Star Wars Blu-ray report: Cropping, sound, extras and… The Holiday Special?

The HDRoom’s Dan Bradley was another tech-oriented journalist invited to Lucasfilm’s Blu-ray junket. The first part of his report covers a few basics we’ve heard about from the other sites and Lucasfilm themselves. Part two focuses on Matthew Wood and sound mixing. And part 3 takes on, of course, the deleted scenes, special features and Dennis Muren.

Here’s one interesting bit:

In response to my question, Kayleen answered “You’ll have to wait and see! The Holiday Special is a challenge, but look for some Easter Eggs. What’s a Star Wars release without a couple of Easter Eggs?” I read into that as something pertaining to, if not the entire Holiday Special is hidden on these discs. These Easter Eggs are also what LucasFilm is referring to when stating the leaked bonus features are “incomplete.”

An additional Blu-ray inner sleeve depicts a scene from Droids, the animated cartoon revolving around the further adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Does that mean an episode of Droids or maybe something from the Ewoks television show is hidden as an Easter Egg? We’ll have to wait and find out on September 16, 2011.

I’ve always thought that the Holiday Special – or the less tedious bits of it, anyway – would make an excellent Easter Egg.

    I simply won’t be satisfied until the “Frizzies at 11″ guy gets his own commentary track.

    The Boba Fett Introduction cartoon from the Holiday Special is on Extras Disk 2. Empire sections, collection, Boba’s chest armor. A choice on the right side of the screen offers the choice of “First Look”. The entire cartoon short plays. Made me smile. :)
