Finally ! Some " insider" news your starwars.sg team heard about several weeks ago can be officially confirmed .  Come 12th September 2006, Lucas will release the THEATRICAL versions of the Classic Trilogy , the versions you saw on big screen when you were young, WITHOUT all the CGI changes and changes in scenes ( which means Greedo gets to shoot first ! ) on DVD .... the first time the films will be available in this format.


The only time the theatrical versions were released were on VHS and old laserdisc versions, long out of print, and fans worldwide will be cheering for the chance to see the well loved films in a version we remember .


It will be good to see A New Hope when it was just called Star Wars , which was released in 1977 with a diifferent title crawl then what we saw more recent versions available on DVD.


"Star Wars," "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" will each be released in two-disc versions containing the original theatrical version along with the 2004 digitally remastered version.
 
The DVD reissues will be released with the September 12 debut of "Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy Game" and be available only until the end of the year.

Start saving up !

 Tell us what you think ... would you buy the DVDs of the theatrical versions ?
