Hello! I last visited this site in 2011, and just re-registered to ask a specific question, which I posted in another section. I just wanted to introduce myself to like-minded fans 😃 I saw Star Wars about 7x in the theater in 1977 with my dad when I was 6. Leia was my idol growing up. So of course, I love the OOT. It has boggled my mind to no end why it would not be restored and released in high definition. In 2011 right before the big Blu-Ray release, I wrote an article about this, for which I think I found some information on this site.
My license plate is “HANSHOT.” The only versions our now 11yo has seen are Harmy’s. So yes, we’re purists!
May the Force be with you all!
