This is a very great DVD, but it could have been better... Here's why:
1. The transfer has EE. This should not be allowed, and it's beyond me why a digital transfer wasn't used...
(Perhaps there have to be room for improvement for the next release?)

2. There's episode 2 footage found on VHS, which is not on this DVD!!! tsk-tsk-tsk...
3. THE CASE SUCKS!!! this is the most flimsy and ineffective type of double case, why has Fox gone away from the ALPHA???
Aside from this, it's a nice DVD!
Keep up the good work Fox and Lucasfilm!

Rest assured, the movie was digitally mastered (hence the THX certification.)
As far as I know, there are no THX DVD's that use analog transfers.

P.S.: There's no P.S.

What he's referring to is the ACTUAL digital master for TPM, used for the digital theatrical projections. The DVD was sourced from a 35mm film print at the request of George Lucas, who feels that digital transfers are great for CG-only films, but that he preferrs a movie shot on film to be film-based. Now Episode 2 will probably be transferred digitally
