Wait, you don't want it to suck?

The Star Wars George Lucas Doesn't Want You To See:

"In 1978, Star Wars won seven Academy Awards. But if you want to watch that
original version, the first of George Lucas’s soon to be seven-part saga, you’ll find it
difficult. In fact, it’s actually impossible to buy an official copy of Star Wars as it was
first released. Lucas doesn’t want you to see that version. Instead, he wants you to
watch the continuously updated special editions—movies with added CGI, changed
sound effects, and whole new scenes.

According to some fans, every element that prompted the Academy to recognize the
original Star Wars has been changed in these new versions. And some of those
fans are now taking it upon themselves to recreate the original Star Wars in a
process they call “despecializing.” They gather in online forums and share their
work—painstakingly reassembling the movie from a handful of different versions of
the film, from VHS to DVD to 35mm print scans using photography and animation
software."

Fully supportive of that effort. I hate the updates. The BluRay updates to the OT were just atrocious.

I, fortunately, have the original originals on the mid-2000s DVD release (when the original originals were on the bonus discs). They are the only versions of the OT I will watch, even though I have the BluRays.

What is so wrong about the new versions? Can someone tell me some examples? From what I remember from the 2004 edit, I did not see that much wrong. Some things were actually even improved over time, IMO, like the fact that the in-universe texts were made more "sci-fiy" instead of just plain English. Since I really like some of the Star Wars games, I also had no problems with the remodeling of alien creatures.

The only bad edits I noticed myself are "Han not shooting first" and "Anakin's Ghost at the end of EP-VI". So can anyone tell me what, aside from this and the nostalgia factor, is causing all those commotions about the edits?


And if anyone actually complains about the "new version" of the EP-V modell of the Emperor, then I can really just chalk it down to nostalgia, so I really hope there are some actual reasons for this commotion.

How ‘Star Wars’ was secretly George Lucas’ Vietnam protest:

"One of the most amusing aspects of the book is when it reveals what a huge
role serendipity played in “Star Wars.” Lucas initially ruled out Harrison Ford
because he thought the audience would be distracted if any cast member from
“American Graffiti” (in which Ford had a tiny part) turned up in his next one. Ford,
unemployed, had returned to his trade, which was carpentry.

One of his gigs was at the American Zoetrope offices where Lucas was having
casting meetings.

Casting director Fred Roos wasn’t being passive-aggressive when he hired Ford
for the carpentry job: The office, he said, simply needed a new door. Spotted by
Lucas, Ford not only installed one, but stepped through another: into a galaxy
far, far away. Imagine what a different set of films would have resulted if Lucas
had gone with his second choice — Christopher Walken."

'Star Wars' Stories May Span Multiple Genres, Hints Lucasfilm Exec:

"When someone says “Star Wars” to you, what does that conjure in your mind?
Memories of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher fighting the Galactic Empire,
probably — or perhaps the animated goodness that was Cartoon Network’s Star
Wars: The Clone Wars series. According to one Lucasfilm executive, however, we
may be thinking too small."

See:

https://screen.yahoo.com/star-wars-s...153820909.html


================================================== ====


This is how Luke Skywalker looks in the new Star Wars:

"Mark Hamill appeared yesterday at the Golden Heart Gala in Los Angeles
sporting a full beard and long hair. Since they are filming now, I think it's safe to
say that this is how he looks on the new Star Wars Episode VII by J.J. Abrams. So
I photoshopped his face on top of Obi Wan to get Master Skywalker."

At this point, let's move the discussion of Episode VII to its own thread and leave this thread for general discussion of the new era of Star Wars.
