There should be a proper release of the 1977 Star Wars at this point
Time

What do you mean “weird sock”?
I couldn’t think of a username so I just punched my keyboard.
Anyway, what I mean is if they won’t release all of the films unaltered, they could release a standalone ANH with no episode number like it was in 1977, and when I imagine what it would look like i think of this. https://imgur.com/a/RA4aO7q

If Disney won’t release every Star Wars movie without any changes, this is the least they can do. The 2006 DVD was released with no effort and missed the point entirely because it had 1993’s audio alterations. My idea is for a standalone release of Star Wars in its unaltered form in Ultra HD Blu-ray and digital. This would not only preserve an important piece of film history, but make them a damn good amount of money as well. George Lucas probably put something in the Disney contract so they can’t do this though, because any sane person in charge of Star Wars would definitely have done this already. I just can’t stand the CGI crap George Lucas put into Star Wars. What was he thinking?

Information about digital broadcasts of the theatrical version of The Phantom Menace?
Time

The only official widescreeen releases of the theatrical cut of The Phantom Menace are on VHS and Laserdisc. These broadcasts would be the only digital sources of the theatrical cut other than pan-and-scan VCDs. I have been looking for more information about these broadcasts and where to find them but I haven’t got anywhere with my research.

What font is used for "THE DIGITAL MOVIE COLLECTION" in this image?
Time

I have a feeling this might be the font used for the Episode title in the opening crawls. This font is used for the logos of the films in Star Wars The Digital Movie Collection.

Star Wars Episodes 1-9 : Correct buying / downloading versions
Time

ChainsawAsh, I’m talking about a different wipe. Wookieepedia says “There is a different wipe and slightly shorter “Noooo!!” from Darth Vader” which would probably refer to the wipe at 0:24 in this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tim5nU3DwIE and if the shorter “Noooo!!” is false, then the different wipe probably is false as well.

Revenge of the Sith DVD - additional change?
Time

It says on Wookieepedia that “There is a different wipe and slightly shorter “Noooo!!” from Darth Vader” on the DVD of Revenge of the Sith in addition to the other change, the wipe that was changed to a cut. I have been told the shorter “Noooo!!” is false because they have the theatrical audio, but Wookieepedia says there was a different wipe as well. Is any of this true, or was there indeed only one change on the DVD?

If you want the theatrical versions
The Phantom Menace: 2000 Widescreen Video Collector’s Edition (VHS)
Attack of the Clones: 2002 widescreen DVD is identical to the digital projection version
Revenge of the Sith: Theatrical version never released, but the 2005 widescreen DVD and 2011 Blu-ray are almost identical (Disney+ version is the Blu-ray version upscaled to 4K)
Original trilogy: 1992 Special Letterbox Collector’s Edition or 1995 THX Widescreen Edition (VHS)
Sequel trilogy: Every release is the same

Was Star Wars ever released on home video in widescreen with the Dolby Stereo mix?
Time

I know it was released in pan-and-scan on VHS, Betamax, and Laserdisc in 1982, but was it ever released in widescreen? I have heard the 1985 mix wasn’t on Laserdisc until later but I have also heard the 1985 mix was included in the Japanese Special Collection Laserdiscs. Any information on this is greatly appreciated.

I have already asked this in Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases but I didn’t get an answer to my question. This is an interesting subject to me, because the original Dolby Stereo mix was on pan-and-scan releases in 1982, but I have never heard of a widescreen release with the Dolby mix. The first widescreen release of A New Hope was on the Japanese Special Collection Laserdiscs in 1986, but they had the 1985 mix. However, I have heard (correct me if I’m wrong) that some Laserdiscs released after the Special Collection had the Dolby mix. The question is, is this true and were any of them widescreen? I am asking this because I wonder what would be closest to the 1981 theatrical re-release, since the only home video release with the original crawl were the 2006 bonus discs, and those have DVNR and the 1993 audio mix.
