George Lucas is back with his infamous re-editing.
As previously announced Star Wars Episode I would undergo a special treatment and the visual effects artists would replace the horrible Episode 1 Yoda puppet with a CGI version, seen on the Revenge of the Sith DVD:
But now it seems as if Lucas is doing what he initially promised not to do: Turn Yoda from Episode V and VI into CGI!
Seeing the great work done by our visual effects team and consulting with Jim [Cameron] for the 3D release of the Star Wars Saga it became more and more apparent that the original [puppet] was not fit for a 3D release.
Our crew has started working on the improvements and seeing the results I can safely assure you that the computer animated Yoda will be a vast improvement over the original portrayal while still honoring Frank’s [Oz] portrayal.
