    If this is authentic (and it does appear to be), then we are in for a real treat. The only feature I don't see mentioned is a definitive documentary on the making of the entire movie. That said, however, these smaller documentaries will no doubt be very interesting.

    Welcome to the HTF in the first place and if this plans out to be the real thing, it will be an awesome DVD set.
    Cheers

    Very cool. The only extra that I really wish was there was either a documentary like "The Beginning" on the TPM Disc, or something on the story/acting aspects. It seems almost completely technical orientated.

    I believe a Beginnings-style documentary has been mentioned by Lucasfilm in the past. I don't automatically buy these scans.

    This will be among my favourites I expect, along with Monsters Inc and LOTR when they come out. I remember reading somewhere reliable that there would be a 1 hour documentary along the lines of The Beginning though.

    I believe it is called "The Middle" and the Bits are reporting that this may not be the final version.

    The name "The Middle" is just something that some uncreative fan came up with and everyone believed him, and I hope that if this set ultimately does have a The Beginning-style documentary, that it is NOT called "The Middle".

    After all, Episode II is not the middle of the saga, Episodes III and IV are!

    I always thought it should be called "The Saga Continues." I'm really glad to see all the trailers and tv spots are on there.

    They aren't. There are 12 TV spots on the official site, and none of them include the "action hero" spot. Also, there was a "critic quote" TV spot. If there are really only 12 included, at least two get dropped. Also, there seems to be no indication that the Choices teaser trailer will be included.

    Really hoping this is a joke. Admittedly, the main reason being because I was hoping for a longer cut.

    Anyway, maybe I'm over-analyzing it, but there do seem to be some weird things here. "Award-winning web docs?" The Episode I web docs won awards, and that fact was noted on the Episode I disc. I've heard nothing about the Episode II web docs winning anything. Also, three theatrical teasers? Only two were released theatrically, with two others initially being available only for owners of the Episode I DVD. One--Mystery--was then released on the web site, but not theatrically.

    There's a chance it could be a joke. It is the internet. [​IMG] Wow, more than I thought. I hope they hide the Yoda spot they showed us in Indianapolis. It was different than the one they showed on tv.

    I would guess its a fake. Something about that Episode II banner above Yoda that just says fake.

    I am buying the disc, but I am not buying this insert is legit.

    I'm saying "fake" right now.
    First off, look around all the letters...it looks like all the text was created elsewhere and was pasted in.
    This is pretty obvious:
    Fake
    • The photo part doesn't mention Italy in it, where I believe some stuff was filmed...
    • That whole trailer section doesn't seem kosher...
    • Web-docs I don't think were award winning
    • Just 8 deleted scenes with only intros? And no input from ILM?
    • No hour long documentary?
    • Just a trailer for beneath the dome? That doesn't make sense
    • "Across the Stars" wasn't just written for the music video, the music video was a compilation of music from the movie, not just that song.
    • They both look folded inward.
    • I can go on and on....

    Wow.

    I don't know whether to believe it or not.

    I sure wanted an hour long documentary though.

    Benjamin, the one-hour documentary IS part of the package. The fact that this insert makes no mention of it is the chief reason to suspect we're in the presence of a fake.

    i think they're fake sumply from the fact that Padme seems almost as tall as Anakin! [​IMG] i mean you'd think they'd shrink her a bit to make the two of them more proportional... also the pic of Padme is probably the most ciruclated fanpic of Portman on the net. that would be a reason for ILM designers ~not~ to use it in packaging.
