Edited by Kirk, or "Hal 9000" on the originaltrilogy.com forums.
Film has been trimmed and reworked to improve overall quality, and help the story function without altering any crucial elements. All in a all, a somewhat conservative Star Wars fan edit.
Here is a partial list of the changes I can remember off the top of my head:
- Used a new opening crawl (Thanks to Rebel11_38)
- Slightly trimmed the opening space sequence
- Removed the elevator sequence completely, taking the squeaky super battle droid voices with it
- Replaced the lightsaber sound effect clearly lifted straight from ESB that always bothered me
- Snipped the stairwell crushing Obi-Wan's legs
- On the flagship, trimmed Grevious's ranting
- Removed Jar Jar's one line (Thanks to Adigitalman)
- Removed the balcony scene with Padme and Anakin
- Removed the scene with Yoda and Anakin discussing his dream
- Reinstated the three 'Seeds of Rebellion' deleted scenes
- Boga "barks" one too many times
- During the Mace vs. Palpy duel, cut some of the flips and jumps
- Removed the cutaway shot of Yoda during the 'Vader dubbing' scene
- Inserted some dialogue for Qui-Gon by Liam Neeson during the rotating shot of Yoda meditating
- Removed the line about Padme loosing the will to live
- And a few new surprises
Picture quality is as good as possible for a single-layer DVD, and looks great. (2.0 Stereo sound)
