Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Cuts and Additions:
- Luke & Leia’s incestuous smooch has been removed. Sorry, but it has crawled up my last nerve to watch this shot ever since 1983 revealed their true relationship.
- OT line “You’re lucky you don’t taste very good” has been restored.
- The new Emperor scene has been re-edited to remove any new dialogue. Ian McDiramid’s voice and visage is still used, but he delivers only the original dialogue. Only one innocuous word (“Young Skywalker” vs “Luke Skywalker”) is different due to limitations in the source material.
- Boba Fett’s original voice is restored.
- OT line “Bring My Shuttle” and surrounding music cues have been restored.
- Shot of Vader walking to his shuttle has been removed.
- Shot of Shuttle flying to the Executor remains intact.
- Shot of Shuttle landing in the hangar has been removed. (This was a re-used shot from Return of the Jedi anyway, complete with Moff Jerjerod waiting for Vader).

Well this was pretty simple and the results were pleasant. Not much changed from the 2004 DVD but this is far superior to that cut.
