The Latest “Disney’s Going To Release The Unaltered STAR WARS” Rumor

Star Wars

OK, this is one of those stories that pops up every now and then, perhaps more fueled by fans hopes than by any actual basis. However, there may be a ring of truth to it this time.

Empire has tweeted out that director John Landis stated at an unspecified Q & A, that he was told that Disney will indeed be releasing the original, unedited version of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Now, before everyone gets too crazy, let us remember that we have traveled down this road before. As I said, this is often a rumor fueled more by fan hopes than by anything that might actually be happening. Remember that for years Lucas himself has stated that the original, un-Special Editions of the classic Star Wars trilogy would never be released again. Of course, once Disney bought Lucasfilm, all bets were off, so there may be some truth to it this time. Just don’t go betting the rent yet.
