Is Star Wars Finally Coming to DVD?

Test Pattern at Coming Attractions has information about a two-disc, super-secret DVD development project between LucasFilm and Panasonic Disc Services Corporation (PDSC). While the name of the film hasn't been revealed, the project is code-named "Blue Harvest," which is the exact code used during production of "Return of the Jedi." Coincidence? Hell no!

A digital "Jedi" would be pretty tootin' sweet but it doesn't make sense for George Lucas to begin the DVD transfer with the sixth film in the series. Test Pattern says the film at the heart of this project is probably "Episode I." The prospect of Jar-Jar in my living room makes my innards crawl, but if that's what it takes to bring the original trilogy to DVD, so be it.

Possible release dates and specifications for the double-disc package are available in Test Pattern's full report.
