    "More and more, our sources are hinting that Disney and Lucasfilm are likely to release The Complete Star Wars Saga in Blu-ray/4K Ultra HD box sets next year. It makes sense for a number of reasons. First, the final film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, will be arriving on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K, and Digital early in 2020. That’s reportedly going to be the last such film to be released in the franchise for at least a few years, so it would make sense that they’d release a complete box set of everything to that point. Also, The Empire Strikes Back celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2020. And once Disney is done releasing all of their Marvel and Pixar product in 4K, there’s only one big franchise left untapped on the format. For all of these reasons, we think it’s likely that we’ll see these films in 4K next year. We already know that the classic trilogy has been scanned from the original negatives (new 4K masters are done and ready), and the prequels will no doubt be upsampled and digitally restored. Whether Disney and Lucasfilm would consider including the original theatrical versions of those classic films is the $24,000 question. My gut tells me to assume they won’t, at this point. Then, if they do, you can be pleasantly surprised. So take that all as a rumor for now and stay tuned for more here as it comes in."

    Where also getting Lego The Skywalker Saga next year as well; with all IX movies. So, it would make sense for Lego to release along side the 4k box set.

    I'll only buy if the unaltered Original Trilogy is included. My Harmy discs will be fine until then.

    If this becomes true, i'll buy it day 1 since im slowly replacing my currently bluray collection to 4k. I wouldn't care if they don't include the theatrical versions because i've already came to terms that there will never be an official release of it with updated graphics.

    Harmy is in reference to Petr Harmáček (Harmyfilm Restoration) the person who created the Despecialized versions of the Original Trilogy. Some people just refer to them as the Harmy versions for short.

    I have a 4K TV but not a 4K Blu-ray player.

    This might convince me to buy one. :)

    I would bet a lot of money that they wont be included. The BR version is the definitive version (PT as well) of the movies in lucas mind.

    I know, but I spent 20 years with the Original Trilogy before the special editons, and those are the versions I consider definitive and that carry the most nostalgia. I also believe those versions should be preserved and readily available for others as a significant piece of our cultural history as well as an important part of cinematic history.

    I don't begrudge anyone prefering the special editions. I would just like the theatrical version, the one that won awards, to be available too.

    Sorry, rant over, lol.

    Not holding my breath. I don't expect to see them released either. I've purchased these movies so many times on multiple formats. I have a 4K TV and player, but I find myself hesitant to purchase them again if the colors aren't better (Vader's pink lightsaber) or the Originals arent included.


    Who am I kidding. They will probably include some special feature not previously available that will get me to buy them. I'm just lamenting the loss of something I consider very important.
