More Star Wars Blu-Ray Content Revealed



With the September 12th UK release date creeping upon us quickly, we have some more details of what will be included as Extra material in the most anticipated blu-ray release of the past few years. We already had a vague idea of what the nine disc spectacular would include, but now Star Wars Aficionado and TheForce.Net have cleared away some of the mystery by listing some of the features in further detail, the lovely clever devils that they are.
