Star Wars Blu-ray Set in the Works

Posted April 17, 2010 08:10 PM by Juan Calonge

During a panel at the C2E2 comic convention in Chicago, Steve Sansweet, Lucasfilm's Director of Content Management and Head of Fan Relations, stated that the company has been working on a Star Wars Blu-ray set. "We have been at work for a couple of years working on—I won't call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff—but, a very full set of all six movies on Blu-ray with lots of extra material", said Sansweet.

Sansweet didn't give a date, but he said " it won't be in the too distant future."

The Digital Bits, quoting industry sources, says that Lucasfilm "tentatively plans the official Blu-ray release to happen in October 2011." Obviously, with the Alien Anthology coming later this year, a 2010 release of Star Wars can be safely ruled out, and considering that A New Hope opened theatrically in May 1977, late 2011 would be a natural choice for a 35th Anniversary Edition Anthology.

So, I guess it will take less time to make the jump on Blu-ray than on DVD.

Now, there's the inevitable issue of the versions that will be featured and the necessary deception it will bring.

Hey Steve & George- Speaking of "finding stuff" could you maybe find an HD version of the OOT for release? Please!!!!!!! Include the special editions and whatever new version you want as well, but please consider doing right by the original theatrical releases. The amount of fan goodwill this could engender would be off the charts.

About damn time. Yes it is still a good 18 months or more away, but this announcement is still great news, and I think announcing it this early is a good thing, it makes us aware that it is being done, and that it isn't being rushed, so when the set eventually comes out we should get outstanding transfers for all the films.

best news this weekend, i consider the 6 star wars films to be the pinicle of my wish list, i have no doubt that the original trilogy will look amazing (please mr lucas, don't fiddle around with them any more and please include both original and special editions)

The prequel trilogy should look outstanding, Phantom menace was the only one of them that had that old time look to it, and sith always looked the best, attack of the clones though was a mess it looked like a bad video game, its my least favourite film of the series, but hopefully they can make the bluescreen look a little more natural

also, even though i'm against changes to the OT, i would welcome changes or additions made to the Prequels, i think theres alot in there that lucas probabaly regrets (like gremlin puppet yoda in phantom menace, or rubber bodied C-3p0 in the droid factory in AotC)

Now let's just hope they have gone back in and corrected some of the lightsaber colors and audio mix mistakes that were on the dvd's and changed the TPM yoda to a cgi one instead of the crappy looking puppet they used for that one.

Good news i can wait till 2011. This year shaping up to be and expensive year with a lot of big Titles on the way for 2009. what i would like to see is a well design boxset for these Star wars films if those can remember the Laserdisc box set that came out it was like so heavy so pack full of extras and even a book on the life of George Lucas. what a treat is was when it came out.
and i still have it and its highly collectible. so the New Blu-ray set will sit right beside it

If you look at the original release date of A new Hope it was may 1977.

So the 35th Anniversary won't be till 2012 and not 2011 as noted by The Digital Bits,

Im guessing you wont see it till at least then.

Least its some positive news that Lucas is closely watching the blu ray market.

All we need now is the Indy Trilogy Back to the Future Trilogy and Scarface. They are the most wanted titles I want.

With the new documentary about the original trilogy coming out & looking at the statistics of how the LOTR blu did with the fans, not to forget the endless 1star ratings on amazon, way before it was even released.

I have reasons to believe, that Lucas will act upon the demand, and respect the audience's preference of having both versions included.

All we can do is, cross fingers, and wait.

I'm a film purist. I fit into the Star Wars group where my motto is "no theatricals, no purchase". Post 1980s Lucas finds his Star Wars movies perfect with awful computer effects. Alright, fine, but I loved the Blade Runner multi-cut set. It gives the viewers control! I hope Lucas goes the same route. I'd love to see HD masters of (1) The Theatrical Cut (2) The 1997 Edit (3)The 2004 Edit. I highly doubt this but we'll see.

