It won’t just be the Apple Watch that comes out this Friday, April 10th.
Walt Disney on Monday announced a completely digital re-release of the venerable Star Wars series, which will launch as a collection of all six episodes on April 10 through Apple’s iTunes and other outlets.
From Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, each installment comes with bonus content and will be made available for download on Apple’s mobile devices.
The collection will include bonus material, including never-before-released conversations between the artists behind the movies.
Along with an announcement on the official Star Wars website, Disney touted the upcoming release in an ad aired during the NCAA national basketball championship game on Monday night. While not mentioned in the commercial, each film sold under the Digital HD banner has been edited from its original theatrical version, much like “complete” Blu-Ray editions released after Episode III.
Fans can preorder individual episodes through iTunes for US$19.99 each, though collection pricing has not yet been made available. Bonus iTunes Extras content includes new footage and deleted scenes. According to The New York Times, rentals will not be offered.
