Man, I really hate that new key art. The thick black border is ugly and takes up a lot of real estate, the ships and laser swords that break the frame look gimmicky, and the monochromatic color scheme looks dull and faded.

It's weird, because Star Wars had some of the most iconic poster art in cinema, but the home video releases, from the 1995 releases on ("Faces"), have been hideous and uninsipired.

Well, my unpopular opinion is that, sorry, wrong thread.

But actually I sorta like them. Not the floating, photoshop heads look, but the black border is nice and having them all similar helps tie them together as a saga. If the actual art were better, they could be great.

But no need at this time, my Blu set is still holding up well enough.

I actually don’t mind the black borders either. Looks clean and classy. I think maybe the images could be a tad larger and maybe smaller borders but eh.

That $249+ 4K set is for suckers.

We all know Disney will probably release each saga and each movie separately

They're just a variation of the covers for the recent standalone Blu-rays. It's basically the same art, but with a different banner on the top.

Each movie seems likely, especially since it seems like they're going to do just that in Germany and Australia.

I don't know if Disney will do trilogy sets. That seems like something Fox did to squeeze a bit of extra money out before releasing standalones.

Official announcement for the UHD Blu-ray releases in the US, on March 31, same as Rise of Skywalker.
https://www.starwars.com/news/star-w...nment-announce
And on March 31, coinciding with the physical release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, eight Star Wars films are being released on 4K UHD for the first time: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
This article notes that there are now listings of each individual film on UHD, and give links to various stores:
https://comicbook.com/gear/2020/02/2...on-4k-blu-ray/

The Amazon listing shows each film as having three discs, so likely UHD Blu-ray of movie, Blu-ray of movie, and Blu-ray bonus disc. It also suggests it's the same 3 discs each film will have in the complete set, and that the complete set likely won't have any exclusive disc extras.

The individual movies are going to be hard to find for less than $25 (so that's $225 for 9 movies), so not so outrageous.

Or, depending on how you feel about the prequel and sequel trilogies, $75 for three or $150 for six.

The Disney Movie Club deal means that, at 50% off all but Rise of Skywalker and one other, you could get all 9 movies for about $187.50 + shipping. I currently have a 60% discount offer, so I can get all 9 for $163 + $16 shipping, so $179 total.

Or, since I already own The Last Jedi in 4K, I could drop that from the order and get Rogue One 4K instead for the same price and have an extra movie in 4K.

Yeah, definitely if you don't want all the movies u 4K/UHD, going individually is cheaper.

Yep, I have no interest in watching the PT again. And I'm not a completist.

So glad I joined DMC to get my hands on The Black Hole on Blu-ray. I'm in VIP status now so after buying one at full price (34.95), all the others are 13.95 each. I got next week's Pixar titles in on the deal too. And I'll be selling off all the digital codes, so when all is said and done my net cost on all 8 4K Star Wars discs will probably be around $60.

You should give them a shot, I revisited them after about 10 years and they hold up remarkably well; I'm not sure I'll be able to say the same about the last trilogy a decade from now.

In order to "hold up," they'd have had to have been good in the first place.

Yep, and I watched them recently with my kids. They certainly don't hold up. I forgot how much talk about politics about the Senate and whatnot were in these movies. I really wish the origin of Vader was done differently. Cause what we got doesn't really hold up at all. In fact, it still really sucks.

Yeah my kids couldn't make it through the political stuff. I thought they would like it because they have no attachment to the OT so they could look at it with fresh eyes and not the jaded cynicism all of us have (I still hate that yoda and Obi wan just ran off and hid for decades for reasons).

Obi-Wan and Yoda going into exile and hiding was established in the OT. The Prequels sort of had to end that way.

I understand that. But Obi Wan basically won, convincingly, then went off to grow old. Yoda tried once, lost, and (seemingly) never tried again, he just threw up his hands and grew old.

Just wait until they make a movie or show filling in that time for Yoda and then we all hate it and say they shouldn’t have done this!

Re: Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (Blu-ray & Ultra HD Blu-ray; 3/31/20)

The Digital Bits had an article from a few weeks ago detailing the bonus features on the older films

https://thedigitalbits.com/columns/m...ts/022120-1130
Here’s the latest details we have from studio sources regarding the confirmed bonus features on each, broken down disc by disc (new info is in CAPS)...

