Sorry friends, they are the “Special Editions.” Not the Second Set of Special Editions that Lucas is still working on, but the “Special Editions” from 1997. Bottom line, they aren’t the originals. (Sniff, sniff!!!)

The most requested films for the DVD format will finally become a
reality this September as Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox
present the eagerly-awaited Star Wars Trilogy for the ultimate home
entertainment format. The four-disc collection will be released on
September 21 in the U.S. and Canada, with international release dates
following closely.
“We know how long fans have waited for this release and how much they
have been looking forward to it, so everyone has been working overtime
to make sure that the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD is an awesome
experience,” said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing and
Distribution for Lucasfilm Ltd. and the DVD collection’s Executive
Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi will be available in a four-disc
set that includes a bonus disc filled with all-new special features
— including the most comprehensive feature-length documentary ever
produced about the Star Wars saga and never-before-seen footage from
the making of all three films. Each of the three films in the Star
Wars Trilogy has been digitally restored and re-mastered by THX for
superior sound and picture quality.
“First and foremost, the DVDs will deliver the very best possible sound
and picture and take advantage of everything the medium can offer. On
top of that, we are creating added-value material that gets inside the
creation of the Star Wars films in a fresh and fun way,” Ward said. “We
want watching this DVD collection to be as memorable as seeing the
movies for the first time.”
The films of the Star Wars Trilogy will be available exclusively as a
collection and will feature Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround EX. All three
films are closed-captioned and subtitled in English, French and Spanish
in the U.S. Internationally, sound and subtitling specifications will
vary by territory.
