    You can't call them "enhancements" when they're so jarring and out of place with the rest of the movie.

    They are jarring. You have CGI ships suddenly appearing in a battle that was filmed many years before using models. I enjoyed seeing them once or twice when the SE were released, but it gets to why I keep saying they should be optional. People should be allowed to see the movie in it's original form.

    Another change up there with the "Nooooo!" Adding the young Anakin Force Ghost in the end of ROTJ. :fu:

    I saw that some guy (kt650 or something) has made a "partially specialized edition" or something.
    Sounds like he took most of Harmy's high quality footage, but added back things that were seen as more "enhancements" than pointless dicking around.

    At some point we will get the original editions on Blu-Ray. Too much money on the table for Disney and FOX not to come to an agreement to do this now that Lucas is out of the way.

    Another change I hated was the CGI Jabba in ANH. The scene looked bad even at the time of the release and hasn't held up well at all.

    Young Anakin ghost floored me. Why not replace Sir Alec with Ewan McGreggor too?

    I think they should give this Harmy guy a job releasing the original trilogy.

    He clearly has some skill, and more importantly, an absurd dedication to the task. Throw him some money, get him some employees, and give him access to a film scanner and the work prints from the vault. The guy already knows exactly what to do...most of his work now has just been finding the best copies.

    I bet you could get the whole trilogy done for under a million bucks.

    I've heard it explained that he was returned to the state of his being before turning to the dark side. Still absolutely hated the change, but at least this explains the reasoning behind it.

    Am I remembering wrong or didn't they remove the yub nub song at the end of ROTJ in the SE? I know they extended it to add celebration scenes and added additional music, but I am not 100% sure if yub nub was cut.

    Yeah, Yub Nub was cut for the "Victory Celebration" track, with someone shouting "Son of sons!" in the background the whole time.

    Orchestrally, it's great though.

    Yub nub is out (in fact that 650 guy offers two versions of ROTJ, one with and one without).

    Yub Nub was part of my childhood. I know people hate on ewoks but I never minded them that much. The song was catchy.
