George Lucas promises ‘Star Wars’ on Blu-ray in 2011
This weekend, during the Star Wars Celebration V, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced that all six movies from the popular Star Wars series will be released on Blu-ray, in the fall of 2011.
The films will come in The Star Wars Blu-ray Box Set.
Lucas did note that all the movies will be the “special editions,” since restoring the original versions (from the 80s) would “cost too much” and take too much time.
The box set will also include a plethora of documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives.
“Blu-ray is the absolute best way to experience Star Wars at home – in pristine high definition,” adds George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The films have never looked or sounded better.”
As a teaser, the company showed off a deleted scene from “Return of the Jedi:”
