George Lucas names Star Wars Blu-ray release date

A long, long time to wait

All six Star Wars movies will be released on Blu-ray, George Lucas has confirmed, but not until October... 2011.

The release will bundle all six films into a single box set, the Skywalker Supremo said this weekend at a gathering of fanboys in Florida.

Why wait? Lucas doesn't appear to have said, but the wait gives him plenty of time to make the tweaks and adjustments he always seems to make when any of the movies have been re-released on tape and disc.

Here, for example, are the many changes made to just one of the movies, the original Star Wars, later re-branded A New Hope.

Lucas did say that the archives will be raided for even more scenes deleted from the original three movies. ®
