Late last week, some of the the special features were announced. Among them are a 150-minute documentary charting George Lucas's vision entitled "Star Wars: The Independent Films", a 30-minute detailed look at the evolution of characters, a 20-minue documentary entitled "The Influence of Star Wars", a Lightsaber Fights Featurette, a 1977 Featurette which will show the saturation of "Star Wars" into pop culture in 1977, a special Episode III "Behind the Scenes", trailers and tv spots, about 300 pieces of never before seen artwork, and, finally, a demo of the LucasArts sci-fi shooter "Star Wars: Battlefront".
The question of whether the "Star Wars: Battlefront" demo will be playable or not has yet to be answered. Gamespot seems to be leaning a little toward the playable version, based on the fact that in FYE.com's product description of the game the demo is referred to as "Star Wars Battlefront X-Box Video Game Demo". Gamespot's reasoning is that if the demo is console specific, despite the game's release on the PS2, PC and the Xbox, then it will be a playable demo on a specific (Xbox) console. However, the demo does have a 15 minute time limit, and, as our own the Chris points out, "Star Wars: Battlefront" is a multiplayer game, it seems more to us that it will simply be a timed non-playable demo. Nonetheless, we are very excited to see the merging of games and DVDs, particularly when it involves the most highly anticipated DVD of all time.
