With Star Wars Day coming up on May 4th, I wanted to let fans and purists of Star Wars (who have never seen Star Wars as it was originally released in theaters in 1977) know, that a loyal fan base has been working over the years (with various different fan edit releases) to bring that ability to fruition. You can now see Star Wars and Return of the Jedi in 4K and as they were originally shown in theaters with the first release. If you don't have a 4K tv, 1080p versions are also available. After Star Wars was released, George Lucas went back in the early 1990's and started working on editing the movies (the original trilogy) by adding in new scenes, deleting others, and adding new CGI affects that were not originally part of the movies. In George's Special Edition release in 1997 (I believe) Hans no longer shot first, which it why you may have seen or heard the line "Hans shot first" so many, many times over the years. George's reworking of the original trilogy is considered a bastardization of a wonderful story that was originally seen in theaters in 1977, 1980, and 1983. You can read more about the Harmy Despecialized releases, as well as the Silver Screen Edition and 4K release by Team Negative1 at the link I provided. Without the loyal fan base, the original trilogy releases would still be lost (probably forever) and generations of fans would never know just now wonderful the trilogy was before George started hacking it up.
