Star Wars Blu-ray: Early Access coming to the App Store tomorrow

Star Wars fans are in for a treat this Wednesday with the release of Star Wars Blu-ray: Early Access to the App Store. The app will be a companion for the upcoming Blu-ray collection, The Complete Saga. The app is being released early to coincide with the start of Comic-Con in San Diego.

The App, available for all iDevices including the iPad and iPhone will highlight a sampling of bonus materials featured in the Blu-ray collection, including never-before-seen content sourced from the Lucasfilm Archives such as matte paintings and concept art; prop, maquette and costume turnarounds; supplementary interviews with cast and crew; and more.

The app will be completely free and should be available on July 20. If you are planning on visiting Comic –Con, booth #3528 will have the app on display as well as a sneak peek of the Blu-ray collection. The Blu-ray is not scheduled for release until September 16.

Star Wars Blu-ray: Early Access coming to the App Store tomorrow


Sweet! Looking forward to playing around with this. Also enjoying the tie-in with Comic-Con. Nice job Lucasfilm.

I have no interest unless Lucas re-releases IV V & VI without all the added CGI garbage and "re-worked" scenes, AKA Greedo and Solo cantina scene.
As far as I II & III? Meesa like to pretend they never existed.

And you have no interest in buying another iPhone unless Apple re-releases the 1st gen without all the added App Store garbage and added speed and features.
Good luck adjusting to change.
