Star Wars: The Complete Saga collection of films on Blu-ray has reached a worldwide sale record of one million copies, generating $84 million in sales, according to Lucasfilm, and earning a record all-time top Blu-Ray pre-order and catalog title.
In the breakdown of the markets, North America sold 515,000 copies since September 16, accounting for $38 million in sales during the first week of release.
Star Wars: The Complete Saga includes all six Star Wars films, in addition to various bonus materials such as documentaries, making-of footage, and spoofs of George Lucas's space opera.

These films will be released in theaters soon. Following the success of films like The Lion King in 3D, Lucas said he plans to re-release the films in 3D.
