George Lucas will be presenting Star Wars as one of eleven films shown in honor of the American Film Institute’s 40th anniversary.
It’s listed as “Star Wars (1977)” , but of course we all know, it WON’T be the 1977 version.
I’ve already sent an email to the AFI to ask whether or not this will be the 1977 version, and if it’s not, then it should be stated that it’s the 1997 version.
If you’d like to send an email as well, here’s the address:
This revisionist crap has got to stop!!!
EDIT: Thanks to all the emails we sent, the AFI listing now reads “special edition” rather than “1977.”
