All I really want to see are some of these 'new' Deleted Scenes. Hopefully they will make their way to YouTube quickly.

Thanks! I am also hoping there is an extra devoted to Carrie Fisher trying on the iron bikini.

I hope these haven't been shared already:

EXCLUSIVE: No More ‘Star Wars’ 3D Prequel Releases; Lucasfilm Passes To Focus On New Trilogy
BY NIKKI FINKE, Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: I learned of this decision just now from Lucasfilm‘s promotional partners who are telling me the studio now owned by Disney wants to focus only on “rebooting the franchise” with three new Star Wars films.

This surprising decision follows the underwhelming box office performance of Episode I: The Phantom Menace re-released in 3D in February 2012. It debuted to only $23M domestically but maybe even more importantly hardcore fans felt it was yet another craven cash grab by George Lucas.

Back in September 2010, Lucasfilm and then-distributor Fox announced that all 6 films in the Star Wars franchise would be converted to 3D. Episode II: Attack Of The Clones (first released on May 16, 2002) was to hit theaters in 3D on September 20th, 2013, while Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith (first released on May 19, 2005) was to play in 3D on October 11, 2013.

This news comes just days after Disney confirmed that J.J. Abrams will direct the new Star Wars: Episode VII scheduled to be released in 2015. It’s the first new Star Wars movie since 2005. Michael Arndt is writing the script. Disney bought Lucasfilm in October 2012 for $4 billion, with the Star Wars franchise obviously the jewel in the crown. At the time, Disney CEO Bob Iger said three more Star Wars films were in the pipeline.

Big up to Harmy! I've watched The Empire Strikes Back Despecialized v.1 and it's beautiful. Will be getting the Despecialized remastered versions and going in on these again! Great fan work. And Fuck George Lucas for not allowing Blu-rays of the original, original trilogy.

Weren't the non anamorphic versions on the 2 disc DVDs the original versions, or had those already been changed?

Yes, they were the originals and they were taken from the same masters as the laser disc versions of the original films BUT look at the difference between anamorphic and non-anamorphic transfers.

http://www.starwarz.com/tbone/archive/index.php?categoryid=22&p2_articleid=462

Basically, if it ain't an anamorphic transfer it pretty much sucks...and if MOST studio are doing anamorphic transfers, why would Lucas not bother, especially on the first 2 movies, which use composition and framing to great effect?
