Ugh, I can't take it anymore. HAN DID NOT SHOOT FIRST. Han only shot. Greedo never even fired in the original version, Han just straight up capped him...like a boss.

@mgherter: Well, it looks like all the versions that are out there are priced kind of crazily.

This is one:
http://www.amazon.com/Star-Trilogy-Widescreen-Theatrical-Edition/dp/B001EN71DG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1353507236&sr=8-2&keywords=star+wars+theatrical

but obviously is one of the most overpriced versions. Some of the versions are a bit cheaper that contain both the special edition and the theatrical edition, but they're still kind of crazy.

It's sad that they they can't even be bothered to print the DVDs anymore. Maybe Disney will do it right...

@f263u: "Keep looking up. Now that the Lucasfilm Empire is out of George's Rebel hands, just a matter of time until the original trilogy gets re-released. Disney will bring it out of the "Vault" in a couple of years."

Ha! You think Disney is going to release the original dirty scruffy-looking scumbag herfherder that Han was? I seriously don't think Disney will ever release the theatrical versions, they love doctoring and cheesy CG every bit as much as Lucas... Han will never shoot first on BR...

@starbob: Can you PM or post the link to the theatrical DVD's? I've managed to confuse myself a little looking around, and would like to corroborate or deny that I've found the right thing.

It's sad that this is one of the few movies where the theatrical version is the one everyone wants the most. Most other movies you're looking to get the super special remastered mega extended version... but with Star Wars you get the neutered cheesy dated CG effects version that does more to distract than it ever did to improve.

However, I was looking around on Amazon a while back and I seem to remember finding a DVD set of the original series theatrical version. I'll look for it.

edit: Yeah I guess there are a lot of theatrical on DVD but not blu ray. It would be amazing to see the theatrical version get one of those HD makeovers like Star Trek TNG did.

So this also has the horrific enya-like ending in ROTJ? Ugh...

Keep looking up. Now that the Lucasfilm Empire is out of George's Rebel hands, just a matter of time until the original trilogy gets re-released. Disney will bring it out of the "Vault" in a couple of years.

If Han doesn't shoot first, it's not the "Original Trilogy".

Yeah this is a great deal, but only if you want the godawful doctored versions. Wish he had included the theatrical editions as "special features" like with the regular DVDs

vote-for4vote-against

Yes, these are the horrible what-was-Lucas-thinking re-edits, and not the originals.

@chronosquall14: Correct. There is no Blu-Ray release of the original trilogy theatrical versions.

Unless I'm mistaken, isn't this the super-doctored version? The shooting is simultaneous, Vader screams NOOOO, all that jazz?

Who shoots first in this set?
