I think it would be significant if they release it in May.

Not a chance.  I mean, it'd be cool and all, and I can kinda see some sort of theatrical re-release in May (although that would be unlikely, as they'd be directly competing with next summer's blockbusters like Spidey 3).

But no way they'd release any new DVD set in May.  Not only would they be too close to the discs that just came out last month, but they'd be missing out on a ton of Christmas sales, too.

And I think, with the exception of the first Clone Wars disc, every SW DVD they've released has come between the months of September and December.  That's all three prequels, three sets of the originals, Clone Wars Volume 2, and the Ewoks and Droids discs.  Even the Indy sets, too, if you want to include those.  They just really like releasing crap around this time of year.

I think the only time they've really strayed from that pattern (besides CW) was when they released the Phantom Menace VHS tape in April, 2000.

Chances are George will leave something out so we can buy it again in 2008.

Fantasy DVD set;

All the above
Holiday special
Ewok movies
Ewoks the complete series
Droids the complete series
Clone wars the complete series
Complete soundtracks for all movies
Parody clips (SNL, Simpsons, Family Guy, etc)
R2-D2 shaped DVD case
We will never see the Holiday special, george hates it. Everything else would be cool! :)

It will happen but not until each one is released individually.

They have many years to continue to take our money.

As to 2007 release, that is not a surprise.  30th?  C4? DVD?
It will be a crazy and expensive year.

My concern, as others have post, they will leave something  out.

They really need to do a 12 pack.  Each film comes with its own BTS (deleted scenes, usual bells and whistles w/kitchen sink), updated commentaries  (actors on one, ILM (on aoother), Lucas, etc. (on its own).  I did not care for them being all at once for the 2004 release.
 Always felt Empire of Dreams was excellent but it should have been longer.

But I have a feeling they will wait for another anniversay.
It's not over yet.
Hello.

With the Box Set coming, I was wondering if they do all of the formats (DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray) that would be sweet.

And is Lucas going to re-re-release SW Saga onto Theaters.

Well I am not surprised really.  They did go to the well too many times in a row there.  They should have just waited to put the "original" version on the 6 box set and sold it at the end of this year.  Oh well.  They have nobody to blame but themselves.  Personally, I can wait anyway.

I agree. I have what I want of SW on DVD, so I'm good.

Yeah, it wouldn't necessarily surprise me if they held off now either.  It seems they went a little too crazy with all of the releases the past couple of years.  Part of me wouldn't mind if they just took their time and did "ultimate super duper fantastic" versions of the OT one at a time - like putting out a new version (with deleted scenes, both versions of the movie, and I guess any updates George has thought up) of ANH this year, then ESB when its 30th Anny hits, and the same for ROTJ.  It would spread things out a bit at least that way :P.  Of course, like Ben mentioned, I'd be happy with what I have at this point too if this is it.  But you know it isn't ;).

"I just don't get Team Lucas anymore. They release the same DVDs we all already own last year and try to pull the "Hey, we're doing you all a favor by giving you the special non-anamorphic, zero-effort original versions as a bonus item!" and then they're actually flummoxed when they don't sell. What the REST of us know, is that they didn't sell because they were crap, and because everyone is waiting for the damn box set."

I think that paragraph from the article pretty much sums it up.

Now that Blu-Ray has won, when do you think we'll have the master box set, this time around?

Maybe this August to coincide with the Clone Wars 3D premiere (unlikely since I think we would've heard by now) ... maybe 2009 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of TPM or the DVD of the Clone Wars movie ... maybe 2009 or 10 to coincide with the premiere of the live-action series.

I doubt they'll just drop it into the release schedule on its own; it's a question of what they will piggyback it onto for maximum effect.

It definitely won't be this year.  Lucasland has their hands full enough already with Clone Wars, Force Unleashed, and Indy.  It'll be some year when they don't have anything else going on, anything else to promote.

And if it takes them as long to do Blu-Ray as it did with DVD, we could be in for a long wait.  I wouldn't be surprised if they waited until 2012 and did it with the 35th anniversary.  (Hope they release it before the world ends late that year.)
