A lot of newer fans or people who just weren’t paying attention to video releases at the time don’t seem to realize that there was a significant gap between the VHS and DVD releases of The Phantom Menace of over a year, whereas Attack of the Clones came out on both formats at the exact same time, so the VHS used the exact same transfer as the Full Screen DVD, which was the “2002 Home Video cut” of the film.

The only reason the DVD of TPM is different from the VHS is because the DVD was delayed and by the time George finally decided to release it on that format, he used it as an excuse to make further changes to the film. The changes to AOTC were done before any video release.
