Star Wars has gone through a number of re-evaluations recently, with people saying that the sequel trilogy and prequel trilogy don’t deserve their bad rap. Fans have become more forgiving of George Lucas lately, but some of his crafting still rubs fans in the wrong direction.
What was the change in Return of the Jedi?
In the original 1983 version of the film, after Luke refused to join the Emperor and join the dark side, the Emperor zaps Luke with a bolt of lightning to kill him. Luke screams in pain and asks his father to help him, and Darth Vader seems unmoved at first.
After staring at Luke for a moment without saying anything, he picks up the Kaiser, carries him to a shaft and drops him. Vader, struck by lightning, dies soon after.
In the late 1990s, when Lucas was preparing his prequel trilogy, he decided to make changes to his original trilogy, partly because he wanted to test digital effects, partly because the films never really suited him.
The changes first appeared in the 1997 theatrical editions, but what amazed fans was that the films changed every time they were released in a new format.
When the films were released on Blu-Ray in 2011, the Emperor’s death played out differently. This time, when Vader looks at Luke, he says “no”. Then he picks up the emperor and yells “No!” As he carries him to the shaft. The fans protested, saying this would diminish the power of the moment.
The “no” sounded like it was from that moment Revenge of the Sith when the newly risen Darth Vader hears from the emperor that he has killed his wife Padme. Vader screams no in fear.

The general complaint about the added “no” is that it seems out of character for Vader, whom fans consider the ultimate villain. Yes, it was redeemed in the end, but Vader shouting “No” at least found the fans unnecessary. However, one Reddit thread tries to justify this.
A topic starter writes: “My Star Wars Hot Take: Vader Screams” Noooo! “If he saves and kills Luke, the Emperor won’t take anything from the scene and frankly, it is a good rhyme for his fall to the Dark Side when he attacked Mace Windu. ”
This refers to the scene from Revenge of the Sith. ”
However, one fan wrote that the lack of dialogue makes the scene work: “I think the fact that we didn’t need him to understand what he was thinking is why you have to leave him out. Just getting Vader’s thoughts across with his mask is good filmmaking. ”
Another fan said, “It’s not something that” ruins “the scene for me and the massive outrage over it is a bit silly, still a pretty good scene, but I really, really prefer the original version. That was a very unnecessary decision, without that NO you could get everything you needed from the scene. ”
Fans forgive George Lucas
Although the various changes in the Special Edition, including the famous Maclunkey addition, continue to confuse fans, the vitriol directed to Lucas for this and the prequel trilogy seems to have subsided.
Now fans have returned to the idea of thanking Lucas for creating Star Wars and even criticizing Disney for rejecting his proposed sequel.
Another recent Reddit thread posted a picture of Lucas looking down in approval at Baby Yoda, which was a sensation The Mandalorians. Lucas wasn’t directly involved in this show, but fans see the picture as a representation of Lucas’ redemption.
“I kind of see this picture as a captured moment from George’s journey that comes back to a happy place. After writing a revolutionary story in his youth and basking in the glory, he was happy. But after returning years later to continue building his universe, he was severely ridiculed and abused – forcing his hand to give up his baby and presumably withdraw. But after a more negative reaction to the further installments (he was probably glad not to be involved), George is warmly invited by (current producers) to survey the next chapter of his universe. ”
