It was also an excuse to make a new 4K digital master of the movie of a Blu-Ray release later this year around the real 15th Anniversary of the movie. But what would Titanic be like if George Lucas, JJ Abrams, and Michael Bay revi... more.

A funny aside to this is that on the special features for the Star Wars Episode II DVD release is a featurette about the CG Yoda where George Lucas reveals that Yoda is really the son of Kermit and Ms. Piggy. As for this, it makes sense that Gizmo is the offspring of Yoda and an Ewok.... more.
