Star Wars Trilogy: Steelbooks
Tuesday 19th February 2013
After becoming one of the best-selling catalogue Blu-ray Discs of all time when launched in 2011, Lucasfilm and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment have announced that the beloved Star Wars Trilogy collections will be re-released as a limited edition steelbook on 8th April 2013.
The May 25, 1977 theatrical debut of Star Wars - on a scant 32 screens across America - was destined to change the face of cinema forever. An instant classic and an unparalleled box office success, the rousing "space opera" was equal parts fairy tale, western, 1930s serial and special effects extravaganza, with roots in mythologies from cultures around the world.
From the mind of visionary writer/director George Lucas, the epic space fantasy introduced the mystical Force into the cultural vocabulary, as well as iconic characters such as evil Darth Vader, idealistic Luke Skywalker, feisty Princess Leia, lovable scoundrel Han Solo and wise Obi-Wan Kenobi. Since its 1977 debut, Star Wars has continued to grow, its lush narrative expanding from modest beginnings into an epic, six-film Saga chronicling the fall and redemption of The Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.
The trilogy collections -- Prequel (Episodes I-III) and Original (Episodes IV-VI) -- now packaged in new, exclusive and collectible steelbook artwork are available for preorder.
