    I saw the other day on Digibits the information on the Star Wars: Episode I DVD coming out this Oct. 16 (I think) I also read the transcript of the interview with George Lucas.
    I had heard that Lucas planned on releasing a Saga Box Set with more extras then the individually released DVD Episodes after he had all of them made. I read in the transcript a question & answer, which suggested that he had changed his mind about this and just planned on releasing the Episodes individually and that would be it.
    Now my question is what exactly are Lucas's plans as far as DVD releases? I personally wouldn't purchase any individual Episode DVD if he plans to release a Saga Box Set once he's finished with the remaining Episodes.
    So does anyone know where it stands? Thanks

    While I am no fan of rebuying the same title again and again, I think in this case it is worth it to buy now. If you are a real fan of Star Wars, you will have to wait 4-6 years or so to have all the movies on DVD, and then who knows how long to wait for this "saga set". I think you'll get plenty of enjoyment out of your DVDs that you may purchase right now.

    I really wish Lucas would change his mind on waiting another 4-5 years before releasing the original trilogy. While I don't like having to rebuy dvds, I would make an exception with the Star Wars films - bare-bones releases next year and then special editions whenever he gets around to it.
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
