George Lucas keeps his baby safe. Star Wars fans seldom get a scoop on info, and Lucas usually is very behind the ball in releasing Star Wars products and projects — like the 25 year gap between “Return on the Jedi” and “The Phantom Menace” or the original trilogy taking years to get to DVD, and once it did it was the re-release with added new digital effects most fans didn’t want. But George Lucas finally announced that we’ll have the Saga on Blu-ray in 2011, but didn’t give an exact release date, according to a report by blu-ray.com.
We’re not sure which verion of the Saga we’ll get, either, but it sounds like they’ve been loading these babies up with tons of bonus features that will make your nerd alert set off on full blast. According to the report, they even showcased a never-before-seen clip (see video below).
For those of you who love movies and don’t own a Blu-ray player, stop wasting your time on DVD. There is nothing that looks better than a Blu-ray on a hi-def TV. Brian and I both recommend Panasonic Vierra 1080p plasmas with a Panasonic Blu-ray player. We can’t wait to see these films on Blu-ray. We’ll be so excited, we may even watch Episode I.
