Dealing with People Selling Fan Projects
Time

Harmy isn’t publicly distributing his projects himself. Thus he isn’t responsible for the objective breach in copyright because someone else posted his work. Get it?

And Jedi. “In this theatrical version of the finale to George Lucas’s epic space trilogy, the rebel forces take their last stand against the empire” https://www.netflix.com/title/70053215

Be sure to be logged into Netflix to see it of course

One more indicator of Lucasfilm’s active determination to screw over the fans.

According to theForce.net, the true fans will accept only the official Lucas-versions as the real films and the rest are babies. Also the Prequels are better because Lucas liked them more.

They’re entitled to their opinions and we shouldn’t get caught up on them.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

In '97 we got the special editions on VHS. New cuts of the films.
Seven years later, in 2004 we got the special editions on DVD. Again, new cuts of the films due to more alterations.
Seven years later, in 2011 we got the special editions on Blu-Ray. Yup, new cuts due to even more alterations.
If the pattern is to be followed, then we’ll get Star Wars on a new format and it’ll be something we haven’t seen before lol

Why is it taking so long to get Star Wars officially in 4K anyways? We know that the trilogy has already been restored by Reliance Media Works since 2014 so what’s the hold up?

Waiting for Mike to finish ESB and ROTJ from the prints LFL supplied him with.
(hopehopehopehopehope)

I mean, we should’ve at least gotten the Special Editions in 4K by now. Perhaps they want to bundle the cuts together.

Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world, we live in Disney’s world.

And they like money, and releasing obscure cuts of one of the most popular trilogies of all time would give them
a ton of it. There’s something holding those cuts back. I don’t believe Disney is disinterested. I think it has
to do with who gets to make the most bank off of all the blue balled Star Wars fans

So does anyone honestly still think that when the time eventually comes to release the OT on 4k* that Disney won’t include a restored OOT?

I mean, to the layman, do the 2011 blu-rays look that terrible when upscaled on a properly setup and calibrated 4k display? People are going to need a reason to buy these movies yet again other than higher (but not necessarily perceptible) resolution and hdr.

Maybe I’m way underestimating the demand for a 4k hdr SE, but I feel like a lot of fans are worn out from all these changes and would prefer to simply watch these films as they were.

*probably no sooner than 2020 so that Disney can keep the profits from Empire and Jedi all to themselves.

The general population doesn’t care about the changes. A great number of them have never seen anything but the SE. They don’t even know what they’re missing, and their numbers are growing every day.

All Disney would have to do is market the theatrical cuts as all new never before released cuts and those people will have their minds blown

Is Disney Physically Allowed To Release The OUT?
Time

We have no way of knowing whether or not Disney has the power to release the original versions of Star Wars. Until they
say that they have plans of doing so. George could be holding them back, or FOX. Perhaps no one is holding them back, and
they’re waiting for the 9th episode to be concluded, so that they can sell this grand box set. Who knows. Not us

George can make all the changes he wants. Just label it as a separate director’s cut, not the only version that should exist.

George isn’t the director for 66% of the OOT! ;D

Then call it The George Lucas Edition. Has a nice ring to it.

Here’s how I’d want the films to be addressed
1977 Theatrical Cut
1997 Special Edition
2004 Special Edition
2011 Final Cut

Somebody should do one of these posts on Reddit:

<----- Number of people that want the original theatrical version of star wars released on blu-ray

If that hit the front page of reddit it would mean quite a bit I think. The OT crowd would definitely have to get the ball rolling. I’m assuming everybody has reddit accounts?

What’s reddit?

You don’t wanna know

Question about the 2006 &quot;GOUT&quot; DVDs
Time

eBay is absolutely laden with Star Wars bootlegs

The 2004 DVD box set has been bootlegged and is sold daily on eBay for like 22$.

These complete saga dvd sets are also being sold for like 35$ a pop and an official DVD complete saga set doesn’t exist.

Also, on fake Blu Ray and DVD complete saga sets, they always mislabel the rating for ROTS as PG
