The original Star Wars Trilogy has been through a lot of changes over the years, starting in 1997 with the release of the Special Editions. The Special Editions allowed George Lucas to tweak here and there and hype up the then-forthcoming prequel trilogy. Additional changes were made with subsequent home video/DVD/Blu-ray releases.
If you ever wondered just what changes were made to the original Star Wars Trilogy, Marcelo Zuniga has compiled the various differences in a series of handy videos.
(Personal aside from grandpa Hubert here: I remember the Special Editions were quite novel and exciting in the 1990s. I even saw all three Special Edition films in the theaters. And yes, I wore an onion on my belt, that being the fashion at the time. In retrospect, many of the additions to the Special Editions are superfluous, and others just down right egregious.)
