And thanks for a comparison. It’s enlightening. I may find myself switching discs to try to compare, but that will probably be an exercise in futility.
Is it odd that they would use the same master but tinker with the colours?
I’m personally a bit annoyed. The Disney Movie Club got me my copy a day early, so when I got home from work last night I tore open the parcel and — they accidentally sent the BD instead of the UHD. It’s going back to them today or tomorrow.
Not only the colors, there are many changes from the Diamond Edition, the grain has been completely removed in this new version and the picture frame is a little bit more opened now. They also corrected film “mistakes” like the Grimsby hand over Carlotta, the torn background in the “Ursula’s Defeat” scene, and as you already said, the colors are different, they are darker but more saturated and sometimes more “artificial”. It’s not a bad edition, but definitely not a good PRESERVATION of the original film.
