I just read over at the Force.net that Lucas has already shot even more new scene's that he will cut into the original trilogy, and released sometime this decade. He is adding stuff that will tie the entire series together better, so he says. So, it seems that their is no hope AT ALL for the Star Wars purists out their of ever getting the original unaltered versions of these films on dvd. I have to say though, that on a sidenote, i'm very interested in what exactly he'll be adding. I'm hoping for four thing's, in addition to all of the other new stuff... 1. That he'll restore the Greedo scene back to it's original version. 2. Remove that godaweful Jabba the Hutt scene. 3. Remove that girlyman scream from Luke in 'ESB'. 4. And finally, restore Vader's "Bring my Shuttle!" line back into 'ESB'. With the exception of those four scene's, I really liked the special edition's, thay match 'EP 1' more I think. I think that his reasoning behind all these changes is sound, he just want's the entire story to flow equaly and evenly without a noticable change in looks between the six films. That makes sense to me. So, to all you guy's here who are still holding out hope that we'll get these unaltered on dvd, I think you might as well just throw your hands up, it's all over now. Boy, i've been on a real Star Wars kick here latly! I guess i'm just giddy with anticipation for 'EP II'.
