Star Wars on Blu-Ray
« on: March 5, 2008, 11:22 PM »
Fox is already exclusive to Blu-ray, and it is winning the HD format wars.  Infact, it already won since Toshiba said they're not continuing the HD-DVD drives after April.

When Star Wars is released, they should sell all in them in a Saga pack.  We may need to wait until 2012 for the 35th aniversary editions of the movies, completely remaster with the original versions of the OT too.

Anyways, do you want Star Wars on Blu-ray?

There's a rumor that it still won't be until October of 2011.

Yuck.

I like they're marketing scheme - well not really, but I just wonder how many more times I'll have to buy these movies.

I won't call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff

How can they keep finding stuff after all these years  ???

Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray

Sansweet announces Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray at C2E2

Quote
“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. 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.”

Seriously, why can't I find this on any Star Wars sites?

ETA: Oh, thank you for directing me to the topic.

I'm really happy to get some sort of "official" word that this is on the way.  I mean, I guess we all knew that we'd get it eventually, but it is nice to know that it is in the "not to distant future".  I'm surprised it isn't bigger news on the Star Wars sites really.  I don't know that I even saw it mentioned anywhere other than Yakface and maybe TFN, and I actually saw it at IGN first.

Anyways, I hope that rumor about Oct 2011 is untrue, it would be much nicer to get it this year.  Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if Sansweet/Lucasfilm consider next year "soon".  Although we know it won't work out this way, it would really be nice if they made this the end-all, be-all "ultimate" edition set of the entire Saga.  I know it would be tough to please all the fans, as something would always be left out that someone liked, but it would be nice if they went ahead and included all the goodies the first time around.  Wishful thinking.  I wonder if we'll see anymore tinkering with the movies?  I wouldn't be surprised to see the PT get a few things here and there, and honestly, I don't know if I'd mind as much as some of the OT SE changes.  Replacing the Yoda puppet in TPM would be one I would support, never really liked how that looked.

They could get the newly minted Blu-Ray discs done this year, but they put it off a year so they could produce the repainted figures, ships, books, CDs, etc. that will tie in with the giant media blitz  ::)

There is all sorts of great extras they COULD put in.  However, I wonder what will really end up being in it?I am hoping that the Luke/Biggs deleted scene would be on it as an extra.  I am kind of hoping to see the Ki-Adi-Mundi raid on the control ship deleted scene from Episode I but that might be asking for too much.  Anyway, this will get me to finally buy a blu-ray player.

My hope is that the original versions of the OT are on here.
Don't care about the SE and the "Special" Special" editions of the films.
If there are no Originals then I won't be interested.

I wonder if this will be the last one or will they come out with the blu-ray 3D version?

No. No. No. He named the dog Indiana!
