    Just illustrating the risks of what we might get if Smell-O-Vision actually came to Star Wars.

    Thank you so much for sharing, I'm going to make time to watch this tonight!

    One thing I'll say, saw 20 seconds of the opening of the video and was astounded at seeing all the practical props and sets. And re-watching the OOT through...various means...I'm struck at how well those effects have held up over time.

    So does anyone know why the film was never released?

    Also if there is a special edition version?

    I haven’t had a chance to looking in my making of empire strikes back book by jw rinzler...

    I'm 90% sure I saw this or a bunch of the same clips on an ABC special a few weeks after release.

    If they did that - and it's a massive "if" - I'd think a box would come out late 2020.

    Release E9 on its and then do a series-spanning box in the fall for holiday sales.

    I'd be surprised to see a box that included "Solo" and "R1". I'd expect it to stick with the 3 trilogies...

    If the unaltered versions are not included, it's an easy pass for me.

    Time will tell.

    I actually think it will be all 11 films. The rumor was only se of the originals. I’m fine with that.

    I understand that the best way to release them would be to include all cuts and original theatrical audio tracks as well.

    I think we will hear something when the rise of skywalker appears on blu ray in March or so...

    It seems weird to include Rogue One and Solo along with the trilogies but it also seems weird to have RO be the only SW movie not released in 4K too.
