    Since the other thread about the upcoming Star Wars reviews got shot down...
    In today's Digital Bits column Bill Hunt teases us with the bit about knowing when the next Star Wars film hits DVD.
    I can't wait until tomorrow to find out.

    Amen.
    I'm really curious to find how the sound of the disc compares to the LD.

    Any news other than, "in the foreseeable future" is great news. Even just a year! I can't wait for Episode 1.

    Ah, I was just going to post about this!!! This is OBVIOUSLY not Episode I, since we already know when it's coming out. I'm PRAYING that he's referring to Episode IV, coming out next year in time for its 25th anniversary, as I have predicted. But I bet it's just an estimate for how long after it's out of theaters Episode II's DVD will take to come out [​IMG]. Either way, it's straight from Lucas' mouth, so The Digital Bits is probably right [​IMG].

    fantasy "And the best news about the new release of IV is that Lucas is including both the original theatrical release and the recent special edition." /fantasy

    Sorry if you saw that before I edited it! The marks around the words fantasy were read as tags, so those words didn't show up! Not trying to start anything.

    If this is some sort of cruel joke, and the “next” Star Wars film is Episode One, I’m going to be pissed!
    With my luck it will be a double feature of the “Star Wars Christmas Special”, and the “Ewoks battle for Endor”.
    What are the odds of a surprise announcement along the lines of Star Wars: A New Hope, for a release to DVD in 2002! I guess we will have to check back tomorrow!
    ...I'm still waiting for Lucas's "other" masterpiece! Howard the Duck! [​IMG]

    You know, Greg, for about a nanosecond I thought that was serious.

    When that came up, I was horrified. "Oh, no! I'm going to spread false information!" Heh. Wouldn't you know that would be the exact moment the server decided to go into dog slow mode.

    I pray that the next DVD will come out next year. Releasing EpIV on DVD would be a great way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first Star Wars film. I guess I will have to set my alarm for 2:01 AM to find out... [​IMG]

    I think the next DVD will be Episode I the DTS version. C'mon it is Luca$ we are talking about. He is going to rape the DVD market as much as he can. Just like he did with the LD and VHS market. I really doubt episode 4 will be out anytime soon and be the non CGI version. Although that would be cool if it is Episode 4 non CGI as the next release. I am just very skeptical on it. As for Episode II if it is anything like Episode I, then they should just release it stright to video and then pay you to sit through more Jar Jar. [​IMG]

    Joshua,
    I don't think it would be a DTS version of TPM. If he wnated to rape as you put it one more time he would wait until everybody already bought the DD version then he would announce DTS.
    Bill,
    I hope your webserver is ready. I smell a masssive bandwith meltdown.

    I'm guessing it will be something along the lines of "Episode IV in 2002", which is nothing that hasn't been rumored for a while.
    I think it will pretty mich be a "non-event" if it is "Episode IV in 2002". Why? Because why the hell would they make them wait until September 11 to be able to post the "news"? It can't be that spectacular if LFL is letting the news out this early.
    I just hope they got "news" on Indiana Jones too, but I doubt it.
    Regards,
    Dan

    It will be Episode I in DTS with the special "SW Memorial" documentary only available on the DD disc. [​IMG]

    Haha I live in Hawaii! I'm convinced that its about the release of Ep4 on its 25th birthday. I only say this because it just makes sense. But then again Lucas has done alot of things that don't make sense. Oh well I'll know at 9 o'clock [​IMG]

    quote: And the good news is that we know when the next Star Wars film is coming out on DVD. [/quote]
    Seems pretty clear to me that the good news is going to be the release date for Episode II DVD. To me, "next film", indicates just that, the next film, not a DTS Episode I release, or "Ewoks Adventure". And that is good news, because whether the film is good or not, we will all have less to whine about if we know the release date this time before the film is even released in theaters. If it was the orginal trilogy, I think he would have been much more excited in his teaser, something along the lines of "the incredible news we've been all waiting to hear," or the like. That said, I hope I'm wrong and it's concerning the original trilogy. [​IMG]
