If there’s one man known for milking a franchise for all it’s worth, it’s George Lucas. Granted, fans of Star Wars (such as myself) can’t seem to get enough of the stuff, which is why he gets away with it. So what is the man up to this time? Well it appears that he is hard at work on the Blu-ray release of all six movies. That’s right, he’s finally bringing them into HD.
The bad news is that we’ve got another year to wait before they arrive in the new format. Apparently there are a lot of things for Lucas to work on before he deems them ready for release. While he cited deleted scenes (such as Luke Skywalker building his new lightsaber and stashing it in R2-D2 at the beginning of Return of the Jedi) and extras as the cause for the delay, I think we all know what’s really holding them up. The man is still torn over who shot first. Does he go back to making Han the only shooter, thus caving to the fans demands and showing that he has no backbone? Or does he stick to his guns and leave in the ambiguous dual-firing scene that will anger his fans? It’s going to take another year for him to figure it out.
