Recently revealed via WB's press site. Please do yourself a favor and purchase the blu-ray version of Season 5. DVDs will never do it justice (though I don't see why you'd not want a nice complete boxset with remastered episodes).
I am stoked to see this. I hope we see a preview of how a remastered episode looks. The DVD's for Samurai Jack were plagued by compression artifacts and interlacing, effectively sucking the life out of the artwork.
The only way this boxset could get any better is if they had included a complete soundtrack with it (note apparently Season 5's soundtrack will receive a digital-only release in September, more details as they become available).
¡~Orders are open on Amazon Complete Series (now 16% less at $94.84USD) & Season 5 (US only at this point, but you should be able to ship to your country. Hopefully other regions will follow?)~!
If the remaster was done properly, these should look much closer to the original background paintings.
I've put together a series of comparisons by either piecing together the DVD frames to match the wide/panoramic background paintings, or cropping the paintings to match a single background.
Compare the top (background paintings from Scott Wills' blog, cropped to match the DVD frames) images to the bottom (DVD) images:
The Amazon listing won't allow shipping to the UK?

Remaster VS upscaled DVD
As I've done before, here are comparisons between the press release images and frames from the premiere movie DVD. There is some cropping on the remaster, and I have to assume they had a good reason to do so. Aside from that the details are much better and it seems the colors are either corrected or how they were meant to be seen originally. I hope we get some details on how they remastered these seasons. Can't wait to have the blu-ray set in my hands!
