It is finally official , the Classic Star Wars Trilogy is going to be released on DVD finally, it will be the Special Edition and will be released in Fall 2004, right before Episode 3 comes out it makes perfect sense.  So look forward to that!

That's awesome news!  I sure wish it would have been the original version though, but I'll take any version of Star Wars on DVD.   ;D

Indeed, nothing confirmed as yet.  Lots of rumour and good rumour it is, eh?

I'd be thrilled frankly if he released the OT as the SE without changing it further.  I'm genuinely afraid that more will change (Amidala suddenly appearing in Star Wars - ANH) to satisfy George (and they are his movies after all).  

I think my nephew has the O-OT on DVD so I'll borrow his when I get the new 'puter.  Then if these rumoured discs are the SE I'll be happy.  I can then choose whether or not to get the Even Newer Special Editions (ENSE).

1) it's not official, yet.
2) it's not on RS' main page, yet.
3) i'd buy it, yet, i'd rather have the non-SE.  :-*

When it's officially announced, we're ALL gonna know.  It'll be everywhere--Starwars.com, TheForce.net, Originaltrilogy.com, all of the different collecting sites, all of the different DVD sites, everywhere, with the official release date, and everything.  It won't be from a guy named "Mainland05" who thought he saw something on some website somewhere.

In related news, I heard that they've finished Episode III early and it will start showing in an exclusive engagement at a Walla Walla, Washington theatre next week under the assumed title "Big Momma's House 3".

Take it to the bank.

Is it just me, or do I detect just a tiny hint of sarcasm :-*

If you guys dont believe me read this, it sounds pretty official to me :

We have more evidence for you that the Star Wars Trilogy is coming to DVD in 2004. First of all, IGN Games has posted a story about the Rogue Squadron trilogy of games (previously exclusive to Nintendo) coming to the Xbox platform in 2004. Word is this is being timed to coincide with the release of the original films to DVD. Also, the Yakface.com website (which is dedicated to Star Wars memorabilia collecting) has learned that Lucasfilm is inviting its many corporate partners to an event at the Presidio (in San Francisco) on November 5th. The invitations read: "Lord Vader is planning a major assault. He summons you to share his top secret battle plans." With Episode III still nearly two years away from theaters, it's entirely possible that this meeting is intended to announce the DVD release plan to retailers for next year. Thanks to everyone who sent these stories in.

It is from The Rumor Mill, but sounds pretty official, so dont yell at me!!!
