Star Wars fans are desperately wanting George Lucas' extended version of what happened in a galaxy far, far away. As reported by Yahoo!, Change.org user Fraser Beitzel has started a petition aimed at getting Lucas to release a four-hour long cut of his prequel trilogy film, Revenge of the Sith. The petition reads as follows:

"The original Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith (2005) cut was over four hours long, and we think that George Lucas should do the right thing and give the fans what we deserve and what is rightfully ours. We love democracy, and we hope he does too. By signing this you are letting your voices be heard. If this petition does go viral, then we will have unlimited power and if George does the right thing then he would be strong and wise and we would all be very proud of him. This whole operation is our idea and we need to ensure that it is done. We will proclaim ah, victory when we achieve our goal. May the force be with you all and have faith."

The petition has currently amassed over 18,000 signatures! You can check out the campaign and sign it here.

Evidently, the original version of the film features numerous scenes that were cut from the theatrical release, including a group of senators plotting against Emperor Palpatine and a sequence featuring Yoda’s arrival in exile on Dagobah. After a fan campaign led to the announcement that Zack Snyder's director's cut of Justice League would finally debut via HBO Max, there is definitely hope that this petition could get Lucas' attention!
