    stumbled upon this information concerning the Ultimate
    Edition SW and changes for 2006.


    An article on comingsoon.net has detailed information about changes to the Star Wars films for a boxset including all six films which is set to be released in 2006. Lucas has stated the so far confirmed changes for the prequels are minor but the original films have again been changed .Below are the confirmed changes :-

    THE PHANTOM MENACE:
    Some scenes with Jar Jar Binks have been trimmed slightly

    ATTACK OF THE CLONES:
    Noises Yoda makes while fighting Dooku changed

    REVENGE OF THE SITH:
    No changes confirmed yet

    A NEW HOPE:
    The 'Imperial March' music has been added to Vader's first appearence

    When Obi-Wan is talking to Luke about his father Anakin?s theme music can heard in the background and when Obi-Wan starts talking about Vader for it too change to the Imperial March

    Luke?s lightasberis blue throughout the film

    In several scenes where creatures are seen (e.g. The Cantina)some have been replaced that are featured in the prequels

    The bleeding arm Obi-Wan slices off a creature in the Cantina does not have blood seen on it

    Just before the Death Star destroys Alderaan there is a new scene added where different places on the planet can be seen along with Bail Organa & his wife

    Some of the Death Star?s computers and screens ahve been improved

    The opening text crawl has changed

    Luke looks sadder when Biggs dies and sheds a tear

    Luke only hears 'run' after Obi-Wan is killed

    THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK:
    Some shots where Taun-taun?s can be seen have been changed so the Tuan-tuan?s have more movement and look more realistic

    While the battle of Hoth is going on Imperial ships land near the Rebel base and a few more shots of ships flying and being destroyed have been added

    The monster in the asteroid looks more relistic

    Some of the views of Bespin (for example the background where Luke Is holding on to the metal poles beneath a building) have been improved to look more realistic and ships can be seen flying around in the distance

    RETUEN OF THE JEDI:
    Yoda dies and disappears leaving his clothes behind like Obi-Wan

    In the battle on Endor more Ewoks and Stormtroopers can be seen and are seen dieing. Members of Han?s team can be seen fighting as well.

    Vader uses the force to reclaim his lightasber after he throws it at Luke and the sound of him turning it on again has been removed


    Also in the article there is a list of other changes that are planned but not been started on yet. These are below :-

    THE PHANTOM MENACE:
    A Scene involving Bail Organa

    ATTACK OF THE CLONES:
    None

    REVENGE OF THE SITH:
    No Plans at present

    A NEW HOPE:
    The duel between Vader & Obi-Wan is slighgly longer as there are plans to add shots of the lightsabers clashing and the two enemys moving about more. Lucas is considering using music for the scene as well.

    Just after Owen & Luke buy C-3PO & R2-D2 Lucas is debating whether to have a flashback scene to where Luke is talking to Biggs. They talk about mainly Biggs joining the Rebel?s and Luke saying that he?s stuck helping his Uncle on Tatowine

    When the Millennium Falcon esacped Tatowine the plan is to show it breaking through the atmosphere of the planet and to see some close of shots of the ship as it is doing this

    There is a rumour that there may be a new scene included where before the medal ceremony at the end the Rebels are remembering their friends that died in the attack on the Death Star. Luke and possibly some of the other chracters can be included in the scene by using the facial movements from other scenes and photo relistic technolgy other the top of other actors

    The EMPIRE STRIKES BACK:
    A scene where Yoda is teaching Luke how to fight with a lightasber made possible by Luke wearing a helmet while training

    A scene where Stormtroopers bring Vader the box containing the parts of C-3PO; they ask him what to do with it and Vader says to leave the parts in the cell with the others
