The Force Is Weak With This Blu Ray

Oh you got to be kidding me. When I first heard about this, I thought it was a joke. (Someone please tell me this is a joke; I’ll be happy to get pwned, or whatever, in this instance.

Fans are seeing more edits from the Blu Ray edition of the “Star Wars” films, and well, a whole bunch are rather vexed.

Complaining about how and what George Lucas changes in his movies feel like a waste of time and energy to me, but that’s not stopping hordes of “Star Wars” fans from seething online over what seem to be pretty pointless tweaks. The Blu-Ray edition isn’t even out yet — it drops Sept.16 — and much of the furor stems from videos on YouTube allegedly syncing up a leaked audio clip with existing video.

Whether the videos reflect real changes — or are just a horrific hoax — the one drawing the most outrage appears to be the climax in “Return of the Jedi” when Darth Vader turns against the Emperor to save Luke Skywalker. For a reason I certainly can’t fathom, LucasFilm has apparently decided to voice in a comment from Vader for emphasis. So he says “no.” Twice.
