I have just read the news that George Lucas plans to release the unaltered original Star Wars trilogy. I am glad that we will get to see the original unaltered movies again, however, George Lucas should have done this a long time ago. He should have done it when he released the special editions on DVD. No. George Lucas, time and time again, takes advantage of the large fandom that Star Wars has. He has taken this beloved, very American franchise, an American heritage even, and he has continued to rape it again and again for every single penny/dime he can get out of it. He told us we would never see the original unaltered SW trilogy again!! Many people that would have held out for the unaltered versions felt like they had no other choice but to get the "special" editions. And now, alot of those same people will fork out their money for the unaltered trilogy. It's been, what, decades since people have legally watched the unaltered original SW trilogy??? It's a disgrace! George Lucas has taken advantage of the love many people hold for SW. He took the original trilogy, edited it, put in "improvements", and told us that this is now the official version. Never before, NEVER, has a director so massively raped his own fan base.
