STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA
‘Complete’ in that includes Episodes I – VI, this impressive box set is worth purchasing for the 40+ hours of bonus content alone – the best of which is the deleted material from A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, plus the vintage 1977 featurette The Making of Star Wars. You may even find yourself reassessing the prequel trilogy…
