The Top Five Worst Changes to ‘Star Wars’ Since Its Original Release
In the tradition of ScreenCrush series like You Think You Know Movies and You Think You Know TV comes a new YouTube series: Top Five! Every two weeks (or so; we’ve got a lot of other stuff going on), ScreenCrush editor and critic Matt Singer will count down a particular topic from the world of movies (and probably write these introductory posts in the third person).
On the new episode Top Five, in honor the 20th anniversary of the release of the Star Wars Special Editions, we’re ranking the worst changes made to the original saga since its first release in 1977. From those Special Editions up through the 2011 release of the Star Wars Blu-ray, George Lucas and Lucasfilm have constantly tinkered with their signature creations, sometimes to the consternation of fans who preferred the movies exactly as they were. Some of Lucas’ changes actually made real improvements, but some of them were pretty bad, and its those alterations that are the subject of today’s video.
Top Five is a ScreenCrush original series that ranks all kinds of cool stuff from the world of movies. This is our 23rd episode, so check out some of our past episodes below. Plus, we want your feedback, so be sure to let us know what Top Fives you want to see in future episodes! And don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel below to catch all our future episodes. Until next time, remember: the music in the Star Wars universe is called jizz. It really is.
