With Episode VII: The Force Awakens only mere months away from release, now is the perfect time to revisit the first six films of the Saga, or for some, view them for the very first time. Lucasfilm has just announced a new way to enjoy the Prequel and Original Trilogies with upcoming re-release that puts the films in some limited edition packaging. Beginning November 10th episodes I-VI will be available in a commemorative Blu-ray steelbooks.

Each film will be available separately in stunning new tin packaging featuring a character from each film prominently on the cover; Darth Maul for The Phantom Menace, Yoda for Attack Of The Clones, General Grievous for Revenge Of The Sith, Darth Vader for A New Hope, a Stormtrooper for The Empire Strikes Back and Emperor Palpatine for Return Of The Jedi  All the films will be available in a "complete saga" set on October 13th, which features three extra discs that include 40 hours of previously released bonus features, encased in a Darth Vader tin. Each film will also include it's original audio commentary with George Lucas and others, along with commentary from archival interviews with the cast & crew. They will all be available for pre-order this Friday, August 7th. You can check out all the steelbook artwork below:



Even though it seems rather redundant to release the films on Blu-ray yet again, this is actually the first time each movie has been available individually on Blu-ray. Previously all six films together and each each trilogy were released on Blu-ray back in 2011. Now and soon-to-be fans will have the option to buy each episode on at a time if they choose.
