Twice the pride, double the fall.

Once this sets sales records, I'm sure Lucas will be ready to crank out the 8 disc super-duper (re-edited) complete six movie set.
Darth Does DVD - Yahoo! News: "The much heralded final installment in George Lucas' epic Star Wars saga, Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith, will be released on DVD galaxy-wide Nov. 1, Lucasfilm and 20th century Fox Home Entertainment jointly announced Tuesday.
The release, timed for the holiday shopping onslaught, will likely be one of the year's top sellers. Not only is Revenge of the Sith the biggest moneymaker of 2005, setting box office records and generating $784 million and counting in worldwide ticket sales, it also means that all six Star Wars films will be available on DVD for the first time.
The DVD will be released as a two-disc set augmented by a feature-length making-of documentary, two new featurettes (one of exploring Anakin Skywalker as the prophesized 'Chosen One' and the other providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the movie's stunts) and the 15-part collection of Lucasfilm's Webisodes on the film.
'From the beginning of the production, George wanted to be sure we chronicled everything that went into the making of Episode III specifically to create an incredible DVD experience,' says Jim Ward, vice president of marketing and distribution for Lucasfilm. 'This DVD has literally been three years in the making and it's going to be a fantastic way to complete the Star Wars saga at home.' "
