I’m a fan of the Star Wars world. I was at a local store and they almost got my $89.95 to buy the full first six movies, plus bonus content, of course! But I hesitated. I don’t know why I hesitated. But then this morning, I see the following:
Each Film Presented in Unique, Collectible Character Steelbook Packaging available November 10th
Also Available Newly repackaged Star Wars: The Complete Saga to be released on October 13th
Los Angeles, CA (August 5, 2015) – 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.
Here’s a hi-res look at the individual covers:
I don’t know if the following is included in the steelbook case series or not. But I like the artwork on this a little more!
I want the entire collection on blu-ray! Have any of you bought the recently released 9-disc set? I need some feedback here before I go and buy it and not wait for the above release! I think they’re still of the “Special Edition” variety. I don’t think they’ll ever release the series without being “retouched” by George Lucas, which is something I gather that fans want. I wonder why the majority of the covers were of the “bad guys”???
