Also, as a lifelong Star Wars fan those special editions are a real sore spot for me. Just don't want to even go down that road because I will end up sounding like an elitist prick no matter how I say it.

They're a sore spot for many. I told myself that Lucas was entitled to do what he wanted with his movies, for better or worse.

Now the belong to Disney! Unless you own shares they sure as hell don't belong to us.

Interesting how Lucas said that his "vision" was better achieved with the SE films.

In all seriousness the only thing that pisses me off is that the original versions no longer get re-released. I would like an official Blu-Ray of the original home video versions. I know we'll likely never get the REAL original theatrical releases but the original home video versions are good enough for me. I just don't want all the garbage they added in the '97 special editions. ****ing awful.

Thankfully I do still have them in several different copies, as well as the despecialized Blu-Ray. Just would like to see an official Blu-Ray release.

That was the hope when Disney bought LucasFilm but I suspect Lucas made them sign an agreement not to release those because.....

I think Lucas is no longer part of the equation here.

From what I understood last time I read about it, was that 20th Century Fox retained the rights to distribute sales of at least the first Star Wars movie A New Hope in its original form FOREVER. Even when Fox's distribution rights reverted to Disney in May 2020, they still would retain rights to that first movie because of how the original agreement with Lucas was made back in the 70's. So that makes releasing a trilogy set a problem for Disney. They would still have to buy the rights for that.

As far as I know that issue is the hold up on any movement of releasing the original versions again. I know there were also claims of the original negatives being in a poor and unrecoverable state but I believe that's been debunked.

Quote:
The negative is conformed to the Special Edition edit, because there can only be one original negative. So, technically speaking, the negative assembly of the originals does not exist. But it would be very easy to simply put the original pieces back in and conform it to the original versions. Actually, in a theoretical modern restoration, they would just scan the original pieces and make a digital edit, especially since disassembling the negative puts a lot of wear on it. There are also secondary sources, such as separation masters and interpositives, both of which were used to make duplicate pieces to repair parts of the original negative for the 1997 release. So, basically, the official Lucasfilm stance is a lot of crap, designed to confuse people who don't have a thorough knowledge of how post-production works.
Good article on this from Ars Techinca.

Hmm, actually I am not sure if Disney's acquisition of Fox media also includes the rights 20th Century Fox retained of that first Star Wars movie. I haven't been keeping up with this so I will have to read up.

[EDIT] OK yes, my knowledge was way out of date. Disney owns the original film distribution rights, acquired from 20th Century Fox back in 2017.

There was a guy who created a really clean 4k restoration by scanning several different film reels and super-imposing them over each other. Really amazing results.



Start at 7:00 to see how he made it.
