Block your ears, more changes to the original Star Wars movies

Aug. 30, 2011by:

If you're excited for the impending release of the STAR WARS Blu-Ray box set, it's possible you've gained a tolerance to the tragedy of the prequels and George Lucas' perpetual tinkering with the original trilogy.

You can prepare yourself early for more of the galaxy-maker's mucking around -- there are reportedly some audio changes being made to the STAR WARS OT, including (but almost assuredly not limited to) the ones recently revealed below and verified by Badass Digest.

Apparently to keep some kind of weird continuity with Darth Hayden's hilariously melodramatic cry of "NNNOOOOOOOOO!!!" from the end of REVENGE OF THE SITH, ol' George has looped in a similar moan of anger when Vader chucks the Emperor to his doom in JEDI.

And then there's the replacement for Ben Kenobi's Krayt Dragon shriek he used in STAR WARS to spook the Sandpeople, which now sounds more like a Tauntaun unsuccessfully trying to fend off anal intrusion by a Rancor. Which I suppose would have the same terrifying effect on anyone who hears it.

Expect to see lists of all the alterations to the movies (this time, anyway) as review copies of the set make the rounds, but for now you can experience the new noises below. (Note that the footage itself is from a previous release, dubbed with the new leaked audio.)

Extra Tidbit: Sadly, "NNOOOOOO!!!" is a word that nobody can (or will) say to George Lucas.

Overreact much?

Stop making a big deal out of nothing. It's his vision and all of the edits haven't been nearly as bad as "fans" have been making them out to be.

100% agree. I mean C'mon...if you've been a Star Wars fan since 1977 or 2011, The ACTUAL movie (i.e. 99.9% of the saga) DOES NOT CHANGE! it's still as cool as it was even w/ EVERY ONE of the changes: greedo shooting 1st, revamped jabba & his new palace song, CGI yoda, No "Yub-Yub" ewok song, Hayden's Anakin in "Jedi", all the "Nooo!".

Jesus, please quit bitching about every SMALL little detail. it won't make a lick of difference to the next genertaion of future star wars fans who will soon see

Except they're not small changes. The NOOOO in particular changes the dynamic of the scene, going for [link] obvious rather than subtlety. Plus, it makes no fucking sense. Why doesn't the Emperor turn around when Vader starts wigging out?

No one cares when Michael Mann makes small edits to his films, since the material and intent stay the same, most of Lucas' changes dominate the scenes they are in.

I'm really glad I was never a Star Wars fan so I could look at these films objectively. Only a

This is just terrible. What an idiot. I really think his old age has gotten to him.

Ive always half expected him to edit out the Luke and Leia kiss because it obviously shows that the saga WASNT planned out like he likes to suggest.

Boycott! Who's in?

I just started a Facebook page to say "Noooo!!!" to the "Nooooo!!!" [link]
Like it to send a message to Lucas that we're not buying the box set if he keeps in that awful audio change. He can have it for his home version, but the rest of us say, well, you know!

Ever get the feeling George Lucas doesn't get 'Star Wars'?
One of my favourite scenes in the original 'Star Wars' was the bit on the Death Star when our heroes unexpectedly come face-to-face with a stormtrooper patrol. Han bluffs them with a yell of empty bravura and chases those guys around a corner, only to come face-to-face with them once again, because the troopers have run into a dead end and they've had no other option but to turn and face their pursuer. Han gives an "Oh shit!" look,

Han gives an "Oh shit!" look, shoots and runs away as fast as his legs can carry him.
The revisionist version has Han chase the handful of troopers into a giant hanger filled with hundreds of stormtroopers.
Well... anyone would run away from that, wouldn't they? Way to ruin not only a great comedic moment, but also an insight into Han's true character, George.

This can't be real. It just can't be. Lucas cannot be THAT stupid. As much as I've come to despise him, I truly cannot believe these 2 instances were actually added.

No one's even substantiated these clips yet or where they came from. And if they ARE real, well, I'm glad I wasn't buying them in the first place. It to me, just proves that the originally trilogy was an absolute fluke that, which was simply "right time, right place" for audiences to embrace something so different. He truly is

Amen. And last time I watched Airplane I figured out why. He's the only character in the entire movie not playing it deadpan. To have this one genuinely zany character in a minor role cuts through all the straight-faced Zemeckis hilarity and makes everything funnier.

