    Was just watching Malcolm in the Middle on TV3, and during the ad breaks I was surprised to see Threepio suddenly pop up.

    The scene from ANH where Threepio argues with Artoo about entering the escape pod on the Tantive IV played. Looks like the trilogy might be coming to TV3 (I'm pretty sure it was in widescreen, too).

    Woohoo! :D

    I remember they did a campaign like that a few years back for a new series of Xena - they kept showing X's in the middle of the ads, and you thought "What was that about?" Finally they added the words, "Xena- coming soon".

    Wow, I can't wait. It will be so cool to see them back on TV again.

    Another ad during CSI. Vader and Luke fighting in ROTJ, Luke flips up onto the overhead catwalk. Looks like it will be the trilogy, and not just ANH.

    I actually hope they *don't* play them all at once. That can be done with videos anytime. If they're all played on different nights (like, they could have a SW month with the one of the movies playing each Sunday for a month), they'll have a better chance of getting good ratings (and maybe create a few new fans :) ).

    Okay, I can see this becoming a new New Zealand fan force sport - TV3 Star Wars clip spotting!

    i think the star wars movie month sounds like a great idea
    bring it on

    saw the ANH ad and it just got me so excited
    did any one see any ad's for ESB?

    Not sure if TV have the rights for Original SW, I remember some comments the last time SW was shown on TV that it was the last time they would be able to show them as the rights were coming to an end. Not sure how factual that is but my guess would be SE. I gotta watch some more TV and catch up on the ads :D

    I have all the origanals on tape the ESB and ROTJ r off the tv and I got a ANH video from the video shop for $3 second hand.

    I hope they r SE as i have only seen SE and TPM once on the big screen thats it and im cheap and havent brought the videos.

    I'm pretty sure it'll be the SE. The quality of the image looked like SE, plus I don't think they'd hype up the original like this (since it has been on many times, although not for awhile).

    You'd probably find that George Lucas has "outlawed" the showing of the non-SE versions.

    If you've got the non-SE versions on tape (like me), look after them, because it's doubtful that they'll ever be seen again.

    Okay, I'm watching TV3 at the moment (7:30pm) in the hope of seeing these clips.
    *sigh* the sad life of a star wars fan.

    glad you saw one Kitt327 makes it all worthwhile
    i didn't see any last night
    didn't watch TV3 either maybe thats it

    i have original versions of ANH, ESB and ROTJ on video
    great to see the differences

    did have the SE in the flat too but the other flat mate left

    bummer

    the real questions is when are they going to show them

    you could play bits of the video and pretend you saw it ;)

    You would think with 4 sets of trilogy vids plus a VCD set, I wouldn't care about the TV version - but I think I'll tape it anyway. (theres something about watching it with ads)

    Don't forget about the annoying TV3 logo in the corner too.

    You'll notice that they (and TV4) turn it off for the adverts! That's because the companies paying for the advertising wouldn't put up with it, but we the poor "customer" have little choice. TV shows should state that the channels are NOT allowed to do it to their shows either.

    :(

    maybe if we were super lucky TV3 would play it without any adverts

    don't think that will happen

    personally i liked it when the movies had intermissions in the middle
    that was cool
