I’ve been hearing some rumors (I think they were rumors…) about this, and now we have it from the source: Family Guy will debut their long-awaited Empire Strikes Back spoof not on TV, but on DVD and two-disc Blu-ray. They’ll both be out December 22.
See, while StarWars.com and the various bookseller sites are telling me The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars won’t be out until fall, Diamond has it listed for Wednesday (twice: both versions?) under merchandise which means, presumably, coming to a comic store near you (if they ordered it.) Just for Comic-Con? Perhaps…
Bryan Young has the specs – and cover – on the set from Lucasfilm and Warner Home Video. Bonus features include seven Director’s Cut Episodes, featurettes for each episode (though that sounds like the ones we’ve already seen on StarWars.com,) and a 64-page production journal. The Blu-Ray version will also come with The Jedi Temple Archives, “An extensive database exploring test footage, early concept art, 3-D character and object turnarounds and early animation.”
The suggested retail price is $44.98 for DVD and $59.99 for Blu-ray.
ETA: On StarWars.com.
