Recently spotted on The Digital Bits:
In other DVD news today, SonyBMG has announced that the soundtrack CD for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith will street on 5/3. So why is this DVD news? Well, as it turns out, the CD will include a bonus DVD-Video disc that will feature a 70-minute presentation of some 16 newly-created music videos of composer John Williams' signature themes from all 6 Star Wars films (set to footage from the films) that takes viewers chronologically through the entire saga. Each will be introduced by actor Ian McDiarmid (Senator Palpatine) and will feature the music along with dialogue and sound effects excerpts in full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. The package will also include a booklet with liner notes by George Lucas and a poster.
Also via the Digital Bits is the link to this three-part Onion AV Club series of interviews with Warner Brothers's George Feltenstein, Home Vision's Lee Ferdinand and Something Weird Video's Mike Vraney, all talking about releasing classic films on DVD. Feltenstein is the force behind the amazing Warners's DVD collections such as the recent "Film Noir", "Classic Comedies" and "From Broadway to Hollywood" sets.
