Y'know, the fact that it's gotten almost 7900 sigs and counting is at least somewhat heartening, but the fact that it's taken almost six years makes it pretty unsurprising that we've heard next to nothing on the subject from lfl.
I like how people are still signing and leaving comments. With any luck, the right person at lucasfilm will read them and pass it along to whomever will eventually be in charge of a restoration.
The new regime aren't idiots. The hiring of Kasdan and moreso Rian Johnson is proof to me that someone is reading people's online comments. I heard a story the other day that Spielberg of all people is actually a big reader of the geek sites and sometimes even has to be pulled away from the computer by his assistants.
So anything's possible.
By comparison, do we know how many sigs - and over what span of time - the original OOT on dvd petition recieved way back whenever?
