Original Star Wars trilogy may become available on Blu-Ray


Star Wars before they ruined it, available again? So says Comicbook.com.

According to our sources, Disney has plans to release the original cut of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray. Our sources indicate that the project has been under way for quite some time, but it’s been challenging because of some damage to the original negatives they are utilizing. The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their complete, unaltered, original form without the redone special edition SFX.

At first, I loved all the gratuitous Falcon shots, but they went too far. I've been planning to host a viewing of Star Wars in Machete Order for a while. We are planning to use Harmy's Star Wars despecialized edition, but real, remastered originals would be a dream.

  1. I have the Harmy's Blu Rays, and watch in the Machete Order twice a year - Yes, it would be fantastic to have the Blu Rays from Disney, but the Harmy versions would be pretty hard to beat. I think the only thing that would get me to buy would be commentary from the original cast, a photo album of pretty exclusive images, and maybe an easter egg that has the original Christmas Special.

    If they wanted to really do it right, Have some current look-back documentaries from some of the key players talking about the making of. We've already seen so much of this, but Disney could do it right with archival footage and current footage blended together.
