Star Wars. Blu-Ray. September.

Nothing I’m going to say is going to be even slightly more interesting than the press release, so… here’s the press release.

The most anticipated Blu-ray release ever — the Star Wars Saga —
emerges from light speed this September 2011. For the first time, all
six of George Lucas’ epic films (Episodes I-VI) are united in one
complete set. Fans worldwide are able to pre-order now with online

Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray will feature all six
live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible
picture and audio presentation, along with three additional discs and
more than 30 hours of extensive special features including

Flanked by a legion of his finest Imperial stormtroopers, Darth
Vader himself joined Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment President
Mike Dunn at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to announce the
release, vowing “The forces of the Empire will be at your disposal to
assure the success of this endeavor.”

“The Star Wars Saga is the most anticipated Blu-ray collection
since the launch of the high-def format,” Dunn said. “The epic franchise
pioneered sound and visual presentation in theaters and is perfectly
suited to do it again in the home, with a viewing experience only
possible with Blu-ray.”

“With all six episodes available for the first time in one
collection, this is a great way for families and home audiences to
experience the complete Saga from start to finish,” said Doug Yates,
Vice President of Marketing, Online, Distribution, Lucasfilm Ltd. “And
with the quality of high-definition, Blu-ray provides the most immersive
home experience possible.”

“The Star Wars franchise has been the most anticipated Blu-ray
release by Amazon’s customers,” said Bill Carr, Vice President of Music
and Video at “We think that Star Wars will be incredibly
popular with our customers, and we expect pre-orders to be very strong.”

The Amazon pre-order page for the six movie, nine Blu-ray set is here. If anyone wants to buy me a PS3… that offer is still open. Just putting that out there. (Via The Blu-Ray Blog)
