    sound quality.

    Lucasfilm executive producer Jim Ward said he hoped the long-awaited

    The DVDs will be followed by Star Wars: Episode 3, due in cinemas in
    May 2005.

    The trilogy will be released on 21 September in the US and Canada,
    with international release dates "following closely", Lucasfilm said.

    The set contains a bonus disc filled with new features, including a
    feature-length documentary said to be the most comprehensive ever produced
    about the Star Wars saga.

    It also includes previously unseen footage from the making of all
    three films.

    sound and picture quality.

    The films will only be available as a collection, and the release will
    be greeted with delight by fans.

    for this release and how much they have been looking forward to it.

    trilogy on DVD is an awesome experience."

    Mr Ward said the DVDs would deliver "the very best possible sound and
    picture and take advantage of everything the medium can offer".

    "On top of that, we are creating added-value material that gets inside
    the creation of the Star Wars films in a fresh and fun way," he said.
