Finally! The classic Star Wars series is coming to Blu-Ray! We knew that it was eventually going to happen but it was officially announced this weekend at Chicago’s C2E2 convention. Lucasfilm Director of Fan Relations, Steve Sansweet, made the announcement saying,
We have been at work for a couple of years working on—I won't call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff—but, a very full set of all six movies on Blu-ray with lots of extra material. We're finding all kinds of scenes from dailies that have never been seen before. Beyond all of those things that you know about… there are some real treasures.
This is definitely going to be a must own for any Star Wars fan. The special features alone will make buying this blu-ray Star Wars set worth it. I grew up on Star Wars, and I’m a huge fan, so I’ll watch whatever I can get my hands on. There’s no doubt it will look amazing in blu-ray as well. As for when the blu-ray set will come out?
We're not ready to announce exactly when it's coming out, but it won't be in the too distant future.
So at least we know that the Star Wars blu-ray set is being developed, it will be available fairly soon, and it will be packed full of awesome special features, with stuff we’ve never seen before! Can't wait!
