This may have already happened in the US, but here in the UK next week we get the limited edition DVD release of the original theatrical cuts of episodes 4,5 and 6 (you know- the good one's). This is very exciting as this is how I (and millions of others)remember them the first time round, before George went revisionist CGI happy and ruined-erm...updated them.
Proper band with proper music in Jabba's bar, proper Ewok music at the end of Jedi, did I mention no jarring use of CGI already?

If you havent seen them as god intended them to be, it is essential that you do so. Simple as that.

I think this has happened but not for sure. I actually had seen this on its debut at the drive-in with the family back in 1977, who would have thought it would turn out so big. I've seen it and its predecessors many times in their original format but I also like the newer additions ... but to really enjoy the newer changes you have to first see it in its untouched original format ... you know what I mean.

How many versions of the same thing are going to come out. George done good with Star Wars and now he is making sure he can get paid every penny he can make from the fanatical supergeeks (like Cord and Harlan) .

I havent never seen the original originals, only the digitally remasted, CGI'd ones, may check these out since I havent seen the star wars films in a little while. But the original doesnt have that big monster hole in the ground thing in Empire Strikes Back, that was cool. Do the lightsabres look like torches (flashlights)?

Thanks for the heads up.

What did you think of the swordsmanship in the newer star wars films? I think they were loosely based on Samurai Bushido with added jedi style. Some bits were very Chinese Taichi long sword too.

Ah ayub, you simply werent there

in their original form, the movies look better- they have more character and better music. There are more henson creature shop creations, less CGI so the interaction between actor and 'thing' are much more real. They just work better as films- dont knock it till you tried it

the newer films fight style was ok. I particularly thought Darth Maul vs Qui Gon and Obi Wan was incredible, but the rest of it never quite matched that level (they killed him too soon IMO- he deserved a rematch).

None of the fights after had the 'emotional content' to get you involved. When Luke fights Vader it feels important, and the actors convey the life or death gravity of it very well. The later movies were more 'twirl sabre, look cool, force slap 20 droids.' Rinse, repeat.

Episode 3 was the best of them. Menace had young Anakin (the force may have been strong in him, but his acting skills were terrible). Attack of the clones was just too much talking to justify a very linear final set piece (padded it out badly), then Revenge of the Sith saved the 'second' franchise's a$$ by being good all the way through. The fact that critics were suprised shows how far the Star Wars rep had sunk with the prequels.

The old school star wars will never have the 'wow' factor they did when they came out. in today's world of CGI anything can be filmed, back then there simply was nothing like them in the movies. They made todays blockbusters possible.

While the recent films were somewhat entertaining they just didn't sit right with me. They didn't have the epic feel of the "original" films. While it was nice to see some things explained, not much of a reader here, i almost felt like the three newer films were only done as a means of explaining the original films and not in an effort to complete a series. One of the major bugs i have with the recent set is how everything looks more futuristic and technologically advanced than in the previous films which were supposed to take place much later. I understand the use of better technology to improve the "realism" but continuity should have some play here as well. While i would love to see the last three episodes done i would hope they would be done differently, less cartoonish. One thing i will not miss however is the little squares around all the ships and other special effects from the original trilogy.

I can fully see why he started with the trilogy he did though. If he had started from the beginning the series most likely would have died with the first movie.

I totally agree, the CGI's such as the stupid thing jumping around with the comical voice were too much. I hated that thing and have already wiped its name from my memory and hopefully soon I can wipe it all together as well.

You are also right, the first ones were epic on a grand scale that the newer ones will never touch. For the Empire Strikes Back I stood blocks down and around the corner. People were watching the movie which we arrived early enough for but there was no chance getting in as that was how many people there were lined up and for hours on end. Then to have people come out and say "Darth Vadar was Luke's father" drove you nuts but you wanted to see it none the less.

The Empire Strikes back was a movie though I had seen it I wanted to see it again immediately. I'd fantasize in my head being Luke Skywalker running through the marshes with Yoda on my back ... it was just that dang good. The cold planet and the battle that happened, my friend and I would play that in the snow on nights for hours. Like said earlier, there was nothing like it out there and for me was one of the true epic movies of all time and one of the first trilogies that I remember. You just had to be there ... and I was ... a kid ... and I ate it up.

