I wish I was alive when the original cuts of Star Wars existed because all I have ever known is the special editions and remasters. I think that each new version adds more and more unnecessary junk and it’s not a good luck. Star Wars in 4K does look damn good though.
FACT: Originally in the asteroid scene, one of the asteroids was actually a shoe. The rumor is that George Lucas asked the visual effects people to redo the scene so many times that they got annoyed and one of them threw in his or her shoe. Later remastered versions have corrected this.
We want the shoe! We want the shoe! We want the shoe!
