Zavvi are bringing us this new 4K steelbook release of the first Star Wars film, Episode IV – A New Hope, featuring the iconic original poster art. The release will include the film on 4K and Blu-ray disc, as well as bonus Blu-ray full of extras.

Pre-orders are due to go live at Zavvi on Thursday May 7th so ignore any ‘sold out’ notices before then.

They’ll be live around 9am UK time for Red Carpet subscribers (though possibly earlier, so keep an eye on our Twitter feed, just in case…), and around 12 noon for everyone else. Our Red Carpet links don’t work properly for some reason, so you may need to log in first, then click the link again. Once the Red Carpet period is up, the link will work fine.

And yes, we’re fully expecting all the films to get a release over the coming months, again using the original poster art, and we’ll keep you updated on the exact plans as we find out.

  4. I’m assuming it’s the maclunkey edition?

  5. Mike Traylen We have to get these! The artwork is amazing ?

  6. Andrew Jones says:

    Do you think they will re-release the existing 4K steelbooks so there is a matching set? I think it’s just episodes 8, 9 and Solo which already have 4K Steelbooks?

  7. For the time being could be only way to own the original trilogy without having to buy all 9 as a set.

  18. Robert Deegan says:

    Any news about a non Steelbook 4K release ? Or a release date for this, or how they are going to stagger the Steelbook releases ?

  19. Carl Bentley Carl Bentley says:

    I’ve ordered, but what is the release date?

  20. Nigel Bullus says:

    This was sold out in 24 hours. Zavvi need to stop people buying more than 2 copies. Red Carpst subscribers are buying multiple copies and then flogging them on EBay for twice the price. Same happened with Jaws.
