'Star Wars' Blu-rays coming in September Fox and George Lucas have announced today that they will bring the highly-anticipated 'Star Wars' films to Blu-ray in September.
The movies will be available as three different sets.

'Star Wars: The Complete Saga" will include all six of the movies, along with 3 special features discs which have 30 hours of extensive special features, including deleted and alternate scenes.

The 'Prequel Trilogy' set will include Episodes I through III (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith) and a special features disc while the 'Original Blu-ray Trilogy' will include Episodes IV-VI (1977's A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Backand Return of the Jedi).

Amazon is selling the Complete Saga for $90 on pre-order, but the MSRP is $140. Each individual set is $70 MSRP.

Says Fox (via THR):

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.

But then again it is still star wars, good series but after lucas got charged with several counts of multiple rape charges towards star wars, storm troopers and luke himself. Star wars does not have that fuzzy feeling it used to have.

But the question remains: will these be the un-digitally altered "Han shots first" original versions???

Exactly what I was thinking. I was so disappointed when I bought the DVD set to find that it was the "New" versions, which I had forgotten existed... Thankfully, they released the original cuts as "Special editions" later on.

No way I'm touching this until I get confirmation that Han shoots first, and CGI Midget Jabba is nowhere near Docking Bay 94.
