Disney+ edit of Lucas edit of Star Wars 4K 3D Blu-ray DVD etc
Is it true you can’t see the original version of the first 3 Star Wars movies (by year of release) on any current format? screenrant.com <- says more at the link
Disney+’s versions of Star Wars are not the original theatrical cuts (sadly), but they aren’t the 1997, 2004, or 2011 versions either (thankfully).
Instead, the platform has the 4k version George Lucas began working on in 2010 as part of a 3D edition intended to be released on DVD.
Following Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, the 4k project was left aside and has now been picked up by Disney+.
This version is an extension of the 2011 Blu-ray edition that used the original prints and took some extra time to work on some of the changes from previous editions and add other things as well – such as Greedo’s final word “maclunkey”.
