The DVD credits are the same SE credits with the 1997 copyrights still attached.

No mention of Ian McDiarmid in the credits.
Ditto Temuera Morrison, although Jason Wingreen was always uncredited as well.

And of course, no mention of Hayden in the ROTJ credits.

I wonder what that is all about, did he really forget??:confused:

I just watched Empire again last night and to be honest with you I liked the monkey-eyed old lady doing the Emperor alot better. I just thought that Ian tried to be the Emperor a little bit too much. The scene isn't bad but a bit over done.

It was the make-up that was the main problem with the new Emperor scene. And Ian tried to be Prequel Palpatine rather than ROTJ Palpatine (if that makes sense :crazed:.)

That's exactly what I was trying to say but didn't get the right words in there. He's just too deliberate with his wording and draws out all of the words not like in Jedi when he's quick with his comebacks and such.

Agreed. I like the new version of the scene, except for the new Emperor. He looks really really bad. Old Lady Monkey Eyes looked better.

I like the new scene and I'm so glad to have Ian back but I said long before all this OT DVD stuff that I would be content with just redubbing Ian's voice over the OLME Emp.

Would that sound like a fair compromise for those of you who dislike the new scene ? What bothers you more - the makeup or the voice ? Or both ?

I believe in another post I said both bother me and I haven't changed even after 3 viewings. It looks too clean to be in the Original Trilogy and, I forget who posted it but I agree with them, Ian's trying to sound too much like Prequel Emperor instead of the ROTJ one. I'm gonna have to live with it so I'll get used to it.
