So gargantuan a behemoth is this whole franchise that even we head-shaking non-believers can recognise the commercial import of these releases. The 3D "lenticular" images on the sleeves are doing my eyes in, but I'll retain the composure to report that John Williams' bombastic scores for the three original Star Wars films are here repackaged (either as box set or three doubles) and digitally remastered. You get archival bonus tracks, posters, screensavers and various Internet links.

Star Wars Trilogy – Sony Classical

So gargantuan a behemoth is this whole franchise that even we head-shaking non-believers can recognise the commercial import of these releases. The 3D “lenticular” images on the sleeves are doing my eyes in, but I’ll retain the composure to report that John Williams’ bombastic scores for the three original Star Wars films are here repackaged (either as box set or three doubles) and digitally remastered. You get archival bonus tracks, posters, screensavers and various Internet links. Strikes me as some kind of covert attack of the clones, but if Williams is to be granted a tribute (he won an Oscar for the first of these), this is full-on and fitting.
