    I'll be a Disney fan for life if so. After the last move I lost my Empire strikes back out of the DVD pack that has the original cut on one side and the Lucas shitshow special edition on the other.Now I may get a chance at redemption.


    Could we see the original versions of the original trilogy alongside the release ofEpisode VII?!

    Bleeding Cool seems to think so, in a post from yesterday which suggests that Disney and Lucasfilm are considering just that. According the May 15th story, Disney is set to re-release A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi minus the redone special effects and new scenes added to the 2004 Special Editions.

    The post goes on to say that the trilogy would be available on both home video (DVD, Blu-ray) and via On Demand services. The latter would, to my mind, be a first – I can’t recall either the trilogy or the prequels being available with a streaming option since their release, even after Fox dropped the complete saga on DVD back in 2011.

    Oh, Jesus (or whoever you believe in) let this be true. I can't find one true Star Wars fan that likes the remakes Lucas has done. I can understand improving on the quality of the video (so it'll play better for HD or the like, sound improvements, etc) but the completely unnecessary and ridiculous "edits" he kept doing............ugh!

    Greedo shooting first was the worst edit of them all.

    No, I bought the transfers off Ebay when I saw that the first released DVD's were going to have only the changes. We didn't get the unaltered versions on DVD for a decade and ..... they were just a transfer of the laserdiscs anyway. George Lucas is pretty much a dick.
