    No doubt when it comes round to the DVD release of Episode 3 in November they will re-release the previous 5 films with DTS tracks and new extra features all in a super special extreme edition boxset.

    I'd be surprised if any Star Wars film was released on DVD with DTS.

    By the way revenge of the Sith having DTS is more to do with the cinema release and like the Phantom menace and attack of the clones before it, they both had DTS!

    I dont think Fox have ever released a DVD with DTS. So i doubt SW will.
    Never know with Blu Ray and HD DVD.

    I just realised that i also own several Fox DTS dvds too! :rolleyes:

    Im thinking now that the reason they wont use DTS is becase Lucas uses THX? I know THX isnt an actual sound system but that could be the reason?

    I certainly wont be buying any more Star Wars DVDs except for Episode III when it comes out.. I may buy the films if they come out on BluRay but thats it as far as I go.. theyre great films that we grew up with but fleecing the public can go so far in my view!

    Most film prints are optionally available to cinemas in DTS, but that doesn't mean that the DVD version will also be DTS.

    Just have a look at the end credits from any movie and it will list what audio formats it was available in to the cinema like Dolby Digital, DTS or Sony's SDDS.

    None of the other Star Wars DVDs have DTS so I don't think Episode 3 will either.

    THX Optimised Dolby soundtracks sound excellent IME (episode 1, for example). Is a DTS mix really going to sound better?

    I can give you two reasons why DTS won't make it onto the DVD.

    1) Lucasfilm and Dolby Labs co-invented Dolby Digital 5.1 EX.

    Why would they include the rival DTS format??? Theatrically, they have no choice since some cinemas may only have DTS equipment to show the movie.

    2) Don't they have to pay a licence fee to Universal who co-own DTS??

    That would eat into George Luca$'$ profits since he gets a cut of the DVD sales. With Lucas it always about the money.
