I seriously doubt this is really the last time we will got the chance to own the original versions of the original trilogy on DVD knowing only fools never change their mind and how much money can be made by re-releasing the same movie in many different ways (Lucas is not a fool and he is a tough businessman). So, if you are Star Wars maniac like me you will enjoy these Limited Editions anyway despite their flaws but if you are a "moderated" fan and already got the 2004 Box set you should wait until a definitive DVD edition see the day of light to upgrade.
ORGINAL,REALLY?:This is said to be the original movies,but still some of the mistakes like the blue rod wich held the Millenium Falcon model,that were present in the original version are not present here,making of them not so original,but i beleve that those are minor changes that don`t affect the movie in any way and doesn`t prevent it of being good.
THE MOVIE ITSELF:1977`s Episode IV:A New Hope is the first movie of the Star Wars series,introducing us to the classic cast of characters that were Luke,Leia,Han,R2,C3PO,Obi-Wan and Chewie as well as the evil Darth Vader,the force,lightsabers and basicly Star Wars itself."A New Hope" is the strong foundation of Star Wars,a great enjoyable movie from beggening to end.While it might seem dated compared to the prequel trilogy in terms off sounds and effects it remains amazing.
TWO DISCS?:It is a very nice option to choose between two versions of the same movie,the original version and the special edition version.That way you can choose wich you want to watch and compare the two releases,but why didn`t they make a box set ainvailable as well as the separate movies,it would have contained the three movies togheter,seems like a no-brainer to me.

SPECIAL EDITION or no SPECIAL EDITION - STAR WARS is indeed that. Unlike the previous reviewers, I am not going to get carried away by reviewing the entire trilogy but by comparing the original and special editions as this review appropriately applies to STAR WARS: EPISODE 4 - A NEW HOPE only!
Computer graphics technology does indeed give STAR WARS a wider depth not just for the old but new generations of fans to enjoy. Look very carefully around the Rebel Blockade craft, there are more computer terminals around. The sky is darker in some scenes on the Tatooine landscape, and a more closer view of the Sandcrawler looming over the dunes, and a better view outside Obi-Wan's chateau are among the many changes available. Plus more alien creatures roaming the population of Mos Eisley. It's great, but owes more homage to the slapstick humor excessively expressed in the Prequel films.
What remains missing that is only available from Alan Dean Foster's storybook novel (which he wrote under the pen name George Lucas) is the scene where Luke Skywalker is watching the space battle up in the sky with his binoculars and rushing off to tell his friends about it, and the scene where Biggs bids Luke farewell in the sand dunes.Read more ›

These are original to a degree but certain things such as original 'mistakes' have been altered, making it not 100% original. Read morePublished on April 27 2007 by Matt Hughes
Of all the Star Wars movies, this is my ultimate favorite. I like this movie because this is where I had my first encounter with Luke, Han, and Yoda. Read morePublished on Sept. 16 2006 by Brian A.

Ah, c'est la vie, the best movie of the trilogy, followed closely by "The Empire Strikes Back". "Star Wars" is a classic tale of friendship, loyalty, and bravery. Full of action. Read morePublished on June 6 2004
I much rather want to think about the great theme music by Meco (for which I am giving the 2 stars) than the almost painful visual roller-coaster ride of a movie it came with. Read morePublished on May 9 2004 by Michael Mathena
