Cue dramatic John Williams score: the Star Wars saga is coming to Google Play. StarWars.com has announced that all six movies will be arriving in DigitalHD, globally, beginning this Friday, April 10.

All six movies – yes you get Episodes I, II and III as well as the good ones, will be released to build up some anticipation for the release next year of Star Wars: The Force Awakens – the seventh film in the franchise. The release of the films is the first time through a digital distribution medium, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said of the release

We’re thrilled that fans will be able to enjoy the Star Wars saga on their digital devices wherever they go. These films broke new ground in technology, design, sound, and visual effects, and we’ve created some very special bonus material which delves into the saga’s rich history, including new and never-before-released conversations between legendary Star Wars artists — the masters who helped George bring his iconic universe to life.

The movies are available to pre-order right now over on Google Play and there’s going to be a host of never-before seen special features to go along with them.

    What I was hoping is that original print Star Wars would be in the bundle, instead of ANH.

    lol, amusing. Closest you’ll get to the original prints are the Laser Discs.

    “… five of the movies for $19.99 ea and A New Hope for $24.99”

    Ha ha,…… hang on, wasn’t 1st April last week?

    Divide those prices by 10

    The advert on the home page of the Google Play Store states you save 15% by buying the 6-movie bundle. However, it’s actually the same (well, 5c more really) price as buying individually.

    Yep. I thought getting all six would have some sort of discount, but the set price is the same as the total of all individual movies. Which is good as I’m only going to get IV, V & VI.

    I, III & III can go to hell.

    1 was bad because it had all that unfunny Gungan CGI crap but I didn’t think 2 & 3 were bad.

    It’s probably off the US price or something stupid. Similar stuff happens on Steam quite regularly.

    HD version versus SD pricing. Haven’t done the numbers myself but think that’s the difference.
