Now Vader Screams "NOOOOOOO!!!" Once Every Five Hours or So

August 31, 2011


George Lucas's Original Vision of Star Wars continues to evade the writer/director/producer/action figure profiteer, but with each new release of his epic he comes ever closer to at last capturing that elusive, CGI white whale he's always intended. We've already seen that the updated Blu-ray release of the Star Wars saga will include a new, computer-generated Yoda to match the hollow lifelessness of the rest of the prequel trilogy, and now we're starting to hear about some other tinkering that bored ol' George has been doing in the Skywalker garage. Among the additional changes to the films: you know how Darth Vader ridiculously screamed "NOOOOOO!!!" at the end of Revenge of the Sith? Well, now that's Vader's catchphrase, and George Lucas is hoping the studio audience will erupt when they hear it shouted a couple more times at the end of Return of the Jedi:

Great callback, Darth! I've always thought the original trilogy should be bookended by negative pouting.

I should note, though, the video isn't officially from the Blu-ray, but the audio reportedly is an actual leak that someone from the internet has graciously synced it up to where it (doesn't) belong in the film.

Another change? Now Obi-Wan sounds like more of an asshole when he scares off the Tusken raiders!

Or, if that embed doesn't work:

So naturalistic. That has bothered me for so long, that it didn't sound as crazy as that. Now pretty much the only offensive element of the series is how the Ewoks don't have CGI eyelids. Oh, hey, they do now! That should do us until the 3-D release updates, then. Well done, George. Let your weary head rest upon your neck girth.