That Krayt Dragon scream is hysterical. There's no way that's real. If that somehow does turn out to be real, I might just pick the Blu-Ray set up, just for the LOLs.

This is why I've totally written off Star Wars. Nothing left there. Lucas has taken a once great saga and completely ruined it. Now it's just a cash register.

Maybe one day, when he's long gone, one of his kids will come to their senses and restore them to what they're supposed to be. Until then, I'm sitting this shit out.

you are all correct

the version of star wars that you guys made (in your head) is way better than his. Dump on him all you like but he created this franchise and no other director has come even close to having anything like it. We might not like it but its his to do with as he wishes.

What else can I say, but "NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

George, this is almost as bad as the time you released the '97 versions when you had Luke scream like a whiny baby when he took the noble fall at the end of Empire. Thankfully you wizened up and edited that back out before you started releasing the DVDs. This is a BAD idea! I'm out. I'm not buying the BluRays now. I'm going back to my original VHS tapes of the original trilogy.

Since they're probably some of the last copies of the real Star Wars movies in existence? Don't talk to me about the DVD release they did (which I'm pretty they've discontinued by now), the quality in picture and sound is about the same.

Total fucking bullshit. This was a powerful scene that showed well the silent internal struggle between light and dark that culminates with the light winning. That added no is utter nonsense. I am so disgusted watching that new audio clip. No way in hell I am buying the blu-ray. My orig trilogy dvd set is good enough. It seems like everyday theirs new and good reasons to hate that fat fuck Lucas even more. I've never seen a man intentionally rape one of the greatest sci-fi franchises ever,

Vader now Tips off the Emperor

In the original scene Vader was torn, you could see it, and his sudden action took the Emperor by surprise. Why couldn't the Emperor sense Vader's internal shift...because he was hell bent on destroying Luke.
Add the simple word "No" and everything changes.
If I am the Emperor I hear "No" and say, "What? Uh Oh What's wrong Vader?" That puts me on my guard and draws my attention to what you are about to do. Lucas may as well have Vader tap the Emperor on the shoulder and say, "Um, excuse me

Yes...it negatively affects the scene THAT much.

I was excited for this box set. I could live with the changes he has made over the years, even the new cgi Yoda. However, the no is UNACCEPTABLE. To me that moment is what the entire saga is about. He brings balance to the force during the moment when he kills the emperor. In silence, it was perfection. With the no, it ruins everything. I am still going to hold onto a little ounce of hope that this isn't real. If it is, I just can't bring myself to buy the new set knowing that I will

There is no need to 'enhance' star wars unless its just to make the picture better over time. There is no need to change scenes.. add audio... addd visual effects to movies that originally didn't have it.. Yes the remastered edition in the 90s was fantastic but after that.... seriously....... WHY!

Does Geroge just not get how iconic some of this stuff is?

Oh yeah, and I have to add that as much as those two changes are very very unnecessary, the first one just totally destroys the scene. All of Vader silent confusion over what is happening in front of him? Being silently torn inside between his son and his master? Gone. Destroyed.
One of the strongest moments of the original trilogy. The best scene of Return Of The Jedi....

One word:

Why?
Ok, more than one f#ckin' word! F#cking Lucas! A long time ago, in THIS freakin' galaxy were 3 movies that I loved the way they were made. Even with their flaws (which were minimal to begin with). Then came the "new" editions in the 90s and I think most were ok with them. And then, it all went downhill and doesn't seem to be able to stop. And I find it very sad. And I would even say that I'd be ok with the way too many changes over the years if Lucas made the originals available. I mean

And I would even say that I'd be ok with the way too many changes over the years if Lucas made the originals available. I mean why not? Is he afraid to realize that the vast majority of us would buy the original versions over his "improved" ones? Why not give US what WE want? It is us that have made you all that money over the many years after all. So when some are at the point of begging for f#cking movies, MOVIES (it really is ridiculous when you really think about it, but for a lot of people these 3 movies are more than movies) Is it that hard to listen George?
So you know what I went and just did, right now? I canceled my purchase of the pre-sale Blu-rays. I will instead "find another way" to get my hands on the new bonus material that at this point seem like the only/last good thing about the Blu-rays.

