As a side note, as much as I want Lucasfilm to release the original versions, I also think it would be in poor taste of them to do it after George dies if he doesn’t give them his approval (which he most likely won’t). George’s approval is really the only thing holding back an official OOT release.
Meanwhile, on the Coruscant newsnet vox pops…
“As much as I want a post-Palpatine galactic government to bring back the Senate, I also think it would be in poor taste of them to do it after the Emperor dies if he doesn’t give them his approval (which he most likely won’t).”
But seriously, I think it would reflect well on Lucasfilm if they released what many fans considered to be the “true” versions of Lucas’ best-known work. Even if he doesn’t see it that way, one could argue that creators are sometimes too close to their own work for a proper perspective.
