I hope you’re ready to shell out more money to George Lucas.
Announced today at CES in Las Vegas — by Darth Vader himself, no less — the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray is arriving this September in three flavors: the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the complete saga. The first two will run you $70 retail, while the complete saga, which comprises a total of nine discs — six for the movies, three for more than 30 hours of extras — will be sold for $140. Amazon.com already has all three sets available for pre-order at discounted prices of $44.99 and $89.99, respectively.
Of course, Lucasfilm is quick to point out that the Blu-ray editions are all being made to show off the best possible audio and video. The special extra features include some brand-new, never before seen stuff like deleted scenes, an exploration of the Star Wars archives at Lucasfilm, and more.
So… will you be able to resist the power of the Force this time? Or will you shell out more money to once again own the latest edition of Star Wars?
