Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi will be packed up in a release prior to the theatrical release of Star Wars Episode VII late next year, according to the report.
"Our sources indicate that the project has been under way for quite some time, but it's been challenging because of some damage to the original negatives they are utilizing," states the report. "The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their complete, unaltered, original form without the redone special edition SFX."
Some in the Star Wars fan community have expressed skepticism. Bad-ass Digest ran an op-ed saying that rights issues would interfere with such a release. No doubt, many opinions will be exchanged on this issue before the facts emerge.
