Despite threats of boycotts from a small, but vocal and very annoying, group of Star Wars “fans”; the Blu-Ray release of the complete saga has shattered records. In just one week; Fox and Lucasfilm have made about $84 million on the release and it’s sold roughly a million units. That makes it by far the best selling Blu-Ray release of all time.
What makes it such a big deal that it’s selling to well is that the Complete Saga is a nine-disc Blu-Ray set that goes for anywhere from $80 to $130; depending on where you buy it. The previous Blu-Ray record holder was Avatar, and Star Wars knocked it out in its first week on shelves.
