If you follow STAR WARS, then you might’ve heard rumblings that the original STAR WARS Saga would finally be coming to Digital HD this year. In large part, the release was a mystery – one fueled by last month’s release of six “Digital Collection” box sets of Hasbro action figures, each containing four characters from one of the films. Toys on shelves, but no official word on the release… until now. On April 10, yes THIS Friday, The Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., and 20th Century Fox today will release The Star Wars Digital Movie Collection. For the first time ever, all six epic films in the Saga, from The Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi, will be available on Digital HD throughout the galaxy – or at least here on Earth via Disney Movies Anywhere, Amazon Instant Video, iTunes and more. Check out the trailer below…
“Since the debut of the first film nearly 40 years ago, Star Wars has become a worldwide phenomenon with legions of fans from every generation. It’s only fitting that audiences enjoy this legendary saga and its many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories on a wide variety of platforms, and we’re very excited to finally bring all six films to Digital HD for the first time.”Alan Bergman, president, The Walt Disney Studios
“We’re thrilled that fans will be able to enjoy the Star Wars saga on their digital devices wherever they go,” commented Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “These films broke new ground in technology, design, sound, and visual effects, and we’ve created some very special bonus material which delves into the saga’s rich history, including new and never-before-released conversations between legendary Star Wars artists — the masters who helped George bring his iconic universe to life.”Kathleen Kennedy, President, Lucasfilm
You can get these on Disney Movies Anywhere and most other Digital Retailers (including Amazon and iTunes) – complete with bonus features – on April 10.
