Now, I'm not old enough to know if it actually is the originals, but the three from this release http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Epis.../dp/B000FQJAJG
have the Theatrical Versions. And I have watch all three and they are different from the 2004 releases.
Not to mention that he'll just go "this timeline is canon you're wrong if you think otherwise".
George Lucas troll of the year 2012.
How are they going to stop Anakin from becoming Vader without the whole "Oh hey, you're going to become evil later on in life, don't do anything stupid"
I'm predicting that they will either chop his penis off or give his wife an abortion. There is no way 3 bounty hunters can kill a Sith Lord.
in his commentary track for the phantom menace's re-release in ~3d~, harry plinkett said he got stephen hawking to watch the film, or asked him what he thought of the prequels or something, and stephen hawking said that mankind should redirect an asteroid towards earth and launch the original unaltered trilogy out into space b/c that's the only way to permanently destroy the prequel trilogy
unless george lucas launches the prequel trilogy first... fuck
i think it would actually be quite interesting to see this alternate timeline.
I never expected him to do this.
I expected him to edit Hayden's face onto Luke sometime in the future, but not this.
who cares if it does happen? we have all seen the movies anyway and im excited for any starwars i can get!
Oh well, whatever happens, happens. I'll still have my old original trilogy VHS tapes and nobody can take them from me.
YOU HEAR ME GEORGE, I'LL HAVE THE LAST LAUGH YOU GREASY FUCK
Seems like a rather silly idea. Even now, I really doubt Lucas would think of doing that.
And even if it did, my years from being a geek on the Star Wars Expanded Universe means I'm familar enough with the matter of story canonicity that this show would easily be considered as another alternate universe story, no biggie.
I never liked Star Wars like most did.
Well this is fine. I've got my originals, prequels, and now I get to see more stuff in the form of the alternates. I like it.
Well George Lucas can fuck right off.
Isn't this what they did with the new Star Wars movie?
Weird how he turned into a shit movie maker in the latest years after making amazing films
I mean whats going on?
What series was more ruined? Star Wars or Resident Evil?
Well on the bright side, even if George killed the timeline of the original trilogy, we would still have the Yuzhan Vong War and maybe Darth Krayt taking over the Universe. That's pretty cool right?
george: "lets make a show about jar-jar for 12 seasons"
tv exec: "lets fucking do it!"
The prequels were the result.
Let him release all the new bullshit he wants, but he can never actually tarnish the original trilogy itself. We'll all have our own copies of the true original format of the trilogy in our homes either on VHS or older DVDs to enjoy the right way. Just ignore any of the crap Lucas decides to release if you don't want to include it in the Star Wars series.
I've got the original trilogy on VHS, haven't got a working video player though :(
I'm just waiting for the news article on him complaining about the amount of people pirating the films when they stop selling the DVDs.
"Hmm. I don't want to make Episode 7."
"Let's go back and change the old amazing plot so I have something new to create."
He takes the J.J. Abrams way out, retcons the whole thing and remakes it.
screw you Lucas I'm going to go grab my glasses and watch my vhs copies of The Original Trilogy.
