Merrick here... 

 

A few days back, rumors/suspicions were borne out when we learned that a major STAR WARS-related announcement would transpire at CES in Vegas - today.  Details on forthcoming Blu-Rays were a safe bet at the time - other possibilities (a 3D conversion of the theatrical films?) 

Sure 'nuff, Dart Vader and his Stormstroopers just showed up at the Panasonic Booth C9408 to spread the word.  

The following will be updated with more information as more comes in, but here's the gist of the matter so far...

THIS just in from our reader Ivo, via iPhone (thank you!)
