I wonder if Star Wars was a sticking point
in the deal. Fox currently owns all
distribution rights to Episode IV and will
forever unless they sell them. They also
have the home video and streaming rights
to Episode I-III,V & VI till 2020. These
are cash cows that do not cost Fox a lot
of money considering the return on
investment. You have to figure that ANY
chance of a Star Wars Theatrical Cut
release relies on this deal going through.
Also, we probably won't see a box set with
all of the saga films together without
this deal as well.
