Nevermind... just (re)discovered that HDTV has a different frame size than BD... actually, Disney Channel broadcast used the BD master, just cropped on both side...

Yet to find out EP2 and EP3 open matte - if they exist, and they should...

I remember seeing II on TNT a few years ago and looked like a mix of slightly opened up shots and completely zoomed in ones.

AFAIK yes!

Proofs: EP III - top BD, bottom extended scenes from BD

it will be great to get those HDTV recordings!

I just watched the first hour of an EP III HDTV recording in 16:9 and I could not find any open matte shots.
Those two shots in particular were cropped.

I also have an EP II recording that I will try to validate soon.  If anyone knows any specific shots that might be opened that would greatly help.

Thanks for checking this, and also EP II!

Apart full open matte - like in the screenshots taken from the BD extended scenes - there is a small chance that the cropped HDTV version has a bit more lines on top and bottom...

I quickly went trough a bunch of random shots from my recording of EP II and I could not find any open matte ones, not even by a few lines.

For reference, these are the new 2015 versions without the 20th Century Fox Fanfare. Maybe an older 16:9 version was opened.

I can say for sure the fullscreen prequel DVD's don't have the mattes opened up. I would think it would have cost more to render FX for stuff that was going to be cropped anyway.


I have the open matte Laserdisc of Phantasm II if there's any interest in that.
