You can have your Androids and your tablets... the number one thing that fans of "Star Wars" are really excited about coming out of this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the announcement that the entire "Star Wars" saga – all six films – will be on Blu-Ray in September.
Darth Vader himself made the announcement at CES in Las Vegas on Thursday, saying, "The forces of the Empire will be at your disposal to assure the success of this endeavor."
Devotees of the saga are rejoicing on Twitter that they will soon be able to see every moment of the films in high-definition with "the highest possible picture and audio presentation," according to the press release on Starwars.com.
Three extra discs containing more than 30 hours of special features are also promised, with "never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes," sure to make fans' mouths water.
One question that hasn't been answered yet is which version of the original trilogy will be included on the discs, or if it will be more than one. There are the 1970s and '80s theatrical versions, the controversial 1997 "Special Editions," and the first 2004 DVD release, which tweaked the movies' visual effects even more.
No matter what version is released, there's little doubt that this will be one of the most popular Blu-Ray releases of the year, if not all time.
Will you buy "Star Wars" (perhaps for the second time or more) on Blu-Ray, or are you satisfied with the previous releases? Are you waiting to see if it will include the original versions? Share your view below.
