Will we EVER see a true re-release of the untouched OT Star Wars?
Do you think we'll EVER--even after George is dead--see a restored release on a high definition format of the original 1977 Star Wars, original 1980 Empire and 1983 Jedi? I mean something MORE than the crappy Laserdisk transfers we got in 2004--Real, awesome quality transfers of the original landmark films with all the care they deserve?

"Star Wars Identities" Exhibit Premiering in Montreal
Just like the Indiana Jones exhibit last year, beautiful Montreal is premiering a new exhibition called "Star Wars Identities" and it was created by the same Montreal company who did the Indy one and it's at the same venue, the Montreal Science Centre.
It opened yesterday (April 19) and will be running until September 16, 2012 before moving on to Edmonton, Alberta. It features over 200 props, costumes and production drawings, etc.
Unfortunately, I'm leaving back for Switzerland today but will be home again in the summer and will see the exhibit then. If anyone plans on coming into town to for it, let me know!
Location: Skull Island (the spiders get in everything!).

Not the first one of its kind, actually. I think there are more like three or four preceding this.
You'll have to take my word for it though, due to the lack of SFW links.
Though your wish may be in vain. Judging by that pattern in their upcoming releases list, I'd say they're bound to get around to Indy in due time.
I also have to say that some of these things actually surprise with the quality and thought that's gone into them. If you cut all the... action scenes, you'll get what's a pretty affectionate parody that almost honors the source material.
the Jar Jar in carbonite...sigh...again, why is Jar Jar always thrown under the bus, as if its gonna take all the stink off the mess that is Phantom Menace? we get it, we all get it, Jar Jar is bad...but there is so much more to grow a sense of humor about. How about a figure of post-podrace wreck mangled Ani? or just-got-shot-in-the-face-by-a-droideka-Padme? Coruscant street pizza Mace Windu? Hell, they havent even given us a Windouche with a severed arm yet!
Am I the only person in the world who likes Jar-Jar? I think he's sweet.....
