The Phantom Menace DVD vs BLURAY DVD
Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace
(IMDB) OT: Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Just as for all the other Star Wars movies, Episode I: The Phantom Menace was also changed for its Blu-Ray release (the DVD version is already different from the theatrical version).
This time there are no new scenes, but there are a few digital alterations – the biggest one is a digital Yoda who replaces the original puppet (which was actually a fan favorite).
In terms of technical quality, the Blu-Ray is very much superior to the DVD and fixed some technical flaws (such as the reduced image section or the ugly pink color of the DVD version). Overall, the film benefits from being able to show more details. Still, the Blu-Ray version is far away from being perfect – the image is a little too “smooth” and it happens too often that details are swallowed up by digital alterations.
