20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is allocating retailers and distributors on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith based on sales of past top Fox releases, according to Video Business. The article by Susanne Ault concludes that Fox is taking this step because of the heavy returns that have hit some DVD blockbusters, including The Incredibles and Shrek 2, this year.
The DVD will be released in a two-disc set with lots of extras, including 'making of' featurettes, deleted scenes (including Yoda landing on Dagobah), and audio commentary by Lucas and other members of the film's crew.
