Star Wars: A New Hope – Blu-ray/VHS Comparison

I cannot wait to get my hands on the upcoming Blu-Ray release of the original Star Wars trilogy. The extras look impressive and from what I have seen, the transfer looks crisp and super clean. I found this comparison video on YouTube and it is interesting, because I had heard, as the author of the video points out, that they were going to fix lightsaber color issues in the release. So if this is the actual blu-ray, why does the lightsaber still have the greenish color instead of blue? Perhaps they are not going to fix the color or perhaps this is from the HD broadcast of the movie that ran in Europe a couple of years ago. Time will tell.
