This marks the first time that the original trilogy has been in theaters since the release of the special edition versions back in 1997; rights holders Disney and Twentieth Century Fox have teamed up to honor the international Star Wars day on May 4 (May the fourth be with you, geddit?) with selected theaters from Village, Hoys and Event cinemas Australia wide and throughout New Zealand all participating.
