George Lucas can't stop, won't stop.

When Lucasfilm announced that they'd be releasing a new Star Wars blu ray set there was a lot of web speculation about which version of the original trilogy would be included, the original trilogy of the 1997 special editions. Turns out what we're really getting is the 2011 blu ray editions because he can't stop tinkering with these movies. take it away io9.

George Lucas is not satisfied with turning the puppet Yoda in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace into a CG creation. Or just fixing some of the wonky lightsabre effects in the original trilogy. He's going a bit further.

Most of the changes are stupid. Like digitally enhancing the blinking of the ewoks (I shit you not), or having R2D2 hide behind a rock.

So far all the changes I've seen are so minor I have no idea why he's doing them. He's just trolling the net nerds right? I mean there's no way he's up all night obsessing over how the Ewok's blinking looks fake. He's either a dick or clinically insane, at this point I don't think there's a middle ground.

Our friends at ToplessRobot have video for a lot of the changes.
