I'm sure most of this has been posted elsewhere, but SW.com just updated recently, so thought I'd send a link.

Deleted Scenes will include Yoda arriving at Dagobah.

Thanks for the link! I really wished they edited some of the deleted scenes back into the movie. I'm getting mine from wallmart, maybe the extra disc will have those deleted scenes that were missing from the original trilogy set?

Doubt it. From what I hear the extra disc is the exclusive video Walmart played during their "Attack of the Clones" promotion (notice that a picture of EPII Anakin is fgiured prominently on the package). Hence it's a Walmart exclusive DVD.

Still, unless there is a better in-store premium offered elsewhere, I'm getting my EPIII DVD from Walmart.

I cannot understand- for the life of me -WHY, WHY, WHY Uncle George will not do this!

You'd think after PJ and NEw Line did SO WELL (HA!LOL!) w/LOTR and the Extended Editions, that a Star Wars Extended Edition would be a no brainer! Most especially since he FILMED THE SCENES and EDITED THEM for the DVD....Just put out a second edition and we will buy it! Come on....Even if YOU wouldn't want it, you KNOW someone who would!

He has to get all these copies out now before the holidays and the format change. Then he will make a HD versions with the sceens added in so that you have to go out and buy that as well.


Yes he is as bad as Geene Simmons,

He's already put deleted scene's back into at least three of the Star Wars movies that weren't shown theatrically. Not to mention all the newer added scenes for the OT.

Yoda arriving on Dagobah scene will be a cool one. So far, that makes two deleted scenes for the DVD, right? The one with Mon Mothma and Bail Organa in a secret meeting being the second.

My supplier told me I should have the DVD the week of the 17th of Oct. Man I can't wait.

Yeah, but they are on the second DVD...we're saying why does't he integrate them into an Extended Edition like PJ did with LOTR!
All the new Trilogy DVD's had he deleted (or unsed) scenes on a second disc!

No, I'm saying he has already added deleted scenes to the actual movie. At least two deleted scenes were added to ANH alone.

I dont think adding deleted scenes is always that great. The editor/director didnt leave them out for nothing. Sometimes they do complement a movie but most of the time they dont. For example, the giving of the items in Lothlorien was a great benefit. But some scenes make no sense at all, like the Mouth of Sauron piece (yes is was a great piece, but honestly....disappearing horses and corpses??) in ROTK. There's nothing in the Star Wars movies that needs to be added. They were great already. Why try to fix something when its not broke? I can understand when a movie is flawed or has been brought out flawed, but otherwise its no good.

Viking28: D'oh! Sorry B!

LoL, well no harm done. I'll retype my message...or what I can remember of it anyway lol!

I agree B. It has to serve the movie and not thrown in for S&G's. Some of the EPI Podrace "lap 2" additions could have been left deleted. Same with the Luke and Biggs chat before flying off to stop the Death Star scene in ANH.

There are some screen grabs of the deleted Yoda arrival on Dagobah scene over at Millennium Falcon (http://www.millenniumfalcon.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=5914&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=50) also. The Shaak Ti death scene should be pretty cool too.

Most of the 'new' scenes in the OT were actually ..NEW.
The Jabba Scene and the Biggs scene (Which he ONly added one of three Biggs scenes in the film) were the only previously filmed scenes. He filmed new scenes for the other additions.....They completley bastardized the Greedo/Han moment....Yuck, Ugh, Spit.


Yes, Yes, Yes....SOme scenes are worthless....But that is why you have an 'EXTENDED EDITION'....is ADDITION to the original. FOr the insane, passionate, hardcore, completist, nutcase, serious, no-nonsense fans. That want every single piece of footage available.
He went back and added film score and effects to them. They must not be bantha turds if they bothered doing that! :wacky

I HATED the additions to the Ep. I DVD, particularly the new podrace introductions. The lap 2 sequence was fine, but I could have done without the new beginning. I really don't want any sequences added to the Ep. III DVD.

Stuff like the Jango jetpack firing in Ep. II that they didn't have time to complete for the theatrical version is a nice addition, but the Ep. I additions were mostly bad, IMO.

A separate extended release would be the best way to go. LOTR is different for me, because the things cut out were mostly in the book. I therefore don't even watch the theatrical cuts anymore. PJ only added things back that were originally in Tolkien's work to begin with.

Whoa! Dejavu. I swear I already mentioned that in a previous post. ;)

el: As much as I like EPI, I have to agree. Personally, I didn't mind the added few seconds to the beginning of the Podrace. IMO, the whole podrace could have used more of John Williams score though.

Actually, this is what you said...and I said he only put in a couple of 'deleted' scenes. Most of them were newly filmed.
What deleted scenes did he put back into 3 films? ....none of the floppy hat Luke made into the re-releases in '97...
None of the Wampa's Nest under Echo base stuff made it into the Empire Re-release...
What old/deleted scenes made into 3 films? In ANH we got that cruddy old Jabba Scene and the Luke Biggs Reunion. I know there was something else...what was it?

