  Original trilogy - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
The original trilogy (often abbreviated as OT) were the first films of the Star Wars saga to be produced.
The original trilogy is sometimes called the "sequel trilogy" or the "classic trilogy" in contrast to the prequel trilogy.

 DVD Review - The Star Wars Trilogy
It seems that the galaxy is embroiled in a massive civil war between the evil Galactic Empire and the freedom-loving Rebel Alliance.
Too much is predictable here (such as the appearance of a second Death Star) and too many compromises were made for the younger audience members (the very presence of the Ewoks, for example) which is especially noticeable after the more adult themes of the previous installment.
Then, after the second Death Star is destroyed, when the film cuts to the various celebrations around the galaxy, Naboo is now included among the planets we see.

 Star Wars: Original Trilogy
The "Original Trilogy" is comprised of the three original releases of the Star Wars films, known to fans as Episode IV (A New Hope), Episode V (The Empire Strikes Back), and Episode VI (The Return of the Jedi).
Many pundits have attributed the success of Star Wars to the fact that it is "good, pure, fun escapism, offering the viewer a two-hour plus vacation from the strains and troubles of his or her everyday problems".
The Star Wars saga will be transformed into an epic story embracing the rise, fall, and redemption of one man who held the fate of a galaxy in his hands.

 Star Wars Trilogy (DVD) - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
The collection was released in September 2004 co-inciding with the release of Star Wars: Battlefront.
It is believed that the particular time was chosen in order to prepare the public to the release of Revenge of the Sith some months later, the last Star Wars movie ever before the entire Star Wars franchise moves from the movies to television.
The fans' ire was originally increased by the impossibility of legally obtaining DVDs of the original theatrical unaltered releases, and strengthens the Lucas Bashing phenomenon; however, the unaltered trilogy was finally released on DVD in 2006.

 OriginalTrilogy.com - Star Wars on DVD, Fan Edits, and the Art of Fan Editing
This September, the original, unaltered, and beautifully flawed Star Wars trilogy will be released to the public on DVD as bonus material accompanying the 2004 editions.
The focus of our forum's activities, which was to secure a DVD release of the original trilogy, has slowly given way to the fan edits and film preservation projects that grew out of a desire to bring the original Star Wars trilogy to the DVD format using the existing laserdiscs as source material.
My original timetable had this transition occurring toward the end of 2006, but with the announcement of the original trilogy on DVD, that timetable has been accelerated.

 Filmtracks: Star Wars: A New Hope (John Williams)
With Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Superman revealed to audiences within a year's time, Williams cemented thematic orchestral works as the must-have for studios of Hollywood's Bronze Age (largely consisting of the 1980's in the last years of the pre-digital era).
For people discovering the original Star Wars scores today, it may be the dominant memorability of each individual theme that causes such fan attachment, but if you take Star Wars: A New Hope as a whole and enjoy its lesser-known cues, you'll hear the real reason why the score was such a success.
This is not to say, however, that bold statements of theme in Star Wars aren't worthy of their place in history; the "Throne Room" cue alone, with its ultra-heroic brass of truly epic proportions, is a piece that remains awe-inspiring decades later, especially when heard in live concert quality.

Where the original game was quite short, this is a brick-fuelled behemoth, where the original game included Jar-Jar Binks this game has Chewbacca, and whilst the original was criticised for its Episode 3 spoilers this game is based on the movies we all know and love, by the way Luke's father is…

My cousins (who used to slam Star Wars until they saw the prequels and now LOVE them) laugh their asses off when they see puppet Yoda.
They started Star Wars with AOTC and for them puppet Yoda is just hillarious (Menace Yoda looks retarded).
I think the thing about the Jabba scene in Star Wars, was that it was a trial run, to see if what Lucas wanted to do with the Prequels could be done.

 'LEGO Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy' Review (Xbox) | Killer Betties   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Mixing George Lucas' love for samurai films with a sci-fi bent, Star Wars is a trilogy about doing what's right, growing up to become who you are meant to be, and overcoming the temptations that threaten to lead us to the dark side.
For those who hold the trilogy dear to their hearts, all the famous moments from each movie are recreated in the game, from battling tusken raiders to your first trip to Mos Eisley to defending Hoth and beyond until the complete trilogy is complete.
The music is your traditional Star Wars fare, which works just fine, but the sound effects wear out their welcome rather quick, as you'll be hearing the same blaster effects and other like-minded sounds over and over again.

Innumerous beheadings, impalings, and unsightly dismemberment are aplenty in this conclusion to the prequel trilogy, marking the rise of the Galactic Empire and the fall of the Jedi.
By the end of Revenge of the Sith, the table is set for the 1977 Star Wars original, with the last scenes of the film previewing everything from the moisture farm on Tatooine to the construction of the first Death Star.
Off the bat, as mentioned before, the Star Wars theme itself is curiously restrained in the prequel trilogy outside of the customary performances, appearing only once in underscore form during the last minute of the finale here.

George Lucas's original Star Wars trilogy is a clever synthesis of pop-cultural and mythological references, taking classic fairy-tale themes, adding more than a dash of Arthurian legend, and providing cinematic high adventure inspired as much by Kurosawa's Samurai epics as by Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
Probably the reason why I prefer this trilogy is that it's the original Star Wars; the birth of the saga.
I would've given this trilogy 5 stars, yet what disapoints me is that he had to change the trilogy.

Yes, these changes mean that the Star Wars films are no longer the ones you saw 20 years ago, but these brief changes hardly affect the films, and they do make sense in the overall continuity of the two trilogies.
There will always be resentment that the original versions of the films are not available as well, but George Lucas maintains that these are the versions he always wanted to make.

One trilogy was in late 70's early 80's special effects and the other todays special effects which he probably felt would not relate the two very well.
Star Wars is easily ranked as one of the greatest movies of all time, so there should be no reason why everyone shouldn't have this DVD collection in their collection.

 Petition to get Star Wars Original Trilogy on DVD - Discussion Forum /// Eurogamer
As for me, the only one of the three movies I'd consider buying the special edition version of over the cleaned up original version is Empire Strikes Back, and that's because I like the new Cloud City effects and they didn't add in lots of overly flashy effects in the rest of the movie.
The addition to the Death Star sequence in ANH, the tidy ups in EST are about the only decent things about the SE.
I know the original scene just had some fat bloke standing there so there was no problem with Han walking behind him but the whole eye bulging "comedy" moment that was done was just plain shit.

Well Star Wars was not released in 1977 with faded colours and scrathes and dirt all over the prints or mere 2.0 mono sound.
