“Like most DVD fanatics I picked up the u0026quot;Star Warsu0026quot; boxset last Christmas when it came out. I was disappointed, to be honest. Apart from the fact that much more could have been included in terms of extra content (did we need a video game demo taking up space on the fourth disc?) it also didnu0026#39;t include the original versions of the films – which, as far as I know, are those that practically everyone prefers.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eNevertheless this insightful and exhaustive documentary – which covers the entire pre-production through post-production phase of each original u0026quot;Star Warsu0026quot; film – almost redeems the DVD collection. Although it is fairly u0026quot;full of itselfu0026quot; as IMDb commentator Bob the Moo notes, it DOES feature a good wealth of information – including some facts I hadnu0026#39;t heard about before (e.g. Jedi was given a fake working title so fans wouldnu0026#39;t sneak onto the set).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf youu0026#39;re a fan of u0026quot;Star Wars,u0026quot; definitely check this out – if you donu0026#39;t want to dish out the cash, itu0026#39;s playing on Au0026amp;E right now. But in my opinion itu0026#39;s not as great as it could have been because it falls victim to George Lucasu0026#39; u0026quot;cleannessu0026quot; – weu0026#39;re led to believe u0026quot;Star Warsu0026quot; is the most important and defining event of the past century and that turned me off a bit.”
