collection’s extensive special features at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con
International – which marks Lucasfilm’s 35th anniversary as a
Comic-Con presence
. In 1976, the fledgling film company was looking for
innovative, grass-roots ways to promote its underdog release, a film no one
expected to succeed – a space opera known (at the time) only as Star
Wars
. One of the first film companies to reach out directly to core
audiences by way of fan conventions, Lucasfilm will return to the venue to
showcase the full evolution of the epic story with a special first look at
STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA ON BLU-RAY.

ABOUT STAR WARS

 

The May 25, 1977 theatrical debut of Star Wars – on
a scant 32 screens across America – was destined to change the face of cinema
forever. An instant classic and an unparalleled box office success, the rousing
“space opera” was equal parts fairy tale, western, 1930s serial and special
effects extravaganza, with roots in mythologies from cultures around the world.
From the mind of visionary writer/director George Lucas, the epic space fantasy
introduced the mystical Force into the cultural vocabulary, as well as iconic
characters such as evil Darth Vader, idealistic Luke Skywalker, feisty Princess
Leia, lovable scoundrel Han Solo and wise Obi-Wan Kenobi. Since its 1977 debut,
Star Wars has continued to grow, its lush narrative expanding from modest
beginnings into an epic, six-film Saga chronicling the fall and redemption of
The Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.
