In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm announced they are finally releasing the three original Star Wars films on DVD as their original theatrical versions. Says Lucasfilm:
See the title crawl to 'Star Wars' before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion-control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and, yes, see Hans Solo shoot first.
The DVDs, available only from September 12 to the end of the year, will be released individually as two disc sets, each containing the original version and the 2004 renovations. It should be noted that despite the announced return of such fan favorites as Han shooting first, it's still unclear if the legendary "Chewie's Testicles" scene will find its way back to the film.
