Alert Janeite Mrs. Mish reports that Amazon UK is listing a new “Special Edition” of P&P1995 (Region 2) to be released on March 16. We swear when we first looked at the listing it said somewhere on it that the film had been remastered, but it’s nowhere to be seen in the listing now. With the new listing, it’s hard to tell if this is the same as the old “special edition” or a newly-remastered version. It remains to be seen. If it is remastered, a lot of people who were disappointed with the washed-out colors on the DVDs so far will be made quite happy!
In the U.S., the Blu-Ray DVD (Region 1) of the series, which has been remastered, will be released on April 16. One of the bonus features is “a fascinating short film about the technical restoration process” so it’s definitely been remastered.
