I think the distinction with the FX then and now is not necessarily about how much could be put on screen but how often. If you took some of the Endor space battle scenes, they have as much going on in them as anything from the prequels. The difference is that the prequels have that level of complexity going on *all* the time.

It sounds like the author there is describing what ILM can do rather than what they should be doing all the time. I guess the question is, how much of the visual style is driven by directors and how much by FX companies?

(I've still got the laserdisc special edition that that book came from)

Anyone remember that time in the early nineties when no-one really talked about Star Wars? It'd been ages since Jedi and the Special Editions were still a glint in Lucas' bionic eye. No toys in the shops, no other merchandising around. B-wings in tatty boxes at jumble sales. Perhaps Ewoks was still on Children's BBC. It was all considered a bit nerdy and lame. Funny to think back to that now.

The names thing is getting dull now....

Yup, Dark Horse started releasing their new comics and the new Novels started coming out...
