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

The SE scenes of Vader taking his shuttle from Bespin to his Star Destroyer feature the Lambda-class shuttle from ROTJ, rather than the “inverted TIE bomber” shuttle Captain Needa is glimpsed using during one shot earlier in ESB.

I wonder if showing Vader’s shuttle was ever considered back in 1980? I’ve thought it’s not being seen originally was a result of setting a pace for the climax when editing the film.

If they did it wouldn’t be the ROTJ model, maybe it would have to be the TIE version that Captain Needa used.
