Apparently George Lucas has made some “improvements” to the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailer.

Star Wars: Episode VII Trailer – George Lucas’ Special Edition


The past hour the Internet has been all abuzz with news that George Lucas has sold Lucasfilm, Industrial Light & Magic, Skywalker Sound, and the rights to the expanded Star Wars universe to Disney for $4.05 billion (half in cash and half in 40 million shares of Disney). Kathleen Kennedy, current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will take over as President of the company and serve as executive producer for Star Wars: Episode VII which is tentatively scheduled for a 2015 release date. I’ve decided to be cautiously optimistic, but someone may want to give teh ‘monkey a hug as he’s currently crawled up in a ball under his desk muttering obscenities and planning a way to kill everyone involved.

It seems George Lucas isn’t content to only “improve” his movies by adding Darth Vader’s “Nooooooooo!” into the end of Return of the Jedi. The folks at CineWeekly give us a taste of what a few other classic movies would be like with similar improvements.
