Best Changes Made to the Original Star Wars Trilogy

I understand the hatred people have for George Lucas these days. He can't seem to produce anything without soaking it in poor writing and an overload of CGI. To make matters worse, he's spend over a decade messing around with one of the most beloved film series of all time! I won't even start on the prequel trilogy, but Lucas' edits and revisions of many memorable scenes in the original trilogy are, for the most part, unacceptable. This list compiles the best (or rather, the least horrible) changes made over the past number of years to the Original Star Wars Trilogy (1977-1983).

The Top Ten

1 Clearer picture
2 Better sound mixing
3 Hayden Christensen As The Force Ghost Of Anakin Skywalker
4 Boba Fett's voice
5 The title: 'A New Hope'
6 An updated Emperor in 'The Empire Strikes Back'
7 Revamping the Millennium Falcon in some shots
8 SOME better CGI effects
9 James Earl Jones is now credited
10 Improved Death Star explosions

The Contenders

11 Darth Vader's Noooo! at the end of 'Return of the Jedi'

Think about it. If it was included in the original version, nobody would even care. In fact, I think it makes the scene stronger. I know this is an unpopular opinion. - BKAllmighty
