Star Wars Still Not Slated for HighDef

According to John Singh, spokesperson for Lucasfilm Ltd., "Lucasfilm Ltd. has no plans to release any of the Star Wars movies on Blu-ray or HD DVD. Listings on Amazon.com or any other Web site are purely speculative and erroneous."

Amazon.com also has a speculative listing for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy on HD DVD. New Line Cinema hasn't discussed its plans for Lord of the Rings, beyond hinting at CES that the trilogy is in the works. New Line's parent company is Time Warner, also parent company of Warner Brothers. Warner supports both Blu-ray and HD DVD.

Amazon.com declined to comment on how the shopping site generates such information.

There isn't a clear winner yet in the HD DVD and Blu-Ray war, it's still neck and neck.

gta_cb3808d ago

yeh there good on DVD =)

or if you live in the UK you could bye Sky+ then record the Starwars in high deff off the movie channel =D simple, and costs MUCH less! =)

Star wars and lord of the rings are all huge movie series that people will pay more than average for a better version of (I own all the EE vesions of LotR). If they go exclusive they may sway quite a few people.

I personly want to get the Hd DVD drive for 360 but theres no must get movie, If SW or LotR go to HD DVD only I will get one, I dont care if they do abbandon it the week after Id be happy with just those films.

true dude! some films will make such a difference! =) and Starwars is deff one of them.

i am sure lucas will come out with a anniversary edition on DVD end of the month. I don't think he will release a blu ray or hd-dvd of star wars. The base of this new formats is still to small.

yeh i although i would love to see them release this on High Deff i reckon they would only wanna release them once, and with a battle going on...

[EDIT]
