College Humor has released a new video featuring a brand new opening crawl to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope that better fits the heavily edited Special Editions of the original trilogy.
If you’re a Star Wars fan none too happy with the bastardization of the original trilogy by Lucas in the special editions, you need to do yourself a favor and check out this video. Similar to the now famous 70-minute The Phantom Menace review, the video sums up everything wrong with the countless unnecessary edits shoved into the original films in order to make them more “modern” or worse still in order to make them fit better into the new, far inferior trilogy. Some callouts include the insertion of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, all the pointless new CGI and the brand new musical soundtrack in Jabba’s Palace.
Hit the jump for hilarity to ensue.
