Should I watch the prequels on DVD or Disney+?

The DVDs are closer to the original versions of the movies but the Disney+ version is much higher quality. What to watch?

I would go with Disney+. The only major difference you’ll notice in TPM is the digital yoda, and the other two films are nearly identical to the DVD releases.

I’m probably in a minority of one in preferring Creepy Puppet Yoda to the digital version.

AOTC also has some weird monkeying around with the order of some shots in a couple of scenes - oddly enough, both have to do with flying vehicles.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

You probably just shouldn’t watch em at all.
Easy fix.

Or maybe you could actually be helpful instead of using this thread as an excuse to hate on the prequels.
Even easier fix.

Back on topic though, I think Disney+ is the best way to watch the prequels. The colors are much better than on the DVDs, and it’s in much higher quality than DVD could possibly manage.

Was Ray not just joking around? A bit of dry humour.

 

Disney+ versions for me, OP. Though as stated above have a look schorman’s project and a few of the other Prequel projects on here too 😃

There is a pretty fine range of Prequel fanedits on here you may want to watch instead? 😉

Though if keeping it ‘official’, go for the DVDs…

(I have no idea why, maybe it is because I can’t remember the last time I actually played a DVD disc on a standalone DVD player? 😃)

50 Cent is just an imposter

I would actually recommend the DVD version here. The prequels were extremely heavy on special effects, and they pioneered a lot of techniques that were ahead of their time. For instance, Marvel’s entire production is basically what they did for the prequels. However, being products of 1999-2005, the special effects do not hold up and they’re actively distracting. I think a lower resolution video stream can help paper over this.
