I know that I'm a little late on this (I'm a newbie) but the '97 versions were released on VCD.

In Japan only and in Pan & Scan only. Both of those disqualify the VCD release from counting as a DVD release.

Anyway, I really want a DVD, Blu-Ray, or Digital release of the '97 Special Editions.

I got the 'Five Star Collection' DVDs in 2003 for Christmas. They're ok however they freeze in certain DVD players. They'll probably play smoother in more modern DVD players. Also the covers claim they're 'Anamorphic Widescreen' but they are not.

The negatives are still 97. That makes it easy to get them released.

Watching the 97 VHS of ROTJ, all I could think is "so much better than 04." Reasonable colors, Shaw as Anakin (the 97 ending is awesome beyond words), correct lightsabers, etc.

I wonder what the recent rumors mean for the 1997 versions.

 Almost certainly nothing.

 The absolute maximum will be deleted scenes. Even that's not likely.

 Oh come now.  I'm sure it won't mean that much.

Yes i would very much like a copy of Empire and Jedi which has the real ending with Sebastion Shaw and not Hayden Christensen thanks to Adywan Han shoots first again are they in 5.1 surround sound?

Dark_Jedi’s upcoming SE’97 set will have the laserdisc 5.1 audio for all three films.

Where can I find this?

Try and help me find a version of the 1997 special edition of empire strikes back in hd please it would be greatly appreciated🙏🙏
