George Lucas's sci-fi adventures will be released in three different box sets and are available to pre-order now. The 9-disc Star Wars: The Complete Saga includes all six films, Star Wars: Prequel Blu-ray Trilogy contains Episodes I-III on 3 discs and Star Wars: Original Blu-ray Trilogy has Episodes IV-VI across 3 discs.Presumably, these are the re-worked "Special Editions" of the original trilogy, and not the theatrical editions, which means that Greedo will shoot first in HD...
The Complete Saga features 30 hours of extensive extras, including deleted and alternate scenes and a look into the Star Wars archive.
Fox Home Entertainment president Mike Dunn said: "The Star Wars saga is the most anticipated Blu-ray collection since the launch of the high-def format.
"The epic franchise pioneered sound and visual presentation in theatres and is perfectly suited to do it again in the home, with a viewing experience only possible with Blu-ray."
Lucasfilm vice president of marketing, online, distribution Doug Yates added: "With all six episodes available for the first time in one collection, this is a great way for families and home audiences to experience the complete saga from start to finish."

• Been busy with some deadline-tight comics work this week; sorry for the lack of posts. Have a number of articles in draft form (including a couple more End of the World posts), and will polish them up and get them online as soon as I can squeeze in the time. Stay tuned!
