I really liked it too. Great to get some cool Order 66 content and a ton of lightsaber time. And WOW that sequence on Mustafar was incredible.
Yes, that was awesome and surprising.

Was that Mustafar? I guess that makes sense, but it wasn't explicitly called that in the game. It had different name.


You're right. They called it Nur in the game.

More for Empire's 40th





Han's face during his first convo with Lando is hilarious in this one.

I was scanning through these on Youtube and I'm pretty sure the guy who is doing the voice over in some of them is Prince Zuko from Avatar

Hilarious moment in the final Mandalorian Gallery episode.

Favreau: "Did you see his gun? That was an homage. That's canon, right?"

Lucas: *Stone-faced* "Not really."

Poor Favreau.

Can you imagine being bussed somewhere and suddenly you're on a Star Wars set, filming for it no less?

Pretty awesome they introduced each one individually.

Made good progress on Clone Wars last night. About to close out season 4.

Continually amazed at how horrifically inaccurate laser guns are. Even a trained sniper can't hit a standing target about 100 yards away with one. Give me lead instead.

Let's see what AMC has in store.

Have never seen an OT movie in theaters.

They did this back when I was around 10-12 years old and IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!

I still remember the marketing that I saw for it when I was in the theatre.....course the whole reason was for the "new edition" with all of Lucas' "improvements"

May have to do this if they release in theaters.

My earliest human memory is being at the drive-in in 1977 and watching Star Wars. I recall standing in the front seat of my dads car and seeing flashes of gold (C-3PO). I do not recall ESB theater memories and then vividly recall ROTJ.

All of my friends were at Showbiz Pizza Place getting some gaming in ahead of the launch. We left there to go see at Cargill 6 in Longview. Literally lines down both sides of the building for ROTJ. It was an awesome day.

And that theater is an absolute sh^thole!

I actually saw ESB at Post Oak Mall when it came out. My first movie.

It seems that everything that Lucas did post Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade gets, at best, a snarky response.

So in thinking about the special editions, some of the additions were improvements over the original versions of the OT. I say that as having seen the originals in the theater when they came out, as a fan who was (often derisively) called Mr. Star Wars in 6th grade, and who had an entire wall in his room covered with original release Topps Star Wars trading cards.

Improvements that I see in the SE:

Star Wars
  • Most of the additional activity going on in Mos Eisley. For a bustling space port, the original vision was rather non-bustling.
  • The addition of more stormtroopers and a shuttle taking off when the stormtroopers track down the jettisoned escape pod, "Someone was in the pod" sequence
  • Han Solo chasing a couple of stormtroopers down a hall in the DS, coming around the corner to find an entire detachment of troops waiting for him. The original, the hall was a dead-end.
  • The Millennium Falcon's departure from Mos Eisley was more impressive in the POV above the launch bay and we see the Falcon actually lift out rather than the original's POV from the street outside the launch bay and we see a more distant shot of the Falcon blasting away
  • There was a lot more activity in the DS attack sequence. They weaved in new shots of X-Wings, etc with the original miniature shots to perfection.

The Empire Strikes Back
  • The Millennium Falcon's approach into Cloud City, accompanied by the cloud cars, was a new tracking shot until the Falcon reached the landing pad
  • Removing entire wall panels in the halls of Cloud City and replacing those walls with windows. That makes sense from an architectural sense - why would you not want to see all those sunsets among the clouds?

Return of the Jedi
  • Added tentacles to the Sarlacc

The Bad and Ugly of the SE:

Star Wars
  • Han shot first
  • The addition of Jabba the Hutt didn't work with the original footage that Lucas shot with a big fat guy as Jabba, and then replaced fat guy with the slug he introduced in Jedi. I did like seeing Boba Fett in this sequence, but overall, the entire thing was a bunch of crap
  • Didn't need the skiff speeding into Mos Eisley and nearly hitting that giraffe-critter, and a damned Jawa fell off

The Empire Strikes Back (edited)
  • Removing "bring my shuttle" as Vader is leaving Cloud City
  • The original version of the SE had Luke screaming as he fell down the shaft after losing his hand and hearing the big revelation from DV

Return of the Jedi
  • When we first see Jabba's sail barge, there is a terribly animated figure walking across the barge's deck, and we also see a herd of Banthas in the distance that I didn't think was very well done

So I almost could have written that post.

My earliest memory is also seeing ANH in a drive in, though my only specific memory from that is not being allowed to watch Obi Wan slice up the guy in the cantina

The Empire Strikes Back - nothing

The explosions in ANH were also improved, both Death Star and Aldreraan.

The tentacles might have been an improvement for the sarlacc pit, but the thing that pops up to eat people was awful.

C-3PO memories have shaped my entire life. I'm not sure if I should be concerned about that or not.
