3D Star Wars Ep. I - Were There Changes?

Star Wars: The Complete Blu-Ray
Did you buy this? Get ready for the newest version of Star Wars to be released to disc.
After seeing the new "3D edition" of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, the guys and I were sitting around in a coffee shop talking about it. Were there any changes (other than the obvious conversion to 3D)? All of us are fairly well versed in Star Wars lore and we all agreed that we thought there were.

First of all, it should be said that the 3D movie contains all of the changes that were made on the Blu Ray editions - the digital Yoda, etc. In addition to the newest version, we specifically thought that there may have been foreground/background elements added to give the feeling of depth. But it's actually hard to tell without seeing the versions side-by-side. Is it an actual change or does having it in 3D simply change your perceptions, drawing your eye to elements it otherwise didn't notice?

Either way, I'm sure that the 3D versions of the films will be released on Blu Ray, making the versions that were just released outdated. Again.


  1. He changed the voice actor used for the English-speaking Pod Race commentator. It used to be Greg Proops, and now it obviously isn't.

  2. Interesting... so was this a change from the Blu Ray version?
