Bring me the head of George Lucas

As the DVD release of the original Star Wars trilogy draws closer some disturbing evidence of additional changes to the movies has emerged. I was resigned to the fact that it was going to be the ‘Special Editions’ rather than the original release but now it seems George has gone even further. If you go here and scroll down you’ll find an image from Return of the Jedi. This makes some of the tales of changes that I’d written off as fan-boy rumors seem very possible. Why can’t Lucas just leave it alone? The movies were fine the first time around.
