So they are releasing a version of Star Wars on DVD that includes both the most up to date digitally remastered version, and the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy. This has me extremely excited. I've put off and put off and put off buying myself a copy of Star Wars, though why, I couldn't say (Being a sci-fi obsession, you'd think I'd own it. Technically, I do, but it's on VHS, and in NY to boot). See the title crawl to Star Wars before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and yes, see Han Solo shoot first.
So I'm in. It's only available for a few months, September to December. Knowing Lucas though, they'll do something t stretch it and get some more money from it, but hell, a copy of that will be owned by me. It's essentially what I've been waiting for, I just didn't know it.
So may the Force be with you.... and off I go.
