Today will be a day long remembered: We can finally get our hands on the Star Wars Saga on Blu-Ray! In many ways, this feels as big as when we first got the saga on DVD back in 2004; a major change in how we view the film thanks to improved quality. The Star Wars films are never first to any new media - I speculate that its a marketing move to take advantage of higher household penetration of the new format and to maximize the ROI of the advertising around the launch.
I will be digging into the new disks over the next week. My first priority is the bonus features where I hope to find Rebel Troop Carrier footage and any new droid related shots.
