The blurb for each release…

 

Ewoks: Caravan of Courage

Ewoks: The Battle for Endor

Marauders raid the Ewok village and steal a power supply they believe to be magical. Wicket helps Cindel escape the evil witch Charal, and they befriend a hermit who may help them save the village.

 

Star Wars: Clone Wars – Micro-Series

Feel your heart race and your pulse pound as every Chapter of this Emmy® Award-winning animated series envisions the story arc between Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Packed with action, this landmark “micro-series” is essential viewing for all fans of the Force!

 

Star Wars: Ewoks (both seasons 1 & 2)

Journey to the Forest Moon of Endor for an out-of-this world visit with your favorite, furry Star Wars heroes – the small-but-mighty Ewoks – in their own action-packed, animated series! Join Wicket, his friends Princess Kneesaa, Teebo, & Latara, and their entire tribe, as they experience fantastical adventures in Bright Tree Village.

 

The Story of the Faithful Wookiee (animated short from the 1978 Holiday Special)

After Luke Skywalker and Han Solo succumb to a suspicious sleeping virus, Chewbacca hunts a cure with help from an unlikely ally – the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Chewie’s Wookiee instincts warn him that all is not what it seems. This rare animated short features the voices of the original Star Wars cast.

 
 

 

Jedit: ‘In addition, the Star Wars: Droids animated series is slated to join the Star Wars Vintage Collection later this year.’

There just seems to be something still missing… not just Droids, Detours or the full version of the 1978 Holiday Special

The “Vintage” section sure seems like a perfect place for them to eventually release the unaltered originals. I know that wouldn’t be the ideal scenario for many reasons, but certainly better than nothing.

These shows are either region locked or given different release dates for different locations, because I just checked my D+ account in Norway and I couldn’t find any of them.

BTW, has anyone looked at The Story of the Faithful Wookiee? I’m curious about which version it is. Is it the “normal version” that’s been on YouTube for a while now or the slightly extended version with the fake alien commercial breaks?

No alien commercial breaks for me. Must be the normal version.

I was chatting with a guy in Denmark earlier, who says the vintage collection isn’t showing up for him either. Hope you guys get it soon.

It’s worth remembering that the 2019 D+ versions showed up there mere months before hitting physical UHD just over a year ago (they ditched Dolby Vision on the actual discs, but whatever).

So, a new transfer of the films hitting D+ ahead of a physical release wouldn’t entirely be without precedent.

I know The Bad Batch is already planned for May 4th, but I wonder if they will surprise us with anything else for Star Wars Day?

Still no Vintage Collection available in Norway (and presumably the rest of Scandinavia as well). Today seemed like an obvious time to release it, but it seems to just be the same as the US got, so at least the Bad Batch wasn’t postponed like The Mandalorian and TCW season 7 was, but it is quite frustrating how hard it is to get any proper news on this.

That is shite form from Disney.

Especially given they have inferred the ‘Vintage Collection’ (and other releases) will be available to anyone with Disney+ - with no mention of geographical differences etc.

That they have many social media accounts for ‘Disney+’ and they could very easily let fans from each country know what content is available or not - or when it will become available - is poor too.
 

I take it they do not reply to any queries from fans on the subject on the Disney+ twitter?
 

Edit: It may be worth trying this - https://help.disneyplus.com - to see if you guys can get an answer?

(there is a ‘live chat’ option at the bottom of the page - along with a ‘Call Us’ option too - hopefully it is a free phone call?)

I saw a post though somewhat off topic but someone saying something about a new color grading of TROS on D+ and I thought ok Im sure, but turns out to be right. Could this be a new 4k master coming eventually is physical? Kinda a similar situation with TLJ getting a imo “so call new 4k transfer” which let me explain. Rise Of Skywalker and TLJ 4k’s are the only one that haven’t had the black boarders cover art change as of yet at least in the US, though the slipcover for TLJ has that new cover. Also the Dolby Vison 4k is still available in those edition where the best buy boxset is updated with the just the HDR transfer for TLJ. Is Disney gonna more then likely use TROS new transfer to be release with that? Just a thought that came to mind when thinking about this news. I haven’t sat down to watch this update change but I might, I can’t really judge yet. What do you think and have you seen or notice it beforehand? https://www.resetera.com/threads/did-you-know-the-disney-version-of-star-wars-episode-9-rise-of-the-skywalker-has-had-its-color-grading-and-subtitles-fixed.430304/index.php?pages/faq/

All my life as I looked away to the future, to the horizon. Never in my mind did I know where I was, what I was doing.

I heard about the new TROS upload too, and saw a collage someone made comparing old and new frames (where there was SOME difference) but it’s much harder to me to spot by comparing my old screenshots from TROS with new ones. I don’t think the difference is drastic enough for a rewatch of the entire film, to be honest, but it is slightly better.

From the official site: Everything Star Wars on Disney+

May not be up to date, but what’s interesting is that (at least on iPad) each link on that page opens directly in the Disney+ app. A quick way to access Star Wars content on Disney+, and to check availability in your country. (to my disappointment, I found that none of the Vintage Collection is available in France)

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?!