P.S. It's funny that, and I don't know how many of you know this, but it's funny that Mr. Lucas was one of the speakers in 1988 at a congressional hearing (no less!) to express his concern about colourising old black and white movies. That in doing so it would constitute the destruction of our film heritage.
What happen between 1988 and today? I think someone has turned to the dark side for real...

Lucas Trollololol

I'd laugh my ass off if all the reported "changes/corrections" being made for the Blu-Ray release was just Lucas trolling the Star Wars fanboys and the films were released as was(?) upon original release.
Fingers crossed for best movie practical joke ever!

No matter how many of us are fed up and sick of Lucas and his shit-tinkering antics, there will never be ENOUGH of us who will refuse to purchase merchandise, thus our shrieks of "NoooO!" will go unheard and unnoticed.

The really funny part about all this is that because he keeps tweeking and re-releasing the films, he's now fixing to ruin the childhoods of kids born AFTER the Special Edition release of 1997. Hahahaha. Fuckith thou, oh Lucas of Georges.

I like the changes. The originals were clearly of such poor value that Lucas has to retouch them up every time he wants them to try and make money by riding on the I-III films' coattails.

Psh, by all means try to perfect what is most assuredly the most unwatched, hated, and insignificant three films of all time.

For fuck's sake, George...
I could have lived with the first brief "no", even though still entirely unnecessary. But why the second long one reminding me of Revenge of the Sith? Where does he get these ideas? Does he just wake up and think, I should revamp Ben's yodel from A New Hope?

That was just... awful

Giving Vader dialogue in that scene just nullifies all of the emotion in it. He stood there with his mouth shut, not knowing whether to save his own son or stay loyal to his master. All he did was ponder, not say one goddamn word. I normally don't have a problem with the changes Lucas made, but this is one that completely ruins the scene. No more emotion, just cheese.

EXACTLY! You have NO idea what exactly he's feeling underneath that mask. His burnt face could be wrought with anguish, fighting himself while his machine half is the last to react.

This "Nooooo" performance is not James Earl Jones approved.

If he's going to keep changing things, maybe he'll eventually make a version without Jar-Jar. Or a version with just Jar-Jar.

Now thats honestly something I never thought of. A horny rancor. Creepy and yet very humorous at the same time. As for the sound change, it could be worse. I will stay neutral on this for now.

The first one just doesnt works and the second would work if the original wasnt just fine as is. If he did something big like worked in something big like a spectacular battle, itd still be bad but at least it wouldnt be petty shit like this

There is only one reason I'm not stoutly and firmly saying this is a hoax...because Lucas has done this kind of asshattery before.
I would put nothing past his desire to rape his own work further. Agreed with earlier statements that these changes add absolutely nothing to the existing material.

George Lucas has a medical condition where he can only get an erection by pissing people off. He'll now be set for life.

Further reason why this Blu-Ray set is for suckers. The only people who want to hear Vader say NOOOOO are the people who need their hands held through stories like Star Wars. Lucas literally spells out emotions for us and fans will love that. Not this fan. I won't spend a single dime on the Star Wars franchise anymore.

Come on guys, is this actually real? Lucas is a fat fucking greedy asshole with terrible taste, but even this seems too comical for him.

Edit: It's been confirmed... wow.. that's just fucking awful. There are no other words.

confirmed by who? Reviews of the test blu-ray set? I know that the Yoda change was officially announced so I want to see that before I get all riled up here.

I've always been a firm believer . . .

that if it ain't broke, you don't fix it. Well, now it's fucking broke! Fix it Lucas! DO IT NAOW!

Really? The Darth Vader one sucks, but the Obi-Wan one is laughingly bad.

April's Fools?

What's the point of even making these trivial, pointless changes? I understand (but not necessarily support) the changes when the DVD's came out to add continuity with the prequels, but these changes do not need to exist.
