It seems as though George Lucas has the film equivalent of an addiction to plastic surgery, as he and Lucasfilm have made more changes to the Star Wars films for their upcoming Blu-ray release on September 16. The following list of changes has been confirmed by Lucasfilm.
In Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, the puppet Yoda has been replaced with CGI.
In Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, Ben Kenobi’s Krayt Dragon call has been replaced with new audio.
Also in A New Hope, R2-D2 now hides behind rocks that disappear as soon as the Jawas zap him. (image courtesy of TheForce.net)
The remaining changes all occur in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.
A Dug has been added to Jabba’s Palace.
Jabba’s door has been enhanced to look much larger.
The Ewoks now have eyes that blink.
And the worst of all the changes is that Darth Vader now yells “No!…Noooo!” as Luke is being electrocuted by the Emperor.
