Gamesradar.com has a great article about 20 changes George Lucas made to the Star Wars movies over the years. There is probably a couple in there you weren't aware of. Below is one of my favourites.

The matte paintings that made up a lot of the backgrounds in the original trilogy were replaced in the Special Editions with new, more realistic computer generated backgrounds.

Thank you for reading,
