The Phantom Menace - anyone want to chat about TPM?
Time

I know. That’s why I said “almost”. But, most of the visual effects were CGI except mainly the spaceship/control station scenes. The spaceship from the negotiations scene was defiantly an old school model explosion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd6sbCi4qgA). As was the scene near the end when Anakin Skywalker blew up the Control Ship and Yoda (before the release of the DVD) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFcWCpxynuA) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uz8RgJ_9lwc). Also, the DVD releases for TPM aren’t particularly that bad compared to other home video releases. It’s much better then the VCD and possibly better then the VHS in some aspects. Though, the Laserdisc release will always be the better way to watch the original theatrical version of TPM.

Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace DVD cover Hong Kong
Time

Hi all,
I was just wondering if anyone knew what the cover was for the Hong Kong release of The Phantom Menace on DVD. Because I want to by the Hong Kong version of The Phantom Menace on VCD and when I found it on a website, it states that it is a DVD and it looks just like the VCD cover. If so, the website I found it on, doesn’t provide any photos for the inside or back so I’m unable to identify it. Unless Hong Kong doesn’t have a DVD release? But I don’t know. Please help!

Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace VCD release/Laserdisc release
Time

Great, Thanks. I’ve red that apparently, that the Hong Kong of The Phantom Menace was an official release. I’m unaware if the legitimacy is mentioned by Nathan Butler but above, you mentioned that IIRC and TPM were official releases for VCD. The Hong Kong version of The Phantom Menace was distributed Deltamac? Is that official?

Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace VCD release/Laserdisc release
Time

Hi all,
In 2000 Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace was official released on home video. For a couple of weeks now, I’ve documenting all the releases for The Phantom Menace. This is what have so far:

-Laserdisc
-Year:2000
-Country:Japan
-Format:Widescreen

-DVD
-Year:2001
-Country:Worldwide?
-Format:Fullscreen and widescreen

-VHS
-Year:1999
-Country:Worldwide?
-Format:Fullscreen and Widescreen(Collector’s Edition)

Just a few days ago, I found out that in most regions of Asia and possibly Europe, there was a VCD release of The Phantom Menace. I already know that Hong Kong, Malaysia, and maybe Singapore and Turkey, had releases for The Phantom Menace. Now, I have several questions to ask about this as I have heard about many and all were different.

Q1: Was the VCD release of The Phantom Menace a bootleg, or an official release?
Q2: What other countries had the VCD release of The Phantom Menace.
Q3: I saw on a website that the Hong Kong release of The Phantom Menace on VCD came with 4 lobby cards
(similar to the Japan Laserdisc) but slightly different. Is this true and if so, did other country
releases have the same offer?
Q4: Apart from Ebay or Amazon, is there a website that sells VCDs. Like the Laserdisc database website but
for VCDs?
Q5: I’ve also red that The Phantom Menace was released on SVCD. What is it, was it released on SVCD, and
where can you buy it?
Q6: Is there a designated box for The Phantom Menace VCD? I’ve seen several online and none come with a
box/case.
Q7: Is there a particular way to identify which country it comes from?
Q8: Is it in Widescreen or Fullscreen?

Please let me know ASAP and if there is additional information that I have not mentioned, feel free to type in the chat below.

Star Wars Soundtrack for Episode IV - VI CD
Time

In 1983, Star Wars and Return of the Jedi soundtracks were released on CD. There was a German release distributed by RSO of Star Wars and Return of the Jedi with a red disc (Red Label). However, The Empire Strikes Back has no Red Disc. I may be mistaken but does anyone know if there is one? As I’m collecting the Red Labels soundtracks for Star Wars.

Star Wars vs. A New Hope - Which do you say and why?
Time

So yesterday, I watched the 2006 Star Wars DVD release. Included was “supposedly” the original version of the film. However,I noticed that the human version of Jabba the Hutt was not included. Now was this scene included in the original release of the film or it was cut which explains why it isn’t there? This has really bugged me. Do you any of you know the answer?
