The Blu-ray debut for the Star Wars trilogy and, er, the other Star Wars trilogy is set for the Autumn, with pre-orders open now. Little is known about what the discs will contain, by way of supplements and alternative versions, and many continue to hope that the original versions of the original three pictures will be included.
