    i missed when they did the limited DVD release...i do have em on VHS, but having them on Blu-ray will be awesome.

    I think it wasnt on the blu-ray set because when Lucas was still in charge he said the originals would never be released again...which i thought was a stupid move..but hey he was the boss lol...glad they will do this though...im in for a set for sure!

    .......


    I feel old

    The unaltered versions are the ORIGINAL trilogy as they were seen in theatres when they were originally released - before Lucas took his SFX paint brush and added droids that dance around in the background....among other things.

    However - I read another article debunking this rumour saying that because FOX owns the distribution rights to A New Hope, that there might not be any kind of deal with Disney. I dunno about that.... I think there's a boatload of money to be made and Fox would want a piece. Perhaps a temporary deal, but not giving Disney full ownership?

    haha i feel old too...

    Like Deathproof said, they are the versions released in the theaters in 1977, 1980 and 1983 respectively. The versions you see on SPIKE or the DVD and BluRay versions are the special editions that were not only cleaned up for digital release in the late 90's, but Lucas also added things in that he couldnt do in the original releases because the technology just wasn't there. Besides dancing droids and aliens that werent in the originals..there are CGI Dewbacks, droids for unnecessary added humor, Greedo shooting, changing Fetts voice to Temura Morrisons, adding a long Nooooooo from Vader at the end of Jedi, i guess to make the "full circle" as he did that in Ep3...and even taking out Sebastion Shaw as the ghost of Anakin Skywalker and changing him to Hayden Christensen...alot of stuff that fans that grew up with Star Wars dont like. Me Personally, im in the minority, and like most of the stuff he did clean up/fix/add, aside for the aforementioned and few other things. For us older folks, it would be a great thing to own these films as they were released in theatres originally, as we saw them as kids. So If your younger, which im guessing you are, you may not realize there are versions of these movies you havent seen.

    I appreciate the extra Boba scenes in Jedi, along with the cleaned up audio and some of the special effects, but everything else was completely offputting. I'm the last generation to see the unaltered trilogy seeing as I was a kid in a Star Wars phase in the mid 90s, and from a kid's perspective, I loved all the attention (and new toys) Star Wars was getting on account of the remastered editions. But in the same way I loved the godawful Matthew Broderick Godzilla movie as a kid, things are different now.

    I too believe that Fox own the rights to the original Star Wars film so I don't know how this will work. The alteration that grips my **** the most is the change in music at the very end of Jedi. It was better in 1983 when I first saw it. Back then people still smoked in cinemas although that wasn't so great!

    Re: Disney to Release Original Unaltered Trilogy!

    20th Century Fox owned full rights to the original film until they sold it to Lucas in 1998 in exchange for a lower distribution fee for the prequels and broadcast rights to Episode I.[100] In late 2012, The Walt Disney Company announced a deal to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion, with approximately half in cash and half in shares of Disney stock.[101] Although Disney will now own the rights to all Star Wars films, under a previous deal with Lucasfilm, the distribution rights to the first film will remain with Fox in perpetuity, while the distribution arrangements for the remaining films are set to expire in 2020. This could affect future video box set releases unless Disney and Fox come to an arrangement.[102]

    I was fine with some changes in SE but changing Boba's voice was unecessary

    Even the extra Boba Fett scenes feel rushed or just a bone thrown to his fans. I look forward to the blu-ray releases and I can finally retire my DVDS.

    I'm looking farward to the old rusty awesome Fett voice

    Actually, in fairness, some of the cleanup and new shots in the Death Star sequence in the first film do work quite well.
