The final instalment in the Star Wars saga has been given a DVD release date in the US of 1 November.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith completed George Lucas' double trilogy, which began in 1977.

The two-disc DVD will include a documentary produced by Lucasfilm, and features on stunts and Anakin Skywalker's turn to the Dark Side.

Lucas said he wanted to chronicle everything that went into making the final film for the DVD release.

Cross generation

"Now fans old and new alike can enjoy the entire Star Wars saga whenever they want," said Steven Feldstein of 20th Century Fox home video.

Other special features on the DVD include an internet documentary series featuring 15 segments produced for the web.

A new video game, Star Wars: Battlefront II, will also be released on 1 November.

Revenge of the Sith has taken $376m (215.5m) at the US and Canada box office since it opened in cinemas in May.
