Darth Vader

So remember yesterday when I wrote about a rumor regarding the upcoming Star Wars Blu-ray Editions coming out in September? It was some shocking news about how in the Blu-ray for Return Of The Jedi a revision was made so that Darth Vader now shouts “Nooooo!!!” when he stops the Emperor from killing Luke. [Read Nooooo!!! Did George Lucas Make Darth Vader Even Wimpier In The ‘Star Wars’ Blu-ray Edition?]

Well, guess what? It’s true, it’s all TRUE! A representative from LucasFilm confirmed the news today to the NY Times.

“Yes—Darth says NO.”

Seriously? How much more can George Lucas desecrate the Star Wars movies? Wait, I really shouldn’t ask that question, because there’s plenty more footage to doctor up in the future.

When I hysterically told this news to my mom before writing this up, she asked if if Lucas was changing parts of the movies so that he could always give the fans something new with each release. Now, that’s a logical assumption… for someone who’s NOT a Star Wars fan. I had to explain to her that when it comes to Star Wars, the fans want NOTHING changed; instead, leave everything as it was and so be it. Let’s face it, they could release the original trilogy on DVD and/or Blu-ray every year and just slap a new package on it, and people would buy that shit right up. So, messing with the actual movies is NOT a selling point. So, Mom asks, why does George Lucas keep changing things then? Because he can, Mom, because he can.

I’ve said it before, and now I’ll have to say it again now that the Blu-ray Edition is worthless too: The only versions worth watching are the LaserDisc copies.
