Cha Cha Cha Cha Changes!

@starwars #digitalyoda #bluray

So Lucas will always be updating the Star Wars films This should not be a surprise anymore. I'll be surprised not to see a few changes in the upcoming 3D Phantom Menace conversion.

So the biggest change for the upcoming Blu ray release is the already discussed (they showed us on the Revenge of the Sith Extras back in 2005) changing of the crud Yoda puppet in The Phantom Menace into a CG version to match up with the other prequels. This makes sense. There's no denying that the original puppet was the most cringe worthy thing since Jake Loyd's acting ability. I welcome this change, however it still doesn't look as good as the puppet Yoda from Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi (I'm probably just too nostalgic).

They actually tested to see if they could do a digital/lightsaber welding yoda for Attack of the Clones by replacing the puppet in Phantom menace for a digital version back in the early 00's.

Have a look for yourself below.
