I've been here long enough to notice the clear disapproval of the OT Special Editions. My question: Why? I know, I know: there are certainly some misjudged edits (Greedo shooting first comes to mind). Also, one might recall the old maxim, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But, if considered fully, nothing in the Special Editions takes away from the original versions. In fact, I think the films become stronger with the enhanced special effects and the added scenes. (Is there a soul who believes that the re-edited ROTJ ending was a step down?) And I don't think the Special Editions necessarilly tarnish the integrity of the original versions. After all, George Lucas himself presided over the changes. And I'm sure he had the prequel trilogy in mind; doing so provides a stronger cohesion throughout the whole series. Don't get me wrong, though. I'm not one of these people who is clamoring for a Super Special Edition. (CG Yoda in the OT, etc.) In fact, I very much like the original, pre-SE versions. But, it's Star Wars, and I love the Special Edition versions just as much. I just don't understand the great disdain for the SE.
