March 31st 2020, Disney released episodes I-VII and Rogue One on 4k for the first time with matching slipcovers, interior covers, updated discs, and updated content that look like this:
Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace:
Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones:
Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith:
Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi:
Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens:
Rogue One - A Star Wars Story:
During this time, we also see TROS seek a 4k release but without a matching slipcover/interior cover (Discs and content are the same as the Skywalker Saga set).
Star Wars Episode IX - The Rise Of Skywalker:
Prior to March 31st 2020, The Last Jedi and Solo already had a 4k release.
Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi:
Solo - A Star Wars Story:
A few months after the 4k debuts of episodes I-VII and Rogue One, we see a re-issue of TLJ and Solo matching the other movies except TROS.
Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi - re-issue:
Solo - A Star Wars Story - re-issue:
You’d expect that they’ve also changed the interior cover as well as the updating the content/discs that is currently only available in the complete Skywalker Saga Box set (Excluding Solo because there has only been one release for Solo, hence there cannot be updated content, only interior covers and updated disc label to differentiate the previous release). Wrong! Instead, they’ve slapped the matching cover on the original 4k releases of both films. No matching interior cover, no updated discs, and no updated content. Just the same old stock we saw before. At some point, would there be a matching (slipcover/interior cover/updated content/updated disc) copy of both the TLJ and Solo?
TROS is yet to recieve the same treatment as the other movies and would there also be a matching copy to complete the set at some point in time?
