ORLANDO, Fla.--If you're a huge "Star Wars" fan and having all six of the George Lucas saga's live-action films on VHS and DVD isn't enough, get ready: The movies are coming out on Blu-Ray.

During a live interview onstage at the Celebration V fan convention here, conducted by "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, Lucas thrilled the crowd by announcing that the movies would be released on Blu-Ray in 2011.

Not long after, Lucasfilm and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment put out a press release offering a few more details. According to the release, the six films will come out on Blu-Ray in a boxed set in Fall 2011, and will be accompanied by some new documentaries, behind-the-scenes moments, and more special features.
