Now that the DVDs will feature new stuff added to the films, it made me think. What would I add or take out? So this thread is for any and everyone who has ideas of changes that could be made to the OT films. Then we can discuss fan ideas and our own. RULES: If your a purist you can't say "Change it all back to the way it was." You also can't do thing crazy like rewrite the whole thing. If you do have an idea for an added scene or tweaking one you have to explain how it can be done. So no Han and Liea love scene. So here's my changes: ANH: -I'd put in and restore the footage of Luke looking up and seeing the space battle. And the whole Wedge thing. WHY: Well Lucas cut this stuff out because he wanted the story structure to have each character lead to the next. Well with Prequels out that structure doesn't need to be. We know thes characters, most are already introduced. So why not put it back in. It give Luke a solcial life. With good editing and transition it could work. -New Death star introduction. I'd have a build up to the technological terror. I'd have the camera come up to a Stardestroyer as a shuttle comes out of it. The Camera would follow the shuttle to reveal the Death Star. Then a closeup of Vader inside the shuttle's cockpit looking on at the Death Star. Then cut to the shuttle landing and Vader walking out with a Princess Liea following. HOW: CGI, use Ep3 Vader suit, and have a Liea stand in out of focus. -Jabba scene. I'd add a slave girl standing in the background and put in Bib Fortuna either with a new actor in make up or unused footage from ROTJ digitally place in the docking bay. Plus I'd add a slime trail following Jabba as he slithers. Oh, and I'd have Jabba respond to Han's "Good human being" remark with a subtitled "I'm a hutt,smugger poodoo." -Death Star going into hyperspace. After Tarkin says set a course for Alderaan. Show the Death Star letting out a rocket and streaking into hyperspace. -Alderaan surface. Add footage fo Bail (Jimmy Smits) talkign with advisors about his Daughter's capture when suddenly he is informed that a large ship has come out of hyperspace with out a signal. Then have Bail watch as the green ray blasts part of the surface and then cut to a better explosion of the planet. -Rebel base: I'd add footage of the jungles of Yavin 4. Then add better effects to the Death Star briefing like ROTJ. Plus add in Admiral Ackbar and Mon Mothma, but simply watching the presentation. -Darth Vader goes to Coruscant. After the Rebels cheer and such, before the end celebration I'd have Vader head to the Emperor's temple on Coruscant. It's important to show how coruscant has changed. Vader goes up to the Emperor. Vader: My master, I have unsettleing news. Palpatine: I have sensed it coming for some time. The Death sTar has failed me. Vader: Tarkin's pride got the best of him. Palpatine: This is still some use of the Death Star plans. However, we must rearange our priorities. Vader: Yes, my master. Palpatine: We msut find the one responsible for destorying the Death Star, Vader: Intersepted tranmitions have confirmed that his name is... Palpatine: Skywalker? (pause) Yes. So Amidala did give birth. Find him, but for now let the Rebels have their little victory. I'll post my ESB post later. For now that it. What do you think. Post your ideas and critic others.
