I think Lucas is actually looking at things from a somewhat unique POV in the movie industry. He's actually willing to go back and fix things and not leave some screwups out there for all eternity. I think it's almost like a software company sending out updates for a program. They recognize the imperfections and fix them. So does Lucas. He has the will and the means to fix his mistakes. I can't fault him for going back and making the best movie that he can, even after the theatrical release.
I see what you're saying, but the original versions of SW occupy such a unique position in cinematic history that I believe they should be preserved for their historical value (artistic debates being an entirely separate issue). I don't see the harm in having the originals available, if for no other reason than as a basis for comparison with the updated versions.Quote
Palpatine tells the newly dubbed Darth Vader "Only one has learned the secrets of eternal life. Together we will unlock the secrets of the force..."
That seems to rule out Palpatine to me.
the secrets to eternal life wouldn't necessarily be the same thing as the secrets to creating life. plus he never says that the one person wasn't him, he just says to Anakin we will unlock the secrets of the force. that doesn't necessarily mean he is not aware of what the secrets are, just that he will be helping Anakin to find them.
