I hear ya. I'm not suggesting there's no room for CGI. I just think it's one of those kewl goodies that is seductive enough to be over-used. Having said that, if I could be CGI'd a few inches taller and a few decades younger, well... <br><br>

There *was* originally supposed to be TWELVE movies- the number got less and less as Lucas developed more of the story...<br><br>He currently sticks to the notion that there's really 'no more' story to be told after Vader dies...<br><br>Personally, I'll believe there's no more movies once Lucas is dead and buried. But even THEN I might have my doubts...<br><br>Back in Black...

I think the only stop-motion used in IV was the hologram chess set. Speaking of which... why the HELL didn't ILM redo that??? We don't need Jawas doing slapstick on a ronto during the trek to Mos Eisley.<br><br>Actually, I think the compactor monster's eye was stop-motion as well. I think Lucas is intentionally leaving in the crappy effects as not to bruise ILM's (the pre-digital ILM) ego. So in one movie we get breathtaking, digital panoramas along with still-evident 28 year-old matte lines.<br><br>
