Star Wars Trilogy - Commentary participants revealed
Fox Home Entertainment have revealed some new details on the Region 1 DVD release of the Star Wars Trilogy due to arrive in separate widescreen and full screen editions on 21st September 2004 with a retail price of $69.98 each. The four-disc sets will present the original trilogy with digitally remastered THX Certified transfers and new English Dolby Digital 5.1 EX Surround mixes alongside the original English, Spanish and French Dolby Surround tracks.
For each film in the trilogy audio commentaries have been recorded with George Lucas (creator/director), Ben Burtt (sound designer), Dennis Muren (visual effects) and Carrie Fisher (actor) present for all three. Irvin Kershner (director) joins the group for The Empire Strikes Back, as does Lawrence Kasdan (writer) who stays on for Return of the Jedi.
Last but not least we have the bonus disc which includes the most comprehensive feature-length documentary ever produced on the Star Wars saga; and never-before-seen footage from the making of all three films, and much more.
Here once again is the cover art for both sets (front and back views)...
