Well I hate to rain on the possibility of the original cut of the first 3 star wars but it appears that Fox News Corp (Ruppert Murdock), who owns 20th Century Fox Movie Studio, owns the distribution rights in all perpetuity to the original Star Wars The New Hope. Fox News Corp also owns the rights to the other five Star Wars worldwide until 2020 then the rights for the five Star Wars will transfer to Disney Corp. Any deal to redo the originals or release the first 6 movies after 2020 will have to include Fox News Corp going along with it as they will hold the rights to A New Hope. Any release of the 6 originals will be up to Fox News Corp up until 2020.
Same problem for the Indy Movies excpet that will have to involve Paramount.
I suspect that the original negatives to the first 3 movies will have to be redone in order to release the unmolested versions as Lucas created new masters when he made the changes almost 2 decades ago. I had both the DVD and VHS copies of the originals and they did not look to good. It looks like Disney Corp will have to offer up a large sum of money to get New Hope if Murdock is willing to sell it.
Personally I think Disney will flop with this as the other rights they bought really haven't produced big results after they purchased them. What was Pixars last blockbuster release? I think it was WALL E. I haven't bought any movies made from Marvell characters since V for Vendetta and before that Constantine. The only Disney titles I have bought is the rereleases of the classic Walt Disney movies. The only benefit Disney brings to the table is that they do really good restorations of the film libraries for Blu ray releases. Maybe after 2020 they will do stellar restorations of the first three originals.
A paragraph from the article I linked says it all to why Lucas sold to Disney and what Disney really intends to get from Star Wars:

Lucas’s decision to sell his company to Disney--not Fox--makes sense: Disney has the theme parks, merchandising and licensing operations to take full advantage of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones characters. "Disney is the perfect place,” says the Lucas associate. ”At Fox they just make movies. Fox doesn't have theme parks and huge brands. This is a good fit."
