For the biggest fanboys and fangirls, what could be sweeter than owning a copy of your favorite movie in its best and highest quality that you can enjoy? If you are one of the millions of Star Wars fans from all over the world, then this bit of news will definitely blow your mind.
For the very first time, you can now enjoy all six episodes of George Lucas’s Star Wars on Blu-ray! That’s right. The saga we all have followed and watched in awe in theaters for its remarkable sound and special effects can now be enjoyed in your own homes in a way they’ve never been seen before.
Blu-ray boasts a maximum storage capacity of five times that of a traditional DVD. The Blu-ray technology, because of its increased precision, allows data to be stored more tightly in its storage thus taking up less space. Having a much greater storage capacity and the ability to make use of additional advanced video and audio codecs will definitely take your audio/visual entertainment experience to a whole new level.
Darth Vader himself made the announcement in the recent Consumer Electronic Show 2011 (CES 2011) in Las Vegas that the Star Wars on Blu-ray will be released in September. But if you are one of those hardcore fans that just can’t wait to get your hands on it, online retailers are toying with the idea of preorders.
Star Wars on Blu-ray comes in a bundle but each trilogy can also be purchased separately. You may opt to get the Star Wars: The Prequel Blu-ray Trilogy, which will include Episodes 1 to 3, and Star Wars: The Original Blu-ray Trilogy which includes Episodes 4 to 6, separately, for only $69.99. If you however wish to purchase Star Wars: The Complete Saga, it will cost you $139.99. Believe it or not, his bundle comes with three extra discs of exclusive unseen footage, deleted scenes and alternate endings that audiences have never seen.
If you already own DVD or even VHS copies of the Star Wars saga, your overall Star Wars experience has paled in comparison to the stunning sound and picture you will get with Blu-ray. It’s likely to be the kind of cinematic experience George Lucas always intended.
