I looked, but found no thread about this yet, which was surprising:
George Lucas has come out and said that the original versions of the original Star Wars trilogy will not be released on DVD. Only the “Special Edition” versions of the films will be released on everyone’s favorite home video format. He says that “the Special Editions are what he wanted the films to be originally, but time and money restraints way back when did not allow them to happen.”
Oh, sure. He always meant for Greedo to shoot first. To quote today’s editorial from The Digital Bits:
Join me in weeping for this tragedy.
