According to popular theory, when Lucas released the special edition he did the cuts and edits to the original negatives, making it impossible to use them. This leaves only the Library of Congress versions of the original film in tact, and I don't see Disney going through that much effort.

About the only way to see the original is to hunt down a VHS; if Lucas hasn't destroyed them all with a chainsaw.
that is untrue that he destroyed them. not to mention when he made the SE they had to make digital transfers of the films so those original unaltered transfers still exist and we know they still exist as from special edition to special edition he has changed some of the things bakc and fourth.

Plus as others said they did release the originals on DVD once already

A day later, I'm leaning towards this would be the time Disney would do it. They are known for the "limited time to get it then back to the vault it goes" gimmick.

Reason I thought about this was I was tempted to get someone a gift of the entire sage but noticed with 9 blu rays in that thing why couldn't they add the theatrical releases? So I probably will get the prequel set for the gift and wait until Disney does their gimmick for the original trilogy.

Well deserved hate. The prequels were crap. Personally, I think the only reason the originals were any good is because Lucas didn't have the technology to do all the stupid stuff he wanted to do. Well, that and luck.

Several years ago, 2006 I think, the originals were released as part of a 2-disc limited edition DVD. Disc one was the most recent Special release at the time, and Disc 2 was the original movies. Or at least that's how they were advertised (unfortunately I didn't get them at the time). They were also released as a box set a couple years later.

Although when the BlueRays were released they only printed the most recent special editions. I wouldn't be surprised if Disney releases the originals again (probably with the special editions) in a couple of years.
