It has taken months of negotiations, but finally Disney Studios, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox have come to an agreement for the Digital HD release of the first six films in the “Star Wars” series. All six epic films in the Star Wars saga so far will be available in the format starting this Friday (April 10th).
In a joint statement, Walt Disney Studios president Alan Bergman says: “It’s only fitting that audiences enjoy this legendary saga and its many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories on a wide variety of platforms, and we’re very excited to finally bring all six films to Digital HD for the first time.”
The films will be available on VOD services like Amazon, Google Play, iTunes as well as other major digital distributors as both a complete collection, or for individual purchase. Sadly, no theatrical versions of the original trilogy are expected – only the Special Edition versions.
Bonus material will be packaged around the films, including never-before-released conversations between legendary Star Wars artists, deleted scenes and featurettes.
