Star Wars Original Theatrical Release DVD

It's the holy grail for 'Star Wars' fans: the original theatrical releases of 'A New Hope,' 'The Empire Strikes Back' and 'Return of the Jedi' on DVD and Blu-ray. Right now, if you want to watch the theatrical versions of the original trilogy - without all the crap from the 1997 special editions - you have to own one of the original VHS copies, or find a bootleg rip of the 1985 Laserdisc. But, with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' headed to theaters from their new home at Disney, could the original theatrical releases finally be commercially available for the first time in over 20 years?

‘Star Wars Rebels’ Creator Simon Kinberg Talks Classic Characters and Capturing the Tone of the Original Trilogy

Rebels

Not only did Simon Kinberg write and produce the upcoming superhero spectacular, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' and its sequel 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and 2015's 'Fantastic Four' reboot -- he's also the creator and executive producer of 'Star Wars Rebels,' a new animated series that takes place between the events of 'Revenge of the Sith' and 'A New Hope.' (Kinberg is also involved in the development of the yet-to-be-announced 'Star Wars' live action movies.)

Kinberg is currently promoting the aforementioned 'Days of Future Past,' but the subject of 'Rebels' did come up (okay, yes, because I asked about it) and Kinberg explains what it's like to write for characters who appeared in the original trilogy (it's rumored Lando Calrissian plays at least a small role) and threading the needle between the people who love the Original Trilogy and the people who love the prequels.

‘Star Wars: Episode 7 – Greedo Gets His Groove Back’ and More ‘Conan’ Alternate Titles

TBS

Not sold on the rumored 'Star Wars: Episode 7' title, 'The Ancient Fear'? It's okay, you're not the only one; even director J.J. Abrams doesn't seem too excited to slap such a moniker on his first 'Star Wars' film (though, this is the guy who made a film called 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' so it certainly could be worse).

‘Star Wars’ is Plotting “At Least” Three Spinoff Films

Ever since George Lucas sold 'Star Wars' to Disney a year and a half ago, there's been word of sequels and spinoffs in the works. But the production of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took longer to launch than expected, and so the effort to create those standalone films was put on the back burner. Now that 'Episode 7' is days away from shooting, Disney is beating the drum again, and have announced they'll be at least three new spinoffs coming before 2024.

The Force is Too Strong With This One: Why ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Needs Less Jedi Magic

The Force

Last week, at least a partial cast was revealed for 'Star Wars: Episode 7'. Almost immediately, speculation began on who the new actors would be playing. Will John Boyega be a young Jedi? Will Adam Driver be a Sith Lord? Will Daisy Ridley (who is strongly rumored to be the daughter of Han and Leia) be a Jedi, too?

Good grief, I hope not. As I’ve written before, Jedi are boring.

The 'Star Wars: Episode 7' casting hasn't even been completed, with roles both major and supporting still left to be announced, so it seems a bit premature to already have the new 'Star Wars' title, but has it leaked online in advance of an official announcement?
