Did they really not include the Theatrical Trailers for any of these films on here? I like having the films on Blu, but I was already somewhat let down by them not including the Star Wars: Empire of Dreams A&E documentary from the DVD trilogy. So are the trailers nowhere on the Blus?

The clone wars on cartoon net starts a 4 episode arc tonite that will end the season.

Darth Maul makes his comeback in it....should be interesting to see how they put him back together again.

It is supposedly really him, which is utterly absurd even in the Star Wars universe. That said...I'm game and will tune in! lol

Nope. Not there, unfortunately.

Not really that absurd, especially since he now reportedly

.

If you think about it, both Darth Vader and General Grievous both survived near-death experiences and were brought "back" with some kind of life-sustaining technology.

Hey fellas, I thought I'd give you guys something to read. I think it'd make for some good conversation:

He was literally cut in two though, mechanical legs are one thing but....

He'd need some serious repairs!

Haaahahahhahahahahhahaahahahahahahahaha.

no, not even close. both detail AND color are crazy off in these shots. I have yet to see anything beat the Bluray versions in picture quality.

Same for me, watching the 9-disc set is making me feel like i'm watching it for the first time all over again. I'm noticing so many things i never did before.

If you watch A New Hope in the desert scene when R2 is creeping along alone just before he gets attacked by the Jawas, you can see a bunch of green moss on rocks behind him - the detail is spectacular! I watched one of my old original VHS copies to compare and see if you can see the moss, and it's just a slight blur, would have never been noticed without the bluray restoration.

So many other random texture details have stuck out and surprised me, theres apparently a Jabba the hut mural on the sail barge in return of the jedi that i've never seen before - it was always too dark and blurred out before.

I have no complaints on picture quality anywhere on the blurays.

Yeah? of course i remember that. Great scene. What's your point? That wasn't in the original script, Han Solo was suppose to say "I love you too", but Harrison knew that was lame, so he came up with the "i know". He went over it with Kirchner and he loved it and shot it that way. Lucas came by the set soon after that to fight with Kurtz and Kirchner showed him the daily for the carbon chamber scene and he loved it - so they kept it.

Halfway through Empire Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher were butting heads a lot and they were both actually suggesting a lot of script changes to Irvin on the spot. And they actually were having fights between scenes because she was mad that Irvin and Ford were meeting without the rest of the cast to make changes.

During the carbon freezing chamber scene, the "i love you - i know" and the kissing scene, they were actually at odds and not on good terms for the moment. but they soon later resolved their conflict... it sure was still a good scene none-the-less.
