According to StarWars.com, the release date for all 6 Star Wars movies on Blu-ray has moved from September 27, 2011 to September 16, 2011, one week sooner than previously announced.

Here is the official announcement amended with the new release date:

The most anticipated Blu-ray release ever -- the Star Wars Saga -- emerges from light speed this September 16, 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 retailers.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release Star Wars in three distinct sets to meet the needs of every Star Wars fan:

* 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.

Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray will be available for $139.99 US/$179.99 CAN and the Star Wars: Trilogy Sets for $69.99 US/89.99 CAN. Pricing for each set will vary by international territory.

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 Amazon.com. "We think that Star Wars will be incredibly popular with our customers, and we expect pre-orders to be very strong."

Waoh I didn't write this

I cut and pasted it from IESB

LOL, I kinda wondered if that was the case & frankly I almost started to ask you if you wrote this, but I didn't want to come off as implying you weren't capable of stringing together a few sentances. *smile*

the GL flick sounds great..

as for JLA... can't they figure out a way to get the current Bale Batman in it? Doesn't seem too difficult for me for them to get Bale and Routh in it as Bats and Supes...

comic fans like that sorta thing..

WOW! Great review Wheeljack! Ok, 1st i'll say that YES, that script out line does sound pretty good. The only consern i'd have is all this talk about epic space battles.

Don't get me wrong, I think it would be wicked to see GL do his thing in space, but from what Wheeljack said it kinda sounded like the bulk of the fight & FX will take place in space perticulery near Oa fighting Legion or Sinestro.

IMO I think it'd be better (for continuty & human relating sake), to keep GL some what linked to Earth. Meaning for the 1st film let's see GL wip up all thoes constructs on Earth. That way when we see let's say a gigantic green crane (an earth vehicule), it'll have more meaning on earth IMO. hmmm, I just wonder.

Maby that the issue here. thats just what the makers are hoping to avoid! If this is a space film then we would'nt expect to see constructs so much. Instead we'd be more accecpting of the notion of "lazer" (hehe I always feel like Dr. Evil when I say that) fire & cutting swords & defence bubble constructs. In other words, if the majority of this film is held in space, then its safe to say Jordan will use his ring more like John Steward. which for me anyway, might not be so bad (constructs are cool & all, but its not what realy draws me to the GL Corps).

But wheather its a space baced movie or earth baced, I want to walk away from this flim REALY FEELING like I understand just how effin deadly & distructive these rings are. After all who has'nt gotten a ring out of a bubble gum machine before? & that's just the subconsicence attitude a lot of people will have about the thought of a "power ring". I mean the very sound of it comes off a lil ghey.

Oh yeah & one more bit of advice about how to make it. If you do go the space movie route & you don't get it right, then get ready to have people say "its just like Star Wars, but instead of light sabers they use rings". That's why I think it'd be good for the 1st one to be near earth, & if u use constructs it'll seem that much less like SW.
