Time Magazine Cover[edit]

Consideration should be given to the Time Magazine Cover at the time of the Falklands War- which used the film title as it's headline — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:37, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

I would agree with that. I think that it fails the WP:GNG and is basically not notable enough to be included in the article. Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:58, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Is there a difference between the running times of the original version and the special edition?[edit]

The running time of the original version is 124 minutes, while the running time of the special edition is 127 minutes. Is there a difference? AdamDeanHall (talk) 16:54, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Maybe to add some new scenes, maybe? (talk) 01:39, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Inaccuracy in second paragraph[edit]

The second paragraph includes the sentence "The Galactic Empire, under the leadership of the villainous Darth Vader, is in pursuit of Luke Skywalker and the rest of the Rebel Alliance." Throughout the film, the Galactic Empire is ruled by the Emperor (Darth Vader is his subordinate). While technically accurate (because "lead by" doesn't necessarily mean that person is the supreme commander) the sentence is deceptive to someone unfamiliar with the film. Maybe change it to "The Galactic Empire is in pursuit of Luke Skywalker and the rest of the Rebel Alliance. While the villainous Darth Vader chases..." Sephalon1 (talk) 05:56, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
