ORIGINAL original trilogy Easter Egg?

Postby dodge » Sat May 26, 2012 3:46 pm

While building the other day, I threw my TV/VCR combo on the table and decided to break out my old SW trilogy VHS tapes. For contex, the tapes that I have are the 1996-ish reissue of the trilogy with the black sleeves and large pictures of Vader, Stormtrooper and Yoda respectively, and NOT the Special Edition.

Upon coming to the end of ROTJ and the celebration, I noticed something odd (or think I did) and I thought I would poll an opinion about it. As the final scene winds down and we see everyone (Lando) dancing and having a good time, there seems to be a chuckle RIGHT before the screen turns to credits. The chuckle that I heard seemed eerily like that of the Emperor, which made me wonder: did Lucas add it in as a sort of sequel-hint, but then go a different direction with the prequels? Was it an intentional addition, or simply some other noise that sounds like the Emperors laugh?

If you happen to have the tapes (and means to watch them), let me know what you think. I'm not try to start a conspiracy or anything! I'd just like a confirmation that I heard what I think I heard.

I own that set, and have never noticed that. I'll check mine.

Though I really doubt Lucas plans that far ahead. Case and point... Luke and Leia romantic subplot.

Clip on Youtube. It's from the SE, but I believe it has the noise you're talking about which I believe is just an ewok.

This is the same video that I'm talking about (with some apparent subtitles on it):

It may very well be an Ewok's odd yub-yub, but it still seems eeriely like the Emperors laugh to me. I do recall that the books point out the presence of the Emperor in the space where the second Death Star ws destoryed, but you just never know.

Yeah, that's an Ewok. Unless the Emperor inhaled some helium AND came back to life.
