Zavvi are bringing us a “Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back” exclusive 4K Steelbook
Talk about this release on Slack
In news that will shock no one, Zavvi are indeed continuing with their range of Star Wars 4K steelbooks, and next up it’s The Empire Strikes Back, widely regarded as one of the best sequels ever made.
Once again it will use original poster art, in this case an early teaser poster featuring Darth Vader.
Once again you’ll get 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 May 21st 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.
The Rebels scatter after the Empire attacks their base on the ice planet Hoth. Han Solo and Princess Leia are pursued by Imperials, while Luke trains with Jedi Master Yoda. Luke battles Darth Vader and learns the shocking truth of his past.

Really bad choice of artwork! ?
Oh my! So sad it doesn’t match ep 4 ?
Neil Hayes I Agree! ?
Lee Hewitson Tyler
D. Ian Evans on it thx bud ??
What happened to this sort of artwork to follow on from a new hope?!this is lazy artwork and not that impressive compared to this picture
Adam ‘chum’ Blackett should’ve definitely been this, can’t belive what they’ve chosen!
I like the teaser artwork, yes they could have chosen something better but it is the first poster released in 1979. So can see why they chose it. Maybe ROTJ will have the lightsaber teaser.
but they didn’t go that way for ANH..
Horrible choice. This throws off the first one. If you could get then permission to get the art for all three. Then why have this in the first place? Hope they change this.
Who ok’d this, Chirrut Îmwe?!!!! ?
Ashley Beeching who is chirrut Imwe???
Stuart Robinson Donnie yen’s blind character from rogue one
Paul Stone, cheers mate, I liked him, And Rogue One
This is horrid compared to ANH
Why does Disney do this? What a bloody awful design. So should’ve been this!
Not a fan myself, should’ve followed episode ivs original artwork
This isn’t confirmed artwork but it’s putting people off which isn’t a good thing
John Gibson-Hill it actually is. Check the article
Callum Micheluzzi oh no last I heard it wasn’t confirmed that’s sad
I’d love some mondo designed star wars steelbooks.
Michael Porter Excuse me can we keep it clean on here please. We don’t need that kind of erotica posting on this family forum.
Nobody likes the artwork but everyone will order it anyway! Should vote with your wallets and just not order it.
The Empire Strikes Dack? Who the hell is Dack? ?♂️?
(Terrible font choice)
Red carpet links don’t work for some reason, so what’s the point in being a red carpet person if it don’t work
Stuart Robinson they open at 9 main doors open at 12, so a 3 hour window.
Stuart Robinson red carpet breaks my links for some reason – never been able to sort it out. If you log in to your account first, then click, they’ll work fine.
You can also just click the link in the alert email that Zavvi send out as well
Neil Wall thanks for the info mate
Steelbook Blu Ray News thanks for the info
Stuart Robinson no probs, but if this is going to be the actual design I might cancel last weeks preorder!
The scalper purchases will be strong with this one. The force will awaken and strike them all down?
In the minority judging by these comments I but I’ve always like that poster.
they had one easy job….
Thats annoying as shit.
Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your artwork.
I am your artwork!
Why the design???????
Good old Zavvi. Yet another monumental f**k up.
How does red carpet work? Do you just log in and the film is then available to be ordered?
Gary Essery login first, then click here – http://tidd.ly/8eb67f76
Should be live around 9
Just ordered mine, it’s live on Red Carpet
“I’m Darth Vader, and welcome… to my Darkplace”
Amazing design on return of the Jedi
