"Original" Orginal Trilogy on DVD!
« on: May 3, 2006, 09:18 PM »
This September: Original Unaltered Trilogy on DVD

Yes, it sucks ass that you have to re-buy the SE versions to get the "good ones", but I will be SOOOOOOOOO happy to see Han shoot first again...

Wow! That's awesomely unexpected.

And for once I'm glad I don't own DVDs yet ;) These sound like everything I want- and it would be perfect for comparison, too. Sebastian Shaw's role unabridged will also not fade into any obscurity.

Ahh, what I really love is the way the Death star used to explode- just sort of vanished and was replaced by a million sparks. Good stuff ;)

This is big.  Huge!  I'm marking September 12th on my calendar right now.

Finally, I get to see Han shoot first on DVD!

I am seriously shocked. To read the announcement, it seemed like I was reading a cruel April Fools day joke and was waiting for the "just kidding" punch line. Seriously, I had to think for a second to make sure April Fools was indeed over.

This is one of the best announcements I've ever heard, however, today seemed to be a day of good announcements as we got an even better one; we got official notification that our oldest daughter (6) just got into the #1 rated school in the Los Angeles School District. #10 in the State of CA.

I thought the same thing!! How they were able to keep this under wraps? I can't beleive that this didn't leak out before now but I don't care. Mark me down for one of each please, hell...put me down for three each (one set for each kid at Xmas ;) ).

PS: Congrats Darth_Anton to you and your daughter. Very cool news indeed!

Me too. I'm sitting here, scowling, skeptically looking for the hi-lar-ious punchline... Especially since so many dumbasses think that kind of gag is so funny on April 1st. So happy it's not BS. Now I can actually celebrate at the 30th con instead of boycotting it in disgust as I did for CIII!!!

"Each original theatrical version will feature Dolby 2.0 Surround sound"

I'm curious to see what it's like to experience the movies just like they were during their original release. I have to admit, it would be nice to have the original movies digitally remastered for perfect picture and sound (ie Dolby 5.1*) but without the additional footage from the Special Editions; however, I'm going to be glad to have these regardless.

*Even better would be DTS, but since Lucasfilm owns Dolby, I'm sure SW will always use Dolby for their sound.

Geez, fans always find something to complain about. ;)

I am shocked!  I thought we'd  wait years for these.  It proves that Lucasfilm does care and does lsiten to us.  Now we have a choice!!  I am very, very happy!!

Wow! I never really cared about a re-release of the original, unaltered films, but this will make a LOT of people happy.

Now, Instead of saying...

Well, this is good, but GL is a moron for not releasing them until now!

say...

Yes! Let's rejoice and be glad and not whine! YEAH!!

I've had a great day all day. Scored some Target exclusives, got a big box full of stuff from ebay, and got some girl's digits. Then I come home and read this news.

Greatest day ever. ;D

Woohoo! I hope this comes with that 2004 Bonus disc as well, that way I can sell the other set.

I also hope the price remains at/around $50
