If episode I and II weren’t bad enough, Lucas added Hayden Christensen into the final scenes of “Return of the Jedi” on DVD. Talk about revisionist history.&
I’m sorry but I grew up on Star Wars and it is profoundly disturbing to see an actor from the Episode I, II, and III digitally inserted into the Trilogy. What was wrong with the older guy in the original? He should file a lawsuit against Lucas for wrongful editing! It is unfortunate to say, but I think Lucas is milking the cow for all its worth.
I want to find a vintage copy of the Trilogy transferred from Laserdisc (circa 1988) onto DVD. It is unfortunate that you can’t find copies of the original films in good condition that do not include the revisionist “additions”.
LAST SCENE: RETURN OF THE JEDI – DVD Sept 2004
Setting: Forest Moon of Endor
The Death Star 2 has just exploded. Celebrations are occurring across the galaxy. In the Ewok Village, fires are burning as the celebration continues. Luke hugs Leia and Han Solo and turns toward the woods. Appearing before him are Obi Wan Kenobi (Sir Alec Guinnes), Master Yoda (Frank Oz) and Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen).
It is a sad day in a galaxy far, far away.
