    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Force will return to retail
    stores Nov. 1 with a double whammy: "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge
    of the Sith" will be released on DVD, and "Star Wars Battlefront II"
    will be made available for all the top video game platforms.

    "Sith" is the year's top-grossing movie, with domestic box office
    earnings of $373.9 million (and an additional $425 million overseas).
    The two-disc set will include a full-length documentary; two new
    featurettes, one exploring the prophecy of Anakin Skywalker as the
    Chosen One and the other on the movie's stunts; and a 15-part
    collection of "Web documentaries."

    The five previous "Star Wars" movies have sold "well in excess" of 100
    million units on DVD and VHS, said Steve Feldstein, senior vp
    marketing communications at 20th Century Fox, which is partnering on
    the release with "Star Wars" creator George Lucas' Lucasfilm
    production banner.

    Lucas was personally involved in the creation of the "Sith" DVD and
    its bonus features, said Lucasfilm vp marketing and distribution Jim
    Ward.

    "From the beginning of production, George wanted to be sure we
    chronicled everything that went into the making of 'Episode III'
    specifically to create an incredible DVD experience," Ward said. "This
    DVD has literally been three years in the making."

    For video gamers, LucasArts' "Star Wars Battlefront II" will be
    available for Sony's PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable,
    Microsoft's Xbox and Windows platforms. It is the sequel to the
    best-selling "Star Wars" video game of all time and adds all-new space
    combat, playable Jedi characters and never-before-seen environments
    from "Sith."

    The game also offers a new single-player experience that takes the
    player through an epic saga centered on Darth Vader's elite 501st
    Legion of Stormtroopers. Every action the player takes has an impact
    on the battlefield and, ultimately, on the entire "Star Wars" galaxy.

    The "Sith" DVD will include a demo of two levels from the game,
    playable only on Xbox.
