Star Wars: The Complete Saga is now on Blu-ray
What happens when companies come up with a content vehicle that is able to tote around a whole lot of information on a single disc? Why, production houses try to cram in as much information as possible, more often than not re-releasing old stuff with slightly more updated data. I must say that George Lucas is a master of earning every single last penny from you after making you hooked on the movie franchise opium known as Star Wars.
His latest money making foray is not yet another trilogy with a terrible storyline and poorly renditioned aliens, but rather, to release the entire Star Wars saga on a Blu-ray set. Aptly known as Star Wars: The Complete Saga, this 9 disc Blu-ray set (yes, you read that right – we are looking at nine discs, and hours upon hours of content!) might just overload you with a lifetime’s worth of Star Wars that you end up switching allegiance and be a Trekkie instead after that.
Star Wars: The Complete Saga from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will hit the markets this coming September 12th internationally, while those living Stateside will have to wait for at least four more days. In the 9 discs, you are able to revisit all of your favorite Star Wars moments, right from the moment when you first saw the Death Star to the transformation of Anakin Skywalker into Darth Vader, and of course, your eyes will be treated to a gorgeous high definition display accompanied by pristine, 6.1 DTS Surround Sound.
There are more than 40 hours of special features, highlighted by never-before-seen content which have been specially sourced from the Lucasfilm archives to keep long time fans happy. This comprehensive collection will also come with a bunch of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, new documentaries and a cross-section of the countless Star Wars spoofs that have made their way in pop culture over the course of 30 years.
Would you be getting a slice of the action for yourself? At least it keeps the PSN-less PS3 active as you use it to watch those Blu-ray discs…
