George Lucas just confirmed again,that Lucasfilm has no time to master the original 3 films until they are finished with the Episode 3.
It's just my opinion, but don't hold you breath for the original, original trilogy to be released on DVD or anything else. As for as Lucas is concerned, the 1997 version is the way these movies are now.
I don't think that "opinion" is correct; I think in Lucas' mind it is FACT.
I bought a WS THX trilogy from eBay - shrinkwrapped from Canada - and it just arrived today!
My wife is spending the day with her mom as a Mother's Day gift, so I have to wait to view these until she can watch with me...I promised!
However, I put in the first tape and it came up with the "commercial" that ran back in the day for this set. The commercial emphasized, time and again, that this IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO OWN THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE TRILOGY.
Apparently Lucas is aiming to "keep his promise". :frowning:
I for one, will gladly pay Lucas to break his promise. I have no intention of getting into LDs this late in the game, and after 1200 DVD's, but I am reminded of just how sucky VHS quality is :shudder:
I hope we can bring ET-style pressure to bear on ol' George to realize that we want the ORIGINAL THEATRICAL PRESENTATION of Ep's 4, 5, & 6...in addition to the 90's SE's and/or the "Ultimate" versions he is planning.
