Either those bonus discs are going to be a real waste of storage space, or we’re getting a considerable amount of bonus content for the OT and PT that wasn’t on the complete Bluray set, which had just three bonus discs for the six films. The ST stuff will just be the same stuff that came with their recent Bluray releases, I imagine.

kinda mad the standalone 4k release for rise of skywalker doesn’t appear to include a blu-ray bonus disc like the last few films have.

There’s no info about how many discs are included. How do you know?

You may very well be but the site you’re giving your information to stopped being credible (or relevant) about a decade ago.

I have read a couple of people writing this about TDB. Can you explain the reason you feel this way? I’m curious.

A couple? Pretty much no one respects him anymore.

100% of his news is taken from boards. People find pre-orders on Amazon or other sites, post a thread about it and, within 24 hours, his “sources” are telling him said title is being released.

All of his “sources” are long gone. Home Video departments are being scaled down and combined with digital departments.

And he’s kind’ve a dick.

Any updates or links usually appear on there, and there is some pretty insightful ‘OT & the changes’ stuff on there too.

 

I am very much looking forward to seeing his articles on The Digital Bits re the 2019 Disney+ changes.

His Star Wars article is https://thedigitalbits.com/featured/articles/sw-new-hope-disneyplus-4k-2019

Articles for Empire and also Jedi are coming sometime soon 😃

There’s already videos on the changes.

Tbh TDB doesn’t get any credibility from me. Haven’t for probably close to a decade at this point

Well I hope I’m credible.

I don’t have 4K equipment yet, so I’m mostly interested in the special features and if there will be anything new in there. I imagine that I might replace my Blu-ray collection with something like this in a few years, but for now it seems too expensive. Especially considering that you could get almost 4 years of Disney+ for that money, and watch the 4K versions that way.

It also seems weird to put both the 4K and HD versions in the same massive set. If you have a 4K player you don’t need the HD discs and if you don’t have one you’d only want the HD discs. This way it just makes it unnecessarily expensive and probably physically huge as well.

if you don’t care about quality then, sure, you could get 4 years of Disney+.

Remember, you own nothing with Disney+ and you’ll have to subscribe for the rest of your life to get those movies. AND you have to hope they don’t ever remove those particular movies.

I’ll never understand anyone’s interest in something that’s streaming only. That gives the studios the power.

Also, if you look at all 4k releases, they always come with the regular HD versions. Disney never includes any bonus features on the 4k discs, including commentaries. That means that if you want any of that, you have to include the HD disc.

I give this all the likes.

😃 😃 😃 Thank you 😃

Great video! He actually says “despecialized” but also says he can’t get Disney to release the original unaltered versions.

THAT’S TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THAT

EDIT: did the math and it works out to ~$36/movie. Absolutely insane. Short of the OOT, i can’t begin to conceive what kind of special features it would need to have to justify that price.

I’ve got news for you - the Marvel Best Buy exclusive set comes with none. It’s only the 4k discs and it was $550. It’s sold out.
