In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie and, as bonus material, the theatrical edition of the film. That means you’ll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.
Man! I half-wondered if I’d ever see the original versions again, after I lost all my VHS tapes and laserdiscs in the stupid fire.
I love that we get both the cleaned-up versions and the original versions. :D :D :D :D
Note that they didn’t call Star Wars by its retcon name, A New Hope. They’ve been trying for years now to rewrite history, to say that the movie’s name is Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, or A New Hope for short. But the movie’s name is Star Wars, damn it. Maybe they’ve finally given up. ;)
