Star Wars - The Original Trilogy [Harmy Despecialized Edition]

https://images2.imgbox.com/0c/2d/Tzd4FRZg_o.jpeg


I used to have no problem with the Star Wars: Special Editions. After all, Star Wars was Lucas's baby, he could do with it what he pleased.

And than, Disney happened...

Given the current wreckage that is Star Wars, outside of The Mandalorian, I've lately been reconsidering "The Special Editions" and have come to regard them as no less cultural vandalism than the recontextualization that Disney itself has been attempting, and will probably complete by the end of The Rise of Skywalker. 

Enter: Star Wars - The Original Trilogy [Harmy Despecialized Edition], a fan restoration of  the movies to a state close to their original theatrical presentation.

You know why I support this?

Because George Lucas, refused to provide an original unaltered print of Star Wars (A New Hope) to the Library of Congress as part of their film preservation project when asked. Sure he'd let them have a Special Edition - But not the movie as it first appeared. 

Killing the past is bad when Disney does it. Its also bad when Lucas tries to paper-over it. 

I'd now go as far as to say, these restored versions of the Original Trilogy are probably the best manner to experience these films. 

They are easy enough to come by and can even by found at the Internet Archive. If you are a Star Wars fan do yourself a favor and find them. Keep', viral!
