Star Wars Fans Rejoice! The 'Real' Original Trilogy is Coming to Blu-Ray (Maybe) | Fanboys Anonymous
Un. Bee. Leavable. This is earth-shattering news for me, since I've been on a Star Wars rumor tear lately, apropos to my life at the moment. Yeah, I used apropos in a sentence. Pretty cool, huh? Anyway, according to a report by, Disney is planning to release the original Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray and DVD to coincide with the theatrical release of Episode VII next year.

That's right, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi will be seeing the light of day pretty soon, finally, after all this time. Wait, did a question mark just pop over our heads? Will, buddy, they already released the whole saga a while back in all formats. No, knuckleheads, I'm talking about the unaltered, non-special edition greatness being released at long last.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, George Lucas. How d'you like them apples? Even with all of his interference over the years and the countless attempts at making the movies "perfect," we now get what fans have always wanted: the actual films themselves. Well, it's about damn time. It won't be the smoothest sailing in the world, because they say the original negatives they are working with are in bad shape. Way to preserve your legacy, George.

It's only speculation at this point, and nothing has been confirmed, but I think it's a safe bet this is where they are going. It will be a great way to touch base with hardcore fans of the franchise right before the release of the latest film in the saga. Why wouldn't they do it? It makes perfect sense to get this done as soon as possible to get it out by the end of year in 2015.

So will this happen or is the rumor nothing but wishful thinking on the part of the fans? If true, what kind of special features do people want to see? Sound off below.
