KirbyPink's Editng of Return of the Jedi

Another week, another video! I'll just copy off the description because I'm too damn lazy to write anything original.


The original ending of Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi was going to be bittersweet, mute and emotional. It was originally going to involve Lando Calrissian's death on the Death Star and Han Solo's death midway through the film. The original ending would also have the final scene of Luke staring at a sun-set in a similar manner to A New Hope's famous binary sunset scene. Most of these elements were cut and changed to make a lighter, up-beat and overall "Disney" atmosphere that is the final movie.

This RE-EDIT that I have made changes the ending of Episode VI to be more of the original out-line that Gary Kurtz wrote. It's not perfect and in no-way does it do justice to the original ending of Return of the Jedi. However, it does cut-out some useless elements such as Ewoks and changes the final scene so that the film ends with Luke observing the ceremonial death of his father. Finally, Lando dies just moments before the Death Star blows up.

I know most people won't like this edit. But nobody forces you to watch this. If you don't like it, then go watch something else.
