Lucasfilms is going to be releasing another box set for the Star Wars movies, and this time on Blu-Ray. I think that’s pretty cool, especially since I only bought the VHS versions and skipped the DVD releases. Plus it’ll be nice having a copy of Episode V around again.

Bad news is from the sounds of it, all six will be released together and you wont be able to buy them separately. I realize I’m only a second generation Star Wars fan, but as fans, can’t we just forget about the prequels? I might even throw them out as they would go unwatched and have no purpose. Also, they original three will be the 1997 remastered versions with extra scenes and all. In the age of digital media, can’t we have the choice of taking those scenes out like on some films where we can choose between theatrical and director’s cut? I think that would be an awesome edition as I have never had the chance to watch the originals.

Also, incase anyone is interested, Gary Kurtz, co-producer of episodes IV and V, did an interview with the LA Times about his feelings about his work on the movies, and why he chose to leave before episode VI. Apparently it’s the first time in 30 years that he’s spoken publicly about the franchise and his negative feelings about some of the decisions that George Lucas started to make towards episode VI being made. I find it kind of funny the way George Lucas was an conceded money pinching ass hat even back then.

Maybe on BD we can finally discern just who shot first; Greedo or Han Solo.

Haha, in the remastered edition, I believe they edited the movie to make it so that Greedo shot first with some crazy neck-liquidating techniques on Solo. :stuck_out_tongue:

HA!!!
Any true SW fan, or those who’ve seen the originals not only on the big screen but also on VHS knows Han Solo shot first. That’s who he was, a smuggler/mercenary - a gun for hire who only later after joining the rebel alliance, for what he thought would be a substantial monetary reward, has a change of heart and finds his true noble calling and a hot babe.


#5

Lucas throws down again. It’d look good, but meh.


#6

This MIGHT be something to push Blu-ray sales but damn if you’re somebody who’s bought every incarnation (for some reason) of the 6-film box sets, do you really need this one?

Depends. If you just love upgrading, then this would be the ultimate edition for one’s DVD collection.
If not, I don’t see the point if you’re happy with the set you have now. Plus It’s going to be expensive as hell.


#7

Just another “Guess I’ll have to buy the White Album again” moment…


#8

If you could buy the original three alone, I might have bit. But I have no desire to rewatch the “prequel” trilogy ever again. “Nooooooooo!”

Also, knowing Fox and Lucas, it wil probably be outrageously expensive.


#9

I have my copies of course what I have is full screen but they have the original non-crud digital added scenes versions on them in widescreen. So not sure I’d want a Blu-ray version even though I do believe it would look great in HD since I’m sure they’d do a great full remaster instead of a half assed upscale and call it a remaster some are doing. I also still have sealed copies of the VHS box set.lol


#10

Just watch out, if they release a line of toys alongside the Blu-ray release, it probably means they added in even more useless crap into the movie that never belonged. Do they completely redo the music and sound bytes when they add scenes into the movies? I think that would make things needlessly harder.

Hopefully it looks better than Dragon Ball Kai… I couldn’t watch that after the first episode, even though I was excited for an abridged version of the show.

Well Hasbro has the retro-style packaging out now. It’s going to be a two years long line basically newer style production figures made to look older with retro packaging like from the 70’s and 80’s. Heck they even say Kenner and have a mail away for Boba Fett like the original ones did . I know Toys R Us has a retro packaged AT-AT coming.

I think the music was pretty much left alone. If I remember right Lucas actually shot these scenes back in the day with actors ,but for example the technology did not exist to make a green talking turd move at least realistically enough for Lucas. Of course the CGI looked far worse then a giant green rubber turd would have imo. :laugh:

[size=20]Lucas Talks Planned Star Wars TV Series[/size]
May 31, 2011 at 03:41 PM
A Wookie, a Droid and a Bounty Hunter walk into a bar…

While that may not exactly be the plot for an episode of any future Star Wars TV series, George Lucas does have a lot of material in mind. After six movies, a CG TV series that’s going into its fourth season in the fall, countless novels and comics and oh so much more, there is still vocal demand for something more. And Lucas, talking to the New York Post, explained how he has some fifty hours worth of stories in mind for the long gestating but never realized Star Wars TV series he wants to do. Why hasn’t it come to fruition yet? He says that his team is looking for “a different type of technology we can use so it’s economically feasible to shoot the shows”. With him being used to shooting big scale, big budget and so forth, working it into a TV marketplace isn’t easy so that’s where things stand, which is pretty much nowhere since they’re still looking for said technology doesn’t exist yet according to him.

Still, there’s plenty of potential for such a series that even long time jaded fans such as myself would be eager to see come to life. With Star Wars: The Clone Wars covering some fairly serious material most of the time in between the second and third prequel movies, this incarnation is supposed to deal with the time period between Episode III and Episode IV. Of course, things are always subject to change and we’ve seen plenty of hot air on the subject before. Case in point is back in 2007 when producer Rick McCallum said that it could run for up to 400 episodes and “it’s something that can go on for years and years. One of the ideas is that we’ll have multiple series going on in about two or three years’ time.”

Suffice to say, they’ve been throwing a lot of stuff at the fan (and fans) since first talking about it back in 2005 and so far nothing has really stuck. I’m rooting for a Cheers version of Star Wars that just takes place in cantina.

Seriously, the graphics in the first three movies were fine, and you can accomplish that level on a consumer grade laptop. Suck a dick Lucas.
