If the upcoming Star Wars Blu-ray set included the original theatrical editions of the original trilogy, I would care what special features are on the Blu-ray. Unfortunately, we’re being stuck with the special editions, complete with Han shooting first, awful Jabba the Hutt special effect, and cringeworthy musical number in Jabba’s palace. For some people, these added flaws won’t detract from the promise of seeing the beloved trilogy in high-definition.
Lucasfilm has now announced the full list of special features that will be included in the 9-disc set. While you can buy the original trilogy separate from the prequel trilogy, you’ll have to buy all six films in the “Complete Saga” box-set to get the three additional discs of bonus material. So if you want the sweet new special features, you’ll have to suffer the indignity of buying the prequels. Hit the jump for the list of special features and decide if it’s worth it. Star Wars: The Complete Saga hits stores on September 16th for an SRP of $139.99. If you’re interested, you can pre-order Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray via this link to Amazon. In case you only want to partake in either the Original Blu-ray Trilogy or the Prequel Blu-ray Trilogy, you can click here or here respectively.
