I don't understand why celebrations were added on Coruscant when it is still under Imperial control. --Darth Mantus 18:46, 25 May 2005 (UTC)
- Revolts against the Empire could safely start when they learned of the death of Emperor and Vader, via the Holonet. -- Riffsyphon1024 18:58, 25 May 2005 (UTC)
Did they really film a scene for ROTS with a young Han Solo? And I'm not sure, but wasn't there a deleted scene from AOTC with Ki-Adi-Mundi boarding a Trade Federation ship in orbit?Kuralyov 16:16, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)
- I don't think there was a scene with Han in ROTS...but the scene with Ki-Adi-Mundi i think i read on the star wars website that it was a demo shot just for the trailer... --22:22, 22 Jul 2005 (UTC)
The Han Solo on Kashyyyk scene never was real. This was a rumor posted on SuperShadow.com, and yes he made that scene up. --Dylankidwell
- The young Han is discribed in the Art of ROTS, with sketches and everything. It was in like the early early drafts. Duke Starhopper 20:14, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
For the Deleted Scenes from the RotS DVD, I thought the following was going to be added into the main part of the movie.
1. Several 'gags' in the Trade Federation Cruiser, involving the Jedi fighting battle droids in a flooded generator room and more scenes with the elevator and the ship's fluctuating gravity.
2. One of the deaths of Shaak Ti (the one in the ship).
3. The death of Aayla Secura extended with dialogue between Aayla and Bly.
4. Yoda communicating with the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn, discussing the technique of immortal life.
5. Yoda arrives on Dagobah in the final montage.
and I know it's a long shot but does anyone know if the very funny M&M "Dark Side M-Pire" adds will be included they did tell you the release date of the movie and was a very cute way of doing it?
I have no idea why they didn't put in the Yoda arriving on Dagobah scene.It was such an important scene. Trueblue9999 13:00, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
I just watched the DVD Edit
I watched the Episode 3 DVD and bonus disk, and I just deleted the scenes mentioned in the article that weren't in either the movie or bonus disk. 188.8.131.52 00:39, 2 Nov 2005 (UTC) Oops Didn't read the whole article... Duh 184.108.40.206
Correcting English Edit
About from Revenge of Sith and below, there are a bunch of sentences that don't make sense and words that are left half finish and I can't figure out what they are supposed to say so could who ever wrote those please correct them?
Anakin in VI Edit
"In the final scene where the spirits of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda appear to Luke, the head of Sebastian Shaw (as Anakin) has been replaced with the head of Hayden Christensen (the body remains Shaw's)."
this is untrue. Hayden is completley there, they dressed him in the robes and everything while they were filming Episode III and just added him into VI. I have not changed the Article yet. I don't know how I should word it. GMo 05:26, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
How about this:
"In the final scene where the spirits of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda appear to Luke, Sebastian Shaw (as Anakin) has been replaced by Hayden Christensen. This was done by using test footage from Revenge of the Sith in which Hayden Christensen was dressed up in Jedi robes." Trueblue9999 22:31, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
alright. That looks good, It was done deliberatly by Lucas though. He knew it would be put in the ROTJ dvd GMo 20:41, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
- It's Sebastian Shaw's body still. You can tell by comparing it with the older versions of RoTJ. -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:43, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
You're right. On the "what has changed" page on starwars.com, it states only Anakin's head was replaced. I'll change it back. Trueblue9999 21:01, 5 October 2006 (UTC)
Executor crashing into Death Star II?Edit
Was that part of the original versions? I watched a rental VHS from the '80's some years ago, and I don't remember it including that scene. In the 1997 re-release, it's there. Was it added for that version, or is my memory acting up? Evir Daal 11:36, 24 November 2006 (UTC)
- Yup, it was in the original 1983 version and all subsequent versions - \\Captain Kwenn// — Ahoy! 15:57, 31 December 2006 (UTC)
Unaltered DVD's Edit
first off, let me just say i'm not sure if this should be put in this section; but i'm not sure where i should post it.
does anyone know where i can get DVD versions of the un-altered theatrical releases, or a dvd version of the '97 release?
ANH 2004 DVD - Stormtroopers Edit
In the article it says:
The lead stormtrooper now also says "See to him", in reference to the unfortunately tall trooper.
