New Hope for Original Star Wars on Blu-ray?

John Landis Says It Will Happen

Not every fan likes that George Lucas reworked his original Star Wars trilogy. They want the pure form from the late 70's and early 80's. And that doesn't only concern the "Who shot first?"-controversy but also many optical adjustments and extensions. While the original versions already exist on DVD, the Blu-ray editions so far only have the modern ones. Rumors that this would change have existed earlier but now John Landis weighs in on it after he spoke with Lucas.

Empire Magazine:

At a Q&A tonight John Landis dropped that Disney are finally going to re-release the theatrical cuts of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Apparently George mentioned it when last they spoke. Somebody put Yub Nub on. Let the celebrations commence!

With Episode VII starting in cinemas in December and the Blu-ray coming in early 2016 that would probably a good time to fulfill the wishes of many fans.
