TOP 500 REVIEWERon 11 May 2016
This “Star Wars” box set consists of 9 Blu-ray discs, including the six feature films of the original and prequel trilogies, as well as lots of bonus material and special features. As such, you get a lot for a reasonable price (at the time of reviewing, approx. £50). These are the digitally remastered, special edition versions of the movies. And they do contain alterations and revisions – done at George Lucas’ insistence – which not everyone wants to see. But often these changes to the theatrical editions of yesteryear are minor, and - speaking as someone who was there, as a child in the 1970's and 1980's - they do not detract from the overall quality of these films. Given what’s contained in this set, I fully recommend it.

You get the following films:

‘Star Wars’ (1977; subsequently subtitled ‘Episode IV: A New Hope’) – 121 minutes
‘The Empire Strikes Back’ (1980) – 124 minutes
‘Return of the Jedi’ (1983) – 131 minutes
‘The Phantom Menace’ (1999) – 151 minutes
‘Attack of the Clones’ (2002) – 142 minutes
‘Revenge of the Sith’ (2005) – 140 minutes

And some of the extra features – consisting of some 40 hours of bonus material – include: many deleted, extended and alternate scenes; several new documentaries; as well as numerous ‘Star Wars’ spoofs. Some of this is will be of interest only to enthusiasts, but most of it is entertaining, informative and - at times - very humorous.

‘Star Wars’ is an epic sci-fi fantasy adventure franchise, full of wondrous characters and outlandish environments, involving a classic tale of good vs evil, of tragedy and loss and redemption. It has amazing original motion picture scores (the music is excellent throughout). It’s full of space battles, light-sabre duels, amazing special effects, and it provides us with two of the most iconic villainous characters of all time: Darth Vader and the Emperor.

If you’re totally new to this saga, or have as yet only watched the recent “The Force Awakens” film, then I recommend that you buy this box set asap – and treat yourself to what could be the greatest movie experience you’ll ever have. On the other hand, if you’ve seen these films before, but don’t yet own them on Blu-ray, then I can tell you that the HD picture quality is superb and the 5.1 surround sound audio is fantastic … These are well worth buying (unless you detest all sci-fi and fantasy movies - in which case, avoid).

Of course, some of these films are better than others. The original trilogy is in a league of its own … the prequel trilogy is, for the most part, good fun – although at times it is infuriating, while at other times it’s very good.

It’s unfortunate that the original theatrical releases – without all the alterations – are not included here. Just as it’s unfortunate that the 3D version of ‘The Phantom Menace’ is omitted. But what you do get is well worth the price being paid.

Works fine for me- I didn't find any of the sound issues reported by other buyers (at least during Ep1 & 2 which are all I've seen from this version so far). The pictures are crisp and of blu-ray quality and the set is loaded with all the extra features you could ever want and a bunch you probably wouldn't want. Outside of it not having particularly flashy packaging, it's the ultimate collection of episodes 1-6.

What can I say about this box set, other than its Star Wars episode 1 through 6, and its in Blue Ray. Excellent upgrade in episodes 4 to 6.

It's Star Wars. Would have liked the originals before all the Lucas changes, but I guess they will never release them

What can you say, the amazing originals plus the prequels that are good enough, and all the extras to savour too.
May the force be with you!
