Star Wars fans eager for a high definition box set of the saga should be happy to know that Steve Sansweet confirmed to Bryan Young from The Examiner that it's on the way...eventually:
"Yeah. I mean obviously we've been looking at that for a couple of years and I think one of the questions is when is the market penetration there and these days, will there be a market penetration before everything goes streaming? But we've been looking at an ultimate box set of the Star Wars movies, all six of the movies. And what special features would be. And clearly these days, if you did an ultimate box set and didn't do it in HD, Blu-ray, it just wouldn't make any sense. So now it's a matter of thinking okay, we've been thinking about this for a while, we know what kind of assets we want to use, we've done some work in cleaning up things, it's really a matter of making that decision of when's the best time to release it."
Bryan suggests that the release could very easily tie in with the launch of the live-action series. Click here for the full interview and here for the more specific piece on the Blu-ray news. We'll be sure to keep you posted as we hear more!
While on the subject of Mr. Sansweet, he also recently spoke with Digital City about something he knows just a little bit about, Star Wars fandom. (via ClubJade.net)