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Rick McCallum, Ben Burtt, Rob Coleman, and Dennis Muren) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 181 minutes) will include The Beginning (feature-length documentary), Conversations: Doug Chiang Looks Back, Discoveries from Inside: Models & Miniatures, EXTENDED AND DELETED SCENES, FILMMAKER AND CAST INTERVIEWS (including George Lucas on the Digital Revolution, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Rick McCallum, Ben Burtt, Rob Coleman, Pablo Helman, John Knoll, and Ben Snow) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 196 minutes) will include Conversations: Sounds in Space, Discoveries from Inside: Costumes Revealed, From Puppets To Pixels: Digital Characters in Episode II (feature-length documentary), EXTENDED AND DELETED SCENES, CAST AND CREW INTERVIEWS, the State of the Art: The Previsualization of Episode II documentary, The Art of Attack of the Clones, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Rick McCallum, Rob Coleman, John Knoll, and Roger Guyett) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 327 minutes) will include Conversations: The Star Wars That Almost Was, Discoveries from Inside: Holograms & Bloopers, Within a Minute: The Making of Episode III (feature-length documentary), FILMMAKER AND CAST INTERVIEWS, The Journey: Part 1 & 2 documentary, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Solo: A Star Wars Story is being released separately in new packaging that matches the other single-film 4K SKUs. We believe that this will be the same 2-disc 4K/Blu-ray combo package released widely previously, which included Deleted Scenes and 9 featurettes (Solo: The Director & Cast Roundtable, Kasdan on Kasdan, Remaking the Millennium Falcon, Escape from Corellia, The Train Heist, Team Chewie, Becoming a Droid: L3-37, Scoundrels, Droids, Creatures, and Cards: Welcome to Fort Ypso, and Into the Maelstrom: The Kessel Run). WHAT WE DON’T KNOW is whether the previous Target-exclusive bonus featurette The Millennium Falcon: From Page to Park will also be included or not.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is also being released separately (and for the first time) in 4K Ultra HD in packaging that matches the other films. We expect that the bonus content will match the previous Blu-ray release, including 12 featurettes (The Stories: A Rogue Idea, Jyn: The Rebel, Cassian: The Spy, K-2SO: The Droid, Baze & Chirrut: Guardians of the Whills, Bodhi & Saw: The Pilot & the Revolutionary, The Empire, Visions of Hope: The Look of Rogue One, The Princess & The Governor, Epilogue: The Story Continues, and Rogue Connections). WHAT WE DON’T KNOW is whether the previous Target-exclusive bonus featurettes (Inside the Creature Shop and Digital Storytelling) will also be included or not.

Star Wars: A New Hope will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Carrie Fisher, Ben Burtt, and Dennis Muren) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 101 minutes) will include Conversations: Creating a Universe, Discoveries from Inside: Weapons & the First Lightsaber, Anatomy of a Dewback, CAST INTERVIEWS, EXTENDED AND DELETED SCENES, Aboard The Death Star Overview, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Irvin Kershner, Carrie Fisher, Ben Burtt, and Dennis Muren) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 125 minutes) will include Conversations: The Lost Interviews including George Lucas on Editing The Empire Strikes Back (1979), Discoveries from Inside: Matte Paintings Revealed, the A Conversation with the Masters documentary (2010), FILMMAKER INTERVIEWS, EXTENDED AND DELETED SCENES, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi will include audio commentary (with George Lucas, Carrie Fisher, Ben Burtt, and Dennis Muren) and an archival commentary (by the cast and crew) on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 163 minutes) will include Conversations: The Effects, Discoveries from Inside: The Sounds of Ben Burtt, the Classic Creatures: Return of the Jedi documentary (1983), CAST AND CREW INTERVIEWS, EXTENDED AND DELETED SCENES, Death Star II Space Battle Overview, AND MUCH MORE (essentially a Making of Collection of legacy content).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will include audio commentary with director JJ Abrams on Disc One. The Bonus Disc (running time 149 minutes) will include the same bonus features released previously on Blu-ray, including the Secrets of The Force Awakens documentary, Blueprint of a Battle: The Snow Fight, John Williams: The Seventh Symphony, ILM: The Visual Magic of the Force, Deleted Scenes (at least 6 – more in this in a moment), The Story Awakens: The Table Read, Building BB-8, Crafting Creatures, and the Force for Change promo. WHAT WE DON’T KNOW is whether the previous retail and digital exclusive featurettes will be included or not. Among those were Foley: A Sonic Tale, Sounds of the Resistance, Dressing the Galaxy, The Scavenger & The Stormtrooper: A Conversation with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, and Inside the Armory. There were also a trio of retail-exclusive deleted scenes (Leia & The Resistance, Unkar Plutt at Maz’s Castle, and Tunnel Standoff). At least one source has suggested that these will be included, but we’ve been unable to confirm this with Disney thus far.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will include audio commentary with director Rian Johnson. AT LEAST ONE RETAIL SOURCE suggests that the Blu-ray in the package will include much-welcome a surprise: The Score-Only Version of the Movie that was previously a Digital exclusive (we have as yet been unable to confirm this with Disney). The Bonus Disc (running time 165 minutes) should carry over the same package of extras found on the previous Blu-ray and 4K version of the film, including The Director and The Jedi documentary, Balance of the Force, Scene Breakdown: Lighting the Spark – Creating the Space Battle, Scene Breakdown: Snoke and Mirrors, Scene Breakdown: Showdown on Crait, and Andy Serkis Live!: One Night Only. There were also 14 deleted scenes with Rian Johnson introduction. WHAT WE DON’T KNOW is whether the previous Target-exclusive featurette Meet the Porgs will be included or not. At least one source has suggested that it will, but we’ve been unable to confirm this with Disney thus far. We also don’t know if this 4K disc will still have Dolby Vision HDR as before, or whether it’s been re-authored without it.

I HAVE CONFIRMED THAT NONE OF THESE OTHER 4K DISCS WILL INCLUDE DOLBY VISION HDR—that will be Digital only.
So "The Beginning: Making Episode I" made it onto the TPM bonus disc, but it looks like 'Empire of Dreams" isn't included on any of the bonus discs, unless it's part of the "much more" on one of the discs.

Empire Of Dreams and From Star Wars To Jedi aren't available as part of the extras because they include original shots from the OT that were later shit over for Lucas' Special Editions.

OR Disney likes having a few exclusives on D+, which is where you can watch Empire of Dreams last I checked.
