    This is another of the crappy CGI versions from the 90’s. PLEASE release the ORIGINAL theatrical versions without the crappy changes’
  • “Do or do not, there is no try.”

    By Darth Vader Lord Of The Sith
    This was the very first Star Wars film I watched. I watched this movie when I was seven; right before Episode III came to theaters. The Story was awesome and the characters were cool! This has been my favorite movie ever since.

  • Ooh Daddy Issues!

    By Luna_Birdsong_KOTLC
    OKAY LUKE! BRING THE DADDY ISSUES AND THE IDINA IS AWESOME HOW CAN I TRUMP HER ISSUES AND THE TRUST ISSUES! But seriously, leave out the sulky Jedi issues I get too much of that. Hey it’s me again Idina Hunter. I hate snow. Let me repeat it I hAtE SnOw. Hoth was a nightmare and YES Luke Skywalker managed to give me some counseling there to ditch the lying (we will not discuss that anymore) but then Lando betrayed us (IM STILL WAITING IN THE RESTITUTION FOR THAT LANDO OLD PAL!!) and Vader and I kinda got into a fight because...never mind . I escaped by jumping down an air shaft with Luke...fracturing four ribs, earning a concussion, and the nice details of a few lightsaber marks. “Hey Idina? Can we skip the drama please?” “YES Luke but I—“ “No buts. Bedtime. Now.” “Okay.” Idina —> OUT
