Editorial Reviews

The high-energy, special-effects-laden conclusion to George Lucas's ambitious Star Wars trilogy delivers the final confrontation between Luke Skywalker (a more confident and mature Mark Hamill) and his nemesis-father, Darth Vader (David Prowse, voice of James Earl Jones), as the rebel alliance makes its last stand against the evil Empire. The film opens with an impressive set piece in the cave of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, who holds both Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) for his decadent pleasure until Skywalker comes to the rescue. The final battle pits an enormous armada of rebel ships against the rebuilt Death Star, the planet-killing weapon of the first film, while guerrilla forces battle Empire soldiers on the planet below with the help of a cuddly army of pint-sized, teddy-bear-like creatures known as Ewoks (Lucas's one concession to merchandising) and Skywalker confronts Vader and the emperor on the Deathstar. Director Richard Marquand invests the tale with plenty of humor and a vigorous sense of adventure without losing the seriousness of Skywalker's mission. The special edition adds, among other effects, more creatures and a bouncy song-and-dance number to the Jabba the Hut scenes, and an extended celebration that literally encompasses the galaxy at the film's jubilant conclusion. --Sean Axmaker

So after waiting 11 years or so, we finally get a re-release of the original version of Return of the Jedi in all it's unaltered glory. Just as fans have been dreaming about since the advent of DVD.

Well, um...I don't think any fan was dreaming about this particular release.

The original release version of Return of the Jedi (the only reason to buy this set as most all fans will already have one of the previous Special Edition releases) is relegated to bonus material on disc two. Ouch! But wait, it gets worse.

George Lucas, the champion of pristine presentation in the theatre and at home has released the film that made him a legend in the state of the art of technology circa 1993.

Yes, that's right. This transfer is from the laserdisc release of '93. Even worse the film is not anamorphic like just about every other modern day DVD. What does that mean? Well a non-anamorphic DVD has a low visual clarity and the image won't fill a widescreen TV. To make a movie anamorphic takes very little time and money. That Jedi is not anamorphic shows a disregard for the film that is disturbing.

Star Wars fans expect these landmark films to be treated just like many other films (Vertigo, Gone with the Wind, Citizen Kane, Snow White, etc.) that have gotten detailed restorations that cleaned up dirt, grime and audio ticks and presented the films in today's state of the art. This is the release most fans were dreaming of. A release that showed the film some modicrum of respect.

George, the fan base you have worked so hard to woo over the years is fed up with your shoddy treatment of these films.

This could very easily be an ecstatic 5-star review. The original, unaltered Star Wars trilogy, finally on DVD with no droid & alien cartoon antics, no Hayden Christensen's face on Sebastian Shaw's body, no videogame-quality Jabba the Hutt, the original Academy Award-winning special effects, the music we remember... This should be a red-letter DVD release for Star Wars fans. Sadly, it is not.

Here's why you should boycott this release:

1. The picture & sound are intentionally presented in mediocre quality. These DVD's are transferred from the exact same videotape used to create the laserdisc release in 1993. That means a non-anamorphic, muddy, letterboxed picture that will have to be zoomed in to fill widescreen TVs or computer monitors. Lucasfilm refuses to fulfill the basic minimum standards of a current DVD release and make a new transfer. The quality of this DVD presentation will not live up to that of such timeless classics as Caddyshack II & Ishtar.

2. It's overpriced. If Lucasfilm is only willing to toss out these beloved films in this shoddy version, and they are unwilling to spend any time or money at all on their release, that is their right. They should charge accordingly. As bootleg-quality laserdisc transfers, these DVD's should sell for $5-$10, tops. Incredibly, Lucasfilm is charging $90 retail for these three movies! That's almost twice the cost of the (still available) box set with the exact same Special Edition discs!

They're trying to justify the cost by bundling the unaltered movies (the only reason to buy this version) with the Special Edition movies, but they must know it's a sham. Anybody who is willing to pay $90 ($60 @ Amazon) for the Special Edition DVD's has already bought the existing box sets.

After the events of "Empire Strikes Back", it seems that Han Solo (Harrison Ford) has been sent to Luke's former home known as Tatoonie where infamous space gangster who is a slug-like creature named Jabba The Hutt has him placed in freezing. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamil) with Leia (Carrie Fisher), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), C-3PO (Voiced by Anthony Daniels) and R2-D2 (Kenny Baker) rescue Han as Darth Vader (Voiced by James Earl Jones and played by David Prowse)is reconstructing the Death Star to a new level and his master The Emperor (Ian McDairmad) wants to seduce Luke to the dark side of the force. The gang head off to the planet Endor where they befriend a tribe of teddy bear-like humanoids called Ewoks where they help them fight against the empire but can Luke confront his father and learn other secrets of his past?

A brilliant final installment of the electrifying Star Wars saga and it went out with a bang on this one. Directed by Richard Marquand (The original director was going to be David Lynch) and written by Lawrence Kasdan and George Lucas with a story from Lucas, this one has been considered the weakest of the classic SW trilogy and i don't see how. Sure the Ewoks went there to be cute and cuddly but are quite likable critters they are, i love how it introduces Jabba The Hutt which is a fan favorite and how it brings back cool characters like Yoda (Voiced by Frank Oz), Lando (Billy Dee Williams) and more as it's a visual effects feast for the soul and eyes that brings the galactic civil war to an end and who can't resist Leia in that bikini? Yowser.

This 2-Disc DVD contains the same audio commentary from the boxset on the remastered 2004 special edition and finally the unaltered theatrical cut of ROTJ with no changes and the original sequences as intended for the theatrical release. Kudos to Lucas for listening to his fans for having the un-special editions on DVD.
