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.

 hmmm...not what I was expecting

Ok, so the films are great, they've been released in every format ever available...(give or take) you'd have thought that a release like this in the year 2008 would have been the best of the best...well...i'm sad to say...i'm slightly let down, now don't get me wrong, i love this trilogy (and only this trilogy...let's not talk about those other 3 in the series)
Firstly why the hell is this box set in a closed card box with slim amaray cases inside? It's quite annoying having a box which you have to open up to slide out the film you want, (i guess that's why it's only £17.99)

What i don't understand about this release is the lack of features, ok you get the usual commentary track, but what got the most was the lack of a 5.1 soundtrack for the original theatrical version, that was quite shocking when i looked at the back of the box today (when it arrived) i don't understand the idea of releasing a trilogy box set (millions of years later) and not giving the original versions the same dedication as the remastered versions, you can always have the 2.0 soundtrack with a 5.1 soundtrack...and on to the 5.1 thx sound quality...i haven't watched the films in full yet but had a quick run through earlier...i found that quite a lot of the sound was quite tinny, but then i never had any earlier version of the films on dvd so have no idea what they sounded like before, or if these are the same discs that were in those sets...

Still, for £17.99 it's not all bad, i would have loved to give this 5 stars but we all know what the films are, so i'm rating the actual box set.

 Still great

Despite the awful prequels these original three do still stand on their own as a fantastic Sci-fi trilogy.Who could forget Harrison Ford,Mark Hamill and Carrie Fishers' chemistry?
A New Hope 5/5
Empire Strikes Back 5/5
Return Of The Jedi 4/5
Great buy

 Again?. . .

Ive given this 5 stars because im as big of a star wars fan as anyone out there. Its arguably the best trilogy of films in the history of moving pictures.
But, how many times must these films be re-boxed and repackaged and sent back out?
Again???
I for one will not be buying this as its exactly the same films as before. In a different box.
Why would anyone buy this if they already have the films anyways in one of the several other guises these films have been released under??
Im sure the newer trilogy will get the same treatment.
"Oooh! You can buy them in an all new complete boxset!!"
So what? If you have all the films on dvd, why buy them again because they're all bunched together in the same box??

Come on george, throw us something new instead of the same stuff you've been handing out for the last 30 years.

 Stop milking it Mr Lucas ( next year Blu-Ray )!?

Yes the Star Wars are the best films of all time but, this is the 4th boxset on dvd of these films. Some fans will buy every single boxset that comes out of Star Wars and Mr Lucas knows this. Anyway if you have or are thinking about buying a Blu-Ray player wait untill next year hopefully we will have the Blu-Ray boxset which will be awesome!

 ALONG TIME AGO ON A CINEMA SCREEN FAR FAR AWAY

| | See all THEMOORE's reviews (184)

The original Star Wars saga is easily one of the best Sci-fi trilogies that cinema has ever produced and certainly some of George Lucas best work. Kicking the story off with that fantastic shot of a giant empirial cruiser attacking a smaller ship, Lucas gives us a great story with interwoven themes of love, family, power, destruction and sacrifice which has rarely been matched. Sure this trilogy may not have the big budget effects of the prequels or other modern day films but it certainly has a strong story which most recent films lack.

A NEW HOPE (1977) 5 Stars
The first Star Wars film (or fourth depending on which way you look at it) kicks the series off to a strong start. The acting is class, the effects are brilliant (especially for the time) and chemistry between Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Alec Guinness (an older Obi Wan Kenobi) is unforgettable. The sets are all impressive and we get out first glance of Darth Vader (brilliantly voiced by James Earl Jones) one of cinemas most threatening villains. A brilliant start to the original trilogy setting things up for what followed. A cinematic classic.

EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) 5 Stars
Who said sequels arent better than the original? Empire is easily the best film of the original trilogy as it builds on the great story started in the first film, yet this time there are bigger and better special effects, more great chemistry between the lead characters, the great cloud base set and battle and of course that one line that almost everyone knows. As with the original its hard to find fault with Empire, the scripts great, the sets are great, the effects are great and the acting is great, a brilliant sequel and film.

RETURN OF THE JEDI (1983) 4 Stars
The weakest of the original trilogy, Return Of The Jedi, sees the saga come full circle. Luke (Hamill) is now a Jedi Master, Leia (Fisher) is falling in love with Han Solo (Ford) and the rebels success is now starting to show as the empire crumbles. Sadly this final film feels like it is lacking something that the first two had. Thats not to say that the effects, acting, sets and script arent good because they are, theres just something missing from this thats all. The introduction of the Ewoks (the teddy bear things) didnt help either! That said the final is still a grand affair being better than all three prequels and it brings all the strands together (even from the prequels) to round the series off nicely.
