Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of Darth Vader and the evil Empire.

    This is the edited liberal version where spielberg changes the bar seen. It’s sad how these people can produce such a work of art and re-edit it to conform with their leftist, liberal ideology, totally destroying the true character of the films meaning. I wish I could return it, but I bought it years ago on iTunes.
  • A complete and utter piece of garbage

    By mctoast
    DO NOT BUY THIS. This is NOT “STAR WARS”. This is “Star Wars: A New Hope”. An utter piece of crap made by George Lucas whereby he has destroyed the original classic film. Some times, a director will go back and make a film better (like Steven Spielberg and the “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” directors cut, or Ridley Scott and his “Blade Runner” final cut). Lucas, on the other hand, went insane and screwed up what was once a great film, then has tried to shove it down people’s throats. Don’t take it. This “new version” is crap.

    At one time Apple was the paradigm for originality and creativity-- now they pass off a defaced and adulterated revision of the iconic film I once saw on the silver screen back in 1977. Shame on you for not offering the theatrical version which was Star Wars.

  • Good thing I have the original on dvd

    By DNichols415
    I bought the original theatrical version of this trilogy on dvd decades ago before George changed it. Now, these versions are not available in stores and sell online for hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. I enjoyed this movie then and still do. Every movie boils down to basic tropes and cliches. It how a great artists take those tropes and cliches and make them exciting that separates great art from the rest. As far as the reviewer who suggests we put OUR money to our complaints... I think they are. Do you realize how many people will purchase the original theatrical release if it comes out digitally (and it will eventually...because money talks). It will make billions of dollars overnight, if that long. So, lucky for me I can still experience the original magic and enjoy the “cleaned up” version when I need to. I think every consumer needs that option and directors need to leave their classics alone. Should everyone who made a movie in 70s revisit them?
  • In the top 5 movies of all time

    The greatest ever. The only bad thing is the "additions" Geoge put in later. Oh George.
  • Bummer this isn’t the original

    By nichollspete
    Since Disney owns Lucasfilm, can’t they just release the original cut of the film from 1977 minus all the changes George added? I was excited to see one of the most influential films of all time available on iTunes, but this is not it, sadly. Hoping to see the original cut on iTunes in the future. Come on, Disney and Apple! Make it happen!
  • Classic

    Is the classic Star Wars movie that the rest are rated against. Too bad they had to start in the middle.

    This is my favorite film of the original trilogy. I asked my dad if I could see this when I was five. Best decision I've ever made.