Great news indeed. But I'm afraid some of you are in for a letdown if you think were getting the original theatrical cuts. Trust me, I wish for them too, but lets be real here; They're going to be the '97 special editions. Purists can balk, but they're still the same movies. If all the old movies had going for them were the optical effects, then what does that say about the rest of the film? Han shooting first was one scene, not the full two hour film. I'm not saying the special editions are better, but we all know were going to buy the BD's regardless of the version. You might as well enjoy it for pete's sake.

day one for the entire set, Lord are they gonna make some serious coin! the only way this could be better is that it have THX DTS-HD-MA 7.1 with both originals and the newly updated releases all in the same set to include all the extra bells and whistles. That would be Sofa King Sweet! 5-2011 is potentially looking sweet!

Flipping channels and they are showing making of 'Star Wars in Concert' on my PBS channel. Massive LED screen in HD! That would be great.

One strange thing is Lucas 'redid' Yoda for the show. Hopefully he's done tinkering with the movies. I honestly don't expect an HD master of the original 'unaltered' films, though that would be an unbelievable gift from him. At least show Han shooting first!

I hear Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" also used the same rapidly deteriorating film stock for effects work, but they managed to make it look pretty good on the blu-ray. The digital tools the technicians have at their disposal are far more advanced than what they had when the special edition was made, I bet restoring the original theatrical version is possible if Lucas doesn't veto the idea.

People need to accept the OT versions won't be included, the DVD's with the OT didn't sell that well and even if Lucas didn't need a sign, he has one, Fans of the OT are a small but vocal minority.
Lucas is going tamper with them some more and I hope he does, some of the CGI look outdated and now he has time to reflect he can make changes to ALL six films, making them a coherent whole, like he says he envisioned (which I don't fully believe, I think he had loads of ideas but not six movie's planned out)
I'm curious of the specials features, will he embrace PiP or go super-bit like Avatar and how much new behind the scenes footage will we see. We each film get it's own special features or a documentary about the whole saga?

After all the bitchin' fans did when the DVD release came about, Uncle George gave in and gave us the original theatrical cuts, but with no remastering for DVD. I find it hard to believe that as passionate as he is about making movies, he would want to reserve the original cuts on the best format so that all future generations can look at how movies like that where made long before technology was advanced to eventually upgrade to the special editions. From a narative perspective I get the whole thing. But for purists we all want what we watched the very first time. So with a 2 yr investment and a little more then a year till 10/2011, it is very possible that all the versions will be on this set. Plus if they port over all the LD definitive material and all the deleted scenes we have read about over the years. and maybe, just maybe he reunited the original cast for commentaries. Either way it will be a HUGE SELLER on Blu. and one of the fastest to outsell Avatar. and who knows maybe even the holiday special will make the cut...............

Uh, no. Consumers do NOT need to accept the atrociously altered versions of Star Wars and its inferior sequels. Lucas has displayed utter contempt for the people that made him the millionaire that he is. He'll get nary a dime from me for this serving of crap. There are far too many better films to be enjoyed.

(Besides, Lucas' best film is still "American Graffiti".)

I think a release next year has more to do with the Indiana Jones movies coming out this year than the Alien Anthology.

It makes me laugh when people make comments such as 'all purists want the original theatrical cuts'. What the hell is a purist? I'm a Star Wars fan going back to the original movies release in 1977, and would gladly forego the original theatrical cuts in favour of the latest version. You don't speak for everyone, and you don't speak for all fans - 'purists' or whatever.

Although I am a near-original version laserdisc hold-out, I am not a purist. I have no problem with Lucas' upgrades and alterations. If he has a few more to do I say go for it. I just want the option of seeing different versions as I choose. That puts me in the "completist" camp as opposed to purist.

It'd be awesome if he made third versions of each film of the Original Trilogy. They could be like final cuts, taking the best of the theatrical cuts and the Special Editions, and also based on the demands and complaints by fans, to make the best cuts of the films that will satisfy everyone. I doubt that, but wow that'd be awesome. Anyways, hope the release is awesome, packed with every extra feature existing to make for the most ultimate set yet.

@Kippy Your point might be valid on the OOT (Original Original Trilogy) DVD releases except for one problem. Those releases were non-anamorphic with no remastering done to them so they looked horrible. Fan releases have been released that look better than those.

As to all you people complaining about the fans/consumers that want the OOT you need to let people have their opinion. There is absolutely no reason George Lucas can't include remastered versions of the OOT the way they were when they first came out, flaws and all (and I don't mean the "flaws" he tried to fix by adding scenes in). As somebody has said, George Lucas has given no respect to all the fans that have contributed a boatload of money for this series. He would easily recover the cost of remastering the OOT to Blu-ray if he included.

