Original Star Wars DVD Sets to be Released (Finally)

10th May 2006

Good news for those of us who were weaned on the original Star Wars motion pictures — LucasFilm is releasing DVDs containing the original Star Wars films this fall! No more having to watch Han acting in self defence when Greedo shoots at him; no more CGI Jabba the Hut. Of course, you will have to buy the digitally enhanced versions along with the originals, but such is life.

Read more about the announcement in Wired News (a very funny article).

May the force be with you (now where did I put that wooden dowel I used as a Light Sabre as a kid?)

    In all honesty, who would watch the edited versions? Half the fun of Star Wars was how incredibly good the special effects were will still being so terribly bad. (Like seeing a planet through the Millenium Falcon)

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo – Darth

    Yesa – Jar Jar

    The best difference in the two movies is how Han yelling and screaming chases five Storm Troopers down the hallways acting crazy, but turns around and runs away from four standing around in the original…. to him running from a squad in the new version
