It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking
from a hidden base, have won their first victory
against the evil Galactic Empire.
During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret
plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR,
an armored space station with enough power to destroy
an entire planet.
Pursued by the Empire's sinister agents, Princess Leia
races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen
plans that can save her people and restore freedom
to the galaxy...
No episode IV. No A new hope.
Just like that. Just the way it was screened back in 1977. Its the original version of the original movie of the original trilogy, in the latest DVD edition. The Star Wars Trilogy the way you remember it.
Just two days ago, the new DVD set, including the three original released versions of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the jedi, was available in stores near you. And yesterday, I already had it in my place. Am I a geek, I rather be called a fan.
Its awesome, its cool, its vintage, its... so old. The effects, the sound, the film itself. It just looks so 70ish. I love it. No weird CGI creatqures, no musical scenes, no Greedo shooting first, just the story as it was supposed to be. Even the cardboard soldiers at the end of Star Wars. Its awesome. And its mine.
Still need to go through the audio comentary and the extra features. But it is already a great addition to my DVD collection and to my SW collection.
What else does Mr George Lucas has left for us in the future... TV show and Animated series for shure... And then?
Lests just hope something else will come after these!
