This is a great thread. Thanks for all the hard work.
Maybe add a section on the GOUT and George’s comments he made then?
“The other version, it’s on VHS if anybody wants it. I’m not going to spend the, we’re talking millions of dollars here, the money and the time to refurbish that, because to me, it doesn’t really exist anymore. It’s like this is the movie I wanted it to be, and I’m sorry you saw half a completed film and fell in love with it.” - George Lucas.
“It’s just the original versions, as they were. We didn’t do anything to it at all. But we’re not sure how many people want that…Now we’ll find out whether they really wanted the original or whether they wanted the improved versions. It’ll all come out in the end.” - George Lucas
He’s being very disingenuous with these comments.
(I still love George Lucas anyway though.)
