Wow. I’ve never seen so many submissions in the queue before. Here’s the official press release.
The Cheapskate’s Dilemna
I don’t own any version of either trilogy yet (poor student), so I’m faced with a dilemna. Do I grab one of the cheap 2004 editions that will inevitably be sold on eBay, or do I wait to afford the real thing? Of course, maybe by the time I graduate yet another version will have been released…
Re: The Cheapskate’s Dilemna
Correct, there just has to be a Blu-Ray version of this later… Let us hope they rescan the original trilogy in 4K or better, so it is future-format-proof.
So buy a cheap one of eBay, wait for HDTV release later :)
I think we all just figured out how Lucas is gonna pay for those two TV shows that are coming.
