George Lucas to start ‘improving’ other directors’ films

After the controversial edits made to the Blu-ray release of the Star Wars Saga, George Lucas has announced that he has plans to make some significant improvements not only to his other films American Graffiti and THX-1138, but also to the works of other directors.

“After I finally made the changes necessary to the Star Wars films to really tell the story the way I always intended, I started looking back on some of the other movies I’ve made,” Lucas wrote on his personal blog. “After making some sweeping special effect changes to American Graffiti and THX-1138, I started looking at some of the other films in my library. And not just my movies, but my friends’ movies and even movies from people I didn’t really know.”

Lucas explained that he wasn’t happy with Steven Spielberg’s decision to go back on the changes made to the Indiana Jones films, so he decided to redo them - and some more. In addition, Lucas decided to recut the first two Godfather movies to more closely resemble the “level of quality seen in The Godfather, Part III”.

Other changes he’s completed include adding one final fight sequence to the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day where the molten T-1000 and the melting T-800 battle it out in the molten pit; editing the ending of Avatar so that the humans win; re-shooting the end of Titanic so that as the Heart of the Ocean is shown landing on the deck of the sunken Titanic as an approving ghost of Leonardo DiCaprio looks on; and changing the ending of Mean Girls to show Lindsay Lohan’s character getting hit by a speeding VW Beetle. When reached for comment, the film’s director Mark Waters said, “Wait, can he do that?”

Each of these films, and future releases, will be available under LucasFilms new “Special Editions” showcase starting around the middle of next year.
