Episode I - The Phantom Menace: The opening chapter in the fabled Star Wars saga: two Jedi knights, Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), must rescue the young Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman) and help her save her home planet, Naboo, which is under blockade by the ruthless trade federation. When the federation attacks, the Jedi spirit the queen away to relative safety on the desert planet of Tattooine. It is there that Qui-Gon discovers a boy, enslaved by evil gambler Watto, who has the potential to become the most powerful of the Jedi. His name: Anakin Skywalker.

Episode II - Attack Of The Clones: Anakin Skywalker disobeys the strictures of his Jedi training, embarking of a forbidden affair with Padme Amidala while his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi's investigation of assassination attempts against the Senator leads him to the distant planet of Kamino and into the middle of a separatist plot which brings the Galactic Republic to the very brink of civil war...

Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith: As the Clone Wars rages on, the rift between Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the Jedi Council widens. Young Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), is caught in the middle, his allegiances torn. Seduced by promises of power and the temptations of the dark side, he pledges himself to the evil Darth Sidious and the Sith Order, becoming Darth Vader. Together, the Sith Lords set in motion a plot of revenge against the Jedi, in an attempt to destroy them all. Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor), refusing to believe that Anakin is lost to the Sith, tries to turn his old Padawan learner back to the light side, leading to a climactic lightsaber battle that will shape the fate of the galaxy forever.

Episode IV - A New Hope: Luke Skywalker, a young farm boy from Tatooine, is thrust into the struggle of the rebel alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire.

Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back: Three years later, Imperial forces continue to pursue the rebels. After the rebellion's defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic. In an attempt to convert Luke to the Dark Side, Darth Vader lures young Skywalker into a trap in the Cloud City of Bespin...

Episode VI - Return Of The Jedi: In the epic conclusion of the saga, the Empire prepares to crush the rebellion with a more powerful Death Star while the rebel fleet mounts a massive attack on the space station.

 Stellar Star Wars Set

Having not seen any....of course I have and unless you've been living in the kessel spice mines, so have you.

The picture and sound are excellent, people seem divided, with some saying the first three aren't as good looking as the last three and vica verca. I think they all look pretty darn good, but don't expect anything you haven't seen before, as these are basically the same films you know and love/hate.

I even found I enjoyed The Phantom Menace, you can too if you block Jar Jar out when he's on screen. I wish the Lucas team had taken out his awful lines like "exqueeze me" and "meeza in big doo doo". Poo jokes were never what Star Wars was about, it was mainly adult themes in a sci-fi setting where we followed and routed for a brilliant band of brothers...and Sister.

I haven't watched all the extras, but the making of A New Hope is good fun and shows the quality of these films before remastering. It makes you glad they have been labour of love for Lucas and that he's kept them up to date and looking great, although some of the Phantom Menace CGI can look a bit ropey in places, but only for brief moments. Also, the New Hope making of doc was made before Episode 5 and 6 were written. It's great to listen to Harrison and Mark Hamil argue over who should get the princess. Mark even says Leia would be a complete doosh to not go for Luke. Oh if only they knew what Lucas had up his sleeve.

The Spoofs extra was a complete let down. It's just a bunch of clips from shows like saturday night live, some ads and a few other bits, none of which were all that funny. They really missed a trick on this one because there are some genuinely funny spoofs out there like 'Pink 5' and 'Chad Vader'.


Basically, the changes are all very very minor and don't change the films much at all. The net nerds will stomp their feet and claim their childhood has been soiled, but well balanced people who love Star Wars but have a life outside of it, will enjoy seeing Star Wars with a few fresh treats. Obi Wan's dragon call, which has been changed to an old man screaming was slated in many pre-release posts. It actually made me jump and was pretty eerie(I knew it was coming too), so I feel it was better than the sound it replaced. The Cantina has been changed, basically sped up so you have no clue who shoots first. Han does dodge but it really is so quick that unless you watched slowed down versions on youtube you won't really notice. I honsetly think all the changes i've seen so far are quite good.

I watched the original originals on VHS recently and they are poor beyond belief. They have a claustrophobic feel because all of the backgrounds are not fleshed out with CGI like in the newer releases. There's also goofs and gafs galore. I suggest most of the people complaining they want the Original Originals haven't watched them recently. 90% of what lucas has done makes the newer versions so much better. Nothing's perfect, so the 10% I don't love, like the song in Jabbas palace, I can ignore. It really is that easy.

Walt Disney first envisaged 'living' cinema in which a film is changed over time so that audiences can happily watch the same story with new twists over their life times. Lucas is the only person doing this and for me it makes watching a film i've seen a hundred times fun all over again.

Literally, for the 12+hour running time, there is a couple of minutes of changes you could even start quibbling over. The rest give new depth and flesh out the Star Wars universe so that it's a living breathing place.

Star Wars on blu ray is an absolute treat and half...

 The Originals Please.

The originals, Episodes IV - VI remastered without any additional CGI is all I want to see. But this is Lucas and we know he wants to bury them. His tinkering has ruined Star Wars for me. I was going to give 1 star but Empire bumped it up to 3.

 I want it...but then again I dont....

Firstly let me say that like many folks Im looking forward to this release (this will be the 6th time Ive bought the trilogy lol) BUT wheres the limited edition or special version? over the years iconic films have had some fantastic releases, the Alien head, the i robot head, Lord of the rings with statues, Bladerunner 5 disk tin, Back to the future Blu-ray tin, even recent films like the Watchmen have recieved some fantastic editions. Jurassic park is to be released with a T Rex statue in a limited Blu-ray set so my question to George Lucas would be, wheres the Darth Vader head? or the limited edition boxset with a Han in carbonite statue? if there was ever an iconic series of films that deserved some kind of limited edition set its Star Wars. they could get together with Gentle Giant for example and produce a set with a mini bust it cant be that hard surely? Of course I'll buy this set, as Im the kind of person Lucas loves, a gullible Star Wars fan who will buy the films time and time again, I just wish for once Lucas didnt treat me like a mug and released the set we all want, all the versions of the films together with bags of extras in some kind of limited set, and not just what looks like a bog standard digipack/digistack boxset

So what do we get??? The Special Editions of the original trilogy with even more additions, the worst being Vaders No! Noooooooo!! Why Lucas Why????
The deleted scenes are ok for the OT, but the Prequel deleted stuff is truly disappointing. Why didn't they include all the existing clips from the dvd's? Insted we get animated scenes in the roughest form.....

Picture quality as you'd expect is good from Blu ray, sound is good also, but it's just a shame that they had to mess with the classics even more.

This is the Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray, and I for one cannot wait. In response to Andy's review, let's talk more about the current release, rather than marking THIS ONE down for the future 3D release. Nobody is forcing you to buy it, so if you don't want to, then don't. Too often people judge things before it's even released, which is sad, really. Get over it. Bring on The Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray.
