    I found links to these on the Classic Trilogy boards.

    Rebel has proved their worthiness before, and now they chime in with something we cannot even come close to have confirmation on. Here's what we do know: After Episode III, there will be a definitive version and complete set of DVDs of all of the movies. In the meantime, there may be versions of the films on DVD, but nothing like this final set.

    Something to keep in mind as you buy a few different versions now and then have to buy the final one in 2006. But here's where it gets interesting. What possible changes could be made to tie in the entire series into one seamless twelve-hour marathon? There's an official list starting somewhere, which may include some of the following:

    Episode 3 won't be the last time you'll see a lot of the main characters from the prequels in a Star Wars film. They'll also be in some of the sequels. Let me explain.

    I believe it is called "The Archival Editions"...The re-release of all six films after a break following Episode 3. My source is good and I know this is happening, and frankly George Lucas is beyond a genius to think of this to make more money. Also this may explain some of the reasons episodes 4-6 haven't hit DVD yet. So here is some of the cool stuff you'll see.

    During production on Episode 3 they will also be filming stuff for episodes 1, 4 , 5 and 6 to add into the Archival Editions.

    Bail Organa senate scenes in Episode 1 to be shot added later to where the other Bail's lost scenes were supposed to be.

    Also the last time you see Bail Organa won't be escorting Padme and baby onto a starship and blasting into the stars in E3. An older Bail will have some scenes added into Episode 4 prior to his planet being blown up by the Death Star.

    Those being added into E4 will be a senate scene where The Emperor will make a cameo. Arguing with you guessed it ...Bail Organa... Plus a scene after the senate hearing where The Emperor contacts Vader and orders him to "Wipe out" Senator Organa's planet.

    A holographic photo of Qui Gon will be added to Ben Kenobi's house in ANH. Also other little Jedi Tidbit's from the first 3 episodes will be added in his house. "Old friends long gone."

    A scene on Coruscant in Episode 5 showing a demolished Jedi Temple. Cutting to the Emperor speaking with Vader about the son of Skywalker.

    Hey people...I just heard it on good authority (in other words a reliable source anyway) that while filming ATTACK OF THE CLONES, Lucas did 2 additional scenes for the OT including The Emperor and one for Episode 3. One is a remake of the scene from TESB where Vader speaks to the Emperor (Ian McDiarmid's voice included of course), plus there?s a scene on Coruscant also involving the Emperor too... info on this is sketchy but its probably for JEDI as he heads out for the Death Star, but could also be for A NEW HOPE I suppose? The 3rd additional scene (for Episode 3) I've heard about was filmed in Tunisia, it involves Anakin & Padme (possibly holding something) as well as Obi-Wan. Could this be the final scene of Episode 3 where Luke Skywalker is brought to his hew home?




    G. May 2003 ? AICN Jedi Council report http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=15302

    FROSTY SKYWALKER: We all know that he?s doing these ?Final Editions,? and I am curious...

    MORIARTY: You know that he says he?s not doing them, right?

    FROSTY SKYWALKER: He is. There is fifteen minutes being put back into STAR WARS [Episode IV: A New Hope]. That?s an absolute certainty. I?m interested to see what he does as the quote-unquote Final Editions and after seeing him talk at The Egyptian, I actually gained...




    Hmmmmm....

    That "Little jedi tibits" thing i have heard before, but i haven't heard of Qui-Gon being in it. And I think that scene between Bail and Palpateen should be pretty cool.

    "Beyond a genius"?? I don't think so. Shameless, maybe.

    I agree with Neech, some of the original painted posters would have made much cooler cover art... not that I give a crap, I definately won't be buying them.

    Altering Boba Fett's Voice on DVDs?
    Thu, Jul 15, 04 01:32:57 AM EDT


    We're still hearing rumors and rumblings about changes to the Classic Trilogy movies when they arrive on DVD this September - but even official details about the new "extended versions" of the films have been tightly held. What would you think if we told you that in addition to other audio enhancements, Boba Fett has been altered to have a New Zealender's accent? Wild, but true.





    and there is alsoa new Palpatine Hologram figure from ESB advertised on the OS which confirms a dialogue and actor change .

    The ghastly visage of the twisted Emperor peers from beneath his heavy cowl as he contacts Darth Vader via hologram to inform him of a new threat. The Rebel that destroyed the Death Star is none other than the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. From this fateful communiqué, the Sith Lords concoct a new insidious scheme - they will corrupt Luke, and bring him to the dark side.


    Doin' the happy dance....

    What in the F### was wrong with Boba Fett's voice!?!!!? :eek:

    He had no accent and that's what was cool.

    And who your father is has absolutly NO effect on your accent. And I like the Stormtroopers accent better than the Clonetrooper's, but i doubt that GL cares what my opinion is :( :p


    EDIT: This is the pic of Ian McDirmid in ESB

    And a comparison between the original and the DVD emporers

    I can't find any right-wing war-monger boards :p Don't get me wrong, I like star wars and all, but I'm not going to buy endless releases for the sake of it. I'll probably spring for the archival editions though.

    I wouldn't hold your breath (and If you can't find any right-wing messga boards on the internet you're really not looking hard enough).

    Seeing those pics, I prefer the "Original" Emperor in ESB. Looks much more menacing/evil/beady-eyed.

    those pics have been floating around for ages and I don't think they're the real deal. If they're legit then changing them is pointless cos that doesn't look like Ian to me.

    That's definately Ian McDiarmid. It's his jawline and famous facial expression. And if they were fake somebody spent alot of money on getting make up looking that good for a simple hoax!!!

    Amen to that. I really hope that most of these aleged changes never materialise, as proff that George has regained at least a little of his sanity and integrity. Though I don't know that there's much hope of that...

    Amd just because that's definitely Ian McDiarmid in that pictures doesn't mean it's not fake. Personally, I'm not staking a claim either way, but with a picture of Ian in makeup and of the background, I know that I could Photoshop up something identical to that image. It looks good, and it is McDiarmid, but that doesn't mean it's the real deal, just like that RotJ picture with Hayden that's floating around. Still, UNLIKE the addition of Hayden to RotJ, I think putting Ian into ESB is good, and I have no problem with it.

    I gotta say... you'd have to have some exceptional skills in Photoshop to get an image looking that good because that's not Ian McDiarmid from either TPM, AotC or RotJ. It's all new make-up which could only mean it's from the OT DVDs or from Ep3 (and as far as I know there's been no photos or proof for that matter leaked of Ian looking like this in the third prequel).

    You've got to access the evidence here; We've all seen what Lucas has done in the past with the THX-1138, TPM and AotC DVD releases. All of them have been altered in some way. I really don't think it's a big stretch to believe the man capable of doing this to the OT DVD release.

    I've never doubted that that particular change has been made, to tell you the truth I only looked at the thumbnails of those images and now after looking at the full size ones I have to say that it does look like the real deal.

    I have very little doubt that all the rumours are true (including that pic of Anakin in RotJ) just going by what Lucas has done in the past. The man changes his mind more than he does his clothes.

    Soooo, Anakin would be, in apparition form, younger than Luke in RotJ?

    I just watched it and it didn't bother me as much as I though it would (I do no the reason why he appears young and I can accept it).
