Seriously George Lucas, what are you doing?? I’ll admit, I’m not one of those people who has opposed any change at all he’s made to the Original Trilogy over the years; some improved things. Some were cool. Some certainly weren’t though, and I’m thinking this one definitely fits into that latter category. Mostly I just don’t understand why he’s still making changes, especially the little things that quite frankly seem like a waste of time. (Blinking Ewoks, I’m looking at you here. Just… why?)
That said, I don’t have a blu-ray player or any intention of buying the blu-ray discs, so I guess I ought to just pretend this never happened.
