    For Immediate Release:

    Original Star Wars Trilogy Special Super Lightsaber Edition Theatrical Re-Re-Release Jubilee & Blu Ray

    Coming soon to a theatre near you: Original Star Wars Trilogy Special Super Lightsaber Edition Theatrical Re-Re-Release Jubilee Blu Ray?

    The movies we all know and love, movies that have been tinkered and tinkered with, will be re-re-released nationwide in theatres in new tinkered glory a month before Episode VII is released. I saw an advanced screening of these three movies at a private coffeehouse event in Kansas City.

    Less than 20 people were in attendance. I was sworn to secrecy and signed several different non-disclosure agreements … but it was so shocking that I had to spill the beans. So be it if I am named in a lawsuit from Disney.

    I will detail some of the most obvious and egregious additions that I noticed. I am sure there were more. It will take additional viewings to catch them all.

    Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

    1.) The grave of Anakin Skywalker’s mother Shmi can be seen in wide shots of the Lars homestead moisture farm on Tatooine.

    2.) “He was the best star-pilot in the galaxy and a cunning warrior,” says Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker. Luke replies, “He was also a great podracer.”

    3.) During the iconic R2-D2/Princess Leia Organa hologram “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope” speech, when Leia mentions General Kenobi serving her father in the Clone Wars, a hologram photo of a smiling Jimmy Smits’ Bail Organa, cape and all, from the prequel trilogy, appears to her left.

    4.) Added Boba Fett dialogue in the Jabba the Hutt/Han Solo docking bay 94 scene: “Mighty Jabba, it’s just like my dad Jango used to do.”

    5.) When the planet Alderaan is destroyed by the Death Star we’ve always seen Obi-Wan feel a disturbance in the force. In this version, immediately afterwards there is a cut to Master Yoda on Dagobah that shows, he too, feels the disturbance.

    6.) Just before the fight between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan begins, Vader says, “We meet again at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the master. No high ground for you this time. You’ve always underestimated my power. Die!”

    Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

    1.) While searching for Luke after he does not arrive at the Hoth base, R2-D2 makes a veiled references to C-3PO’s memory being erased in the past to which 3PO replies, “I wish the Maker were here to discipline you twerp!”

    2.) When Han Solo says, “Laugh it up fuzz ball” to Chewbacca on the ice planet Hoth, there is additional dialogue from Solo: “Don’t make me send you back to densely forested Kashyyyk , your home world, my furry, tall friend!”

    3.) It was a nice touch that, during the scene where Lord Vader is in his chamber talking to the holographic Emperor, there is a holo-photograph on the console of Anakin Skywalker standing next to Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s young padawan learner from The Clone Wars animated series.

    4.) “Judge me by my size do you?” Master Yoda says to Luke as they are training on Dagobah, “I’ve beheaded many an enemy twice as me large! In the Clone Wars, yes! Emperor Palpatine I fought. With lightsaber! Yes!”

    5.) After the rebels are turned over to Darth Vader on Bespin’s Cloud City, Vader makes a comment to Lando Calrissian, upon looking at the broken pieces of C-3PO, that he was the one who had built him.

    Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi

    1.) At Jabba's palace there are a plethora of additions. There is a picture of Jabba’s son Rotta, as a baby, on the wall. An elderly Watto holds a conversation with a sleeping Gamorrean guard.

    2.) A small scene was added after Leia is taken into custody at Jabba’s palace where Boba Fett cries at his father’sMandalorian armorhelmet, which is glorified on an alter of sorts.

    3.) At the Great Pit of Carkoon, R2-D2, instead of launching the light saber towards Luke, instead rockets over the sarlacc pit to the skiff and joins the battle.

    4.) After Master Yoda dies, as Luke is speaking with Obi-Wan about Darth Vader being Luke’s father, much new dialogue is awkwardly added/changed through extensive use of computer technology: “He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. He killed Younglings Luke - cut them down like Mynok chewing on power cables. I thought I defeated him on the volcanic planet Mustafar after our deadly duel. You mother died of a broken heart. So sad, Padmé, so sad. So what I told you was true... from a certain point of view.”

    That is all I can remember. I wish there were more.

    Hey I was there too! You forgot a few:

    1) When Obi-Wan appears on Hoth, his dialogue is changed to "You will go to the Dagobah system. There you will be trained by Yoda, who taught me the basics in lightsaber class before I became apprenticed to Qui-Gon Jinn."

    2) In "Return of the Jedi", the Emperor now says, when Vader hands him Luke's saber, "Ah, your lightsaber. A Jedi and a Sith's weapon. Much like your father's. And mine."

    :rolleyes: Let's not get carried away.

    Also, like Yoda didn't mentor Obi-Wan? He was barely ready to take the trials and then Qui-Gon dided...all of a sudden, Obi-Wan is a member of the council and very close to Yoda and Windu 10 years later.

    And the "weapon of a jedi?" Oh...okay...good only Jedi should have lightsabers. I mean...who wants to see sword battles? Nah...boring.

    Hate the PT for whatever reasons you want, but don't pretend that it completely counter-dictates the OT. AFterall...it only took Obi-Wan from 4-6 to throw us the Jedi "certain point of view" when it comes to the truth. Let's not get hasty about how people say things as fact in the OT.
