It's confirmed now by several reviewers:Topless Robot's Changes Article #1
I think I've made an "official" decision when it comes to Star Wars. Much like old cartoons from my childhood, things like Voltron, Thundercats, Transformers, etc, I prefer to remember my memory of them than to go back and try to relive them. It's not possible, and it only serves to damage my memories. I can barely look at Transformers with all the abuse they've gotten at the hands of Michael Bay, and yet, in the grand scheme, what he's done isn't anywhere near what Lucas keeps doing.
Instead, I choose to remember the memory. I choose to remember how much I loved them as a kid. I might even choose to hang on to my first nerd-rage memories of how they changed the end song of Jedi back when I was in high school. Or the I'm too numb to rage over sticking whiny little Anakin into the re-re-re-re-re-release of the movies of DVD. I choose to remember the joy of my first toys, pretending that wrapping paper tubes were lightsabers as a kid, and finding Star Wars LEGO as an adult.
Because I certainly can't take enjoyment out of them anymore. I wasn't interested in the Blu-Ray version of the movie, to be honest. I hate my PS3 anyway, and tend to only buy BRD when they also include the DVD and a digital copy. But I've already bought these movies 3 times as an adult, and each time, it's like getting molested by Uncle George just a little bit more.
I know that he says he couldn't "realize his initial vision" in the original movies, but I'm calling complete **bleep** on that. You only have to go look at the awful initial treatment or watch the first movie to realize he basically just made it up as he went. It's plainly obvious, especially when you see the script and see that Darth Vader wasn't a title, it was actually the guy's name (writted as D. Vader... you know, like it was a towel or something).
But he realized he could turn it into his own personal money machine, and has been milking it for all its worth since then. Lucas is a hack, and we all know it. In his life, he's had one big idea, and has been trying to milk it for decades because he obviously doesn't have any other good ideas (and you only need to watch the PT to see that there was not a single good idea in the whole thing).
I'm not going to say I'm done with Star Wars, because I obviously buy things like LEGO, but I am certainly done with buying increasingly bastardized versions of the film. I'm going to remember how I used to like them, nyub-nybu song and all.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.
