Hello! I last visited this site in 2011, and just re-registered to ask a specific question, which I posted in another section. I just wanted to introduce myself to like-minded fans 😃 I saw Star Wars about 7x in the theater in 1977 with my dad when I was 6. Leia was my idol growing up. So of course, I love the OOT. It has boggled my mind to no end why it would not be restored and released in high definition. In 2011 right before the big Blu-Ray release, I wrote an article about this, for which I think I found some information on this site.

My license plate is “HANSHOT.” The only versions our now 11yo has seen are Harmy’s. So yes, we’re purists!

May the Force be with you all!

Is it Lucas, or Fox, who has prevented the restored OOT release?
Time

OK so… since the whole special edition vs. theatrical release issue started, I have thought, from all that I have read (such as on SaveStarWars.com, and various articles), that it was Lucas’ decision to not restore and make available the theatrical releases in high definition. I just found out tonight that my husband has thought this whole time that it is because Fox has distribution rights and they are preventing this, not Lucas. I have articles that say the former, but he looked it up tonight and is correct that until this month, Fox does have distribution rights–but is that why they haven’t been released? If so, why did Lucas give many other reasons but not that one? Can someone please clear up this mystery for us? Maybe it’s all in “People vs Lucas”?? We haven’t watched that yet.

Here’s an article I wrote about this whole issue in 2011, for anyone who’s interested! 😃
