    (Not sure if I'm posting this in the right section?)


    I just received my copy of the Official soundtrack for "Revenge of the Sith", it comes with a bonus DVD disc.

    The disc contains a chapter by chapter story "run down" with music and images from all 6 trailers and movies themselves!

    In between chapters, the story is narated by "Ian McDiamid" himself. Though you have the choice to watch without the narated chapter breaks.

    Sound is available in "Dolby Digital 5.1" and "PCM Stereo". Their are also previews of upcoming "Star Wars" video games.

    I've only had a brief look at this disc but I find it awesome!

    I plan to watch it entirely later today, I'll post more then if someone hasn't already done so...

    Perhaps I read this wrong, but...

    I have the very rare THX demo DVD
    that has the infamous LucasFilm
    montage on it.

    I thought I read a review of this disc
    on another site that stated this montage
    was included on this DVD.

    Can someone clarify?

    If that is true...I am buying multiple SDTK copies for longevity sake.

    I don't want to mislead anyone on this.

    Read the DVD FILE Review and tell me what you think.

    I took it to mean that this new DVD does all the things he wanted done in the demo, so he doesn't need the old one any more. In other words, it doesn't replicate the old material, but serves as a new, better demo.

    Just read the dvdfile review. The reviewer makes it sound like the THX Demo disc could be replaced by this new disc. Though not exactly the same he does say it is demo material. I might have to check it out myself.

    No confusion on my part. He just said that they're edited in similar ways and can both be used as demo material. But the WOW demo is not included on the soundtrack DVD. There'd be no reason for that considering there's no prequel footage on it.

    If you get it at Wal-Mart, you get a bonus downloadable track. If the price is competitive, I'll get it there. Otherwise, that BB price sounds good.

    The WOW! montage is not on the new soundtrack DVD. Instead, it's like 16 different mini versions of WOW! which is something I'm really excited about. [​IMG]

    Supposedly Target's advertising the same thing now, with the $11.99 price point. iTunes is also boasting an "exclusive bonus track" as well. I have a feeling it's all probably the same track, whatever it may be. Here's hoping it's something like 'Yoda Kills a Whole Lotta Stuff.'

    You can see a preview of one of the 16 videos on the DVD right now at starwars.com. It's the music video for A Hero Falls

    The entire disc lasts somewhere between 1 hr. to 1 hr. 15 min. If I remember corectly...

    "Ian McDiarmid" narates on location from "Abbey Road" studio in London.

    The PQ is excellent on my Toshiba 34HFX84 Widescreen HDTV.

    I think it's awesome! Especially for the price... I would have bought it for the soundtrack alone, I had no idea that I would be getting this as well.

    Here's a question for you Sebastien...is the stereo in the rear channels of the 'New Hope' cues correct this time? [​IMG]

    In another tread on this, I saw a vague reference to a possible collectible edition of this a la LOTR. Has anyone heard anything definite?

    I have been adamantly avoiding all trailers and reading anything about Episode 3 online because I want to go into the theater knowing NOTHING about it. With that in mind, how revealing is this disc of the new movie? I definitely want this, but not if it reveals part of the story or scenes from the upcoming movie. Does anyone know how much is in there?

    It has the music video for the new film which has almost all the scenes from the release trailer and then some.

    If you're trying to stay COMPLETELY away from everything, i'd buy it after the movie comes out.

    Reported on theforce.net April 16, there's supposedly going to be an Amaray-style keepcase version of the soundtrack released. Anyone know who's going to carry this version?
