Do any of you remember getting the Blu-Ray in 2012 of the Star Wars The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray? I apparently do! Disney and Lucasfilm have announced that they're bringing back the Blu-Ray steel books, but with Characters on the front of the steel books of your choice! Anyways, if buying and re-buying versions of Star Wars is your thing, and the existence of the first three films isn't something that upsets you ... oh, and you don't mind spending more money on the "remastered" versions of the original trilogy, then pay attention!

Disney is releasing the first six movies in the Star Wars saga in a limited edition Blu-ray set with fancy new steelbook cases. The catch, being "limited edition" and all, you're going to need to get in early. That means pre-ordering (pre-orders begin tomorrow) for a November 10 release. Each disc features "existing audio commentary with George Lucas and the film crew as well as audio commentary from archival interviews with the cast and crew." In addition to the six films, the set includes "three additional discs containing more than 40 hours of previously-released extensive special features."

Now, can we talk about the weirdest thing about this set? Okay. When thinking about characters you'd want to immortalize on the cover of a limited edition Blu-ray set, at what point did General Grievous make your long list ... then your short list ... and then onto the actual list that many people looked at and approved. No Luke Skywalker or Han Solo? Or if we're going to stick with Revenge of the Sith, how about Obi-Wan Kenobi? Or C-3PO? R2-D2? Chewbacca? Just about anyone would be preferable. And with the covers heavily weighted towards the Empire — only Yoda is here to rep the good guys — Grevious' inclusion is all the more confusing. But hey, it's your money. (And speaking of your money, they haven't announced a price for the limited edition set).

What movie are you hoping to get? All? 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? Tell me in the Comments!
