I know I’m being picky here, and Star Wars is all about good, clean fun, but I noticed something that’s annoying. I’m watching the re-issue of Star Wars IV – A New Hope, a.k.a. the first one. They added a few new CGI touches that are pretty cool, but they’re also wrong. Here’s one example:
So Vader sends his minions to Tatooine in search of C-3P0 and R2-D2, and they’re crawling around on these lizard things. The Empire is probably the most technologically advanced entity in that universe. Why don’t they have more efficient transportation? If they have the ships to get down to this desert planet from up on their star destroyers, they should also have something to fly around in down here.
Luke has his landspeeder, as seen here:
If he can have this thing to buzz around in, those storm troopers should definitely have a better ride.
