George Lucas has made several, shall we say—controversial changes to the original Star Wars trilogy over the years. And by “several” we mean “a lot”.
While many of these changes are well known, an entire generation of fans has been unable to watch these movies in their pure, original form.
Fortunately, YouTuber Marcelo Zuniga has preserved the film’s history by extensively cataloging those changes in the following videos. They show the original and the various versions that have been released since along with explanatory notes.
See the videos after the break.
