As for the OT Lucas wanted to wait til the PT was complete before releasing them on DVD. The only reason he caved in 2004 was studio pressure.

  • I wonder when the OT would have been released on DVD without studio pressure.

  • I wonder if, before the sale to Disney, Lucas preferred that the Star Wars movies be released to theaters every seven years and never be released on VHS/DVD, but studio pressure got in the way with both formats.

Was the HD format war still a thing maybe? Just guessing they didn’t to create multiple releases.

No HD formats existed until 2006, and HD TVs were rare in 2000.
