The official Star Wars website has been counting down until today (May 4th) with an announcement regarding the Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray.
The countdown site describes the upcoming Blu-ray release in September and contains a moving slideshow video of Blu-ray case art and concept art. The slideshow is unlocked by your country depending on the amount of social media sharing has occurred about the countdown. Fortunately America has unlocked the entire video.
“Bring home the adventure and share Star Wars™ with your whole family – when STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA comes to Blu-ray Disc from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment! To be released beginning on September 12 internationally and on September 16 in North America, the nine-disc collection brings the wonder of the entire Saga direct to your living room, where you can revisit all of your favorite Star Wars moments – in gorgeous high definition and with pristine, 6.1 DTS Surround Sound. Dive deeper into the universe with an unprecedented 40+ hours of special features, highlighted by never-before-seen content sourced from the Lucasfilm archives.”
The two trilogies will also be released in two packs. So if you only want to re-purchase the classic trilogy of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, then you are free to do so. But on top of this announcement, we hope you have a great Star Wars Day, and watch your favorite film on VHS, LaserDisc, Beta-Max or DVD.
