We think just about every Star Wars fan owns the special edition complete saga blu-ray collection of the films with the beautiful Tatooine cover art but since the franchise has been acquired by Disney, collectors should get ready to splurge on the beloved series once again. There is literally nothing that is changing with the new edition besides the updated packaging.
