The Return of Assassin Han?

Thursday, May 04, 2006 | 4:32 pm

Could it be true? A quote from The Rumour Mill that certainly hits home with my blog's demographic. ;)
So check this out Force fans. This is no joke and we've bent over backwards to confirm it's the real deal. Our very best industry sources have been checking in over the last couple of days - independently, I might add - with word that Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox are finally going to be releasing the original theatrical versions of the Star Wars films on DVD... good old regular DVD... sometime in the second half of this year. You read that right - the original THEATRICAL versions. THIS year. The ones that George Lucas for a time insisted no longer existed. Look for the films to be sold as individual 2-disc sets (there may be a box set as well), and look for the official announcement to come soon, likely in the next week. Don't expect a Blu-ray Disc (or an HD-DVD) version this year however, but still... this is VERY, very cool news indeed. Kudos to Lucasfilm and Fox for finally giving fans of these films what they've been craving on DVD since 1997. Finally, people will have a choice as to which version they want to watch on 5" disc. Awesome news! (5/3/06)

Finally, fans will be able to buy these movies in yet another version. Personally, I'm waiting for the Reservoir Dogs version in which Han and Greedo shoot each other simultaneously.

Shocho took the words out of my mouth. How can one guy get away with selling us the same material over and over and over again? I just heard about the 3-D versions. Oy! May the Schwartz be with you.

Thank christ I have never bought any of the previous DVDs! I may now consider a purchase in 3-4 years when the Blu-Ray Hologram Edition comes out...
