Star Wars Original Trilogy DVDs to Have Retro-styled Menus

Posted on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006. Last Updated on Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006 1:26 PM by Scott Jentsch

DVD Cover ArtThe original Star Wars trilogy DVD's that are being released in September will sport menus that are reminiscent of the original artwork used for publicizing the movies during their initial release.

The official Star Wars web site, aptly located at www.starwars.com, describes their approach and provides a photo gallery of the images:

New Wave Entertainment, who has developed a long-standing relationship with Lucasfilm on several Star Wars projects over the past decade, has created a series of stunning retro poster artwork menus for the original theatrical editions of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, all of which have been enhanced with animated movement and a three-dimensional look.

The Star Wars DVD's have always had interesting menus, so this news shows that the tradition continues with the release of the original "Han Shoots First" releases of the movies. While not everyone is happy about the lack of special attention these releases are getting, those that do purchase them will have some nice eye candy to enjoy as well as the unaltered versions of the movies.

The DVD's are available for pre-order now from Amazon.com, and will be released on September 12, 2006:
