2019 re-release of the Original Trilogy films on blu ray & DVD (2011 SE version)

 
This repackaging of the 2011 SE version seemed to be a way of getting rid of old stock before the 4K / UHD releases in 2020… (which would feature a new 2019 SE version - first seen unannounced on the Disney+ streaming service, on the 12th November, 2019).
 

22nd September 2019 saw the re-release of the-then eight Main Saga Star Wars films, as well as Rogue One and Solo, on both blu ray and DVD - all were sold individually. There were the first releases of the Original Trilogy and Prequel Trilogy films under Disney - who now own both Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox.
 

The cover art for the Original Trilogy films were as follows:-

 
The official disc art for the Original Trilogy releases:-

 
with matching style artwork covers for The Prequel Trilogy, Rogue One, Solo, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi - as can be seen below (The Rise Of Skywalker would be released in theatres in December of 2019):-

An insightful video review of both the blu ray and DVD releases, by the informative Nathan P. Butler, can be found here:-

The cover art for the above 2019 releases is VERY similar to the later 2020 4K UHD, blu ray and DVD releases. An easy way to spot the difference between the two sets is that the 2020 4K UHD, blu ray and DVD releases have a red band across the bottom of their cover art - with the words ‘Ultimate Collector’s Edition’ across it, as pictured below:-

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
