For a limited time aledgedly...
They are being released on 11/9/2006 but only for a few months. Each film comes with 2 dvds, one of the original theatrical version and one with the enhanced version.
HMV has been the cheapest place I have found so far.
for the UK anyway...

I am dubious as to the reality of this being a strictly limited thing but whos gonna take the chance??

For as much as some people claim to hate what Star Wars has become, they sure seem incapable of shutting up about it.

Wow!! I'm definitely getting these!! Does anybody know what sort of transfer it will be? Will they be remastered? Will it be anamorphic?

War does not make one great.

Haha, that's enough guys. We don't want to hurt his feelings. I'm sure everybody's done it once. But, yeah, that news actually broke close to two months ago, so we already know.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

One of my Fav movies. I watched it just the other day.

This post reminded me of my excitement when I heard the Original unaltered trilogy was coming out on dvd before GL crushed my dreams by not making them anamorphic.

I guess I'm behind, too- I just found out last week when my copy of Star Wars Insider came in the mail. LOL

LOL...I love that film, too.

"So, other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"

-sigh- I hate to say this, but this is the best we will EVER get on DVD for the OOT. Yes, it's letterbox, a virtually unused technique for presenting widescreen fims since 2000, and Lucas has won. Tampering can be made to make it somewhat anamorphic, but in six months time Lucas will be victorious in his decade-long destruction of a beloved trilogy. SW has become Disneyland now-a work that is never finished. Sure after Lucas kicks the bucket his successors will definitely want to keep Lucas' intentions alive and we'll get the Stalinist censorship and reenvisioning claiming to be his intent back in the 70s. I know I said I would avoid the DVDs like the plauge, but VHS will fall apart after ten years, but at least DVD last 5 times longer than VHS and by then it can be a tempelate to keep it in substandard conditions for every future video format to eternity. It just proof of the death of something we loved.

I don't know about that..... I see this upcoming DVD release as a sign that Lucas is beginning to soften a bit. I really do think he's testing the waters, to see if those of us who've been screaming for the OOT, are willing to put our money where our mouths are. It could be that he's so insulated, that he really doesn't think that there are that many of us who actually want the OT, and thinks that most Star Wars fans feel the same way about the SE that he does.

If these DVDs sell big-time, I think it will be an eye-opener for him. He may decide to give the OOT a hi-def release in the future. Normally, I wouldn't be this optimistic- but the fact that the OOT is coming out on DVD at all is a BIG shocker for me- I never thought I'd see it happen, especially with the disdain that GL has shown for them.

mielr, I too was shocked that the OOT was coming out two monts ago, but I think Lucas is only doing this to stop the bootleg market. It's just like when he wished the SW holiday sepcail destroyed-he repeating himself by giving us a shoddy product.

In other words, Lucas doesnt care about the OOT, PERIOD!
