Star Wars is finally coming to digital download.
All six films – from Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi, from Jar Jar Binks to the Ewoks – will be available for Digital HD download for the first time starting April 10.
You’ll be able to purchase Star Wars: Episodes I-VI either as a collection or individually (for those who would rather not have the first three episodes). In addition to the films, there are never-before-seen special features including “Star Wars: Discoveries from Inside” and conversations between key contributors from the franchise, plus a curated collection of classic Star Wars extras from each film.
“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,” Alan Bergman, president, The Walt Disney Studios said in a news release. “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.”
“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,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said.