Somebody included a link to a petition a couple pages back (which people stupidly marked down). The letter written for that petition brought up two nice points. Those points are the Blade Runner definitive collection with all versions of the movie in high quality on Blu-ray and the Close Encounters of the Third Kind which has 3 cuts on the Blu-ray release, all in high quality also. So there is absolutely no reason why George Lucas cannot give fans that want the OOT what they want with this release.

How ironic is this news? I was just literally watching my ROTS DVD for the first time in a long time. It looks good from a distance of 10+ feet, but once you get closer, you can definately tell the difference between the limited 480i (upconverted to 1080p) resolution to true 1080p on BD.

Now as for which versions these new BD versions will be, I'm going with all new 2011 versions of all 6 films. Lucas has said that even since the 2004 OT versions, that he wanted to enhance and fix them even further. Quite frankly, I hope they redo the saber effects and possibly the laser blasts in ANH and TESB. And as for TPM, I'm betting we get the new digital Yoda that they were workinhg on years ago.

Please folks, enough of the "OOT or no sale" BS. It's not gonna happen. You have got to understand that once the original film elements were restored by Lowry for the 2004 editions, they included the changes of the '97 SEs. Why do you think the DVD release that included the OOT wasn't restored and non-anamorphic? Because Lowry didn't restore those versions. Lowry restored the '97 versions.

Now then, I'm probably in the minority here in that I think the Lowry restorations didn't go far enough. The inconsistant light saber effects, both in color and in girth (see Kennobi vs Vader duel in ANH). All saber effects in the OT need to be redone, even in ROTJ. I also hope that the hand blaster effects in ANH and possibly TESB are enhanced...changed from the blurry red smears to the white-centered core with orange glow around them like those used everywhere else. I know it'd take a lot of work, but if they're gonna do it right, this would be the biggest enhancement that would make a real difference.

I also wouldn't mind seeing an all new scene in TESB of Vader and the Snow troopers fighting their way into the Rebel base. They could probably do this all in CG now with some motion capture.

@Lincoln6Echo It is not BS. As I said in my other comment, other directors have released definitive collections of their movies (Blade Runner and Close Encounters of the Third Kind). Lucas is being truly selfish considering it is the fans that made these movies so popular and who spent so much money on these movies from the VHS versions to the Laserdisc versions than the DVD versions and eventually the Blu-ray versions. The fans should be able to have the version that they want on Blu-ray. There really is no reason not to include all the versions on Blu-ray in high quality.

When the "STAR WARS" movies were released individually on DVD with the theatrical cuts on the flip side I was an entertainment journalist and through a goof by Fox marketing got an exclusive phone interview with one of the top people at Lucasfilm.
I asked him about the middling quality of the 1977, 1980 and 1983 theatrical cuts on the DVDs and he defended the quality saying that they were only a special feature, that he had gone to George and said that as a special feature for the individual editions they should include the theatrical cuts. Since the theatrical cuts no longer existed they looked at all the previous home video editions and decided the best quality was for the laser disc editions and so they ported over those transfers.
The lesson to be learned is that even if the theatrical cuts are included on the Blu-rays they will only be the laser disc transfers, which have already been on the DVD releases.

The Alien Anthology is a major set release, and is Fox's Tentpole catalog release for the last quarter of the year. I'd imagine that they don't wanna overload consumers with too many pricey blu ray sets for x mas. The Alien Anthology will probably retail between $60-80 USD. The Star Wars set will probably top out some where over a $100USD. I agree with their idea, I don't think I could convince my wife to let me add any more Blu rays to my X-mas list. Not with Alien Anthology, Ben Hur, Metropolis, Last of the mohicians, sound of music, and all the rest coming out and filling up my x mas list.

By "work" they mean "memos typed and sent through internal mail and kicked around for a couple of years". The telling comment is that Sansweet says he wouldn't call these Ultimate Editions. Get ready for LOTR-style griping for the next five years, until Blu-Ray is on the way out, and then...maybe...you'll get the Prequels with the deleted scenes re-inserted. Until then, you'll have to settle for a CGI Yoda in The Phantom Menace.
