FOX - owns both the PHYSICAL and the DIGITAL Distribution rights to Star Wars; what is now called Star Wars A New Hope at this point until we are all dust. (Or barring some deal worked out with Disney - with whom Fox has an ongoing spat over Fox/Marvel Studios).

DISNEY currently in 2016 owns the DIGITAL Distribution rights to 1,2,3,5,6 and all the rights to 7.
In 2020 DISNEY/Lucas Arts will then acquire the PHYSICAL Distribution rights (in addition to the DIGITAL rights it already has) to 1,2,3,5,6.

Any deal that occurs will likely ALSO have MARVEL/FOX implications roped in as Disney/MARVEL wants that franchise as well.
As a result, the restored movies are NOT impossible, and there are certainly many original (and OLDER) fans that desire this greatly, however we've seen with Star Wars (7) - T.F.A. that Disney isn't very concerned about the original fans.
They are fixed on the future of Star Wars franchise. So don't hold your breath on seeing "originals" - especially since there is debate on exactly which version(s) of the original theatrical YEARs constitute the original versions.
Although they would be selling the same movies they already sold once before to many of us (and to many people that haven't bought on Blu-ray because of the editing/bastardificationing that Lucas did AGAIN & AGAIN to OUR MOVIES)
so here is hoping pure fiscal logic wins out in the end. Perhaps when they tuck us in at the retirement home.

When 4,5 and 6 come out in 4K UHD format with all the original scenes intact(this includes Han shooting first), then I will buy them!
Star Wars Despecialized is probably as good as the original trilogy is going to get for a while.
Not likely until 2020, and even after then it will be difficult: http://www.slashfilm.com/20th-century-fox-still-owns-rights-to-first-six-star-wars-films-making-original-box-set-difficult/

Disney has the rights to the Star Wars IP, but the original films are still owned by Fox until 2020, with the first film's ownership being in perpetuity.

Is there a chance of that happening? Or should I hop on this?

Now that Disney holds the reins, maybe.

I'd buy these if you just really want to see the movies and will watch them multiple times, but not if you're looking for some sort of "complete" collection so you'll never have to buy them again.

Restoration of the original scenes? Probably not.

That is a weird mix of characters, All darkside except yoda. He sticks out there like a sore thumb. I'll pass just because of that.

Still $60 for the set. What is the cheapest the trilogies have gotten? I would imagine these steel books are missing content that the sets have?
