has been reported all over the web and on this website for months, though now there's a resurgence in the rumors that an eventual and final release of the Classic Trilogy is coming. Where these rumors are coming from now is a person emailing a list of changes to websites and telling them work is being done. And while we can defintiely confirm that ILM is working on the movies for plenty of enhancements, the list may not be accurate.
Here's the run down of possible and very rumored changes:

Episode IV: A New Hope

The Imperial March has been added to Darth Vader's first appearance on Princess Leia's ship.
When Obi-Wan is talking to Luke about his father Anakin's Theme plays in the background and then it turns into the Imperial March as he talks about Vader.
The lightsaber effects have been redone and the frame jumps of lightsabers being turned on has been removed.
There's a new scene which has been shot during the filming of Episode III in which the Emperor dissolves the Senate.
In the Cantina, the Duros (green aliens guys) have been replaced with Neimoidians and some aliens from the prequels have been added.
The bleeding arm on the floor in the Cantina has been replaced with a non-bleeding arm because it's now canon that lightsabers cauterize wounds.
The original shooting scene between Han and Greedo has been restored.
Jabba the Hutt has been given a makeover and Han no longer steps on his tale.
In place of R2 wobbling down the stairs to the Falcon's hangar, a CG R2 navigating the stairs like he does in Attack of the Clones was added.
The white boxes around space ships have been removed and new CG shots have been added.
The scene of the Falcon being chased by the two Star Destroyers was modified. The Falcon now does spinning moves, avoiding the Star Destroyers' fire.
When the Death Star destroys Alderaan there's a new scene of Yoda's reaction to the disturbance in the Force that is created by all those deaths and then it cuts to Obi-Wan reacting to it as well.
The Dianoga has gotten a CG makeover and were are now able to see more of the creature.
The Death Star's paneling and computers have been slightly altered to show similar displays to those in the prequels.
The words "Tractor Beam" with Aurebesh lettering.
More stormtroopers have been added to the Death Star.
Temuera Morrison's voice is being recorded for use with all the stormtroopers.
The Obi-Wan/Vader duel has been spruced up. It is much more epic and there is much more movement. A modified version of Duel of the Fates is being considered for the scene.
The Death Star plans that are taken from R2 have been updated. When the Rebels are reviewing the Death Star plans they look similar to the plans we see in Attack of the Clones.
The Death Star battle is much more epic with more Tie Fighters and more Rebels being blown to bits. We get to see old Naboo starfighters being used by the Rebels.
There's a new scene (shot during Episode III) where Darth Vader goes to Coruscant and lands his ship in the same building Count Dooku does at the end of Attack of the Clones. Except now the building is all fixed up and it is now Palpatine's palace. He meets with Palpatine to ask for forgiveness for his failure and inform him of a new potential who is strong in the Force.
Chewbacca now gets a medal.
Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
The taun-tauns are now CG.
The battle of Hoth is much more epic. We see the Imperial ships land on Hoth and release AT-ATs. The AT-ATs have been sped up a bit. There's a ground battle between the Rebel soldiers and stormtroopers featuring new ships and vehicles.
Temuera Morrison's voice is being recorded for the older Boba Fett and all the stormtroopers.
The white boxes around space ships have been removed.
The slug monster is CG.
Ian McDiarmid has refilmed scenes as the Emperor. The conversations between Vader and Palpatine is now longer and features a few connections to the prequels.
Yoda's f

In other words, George Lucas is unable to tie the prequels to the orginal Trilogy. So he is going to go and mess around with them to make it fit.

"Again, these are more of a wish list than accurate information."

Sounds great and all, until you read that part.

I did get it from a web-site. Though it does sound mostly like "fan-boy" stuff.

I couldn't care less. :-)
I hate Star Wars. ;-)
I once tried to watch it. I tried to like cos I thought there MUST be something about Star Wars if everybody loves it. I couldn't find anything about that movie.
What is it that impresses you so much about Star Wars? I just don't get it! LOL

"Gungans, on Naboo celebrating with the people of Naboo and the Gungans."
"We get to see old Naboo starfighters being used by the Rebels."

I know this is just speculation on this guys part, but I think there is a reason why Naboo and its associated creatures are not featured or mentioned in the original trilogy. I dun think they git blowed up real good in episode 3.

I think it would be nice to have a little nod to the prequals in the original trilogy perhaps a holograpic statue of Qui-Gon in Obi-Wan's hut on Tattoine, but replacing actors as in Sebastian Shaw as the redeemed Anakin or Boba Fett's voice is just silly and wouldn't work at all. I would, however, like to see Natalie Portman in them but that's just for personal reasons.
