    Folks,

    I understand that there are some changes being made to the content of the new SW box set due out later this year. I understand some bits have been re-shot/the CGI re-worked etc.

    Does anyone have any information on what exactly is changing - or a link to some info.

    Thanks in advance

    I dont know about A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back but I can confirm that some changes have been made to Return of the Jedi but not all of the ones listed on IMDB.

    At the end of the 97 SE's where we see shots of Cloud City, Mos Eisley and Courscant celebrating there is now inbetween Mos Eisley and Courscant a celebration scene on Naboo with the gungans on the roof tops celebrating.

    Also, the scene at the very end where Anakin Skywalker (Sebastian Shaw) joins Yoda and Obi-Wan has been changed. Sebastian Shaw no longer appears, Hayden Christian does. Dont ask me why they made this change but apparently something happens or is explained in Episode 3 which accounts for it so until Episode 3 is released we wont know for sure why this change was made.

    This has been touched upon in another thread. The image of anakin in the original ROTJ was wrong. When the ghost of Anakin appears at the end of ROTJ he appears as the Jedi Anakin Skywalker and not as Darth Vadar. Now that we see Anakin as Hayden Christensen the Ghost has to be changed to match.

    They will also have to change the scene in ROTJ where Luke takes Darths Helmet off to replace Seb with an older looking Hayden Christensen.

    Have a look here, there are loads of screen grabs and stuff.

    Home Theater Forums

    The good stuff starts happening around page 218 IIRC.

    Can wait for this to come out now, as the image quality looks fantastic. :smashin:

    EDIT

    Found another site with loads of screen caps from all three films.

    Or do they? Alledgedly, Annakin died when he became Vader so the ghost shows his likeness then, hence he hasn't aged in the screenshots from the end of ROTJ.

    SPOILER

    I've seen some screenshots where the footage of Sebastian Shaw being unmasked has been cleaned up and some changes made, but it is still Shaw.

    Afraid the scene when Luke removes Vaders helmet in ROTJ is unchanged and it is still Sebastian Shaw.

    One bit I do hope they change in ANH is when Han is running down the corridor in the Death Star, chasing about 5 Stormtroopers and then goes round the corner to find millions of them. So pointless and annoying.

    I have to say I am disappointed with the planned extras for the disk. I would expect something at least on a par with the Alien Quadrilogy.

    I am sure there will be but not until Episode 3 is released on DVD next November and then shortly after everyone has bought Episode 3 they will release a 13 Disc Boxset with 2 Discs for each film along with a bonus disc lol

    Lots of George Lucas's changes seem that way to me.

    Like this. I mean you arent making a work of art, and some directors like to leave "flaws" in for fans to spot. So much seems endlessly tweaked to make it "perfect" in the GL's eyes when it didnt really need to be changed.

    I dont think i'm a Star Wars fanboy, but i liked things such as Han shooting Gredo first, it showed his rough smuggler side. I wonder if the stormtrooper hitting his head on the doorway will be gone as well...? Maybe a true fanboy will take these digital movies, and reedit them back to the 1978 etc originals? Possible, but hard work.
