Internet retailer Amazon received more than 85,000 pre-orders for The Star Wars Trilogy, beating the 50,000 pre-orders of the Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
"Fans have been waiting for this for a long time, so we knew there would be a lot of interest," a spokesperson said.
UK Supermarket giant Tesco estimated it would sell 500,000 box sets in the first week, beating its Two Towers record.
