DJ did a '97 SE set, and sent out some discs to beta testers (such as me and a few others) for preview purposes.

They look good and all, but they have worse smearing than the GOUT/'93 laserdisc master.  Because of this, I believe DJ decided not to publicly release them, which is a shame, even if the quality wasn't as good as everyone hoped it would be.

Beyond that I'm not entirely sure.

 

Yes, I read about that. The reason I want them is because I want my kids to experience Star Wars the way I did. My first copies were taped from TV, then I got the Faces P&S VHS. I saw the Special Editions in the theaters, bought the VHS of those, then the prequels, then the 2004 Special Special Editions, etc. I want them to be able to see the progression and, IMO, the degradation, of the Holy Trilogy.
