Lucas says:

In an interview with AP about the original-trilogy DVD release next week:
"The special edition, that's the one I wanted out there. The other movie, it's on VHS, if anybody wants it. ... I'm not going to spend the, we're talking millions of dollars here, the money and the time to refurbish that, because to me, it doesn't really exist anymore. It's like this is the movie I wanted it to be, and I'm sorry you saw half a completed film and fell in love with it."
Well, I'm sorry you took a good film, and in your effort to improve it into what you wanted it to be, broke it. That you couldn't put the original theatrical versions in the disc set is bullshit. Spielberg did it with "E.T." and it worked just fine. My shelf holds a copy of his neutered film with Motorola-menacing feds, and also a copy of his film where those feds are shown to truly be mad beyond the pale, threatening a bunch of young boys with hardware from Mossberg and Smith & Wesson.

It's like, this is the credit card I wanted to carry, and I'm sorry you thought I would use it to put money in your pocket for your "ideal" movie. Which is fine, except I'm spending the money, so I should have it my way.
