Star Wars.com is reporting that George Lucas is reneging on his oft stated promise to never release the original theatrical versions of the first Trilogy with a limited edition release this Fall. Okay, so nerds like me should be happy he’s finally relenting and giving us the version he should have damn well knew we wanted in the first place, right? Wrong. Because the original films are being released as bonus material on the 2nd disc of the Special Ed versions.
Let me get this straight: In order for me to have the original trilogy on DVD, I have to buy a copies of your shitastic CGI wank fest versions, which (thanks to the aforementioned promise never to release the originals) I already own?
George Lucas, you’re a gawdamn manipulative jerk.