I actually hated many parts of Ep. 1. the added scenes were no worst then the cheese that was in the movie before they were added.
Scenes in movies can be edited out for reasons other then the fact they throw off the story. Reading the article over at Hyperspace, Shaak Ti's death scene in the beginning was edited out because of pace and the lack of impact of General Grievous appearing in the scene. When they re-shot her death in the temple, it made no sense because Shaak Ti would've been meditating while the temple was being assaulted by Clone troopers. In my opinion, the Yoda arriving on Dagobah, and the Mon Mothma Rebellion scene I think should've been added back in, I don't think they throw the movie's story off but enhance it. And maybe a newly filmed scene showing Shaak Ti dying in the temple assault should've be filmed.

I thought of another possible extra on the Wallmart DVD edition, maybe it has the Star Wars TV shows that were shown on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet this past Summer?

In response to screamingmetal's comment:

I then pointed out that:

You then seemed confused when you posted:


Yeah, but they are on the second DVD...we're saying why does't he integrate them into an Extended Edition like PJ did with LOTR!
All the new Trilogy DVD's had he deleted (or unsed) scenes on a second disc!

So, I clarified here:

You then posted what I had already said above:

I understand though. It's not easy remembering every post you've made. The fact still remains that deleted scenes have been added back into the saga; and, completely new, additional, scenes were put into the OT. Since the deleted and newer/additional scenes weren't shown theatrically (originally anyway) the versions represented on DVD are essentially "Extended Versions." ...end exhale!

Can you feel that! Take care now, bye bye then. ;)

09-27-2005, 06:35 PM
....Ok....Bravo Ace.
Now, I may not have been stating my rhetorical question clearly enough. (Which initially had nothing to do with anything you said.)

I do not understand why Lucas released (and is in the process of releasing) the new trilogy on DVD with the deleted scenes on a separate dvd rather than having two different releases (ala: PJ and New Line Cinema) one theatrical release and one 'Extended Release' of each film - thus capitalizing on the insatiable desire to see and own as much footage as possible and thus making that wallet of his thicker!
...Especially since he took the time and care to go back and 'finish' the scenes with the addition of effects and scoring. :peace

I know Viking.. :banghead That Yoda scene was a big scene and one he shouldn't have left out. I always pictured at the end of the film just after
Obi-Wan leaves luke. All of the Jedi showed up behind him in (Ghost-form).
Before it turns to the end scene. It would have been great to have seen Qui-gon again. But with the talk Obi-wan had with Yoda it wouldn't have worked I surpose. :sick

The Press junket today said something about a great Best Buy exclusive. They wouldn't specify what is 'great' though...have to wait and see. Be interesting to know what all is coming...shouldn't be too long before details are released I'd think.

10-22-2005, 07:35 AM
I am on the side that the additional scenes should be integrated into the movie. George did this for Phantom Menace, why not be consistent? There are many scenes that I know about that did not make the theatrical release. Too numerous to mention, but just look at all the Hasbro figures that we don't even see, like Mon Mothma. And, when I read the ROTS Comic Book, I thought we were going to see Qui-Gon Jinn in Spirit Form, big disappoinment for me. Agree we need to see Shaak Ti buying it and Yoda at Degobah.

TURINS~BANE
10-22-2005, 08:34 AM
If Qui-gon in spirit-form and Yoda at Dagoba where in the theatrical release, that would have been perfection for me. Those two were the scenes I was most looking forward to.

The "big extra" at Best Buy is just an ugly lithograph for RZ members:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=pcmcat73400050000&type=category

Wal-Mart has an exclusive bonus disc, that features what appears to be just a "clip retrospective." I'll pass on that as well for the $5 extra that they will surely charge:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4242488

The only SW bonus DVD (apart from the ones already included with the films) that has been worthwhile for me personally is the one that came with the Ep. III soundtrack.

Well that sucks,I was hoping that one of the two would be worth getting,but it sounds like maybe just getting the regular version may be the way to go.Thanks for the info.

So why exactly did Obi Wan not step in and save Shaak Ti? :confused:

when you see the deleted scene, you'll see grevious kills her very quickly.
did anyone notice grevious used a saber that looks exactly like obi-wan's saber. i guess that design isn't very unique.

anyone else disapointed with the extras on disc 2? i think they didn't put as much of an effort into it as they did with the previous two films. i guess they're saving stuff for their next release.

I just watched the special Wallmart disk and it's really just a very short abridged version of the whole Star Wars saga, with the omission of ROTS. Nothing amazing.
It's hosted by C-3PO and R2, and narrated by Anthony Daniels.
It has short scenes showing C-3PO and R2 talking to the camera and to each other between narrated segments of the moves. It's all in Pan & Scan, and there are no audio options or scene selection, just selection between the two Prequel movies, or the Original Trilogy.

One thing to note, is that much of the OT segments are Pre-Special Addition versions. They have the old Emperor in ESB, Vader with eyebrows, and a non-Hayden Ghost Anakin in ROTJ. The Special Addition version of the X-Wing fly-by in ANH is there, and the old end song in ROTJ is there too, but with celebration end scenes from the Special Addition release of ROTJ.
It was weird watching the old scenes on DVD, in fact I think this is the first time they've ever been seen on DVD.
Makes me wish George would release the original versions on DVD even more.
