    At least for the streaming version, it shouldn't be that hard to fix it. They already tweaked some other stuff from the films.

    Why is it "Disney"'s responsibility?

    Nothing has been tweaked since George sold to Disney. Any alterations in the streaming or UHD versions are from the restoration work done for the 3D releases that were planned and then scrapped just before the sale,.

    It is very, very common for movie credits to get names wrong. It happens ALL the time, and you'll frequently see actor's profiles on IMDB and similar places listing certain work like, to use the current example "Sabé (credited as Kiera Knightley)". There's no conspiracy here; move along.

    Did Lucasfilm ever fix Denis Lawson's credit?

    I don't think there's any conspiracy, but... it's kinda embarrassing, and not particularly accommodating.


    I feel like it's in Disney's best interest to fix it now (and yes, I'd imagine that Disney would be the ones to take some sort of action in this case, since I believe we're a bit past 2013 at this point...)

    I honestly didn't notice and I'm sure the general audience doesn't notice either.

    Better question: why hasn’t Disney made a Star Wars Keira Knightly spinoff film yet?
    It seems a better idea than reintroducing every minor OT character because at least Keira Knightly is a famous actress now, plus she’s worked with disney many times.

    Whoa, who said anything about a conspiracy? I just meant Disney could do it because it's easier to update a streaming version (whereas disc releases would take a little more time and work).
