I love Star Wars.
I bet that statement above is news to no one. Well, I’ve been celebrating my fandom of late with my weekly This Week In Star Wars blog post, a new Boba Fett themed Hollywood Pitch and a little TubeCast called the Kessel Run. You can see one of those at the bottom of this post.
Thats still not enough. So this week, as a part of the main show will we be including a new segment called The Kessel Rundown, where we focus some of the latest Star Wars related news stories.
And thats still not enough! So heres the deal. I’m planning to re-watch the original movies and write a piece on each. When I say original, I mean original. I have the original versions of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and The Return Of The Jedi on DVD, pre-special editions. The Han Shot First Editions if you like, and they are the versions I will be viewing.
You know how people are always saying, “I wish they’d just release the original versions on BluRay” and “George Lucas ruined my childhood” and other such stoopid fings? Well I plan to watch the original and make a list of all the improvements I would like to see. I won’t be bitching about the Special Editions, but I will be recalling the alterations and evaluating whether a version of those changes has a place in the definitive Star Wars I have in mind. I can tell you now, its not the original versions and it aint the Special Editions. My Hero Cut of Star Wars is somewhere in between.
So, stay tuned for the first part of three coming soon…
