    STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA is coming 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 entire Saga direct to your living room in gorgeous high definition and with pristine, 6.1 DTS Surround Sound.

    The comprehensive collection features numerous deleted, extended and alternate scenes, new documentaries and a cross-section of the countless Star Wars spoofs that have appeared in pop culture over the past three decades. Marking the first time ever that the full Saga is available in one complete collection, STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA ON BLU-RAY also features a coveted peek into the making of the Saga with vintage documentaries, audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, prop and costume turnarounds, retrospectives and more.

    Episodes I-III and IV-VI will also be available as distinct Blu-ray Trilogy collections (box art pictured below).

    Fans will get an exclusive first look at some of the collection’s extensive special features at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con – which marks Lucasfilm’s 35th anniversary as a Comic-Con presence. In 1976, the fledgling film company was looking for innovative, grass-roots ways to promote its underdog release, a film no one expected to succeed – a space opera known (at the time) only as Star Wars. One of the first film companies to reach out directly to core audiences by way of fan conventions, Lucasfilm will return to the venue to showcase the full evolution of the story with a special first look at STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA ON BLU-RAY.

    So ... I take it we're stuck with the permanently altered versions of the original trilogy then?

    All I know is that Lucas can re-shoot these films until he's blue in the face, but HAN SHOT FIRST
