    I disagree, I think it was good to have a modern take on the original story
    I for one didn't really like the kitsch 70's space drama's, most tended to resemble something a collaboration between Elton John and Liberace would produce.
    I prefer the edgier, grittier re imagining.
    Besides...you are just jealous it was better than Firefly!! :p
    If he really wanted to please fans he should have just added a few more minutes of Leia in her skimpy outfit at Jabba's....maybe perfoming a nice little dance number!! ;) :p

    Too easy to get a bite!! :p
    Unfortunately a lot of good series never got through the first series. I am still angry about "Space above and Beyond".

    And he doesn't feel like he's destroying it. He feels like he's improving it, yet also preserving it, after all the original threatrical version still exists, was brought out on DVD and such. So how is he destroying it? I think he's referring especially to other artists, because in the end he has the right to change his own art, he made it, that's his vision. But others do no have the right to change it, in other words destroy it. And that is the art what needs to be protected.

    Lol nice username & avatar. I like the thought of CGI Yoda on Dagobah, not as a replacement but an alternate. I don't like that little line that was added in Return of the Jedi, but I don't see why it's that big of a deal. If you don't like it don't buy it.

    Lol yeah the nicknames nicely add up if you read mine and then yours. lol. A CGI Yoda... Hmm, I'm very sceptical about that. I don't think Lucas would go that far really. And the same counts for changing Anakin in the suit at the ending of ROTJ to an older Hayden as was falsely rumoured. I even saw a picture. Looked quite convincing lol. There's been talk of other changes that didn't go through, like Boba Fett crawling out of the Sarlacc Pitt and such. I would like to have seem more changes in the Mustafar fight as originally there was more dialogue.

    I read somewhere that Yoda would be CG in the Blu Ray release.

    Yes but only in The Phantom Menace, not in the classic trilogy. Sorry I thought you were referring to that.
