Woodsy's World of Star Wars - STAR WARS BLU-RAY RELEASE!

OK fans, did I not just list this announcement as one of my TOP TEN from 2010?  After you're done doing kartwheels down the hallway, catch your breathe and read this!  At 11:30 am PT today coming from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vega$, Lucasfilm announced the official release of the Blu-ray set coming to a galaxy not too fary away this September 2011! Winning big - woo hoo!

Darth Vader surrounded by his Imperial Stormtroopers 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.’’

For the first time, all six of George Lucas’ epic films (Episodes I-VI) are united in one complete set. Thanks to Eric Geller at theforce.net I found out you can pre-order the complete badboy set on Amazon.com and for 36% off retail!  Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing three sets:

- Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray (9-disc Set includes all six films)

- Star Wars: Prequel Blu-ray Trilogy (3-disc set includes Episodes I-III)

- Star Wars: Original Blu-ray Trilogy (3-disc set includes Episodes IV-VI)

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 never-before-seen deleted and alternate scenes, an exploration of the exclusive Star Wars archives, and much more.

Check out this TOTALLY AWESOME trailer!

“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.”

Is the the Force with us?  Hell yeah!
