With the arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens just a few months away, there will be plenty more Star Wars hype coming down the road. One thing that fans have been hoping for more than anything is the return of the original Star Wars trilogy to theaters to lead up to the release of The Force Awakens, and it looks like their wish may come true.
The movie theater chain AMC Theatres recently posted a Twitter update saying that fans would have the opportunity to see all six Star Wars movies in theaters again before The Force Awakens arrives, complete with a link that presumably went to a page where you could learn more about the marathon.
Update: Netflix and AMC have both responded to refute this rumor. More info below.

There’s already more stuff to watch on Netflix than you’ll be able to get through in a lifetime, but even so this news is bound to come as a disappointment to subscribers.

On the flip side, this is great news for Hulu users.

UPDATE: Alas, the A Series of Unfortunate Events teaser trailer has been revealed as a fake. Original story follows.
Last year, we got the very fortunate news that Netflix was fast-tracking a series based on Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. For fans, that meant a second chance to see the beloved books brought to life, following the little-loved 2004 movie starring Jim Carrey.