The technological advancement of the newer movies though happened prior to the originals is just one of those things that you try to forget and explain away ... the same thing happened for Star Trek Enterprise and the orginal Star Trek series. Back then they had no idea what things were going to be like and it would have been absurd to make things look that poorly done now.

Its seems that with the later three they were trying to target a younger audience too, that ruined a lot of the star wars appeal for those who had seen the others long ago.

I admit, I was a fanatic after seeing it when I was 10. I threw away all of my 6 million dollar man stuff and converted.
I have the original full set in perfect condition trading cards (the ones with the puzzle on the back) that still smell like bazooka bubble gum. built all the original models that were available and still have vader's tie fighter (thats the only one I didn't later blow up with firecrackers after discovering dungeons&dragons).

yes, I was and still am...a geek.

Sadly enough many a year ago I passed on all of my Star Wars toys to a family that their kids had far and few toys. This also included my Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers toys plus my Hot Wheels collection. It was for a good cause so I hope they enjoyed them.

one Christmas, Luke was walking the deserts of Tattooine, when Vader appeared out of a sand-swirl.
Drawing his sabre luke stepped back warily- 'What do you want father?' he asked.

Vader held his gaze- 'Luke, i have to tell you something. For christmas, you have been given a Furby, an Xbox360, and some novelty socks'

Suspicious, Luke asked- 'How can you know this you devious sith?'

To which Vader answered- 'I have felt your presents'

only 15 weeks till Christmas boys and girls- ho ho ho!

The TRUE ending to "the Empire Strikes Back":
-----------------------------------------------------------
A furious lightsaber duel is underway. DARTH VADER is
backing LUKE SKYWALKER towards the end of the gantry. A quick
move by Vader, chops off Luke's hand! It goes spinning off
into the ventilation shaft. Luke backs away. He looks around,
but realizes there's nowhere to go but straight down.

Darth Vader: Obi Wan never told you what happened to your
father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!

Darth Vader: No... I am your father!

Luke: No, it's not true! It's impossible.

Darth Vader: Search your feelings... you know it to be
true...

Luke: NO!

Darth Vader: Yes, it is true.. and you know what else? You
know that brass droid of yours?

Luke: Threepio?

Darth Vader: Yes... Threepio... I built him... when I was 7
years old...

Luke: No...

Darth Vader: Seven years old? And what have you done? Look
at yourself, no hand, no job, and couldn't even levitate your
own ship out of the swamp...

Luke: I destroyed your precious Death Star!

Darth Vader: When you were 20! When I was 10, I
single-handedly destroyed a Trade Federation Droid Control
ship!

Luke: Well, it's not my fault...

Darth Vader: Oh, here we go... "Poor me... my father never
gave me what I wanted for my birthday... boo hoo, my daddy's
the Dark Lord of the Sith... waahhh wahhh!"

Luke: Shut up...

Darth Vader: You're a slacker! By the time I was you're age,
I had exterminated the Jedi knights!

Luke: I used to race my T-16 through Beggar's Canyon!

Darth Vader: Oh, for the love of the Emperor... 10 years
old, winner of the Boonta Eve Open... Only human to ever fly
a Pod Racer... right here baby!

Luke looks down the shaft. Takes a step towards it.

Darth Vader: I was wrong... You're not my kid... I don't
know whose you are, but you sure ain't mine...

Luke takes a step off the platform, hesitates, then plunges
down the shaft.

Darth Vader looks after him.

Darth Vader: Get a haircut!

what i find amazing is how deeply the star wars universe has become...i mean the different kinds of jedi stances and training and such, very interesting but maybe too in depth?

It goes much farther than that. There are different styles of Lightsaber fencing, few have mastered them all. One Jedi, who mastered them all leter started his own style...sound familiar? Oh, he was Mace Windu. See some on it at this Lightsaber Combat Page.

I'm a huge huge Star Wars fan, big as can be. I won't be buying these DVD's though. Take a look on amazon.com. Apparently they're crap. They used a really cheap method of transfering them to DVD and used 2.1 surround.
I'll stick with DVD Box set, my 25th Anniversary VHS Box Set, and my original copied from video store tapes box set.
And NEXT September I will have my Six movie box set that will have even more scenes.