Firstly, the line 'see to him' wasn't added for the 2004 DVD. I don't know if it was always there but it was definitely in the 1997 Special Edition. Secondly, I don't think he's talking about the trooper that bangs his head. That doesn't make sense considering there's nothing wrong with the trooper. Surely he's talking about one of the men Han and Chewie took out when entering the control room.
Captain Yossarian 15:12, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
- Doesn't the trooper say "Take Over." ? GMo 00:33, 12 April 2007 (UTC)
Cancelled changes? Edit
Hey, it's me. Well, I was just wondering about a suggestion. You see, I was on Google searching for changes cut out of the DVD editions and one of the websites says that there were some rumored changes that were told before and they never got on the DVD. I'm not asking why, but I was wondering; could we add a part on the page that talks about Cancelled changes? If so, I have already made a prototype for the part:
Many changes were suggested for the DVD re-release of the Classic Trilogy. But, probably due to budget cuts or unnecessary ideas, the ideas listed below were cut out of the DVD editions. However, some websites say the deleted changes were rumored changes, making a possibility that some may be fanon.
Changes in all the episodesEdit
- All the matte paintings, matte painting backgrounds and set backgrounds would have been replaced with a digital CGI version of the old background which was going to be at the same style and look as the matte backgrounds used in the prequels. Some matte painting shots in the episodes were even going to be replaced with new CGI shots of the locations.
- The lightsaber effects would have been redone to the style used in the prequel trilogy. Plus, the frame jumps of lightsabers being turned on would have been removed. Plus, the shadows that the lightsabers made on the floor were going to be erased. Lightsaber reflections and glows were also going to be added.
- The blaster bolts were also going to be redone to match the ones seen in the prequels.
- All the space shots would have been replaced by new CGI shots with the same style and of camera turnings from the prequels. For example, the scene of the Falcon being chased by the two Star Destroyers was going to be modified; the Falcon was going to do spinning moves, avoiding the Star Destroyers' fire, the Death Star battle was going to be much more epic with more Tie Fighters and more Rebels being blown, the asteroid chase scene was going to redone to be similar to the asteroid battle in Attack of the Clones, and the space battle over Endor was originally going to be redone to be similar to the space battle scene in Revenge of the Sith.
- Temuera Morrison's voice was also going to be recorded for use with some of the stormtrooper voices.
- The “Imperial March” was going to bee added to Darth Vader's first appearance on Tantive IV.
- During the scene in which Obi-Wan is talking to Luke about his father, Anakin's Theme music plays in the background. And then it turns into the “Imperial March” when he talks about Vader.
- There was going to be a new scene which has been shot during the filming of Episode III in which the Emperor dissolves the Galactic Senate.
- In the Cantina, most of the alien masks would have been replaced with CGI facemasks that would realistic eyes, blink, and move their mouths. The Defel shot was going to be added back in along with the Shistavanen. Some aliens from the prequels were going to be added in as well.
- Ponda Baba’s bleeding arm on the floor in the Cantina scene would have been replaced with a twitching, non-bleeding arm because it was believed that lightsabers cauterize wounds.
- The original scene between Han and Greedo would have been added back in.
- During the Jabba the Hutt bargain segment Han's scene of stepping on Jabba’s tale was going to be edited out.
- In place of R2 wobbling down the stairs to the Falcon's hangar, a CGI R2 was going to be added in; navigating the stairs like he does in Attack of the Clones.
- When the Death Star destroys Alderaan there was going to be a new scene of Yoda's reaction to the disturbance in the Force that is created by all those deaths. This then cuts to Obi-Wan reacting to it as well.
- The Dianoga was going to get a CG makeover and was going to see more of its features.
- The Death Star's paneling and computers were going to be altered to look similar to those it has in the prequels.
- More stormtroopers were going to be added into some of the Death Star interior shots.
- Obi-Wan and Darth Vader’s duel was going to be spruced up. It was going to be much more epic and there was going to be much more movement. A modified version of the Duel of the Fates music was going to be considered for the scene as well.
- The Death Star plans that were taken from R2 were going to be updated. The scene in which the Rebels are reviewing the Death Star plans they were going to look similar to the plans used in Attack of the Clones.
