So besides the stuff Lucas re-did to the OT movies, for example, Greedo shoots first, what could Lucas have done to ruin the OT films....say in the way he nearly ruined the NT films.

Or what decisions would have ruined your favorite charcters?



*I think explaining the origins of Yoda, and Dagobah would have ruined ESB. The mystery of Yoda made him a compelling character. For example, it would have been awful to see Yoda crack out a lightsaber, explain the force as microscopic bacteria, or have him sitting in a council chair dispelling fortune cookie phrases. His senility and gruff nature was flawless in ESB.

Here's another question. In 2019, will we get a re-release/special edition of the Prequel Trilogy with Jar Jar Binks digitally removed?

George Lucas said it himself, movies are never really finished...

Having R2-D2 and/or Chewbacka speak english would have wrecked there characters. It's a little more interesting not understanding what they are saying. It also makes it feel a little more like another 'world'.

"nearly"??

In answer to your question Id say replacing all the models with CGI.

Having the little girl with braces dance around with the other kids as young Anakin first starts his Podracer in the Phantom Manace almost ruined it for me.
I guess though they had Orthodontists on Tatooine a long time ago in a Galaxy far far away.

Seeing what happened to Jar Jar in the OT.
Watching Han take a side-trip while deciding on helping Luke at the Death Star.
Having Vader realize who R2 and 3PO were and conversing with them at any point in the OT.
Having Vader explain who Boba Fett is.
Showing Fett clone heads under stormtrooper helmets.
Having Vader explain why he didn't want Boba shooting Chewie (because of 3PO, right guys? :p).
Watching Luke bury Yoda's clothes. ;)
Having the Emperor talk to Vader more in ESB about anything.
Not explaining Han's ROTJ plan better... oh wait. :D

Well, you know those slaves did have a great dental plan. ;)

to start off, two words... FART JOKES, TONS on 'em

Giving Lando a Grill and some CGI bling

Digitally adding the "made in China" on the legs of every character

Changing the DS2 to a pyramid (and shoehorning in a bunch of new dialogue to really drive the point home)

Vader having flashbacks to the PT ALL the DAMN time (ideally mostly to the "romantic" bits)

Boba Fett escaping the Sarlacc

More musical numbers (ESB doesn't even have one, GOTTA be fixed)

Working Endor, Kashyyk, Naboo,Dagobah, Corcoscente and tatooine into every film (since tatooine got skipped in ESB and most of the others got completely overlooked)

:beard: Iso&Baws

Lots more could be posted in this here thread

Yeah, Watto should have been cashing in on that with all the metal he has for braces. Anakin could have gone onto orthodontics instead of droid fixing and podracing.

Having Han die at the beginning of ROTJ....

3PO was supposed to have a used car salesman type of voice, that would have ruined it.

Lucas writing and directing ESB and ROTJ himself. That would've done the saga in right then and there.

Lucas creating Prequel Movies and changing the Continuity in the First Movies, oh wait that did happen.

Lucas' mere edit of ESB would have apparently doomed the saga.

more wacky jawa hijinks.
all singing all dancing dianoga replacement puppet.
digitally added genitals on chewbacca.
the emperor licking his lips every time Luke gets mentioned.
a thousand more victory celebration scenes across the galaxy after the emperor dies.
digitally replacing spirit alex guinness with ewan mcgregor and the spirit yoda puppet with cgi yoda to match the digitally altered spirit anakin at the funeral pyre of vader.
R2 flying anywhere.
more 'gags' in threepio dialogue.
inserting a flashback of toddler Leia playing ball with Bail and Breha Organa in an Alderaan garden with the faint echoing sound of child's laughter while Luke tells Leia she's his sister.
an extended soft focus T-16 skyhopper race between Luke, Biggs and a couple of local yahoos when Luke tells Uncle Owen he wants to head off to the academy and Owen says No.
Danny Elfman redoing the entire score.
