Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Blu-ray & Ultra HD Blu-ray; 3/31/20)

Best Buy Canada has a listing for a 27 disc Skywalker Saga set ó all 9 mainline movies (so no Solo or Rogue One) on UHD/Blu-ray. Release date is specified as 3/31. Price (presumably MSRP) is $329 CAD, which is about $250 USD.

Yep, as expected. I'll drop some change for a set sometime in the future, but not really a Day 1 purchase for me.

re: Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Blu-ray & Ultra HD Blu-ray; 3/31/20)

Anyone want to speculate on the contents of those 27 discs? I assume for sure we are getting the following:

-9 UHD movies
-9 Blu-ray movies
-3 sequel trilogy bonus discs

That leaves 6 discs. There are the 3 bonus discs from the original FOX set, but would Disney just recycle those 3 discs? Doesn't seem like their m.o., but I also can't imagine them dedicating a separate bonus disc for each movie. I suppose what I'm getting at is is it possible that 3 of those discs contain you know what? I not going to hold my breath, but I've always been in the camp of the OOT will happen eventually. The fact that it's a best buy exclusive gives me pause, but I guess we'll see.

*Edit* Never mind. Just saw last week JJ said in an interview that he was told releasing the originals was not really possible for reasons that he didn't totally understand. I still think it will happen some day, but probably not in March.

I’ve just acquired the Harmy versions, so I’m sure the OOT will be out sooner than later.

Nice looking set. I could be swayed depending on the contents and price.

Unfortunately. That disc will likely sit in place forever if I decide to get this. The thing that will make me not want this more is the likely lack of the unaltered Original Trilogy. Being as I donít own any of the Fox era Star Wars films I might just break down anyways. Might get a copy of the Harmy editions as well.

Bonus discs for each one of the films. There's plenty of content out there to justify that.

The content is out there for sure, but how long has it been since Disney went all out to assemble legacy features in this manner? Not saying it won't happen. Just feels unlikely to me. I wonder if 3D versions may account for some of the extra discs.

This particular collection looks to be a Best Buy exclusive. So, $50 at Best Buy.

Beautiful looking set, but I'm not buying any set unless I don't have to buy 7,8,9 and it has the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy.

Totally off topic, but I still feel so burned buying those 4k steelbooks at normal prices. With Disney+ available in my house, I think I can resist this set. It's not like they're not going to rerelease this over and over.

So you only want the PT in 4k? Well that's...something.

Cool looking set. But, I already own the FOX "Complete Saga" BD box set and also have The Force Awakens on BD and The Last Jedi on 4K.

Plus, the movies are on Disney + streaming in 4K with the exception of The Last Jedi, which comes out December 26th.

I don't think I really "need" this. I have so much Star Wars content already to last me months or even years.

and I still have the old FOX special edition DVDs as well with all the long documentaries.

I don't know if I want to shell out $150 to 200 for this. I'm a fan, but not a hardcore fan where I need everything Star Wars.

Until there is a listing for "Star Wars: The Complete Maclunkey Collection" I will assume it is fake.

Looks nice but I'm not in a hurry to upgrade by Blurays. It would take the original OT versions to do that, and as we've seen even JJ couldn't get Disney to budge on making those.

I feel like they wonít bother with 3D. Isnít The Force Awakens the only Star Wars film with a 3D disc? I know at least The Phantom Menace re-released theatrically in 3D. I canít remember if the other prequels were being prepped and never released or if the conversions never happened after The Phantom Menace didnít do well enough.

Rogue One had a 3D blu-ray, too.

That was in the waning days of at home 3D.

Last Jedi also had a 3d release. Just not in the US.

Well, 3D versions of the prequels do exist; it would be nice if they got released, but I doubt Disney will include them. At least not in a US set.
