Back in 1988 when the Star Wars prequels had yet to gently caress our inner children in a questionable manner, George Lucas delivered a speech in front of Congress to help establish the National Film Registry. Interestingly, his speech included this sentiment: “In the future it will become even easier for old negatives to become lost and be ‘replaced’ by new altered negatives. This would be a great loss to our society. Our cultural history must not be allowed to be rewritten.” Of course, if he’s altering it, that’s still cool. Unleash the CGI rewrites.

We already knew he replaced the puppet Yoda with the CGI version in the Star Wars Original Trilogy on Blu-Ray, but now several videos are out (see detailed list below) about several other changes Lucas made to the originals [at least some of which have been confirmed by LucasArts], because that’s what these films needed: more resemblance to the prequels. Excuse me while I scream a multitude of profanities into a pillow. By pillow I mean megaphone.
