That’s right my fellow geeks, the most beloved saga quite possibly on Earth has finally been confirmed for the Blu-Ray format according to StarWars.com.
All six movies will release in digitally enhanced versions in a Blu-Ray box set sometime in FALL 2011. Of course, George Lucas has confirmed there will extras included as well. No pricing details have been quoted at this time.
Despite all the growing concerns about the life expectancy of Blu-Ray with the dawning of the digital download age, this is quite a feather in the cap of Sony’s championed format. This could be the biggest boost to Blu-Ray yet as any and all Blu-Ray records could be shattered next year.
