Release complete soundtracks for the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy

It has been approximately 17 years since Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was released, 13 years since Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones was released, and about 11 years since Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. All three of these scores are considered some of the best, and most memorable Star Wars scores. Revenge of the Sith is arguably considered on of John William's best scores in general. Yet, unlike all of the other Star Wars films, we do not have any expanded, or complete soundtrack releases for Episodes 2 & 3 in particular. We have "complete" scores from Episode 4, 5, and 6, and an "expanded" score for Episode 1, but for Episodes 2 and 3, all we have are the original soundtrack albums, which have been re-released multiple times in the past decade alone, without even an ounce of new music. Some of John William's most iconic music from these films aren't even officially released for the public to hear... and who knows what amazing treasures might have been recorded but not used in the films? As you can see from the massive amount of fan-made albums over the years, and the huge interest they have generated, it would be FOOLISH not to release official complete scores for these films. I'm not positive who currently holds the rights to the Star Wars music for the original 6 films, whether that be Lucasfilm, Sony Classical, or Walt Disney Records, but surely all of these companies are aware of the level of interest fans of both Star Wars and John Williams would have in such a release. Just look at the interest people had in the Ultimate Soundtrack Collection set that was released this last January; and that material was already available to the public!! Just imagine how fans would react if we finally were able to listen to never-before-heard music! Star Wars popularity is at an all-time-high, and now is the best time to release more of this iconic music to pump us all up for all of the upcoming Star Wars films! Please, Lucasfilm, do the right thing!
