Product Description

Star Wars: The Original Trilogy (Episodes IV-VI) [Blu-ray] (Bilingual)

Amazon.ca

This 2005 three-disc edition of George Lucas's Star Wars Trilogy is basically the same set as the 2004 edition minus the bonus fourth disc. That means you get the three original films--A New Hope (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983)--in their brilliant-looking and -sounding DVD glory. That means you also get both the changes that were made for the 1997 special-edition versions as well as the revisions that were made for the films' DVD debut, including Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) being added to a scene in Jedi, Ian McDiarmid (the Emperor) replacing Clive Revill with slightly revised lines in Empire, and Temuera Morrison rerecording Boba Fett's minimal dialogue, plus some other small details.

The discs don't qualify as bare-bones because they do include the commentary tracks recorded by Lucas, Ben Burtt (sound design), Dennis Muren (visual effects), and Carrie Fisher (Leia), plus Irvin Kershner added for The Empire Strikes Back. But what you lose is the fourth disc's 150-minute documentary Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy, the three substantial featurettes ("The Characters of Star Wars," "The Birth of the Lightsaber," and "The Force Is with Them: The Legacy of Star Wars"), the Xbox sampler, the no-longer-exciting Episode III preview, and other odds and ends. Star Wars aficionados will certainly stick with the four-disc set, but casual fans might be satisfied with this lower-priced version. --David Horiuchi --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this for someone who had never seen a star wars movie. (she's 54) It was great to be able to watch the whole trilogy all at once. While we didn't watch all the extra stuff... it did come with a lot of extra stuff. There were two extra CD's with all kinds of out takes, behind the scenes and making of stuff to watch also. a good package with hours of entertainment and the complete star wars story.

Star Wars IV-VI classics are as enjoyable as always. We watched the three over a period of a month, and it was still a lot of fun. One problem with this collection is that it has the "digital graphic upgrades" - these were added in the video re-releases in the 80s/90s. These "upgrades" mainly include digital creatures that add zero value to the story or plot... they merely make you take notice as to how distracting and out of place they are... and how crude the graphics were (otherwise 5 stars).
Episode IV is still by far the tightest movie with the best script and execution!

I am a big Star Wars fan, and this is not my first viewing of the Star Wars Trilogy. So, for anyone out there who has never experienced Star Wars, you will probably figure it out - that because I'm purchasing the same movies for the second time, that I really recommend them.

This Blue Ray+ DVD release contains 6 discs....3 Blue Ray & 3 DVD discs

Each blue ray is presented in 2:35:1 Aspect ratio with black bars on top and bottom. It is not presented in 1080p, but instead AVC 31mps for The Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of The Jedi, and AVC 33mps for A New Hope.

The Audio for the Blue Ray discs is presented in 6.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, English 5.1 Descriptive Audio, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, French DTS 5.1, & Portuguese 5.1 Dolby Digital. Subtitles are in English SDH, Spanish, French, And Portuguese. The DVD versions are presented in their original DVD release formats. I guess the only reason companies release Blue Ray & DVD combos together is in case Blue Ray goes out of style and disappears.

The only Extras you will get on this set are Audio Commentaries with George Lucas, Cast & Crew taken from archival interviews. Their are no featurette's or behind the scenes or anything like that......just audio commentaries.

By T. Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER on Sept. 2 2007
Format: DVD
Why did George Lucas made those "special editions" of the original Star Wars trilogy?The films were good as they were,but Lucas first made changes to them with the "special editions" back in 1997 on the VHS boxed saying it was his ultimate version of the first trilogy but he couldn`t stop as he once again made changes to the movies for the 2004 DVD boxed set.Then this 2005 DVD set comes,its the same as what was released in the 2004 boxed set,without the bonus discs and an alternate box,for a cheaper price.

You don`t mess with the past,and Mr.Lucas doesn`t seem to know that!Those changes made,some can be minor others are more important weren`t necessary and the movies on this DVD set should have been released as they were in theaters back in 1977,1980 and 1983 in order to please fans.

Even with all the changes those first three movies "IV:A New Hope","V:The Empire Strikes Back" and "VI:Return Of The Jedi" are still enjoyable but if you want the originals,you came to the wrong place.

OVERRAL:The movies themselves are all 5 stars and greats films but this DVD boxed set is just another special edition,if you don`t mind the changes made to the movies this seems like a pretty good buy as this is the most unexpensive DVD set of the original trilogy,for more you can buy the other set wich is basicly same as this but with the bonus discs with special features.Or another option is buying the 2006 separate versions of the movies in a two discs set wich contains the original versions without any changes made and the special editions.

All I had until now were worn vhs tapes in 4:3 aspect ratio, now I have the full picture in bright colors! However, since the original source was not digital, the image is not as sharp as in the I-II-III bluray package. You will notice it at first sight. But it is still a nice buy, if you want to watch these movies for the years to come! And the sound is great.

As of this writing, october 20th 2010, the 'Product Description' on Amazon.CA for this product is misleading because it
describes another version, so just ignore it.

This review is for the Star Wars Trilogy box set ( ASIN: B001EX9YJ0 published in Canada) with Vader's mask in the background,
X-wing/Ties on one side,
Millenium falcon/Ties on the other side,
Luke's shadow and Vader's shadow fighting in the center.

The set contains 6 discs with 2 versions for each episode( IV, V and VI ).
I must point out that these are the widescreen limited editions( 19XX & 2004 ) that you can also buy individually.
( for ref, ASINs: B000FOPZUG B000FOPZV0 B000FOPZVK )

3 discs are the movies digitally remastered with added footage and special effects,
Widescreen enhanced for 16:9 television, 2.35:1 ratio.
Sound options: English dolby 5.1, English dolby 2.0, French dolby 2.0, Spanish dolby 2.0
Subtitles options: English
Commentary in english by George Lucas, Ben Burtt, Dennis Muren and Carrie Fisher.

The 3 others are the original theatrical releases in all their unmodified glory.
Don't expect magical post filtering to remove the NORMAL graininess of the film,
which was shot with good old analog cameras.
Those are presented in 4:3 letterbox,
or in other terms 2.35:1 film with black bars above and under to give it a 4:3 ratio.
Again to be clear, you get the entire frame, as it was shown in theatres.
Sound options: English dolby 2.0, French dolby 2.0, Spanish dolby 2.0
Subtitles options: English
Another nice surprise, the menu backgrounds for those 3 DVDs are
the original hand drawn movie posters. How sweet is that!
