Star Wars films are known to be proven record breakers, whether it be at the box office or in their various home video VHS, DVD and blu-ray. We’ll see if they continue that winning streak this weekend when Disney and Lucasfilm release all six Star Wars onto streaming media platforms for the first time.
The films will be available on a number of streaming outlets internationally including iTunes, Google Play Movies, VUDU and Xbox Video starting this Friday, April 10.
The films, presumably the “Special Edition” versions, will also come with a number of old and new special features including 6 Conversations featurettes (Doug Chiang Looks Back, Sounds in Space, The Star Wars That Almost Was, Creating a Universe, The Lost Interviews, and The Effects) and 6 Discoveries from Inside featurettes (Models & Miniatures, Costumes Revealed, Hologram & Bloopers, Weapons & The First Lightsaber, Matte Paintings Unveiled, and The Sounds of Ben Burtt). Given that the bonus material will vary from retailer to retailer, I can guarantee that there will be some completist fans who will be making multiple purchases.
