Not exactly. Coppola has been restoring footage cut from the original presentation because it wasn't "commercial" enough. Plus (and this is the big one) he hasn't withdrawn the other versions from sale. So we can compare the original with the Redux and final cut versions

Lucas pissed off a lot of people adding CGI cartoon bullshit to the original footage, redoing scenes (Han shot first) and then being a prick about withdrawing all previous versions from sale and telling fans to suck it up.


At least Coppola allows you to have that choice.
