RnQR I think tossed out the idea that you die as the Jedi you last were, or something to that effect.
I dunno... It's a tie-in, but I kind of liked the old Anakin too...
Then again, this isn't exactly something to get in a twist over either like the Han/Greedo thing or Luke's sissy scream.
I'm torn... The debate over what to add or change to the classic trilogy is an old one for sure. I'd personally welcome:
-Updated graphics on computer readouts/targeting displays in ships.
-Updated battles (ALL Major battles) to have more ships, troops, etc... Like Hoth I could envision lines of infantry running with the AT-AT's, or the EU concept of speederbikes. Some extra AT-ST's flanking the AT-AT's would be nice... I don't want the existing stop-motion work messed with though. It's CLASSIC and perfect if you ask me. They just need some filler.
I'd take Ewoks too... Add some Ewoks, change up the battle some.
And in the space battle of Endor, add Rebel ships... maybe (if he had some sense) tap the EU and stick an Imperial Interdictor Cruiser in there "holding" the Rebel Fleet there... It serves a purpose and you can easily show it being blown to pieces in a background shot. Some extra Reb ships would make it more balanced and climactic though.
I'd not mind seeing some Senate sequences intercut with ANH to show it being dissolved... Or editing in a Holographic EMperor into the conversation where Vader Chokes out Motti like a b!tch.
If these are done RIGHT, they'd be great IMO.
I'd do what I could to enhance saber battles too... Not over-do it, just do some small things to make them jive slightly more with the faster pace of the prequals.
And of course, edit BACK the Greedo scene, Luke's scream is deleted, touch up the Vader arrival in ESB so it's cleaner/more unique, and I'd add in a couple deleted scenes in their entirety AT LEAST on the bonus disc.
The Anchorhead sequence with Biggs, the Imperials/Wampas on Hoth, the Rebs/Wampas on Hoth, Jerjerrod/Vader/RG's on the DS2, and the Sandstorm farewell on Tatooine would all be things I'd like in their entirety.
Some expanded stuff on Jabba's Barge like the fight 3PO breaks up would be nice, and I'd not mind them adding the finished sequence of the Scout/Rebel disguised and Han/Troopers running gunfight DOWN the Corridor to the reactor. Those are things that expand the time, and give you a better sense of how lng things take.
I'd really want a truly ULTIMATE DVD set. It'd be putting to shame even the best that the LOTR trilogy would have to offer.
Alas, they appear to be working much harder on their DVD release(s).
