Last week, we told you that George Lucas was going back and replacing the puppet Yoda with a digital Yoda for The Phantom Menace.
That was one of several tweaks Lucas promised fans on the upcoming Blu-Ray release for Star Wars. More news of the tweaks has come out and it appears that Lucas is attempting to close some plot holes raised between one trilogy and the next.
Among those is inserting two new lines of dialogue into the waning moments of Return of the Jedi.
In the climactic scene, Vader stands impotent to the Emperor’s crackling lightning storm assault of his son Luke, The internal conflict seethes within him until, in a SILENT moment of brute strength and paternal love, he hoists Emperor Palpatine over his head and chucks him into the abyss. In the new version, Vader will shout “No!” twice.
Lucas is also altering Ben Kenobi’s Krayt dragon call in A New Hope.
Of course, these edits won’t stop fans from buying the discs. But at least we’ll have something to complain about….
