If you mean ANH, ESB, and ROTJ in whatever form Lucas decides to warp them into, the date is Sept. 21, according to Amazon. If you mean the true original episides, without any extra lucas-isms, last I heard they are never going to see a public release again.

Hey, I'm hoping that the 'special edition' scene's will be optional... baby, baby, hold together...
Though there was some good new stuff, I'm afraid I can't forgive Lucas for the new Jabba's band song. Ugh.

The song itself wasn't that bad on its own, but it didn't fit in too well with the rest of the movie, especially the tone of the Jabba scenes. 

I wouldn't mind as much if the DVDs were the theatrically released Special editions, but if all the rumors of changes made to fit the movies in with the prequels are true (as they are looking to be more and more), then I may really have to re-consider that purchase. Those kinds of changes just stink of sloppy filmmaking. Why take the effort to try to fit the new movies seamlessly into the old ones when you can mutilate the classics to whatever form you wish! Yay! (Nobody should have told Lucas that computers could be used on movies).

Fortunately, I have those on VHS already.

Memo to George Lucas: If changes have to be made to the originals to make them fit the prequels, maybe that should be taken as a sign that something is wrong with the prequels.

I saw the "Special Edition" of the first film.  It was appalling.  I never saw the the "Special Edition" versions of the other two, and I don't plan to.  I'll stick to the originals, thanks.

I don't need any prequels, either.

Once I get them all on DVD(When episode 3 is on DVD)I'll do a Star Wars Marathjon!

Thats really a shame. I just wish someone would mail George Lucas a copy of the south park episode with him and spielberg in it (in which they try to redo Raiders of the Lost Arc). Maybe that'll give him the kik in the nuts he needs to straighten out his mind.

He's already seen it. Apperantly it changed he and Spielberg's minds about making changes to The Indiana Jones Trilogy when it was released on DVD.

Augh, adding that Greedo shot just made things so much worse! Give me the original 3 movies anyday. However I would prefer to watch the Special Editions  than sit through epsiodes 1 + 2.

I've heard John Williams ripped of the Star Wars theme, is that true?

As for the true origional three, I also have them on VHS, now I'm thankful I've got then since they will never be released again.

Sounds like what Lucas is doing to the origional three is the same thing Speilberg did the Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Speilbers should have just made a version with everything in it except that inside the mothership scene.

from today's IMDb news:

 According to Video Store magazine the changes include digitally changing the faces of at least two characters to make them gibe with those in the recent films. Steve Sansweet, head of fan relations for LucasFilm, described the set as versions of the films "as George Lucas sees them today."

I have a question for the uber fans. Can anyone tell me what (if any) the difference between a Sith and a dark Jedi is? From what I've read/heard in EU they seem pretty much the same to me.

A Sith is a member of the Order of the Sith and a Dark Jedi is basically just a corrupted Jedi. From what I've seen that seems to be the case. Don't quote me on it, though.

I think the Sith have a Uniform,which is a cloak.That one guy from episode I,the Sith lord. and Darth Maul had a cloack,too.
Also,in Episodes V and VI,Palpatine had on the same cloack.

Yes, everyone knows that cloaks are simply badass. M0le's definition sums up pretty well what is a difficult question though, I would say that both Sith and Dark Jedi use the force in similar ways, but the Sith follow the rules of a strict organisation whereas Dark Jedi are usually freelance. I think.

Well, the title for episode 3's been annouced.


Bet you didn't see that one coming, eh?   wink

If you absolutely must see it confirmed with your own eyes, take a peak.

Oh, and despite the fact that was more then a month ago, M0le's explanation for the difference between Sith and Dark Jedi is correct. The Sith are a specific order of Dark Side users. Dark Jedi  are just any Jedi who's gone bad.

Darth Maul, for instance, is a Sith Lord.
Count Dooku is both a Sith Lord and a Dark Jedi.
Assaj Ventess (from the Clone Wars series) is a Dark Jedi.
Jerec and his cronies (from the PC game Jedi Knight) are Dark Jedi.

That title is semi-disappointingly predictable. But at least Lucas softened the blow by saying "the fans have already guessed it" in an interview a while back. Also, at least the title is good, and makes sense, unlike most of the other speculated titles.

And I should mention that I love the fact that they've made a real logo for it, with the retro shirts and all. I hope they actually market the movie as Revenge of the Sith, instead of Star Wars: Episode III. Marketing the movies as episode numbers is so boring.

Well, I have to admit that "Revenge of the Sith" is a much better title than "Attack of the Clones," but just as original.  Unless they're trying to build similarity to the supposed "Revenge of the Jedi" title for Episode 6. However, I don't think Lucas is that clever anymore.

Jeff, I'd really like to see the marketing for this film.  I think everyone agrees that the last two films did not set the world on fire, nor did they inspire children into geekhood like the originals did with us.  Everyone who sees Episode 3 will do so "just because."  It'll be silly if it's hyped up like the second coming, when we all know it'll probably stink.

It's sad. There's so much Episode 3 has to offer - Anakin in the Vader suit, destruction of all the Jedi, birth of the Empire - but we all pretty much know Lucas will disappoint us.  At least when it's been released, we can kiss our remaining SW fandom good bye.

I hear that the DVD releases of the old Star Wars movies will replace some original actors to have better continuity with the prequels: Ian McDiarmid will play the Emperor in The Empire Strikes Back (with altered dialogue), Temura Morrison will do the voice of Boba Fett, and Hayden Christensen will appear at the very end of Return of the Jedi instead of Sebastian Shaw.

George lucas is a hack and a greedy S.O.B. first of all he made the " FIRST 3" phantnom menace, clone wars, and revenge of sith, and they suck alot, acting is poor and have nothing to do with anything equivalent to star wars. and First of all the best two star wars " emire strikes back and Return of the jedi" werent even directed by Lucas, thats might be a reason they were so great. i have no expectation to enjoy myself to watch this next craptastic movie execpt to get a hard laugh from its ridicaluos characters to unbelivabke tie to the "real first 3"(FH,ESB,RJ)

sorry to all star wars fan, just had to say my thing, complain at boarding@wowmail.com, PLease COMPLAIN SO I COULD PROVE YOU WRONG!!!

"The Emperor" is in The Empire Strikes Back, but not Ian McDiarmid.  The original version is actually a woman with another voice dubbed in.

And those appearances could all be a hoax, but I've seen them along with menu screens from the DVDs, so it's a very detailed hoax if it is one.

There was a pic of him in the RotJ scene posted somewhere here at PEEL a few months ago. I dunno if it was real but i hope to god it wasnt.

EDIT: Duh, it was on the previous page of this thread.

So you have seen all three of the prequels, then?
