Urth feat. Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band - Lapti Nek (with vocals by Joseph Williams)

Surprised I've never heard this version before. And it's a really interesting one, incorporating many of the English lyrics from "Fancy Man", and even the Ewok finale. Considering that we've never heard "Fancy Man" in full ... although here are some "sources" derived from my work.

Both songs - Fancy Man and the Ewok finale - lost a lot when they were "translated" to the film's nonsense languages. Perhaps why they were both replaced poorly in the special edition.

As for the Ewoks, I think "Celebrate The Love" is the only English lyric that made it to the 1983 film mix [at the very end], but it was recorded both ways, and some alternate mixes switch to English lyrics more clearly at the end.

Episode VII
The Force Awakens

Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Republic. The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is in dispute.
Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all shipping to the small planet of Naboo.
While the congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched two Jedi Knights, the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, to settle the conflict....

Well I did warn about spoilers but okay.

As I was leaving the teather, some guys were interviewing people to gather reactions to see what did they think of the movie, I accepted and so did my dad, what I said to them was basicaly what I just wrote, except in more detail I guess, aka it wasn't exactly a positive review, same thing with my dad, we trashed the film.

Today they posted the video, lots of dumb reactions, lots of little kids and teenagers talking about how it ''surpassed all expectations'' and how ''since my dad likes Star Wars I ended up liking it too'', My dad was in the video, and to him it was just a family progam, as for me, I was cut out completely in exchange for some kid saying that ''the graphics are the best in the whole saga''

I don't know why but it's all so funny

"The last line of human dialogue in RETURN OF THE JEDI is 'He's my brother.'"

Well -- If you count song lyrics, in 1983 it was "Celebrate the Love" [last line of the end song, and the only English-version lyric that is clear in the final mix].

In Lucas' more recent Special Edition, the last line I can understand goes to Jar Jar Binks, who shouts "Wesa free!"

I WISH I WERE JOKING BUT I'M NOT.

So if nothing else, Episode VII: The Force Awakens means that the last English line of the entire Star Wars saga is no longer spoken by Jar Jar Binks.

Actually it's when Han and Lando meet each other during the party and go ''HUH-HU-HA-HAAA''

I really wonder where all this ''720p is enough for Star Wars fan-edits'' talk came about, there is obviously a difference between 720p and 1080p when watching the OT on blu-ray, while I agree that any restoration done in the 90's is outdated and shouldn't be used for blu-ray by any means (look at Spartacus and how the previous blu-ray release looks compared to the recent 6K restoration from the original 70mm elements), the OT looks fine on blu-ray aside from the terrible color saturation/contrast, but there is an obvious downgrade when going to 720p.

They look as sharp as any film that was shot on 70mm looks that had a recent restoration for their blu-ray releases, King of Kings, Spartacus, Lawrence of Arabia, 55 Days at Peking, they all look amazing, and Star Wars is just as sharp as those, if you want to see an example of a poor outdated restoration being used for a blu-ray release, check the Miriam Editions of The Fall of the Roman Empire, El Cid, and as previously cited, the original blu-ray release of Spartacus, all shot on Super Technirama 70.
