Star Wars Movies Coming to Blu-ray



Lucasfilm Director of Fan Relations Steve Sansweet revealed at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this weekend that the "Star Wars" films are coming to Blu-ray.

"We have been at work for a couple of years working on - I won't call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff - but, a very full set of all six movies on Blu-ray with lots of extra material," Sansweet told IGN. "We're finding all kinds of scenes from dailies that have never been seen before. Beyond all of those things that you know about… there are some real treasures."

While he wouldn't reveal when they will be released, he said "it won't be in the too distant future."

IGN said that Sansweet also addressed the reports that the "Star Wars" movies will be coming back to theaters in 3D. You can read what he had to say here.

The Digital Bits has also heard from their industry sources who are saying that the tentative release plan for this BD set is for October 2011. Of course, this hasn't been confirmed by LucasFilm and this date could indeed change.



Nice to meat you. If you know what i'm saying.
I heard George Lucas himself was going to be redubbing the films for the BR release.

Endangered Species
I also heard that Lucas is working on a 6-film Star Wars boxset.
Personally, I would prefer it in 2 separate boxes.
The first 3 (Episodes 4, 5 and 6) I would buy without hesitation.
The last 3 (Episodes 1, 2 and 3) not sure.
1 and 2 were such disappointments.

Hmmm
Ewoks now blink in Return of Jedi on Blu-ray


Controversially, Lucas is making new changes to the Star Wars Blu-ray set, coming September and fans have cried far and loud about them. Ready for more? Those cold, black eyes of the Ewoks will now have CGI blinking. Subtle, but very noticeable, especially for those fans of Return of the Jedi.

This is bulls**t, man.

&feature=player_embedded#!

The CGI Ewoks, the CGI Yoda, Darth Vader's "Nooooooo!" - what heck is going on? I can't be the only person here who wants the ORIGINAL movies.

At least Simon Pegg agrees with me:

Always loved Vader's wordless self sacrifice. Another sh**ty, clueless, revision like Greedo and young Anakin's ghost. What a f**king shame.

Is that Noooooo REAL?? If so then that is just sad, I am not a huge die hard Star Wars fan but I grew up watching the films and still like them alot. But that would completely make me not buy the BR discs. That is just,,, what the hell is that.

From The New York Times, August 31st:

On Wednesday, a press representative for Lucasfilm confirmed that this change will be included in the Blu-ray release, writing in an e-mail: “Yes — Darth says NO.”



Funny, I says "no", too.

I love Star Wars, and I love Blu-ray quality home viewing. But there's no way in hell I'm going to buy these things. I have my unedited DVDs of the original trilogy, that's all I need.

It's just sad that none of you jerks can appreciate the sheer brilliance and utter necessity of that "no" and the tremendous power it adds to the scene.

Screw you all.

>implying ewoks are not inherently creepy

George Lucas is like the Joan Rivers of movie directors. He just can't stop nipping and tucking away at his body of work.



I need a hobby. I think I'll start writing threatening letters to George Lucas. Shoulda thought of this years ago.

There are those who call me...Tim.
What irks me the most is that George Lucas will allocate resources to giving Wicket the Ewok more detailed eyeballs and make him blink, will add a beak to the sarlaac, will add new lines of dialogue to Darth Vader, will add Hayden Christensen to Return of the Jedi etc...


...but he won't fix the colours of the lightsabres!

Actually that's unfair, he has fixed some shots of the lightsabres. Just enough to make a trailer with anyway...

He's long since moved on from improving his vision, he did that in 1997. This is just a stubborn old man tinkering.

The no in episode 3 made sense, but not in episode 6. I mean, if I was the emperor and I heard my apprentice say no I'd start fryin his ass, too. Darth had to catch him off guard, man.

George Lucas is worse than those students that b***h about getting an A- on their assignments.

"What? You loved it but you didn't love it more?! There has to be a way for me to fix this! Oh God, please let me do it again!! No, I can't? Well, I'm gunna do it anyways and make you buy it again!!"
