'Star Wars' Coming to Blu-ray in 2011, Deleted 'Jedi' Scene Unveiled

star wars blu-rayIn celebration of 'A New Hope,' whose 35th birthday is next year, the always anniversary-conscious George Lucas will unveil all six of his beloved 'Star Wars' films on Blu-ray. Lucas, who personally announced the 2011 release plans at the recent Celebration V event, promised that the new editions would be formatted with the "highest picture and audio quality," along with extended special features. The space opera auteur also unveiled a deleted scene from 'Return of the Jedi,' which will be included in the Blu-ray set. Unfortunately as Engadget points out, it's still unclear when the films will be released, or how much they'll cost. It is clear, however, that only the special editions of the films will be restored [Ed. Note: Ugh, so Greedo shoots first?] , since remastering the original versions would be too costly -- even, apparently, by Lucas's Daddy Warbucks-ian standards. [From: Engadget]
