This is an interesting discussion from IGN that I have actually intended to post for over a year. It came out around the time of the digital release of the six film set, and it’s a discussion about 7 positive changes made by Lucas during all his tinkering with the films. Now, I don’t agree with all the things they say are positive. For example, cutting Jeremy Bulloch out is still a crap move, and who knows if that will hold up if Lawrence Kasdan revamps Boba Fett’s origin like is rumored? I do think adding Ian McDiarmid to Empire and the Death Star explosions are examples of great changes, and it’s nice to approach the topic from a positive point of view, rather than the general freak out rant that instantly starts when the topic of Lucas’ never ending tinkering does come up. I generally feel most of the changes are overall unnecessary or detrimental or psychotic (replacing Sebastian Stan at the end of Jedi with Hayden Christensen and the musical number in Jabba’s palace as examples). But it’s a good jumping off point for conversation and it’s a very good discussion. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
