Newswire: John Landis said that George Lucas said that the Star Wars theatrical cut will be re-released
In between showing up in every documentary ever made, John Landis stopped by a Halloween Horror Nights Q&A in Orlando, Florida last night, where he dropped an interesting tidbit about a galaxy far, far away. According to the American Werewolf In London director, the original theatrical cuts (i.e., no Jabba The Hutt in Docking Bay 94 and the return of the space werewolf to the Mos Eisley Cantina) of Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of The Jedi will be re-released by Disney…sometime, presumably in the near future. This information came from George Lucas, who, according to Empire Magazine, mentioned it to Landis the last time the two filmmakers spoke:
At a Q&A tonight John Landis dropped that Disney are finally going to re-release the theatrical cuts of the original Star Wars trilogy.
