Star Wars: The Changes

Ever wonder what exactly was changes with each re-release of the original Star Wars trilogy? Chris Gould compares the theatrical releases to the VHS, DVD and Blu-Ray Special Editions. Sure, some annoying changes were made—like Han shooting first—but other edits dramatically improve the quality of the film.

(A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, the prequels.)

This may be a bit controversial among Star Wars fans, but I much prefer the new ending of Return of the Jedi (sans Hayden Christensen, of course) with its smoother editing and beautiful orchestral music to the silly “Yub Nub” Ewok chant.
