George Lucas said:
A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality.
That’s obviously not going to be true. A lot of wanting there from George.
More than likely in 100 years nobody will remember the SE, but the originals will still remain.
Some people dont even remember the originals now though.
