Star Wars fan has been anxiously waiting to see a theatrical rerelease of the unaltered versions of the original Star Wars trilogy. Rogue One director Gareth Edwards said he watched a 4k restoration of Star Wars: A New Hope, so that means it exists in the wild. So the question remains if Lucasfilm has any plans to release it unaltered version of Star Wars.
Making Star Wars is reporting that the unaltered original trilogy could be released this year for the 40th anniversary and it might come out in many formats of the movies.
The site says:
Over the last month the evidence and tips have been piling up that the unaltered original trilogy will be re-released this year for the 40th anniversary in various formats. Several sources have let us know it was coming and it appears to actually be on the way this time.
I have no idea if there is any truth to this rumor but I really want it to be real because every fan is waiting for it for years and I think this year it will be out. We’ll find out if this rumor is true very soon. Let’s just hope it will come out this year and soon.
