You're not missing much. You want to watch Episode IV, which was the first one. The newer two (is the third one out yet) are a bit crap - sort of Battlestar Galactica meets the Muppets. If you're after modern sci-fi you're better off with the Matrix (but only the first one!)

Bah! I knew it wouldn't happen, but I was still hoping against hope that he'd allow the original versions to be released, rather than the special editions. Ho hum. I'll probably still buy them anyway. At least I still have the real versions on VHS. Maybe I'll see if I can rip them myself...

stratjakt (596332) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237275)

Some superflous new scenes added, like computer generated spaceships flying around. More computer generated aliens in the background.

In the first film, they took some cutting-room floor footage of Han talking to Jabba as he's preparing to take off in the Millenium Falcon. (I thought I read somewhere that Marlon Brando was actually playing Jabba in that scene). Anyways, they put in a computer generated Jabba walking alongside Han, and it looks pretty cheesy to me.

I hate overused computer animation. I think it looks out of place and fake, and the world of Star Wars was much more believable made out of foam rubber costumes and cheesy props.

The big one that gets all the geeks riled up is they changed the Cantina scene, so that Jabba's bounty hunter shoots at Han, and he kills him in 'self defense'. In the original, Han just shoots him under the table and gets up and leaves.

It effectively changes Han's character from an outlaw who cares only about himself, to some sort of good guy who found himself in trouble.

I haven't seen the special edition versions of the other two movies.

And the slander against Greedo's shooting accuracy continues ...

Re:Special editions only :-( (1)

visgoth (613861) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237258)

Greedo was no bounty hunter, only a poseur with a gun. However, Han should shoot first, as it helps establish his character. He's supposed to be a sneaky asshole at the start. Someone the audience initially distrusts. With Greedo shooting first, he's just a lucky schmuck.

They'll have more releases (4, Insightful)

chia_monkey (593501) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237210)

Let's not forget about who you're talking about. Remember when the first trilogy was released on VHS? And then the widescreen edition. And then the digitally remastered edition. I'm sure they'll just release this, wait a year or two and then release the "classic" edition for people clamoring for it and they'll make loads of money yet again.

Re:Special editions only :-( (3, Interesting)

mkrieger1277 (686142) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237279)

Funny that you mention ripping. I knew that he'd never release the original movies on DVD, so I've been copying my "Definitive Collection" laserdiscs onto DVD via my PC. The end result is pretty good. Very little loss of quality. I'm sure it would look better if I had a nicer LD player for output. Too bad Lucas has to shove the crappy special editions out to the public. Sad to see a once celebrated franchise become the biggest joke out there (well, maybe a close second to the Matrix sequels). :-)

Re:Special editions only :-( (1)

swordboy (472941) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237282)

At least I still have the real versions on VHS.

This was done on purpose. Lucas knew that he could milk all of his pathetic fans (including myself) into buying both VHS and DVD versions.

I will get the DVD version but I'll get a pirated copy and I'll be sure to distribute to all of my friends and family. I'm gonna take pictures of all these DVDs and send it to him for ransom. If he buys back my VHS copy, then I'll be happy to buy my own DVD copy off the shelf and keep it to myself.

Re:Special editions only :-( (1)

benzapp (464105) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237322)

I 100% guarantee they will be 7.4GB DVD's... won't be able to do a straight copy of those. Of course you can pirate it, but it still won't be perfect. not until larger DVD-R's come out.

Re:Special editions only :-( (1, Insightful)

aaaarrgghh (580972) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237337)

The original versions will come out eventually... Pretty much everyone who wants the original versions will be willing to buy the new versions. Then, in a few more years, when Lucas releases the original version on DVD, they'll buy that too. This two-part strategy is profit maximizing. It's very similar to the strategy followed by LOTR.

So has he edited Jar Jar into all three films? (-1)

Trespass (225077) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237104)

ahess247 (209933) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237182)

Actually the secret is this: Lucas has "artistically" re-edited the scene yet again. Now Han and Greedo hug each other and Greedo keels over from a heart attack after being overcome with emotion that they're no longer enemies.....

Han shoots first dammit!

kevcol (3467) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237247)

Who modded this 'Interesting'? Interesting? It's fuckin hilarious and describes Lucas the vulture to a 'T'. Since he can no longer create magic on the screen, he just repackages what he did when he had it to exact more geld from the minions.

Re:HDDVD (1)

3Daemon (577902) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237267)

Maybe. My initial thought was that Lucas probably wants to create some buzz around the StarWars universe again, before releasing EP3.

(It has been a while since EP2, and whilst it did good at the Box Office (or so I believe - to lazy to check my facts... :) ), but he might have picked up on the fans not really digging it.)

Not a democracy? (5, Insightful)

RobertB-DC (622190) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237117)

From the article:
So what are the faithful to do if they don't want to watch the altered 1997 editions of the trilogy? Either give in, or don't buy. "We realize there's a lot of debate out there," says Ward. "But this is not a democracy. We love our fans, but this is about art and filmmaking. [George] has decided that the sole version he wants available is this one."

So you say it's not a democracy? That George "Artist" Lucas can do what he damn well pleases?

Perhaps Lucas has forgotten that he's in the marketplace -- where democracy indeed rules, and the cash register is the ballot box.

My vote will be for the version where Han shoots first. For me, it *is* about "art and filmmaking". Both of which were evident in the original, absent from the remake, and forgotten in the prequels.

grub (11606) | more than 10 years ago | (#8237127)


Please bear with my rant..

When I read of the Star Wars DVD release I immediately thought of the speech Gordon Gekko give the board of Teldon Papers in the movie Wall Street (1987) [imdb.com]
"The point is, ladies and gentleman, is that greed -- for lack of a better word -- is good. Greed is right. Greed works."

Years after the DVD has become ubiquitous they decide to release the original 3 on that medium. It was only a few years ago that they released the VHS set to the consumers.
Lucas "found some time" in his schedule and "was willing and eager to make it happen."
Wow! Thanks, George! The story makes it sound like they're doing us a favour! Yeah right. The only favour is to their bank accounts. The tide of cash flowing in from the "Official VHS set" has slowed to a crawl. They want the consumers to re-purchase the same stuff on a new format. George didn't "[find] some time", the market studies indicated that this is the right time to release the DVDs.

Thanks but no thanks George. After the embarassment of Episodes I & II and your blatant milking of the franchise you've lost a big fan in me. I'd only buy the set if I could guarantee that my money buys the exact slice of pizza you choke on.

"What George did in 1997," Ward explains, "was [to] make the movie he originally wanted to make."


This should answer all the questions below. Forget it. I want the original unaltered versions on DVD. Didn't anyone learn anything from New Coke?

Any chance of us getting the first three movies with those odious "extra" scenes removed or not added?

Skipping work for some DVDs of movies you've seen a million times? That's pretty sad. What next, calling in sick because they are showing reruns of The Nanny?

Too late (1)

Lucas made a big mistake in waiting to release this. He would have made a lot more money if he had released it before he deluted the franchise with Episode's I and II.

Good, even more money for Lucas. This will give him the envy to make those sequels.
Wait a min...
HANDS DOWN! STAY AWAY FROM THOSE DVDs! Trust me, you don't wanna have a chance to see what's next in Lucas'twisted mind.
