At the Star Wars Celebration V event this week, George Lucas announced that all 6 Star Wars films will be released on Blu-ray disc in 2011. I’m surprised it took LucasFilm this long to exploit another media format. Just imagine all the different re-imagined versions and bi-annual re-releases we can now get on Blu-ray!
As much as my inner Star Wars fanboy is tickled by this news, part of me wonders if fans have had enough already with this umpteenth release of the films. [Looks at JP who, I think, owns a laserdisc version of one of the films.] Or, is Blu-ray, the HD standard, the must-have version that fans have been waiting for?
Sound off! Will you buy the Blu-ray versions when they comes out?
