Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope • director George Lucas
A recent episode of How I Met Your Mother had the guys “trilling it up” - watching the original Star Wars trilogy together at least once every three years. It made me realize I haven’t watched the trilogy in a long time. So I decided to start.
I will admit that I technically own three versions of the original trilogy. I bought the version that was initially released on DVD because Lucas said he’d never release the original theatrical versions, that made me sad but I bought it because I love the films. Then a few years later Lucas decided to release yet another new version of the films on DVD - and as a bonus feature on each film there was a second disc that had the theatrical version!!!!!!!
So I bought that set. And now the bonus discs with the theatrical versions are the only versions I’ll watch. Why? Because Han shot first.
