Star Wars to be Released on Blu-ray

George Lucas has announced that "Star Wars" will be released on Blu-ray sometime next year.  Lucas announced the news at the Star Wars Celebration V that was held last week.

Lucas commented that "They'll be different kinds of additional material. I think you've seen enough behind the scenes [material] for a lifetime. There's some really good material that will be included in there, [including] more deleted scenes that you haven't seen yet."

Joining Lucas and John Stewart, who was moderating, was Mark Hamill, as they introduced one of the deleted scenes to the audience. According to IGN, the scene would have taken place after Darth Vader arrives on the second Death Star at the beginning of Return of the Jedi.  The crowd enjoyed the deleted scene and then were surprised by one more guest, Carrie Fisher. She joked to Lucas, saying, "Did you put the nude scenes back in? There was a huge me and Jabba porn scene. That's what got me into drugs."

The six movie set including "documentaries, vintage behind-the-scenes moments, interviews, retrospectives and never-before-seen footage from the Lucasfilm archives", will be released on Blu-ray in the Fall of 2011.
