    You don't seriously think that Mr. Luca$ cares in the slightest for trivialities such as 'fans' do you ?

    Zactly. Georgie-boy lost whatever marbles he had left before AOTC was released. He doesn't care what the fans want. The only way he would release the original films the way they were meant to be is if everyone boycotted Ep. III and all subsequent DVD releases. And that's never going to happen, so I think the franchise is well and truly dead.

    Sighed.
    I did not mind some of the extra bits which made the film longer in the updated version but the redoing of the all ready there scenes like the explosions looked worse than the original. I also liked some of the gaffs, and the bit where the storm trooper banged his head; well there was no reason to cut that.
    I also hated the new ending in Return of the Jedi.

    Signed. Thanks Confucius.
    I am optimistic that he might be willing to change his position, especially when you consider that fact that most fans will probably buy both versions (that is a LOT of money to say no to! - Perhaps we ought to petition 20thC Fox as well).

    Of course not, I meant buy a LD player, copy the discs to your PC and burn a DVD. That'd be 'fair use' wouldn't it ? I just worded my post badly :)

    Mike.

    Well they did say when they got their release on VHS that they would never be released in the original format again. I for one do not mind. I just want the to get a release date. Along with Indiana Jones.

    Well I'd love 'Jedi' on DVD :rolleyes: - all those cute cuddly little teddy bears wobbling around the screen and ruining what should have been the triumphant culmination of the original trilogy :mad:


    LucasFilm presents ...

    In anamorphic widescreen and DTS ... Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Rupert, Winnie, Barnaby, Paddington, Yogi, BooBoo and the whole freaking Care Bear Clan.

    :thumbsdow: :nono:


    Oh sod it - I've added my name to the list :suicide:
