As most geeks like me, or even just every day Cinephiles for that matter, will already know, the Star Wars creator George Lucas recently caused something of an outrage when the Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray was released on the 16th September.
Why? Well, because of the changes Lucas made to some key scenes seemingly throughout the original trilogy. Yes, I know what you’re thinking (or at least should be thinking): hasn’t Lucas been making changes to these movies for, like, forever? Yes. Yes he has. He’s also been milking the franchise for every cent, but I can’t really argue with that. The original trilogy is entirely awesome after all.
However, nothing has struck as much a chord with Star Wars fans on the recent Blu-Ray release as the dubbing of Darth Vader screaming ‘Nooooooooo!’ whilst lifting the evil Sith Emperor high above his head and casting him out to oblivion.
This is what you can expect the changed scene to be, if you decide to pick the movie up:
Has Lucas messed up the new Star Wars Blu-Ray release? Does Star Wars now belong the fans than Lucas? It’s hard to say, but regardless the fans have fought back. A little. The guys over at CineWeekly.com have managed to put together this little video of Darth Vader’s new ‘Noooooooooo!’ line dubbed over some other films which I found rather amusing. Check it out:
The ‘Field of Dreams’ one cracked me up completely. Cool, huh? Let me know in the comments section below!
