When the install base guarentees George Lucas millions of sales, and not 10's of thousands (or even 100's of thousands) of sales. In other words, it's not likely to be a title released until the format war is over. My guess would be ~2010.

On that note, I wonder if they'll release 2010 in 2010 on Blu-Ray

Well it actually has a possibility of this year? Because 2007 is the 30th anniversary of Star Wars first movie. 1977.

I have all the new series on DVD, older series in 2 different DVD versions and original VHS - one thing for sure I don't need is any addition series with DVD anywhere on them. But without hardly even thinking about, I would purchase Blu-ray.

I think just because this is a new person and the most popular area. Here we can make it a Smack down topic right now.

If Star Wars did come out on Blu-ray, would that bring the end of this war within months of its release? What more does it take?

I've said it before but: We will DEFINITELY get a release date for Star Wars on Blu-ray at or before Celebration IV in May, and I fully expect the release date to be in time for Holiday 2007.

I doubt this very much. In fact LucasFilm has already canceled their plans for the 30th anniversary set due to the underwhelming sales of the "Han shoots first" original set. Their are no plans in the near future.

Star Wars won't be coming to bluray any time soon. Lucas held off on releasing the trilogy on regular DVD for a long time.

Lucas won't release on HD just to do it. It is too soon. To soon after everyone bought the VHS and DVD versions - it'll be tougher to get everyone to pony up another wheelbarrow full of money on the same movies AGAIN.

I also think that Lucas might wait until FOX goes neutral. I can't see Lucas wanting to alienate some of his fan base due to format. He'd also lose money on "lost" sales if they were released on one format only.

This is all my speculation. I think the Right Honorable Mr. George Lucas will call the shot on this one, not Fox.