The local Boys and Girls Club is offering a Star Wars themed introduction to fencing class called "Light-sabre fencing" or something for young-uns age 4 and up. Their poster managed to raise my eyebrow on my way out of the gym.

Eric, that was rather the point, these releases are how the films were shown when they first came out, no enhanced sound, no added CGI, or any of that, just the films as they were when they changed the face of cinema.

My copies arrived, and I wayched them all back to back yesterday. Absolutely magic i will never watch the updated versions again.

I know that Cord, but apparently, there was SOMETHING wrong because tons of people on the internet who were going crazy waiting for these are royally [censored] off.
Check out Amazon.com and imdb.com and you'll see what I mean.

I don't know, I never really read into what the fuss was about, I just know there was a BIG one.
I was just passing along the information.
Like I said, I would get these, but I already have the original VHS tapes, and a working VCR, and if I want, I can always copy them to dvd.

I wasn't having a go at you Eric, there are plenty of Star Wars fans out there who find no end of things to argue about. Is Chewbacca a male or female wookie? which is more irritating- ewoks or Jar Jar Binks? What exactly does go into Banther fodder? Should Mace Windu have been allowed to have a purple light sabre. The list goes on.

one of the big schisms has always been between the 'original' version trilogy fans, and the 're-mastered & updated' trilogy fans.

Those who prefer the updated versions point out that the changes and upgrades allowed Lucas to finaly show the story how he always wanted it to be.Fair enough.
The critics point out that the CGI has not integrated well and has altered the feel of the movies, that the change to the music in Jabba's bar, and the ewok victory party were unecessary and inferior, that the upgraded sound is only an improvement if you happen to have surround sound, and that the extra scenes spliced in here and there damage the pacing of the movies and smell of backtracking for continuity in relation to the newer episodes 1-3.

All fans, I think, will agree to being a little tired with all the repackaging, special editions and re-issues that are springing up left and right, and smell the stink of a 'cash cow' being over milked.

I have the updates on VHS box set from there initial release. i never bought the DVD's of them as frankly, I didnt like em too much. i knew that others felt the same and that it would be only a matter of time till the 'theatrical' versions came up for DVD release, and here they are, and they are great.

Next up will be the episode I-VI all extras, all version super duper blu ray box set next christmas. Best we all start saving now

Nope. The revised and updated versions are allegedly what lucas wants us to see, and he wanted no involvement in the release of the 'retro' cinematic versions- as far as he is concerned they are incomplete and inferior.

They are the versions that I and other ancient people remember going to the cinema to see however, and so have huge sentimental value to many.That 'wonder years' factor aside, I still maintain that they are better paced and generaly superior in their original form.

I just watched episode IV of this 'old' version. I was disappointed. it was NOT the version I saw in the theatre when I was a kid. several things were enhanced and there was even CGI added! I felt scammed for buying this. I can give some specific scenes:
* luke racing back home to save his aunt/uncle - the 'hovercar' (forgot the name of it) had computer touchup underneith to make it look more like it was hovering and less like it was frame-by-frame hand edited.

* right after bar scene - jabba was CGI - rediculous. they had no such animation in '78.

* same thing with the elephant looking things hanging around outside the bar.

* the engine of the falcon were enhanced in some scenes...some were not.

* short added scenes of desert CGI creatures - rediculous - not in '78.

and so on...

complete rip-off.

[edit] man, do I feel like a dummy...the kids noticed the 'Bonus Disc' was the one with the original version. lol
I checked some key parts and sure enough...just how I remembered it. (I saw it about 10 times in '78).

I already got a roasting from the kids...so go easy.

Oh Ed, as I was reading your bullet points i thought to myself, 'the dozy bugger's gone and put the wrong disk in!', and what do you know, my suspicions were confirmed

on the plus side, you have done a back to back 'pepsi challenge' between the versions, and i am sure subconciously that this is what you wanted to achieve, right?

Not having bought into the revamped versions at all, I am curious if the 'rereleased' originals have the scenes which were not shown in UK in '77, like the Biggs scenes and Jabba (who I seem to believe was a humanoid)?

Nope. Those scenes were put in in the first attempted update on vhs in the late 80's, along with the first remastered audio tracks.
The latest DVD re-releases are the exact movies that first hit the cinema's back in the day, right down to the last perfect second
