EXTRA: Star Wars news worth blogging
I don't normally have two posts in one day, heck, I'm lucky to have two a week, but I thought this was important enough to share:
This September: Original Unaltered Trilogy on DVD
Star Wars purists around the world cry out in excitement, astonishment, and poor Chewbacca impersonations. Good-bye Hayden Christensen, hello Sebastian Shaw; Han shoots first, no more Gungans, and Boba Fett doesn't have to remind us of Attack of the Clones any more.
The original, unadulterated(as I like to say) Star Wars Trilogy, as it appeared in the 1977, 1980, and 1983 theatrical releases, will come to DVD for a limited time September 12th of this year and will be available through New Year's.
And in case you're skeptical, thinking that perhaps this report was fabricated, Lucasfilm is pulling an April Fools joke in the wrong month, or are just flabbergasted that GL is doing something right for once, then you can calm your anxieties and read about it here, here, here, and here as well.
