Re: The Original Trilogy General Discussion Thread.
It wouldn't surprise me at all if Lucas fixed it so the original versions will never be released again in any format. He doesn't want anyone remembering they exist and Disney probably didn't care if the deal they signed meant the original versions would stay buried. They're focusing on the future and know that today's kids, the ones who'll be buying SW for their kids ten and twenty years from now, don't know or care about the original versions. All they know are the SEs and the SW cartoon shows and won't miss the original versions if they're never released again.
I'd love for the original versions to come out some day but I very much doubt it'll happen. Lucas didn't want it to and he had the final say.
