Will there be a Star Wars 30th Ann dvd set?

I know we are only in February but I am starting to have doubts that Lucas will be releasing a Star Wars 30th Anniversary complete box set. I do believe the original Star Wars came out in the summer of 1977. Well I have yet to hear anything about a dvd box set coming out this year. Do people really think this set is going to happen this year?

I wouldn't doubt it. Star Wars has become a subscription service.

wasnt it not long ago when there were all the "Will Star Wars ever come out on DVD?!?!?!" threads?

Didnt Lucas say never?

I bet he has the next 5 releases already mastered and knows release dates.

star wars. what a merchandising scam that turned out to be... a scam i fall for everytime something new is released. fuckin' lucasfilm.

i've given that company so much money that i should have my name in the credits of every single star wars film with the title of "producer". for some reason, i'll bet we have more than a few "star wars" producers on this board.

I think after Episode III my Star Wars obsession ended. I just can't get excited about it anymore.

As for a 30th anniversary thing, I think they should have started marketing on it last year. And if they DO end up releasing anything, I'd only buy it if the extras were worth it.

i'll go on record with this prediction now:

this summer/fall/winter - all six films, remastered, extended, digitally enhanced, 3 discs per film, all set snugly inside of a replica of the death star. this set will rival the planet of the apes head in its coolness. it will retail for $99.99. in 2009 (for no apparent reason at all) they will re-release this mega ultra death star collector set with a small replica x-wing fighter. this set will retail at $113.99. in 2015, this set will be re-re-released.... etc.

So it looks like we have to wait until 2027 for the "real" 30th Anniversary Set.

Try more like $199.99 or $249.99 with the non replica set running for 89.99

You guys forget that, we will probably see a theatrical re-release before any dvds show up. Whether it will be 3-d is up for debate....lots of 2007 left, and I assure that they want your money

Amazing to think this is the 10th anniversary of the Special Edition releases. I remember sitting in the theater for Star Trek: First Contact and seeing the trailer for ANH: the little TV with the Death Star dogfight, the X-Wing breaking free onto the big screen, the first look at Jabba confronting Han in Docking Bay 94, and the rebel ships passing by Yavin in a newly enhanced visual effect.

Regrettably, I didn't go to any of them. I was a tightwad in those days-- still am, just less so-- and I couldn't justify the expense. Plus, I wasn't all that excited about Star Wars at the time. If Lucas's final versions (if such things will ever exist) were given a theatrical run before coming to DVD, I would be thrilled. And this time I would go.

They've been showing episodes 4-6 on television this week and its actually the 2005 versions therefore 2035 is for the 30th anniversary set.

If he wants me to buy into it....I want a 6 volume set on HD-DVD or Blu-Ray with everything that was on the previous release, plus plenty of new extras. I also want the originals PLUS the version that he has. Only then will I bite.

You forgot the Star Wars Holiday Special. The set would not be complete without that. And, finally, the long rumored animated Shadows of the Empire movie, both which would be exclusive to the set. Now that would be a set worth picking up!

I wouldn't be surprised if it did happen, seeing as how Lucas is a few Dignitaries short of a full Empire now.

Lucas has released a Star Wars DVD set every year since 2004.
Why should 2007 be any different?
Continue the tradition.
