Highly Anticipated Complete Star Wars™ Saga Readied for High Definition Blu-ray Debut

Today at Star Wars Celebration V, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced that the complete Star Wars Saga will come to Blu-ray Disc with a worldwide release in Fall 2011. The Star Wars Blu-ray Box Set will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible picture and audio presentation, along with extensive special features – including documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives.

“Blu-ray is the absolute best way to experience Star Wars at home – in pristine high definition,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “The films have never looked or sounded better.”

Below is a bootleg video of one of the deleted scenes that will appear on the Blu-ray. It is a missing scene from “Return of the Jedi” where Luke is building his lightsaber in a cave on Tattooine.
