But he didn't direct them, and messing with another artists creation is poor judgement, especially when they are not involved in the project. If they could have fixed the ANH Jabba scene properly I would have loved to see it in there. If they could splice Han out and make him step on Jabba's tail they should have just as easily been able to make him walk in front of Jabba using a little photo shop magic to reverse the image so he is looking the other way (ie still looking at Jabba). Other than that the film should not have been messed with (other than possibly restoring it to the original theatre release which i can no longer remember how it differed... any help there?).
