Star Wars Blu-ray Release on the Horizon


About time! I have waited since I bought my PS3 for this day to come. The day the original Star Wars trilogy in all of its glory would released on Blu-ray. That day is more than just wishful thinking now!

Said Steve Sansweet, a Lucasfilm employee, "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."

No official date was given, but many assume it will be sometime next year to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the theatrical release of A New Hope. I can barely contain myself! Say what you want about the prequels (I often do) but the original trilogy is sci-fi gospel.

Nota Bene: That isn't official art, just wishful thinking.
