Format: DVD
I am so pleased be finally able to rediscover Star Wars the way I saw it for the first time but I can't felicitate George Lucas for delivering a so poor DVD edition. The least he should have done is restoring the movie properly so it would have looks better than an old VHS tape (after all, he is known to be so obsessive with hi-tech) and add some substantial extras such as archive documentaries, theatrical trailers, and even an introduction where he could have explained why he is so unhappy with this version and wanted to make it disappear (in that context, the presence of the 2004 cut on disk one will have found a reason to be included).

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.

The 1977 theatrical version of Star Wars in this set, which countless have been waiting years for, is an inferior transfer. It is being made from an old 1993 laserdisc master and it's NOT anamorphic/16x9 enhanced, which is completely unacceptable for a DVD in 2006. I certainly expected better from LucasFilm.

It's too bad that George Lucas makes Episode IV so precious. It has taken him to release this movie on DVD so long that many wouldbe/couldbe fans have begun to lose interest. There are other more recent films which compete to establish themselves in the psyche of the public (Lord of the Rings to name a recent example). Many kids and young adults weren't even around with the original Star Wars was released and don't know what the hype is all about and frankly many of them don't care. At this point, the longer George Lucas holds out, the more he is liable to lose money in sales. After all, despite what he says...it really is all about money.

Format: DVD
These are original to a degree but certain things such as original 'mistakes' have been altered, making it not 100% original. For example in the 80's when Star Wars was shown in theatres, and when I used to watch it on the Canadian movie channel ('Superchannel') and even on the 90's VHS boxed set which I have, one thing I always noticed (and looked for on this Limited edition) and that viewers could clearly see was the 'blue' rod that the Millenium Falcon model was mounted on when it entered the Death Star for the first time. Another was that Obi Wan's light saber would almost dissapear completely at certain angles (when he held it directly facing the camera)in his duel with Darth Vader. So, those have been altered for this new Limited edition not making it truely original. But since the 'original version' of Star Wars has not yet been officially released on DVD digitally mastered with THX, I imagine that there will be one more, final set of all 6 flims coming soon either in one gigantic box set, or seperate all in their 'original' form and digitally mastered with THX making Lucas one ungodly rich dude. It's kind of sickening really.

Now waitng for someone to dispute my post and insult me in some way as is typical on the internet in, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6...

Format: VHS Tape
I was shocked to read one of the first reviews posted here that Star Wars is "generally considered the greatest film ever made". Based on what??? The generally accepted "greatest film" among critcs and film historians is Citizen Kane. Star Wars is not in most Top 10s and isn't even the best in its own series (that would be Empire Strikes Back). The fact is that Star Wars is a pretty good movie, but hardly a trancendental experience. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm no longer 15 and have seen the movie so many times that it no longer seems magical. However, I've seen "Empire" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" many times and still think those are great movies.
At any rate, the Special Edition of the original trilogy are set for release on DVD later this year, which is good and bad. I think the slight improvements on "Empire" work in its favor and do nothing to wreck the charm of the film. "Jedi", which is a pretty mediocre film to start, is neither destroyed or improved by the new material. It's only one or two scenes, if I remember correctly.
"Star Wars", however, is another story. What an atrocity. Maybe the whole idea was bad to start because it just seems weird to look at pristine new CGI mixed with 20 year old fx. It's distracting and only makes the older footage look worse by comparison. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if the new stuff wasn't so awful. The rotten kiddie humor here certainly set a precendent for the idiocy to come in "Phantom Menace". I have no problem with children films, but why does Lucas have to aim so low? Maybe he should watch some Pixar movies(like Toy Story or Finding Nemo) to see that it is possible to make a sophisticated kiddie flick.
Even worse is what he did to Han Solo.
