    Just looked on starwars.com web site and episode 1 is being re-released on 27th may,
    also read on www.dvdcompare.net that 'Note that all releases are OOP and will be re-released with some changes by George Lucas. '

    Anyone know what changes and if its worth buying ?

    thanks

    There had been rumours for a while of replacing the puppet yoda with CG yoda.

    I would personally like to see the extended maul/qui-gon fight on tattooine - but don't expect to see that for some time

    Is there much left out then? I could never work out why Qui-Gon and Anakin were all of the sudden running away from something?

    I dont believe there is anything missing from before that point, they were just running to get back to the ship but the missing fight scene is when the ship takes off and Qui-Gon jumps up to the platform, Darth Maul is then ment to jump up after him, have a few lightsaber strikes and then Qui-Gon kicks Maul off, that is why you then see Darth Maul getting up as the ship flies off.

    It makes me laugh when people make comments like this, implying that Lucas is all about the money. While I agree that the cash is obviously important, surely if that was all he was interested in he would have:

    a) Released the Original trilogy DVD's much sooner
    and
    b) Would release the original trilogy in it's original form, without Greedo shooting and all the CGI enhancements. There have been so many people calling for this that it would surely make him loads?

    If you have the DVD, look at the deleted scenes on disc 2. There is a scene where Qui Gon & Anakin are being tracked by a Probe droid on tattoine. Qui Gon cuts it in half with his Lightsabre, then says something to Anakin and they both start running out of Mos Espa towards the ship.

    That to me would have been good to leave in as it shows why they are running urgently towards the ship!
