I still just stick with the GOUT. It’s sad, but it’s done me well enough for the past 13 years.

Now that I have a nice sized TV, the GOUT is fine for me as well.

I’m still surprised by how little info there’s been regarding it’s Nordic launch. The first solid info I’ve heard was released just a few hours ago and it simply stated that it will launch “summer of 2020.”

Pretty much everywhere in Europe I think.

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

I confirm that, as I was checking out yesterday if this was indeed the 19SE. But first the colors looked horribly like the 2004/2011 version and no Maclunkey! Just Han and Greedo shooting at the same time…

^ Wow.

If so, I wonder if Disney+ in other countries are still showing the old 2011 Special Editions of the Original Trilogy too?

All those different versions of the films must be confusing for Disney too! 😉

Is the French Disney+ advertising the films as being in 4K?
 

(I was just wondering - maybe they don’t know / confused as to which version they are meant to be showing?)

4K isn’t activated yet on Disney+ in France to avoid saturating the network while everyone is still in lockdown and furiously consuming video over the internet.

^ That is a bonus, and certainly cheapr than splashing out for the 4K Saga set or 4K discs individually. Money is tight right now, so a nice moved by Disney bringing TROS forward. Plus all the other Star Wars stuff on there too.

I’d prefer to physcially own it all rather than stream, but given the cost difference…

 

I don’t like their (Disney, not DisneyPlus) ‘taking over’ of the ‘MayThe4th’ hashtag twitter thing (If I understand it correctly, and I probably don’t! 😃

’Disney+ adds lost Luke Skywalker scene to Star Wars: A New Hope’ (only to the extras, but still):

https://www.nme.com/news/film/disney-adds-lost-luke-skywalker-scene-to-star-wars-a-new-hope-2698578 (with video)

'A deleted scene from Star Wars: A New Hope has been retrieved and added to the extras on Disney+.

Mark Hamill has explained why the deleted scene was crucial to the character of Luke Skywalker, in conversation with Joe and Anthony Russo for their Russo Bros. Pizza Film School series.’
 

I hope Mark Hamill explains why the scenes cut from the unaltered theatrical version of the OT to make way for Special Edition changes are important too - and gets them cleaned up and added as well 😉
