Star Wars: From dream sci-fi bride to perfect Blu-ray wife
A new hope to sell even more Skywalker tat
Here's a pun-splattered heads-up to all you Star Wars fans out there. In about two hours' time news will reach us from a secret server located on the distant planet Bespin that Maythe4thbewithyou will prove a good day for the Lucasian franchise.
There's a countdown and everything!
The gimmicky website created in honour of the "Big Reveal" is currently teasing hordes of Star Wars fans.
LucasFilm owns the domain, and aficionados are already guessing that the announcement will serve up juicy details about the forthcoming Star Wars – the Complete Saga, which comes out in Blu-Ray format in September.
This strap-line offers some pretty heavy, star-trooping clues.
Vulture Central, of course, welcomes the news. But we hope Mr George Lucas has kept any Jar Jar Binks extras out of the mix. As you were, Tatooine
farm fan boys. ®
So, it'll just be the crappy star wars prequels with the horribly redone originals?
You know fine, please clean up the image to correct for things like faded colour and damage to the film itself.
But, please.. don't re-edit the film or add bits. It's worst in the first film, where Lucas changed Han Solo's character by shooting after Greedo (yes I went there), adding a horribly done Jabba scene and the horrible, horrible cg bits or where the random droids move perfectly horizontally across the screen filling it as Luke and Obi Wan arrive at Mos Eisley.
Who am I joking, he'll just release the shitty versions. But, honestly I bought them once on VHS and that's enough. If they aren't the original versions, why bother?
You belittle Star Wars fans as 12 year olds, and then say you never got round to watching them because you spent your university years in a drug induced coma? That's a real mature approach.
Note to Self
Don't use data centres on Alderaan
Give it rest George!
Anyone remember when the VHS boxsets came out? There was a gold and silver edition, FFS! Not to mention the Our Price (remember them? ) VHS boxset. How many DVD box sets have there been since then too?!
Give a rest George, you've got enough money, how about getting off your arse making some genuine original SciFi fare? Something genuinely new and exciting? If not, then how about remaking THX-1138? I don't like remakes as a rule but I reckon that could really benefit from the modern makeover.
Will it be the version that made me shout at the tv at the end of ROTJ?
