  1. While this is an issue I have with another one Lucas’ edits I think it is still relevant. Changing the original actor, I think it was Sebastian Shaw, who played Anakin’s ghost to Hayden Christensen at the end. Luke has never seen Anakin as young man, he’s gonna be like “who the f is that guy?”.Report

    Didn’t he add in Jar Jar to the old films in the last round of edits? At least in the background?

    And I liked the Ewoks, but I saw these first when I was really young, so I was supposed to like the Ewoks.

    It’s still way better than the first one. Luke is so goddamn annoying in the first one it’s almost unbearable.Report

    “7. The thing that eats Bobba Fett. What the hell does it eat normally? It’s in the middle of fishing nowhere.”

    Well, as C3PO said, it does digest slowly — at least 1,000 years in the case of Han, Luke and Chewie.Report

  4. The biggest problem I have had since the prequels came out is thinking back to Star Wars: New Hope. Shouldn’t Obi-Wan have been like, “C-3PO, R2-D2 ! Longtime no see! Remember the Clone Wars? That was some crazy times!” Instead he acted as though he had no recollection of them.

    And also, wouldn’t R2-D2 have been in the know about Darth being Luke’s father? Seems like he might have discussed that with Luke during those long hyperspace trips.Report

  5. My main problem with ROTJ was the fact that it recycled so many plot points from “A New Hope.”

    Indeed, three of the six movies have basically the same ending.Report
