UPDATE: It's Official: George Lucas Hates Us
This can be the only explanation. Apparently the Beard has added one of the most fan blasted moments from the new trilogy to the Blu-ray versions of the originals. Click to find out what it is..
Some fans over at TheForce.net, the Blu-Ray.com forums and the DVDTalk forums have gotten hold of the new Blu-rays of the original Star Wars trilogy and are dissecting them for any changes that might have been made. They came up with a couple of things but only one is truly terrifying.
I'm sure you all remember the bit in Revenge Of The Sith when The Emperor keeps the mortally wounded Anakin alive by fitting him with robotic bits and turning him into Darth Vader. It should have been one of the most iconic moments in cinema history. Instead it's a silly load of old wank as Vader takes a couple of hilarious Frankenstein's Monster steps and screams "NOOOOOOOOOOOO". Well thanks to Mr Lucas, we can now relive some of that when we watch our brand spanking new original trilogy Blu-rays..
Lmao. Here is another change. Obi Wan's "Krayt Dragon" call to warn off the Sand People now sounds like he's having a very nice time in The Blue Oyster. And apparently the Ewoks now blink in Jedi too. No, I'm not making this shit up.
Note: This is not the actual Blu-ray clip, youtube user WideAsleepFilm synced the MP3 from the clip with the original footage so it might be slightly different even though the audio will be the same. Anyway, this sucks. I know I know, it's just a movie and I'm not one of these "Lucas raped my childhood" types. But I will certainly stand up and say that he royally [frick]ed up some great movies and their legacy. I mean is it even in question? Leave good enough alone for God's sake. If you're so adamant to change Star Wars then re-release the new trilogy, only with a different cast, script writer and director.
