three of which I can handle like my existing official Blu-rays: glue them all together, put a string through the middle, and suspend them inside one of the cavities in the walls of my house, so nobody accidentally watches them or stumbles across them and thinks that I like those films enough to buy them

This is really funny.

Why don't people hate the Palpatine re-casting in ESB yet despise Force ghost Anakin's re-casting in RotJ?
Time

I hate both. But I hate Hayden in ROTJ more. TBH any prequel invasion into the OT pisses me off the most.

I’ll take Han shooting first long before the Jango Fett Kiwi accent in TESB for Boba Fett. I’ll take all the CGI in ANH long before the lone CGI Dugg in Jabba’s palace.

I grew up with the OUT on VHS and saw the SEs in the cinemas as a teenager. I felt most of the additions were meh. It wasn’t until the 2004 versions were released that my venom for the SEs came about and it was mainly due to the prequel invasions in the films.

[Official] All Star Wars films released in 4K HDR on Disney Plus: 4KSE with more changes

I would suggest a brief pause to get ahold of the better-compressed source.

Actually this is pretty good timing as we will have LUTs ready and tested to correct the OT colors. Which will mean we can release corrected versions within days of the commercial release in 4k and hopefully in HDR.

Unless they change the color timing between now and then…

Is this an issue caused by HDR being played on an 8 bit display? When I play any HDR Bluray on a non HDR display then the picture looks grey and dull.

Please note that my country doesn’t have Disney plus yet so I’m just going off the conversations here.

EDIT: No, on closer inspection of these screencaps, the picture is just coloured so it looks dull. Not an issue with HDR.

Yeah I was disappointed to see that also.

Still waiting for details on this latest batch of Blu-rays Disney is releasing in September. I am hopeful that they will be struck from the new master and not just repackaged 2011 versions.

If that fails we just have to wait until November for Disney+, then at least it should be the new masters albeit special editions.
