If you take the view that these remastering cock ups don't matter, then you must surely also take the view that you don't mind Lucas constantly meddling and changing the films.

You can't have it both ways.

I take it you all didn't mind the lowry remastering cock ups that appeared on the Ultimate Edition Bond films either.

Jesus, I can't believe what I'm reading here.

i imagine people can see the difference between slight minor colouring issues that most had not even noticed and adding in new scenes.

and its says plenty that you had to explain the differences.

Fundamentaly it doesnt matter, and if it does to you, no worries but i think you are going to be disappointed when they are released on blu

Remastering mistakes like those that appeared on the Ultimate Edition Bond films and the 2004 OT Star Wars DVDs are not acceptable. I'm utterly baffled that anybody would think it didn't matter.

The one that really bugs me, and is pretty obvious, is that after Luke attempts to buy R5-D4 (the red & white droid) from the Jawas, which then blows up, the next shot is of R2 in the droid line-up, trying to get noticed and selected, with R5-D4 alogside him, even though at that time he was well out of the way. Very annoying and very easily fixed without any upset.

The only thing it ''says plenty'' of is that you obviously aren't familiar enough with the films to have noticed. The blue tint over the whole of ANH along with Vaders pink lightsaber were well reported lowry grading errors at the time the DVDs came out.

''Fundamentally'' it does matter whether you or I care about it or not.

What mattered more to me, were the cock ups on the Bond DVDs, which seemed to have been rectified for the Blu-rays, thus far.

The fact is that no amount of fixing minor errors will make up for the scenes that Lucas added or swapped to the great detriment of the original films.

The colour issues you're talking about are as nothing compared to the awesome badness of that scene with Solo and Jabba in Star Wars, or the new Vader Emperor dialogue and that AWFUL cut to Vader saying "Alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival." that destroys one of Williams' best musical cues in Empire, or indeed the changing of the song in Jabba's palace in Jedi.

(Though let's be honest, there's not a lot you could really do to rescue Jedi from being just a bit rubbish compared to the other two, no matter what your 'remastering' budget was.)

Lucas Annouces Star Wars Blu-ray
We're there as Lucas talks about the upcoming release of all six films and debuts a very cool deleted scene.
August 14, 2010
by IGN Staff

The Star Wars Blu-ray release is now as official as it can be, as none other than George Lucas announced the films were coming to the format. "I wish I could say it's coming out this year, but it's coming out next year," Lucas said to the packed audience at the "Main Event" at Star Wars Celebration V today, which was moderated by Jon Stewart.

Speaking about what will be included, Lucas said, "They'll be different kinds of additional material," adding, "I think you've seen enough behind the scenes [material] for a lifetime. There's some really good material that will be included in there, [including] more deleted scenes that you haven't seen yet." Lucas said these newly released scenes would be kept separate from the film itself.

In a surprise appearance, Mark Hamill then joined Lucas and Stewart on stage, to introduce one of the new deleted scenes, which he said was his "original entrance" in Return of the Jedi. Hamill noted the scene was short, but that it was for the UPFs in the audience – the "ultra passionate fans."

We were then shown the scene, which would have taken place after Darth Vader arrives on the second Death Star at the beginning of Return of the Jedi. We see Vader walking down a corridor and into an elevator on the Death Star. We then cut to Vader inside his medication chamber, a la Empire Strikes Back. As Vader sits there, the camera moves into a close-up and we hear him reaching out with the Force. "Luke. Luke. Join me in the dark side of the Force. My son. It is the only way."

As Vader continues to repeat Luke's name, we cut to a tight close-up of Luke, insinuating he is hearing his father's voice. it's a very ominous shot of Luke, who is wearing his cloak and hood, with the shadows from the hood blocking out his eyes completely - in line with how Darth Sideous' face is mostly hidden. As Vader's voice fades away, the camera pans down to Luke's hands, and we see that he is using a tool to complete work on his new lightsaber. Satisfied, he puts the tool down and holds the lightsaber hilt up, igniting it – in what would have been the first reveal of the green blade.

We cut to a shot from the side and see Luke is sitting inside a cave on Tatooine, with C-3P0 standing outside, waiting for him – no doubt to receive his orders to head to Jabba the Hutt.

That was it for the scene, but the crowd erupted in cheers at what was indeed a very cool new moment, from films we are all quite familiar with.

The panel ended with one more surprise guest – Carrie Fisher. Alas, there were no other deleted scenes shown to us today, but Fisher cracked to Lucas, "Did you put the nude scenes back in?" She then turned to the audience and deadpanned, "There was a huge me and Jabba porn scene. That's what got me into drugs."

No further details were given on the Blu-rays as yet, which leave plenty to speculate about. It's safe to say from the Return of the Jedi scene being shown that this release will include all of the original trilogy, but while it seems likely the answer is yes, there was nothing definitive stated about the prequels being released simultaneously. And no, we didn't get any info on whether the original, pre-Special Edition versions of the films will be part of this set as well.

Suffice to say though, there will be more news to come in the months ahead, so keep checking IGN for more on the Star Wars Blu-ray release!

Update: About five minutes after I published this story, I was handed Lucasfilm's official press release for the Blu-rays. It confirms that all six movies are being released on Blu-ray and that the set is coming out Fall 2011 - so don't line up just yet! We're also told it will include, "documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives."

I knew they'd finally wheel out the deleted scenes for the OT. Should be a cracking set.

No unaltered, original trilogy? No purchase. I'll wait for a BluRay fan edit and download that instead. It'll probably be better than anything Lucasfilm will put out.

And yet again the excuse for not including the original originals is because it's "too expensive"* to do. Yeah right, Georgie. You're just pee'd that the ex-wife would get a pay day if you did, you dumb sack of back fat.

Mr. Lucas said the versions of the first three “Star Wars” films – “Star Wars,” “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” – included in the Blu-ray boxed set will be the special-edition releases that were shown theatrically in 1997 and digitally restored for a 2004 standard-definition DVD boxed set.
That's me out. **** you, Lucas!
