Quote from: KingIsaacLinksr on October 31, 2012, 04:39:37 PMOne concern I heard being murmured around the Interwebs is that this gives Disney a lot of media control and some were concerned about how much control that gave one company. I don't share the same concerns, but it was an interesting thing to hear.

Quote from: Jobydrone on November 01, 2012, 11:57:18 AMThere's also lots of excitement and chatter surrounding the possibility that Bluray or DVD releases of the Original Trilogy untouched by GL's subsequent edits may now be forthcoming.

Quote from: Jobydrone on November 01, 2012, 12:45:00 PMThere's a huge amount of money left on the table from not releasing those films in their untouched editions, and you're right the only reason is because Lucas doesn't want them out there. But Disney owns them now, not Lucas. I don't believe anyone at Disney is as attached to GL's vision of the OT as he is, or would be willing to eschew all those dollars based on one man's ideas or vision. I also find it hard to imagine a "no unedited version" clause was added to the 4.5 billion dollar deal but as you say you never know. I predict a DVD/Bluray announcement within the next 6 months.
Quote from: Bryancd on November 01, 2012, 02:49:39 PMRico is correct, Fox still has the rights for the first 6 films. And I think the size of the market out there for the original films unaltered is miniscule in the grand scheme of things and hardly worth the effort.
