This thread has been up for 4 minutes and no one has posted worrying if George Lucas has made changes to this movie? The internet is slipping.

I'm sure they're counting the extras along with the running time of the movie.

Sounds pretty good, but will the Blu-ray not include the Warwick Davis commentary track from the old DVD? That's one of the best actor commentaries I've ever listened to.
