Here's every change ever made to the Star Wars trilogy

The new Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri gained the nickname 'The Tinkerman' during his time in charge of Chelsea due to his propensity to constantly, needlessly change his team around - but, really that title should have been awarded long ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars director George Lucas has gained notoriety amongst the franchise's fans for his constant alterations to the original trilogy of films, from when they were first released in 1977, through to the latest iteration, released in 2011 (don't speak of the 3D versions). Whether it's the search for artistic perfection, or simply a new way to persuade die-hard fans to purchase the latest 'definitive' version, who knows.

There are many altered scenes, extra shots, change of exposition, extended backgrounds, added CGI, new characters - the lot. And did Han shoot first? Frankly we've got no idea. Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. Just make up your mind George. Video editor Marcelo Zuniga has painstaking compiled everything, creating a 15 minute clip for each movie, documenting every single change.

Take a look at the 15 minute clip for each movie below and glimpse into the undecided mind of George Lucas. Ordering at a restaurant with him must be a nightmare.
