George Lucas confirms complete Star Wars saga coming to Blu-ray in Fall 2011

None other than George Lucas himself announced Saturday that all six films in the Star Wars saga will be released in a Blu-ray set in the fall of 2011.

“I wish I could say it was coming out this year,” said Lucas at a Q&A event that was part of Celebration V, a Star Wars fan convention.

The official Star Wars site notes that the set will include “extensive special features,” including a deleted scene from Return of the Jedi featuring Luke Skywalker assembling a new lightsaber from components found at Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Tatooine home.
