emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (sci-fi)
I am eagerly anticipating the release of Star Wars the Complete Saga on Blu-Ray on Friday? (What is with these releases on Friday lately? Feels like it is something that just started this year.) And well, with the news that there were some new tweaks to the series, it got me thinking about what I would like to see fixed and at the moment I can only really think of one jarring scene.

And that would be the re-included scene of Han Solo and Jabba in A New Hope. Of course when it was filmed in the 70s Jabba was not yet a slug and as a result there is that awkward moment where they have Han unevenly walking around Jabba by stepping on his tail. It's weird. I always thought they should go ahead and reshoot it from wider angles and maybe have a stand-in for Han Solo and intersplice with the closeups they had, but it wasn't practical.

Then came Tron: Legacy and Jeff Bridges playing his younger self, that came out pretty well. Not perfect and there was a little of the uncanny valley effect but I think it would be an interesting technique to use to fix my problem with the scene. Being able to bring back Harrison Ford to play the same role, and to redo the scene with this time keeping in mind Jabba's form, and making it a much smoother moment would be so cool.

P.S. Amazon has the set for $79. SO TEMPTING.

P.P.S. Have you seen this skit of Harrison Ford on Jimmy Kimmel? Loved it!
