George Lucas Confirms Star Wars Blu-ray Release Date in 2011

Today at Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando, Florida, George Lucas confirmed during a q/a session that all six Star Wars live-action feature films are coming to Blu-ray Disc in 2011. This confirmation comes after Star Wars ambassador Steve Sansweet offered a similar confirmation about Star Wars on Blu-ray earlier this year.

The box set, expected to arrive in the fourth quarter of next year, will include never-before-seen deleted scenes. One of those scenes is from Return of the Jedi and was decribed by Lucas, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill on-stage. I don’t have the description yet but it sounds like it might take place towards the end of Jedi when Luke reveals to Leia who she really is.

More on the now definitively confirmed Star Wars Blu-ray Set as it develops.
