The ‘Star Wars’ Saga Will Be Available in Digital HD (Still Special Editions)

GameStop, Inc.

For a brief moment, there was hope. Collider had a scoop — Disney, Lucasfilm, and 20th Century Fox had agreed to a deal that would have all 6 Star Wars films available for digital purchase. But then the realization hit and the status quo was returned — it was all “Special Editions.” What does it matter anymore? These are the same “Special Editions” as before, so it’s not like any of this will quiet the dissatisfied Star Wars fans who simply want the original movies. But if you have young children who demand CGI-tomfoolery, you’re in luck.

The Star Wars films are available April 10th. Here’s the press release.

As anticipation builds for the December release of *Star Wars: The Force Awakens*, the first new film in the *Star Wars* Saga in a decade, The Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm Ltd., and 20th Century Fox today announced the upcoming release of The *Star Wars* Digital Movie Collection. For the first time ever, all six epic films in the Saga, from *The Phantom Menace* to *Return of the Jedi*, will be available on Digital HD throughout the galaxy – or at least here on Earth – globally beginning Friday, April 10.

“Since the debut of the first film nearly 40 years ago, *Star Wars* has become a worldwide phenomenon with legions of fans from every generation,” said Alan Bergman, President, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s only fitting that audiences enjoy this legendary Saga and its many fascinating behind-the-scenes stories on a wide variety of platforms, and we’re very excited to finally bring all six films to Digital HD for the first time.”

“We’re thrilled that fans will be able to enjoy the *Star Wars* Saga on their digital devices wherever they go,” commented Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “These films broke new ground in technology, design, sound, and visual effects, and we’ve created some very special bonus material which delves into the Saga’s rich history, including new and never-before-released conversations between legendary *Star Wars* artists – the masters who helped George bring his iconic universe to life.”

With *Star Wars*: Episodes I-VI available for purchase as a complete digital movie collection and individually, viewers will have the Rebel forces at their beck and call across their favorite devices anywhere – sunbathing at the beach, relaxing in their living room with friends, or waiting to board a flight to Endor (or elsewhere).

Enhancing the movie collection are a host of never-before-seen special features including *Star Wars: Discoveries from Inside *and insightful *Conversations* between key contributors from across this celebrated film franchise, plus a curated collection of classic *Star Wars* extras fromeach film. These are the droids you’re looking for:
