Drew Stewart made a “frame by frame” look at each film’s changes.
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Star Wars: Despecialized Edition attempted to undo those and still have an HD version of the movies. You can download them here.
Personally, I was never happy with the depecialized edition. I understand the reasoning behind it, but I didn’t think the final result was that good.
Also, George Lucas wanted to call Yoda “Buffy”. What kind of idiot thinks that would have been a good name for a Jedi master? Here are other bizarre things from Star Wars.
Simon Pegg lists the movies in the same order I would, for pretty much the same reasons I would.
Do you love pretending you are in space on your favorite star ship? Well, you have come to the right place. This is the ambient space sounds playlist where you can find all of the best long ambient space sounds in one place.
Cédric Delsaux has created some really interesting photographs, mixing modern places on Earth with Star Wars. The picture below is my favorite, but his work is quite stunning and worth checking out.
Episodes I and II would have been so much better with these changes.
I look forward to the release of Episode III.