- There was going to be a new scene which was shot during the production of Revenge of the Sith in which Darth Vader arrives on Coruscant and lands his shuttle in the same building where Count Dooku lands at the end of Attack of the Clones. Except the building was going to be all fixed up and was going to be now Imperial palace. In the scene he was going to meet with Palpatine in order to ask for forgiveness for his failure at the battle. Plus inform him of a new potential who is strong in the Force during the battle.
- Chewbacca was originally going to get a medal in the ceremony scene.
- The taun-tauns were originally going to be CGI.
- The battle of Hoth was going to be much more epic; in order to match the style of the prequel trilogy; along with the Imperial transports landing and releasing both AT-AT walkers, AT-ST walkers, and Juggernauts used in Revenge of the Sith. The AT-ATs were going to be sped up a bit; plus there was going to be a ground battle between the Rebel soldiers and stormtroopers featuring new ships and vehicles.
- The space slug was going to be CGI. Plus new CGI shots of the mynocks were going to be inserted.
- Yoda was going to be rendered and animated in CGI, looking more like the Yoda used in the prequel trilogy. Also, two deleted scenes featuring Yoda instructing Luke were going to be added back in and restored.
- Luke's fall from Cloud City was going to be redone against green screen using a stuntman.
- Some parts of Jabba the Hutt were going to be a combination of the puppet with CGI.
- Some Rancor shots were going to be replaced by CGI.
- Yoda was going to be CGI again. Plus, Yoda was going to disappear leaving his clothes behind like Obi-Wan.
- Admiral Ackbar's head was going to be replaced by a CGI version almost resembling and having the same motion features as the Mon Calamari mask used in Revenge of the Sith.
- Some of the Ewoks were going to be mostly CGI.
- The original plan was to insert the love theme “Across the Stars” when Luke is talking with Leia about their mother.
- Thousands of more Ewoks were going to be added in the Battle of Endor scene.
- The black blotches around Palpatine's face were originally going to be completely gone; replaced by a CGI makeover.
- Anakin's death scene was originally going to start with a sad rendition of the “Imperial March” and slowly evolve into “Anakin's Theme”.
- Some extra shots of Sebastion Shaw, who played Anakin, being unmasked were going to be added back in with much more dialogue. He apologizes for the destruction he caused and the Jedi who he killed, he thanks his son for turning him back to the light; he also tells his son to rebuild the Jedi Order, and that he loves him and his sister. Just before he dies he was going to say "It is finished...”
- Kashyyyk was originally going to have an appearance in the celebration sequence, Watto was originally going to have a brief cameo sitting in a hover platform cheering on Tatooine, plus during these scenes "Across the Stars" was originally going to play transitioning to the victory celebration music at the Ewok tree village.
- Anakin's spirit was originally going to be companied by the spirit of Padme on his side.
What do you think?-Endor chicken
Why not?-Endor chicken
- Where should I start? It's a huge, unsourced, unverifiable, and unnecessary trivia list. I just see the entire thing becoming a big [source?] tag. JorrelFraajic 23:58, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
I've been wondering, in the sections of the article where it talks about the 2007 3-D release, I don't know what should be done. Since this is outdated, I'm not sure if this should be deleted or just replaced which other info about the 3-D release (a subject I wouldn't know much about). Any decisive help would be appreciated.StarWarsDude2007 03:52, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Over on Wikipedia Edit
Under the 2006 DVD release, this line was added:
A box set of the 2006 DVDs with new artwork was released on November 4, 2008.
with a citation for http://www.starwars.com/movies/saga/20080826news.html Please add this. --220.127.116.11 06:04, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
There is a specific name for the "shockwave" effect of these explosions, which I've seen on Wookiee before and am trying to find now. Also, they link to one of Harrsk's ISDs, which is definitely wrong context. Thanks to whoever fixes this. 18.104.22.168 19:58, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure this is called the "Praxis effect," named for the shockwave in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country that formed after a Klingon moon called Praxis exploded. I'm not a hundred percent sure, but mostly sure.
