I think it might be good to have a dedicated Star Wars thread, not just related to the movies, but for "everything Star Wars". Hoping such discussion can go on in a civilized way and following the release of the saga on Blu-ray, I'm under the impression that there is always something to discuss for the Star Wars geek in all of us It could be a way to keep the Blu-ray thread on topic and bring the non-technical aspects of the discussion over here.
So I'll start by saying this: after someone once again pointing out his desire to get the original trilogy on Blu-ray on the other forum, I'm really not sure we'll ever see that day happen. There's no reason to NOT do it today, other than George Lucas simply not wanting to do it. There will always be money to be made with Star Wars. The 3D versions are underway, which means a new Blu-ray set most likely on the table as well, + many more anniversary editions to come. There will always be a reason to buy a new release of Star Wars, if anything the simple fact that home video technology continues to advance. So why not including the unaltered OT already... I think it's just that George Lucas really really wants us to forget about the initial, original version of these films. To him, Star Wars is now one big film split in 6 parts.
