I queued up around the block at the old Odeon cinema to see Star Wars,The empire strikes back and Return of the Jedi Loved the triology but it should have been left at that Guess IT will have something to share with this generation but IT agree Lucas is now just in it for the money 4 Billion of it

For some reason, I`ve never been totally enamoured with Kenny Baker. he always overplayed his role as R2-D2, being basically nothing more than a puppeteer, and not a fantastic one at that. He could jiggle the dustbin and rotate the head, but to hear him in interviews, the entire series would have collapsed around him

But here he is, giving an interview to the BBC, thankful that he`s more or less guaranteed another 3 paycheques

Given the past history of George Lucas, Disney need to be careful he has made a lot of money out of this but it probably wont try and stop him trying to tweek the contract every couple of years wth a Special Edition contract, a 40th anniversary version contract, and a special who signed the contract first version. 

Hallsey

P.S. the video of George and Kathleen Kennedy is a worry. Old Kathleen, couldn`t answer or say anything without looking at George for support and concern that she isn`t saying the right thing to the interviewer. She is the biggest worry for me, i think you can tell she has no idea and is a bigger and worse puppet than Yoda was in the Phantom Menace (originally).

Actually I`m beginning to think this could be a Good Thing myself. 

I don`t for one minute think there`s a snowball`s hope in hell of seeing the 1977 cut of Star Wars as I`m certain GL has both destroyed the original materials in favour of his 1997 and 2004 Frankenversions, and made damn sure there`s a clause in the contract with Disney that he gets custody of the Mouse if they even suggest issuing the original edit. 

I do think that Disney will exploit the whole Star Wars franchise more expertly than Lucasfilm on its own did.  I think we`ll hopefully see other peoples` takes on the Star Wars universe.  We`ll see a switch from the merchandising inspiring the movies to the movies inspiring the merchandising (as it should be).  We may even see proper writers writing the scripts instead of George Lucas and a yes-man who can use a word processor.

As I see it, the only problem is if George Lucas sees the deal as "business as usual".  He needs to be there as Star Wars equivalent of the Great Bird of the Galaxy - the person with the overall vision - but he needs to let other kids play with his toys now.

The one before they added "Episode IV" to the scrolling titles at the start?

That`s the feller.

Personally, I`d be happy to compromise - leave in the "improved effects", just restore the Greedo scene to its original state and bin the subsequent Jabba scene as it only repeats the information given in the Greedo scene and spoils the reveal of Jabba in Jedi.

My "theatrical edition" DVD has that version on disc one and special edition <spit> on disc two.

Same with Empire and ROTJ.


Obviously not BDs but keeps me happy ;-)
