To CGI or Not to CGI

Remember me??

I have been so busy lately that i just haven't had time to bring my view to Wardi world. The boss seems to be doing fine without me though...

As most of you here know this week saw the release of Star Wars Episode III, something which a lot of us have been eagerly awaiting.

Having watched it with and without the commentary (very good indeed :)) and viewed all the extra features i noticed something which made me stare.

In the Chosen One documentary on disk 2 there is a clip of Yoda doing his "Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate lead to suffering..." line.

But it's a CG Yoda!!!! The clip is from a scene in from Episode I and Yoda wasn't CGI in Episode I, Yoda was a new improved puppet in Episode I(and a crappy looking one at that) which means the scene has been redone...

Hmmm, George just can't not tinker can he??

Do i smell a newly CGIed re-release on the horizon???
