All six ‘Star Wars’ films in Blu-ray box on pre-sale now

"Star Wars" (Lucasfilm)

The circle will be complete in September — for the first time all six of the live-action “Star Wars” theatrical releases will be united in one home-video set as the Jedi saga makes its debut on Blu-ray.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release “Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray” with a suggested retail price of $139.99 and it will contain more than 30 hours of extras, including deleted and alternate scenes, as well as an exploration of the exclusive “Star Wars” archives. The release was announced Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Retailers are already taking pre-orders and, since none of the six films has ever been available on Blu-ray, the release is expected to be a massive moment in home video.

For fans who want a smaller package — or have no desire to welcome Jar Jar Binks into their home —  the films will be sold in separate trilogy boxed sets with a $69.99 price tag.

    Hmmmm, headline "On Sale Now, All 6 Star Wars films in Blu-ray Box"……… Coming in September! Is it just me or is "on sale now" a lot closer to September than NOW?!?!

    Fix your false headline!

    The question is: Are episodes IV-VI original or "remastered"?

  3. hung says:

    They are the Special Editions. Not the unaltered Original Versions.

  4. skyjedi says:

    The real original films from 1977-1983 that started the legend are not even on this set. It is completely insane, not even the 1997 film version either just the 2004 done at 1080P. No Theatrical releases for the prequels either, if it was not for the bonus features no one would buy this junk.
