Not the original. Not worth buying.

Clearly, the public wants to buy a remastered original theatre release. Why is there even a wait? It’s such certain easy and significant money that the stockholders might have a case against management. ;)

Would rate zero stars if I could. Release the OG cut that I grew up watching with my dad please, this is a completely different movie. It’s sad bc A New Hope deserves better than this, the OG cut would be rated all of the stars in the galaxy.

I LOVE the original trilogy, but I HATE the updates that Lucas made to the movies. They were fine as they were.

Gullwing Doc 2022-09-30
Forget about asking about the originals. Disney won’t listen to us true fans cuz they’re rich and powerful enough to not have to.

This movie is amaze , but iTunes is not good

mahlerwasright 2021-11-19
I just paid $20 for the film and it does not play in Dolby Vision or Atmos. I open the HBO Max app with the same setup and content plays perfectly in Vision and Atmos. What is going on here?

Jeff Sanguis 2021-09-22
No one cares what you whiners have to say to feel “cool”. George Lucas had an idea that he sold for 4 BILLION dollars and then he gave it to charity. When you say you have made 1/10th of an impact like that in this world then maybe your review will matter. Until then, George rules, Star Wars rules and you’re a nerd.

At least my Roddenberry doesn’t screw it all up. He did his Star ____ franchise right.

The originals are the best 2021-05-01
Like seriously many people are arguing over this and it’s very wrong this movie was actually the first Star Wars movie so be thankful

I don’t care about it not being the 77 release. Let’s just say I preferred the Jim Henson puppets.

abrower 2021-04-27
Release the originals. These “Special Editions” need to be buried and forgotten about.

SUFI 2021-04-27
The first and the best: keep the rest Strictly for the rubes.

A very great introduction to the rest of the series. Great cast as well!

Best movie ever

Darth Vader Lord Of The Sith 2021-02-20
This movie is the best, it’s my favorite! The beginning is great! The story is great! The characters are great! It’s the best movie ever made!

This is such a classic movie you can’t go wrong, it started this whole saga

The special effects are fine.

It’s me...the least known Star Wars character of all time....Idina Skyla Hunter. YES I am as real as the eyebrows on your forehead. But NO. I was NOT created by George Lucas. Does this make me any less real? I think not. Sooo how to begin? You might be wondering “How could one eleven year old possibly be so awesome?” Because I was created by an obsessed girl named [REDACTED FOR ANONYMITY] so she could have a character she understood when she played Star Wars. I started out as some kind of orange skinned, yellow haired girl with green eyes and a power to create Also my name was Starfire (after one of [REDACTED]’s dolls). After the girl got bored with this overly powerful...thing, I was ditched. BUT. After the creation of Luna Birdsong, Starfire was reawakened under the NEW identity of Iduna (from Frozen II) and could control all of nature. Pretty powerful right? Okay, hold on to your helmets cause things start getting weirder. When [REDACTED] realized she couldn’t just copy another character, she went on a spree of creativity, the final result being a psychologically disturbed tween carrying a second half of secret Death Star plans , with auburn hair that was actually made up of every shade of red imaginable and indigo eyes, who could secretly control Air and feel Emotions by touching someone. Aka, ME; Idina Skyla Hunter. And yeah I know; Aerokinesis is not a real Star Wars power. But when it comes to imagination, [REDACTED] is champ. I am part of an estranged family line whose last name is Hunter. We can feel the Force...but Our brains are hardwired to feel it differently. Example: my mom had a freaky ability to turn invisible because the Force let light pass through her. The Emperor would give his thumb and forefinger to get his clammy fingers on me (Yes I know from experience exactly HOW clammy they are) just so he can taunt me, fail to seduce me, and then call me worthless and zap me to death. So yeah. Next time you hear [REDACTED] play outside with her second-ever (or third?) alter ego (ME) don’t judge; I may be different but I make a little girl very happy. And that makes me smile. Also I need to add in the Ode to My Awesomeness none of these reviewers are writing. “The best part of this movie was by far Idina what if she is a pathological liar half the movie? It’s part of her character development! She lies because her mom died! I could relate so hard to Idina because she’s thrown into a world she doesn’t understand and struggles to adjust, even when in the ruthless custody of Darth Vader. Watch this movie just to experience the stunning character development of Idina and sob buckets over her interactions with Leia.” Idina —> Out Grr Idina not again! How many times do I have to do this? First prime video now iTunes! Hi I’m Luke Skywalker. Yes, Idina is real...but this does NOT give her the right to proclaim it to the world. Trust me, I know this review has taken up two minutes of your life but—(YEAH TWO OF THE COOLEST MINUTES EVER!! Idina —> Out) BUT she will not do it again. I know Idina’s lying can get out of hand...but trust me she’s gotten so much better. Her mom died five years ago and she’s been “storytelling” since. Don’t worry though...I THINK we’ve almost gotten past the trauma. Good bye from Luke Skywalker {Hey ya’ll? If you read this far slip “Aerokinetic” into your would make me feel good inside because...well it just would. You deserve a gold star if you read all this because it made my day. Bye.

What happened to the iTunes Extras?

acroav8r 2020-10-17
Gone hate. Yeah. You should have bought the dvd set when you could.

Avid Audio Listener 2020-10-04
Terrible CGI overreach by Lucas which ruined the whole Star Wars experience. Release the original remastered unedited version and I may consider buying.

