The Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray Disc is destined to be one of the all-time best selling titles on the format. Though we know it’s coming in September, there has been no indication made by LucasFilm or distributor Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment as to *when* in September it can be expected.
Early this morning online retailer Amazon.com sent out an email to those who pre-order the Star Wars Saga, Prequel Trilogy or Original Trilogy on Blu-ray saying that it is now eligible for release date delivery and that it will arrive on September 27. A quick peek at a calendar confirms that September 27 does, in fact, fall on a Tuesday when the majority of Blu-ray titles are released.
Amazon would not make up such a specific release date and then notify pre-order holders to expect the item on that date. This is probably the real deal, but it could be several months before LucasFilm and Fox expand their announcement with the date confirmation and a complete list of bonus features.
