    I'd say now nobody can complain since they say that a Blu-ray is coming but since it's Star Wars, I'm sure there will be lots of "I hate you Luca$!!!!!!". [​IMG]

    Perhaps you should re-read the original post.

    I think what he's referring to is that SW :TCW vol.1 is only being released on DVD only in march. We won't see vol.1 on BD until the entire set of season one is released later this year. So if you're wanting this on blu, you have to wait until fall anyway.

    Hmmm...I thought the link made it perfectly clear, but this is what I'm talking about: I've bolded it in the 1st post to head off confusion.

    Yes I am buying the full season set at the end of the year.

    I am just wondering why LFL are releasing only 4 episodes this time and not more ?

    Any ideas ?

    Just to be clear, they're not releasing 4 eps on Blu-ray, but instead waiting to release the full season. The DVD is 4 eps because that's a feature-length disc. IIRC, the earlier (hand-drawn) "Clone Wars" series did the same thing.

    The hand-drawn series was released in two collections, each collecting a season. I was hoping this release would speed the Tartokovsky animated series BD release, because I am interested in purchasing that. I'll assume no news on that is bad news.

    That news would come from Fox, anyhoo, unless the rights to the series, having originally been produced for Cartoon Network, would in some way revert to WB after a certain period of time.

    Glad to see the announcement that the season set is coming. Just like with Peter Jackson's extended LOTR editions, fans can buy now or wait for the larger set. Nice to be kept officially informed of what's coming.

    Additionally, a 4 episode SD DVD hits a nice price-point for parents looking to pick their child up a gift. The time frame for this 4 episode disc looks to be positioned to take advantage of Easter gift giving.

    Knowing WB's history of only Dolby Digital audio tracks on their Blu-rays, it is safe to assume that the set will be in Dolby Digital 5.1. I would like to be nicely surprised with Dolby TrueHD audio, however.

    Is there any confirmation on the Blu-ray audio?

    The audio info in the press release is says: "Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season One is presented in widescreen with English, Spanish and French 5.1 DTS audio..."

    That's good, now let's hope the AR is correct. I suspect we'll get the 1.78, instead of the correct 2.35. If so I won't be picking it up.
