Zavvi has just started taking pre-orders on a new SteelBook edition of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope and let’s just say the artwork destroys the lame packaging produced for Disney’s “Ultimate Collector’s Editions” released back in March (see artwork below).
The 3-disc Zavvi exclusive (release date July 27, 2020) sells for £29.99 (approx. $32 US) and comes with a UHD BD, BD, and second Blu-ray Disc full of bonus features.
Word is, all nine films will eventually get new packaging in SteelBook cases and hopefully, the editions will make it to Best Buy in the US.
Episode 4 – 27th July
Episode 5 – 3rd August
Episode 6 – 10th August
The 4k edition of ‘A New Hope’ is, like all UHD BDs, region-free (playable in A, B, and C regions) and features 2160p resolution with HDR10 and a 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
You can see a breakdown of the single 4k editions of ‘The Skywalker Saga’ films or more details about the complete 27-disc collection available at Best Buy in the US.
Any updates on whether Best Buy will get the steelbooks?
