Remasters of the first 6 Star Wars soundtracks coming May 4
“Disney Music Group announced today that May 4, a.k.a. Star Wars Day, will see the rerelease of John Williams’ original six Star Wars soundtracks on CD — all remastered, complete with new artwork and a collectible mini-poster. This includes A New Hope (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), and Revenge of the Sith (2005), which feature some of the Williams’ most memorable compositions, including the Star Wars main theme, “Imperial March,” and “Duel of the Fates.” You can get a first look at the covers below!

Are they going to be complete soundtracks like TPM ultimate edition?
My thoughts exactly.
They better be or they’ll be hell to pay
This is great. Not sure what’s wrong with the ones I have but ok. Like others mentioned, I hope they include ALL the music like the 2 disc TPM ultimate edition.
One nitpick, the color stripes should have gone like this (IMO):
The Phantom Menace: Yellow (Naboo Starfighter)
Attack of the Clones: I guess purple, but Orange would make sense too (as we are in between yellow and red)
Revenge of the Sith: Red (Mustafar, Rage, Anger, Turn to the darkside)
A New Hope: Silver (Classic)
The Empire Strikes Back: Blue (Hoth-Cold, Luke’s lightsaber color)
Return of the Jedi: Green (Endor, Luke’s lightsaber color)
