20th Century Fox Home Entertainment just hit THE ROCK FATHER with news that they’ve partnered with The Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm, Ltd to reissue the original six film STAR WARS Saga as individual commemorative Blu-ray Steelbooks on November 10th. Additionally, STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA will be released in newly repackaged artwork on October 13th. These highly collectible films will be available for a limited time only and can be pre-ordered beginning August 7th. Being on STAR WARS overload ahead of December’s release of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, I can tell you – there’s no other film series that I’ve personally owned on so many different formats… though I don’t yet have the Blu-rays. Details below…
From the Official Announcement:
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; TheEmpire 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.
