Well, 25 years ago today the special edition of Star Wars was released in theaters. The special editions have now been around for a quarter century. Did you go to the theater? (I was not yet born) (That’s probably been discussed before I’m sure, but this thread is specifically about the 25 years thing)

Also of note, in this NY Times article from 25 years ago today, it reads,
“But the temptation will be to use effects because they can be used, to revel in technique rather than story. Mr. Lucas’s films have mostly avoided that temptation, but is it possible that with the tinkering in this ‘‘Special Edition,’’ he may have been slightly lured by the dark side of the Force (and its marketing potential)?”

Hmmm…
