    Possible Jar Jar Binks sighting.

    Well sort of.

    I had Return of the Jedi on as I was doing other business. At the very end, during the victory celebration, as the view pans over a city scene, it can be clearly heard "Wesa free!!.

    I have to wonder if that was in the original release or added later for the dvd.

    Kind of interesting.

    Sadly, I could not get a clear shot at him. :confused:

    Well we all know that when Lucas says he "digitally re-masters" them, he just takes a giant dump on the film and then re-releases it.

    Star Wars: the Very Special, Super Secret, Edition.

    My brother first pointed out this abomination to me and I had to hear it to believe it. Indeed, a Gungan voice (likely Binks) can be heard saying "Meesa free!" (or "Weesa free"). Lucas also decided to honor the memory of Sebastian Shaw (the visible face of Vader in ROTJ who had died about 3 weeks before the DVD release) by replacing his ghost at the end with Hayden Christiansen.

    In twenty years, watch Lucas "touch-up" the prequels by creating a love story between Palpatine and Yoda, justifying his insanity by saying "it just made sense to me...Palpatine turned to the Dark Side when Yoda rejected his advances and Palpatine plots to destroy the Jedi based on that failed affair".

    Since he already destroyed the myth surrounding the Force, I suspect Lucas will make Palpatine Anakin's father (Palpatine manipulated the midichlorians so that Anakin would be born). The scary part about all this is that he could do it.

    In the original version you only saw the ewoks celebrating, and they had a yub-yub song.

    I think Lucas has officially turned enough fans to the dark side to make it possible to assemble an army to beat him to death with plastic lightsabers. I have a plastic lightsaber.

    Didn't they add a whole town of Gungans at the ending scene? I am sure Mr. Binks was in there in all his floppy glory. They had to have added it since the SE came out in the late 90's. Bah, he should have just left it alone.

    Golly, that was what, the third revision of an already released movie?

    Give me the old VHS version any day.

    actually, they're shaped like ewoks... and gungans... they come in all varieties! Chocolate chip, oatmeal, peanut butter... you name it. The ones shaped like Jaba the Hut are raisin... And you can bite off the heads of Darth Maul, Vadar, Sidius... whoever you want! It might even pleasure you to eat Leya... jokes!

    Ah yes, I picked up on that as well. I suppose if he could have fixed the original storyline about Vader killing Anakin Skywalker he would have done that too. Alas, that is not fixable.

    I noticed it the first time I watched the remade DVDs, too, and I thought it bordered on blasphemy.

    Remember that this man is the king of sucking every last cent out of the consumer. I'm sure he will eventually issue a "purists" DVD version so people can buy more.

    I bought the 3 tape set when it first came out, something like 6 months later out comes the gold version. The man waits 400 years to do DVD's, purists version forthcoming.

    At least with LOTR they told us in advance that better version were on the way for those that chose to wait. Lucas springs it on people after they have already bought something else.

    Good way to increase sales in the short term. Good way to alienate fans as well.

    $19.99 today is better than goodwill on a future series you don't plan to produce.

    In particular when you can't drive away the true diehards no matter how bad it gets. The people who are so dedicated to SW they would go buy the newer version even tho they owned the old ones. Feel free to ignore the diehards and focus on the nonexistant casual fans. AKA, Blizzard's strategy.
