Star Wars Trilogy inc. Original Theatrical Versions (R2) in September - Artwork added
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of the Star Wars Trilogy including the original cuts of all three films as bonus features for 11th September 2006. Priced at £22.99 each these two-disc sets will include both the 2004 “Enhanced Trilogy Version” and the “Original Theatrical Versions” originally shown in the cinema on the films’ releases in 1977, 1980 and 1983 respectively.
Released due to "overwhelming demand from Star Wars fans", these sets not only mark the first time the “Original Theatrical Versions” have been available on DVD, but also the first time the films have been available separately. These editions will however only be available for a limited time, with the last order date (for retailers) set at 31st December 2006.
The original versions of the Star Wars Trilogy movies feature non-anamorphic widescreen transfers and Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, while the digitally restored films are presented in anamorphic widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. All three films, both in their original and restored versions, are closed-captioned and subtitled in English, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Danish.
Also included on each two-disc DVD set is commentary by George Lucas and key cast and crew members.
