20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and George Lucas announced, in the Panasonic booth at CES, that the Star Wars saga will bow on Blu-ray disc this September.
The studio is releasing three boxsets to meet the expectations of fans:
Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray (9-disc set)
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)
Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible picture and audio presentation, along with 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.
There's no news regarding 3D Blu-ray disc editions. However, I'd be most surprised if Panasonic doesn't have an exclusive deal as part of a VIERA 3D TV pack-in.
