Then I took a closer look at the screenshot. "The Star Wars logo looks funny--shouldn't it have receeded by now??"
Sure enough, i took a look at the Empire of Dreams original crawl footage--it is not the same.
THE UPCOMING OOT DVD CRAWL IS JUST A PHOTOSHOPED VERSION OF THE EPISODE IV CRAWL.
Here are screenshots.
From the trailer:
the ACTUAL original crawl:
Take a look at the Star Wars logo. In the original crawl, everything moved at a different speed, and the Star Wars logo completely dissapeared before the text came. When Episode IV was added they had to bunch the logo and text together to make it all fit, as well as reformatting the text.
The Empire of Dreams footage is already transfered to video in the Lucasfilm archives. Why the hell would they do this???
yet another stab in the heart...

"When George went back and put new creatures into the original Star Wars, I find that disturbing. It’s a revision of history. That bothers me."
