Star Wars To Hit Blu-ray Shocker
With the sound of cash registers all over the land opening and George Lucas backstroking through his lake of gold like bearded Scrooge McDuck comes the announcement that Star Wars is coming to Blu-ray.
Head of “fan relations” Steve Sansweet mumbled something about it being the ultimate set last year but when IGN caught up with him this weekend, he seemed to want to distance himself from the tag.
“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.”
New treasures eh? What else could there possibly be to add? The lost Princess Leia shower scene perhaps? Funny how new stuff turns up every time there’s a chance for wringing more money out of the fans isn’t it?
Anyway, if you’re desperate to get Star Wars on Blu-ray, it’s being rumoured for an October 2011 release.
