LucasFilm To Re-release Trilogy - On Cassette Only

Lucasfilm, which pulled its Star Wars Trilogy collection from video stores in 1997, announced Tuesday that it will bring it back in time for the holiday season on Nov. 21.

In a news release, the company said that it will release the trilogy on videocassette only and that it will be available in both pan-and-scan and widescreen versions.

The collection will also contain a ten-minute preview of Lucasfilm's upcoming Star Wars: Episode II, including interviews with George Lucas and members of the cast and crew.
