While I believe this set was released in 2015, none of the 2011 Blu-Ray edits made it here. Yoda in The Phantom Menace remains a puppet, and Vader never yells "Nooo!" in Return of the Jedi. Personally, I was relieved.
The originals (IV, V, and VI) are in their 2004 remastered versions, but my favorite thing about this set is that, on the bonus discs, you get the original theatrical releases of the films. Now, I remember hearing a lot of complaints about the standalone DVD releases (not this one) with this feature saying that it was just the laserdisc version with letterbox format. I don't know if that is what is in this box set, but it looks like standard widescreen to me. No part of the screen seems to be cut off, and the video and sound quality are about as good as VHS if not a little better. No major flaws exist other than a slightly shaky screen that you will barely even notice. The contrast is fine. Everything looks good. The sound is a little muffled compared to the remastered versions, but that's a petty complaint as well.
I definitely think this set is definitely worth getting. It's great to own all of these wonderful movies and to see the original versions before all of the edits came in.
If you're thinking about it, I would say just get it.
P.S. Sorry, I'm not the best reviewer, photographer, or disc sorter. Lol. Just want to help. Hope this helps some of you make a decision. You won't regret it.
The point of my review is that if you are a "Star Wars" fan, this is the DVD set you want. Why? (A) You get all 6 films in one package. (A) "The Phantom Menace" (B) "Attack of the Clones" (C) "Revenge of the Sith" (D) "A New Hope" (E) "The Empire Strikes Back" (F) "Return of the Jedi" ALSO, AND EQUALLY IMPORTANT, you are given both the re-edited AND the original and unaltered original theatrical trilogy. Whichever version you prefer, you get it in this DVD set.
Quick comparing of the popular orders. (A) "Numerical Order" 1,2,3,4,5,6 This is a good choice. This order presents the events in logical order and gives you a well written story. Darth Vader's childhood, troubled teenage years, his fall to the dark side, his rise to power, his redemption and finally his death. The main disadvantage is that you have to accept a 20 + year step back in special effect time between 3 and 4. (Although 4 is often hailed as the best.) So this may not be an issue for you.
(B) "Production Order" 4,5,6,1,2,3 Some people like this. It has its logic. Some people consider 4,5,6 the question films and 1,2,3 the answer films. Also, this leads to cinematic continuity. The main disadvantage here is that you end in the middle of the story. (Especially when the end of Part 3 makes it look like a whole new chapter is beginning.)
(C) "Machete Order" 4,5,1,2,3,6 This approach tries to keep cinematic continuity in tact while at the same time putting "Return of the Jedi" last. While I prefer 'Numerical Order,' this approach has a special advantage. You get to see the hero's journey in 4 and 5. Then you go back and see the villain's path in 1,2, and 3 before the final showdown in 6. The one disadvantage here is that you end up with a 6 hour flashback in the middle of "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
So whether you prefer the older original films (of 4, 5,and 6) or the edited newer versions, you will find what you want in this package. As I said, I'm not the biggest fan of "Star Wars." But knowing the advantages and disadvantages of the 3 orders is probably the best idea. No one order is going to work for everyone. Numerical Order, Production Order, and Machete Order all work for different people.
PS: if you’re looking for blu-ray Complete Saga, search for 2011 release. Looks like a book rather than a case and it’s hard to fake. Looking for DVD format, search 2006, it’s two box sets. Not so secret side note: you’ll find non-special edition theatrical releases of the original trilogy in the bonus material of the 2006 versions.
