When news of any new Star Wars tinkering by George Lucas is released, many cry and plead with George to put the film to permanent rest, and move on to something new and original.
Well, obviously millions of others disagree, as news like this only helps support George’s desire to tinker with the franchise of films even further.
According to The Hollywood Reporter…
The Force has certainly been with Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment during the first week of the Star Wars: The Complete Saga’s release on Blu-ray. The nine-disc set took in $84 million globally since its launch on Sept. 16, selling 515,000 units in North America, and making the set the highest-selling and most pre-ordered title in Blu-ray history.
Making history, breaking records Star Wars is. Still, buy it, I will not; the 3D version of The Phantom Menace to contend with in February, we will; break 3D theatrical release record, it might. A live-action TV series in the works is.
