A “New” New Hope: Film Preservation and the Problem with ‘Star Wars’

In an episode of The Big Bang Theory (a sitcom lampooning modern “geek” culture with varying degrees of success), physicist Dr. Sheldon Cooper refuses to watch the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series before the Clone Wars movie. He explains, “I prefer to let George Lucas disappoint me in the order he intended.” Though likely unintentional, this offhanded remark reveals the central dilemma of the Star Warsfandom.  Does the franchise “belong” to Lucas or does it “belong” to the public, as an artifact of cultural history? With the 2011 release of the 6-part Star Wars saga on Blu-ray came the announcement that the version of the trilogy available in the set would not be the original theatrical print, but the 1997 “Special Edition” versions of A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, which include additional scenes and updated technology. Many fans of the franchise see this decision—coupled with the critical backlash stemming the threeStar Wars prequels—as evidence of George Lucas’ transformation from an innovative filmmaker, into a profit-seeking businessman.

I definitely come down on the same side of the issue as this article. There’s a certain charm to the original prints of the trilogy (or as my classmates have referred to the “unmolested” versions) that isn’t present in remastered Special Edition. 

I mean, I know that the effects in the original trilogy are really cheesy, but the puppets and crappy space ships just add to the flavour of the films. Also, even in the special edition there’s only so much they can do to clean the effects up, and it’s arguably more distracting to go from a streamlined, realistic distance shot of the tauntaun to a close where it’s clearly a puppet. When you know it’s a crappy puppet from the start you don’t have any problems with it.
