Responding to legions of fans, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have agreed to release the original versions of the first three Star Wars movies, unmodified by digital enhancements, on Sept. 12. Each of the films, Star Wars (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983) will be released separately and will be accompanied by a second disc offering the digitally reedited version produced in 2004.
That's really obnoxious. Had I known they would do this, I wouldn't have bought the bastardized re-edits to begin with. Now, if I want the original, better versions I'm going to get the version I already bought? On what planet does this make sense?
You'd have to think Jar Jar Binks was a good idea to believe this is a good idea as well.
