Star Wars fans response to Blu-ray: “NOOOO!”
The original “Star Wars” has been tweaked to change key scenes in its Blu-ray version, leading to the formation of a new rebel alliance against the altered film.
The original Star Wars trilogy, the cult classic science-fiction movie series created by George Lucas in the ’70s and ’80s, is about to be released on Blu-ray—with what many fans are calling unwelcome additions.
Some changes to the original movies are minor, like having the little teddy-bear creatures known as Ewoks blink. Star Wars enthusiasts, though, say other changes ruin the drama in certain scenes. Case in point, archvilliain Darth Vader saying “NOOOO” when he chucks his “master” off a steep edge.
“You don’t need to have him explaining his thoughts—you knew the dilemma he was going through,” said Kaminski. “You don’t need his thoughts externalized in such a cliché way. The silence in the original was sophisticated in that way.”
Fans, including celebrity Simon Pegg, agree with him. Here are some of the reactions we’ve collected on Storify.
