Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4K Blu-ray Box Set is Coming
Image
On March 31, all nine films of The Skywalker Saga will be released in a Best Buy exclusive box set. There will be 27 discs, with each film having one disc on 4K, one disc on Blu-Ray, and one disc on Blu-Ray for bonus features. Rogue One and Solo are NOT included in this set. It costs about $330 in Canadian Dollars so in the US, it should cost about $250.

There'll be a UK regular set as well that doesn't include the special book packaging and I think is just the Blu-Ray discs (so 18 discs). No word yet if the US will receive something similar that isn't a Best Buy exclusive.

And I presume this will feature just the special editions of the OT with even more new alterations and not include the pre-SE versions? :roll:

They will be the same as they are on Disney Plus.

Yes, JJ Abrams asked Disney to release the unaltered Original Trilogy but they basically said they can't do that. It's been heavily speculated that George Lucas still has the final say on their release or at least, has some sort of clause or stipulation in his deal with Disney that they can't release them.

While its not going to be the untouched original at all, it at least looks better than it has been looking. Its not as magenta tinted, white balance looks more correct. I have a feeling they can and will release the originals, after they get money for this version first. The movies will be on a bit of a hiatus so they will want to release something to excite fans, this would be it.

I hear George has been doing private screenings recently of the untouched originals, maybe a sign he's ready to sign off on releasing them?

I dont understand why they havent released the 3d versions yet in any capacity. Apparently they are done, that's the master they released on disney plus, just in 2D.

JJ said that Disney can't do anything about the UOT, so probably Lucas still holds the rights.
Disney stopped with 3D in North America, maybe in Europe.

I mean Lucas should just release the unaltered films officially already. They’re too important to film history not to see the light of day again. Plus, it’d make Lucasfilm and Disney huge buckets of money and people wouldn’t have to resort to just downloading fan edits.

He's not going to do that. He even refused to give them to the NFR.
