Why on earth do they need 22 DVDs for Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.  I looked it up imdb and there were only 30 episodes.  That's almost a disc an episode.


See?  I was looking forward to a box set containing all the episodes, or maybe a Volume 1 or 2 (containing all the episodes), but not I get to buy EACH episode individually !?!?

That suck, I am sure then, and only then after all have been sold on DVD in individual cases, will they ever come in one box.

Maybe he is planning on an extention on the 'ol ranch, and needs a few cents more?
Ah but therein lies the loophole. He HAS given you the untouched one. If he puts 5.1 and a new Anamorphic transfer, it would no longer be untouched or in effect, the original release.  Wink
He can do what the hell he likes with this upcoming boxset, as long as I can get my original UNTOUCHED trilogy with a 5.1 ANAMORPHIC cleaned up print like it SHOULD have been already!...
Pant... Pant... Took me awhile to dig this one up...

They's a comin'! Slightly pissed about the format, as they'll cost one Hell of a lot more than if they were just the episodes in a set.
The problem with the new Star Wars movies is the dialogue and the direction.  Before the new Star Wars, I would have never believed that a director could take that sort of cast and turn them in grade Z actors.
I love the first 2 Star Wars movies Jedi I liked.  The problem with the newest ones was that George Lucas made everything to busy!  Like when charectors are talking and out of the window behind them there will be a million special efects.  This takes away from anything the actors are trying to do.  Yes I love FX but when its too much it gets to be way too much...
Gabriel has a point there the Episode 1 Yoda bears very little relation to the Yoda from the original trilogy or even episode 2 and 3.  He can't have aged that much in 10 years!
Regaurdless, he looked like ass.
See i thought he looked younger in Episode 1
Yoda looked older in TPM than he did in TESB.
I am all for replacing the episode one yoda. It looked like ass. And besides, it's episode one, none of you all liked it anyway. If there was messing about with the original Yoda we'd have cause to be mad, but this is good news, to me at least. I bet they'll update Jar Jar someday down the line, the effects are showing their age.

Also, if any of you listened to the commentary on Fellowship of the Ring, you may remember Peter Jackson saying he had plans to alter the digital Gollum that appeared in that film, as it didn't really match the later one.
Well I'm not looking forward to the ongoing digital tinkering but here's hoping this all inclusive set has more extensive bonus features for the original trilogy.  The fact that all those deleted scenes from the OT haven't been used is just stupid. With any luck following the release of a 12 disc set Lucas will stop making the fans jump through hoops.
Charlie Brown says UGGGGGGGGHHHHH
There were (I believe) only 22 episodes, because, when the "Complete Indiana Jones 'Legacy'" was released on VHS in '99, "Temple of Doom" was Chapter 23, following the last "Young Indy" adventure ("Raiders" was 24 and "Crusade" was 25).
I could however be very wrong because I never actually saw any of these episodes on Television so I don't know exactly how many episodes there are, I am just making an educated guess.

That said, Lucas as a whole has no concept of how to properly use CGI. Neither does most of Hollywood for that matter. It still looks too fake to be used as a primary means to build imagery.


I agree and also, I think  the CGI doesn't look good in episode IV-VI because the films are just too old in my opinion and that's why it look fake.

It's great for hilighting stuff like stars or lightsabers, but there is no subsitute yet for a physical item. Like a ship model or a full size set.

I was also thinking of buying Young Indy, but I was assuming that it was coming as a proper box set. If they are all being released individually, it'll be like the first wave of Star Trek TOS. Expensive and bulky. No thanks.
Damn, can't the guy stop playing with his children like that? I meant the films incase anyone's confused.
Great job there, Messenger Jonny.
Not if they're only on HD/Blu Ray. I don't intend to buy that for a very long time (if at all).

Sounds like Chris will have to update his articles then. Happy
Someone digitally erased his integrity.
Will Lucas be digitially erasing Jar Jar?
"Fooled you I did" remarked Lucas....

You'll be pleased to know that Coleman also told me, in no uncertain terms, that Oz's puppet work in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi will NEVER be replaced with CG. So you fans can rest easy.

Producer Rick McCallum and ILM animation director Rob Coleman confirmed that Lucas has continued to digitally massage the other Star Wars films. Specifically, Coleman indicated that the puppet Yoda from Episode I has been replaced with a digital Yoda that matches the character as seen in Episodes II and III. The CG performance was specifically tailored to match to Frank Oz's puppet performance. You'll be pleased to know that Coleman also told me, in no uncertain terms, that Oz's puppet work in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi will NEVER be replaced with CG. So you fans can rest easy. You'll get to see the new changes on a future, as-yet-unscheduled box set release of the entire Star Wars saga on DVD and/or HD.

McCallum expects there to be 22 Young Indiana Jones Chronicles DVDs in all, 3 of which have been completed. The discs will include some 66 historical featurettes, now in production. Work has been ongoing for about 18 months on the Young Indy DVDs, with about another 18 months worth of work yet to be done. If all goes well, the plan is to tie the DVD release to the theatrical debut of Indy IV (the script for which Lucas is expected to finish this Sunday).
