What is so bad about Jar Jar Binks?
He is a bit annoying but he is hilarious.

Own this you must! Unlike the individual trilogy sets, this box set of all six films has extras those do not, including two commentaries, deleted scenes, interviews, artwork, model and costume views (some have video too), as well as making-of documentaries, trailers, Star Wars spoofs and much more!

Unfortunately, it does NOT have the extras that came with the 2-disc DVD's that came out in 2004-2005, like the awesome documentary "Empire of Dreams", the web documentaries, featurettes, and what many people want - the ORIGINAL THEATRICAL versions of the original trilogy, as they appeared in theaters in 1977, 1980, and 1983. So if you have these DVD's, SAVE THEM!

Who wrote that SUMMARY? I realize that 99% of the world has seen all the movies, but WHY would you give away the greatest reveal of the original trilogy... IN THIS BLURB?!
Sorry to shout, but I just thoughtless. Their is a million other things to say about this movie series. Grumble...

whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy di d they edit it????????? the old version is 1000x better!

In a glaxy, far, far away. We see the beginning of the Star Wars unverse, and the characters ( and yes even the droids ). One of George Lucas's great film Epics

Other: Please don't watch the movies in numerical order. Start at Ep 4 (New Hope) then after ep 6, go to ep 1 (Phantom Menace). This is the right order as it keeps the reveals correct.
