The Complete Star Wars Back On Blu-Ray:
Six Special Edition Steelbooks In November
We knew this was coming.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens about to explode in December (with toys hitting in September), there was no way the first six movies could not be available in stores. And it makes perfect sense that the collectors' sensation that is "steelbook" packaging would be the way to do it.
Get ready, people. There is a strong disturbance in the Force coming... and it's the impact of all these people fighting over these steelbooks...
From Disney/20th Century Fox:
As the galaxy prepares for the next generation of Star Wars, the six epic films will each release as commemorative Blu-ray steelbooks on November 10th. These highly collectible films will be available for a limited time only and can be pre-ordered beginning August 7th. In addition, Star Wars: The Complete Saga will be released in newly repackaged artwork on October 13th. The announcements were made today by The Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Each film from the Saga is presented with new character packaging allowing fans to choose their favorite or collect all six for a limited time. Characters include: The Phantom Menace – Darth Maul; Attack of the Clones – Yoda; Revenge of the Sith – General Grievous; A New Hope – Darth Vader; The Empire Strikes Back – Imperial Stormtrooper; and Return of the Jedi – Emperor Palpatine.
In addition to the collectible steelbook packaging, each single disc Blu-ray includes existing audio commentary with George Lucas and the film crew as well as audio commentary from archival interviews with the cast and crew.
The newly repackaged Saga includes all six feature films on Blu-ray, along with three additional discs containing more than 40 hours of previously released extensive special features.
