George Lucas's latest changes to the Star Wars series may have fans crying that the Blu-Ray release is a trap.

The Yoda puppet is being replaced in all scenes, including the original series, with a CGI version. And Darth Vader now screams "NOOO!!!" when Emperor Palapatine is shocking Luke.  (Source: YouTube)

A recent South Park episode accused George Lucas of "raping" Indiana Jones and other classics.  (Source: South Park Studios/Comedy Central)

In 1988 George Lucas gave an impassioned speech that changing works for profit was barbarism. Today he says he only wants to keep 25 to 30 percent of the original theatrical content in the original Star Wars films.  (Source: The AV Club)

If you watch alot of the behind the scenes stuff, you soon realise that most of the people that worked on the original trilogy made the films in SPITE of George. The man didn't even direct most of them, Beardy was responsible for the setting and that's about it, his "vision" when it comes to filmmaking is subpar at best. The responsibility for the quality of the first three rest solely on those who helped him make it (such as the directors, whose names currently escape me).

He deserves credit for crafting an amazing universe, but he receives far too much undeserved credit for the quality of the films.
