Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have just announced today that the six Star Wars films will be released in unique, collectible character steelbook packaging that will be available in November, just in time for the release of the new Star Wars movie.
Each film from the saga is presented with new character packaging allowing fans to choose their favorite or collect all six for a limited time. The characters depicted will be The Phantom Menace – Darth Maul, Attack of the Clones – Yoda, Revenge of the Sith – General Grievous, A New Hope – Darth Vader, The Empire Strikes Back – Imperial Stormtrooper, and Return of the Jedi – Emperor Palpatine.
In addition to the collectible steelbook packaging, each single disc Blu-ray includes existing audio commentary with George Lucas and the film crew as well as audio commentary from archival interviews with the cast and crew.
The newly repackaged Saga includes all six feature films on Blu-ray, along with three additional discs containing more than 40 hours of previously released extensive special features.
These brand new steelbook editions will be available on November 10 as individual editions. In addition, a repackaged version of the previously released “Star Wars: The Complete Saga” – complete for now – will also be in stores on October 13 with a new packaging.
