Send Article to a Friend

Star Wars Episode I for Macintosh Only! In an exclusive arrangement with Twentieth Century Fox and Lucasfilm, Ltd., Apple interim CEO Steve Jobs announced today that 10,000 certificates for a special limited-edition DVD version of the upcoming movie Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace will be bundled with DVD-equipped Power Macintosh G3 and PowerBook G3 computers purchased through the Apple online store. In addition to the complete theatrical release of the film, the commemorative DVD will include interviews with Episode I cast members and Star Wars creator George Lucas, the complete Episode I screenplay, QuickDraw 3D models of vehicles and aliens featured in the movie, Episode I trailers, and a 30-minute behind-the-scenes look at the making of Episode 1. The actual DVD disks will begin shipping to customers on 01-Aug-99, a scant ten weeks after the premiere of the film. Given the enormous box-office revenue likely to be generated by Star Wars Episode I, commercial DVD releases of the movie may not be available for a year or more. [GD]
