My love for this series is well known, as you can see from my first article for this site here, and I can’t wait for September to arrive!

For the first time, all six Star Wars movies will be sold together and this time there will even be the deleted and alternate scenes all of us hardcore fans have been waiting for!  Take a look at the most anticipated Blu-ray release for next year!

The most anticipated Blu-ray release ever — the Star Wars Saga — emerges from light speed this September 2011. For the first time, all six of George Lucas’ epic films (Episodes I-VI) are united in one complete set. Fans worldwide are able to pre-order now with online retailers.

    This announcement made my day! I can’t wait for September 16!!! I will be taking time off to watch this as well!

  3. Brian White

    It made up for the Verizon iPhone not being announced today 🙁

    Gerard I don’t get you. You get excited about some weird avant-garde Star Wars posters but not about this? I sense a disturbance in the force…

  6. Aaron Neuwirth

    The thought of someone buying just the prequels on Blu-ray humors me.

    Ignorant consumer: “let me start with these first three flicks, and if I don’t like them, I wont get those other movies, they’ll probably suck.”

  7. Gerard Iribe

    @Sean – not that I don’t like the first three films, but I’m over the hype of the SAME THREE FILMS! You can only over hype the same things before they become irrelevant.

    As far as the avant garde posters go, those are actually unique items within the context of the Star Wars universe which is different. It’s still hype, but a different kind of hype.

  8. Sean Ferguson

    There’s a reason they are hyped so much…it’s because they are awesome! I’ve loved these movies for as long as I can remember so I don’t care how much hype surrounds these movies, because in my opinion it is well deserved!

  9. Brian White

    I love them all!

  10. Gerard Iribe

    The prequels suck no matter what, and so do the scenes of Hayden being inserted into ROTJ, Inexcusable.

  11. Sean Ferguson

    Nothing can beat the classic trilogy but the prequels had plenty of good things as well. I didn’t mind Hayden being inserted into Jedi per se, but I didn’t like the way they did it. Overall, I liked the changes made to the series to make it more seamless. I do miss the original Fett voice though.

  12. Gerard Iribe

    Han shoots first, btw.

  13. Sean Ferguson

    Actually there is no first as Greedo never had a chance to shoot at Han in the original version! Han was too fast/sneaky!

  14. Gerard Iribe

    True, he blasted him from underneath the table. *what’s this hand doing*

  15. Gregg Senko

    So will the Blu-ray versions feature Greedo shooting first and Hayden’s ghost on Endor?

  16. Aaron Neuwirth

    If anything, there will be even more… “enhancements”

  17. Sean Ferguson

    I don’t know yet Gregg. There haven’t been any leaks yet but I would be shocked if there weren’t some changes, since Lucas has modified every release in some fashion up till now. I bet at the very least that there will be a new CGI Yoda for the Phantom Menace though.

  18. Gerard Iribe

    I hope that the UK version will be priced like the Alien Anthology set. If not, then I will hold off. A 9 disc set for roughly $52 shipped sounds about right to me.

    *crosses fingers*

  19. Sean Ferguson

    $90 for the six movies is a lot less that I thought it would cost. I think that’s a fair price but of course I would love it if it was even less. Lucas could have charged $150 for the set and many of us would have paid it so I’m glad he didn’t get greedy. 🙂

  20. Gerard Iribe

    @Sean – Greedy? Too late for that. What about all of those countless sets he’s released in the past? I’d say he kind of cut the fans a break with this one.

    Not by much, though.

  21. Gerard Iribe

    BTW, looks like the date has been changed to 9/27.

  22. Sean Ferguson

    Well each of those sets were released for a reason though. Whether it was because it was THX certified, widescreen, or the original or special editions, they are were at least different. I would have been more upset if he just kept releasing the same set over and over. I have a feeling that he saved the real goodies for the high def set!

  23. Gerard Iribe

    Nah, then he’ll release 3-D “exclusives” when those versions come out. Screw all that. I mean, if you want to give the man more of your money, then by all means.

    You’re giving him way too much benefit of the doubt when you know exactly what he’s doing. Milking it.

  24. Sean Ferguson

    And when the 3D versions do come out that will be another update. You’re right in the fact that he could make everyone wait until the 3D versions are done and just do one release, but do you really think the fans want to wait that long to see these movies on Blu-ray? I know I don’t. It’s taken too long as it is for my tastes. I’ll happily fork over the money for the inevitable 3D releases five years from now.

  25. Gerard Iribe

    Then his work is done.