Why aren't there separate articlesEdit
A Guide to the Star Wars Universe has separate articles for each of its 3 editions and the Core Rulebook of the RPG has a separate article for its Revised Edition, so why don't the Special Editions of the movies have separate articles? Does Wookieepedia have a policy about this? NetSpiker 10:14, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
blast scar in Episode IV Edit
The article says this as one of the changes to the 1997 special edition of A New Hope:
"A blast scar indicating Red Leader's missed shot has been added to shots of the exhaust port, visible when Luke fires his."
That blast scar has been there since the original theatrical release, but a lot of people think it's new for the special edition because their memory of the scene is based on the pan and scan VHS release, which cuts off the edges of the frame and makes the scar invisible. I'm 90% positive of this, but since I don't have any copies of the original versions in widescreen, I'll leave it to someone else to double-check.
That's 100% correct, having compared the BluRay with the 1995 VHS, you can see the blast scar in both versions. Colour grading differences make them appear slightly different but they are the same, and it is also visible in the pan and scan version.
I'm also 99% certain that there isn't any 'extra laser fire' in the scene after Han runs into the hangar of stormtroopers after comparing the 2006 (read: 1993 laserdisc master) bonus theatrical DVD with the BluRay, but cannot confirm the '97 and '04 versions.
--CapableMetal 10:51, May 17, 2012 (UTC)
One error and one omission Edit
This page contains:
- More debris have been digitally added to the scene at the destroyed Jawa sandcrawler.
This isn't true!
I can also suggest one omission - when the skiff that Han's hanging from gets hit and tips forward, it also rocks sideways since the Special Edition.
Can someone with the ability to edit the page fix/add?
Hoth intercom voice change Edit
At some point, either the Special Edition or the 2004 DVD release, the voice of the intercom in Echo Base was changed. The original voicer was Mark Hamill; the lines were: "The first transport is away!" and "Imperial troops have entered the base!". This isn't reflected in the current list. Biohappy 23:13, August 13, 2011 (UTC)
Edited Line in Episode III Edit
I don't know if anyone has access to the original theatrical release of Episode III, but I distinctly recall Padme saying "So this is how DEMOCRACY dies... with thunderous applause." Additionally, I remember her looking straight ahead while saying it. In the DVD release however, she uses the term LIBERTY instead of DEMOCRACY, and her head is turned looking back. Just thought someone might want to look this one over and add it to the list of changes if need-be.
Episode II Blu-ray ChangeEdit
I might be wrong, but when I was watching Ep. 2 on blu-ray for the first time, I heard something new. While Anakin and Padme are on Naboo, Anakin has a nightmare sequence. The addition is Shmi now yelling Anakin's name, or at least I feel like that was new as I don't recall that on all my other viewings of the episode. I don't have my dvds with me otherwise I'd check it out now. Anyone else know? --BrushYourTeeth 22:24, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
Phantom Menace 3D Edit
Ep. 3 Blu Rya Edit
I couldn't edit but the Blu-Ray Episode 3 has a change:
- There is now moss on the roof that Yoda is situated under on Kashyyyk. It is shown near the end of the Order 66 scene.
22.214.171.124 08:56, February 19, 2012 (UTC)
Anakin in RotJ (again) Edit
This has been discussed here before, and looks like it has been changed several times. I notice the article says "In the final scene where the spirits of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda appear to Luke, the Sebastian Shaw (as Anakin) has been replaced by Hayden Christensen. Hayden's entire body replaces Shaw's, not just his head as many people believe (by comparing shots of the two actors, you can see that their belts, robes and cloaks are in different positions)."
This isn't true. A side by side comparison of the robes and belt in the pre-2004 and post-2004 versions shows that they are identical and that it is actually just Hayden Christensen's head super-imposed over Sebastian Shaw's body. The colour grading may differ slightly between versions and the picture resolutions differ, but all creases and folds in the robes and the position and style of the belts are identical. As I'm lacking photos, I found this YouTube video that someone made which confirms it . Can we get this changed back please? --CapableMetal 19:14, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
- This is of course absolutely true. I even wonder why this erroneous statement is still in the article...--LelalMekha 19:48, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
"Definitive" edition Edit
This article mentions that George Lucas will most likely one day rerelease the saga on the next generation of home video, making final adjustments. However, now that he has sold Star Wars and most of his other assets to Disney, does this still hold true? I did not think it was legal for Lucas to make any further changes to Star Wars. 126.96.36.199 18:02, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
