As the build up to Star Wars:The Rise of Skywalker slowly ramps up, new information has surfaced for those looking to revisit the series to date.
The entire Star Wars film series to date is set to be re-released on Blu-Ray, per jedinews.co.uk. Citing new listings on blu-ray.com, the site reveals that the eight Skywalker Saga films, alongside Rogue One and Solo, are due to be released separately on September 22. Each release sports new cover art, differentiating them from their DVD counterparts.
What we’re unable to confirm, however, is whether each release will have any new features or bonus content previously unseen.

Likely to be detailed closer to the time of release, there is every chance each release will feature the content found on the current Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-Ray collection, released in 2011.
Fans hoping these new releases will yield the return of the pre-Special Edition versions of the Original Trilogy will likely be disappointed. While the demand for the original cuts of these films remains, plans for their re-release don’t appear to be in place.
Some sources have previously claimed the Original Trilogies original cut has been in line for a re-release for a while, however this did not come to pass. One would expect the Special Edition versions of the Original Trilogy to be the versions released in this collection.
It, too, is worth mentioning rumors that surfaced in April of this year. thedigitalfix.com reported an anonymous Disney insider claimed the entire Star Wars series to this point would be given a 4K remastering, to be released in 2020. Whether this new information has affected these plans remains to be seen. However, it is worth noting that original story stated 4K scans of the original versions of the Original Trilogy would be the ones used in this new release.
