The Skywalker Saga will finally end this year with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. So what's the best way to celebrate? A new report suggests that all nine films will be getting a special 4K Blu-ray box set that will be released in 2020.
The news comes from The Digital Bits, which reveals a source has hinted at Disney and Lucasfilm are planning to release The Complete Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray/4K Ultra HD box sets by next year. The set is expected to include the original trilogy, the prequel trilogy, and the sequel trilogy, which could mean that it would be made available after the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Blu-ray is released.
This is certainly awesome news for people who have been hoping to see A New Hope or Revenge of the Sith in Ultra HD. Interestingly, the release of the possible Blu-ray set would coincide with the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. In addition to that, the report points out that Disney is fully capable of releasing the entire saga as soon as The Rise of Skywalker premieres. However, it is still unclear if the original cuts will get a release.
"We already know that the classic trilogy has been scanned from the original negatives (new 4K masters are done and ready), and the prequels will no doubt be upsampled and digitally restored. Whether Disney and Lucasfilm would consider including the original theatrical versions of those classic films is the $24,000 question," the report reads.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will premiere on December 20.
