Thoughts on the color schemes for the widescreen and pan & scan packaging for pre-Blu-Ray-release DVD packaging

Author

  • For the prequels and the individual OT releases, both widescreen and pan & scan used gold spine text and logos, but widescreen used gold bars on top and bottom of the front covers while pan & scan used blue bars on top and bottom of the front covers

  • For trilogy OT box sets, everything is silver for the widescreen versions and everything is gold for the pan & scan packaging. This color scheme is also used for the 1997 trilogy box set VHS packaging.

Any feelings on this?

What sort of feelings should we be searching for, darklordoftech? 😉

What do you think of the colour choices made for those releases?

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

Confusingly I think the gold and silver 2004 boxes were both widescreen here, but one was a retailer exclusive.

Incorrect.

The gold/silver boxes carried over the scheme from the 97SE VHS boxsets.

At least the blue P/S dvds are easy to tell apart from the widescreen gold copies.
