Long Story Short: It comes out on September 2011 so say ign.



QUOTE
Darth Vader, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Lucasfilm officially announced the Blu-ray release of the entire Star Wars saga today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The Blu-rays are now available for online pre-order and are slated for release September 2011.

All six feature films in George Lucas' epic sci-fi saga will be available for the first time in one complete set. The following three distinct sets will be released:

Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray (9-disc Set includes all six films)

Star Wars: Prequel Blu-ray Trilogy (3-disc set includes Episodes I-III)

Star Wars: Original Blu-ray Trilogy (3-disc set includes Episodes IV-VI)

The Complete Saga BD will include three additional discs and more than 30 hours of extensive special features including never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes, an exploration of the exclusive Star Wars archives, and much more.

Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray will be available for $139.99 US/$179.99 CAN and the Star Wars: Trilogy Sets for $69.99 US/89.99 CAN. Pricing for each set will vary by international territory.

Flanked by Lord Vader and his Imperial Stormtroopers, Fox Home Entertainment President Mike Dunn appeared at CES and said, "The Star Wars Saga is the most anticipated Blu-ray collection since the launch of the high-def format. ... The epic franchise pioneered sound and visual presentation in theaters and is perfectly suited to do it again in the home, with a viewing experience only possible with Blu-ray."


EDIT: I need to buy a blu ray player. And $180? I think I'll wait for that to drop down a bit in price too.

If they come with the original, unaltered theatrical versions as well as Lucas's "re-imaginings," I'll probably pick up a copy. I've never owned any previous versions of these movies and I've always wanted to. Don't know about $180 dollars though.

According to XE.com, presently: 140.00 USD = 139.523 CAD

So basically, we're being ripped off. Once again. Plus you might be able to get it back over the border sans tax.

I think I'll pass on this, though. I'll rent it to see what the quality is like, but I'm no Nute Gunray. There's only so far I'm willing to be taken for a ride.

Meh, pass. Unless George has a sudden turn of heart (if he even still has one) and releases the original takes on III-IV, then I can easily pass this up. I like me some Blu-Ray HD, but the re-imagined versions just aren't worth it. I already have all six on DVD (I got the prequels for the Rifftrax-viewing) and that's all I need.

The base price is the reported $140 USD, cut down to $90. Similarly, Amazon.ca's original price is $180, but cut to $125.

http://www.amazon.ca...;pf_rd_i=915398

Still a rip considering $90 USD is $89.73 CDN. Not that I'd have bought it either way, but the phenomenon isn't confined to Blu-Rays.

After getting a Blu-Ray player for Christmas I was wondering when Lucas would release Star Wars on Blu-Ray. Here's hoping the special features are worth buying the saga on yet another format (maybe they'll include the Holiday Special icon-fire.gif )

Speaking of the altered versions, my girlfriend saw Star Wars for the first time last year, on her request (we've been trying watch through all the well-known films either of us have missed). We watched the film on DVD, so it was the altered version. Even having not seen Star Wars before, she picked out the obtrusive CGI pretty much immediately. I hadn't seen the film since the 1997 cinematic re-release, and the computer effects were more out-of-place than I remembered, just not gelling with the rest of the visuals. I also hope that the original films are an option on the BDs, not because I'm a Star Wars purist, or a fan of the franchise (I'm neither), but because they don't look so damn awkward.

If they ever are, it won't be with this first round. The restoration of the unaltered scenes simply hasn't been done; and George Lucas certainly isn't prioritizing it. Even the DVD releases of the theatrical cuts a few years back were simply transfers of the old 90s Laserdisc; letterboxed widescreen as opposed to anamorphic enhancement, etc. Though it probably wouldn't have been too difficult to simply restore the unaltered scenes up to the quality of special edition and use DVD's seamless branching feature to include both cuts on the same disc, they weren't willing to do it.

Someday, maybe. But not this time.

iam just glad they split it. I really have no need for Blu-ray versions of the prequels. Its bad enough i have Ep2 and 3 on dvd rotting in my collection.
I dont need their blu ray counter parts uglying up the place.

Man I hope they have both the original and updated versions on the disc's tho, it would be nice to see the Han shot first/old Anakin version without having to drag out the VCR.

I am of the belief that we will never get the original "Star Wars" trilogy released because George Lucas simply no longer thinks of the originals as his definitive version of the films. The special editions are now what he probably considers to be the definitive films now. He has said that he was never truly pleased with how the films turned out and it's no wonder that now with the technology available to him that he went back and alter them. We as fans can bitch and complain all we want (and will continue to do so) but frankly Lucas can do what he wants with them. I don't subscribe to this theory that filmmakers shouldn't be allowed to alter their works, they can do whatever they want and Lucas more so than others since he basically owns Star Wars. I know that I'm in the minority here but I really don't think it is really productive to continue to complain about something we have no control over. Maybe one day we will get the originals released but for now that isn't a priority. Sorry about the rant...just needed to get that out.

All of that said, I must admit that I might buck up and get a blu-ray player now just for this.

Does anyone else thing George Lucas will change anything else for the Blu-Ray release? I know when the DVD's came out some bits were changed slightly (better looking Jabba CG in ANH, Boba Fett's voice etc.) so what's to stop him tweaking a few more bits here and there?
I can just see him re-dubbing the Stormtroopers to have Temuera Morrison's voice, to make the connection between them and the Clone Troopers more obvious icon-primal.gif

At the end of the day they are his movies and he can do whatever he likes with them. It would just be nice if we could have the original original films as an extra. He still gets to have his definitive version, and we get to see the originals as they were back in the day. Plus I'm sure it would guarantee a lot of extra sales.

One thing I would like (which would probably never happen) is an alternate audio track that has David Prowse's original voice for Vader. Watching him speak in a west country accent throughout the films would be quite amusing icon-hotrod.gif
