I was just at Costco and picked up all three of the original, unaltered Star Wars (episodes IV, V and VI). Each has two discs and includes the original theatrical release (1977, 1980 and 1983) along with the Digital Remastered Version (who cares). Now the important thing to remember is that these were not supposed to be released until the 12th (today is the 1st). $18.99 each, they are a welcome suprise after a month of heavy studying for today’s ARE exam (for my architect’s licence). I’ll have some pictures and commentary later but check out your local Costco to see if you can get your copies early too.
For the first time ever and for a limited time only, the enhanced versions of the Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi will be available individually on DVD. Plus, these 2-Disc DVD’s will feature a bonus disc that includes, for the first time ever on DVD, the original films as seen in theaters in 1977, 1980 and 1983.
