Are you getting "The Story of Star Wars" DVD?

If you're buying "Revenge of the Sith", will you be getting it at Wal-mart to receive the bonus disc (that costs $5 extra)?



Walmart Exclusive: The Skywalker family is at the heart of the Star Wars saga. Now hear the inside story of Luke and Anakin Skywalker from the characters who witnessed it in never before seen footage.
"Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith" - The Star Wars saga is now complete on DVD with "Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith." Torn between loyalty to his mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the seductive powers of the Sith, Anakin Skywalker ultimately turns his back on the Jedi, thus completing his journey to the dark side and his transformation into Darth Vader. Experience the breathtaking scope of the final chapter in spectacular clarity and relive all the epic battles including the final climactic lightsaber duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan. Walmart Exclusive Bonus Disc Includes: The Skywalker family is at the heart of the Star Wars saga. Now hear the inside story of Luke and Anakin Skywalker from the characters who witnessed it all: the famous droid duo C-3PO and R2-D2! Episodes IV, V and VI are explored in "The Story Of Luke Skywalker," which follows the young man escaping from his daily chores on Tatooine to his becoming a hero in the Rebel Alliance. In "The Story Of Anakin Skywalker," you'll go behind the mask of the greatest Star Wars villain and discover how Darth Vader started life as a young Podracing champion on Tatooine and later became a headstrong young Jedi seduced by the dark side of the Force. With clips from the Star Wars films, C-3PO and R2-D2 take you on an hour long journey through the saga and prepare you for the explosive final chapter: "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge Of The Sith."

For sure. I plan on going early in case 90% are packaged with FS. It wouldn't be the first time.

I just don't know if it's worth missing out on the Best Buy lithograph. It seems like this DVD will be a hour-long promo. I'll probably wait and hopefully get a review of the the it first.

Don't know for sure about Canada, but lately they have had most of those "package" discs that they've had in the states (the Hitch/Will Smith Concert set, and other 'promo' items similar) So I'm hoping they have it... otherwise, I'll go to Future Shop for the free T-shirt.

If you use ebay at all, I think you'd be silly not to. Even if you don't want it, you'll probably be able to sell it for 4x its worth in a few months, paying for the movie.

It doesn't say "Wal-Mart" or mention wal-mart on the packaging does it? It's just an exclusive that Fox signed after they produced it, right?

I hate Wal-Mart more than I love Star Wars (I have vowed to never step foot in Wal-Mart again)...So, Ill avoid this one and just pick it up somewhere else.

Considering you can get the DVD by itself for 15 bucks at Amazon, the bonus disc now costs a bit more than $5. And I'm also holding out for a prequel boxset...

Probably not, because a) I don't know if Walmart in Canada is carrying the bonus disc and b) I hate Wal-mart.

The DVD sounds like it's very child-oriented...I'm skipping it.

Is this "Story of Star Wars" a newly-produced documentary? Or has it been around before?

Sounds like it's just a recap of the 6 movies. I think i'm going to pass, unless early reviews are great.
