Like I said earlier, if they plan on including promo stuff for Rogue One, possibly a scene in 3D, then that's a good reason to delay. Or even promo material for Episode VIII. We have a new Star Wars movie coming out every year for the next few years. Adding exclusive material to the 3D set would spark a small rise in sales.

I don't think it'd make too much sense to actually announce that a 3D is coming, then just cancel it. Disney/Lucasfilm knows there will be enough interest to release it. Niche yes, but people still buy it.

They just want us to buy the Blu Ray, then re-buy the set for the 3D version later. Like we'd fall for that.

Okay, I will. But I won't be happy about it.

Crazy thought - weren't 3D conversions of the original 6 also done at some point?

Maybe fall will be a 7 movie 3D boxset with a special feature about Rogue One.

The next dime Disney gets from me will be when I buy a UHD BD from them (although I may make an exception if my granddaughter wants a Disney movie).

TPM was released in 3D, and there were plans to release all 6, but only TPM ever got released. I think conversions were completed on ATOC and ROTS (and they may have been screened at Celebration, but not released wide), but I don't think the 3D conversion of the OT was ever completed.

Looks like there's a decent amount of bonus content.

Guess JJ didn't have time to record a commentary track.
I would have loved one from Rey and Finn.

You never know, Abrams might have recorded a commentary that will be on the 3D release.

Regardless of which distributor ultimately puts them out, I'm pretty sure that someone from Lucasfilm designs, or at least must give approval for, the artwork on any video editions of its movies.

So no Maz deleted scene?

The X-wings and snow speeder deleted scenes seem interesting. Still not sure if will get digital or BD. If iTunes copy is only 720p and not 1080p, I might wait for the BD.

Perhaps they are considering another theatrical run in IMAX theaters or something of the sort.

Checked agian, iTunes now says 1080p. Great.

Does the iTunes copy have the deleted scenes included, though?

Given the inconsistency in Target's descriptions on this exclusive release I would give it time before I called it for sure either way. It's possible the exclusive version will also be part of the gift card offer in the coming weeks. Their history on this kind of stuff has been a mess as of late.

One thing I hate with all these different editions is not having consistent packaging. I'd like to get the Target edition for the bonus content but would prefer just a standard case.

I have the older book version of the saga set (1-6) so as long as this is the same height as that, I'll be fine with the Target version.

I just wonder if Eps 8 and 9, not to mention Rogue One will get similar packaging?
