Watching the films with a new level of super sharp clarity will be a treat, so it may be worth it for fans who already own the standard Blu-ray versions of the movies to upgrade. Unfortunately, the original trilogy movies coming to 4K Blu-ray — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi — will be the Special Edition versions, which made some much-needed visual improvements, but also added gaudy and distracting CGI elements.
The nine main entries in the Star Wars saga will be available in a limited edition box set that includes 27 discs. You’ll have to pick up the side stories — Rogue One and Solo — separately. It seems like March 31st is going to be an expensive day for die-hard Star Wars fans.
