If you’ve seen the HD versions of the Star Wars movies on HBO and other premium cable channels, you knew it was just a matter of time before the movies found their way to Blu-Ray for home viewing. Announced at the Star Wars Celebration V, Lucasfilm Ltd. announced the complete Star Wars saga would land in stores in the Fall of 2011.
The Star Wars Blu-ray Box Set will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible picture and audio presentation, along with extensive special features – including documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives.
It doesn’t look like the collection will include the original theatrical release, but instead the modified, updated versions of the film from the 20-year re-release.
“Blu-ray is the absolute best way to experience Star Wars at home – in pristine high definition,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The films have never looked or sounded better.”
In case you are wondering, yes, I will purchase these on Blu-Ray and watch the hell out of them in the Major Spoilers Home Theater.
