It’s billed as “The Fastest and Funniest LEGO Star Wars story ever told…The Prequel!” and it shows that when you have access to ALL the Lego sets, you can make a pretty bitchin’ Lego toon .

May 4th is celebrated around the galaxy as Star Wars Day not because it’s when the original STAR WARS opened (that would be May 25, 1977) but because it’s a pun on “May the Fourth Be With You.” It is celebrated by gradually replacing humans with droids and disappointing expectations.

Lucasfilms got in on the celebration by revealing details of the STAR WARS 9-disc Blu-ray release, which was announced today on starwars.com (Site is loading slowly.) According to Rob Bricken, this massive set STILL won’t include the ORIGINAL trilogies — you know the badass ’70s one where Han shot first and all? We can’t believe we passed up buying the original video tapes thinking “Those will never go away!”

A note on the above Lego film: notice how fast AOTC gets recapped? That’s because there was no story!

    more “Special Edition” version of the movies? Ughhhh

  2. Andrew Farago says:

    There’s a fairly recent six-disc DVD release that includes the original, unaltered movies on three discs, and the Special Edition versions on the other three. That’s probably still readily available on Amazon, or at any decent used DVD shop.

  3. [explicative] George Lucas. The man lost his soul in film making long ago. In particular when he split with his first wife, who was one of the only people to win an Oscar for Star Wars and brought all the heart into the films. There’s an interesting article I read explaining what she brought to the films and what they lost when they split up after Jedi.

    There’s been a long running theory that Lucas can’t release the originals without giving her money. The DVDs has the loophole that they were an extra disk. Though it seems that Georgie boy doesn’t even want to bother with his ex-wife’s version of the film and only wants his CGI saturated and poorly edited films to be the only Star Wars to exist. It’s pretty disgusting if you know that bit of back story. Not only is Lucas trying to rid the world of the version many fans love, he’s also trying to erase his wife’s work in it.

    Any idea which one it is? They are sooo many dvd versions of the OT out there….
