Star Wars Confirmed for Blu-Ray

At a time like this, there is only one thing to say. And that thing is: OMG! OMG! OMG!

Yes, according to the IGN, tweets coming in from the C2E2 comic book convention in Chicago report that Steve Sansweet of Lucasfilm confirmed that all six Star Wars movies are being readied for Blu-Ray release, along with extras.

Sansweet reportedly said the following:

“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.”

There are, as of yet no, details on a release date or any changes to the films.

After what many agreed was a lackluster showing for Lord of the Rings on Blu-Ray, geeks the world over will likely be excited for the high-def arrival of these films in the home.

And you gotta’ admit, regardless of what you though of Episodes 1-3, they looked spectacular on DVD when they were released. One can only imagine how good they and the original trilogy will look in 1080p.
