News - Episode III DVD Release Date and Info

Posted by askanison on 2005.07.30 at 03:57
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith has been lauded by many since its release in May as the absolute best of the formerly mediocre prequel trilogy in the Star Wars saga. Personally, having been a huge fan of the movie (I saw it twice in theaters, despite the outrageous ticket prices and ridiculously large buckets of popcorn), I was excited to hear that Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has released details on the RotS DVD release.

First off the DVD is set to be released on October 31st, 2005, to coincide with the release of the likewise highly-anticipated Star Wars Battlefront II game for Playstation 2, XBox, PC, and, intriguingly, the PSP. Aside from that, the DVD will include a two-level playable demo of the game for XBox. Naturally, the DVD will include a mountain of extras in signature Lucas style.

Although this is purely speculation based on rumor, I wouldn't be surprised if Lucasfilm puts out a couple of new boxed sets shortly after the arrival of Episode III; we should see a six-episode mega pack and Episodes I-III bundled for your digital enjoyment. This should be a good time for Star Wars fans and DVD collectors alike.

More info about the Episode III DVD can be found at DVD Lard.