Zillow is cool 2020-08-31
Star Wars: a new hope is a film I can’t really say much about as its been said before. But I will say that I think the changes the made are pretty mixed, some are for the better like an improved Jawa vehicle, a better exterior shot of Ben Kenobi's house and the far better explosions and space battles for the most part, but other changes like Jabba and Mos Eisley are really bad and clucking. Don’t even start with Han Solo and Greedo. Other than that it’s just a beautiful movie.

thucjdhdxhbd 2020-08-21
As good as Empire

LukeIsCool99 2020-05-19
Not my favorite SW movie, but probably in my top 5. It’s truly of the the best classic movies. The graphics are bad but you know. This also kicked off the best movie franchise. It got very popular, very quickly and I think it should off. Not the best though. Don’t get me wrong I love this Movie but there’s just better ones out there.

Until LucasFilm and Disney gives us the original despecialized editions of the original trilogy, don’t give them any more money.

A New Hope Isn't just a mindset that was build from the ground up it's a film that many people will enjoy if they never seen star wars it's possible this entertaining but long sci-fi movie is substained into high max level to keep you entertained the visual effects to be honest were incredible even for me it was brilliant and well made movie sure it has it's funny momments and explosive visuals it's modernly good.

I think empire strikes is better

denverb789123456 2020-02-01
One of my favorites :)

Why?!!? Just why?!?!?!? All three great movies have bad reviews because they don’t have the “originals”? Are you idiots retarded?

PixarGoodDisneyBad 2019-12-27
Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way Acting is very awkward on most characters, they sound like robots (exceptions would be Han, Obi-Wan, Tarkin and Vader). Some bad dialogue Umm... that’s it... wack... Everything else is great! Even the bad stuff I can let pass given how old it is! Watching this movie again was a truly nostalgic experience! I adore it for its creativity and its sense of fun. Most films don’t have that any more... *sigh* oh well! I love these characters, especially Han and Obi-Wan. The story is timeless with an amazing conclusion and the score is iconic! This film has flaws. But I’m willing to let most of those slide! 9/10

Star Wars a new hope

Jbd081084 2019-12-19
Not to happy that the movie freezes up. While watching it. Now I’m worried about buying the others like episodes 1-3 and 7-9

WilSanchez78 2019-12-13
I will not purchase the special edition versions of the original trilogy. I can careless if you make them available for free. WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

IrishPirQueen 2019-11-17
Why can’t I RENT the original awesome Star award? Please!

StarWarsMan1138 2019-09-28
This movie is the one we all grew up with and was without a doubt the start of the greatest thing yet to come. The thing is, George Lucas thought this was going to flop HARD! But I'm sure he and the entire world were thankful that he was wrong. The iconic appearances of Luke, the terrifying Darth Vader, Han and his swagger, Leia, the fluffy Chewbacca, and the legendary Kenobi will always have them warm in our hearts. If it weren't for this film, we wouldn't have an amazing franchise, fanbase, and geek culture that we are left with today. This is going to be one of the greatest original creations ever, and I can't get Cantina Band out of my mind for crying out loud! :D

anthony99206 2019-09-27
these are not the movies that made star wars great. give us the original cut , not the butchered version.

ilistentomusic(obviously) 2019-09-02
I’m gonna rate this movie based on what it was, and not this terrible looking version George Lucas edited a few years ago: This was my childhood. Acting is amazing, and for its time the visual effects were the best ever created. John Williams cemented his legacy as a legendary composer. Basically everything about this movie is AWESOME. Except for two small things: 1. Carrie Fisher’s temporary and inconsistent British accent. Why did she even try? Just use your normal accent! A great performance nearly marred by an irritating inconsistency. 2. Luke’s whining and complaining. Must really run in his family.

SEMINOLE97 2019-09-01
Come on people. The special editions improved the visuals and tweaked a couple of scenes, for better or for worse. They’re perfect and I’m so glad they exist. And if you’ve never seen Star Wars.. start with the originals (4, 5, 6) before you watch the prequels (1, 2, 3) It’s confusing but trust me.

Greedo's Big Beautiful Eyes 2019-08-09
I’m sorry, I just love it so much. I love the characters. All of them, really. John Williams’ music is astounding. The climax is my favorite part probably. Idk if you haven’t seen it before forget everything I or anyone else has said about it and find out how good it is for yourself. S T A R W A R S

woody1965 2019-07-12
Disney, now’s your chance to make back the money we’re withholding from you for your carelessness with the Star Wars franchise. We can hold out forever. Release the originals and we will buy the DVD’s or digital versions by the millions. Release AND put the originals in theaters for a limited run and you’ll make back your $4 billion in no time. Wise up, y’all. This ain’t hard to grasp. “You’re throwing away a fortune here. Don’t be a fool!” -Han Solo. ROTJ

Kilgrey 2019-07-11
Will wait. At least name the video correctly so you’re not misleading people. This should be called the - 1997 Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition.

MovieCritic779 2019-07-08
This film gives us a fun and satisfying - if a bit uneven - start to the second Star Wars trilogy.

Dark Coast 2019-06-13
This film was lightening in a bottle. A miracle. Arguably the greatest film ever made.

omnibusfilms 2019-05-05
Not sure why Disney won’t release a HD non specialized edition. It’s embarrassing like the special editions. Maybe they should hire that fan who scanned original 35mm prints and created the only HD theatrical releases.

DavidFoster 2019-05-04
Sell the released movie.
