• Bring the Complete Collection Home: Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray

      The official StarWars.com site has been updated with details on their Blu-Ray release.



      Bring home the adventure and share Star Wars with your whole family -- when STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA comes to Blu-ray Disc from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment! To be released beginning on September 12 internationally and on September 16 in North America, the nine-disc collection brings the wonder of the entire Saga direct to your living room, where you can revisit all of your favorite Star Wars moments -- in gorgeous high definition and with pristine, 6.1 DTS Surround Sound. Dive deeper into the universe with an unprecedented 40+ hours of special features, highlighted by never-before-seen content sourced from the Lucasfilm archives.

      The comprehensive collection also features numerous deleted, extended and alternate scenes, new documentaries and a cross-section of the countless Star Wars spoofs that have appeared in pop culture over the past three decades. Marking the first time ever that the full Saga is available in one complete collection, STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA ON BLU-RAY also features a coveted peek into the making of the Saga with vintage documentaries, audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, prop and costume turnarounds, retrospectives and more.
      Episodes I-III and IV-VI will also be available as distinct Blu-ray Trilogy collections.
      Fans will get an exclusive first look at some of the collection's extensive special features at this year's San Diego Comic-Con International -- which marks Lucasfilm's 35th anniversary as a Comic-Con presence. In 1976, the fledgling film company was looking for innovative, grass-roots ways to promote its underdog release, a film no one expected to succeed -- a space opera known (at the time) only as Star Wars. One of the first film companies to reach out directly to core audiences by way of fan conventions, Lucasfilm will return to the venue to showcase the full evolution of the epic story with a special first look at STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA ON BLU-RAY.

        I like the box art a lot...something really different this time instead of the usual cut-n-paste cheesy PS stuff this DVDs have featured....

        Sure is lots of extras...plenty of material to check out over time. Unfortunate that some of the online stuff from over the years wasn't featured, There was one in particular called "The Journey" around the time ROTS was released, that was pretty cool. Ah well, there's always the next release right? At least it looks like there will be plenty of "new" material to comb over and that's a good thing...

        But of course, the highlight of the set is the films. I'm hoping the encodes are a high a bit rate and as pristine as possible, all color-corrected and clean. And BR sound really is something when it's good....here's hoping for a knockout release here...

        I'm not sure on the box art yet. It's a definite departure, but it also doesn't automatically scream SW to me (and I guess the subtlety could be nice). It's a bridge between the six films, which is cool. The art itself is kind of odd, though, like some kind of watercolor painting.

        Looks like the audio commentaries are carried over from the DVDs, but the ones from archival interviews should be cool.

        I've seen a few of the documentaries listed there. It'll be nice to have them collected in one place, and I don't know how many stones they have left to unturn in the behind the scenes department, but some more all-new stuff would have been nice. Though I like that they didn't overlap with the DVDs, aside from the commentaries.

        I'm most interested in the deleted scenes. Too bad they didn't give many details on those.
