Imagine, sometime in the future if the film rights to Star Wars are sold. Would you be in favour of a reboot, similiar to Star Trek?
No because that would mean redoing the originals that were already great as is. But then again, a reboot would be more welcoming than Lucas constantly messing and re-editing the originals.
Did you hear about the rumors the puppet Yoda is going to be replaced with a CGI one in "Star Wars: Episode I- The Phantom Menace 3-D?" Oh it gets better too. If the re-release of the prequel in 3-D is a hit, there's even rumors that Lucas will replace ALL THE PUPPETS from the original movies completely, and replace them with CGI counterparts. Meaning the puppet Yoda we saw in "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" could be replaced with a CGI version if the 3-D series continues up to that point...
...and knowing Georgie boi, if the 3D films do REALLY REALLY well, he will most likely replace all the actual, real actors with CGI ones.
Oh my god, will he stop at nothing? When I started this thread I didn't know where to stand on the reboot issue. But am now firmly against it, the originals should be left alone. Enough damage has been done. Have you seen the new ending to Return of the Jedi, where he now has Vader crying 'NOOOOOO' just before he picks up the Emperor. It looks like some fan film you'd find on youtube or something.
Wow, I guess old Georgie Boi really doesn't know when to quit. Hell, if he keeps this up, then he might find himself alienating the "Star Wars" franchise even from some of the most die hard of fans, at the rate he's going.
To answer you're question though, I haven't seen that ending of "Return of the Jedi", as the only two versions that I saw were the original theatrical one, and the special edition one, a while back when they re-released to promote the prequels' premiere. In my mind, those are the only two that exist, and I plan to keep it that way. If Lucas wants me to acknowledge the version you speak of, then he might have to pay me, as lord knows he owes me for all the time I know I'm going to waste watching and reviewing his "Star Wars" 3-D re-releases.
I'd have to say against a Star Wars reboot.. However, I did enjoy the Star Trek reboot a lot!
You know speaking of how much of a jackass George Lucas is, you guys may have inspired me to do something special for my review of the upcoming re-release star wars movie. Oh it'll be so much fun!
From what I have read the right to the star wars movies goes to speilberg (SP?) and I hope that he actually makes new movies to follow in the series. The whole rebooting thing with movies is getting out of control and to keep paying for something that you have already seen is a little ridiculous. Don't get me wrong I am a huge star wars fan and always will be, but I find myself more centered around the books than around the movies.

Star Wars wins hands down. I mean, Star Trek has Spock but that is not enough.
