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.
I've been covering Celebration V as the last stop on Road Trip 2010. Stay tuned for a more complete story on the Lucas/Stewart interview.
Since June 23, Geek Gestalt has been on Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast over the last four years, I've been looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation, and more throughout the American northeast. You can follow my progress on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip and find the project on Facebook. And you can also test your knowledge of the U.S. and try to win a prize in the Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
