After years of pleas from his fans and just as many middle fingers from Mr. Lucas, we finally have HD, unedited versions of the original Star Wars trilogy! Harmy has released what the studios have never done for us; a completely restored, HD version of the films as originally seen in theaters. Han shoots first. The silly, horrible CGI that was added into various scenes is gone. Kenobi’s original Krayt dragon roar that frightens the sand people away is back. Here we have Lucas’ original versions of all three films, the ones we the fans have been waiting for since the DVD format dawned many years ago.
The latest version of Harmy’s ‘A New Hope’ is entitled ‘STAR WARS DESPECIALIZED EDITION REMASTERED v2.5 MKV‘ and you can find it at a torrent site near you. This version has some improvements over their v2.0 edition. It is also in MKV format which can be easily ripped to a DVD or Blu-ray via an enoding app like Freemake Video Converter.
