New versions of OT on Disney+?
« on: November 12, 2019, 11:21 AM »
I haven't started Disney+ yet (still trying to be productive at work) but reading some stuff on Twitter about changes being made to ANH (again) - HanVsGreedo has been tweaked (Greedo gets the last line of dialogue now and whatever he says is not subtitled).  Also heard they tweaked some of the stuff with R2-D2 hiding from the Jawas. 

It'll be interesting to give it a watch and see what else has been tweaked for these digital releases...

Apparently we have NEW changes to the OT with the launch of Disney+. Something about a new shot of Greedo before Han shoots him. I haven't signed up for Disney+ yet since I'm at work, but there are rumors of other small changes as well.

Apparently the Disney+ versions of the films are the 4K versions Lucasfilm was allegedly working on before the Disney sale, so maybe this is all stuff Lucas was planning and was held over.

I'm trying to look into this more.

Because that's what the fans have been clamoring for....more changes to the OT.
This is the way.

I can confirm this Greedo change.  I can also confirm that the digital copy in the Vudu and Movies Anywhere services do not have this change.

So "MacKlunkey" is now a thing in Star Wars.

I am continually surprised by the knowledge of Star Wars fans.  It's actually "ma klounkee" and it's always been a thing in Star Wars.  Sebulba says it to lil Anakin in Episode I.  :o

Sebulba:
"Neek me chawa, wermo, mo killee ma klounkee."  (Next time we race, wermo, it will be the end of you!)
"Una notu wo shag, me wompity du pom pom."  (If you weren't a slave, I'd squash you right now.)

source


So now, in Lucas canon, Greedo threatens Han (it will be the end of you) and that starts the same-time laser shots.  Crazy that this is still a thing that is changing after all these years...

I like it better than it had been.  Still prefer Han just cutting him down though.

It would've been funny if the scene was cut entirely and Jabba's dialogue was changed to "Why are you avoiding me, Solo?" or something. Greedo de-canonized.

Just watched the clip.  That is NOT an improvement.

They need to put that scene back how it was.  They've just muddied it up over and over again.

Iím all for this at this point. This continued re-editing is ridiculous.

I agree it's ridiculous but we've also all seen the original and know how that went so whatever.

It's just another reason to watch Star Wars: Revisited.  As far as I'm concerned, it's the definitive cut of the movie.

Saw the Greedo change. Shrugged.

I need to eventually get my hands on the original (Ď77) on Blu-ray. Iíve got the Harmy on my PC but itís a pain to stream to my TV.
