Cool Ewan Mcgregor swearing on TPM documentary.......

A lot has been made of the sound edits made to some of Rick Mcallum's colourful outbursts on the 'Beginning' doc on the Episode 1 disc, but has anyone else noticed Mcgregor very clearly saying "'Do you want to do Star Wars', they said? I said too ******* right!" about 27 minutes into the documentary? That one obviously slipped right through the Lucasfilm censors! Wonder if the BBFC will spot that one and cut it out / slap the R2 disc with a 12 certificate?

yeah, i noticed this too. it stuck out particularly because by that stage they had already bleeped mccallum twice. it's so random of lucasfilm to leave this in. must be a mistake, right? that said, i do think it is the most justified use of swearing in the whole documentary - purely based on its context!

Maybe Mcgregor's thick Scottish burr left the people who edited the documentary unsure as to what he actually said, but to British ears it's plainly obvious. This being intended as a family release, one wonders what Lucasfilm/Fox will do if people start protesting in the U.S. - pull the disc from the shelves?

I can absolutely believe this - remember the Trainspotting re-dub for American audiences - i couldn't believe it!

The U.K version has had the offending words dubbed out. ( The sound goes for a second. )

There was no way Fox were going to give up it's U cert on it's biggest ever release.

Quite why they thought it was O.K. to have cussing on an extra on a kids film is a little puzzling.

I'm sorry, but this is just priceless. I would seriously laugh myself to death if this made it out on the R2 version. I mean, in the US they don't need to rate extras, so I don't see why it matters that much. How many young children do you know that actually listen to the commentaries?

Amazing that got through. Could it get taken of the shelves when word gets out?

I'd say some parents won't be too pleased!?!

Am I the only person to think kids today could not give a rat's arse about Star Wars? I think kids would rather watch movies like Toy Story and Pokemon than The Phantom Menace!

Absolutely, hell even some kids have the good sense to not touch TPM with a 10 foot bargepole!

Are you kidding?

Robots, Spaceships, Laser guns, Jar-Jar Binks (you and I may wanna throw him to the Rancor but my lad loves that dude!) , and even though Anakin is gonna be a bad m.f, my lad loves the thought of a kid 'driving' spaceships and pod racers. :cool:


:confused:

I don't think most kids will go ratting to their parents about a swear-word in the behind the scenes. And assuming they do watch the Making Of feature, I think they'd probably watch it on their own. I may be wrong, but I think most families don't gather round the TV for a round of browsing the DVD extras.

So. Call me 'Thick-As-A-Whale-Omlette' HighlanderTM, but the R2 does NOT have the offending language on it? This concerns me. Hotshots 1+2 were withdrawn because of the F word being featured in the subtitles. There would be something ironic about a film that promotes good over evil having the word 'FasteriskAsteriskK' openly said in a documentary...

Note: Irony is NOT to do with metal. This is important.

Yeah, I don't think families care about the DVD extras. They just want to get it from HMV or Asda as cheap as they can. They don't give a damn about director's commentaries, storyboards, original aspect ratio, making of documentary, documentaries with special effects designers, music tracks...

They just want the movie. They wouldn't care if the film was upside down. They'd do handstands!

"Hey, what was that he said?"
"Ah, nothin', somethin' about FOXES I think...hell this is good..."

So is this swearing pesent and correct on the R4 version, does anyone know?

Or are the Australians as worried about corrupting their children as we are in the UK?!

Finally got my R1 copy of this yesterday and watched the documentary last night. First off, the program is really good. A truly entertaining film on the making of films. Second, because they do such a bad job of editing McCallum's swearing (all half a dozen or so times of it, not twice), it's hard to tell if Ewan was edited too. both can be quite clearly saying the 'F' word at various intervals.
