Hope springs eternal. Hope, that is, that one day the Star Wars trilogy will be re-released on DVD/Blu-ray in its original, unadulterated form.
Unfortunately, that hope has been struck another blow by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, who has said she wouldn't dream of messing around with George Lucas's vision.
(Only George Lucas is allowed to do that.)

Lucas has famously tinkered with Episodes IV-VI, adding CGI transitions (mainly featuring falling over droids, Stormtroopers and alien beasts) and rocks, as well as changing who shot first in Han Solo's showdown with Greedo.
Lucasfilm creative executive and Supreme Leader Snoke theory destroyer Pablo Hidalgo has also dismissed the recurring rumours that the original cuts would be re-released or restored.
Celebrating 20 years of that unaltered re-release rumor.

Lucas was most recently seen looking on in horror as Harrison Ford said that he was "not really" looking forward to the Han Solo spin-off movie while the pair were interviewed on stage at Star Wars Celebration.
The next outing for the series will be Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is arriving on December 15.
