I can't imagine much for the OT or PT is going to be "new", aside from the limited stuff that was supposedly held back from the initial Blu-ray release (more deleted scenes, etc).

I'd love to be surprised...but I am not expecting to see anything we haven't already seen one way or another. I am presuming some Celebration panels ("Date with a Princess", etc.) might make it in, or other stuff that has been available elsewhere, to pad it out.

My secret hope is that when they had everyone at Pinewood to do TFA that they wrangled Hamill, Ford, and Fisher together to do something like a full-length commentary on the originals, but as there wasn't even a rumor of that happening, I think I'm going to be SOL on that one.

Who says what it should or shouldn't have hit, aside from the people actually doing the grading? Low brightness HDR doesn't equal "fake HDR", it's an aesthetic choice that's been made and if the folks crying foul just said "I don't like dim HDR, I want everything to pop" then I'd have a lot more respect for them than when they try to justify their personal preferences behind a bunch of technobollocks and gatekeeping bullshit like how it looks worse on supermarket special HDR TVs, like they're the 'true voice' of HDR or something.

I literally laughed out loud when Vincent said of The Mandalorian that doing "proper" i.e. eyebrow-roastingly bright HDR is reliant on how much money is being spent on it, him being utterly oblivious that The Mandalorian is one of THE most expensive TV shows ever made, reportedly costing $15 million per episode (!) and that it's graded by one of the premier post houses in the business (CO3).

One of their finishing artists literally said that Mando wasn't graded to be ultra bright but apparently that's not enough evidence for some, them coming up with conspiracy theories that these guys would lose their jobs if they didn't stick to the Disnee PR line, like they're spotty goobers working for peanuts out of a sweatshop in Van Nuys. Just.....no.

The outtakes unveiled at the 40th anniversary celebrations may be bonus material for this set, perhaps, also the old Saga documentary?

I mean, Im not really concerned with the mandalorian, it is what is. But in regards to the movies, if you grade the ST one way, and then release the other movies with completely different brightness ranges, that seems a bit out of place, no?

It almost seems like a waste of Dolby Vision, which who knows if it will be on disc anyhow. Im not saying the movies have to hit 10k nits, but I would expect the grading to be more in line with the movies that were already released in HDR.

It's not VFX if it's in camera, it's SFX.

You whippersnappers need to quit your complaining.
Wish they would bring this set back, in 4K.

My personal Star Wars journey began with this VHS set over 20 years ago.

With that bias in mind (lol) I still feel that these are the classiest individual covers out of any home video release of the OT.

Well, aside from anything featuring the original poster artwork of course.

Lol I remember going to the store with my dad to pick this set up. I had worn out the '87 editions that we had. He was not pleased to have to buy them "a second time".

Here we are now and I've bought this trilogy 5 more times myself and about to get it again.

Why? If by "the other movies" you mean George's ones then he can have them looking however he wants. JJ made his movies and graded them how he wanted, Rian made his movie and VERY much graded it how he wanted which is basically SDR in an HDR container and that's what tickles me here. If you want to see an honest to goodness "waste of Dolby Vision" that is entirely intentional on the part of the director and DP then look no further than The Last Jedi, which is what makes this hand wringing so pointless. Star Wars has already been there, done that.

It hasn't been debunked, only contested by the perpetrators. The only argument anyone has is that it's supposed to be fake.

TLJ and Solo were both pretty low-nit, so I'm not sure what you're trying to say with your last point.

Solo had very low APL but some lovely specular brightness, although I'm quite sure that a heatmap would tell me that it's shite. Oh well.

It looks like a nice day out to me, so global warming isn't real.

No need to even go out, I'm sure that the heatmap will tell us where the hotspots are.

Maybe we should burn the weather man at the stake while we're at it.

It looks like Best Buy has updated the photo in their listing with the actual discs, as well as a signed letter from, what looks to be Mark Hamill. Still (im)patiently waiting for them to announce all of the features!

Love it.

The discs, not the packaging. Also they changed the disc art on TLJ, all three discs, and the two TFA discs.
