The HDRoom’s Dan Bradley was another tech-oriented journalist invited to Lucasfilm’s Blu-ray junket. The first part of his report covers a few basics we’ve heard about from the other sites and Lucasfilm themselves. Part two focuses on Matthew Wood and sound mixing. And part 3 takes on, of course, the deleted scenes, special features and Dennis Muren.
Here’s one interesting bit:
In response to my question, Kayleen answered “You’ll have to wait and see! The Holiday Special is a challenge, but look for some Easter Eggs. What’s a Star Wars release without a couple of Easter Eggs?” I read into that as something pertaining to, if not the entire Holiday Special is hidden on these discs. These Easter Eggs are also what LucasFilm is referring to when stating the leaked bonus features are “incomplete.”
An additional Blu-ray inner sleeve depicts a scene from Droids, the animated cartoon revolving around the further adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Does that mean an episode of Droids or maybe something from the Ewoks television show is hidden as an Easter Egg? We’ll have to wait and find out on September 16, 2011.
I’ve always thought that the Holiday Special – or the less tedious bits of it, anyway – would make an excellent Easter Egg.
As the legion of Star Wars accounts on Twitter grows, it’s getting harder to keep track of. It’s impossible to list everyone, but here are a few accounts that may be of interest.

Time for the finale of the Ryloth three-part story on The Clone Wars tonight! In “Liberty of Ryloth”, Mace Windu steps into the spotlight as he seeks to liberate the capital of Ryloth from the Seps – and to do so, he’s going to need the help of the Twi’lek freedom fighter, Cham Syndulla.
StarWars.com takes a peek at the plot. Is it Mace who should be called “The Negotiator”?
It’s Friday, and you know what that means… In tonight’s new episode, ‘The Gungan General,’ Anakin and Obi-Wan finally get that whole reluctant alleigance with the enemy episode out of the way, with Jar-Jar riding to the rescue. I think I’m pretty safe in saying that hijinks ensue.
Tonight’s episode is ‘Lair of Grievous,’ which sounds kinda like a Scooby Doo episode. I’m not sure what that makes Kit Fisto, but considering who was present at Grievous’ debut it’s probably at least a little appropriate.
Last week: I’m doing this earlier than usual, so ‘Cloak of Darkness’ isn’t up yet, but you’ll find it here when it does. In the meantime, watch the Takeuchi video!
