George Lucas is a liar.
Anyway, Lucas is finally caving into fans and will re-re-re-re-release the Original Star Wars Trilogy on DVD as it was originally viewed in theaters. So Han murders Greedo..... No lame intro to Mos Eisley.... No flying lame droids in every shot.... No Jango voiceover Boba Fett.... No abyssmal Jabba dance sequence.... No 'Little Shop of Horrors' Sarlaac Pit.... No Hayden Jedi Spirit.
The DVDs will be released this year on Sept 12 and will then be removed from all shelves on Dec 31 (a strategy that Disney uses on many of its classic releases). However, I don't think I'm going to buy this. I already have the original versions transfered from Laser Disc to DVD and I've given Lucas sooo much of my money already. Of course, I said I wouldn't buy the Special Editions DVDs (the 1st release, not the 2nd) and I reluctantly did. So we'll see how I'm feeling on Sept 12th.
But cool for those who don't have those orig versions on DVD.
God I'm a sad sad bitter man.
