I doubt it, as he says he got it from a friend.
He also doesn’t use the term “Despecialized Edition”, but it’s clearly what he’s describing.
He also takes jabs at the Special Edition.

What if 25 years ago the OT got released on MUSE Hi-Vision laserdiscs?

Well, that would’ve been great.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

The X0 project would have had much more to work with?

^ I have been seeing this story making the rounds in more than a few outlets today …seems like a smear campaign ahead of the new movie to me …I mean ,this is really old news as evidenced by interviews with Lucas as far back as early 2016 …seems this news from back in May of this year is being swept under the rug …https://www.wired.com/story/cantina-talk-84/?fbclid=IwAR1aw6pDEn60syzakPjFtbeX353nOQ2jBhbyzFyNqadi3rosPmtjqVI-wEc

and George’s criticisms of The Force Awakens mentioned in the article you posted are ironically , the same criticisms that his old friend and long time collaborator , producer Gary Kurtz had about Return Of The Jedi …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM7mZ0OwFfE

Well, the quotes from Iger’s new book seem a little more damning than past reporting, but it does also paint a picture of George kinda just throwing a hissy fit because they decided not to use his outlines and being unwilling to judge the final result of TFA on its own merit.

You know how many of the people who hated it were fans who didn’t like the direction the story/characters went in? Imagine how it’d be to be George Lucas and for it not to go in the direction you wanted. I’m sure he was pretty crotchety about it. The irony of course being that they actually did utilize many elements from his outlines. With $4bil the sour grapes seem a little unjustified, but of course it doesn’t seem like he was too terribly upset about it, considering he continued to meet with the directors of all the following films and visit many of the sets.

I wish I could be pissed off to the tune of four billion dollars. 😛

Anyone else think Iger resembles Frank Sinatra? Whenever I see him, I think I’m watching a new Tony Rome movie.

I still love Victory Celebration, haves more weighted finality to it and gives scale to the galaxy. In other words, it shows how so many were depending on the Rebellion to succeed. And I adore the music along with it!
