Lucasfilm Defends Original OT on DVD


As previously reported, Lucasfilm will be releasing the theatrical versions of the Original Trilogy via a non-anamorphic transfer. This has resulted in a lot of frustrated fans because the laserdisc style transfer is a much lower resolution and places black bars on the sides of the picture on widescreen TVs. Lucasfilm's justification for this? They are simply a "bonus", so apparently we should be happy with the 1990's quality transfer in 2006. Read the full story at VideoBusiness.com.

Defender Wishlists 2006: Return of the Jedi


For the last couple of years we've run an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films. Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2006, we thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists.

After four weeks of list taking, we'll publish the results.

We'll continue with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, the final movie for our wishlists. If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Site's Databank for Episode VI. Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

OT DVDs to be Non-Anamorphic Widescreen?


The Digital Bits has a rather interesting article stating the upcoming DVD releases of the Original Trilogy theatrical versions will not be in anamorphic widescreen. What does this mean for us? Basically, it is a sacrifice in quality because they will be using the laserdisc transfers from 1993 instead of the higher resolution technology available today. Let's hope George Lucas is able to track down the original theatrical prints in order to give us the quality that's expected in 2006. Thanks to forum member MWB for the info!

Vader's Bad Day On Robot Chicken


The talk of the Star Wars Community the last week or so has been a stop-motion short from the Cartoon Network show, Robot Chicken. For the unaware, the show uses action figures to animate out bits and things. It's a great show on Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim".

The latest episode featured a great spoof on Star Wars about Vader making a call with some bad news to his boss, Palpatine. You can check out the bit here at YouTube.com. Beware it's slightly adult-themed, but clean enough.
