Following on from the original trilogy, Zavvi are now bringing us 4K steelbooks of the Star Wars prequels, starting with The Phantom Menace

Once again it will use a piece of original poster art, and include the movie on 4K and Blu-ray, along with a third disc of extras.

Pre-orders are due to go live at Zavvi on Thursday June 11th 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 will need to log in first, then click the link below. Once the Red Carpet period is up, the link will work fine.

Pre-order: Zavvi

Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn rescue Queen Amidala, ruler of a peaceful planet invaded by dark forces. On their escape, they discover nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker, a child prodigy who is unusually strong in The Force.

  3. Running Time At 181 minutes????

  4. I really dig this one!
    But as they present these new Star Wars Steels one by one, the choice of artwork for Empire Strikes Back seems more and more strange!
    These steelbooks feature original posters with many of the cast included.
    All except one! Empire with its floating Vader head.
    What were they thinking!? ?

  5. Neil Wall Neil Wall says:

    Oh look another Steelbook with the original poster, damn it Disney with the bloody horrible empire case!

    I bet Best Buy will get these months later ?

  7. It amazes me that they didn’t go with the “special edition” Drew Struzan posters as they essentially match his prequel posters.
    Much like the 2015 UK DVDs. At least that would’ve made sense.

    Saves them for another re-issue I guess. Milk it.
