At the mega Star Wars event Celebration V in Orlando, Florida today - God himself announced that all six Star Wars live-action feature films will be released for the Blu-ray Disc format in 2011.

The greatest box set in the history of mankind is expected to arrive in late next year, and will astonishingly include never-before-seen deleted scenes!!! One of those scenes is this one shown and captured by a raving fan on a camcorder earlier today:

In case the scene is deleted from YouTube by Lucasfilm: "The scene has long been talked about online -- a sequence that depicts Luke Skywalker assembling his new, green-bladed lightsaber prior to infiltrating Jabba the Hutt's palace. After completing the Jedi weapon, Luke stashes it in R2-D2's dome. What makes the Jedi deleted clip so remarkable is that it made it all the way to postproduction before it was cut, so it is a rare example of a cut scene with completed visual effects and music. " - from

Mark Hamill, on stage with Carrie Fisher and Gorge Lucas, tries to contain the overwhelming excitement of the crowd, many who fainted, defecated, vomited and even ejaculated from sheer excitement.

At the moment, there are only plans to release the remastered Special Editions of the original trilogy and not the unedited original movies, probably because Lucas wants all your money for these versions first then ask you for more for the original versions on BRD in say... 2015. And he'd be correct, because he is God.

More info as I get it.

Colonel, let's face it, you'll buy the Starwars trilogy everytime it comes out in a new format in the vain hope that things will turn out differently in the end and maybe, just maybe, this time the Empire will win, is this not true Moff Whopper?
