Are the ‘Star Wars’ Original Theatrical Releases Finally Arriving on DVD and Blu-ray?

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?

Samuel L. Jackson on the Hilarious Origins of His Purple Lightsaber in ‘Star Wars’

For decades, 'Star Wars' fans were secure in the knowledge that lightsabers came in only three colors: red for evil, green for good and blue for Obi-Wan Kenobi. But then, when the new trilogy of prequels was released between 1999 and 2005, Samuel L. Jackson joined the franchise as Jedi warrior Mace Windu and broke the rules by sporting a purple weapon. So how did it happen?

‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ — George Lucas Says “I Have Not Spoken to J.J. Abrams”

When George Lucas handed the reins of 'Star Wars' over to Disney, it was understood that the man behind the most popular science fiction universe of all time would only be involved in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' in a limited capacity. However, we didn't realize just how limited it was! Lucas recently spoke out about his involvement in 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and revealed that he hasn't spoken to director J.J. Abrams. Like, at all.

As Pegg said, "All the things that we loved about the first three."

Unused ‘Star Wars’ Script From Lucas to Be Adapted Into New Comic Series

It's the kind of thing that sounds like an April Fool's Day prank, but for 'Star Wars' fans it will be an exploration of one of the greatest "What if?" scenarios of all time. Dark Horse Comics has announced that it is adapting George Lucas' original 'Star Wars' treatment into a comic miniseries. Sure, 'Star Wars' comics are nothing new, but Lucas' original ideas were so radically and wildly different than the finished films that this should prove fascinating and utterly unique.

Rock Quiz: Gimmie Shelter [December 6th]

Q) On this day in 1969, the Rolling Stones played Altamont Speedway in California. During that concert, an 18-year old fan was stabbed and killed by the Hells Angels in front of the stage. That scene was part of the documentary ‘Gimmie Shelter’ which was released on this day in 1970. One of the camera operators on the crew of that movie has gone on to much bigger and better things in the movie world. Who is he?

‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ — Just How Involved Will George Lucas Be in the New Trilogy?

While we wait patiently (ever so patiently...) for a director to finally be named to helm 'Star Wars: Episode 7', we must look elsewhere to feed our 'Star Wars' hunger.

George Lucas will certainly do nicely! Ever since the news broke that the man would be on board in an advisory role during the development of 'Episode 7' (and beyond), most of us have been wondering just how connected he will be. To hear Lucas tell it, he's just sort of going to be hanging around, waiting for people to ask him something.

George Lucas Reveals His Post-’Star Wars’ Plans and New Movies

No 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for George Lucas! In case you haven't heard (yeah right), Lucas recently sold his Lucasfilm empire to Disney for a meager $4 billion, giving the future of 'Star Wars' over to the Mouse House and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. A stunning development that immediately reinvigorated the 'Star Wars' brand and turned the entire fanboy focus toward the beloved franchise once again.

But what about George? He'll act as creative consultant on the next 'Star Wars' trilogy, starting with 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' but by and large he'll be leaving the force in someone else's hands. So the question is, what does the man do with his time now?
