That's what I'm looking for now. There's gotta be some kind of extras. I would truly hope so.

Appears that the old features from the previous DVD's will be transferred over to this edition. That's about it. I hope that I'm wrong though.

Here's the article with specifics about the release at Blu-ray.com:

.

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=19580

.

If these specs are correct, then (in my opinion) Warner is screwing up by not including the music videos with the Under The Cherry Moon and Graffiti Bridge discs. The videos were included on the prior DVD releases of both films. We should petition WB to include the videos on the Blu-rays, if it isn't too late.

Why wouldn't they make a release with all 4 films??

Not really .I own both the bluray and dvd for purple rain.there's not much of a difference at all. Most old films dont differ from quality when transfered from DVD to bluray even though they claim its "remastered ". I'll have to pass on this one.

Looks like a repackage of the set I have - WB triple Feature Y17888, with all 3 movies and a blurb on back explaining the 3. The hype for Graffiti Bridge us hilarious, trying to find positive stuff to say. My comments are in brackets. The set is dated 2007.

.

"It's got that Purple Rain feeling through and through (No it hasn't). And its got the Kid too (Whoopty Doo!)! For the first time since Purple Rain, Prince is back as the Kid (Well he was Christopher Tracy, Joey Coco, Jamie Starr, Alexander Nevermind and a bunch of other weird names too). And where he goes, theres music (Not always a good thing)! With Thieves in the Temple, New Power Generation, Elephants and Flowers (What about The Question of U, Still owuld stand all time and Joy in Repetition? - I mean has this writer even listened to the album?) and more red hot Prince tunes from the Platinum-selling Graffiti Bridge Soundtrack (Usually he sells mega platinum, but this album was a complete dog). What time is it? Party Time! Morris Day and the Time play Release It, Shake and More. And you'll see and hear George Clinton, Tevin Campbell, Robin Power (Just a huge star), Mavis Staples and other hot performers too (Who?, the only hot part of the movie is when Glam Slam burns down). Graffiti Bridge is where the movie meets the music (Because it is just an overblown music video). Cross over on it now! (Umm no!)"

.

Comments should be "Prince limps into the barn with this desparate, trend chasing hot mess, complete with larded down songs, flimsy plot lines and the most ham acting you will see this side of Howard the Duck".

.

I also have the Purple Rain 20th anniversary set with a 2nd disc that has the videos for all groups except Modernaires, a MTV premiere party and a couple of other featurettes about PR's impact.

.

Need to update my SOTT as it is the mid 90s Dutch version (Disky) unremastered - still decent though, the show is incredible even if it is 99% Paisley Park soundstage.

.

Rave un2 the year 2000, well it is dreadful but has moments, the rest of my movies and concerts are boots.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

Hmmm this looks really tempting but I already have Purple Rain. I only need Under The Cherry Moon and Graffiti Bridge next. The cover looks so irresistible though! Dang Prince why do you have to be so gorgeous!? drooling

Can somebody explain the backgrounds from this release?

Someone mentions 2007.

So why does this come out now?

Is there involvement from the estate?

Or can this be done without their involvement?

Or was this arranged prior to his death?

Any relation to the PR remaster deal?

According to the specs they will be 'new 2016 1080p HD master'.

Purple Rain comes with 8 music videos (Let's Go Crazy, Take Me With U, When Doves Cry, I Would Die 4 U/Baby I'm a Star, Purple Rain, Jungle Love, The Bird and Sex Shooter)

All 3 movies come with original trailers.

Oh for crying out loud, pure on a technical level Blu-ray is waaaay better than DVD: a larger color spectrum, proper speed, etc.

.

Also, these appear to be new masters, so unless you're a time traveler, you haven't even seen the new encode of Purple Rain -- so how would you know this one isn't better?

.

Most old films dont differ from quality when transfered from DVD to bluray

Utter nonsense. First of all they aren't "transfered from DVD to Blu-ray", the BD encode is made on the basis of a high-def master that in most cases didn't exist for the DVD. There are plenty of cases where there are stunning BD editions. Ever heard of Criterion?

Same shit on my 2007 set, movies, vids for Purple Rain and the promos, along with long and short tv ads for the movies.

Indeed. Most of my DVDs became obsolete the moment I watched a Blu Ray. There is a whole world of difference between 480p and 1080p on a decent TV. A whole world. Getting Under The Cherry Moon on Blu Ray for the first time is a big deal.
