Actually, there were plans to do 9, and Kurtz himself has explained several times what 7-9 were going to be. Essentially, most of the elements from those films (Luke's sister, final confrontation with Palpatine) were wedged into ROTJ. I have no doubt that Lucas was making it up big time as he went along, but there were definitely plans for 7-9. Anyway, I'm buying this. No one should be surprised at the lack of the theatrical versions. Doesn't make it right, but I will also say that they will show up...sometime. Probably as anamorphic DVD quality extras.
