2008 Trilogy DVD Releases

The Prequel Trilogy - 2008 DVD Release



Release Date: November 4, 2008
Retail Price: $39.99
Trailers/Extras: Listed Below

This release marked the first time the Prequel Trilogy was made availible at a lower cost, in a box set. The set is simply a collective repackaging of the previously released films. The set consists of a red and black, 5-sided slipcover, featuring Anakin and Obi-Wan on the front. The inserts and DVD art remain the same as previous releases, but the films are now in slim DVD cases, reducing the overall bulk of the set (personally, I'm not a fan of the slim cases).

Since the specifications of the DVDs are identical to the earlier releases, here are the links to each of the previous Prequel DVD releases:

The Phantom Menace
Attack of the Clones
Revenge of the Sith

The Original Trilogy - 2008 DVD Release



Release Date: November 4, 2008
Retail Price: $39.99
Trailers/Extras: Listed Below

Yet another re-release of the Original Trilogy on DVD. This set marked the third release of the 2004 discs, but was the first time the "Original Theatrical Versions" of all three films could be purchased together, in a box set. It is essentially a repackaging of the 2006 "Limited Edition" DVDs. The set consists of the blue and black 5-sided slipcover, featuring Luke and Vader on the front. The inserts and DVD art remain the same as the 2006 releases, but like the Prequel Trilogy set, these films are also in slim DVD cases this time around.

Since the specifications of the DVDs are identical to the 2006 releases of the films, here are the links to the 2006 DVD releases:

A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
