    George Lucas’ plans for the Star Wars Extra Special Edition

    [] Add CGI Wampa dance number to Empire
    [] Replace storm trooper blasters with walkie talkies
    [] Add a few more “explosion rings” to exploding death star
    [] More ewoks, more ewoks, more ewoks
    [] Insert the Jar Jar new scenes into Ep IV, Ep V, and Ep VI
    [] Make it so Han doesn’t shoot at all, just have Greedo’s own shot ricochet and kill him
    [] More “ooo bah, ooo bah” droids at the end of Ep III
    [] Add a few more sweet lightsaber battles On second thought, I’ll just add 5 minutes to that Wampa dance number
