Blu-ray: First Glimpses Of The Set In NY

Posted By Mike on June 29, 2011

A private Star Wars Media Day was held in New York last week as Lucasfilm presented a number of their upcoming releases to a variety of pop-culture and tech-related media outlets. The big splash of the event was a presentation of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray. Clips from both trilogies were previewed along with the packaging and bonus features. While the BD release was the main event, other upcoming releases -- such as the Season 3 box set of The Clone Wars, Kinect Star Wars, books, and other merchandise -- were also presented.

Big Picture Sound was one of the outlets in attendance and provides a nice write-up with a few pictures from the event. Excerpt below...

"Well, at a private event in New York City last week, our friends at Lucasfilm and Fox pulled back the curtain all too briefly for an exciting peek at the Blu-rays as part of the 2011 Star Wars Media Day. Two clips were played (one from a classic film, one from a prequel) to demonstrate the quality of the brand-new 1080p/DTS-HD Master Audio 6.1 remasters, on a Panasonic plasma and over a Panasonic HTiB system. It was really just enough to whet our appetites (as if we weren't drooling enough already), but I am now very optimistic: the clips that we saw of films both of the original trilogy flavor and the newer prequels were stunning. Release of the older films in particular on Blu-ray will be a real challenge for Fox, owing to the limits of cinematic technology of the era, but Episodes II and III should have the potential to truly amaze."

You can also visit Attention Deficit Delirium for another write-up. (Beware of a little adult language in this one.)

We'll make sure to update this post as other preview articles from the event go online.

Big thanks to our friend Justin for sending over the links!
