Star Wars Episode I, DVD, Bootleg Laserdisc version, China 2000

This disc is a rip of the US laserdisc. The transfer has been very poorly done. retaining none of the superior image characteristics of the source laserdisc. The audio reads as Dolby Digital 5.1, but I can't confirm it is a bit-for-bit copy of the laserdisc's AC-3 track. The VOBs are dated 2000.

The burnt-in Japanese subtitles of the laserdisc have been retained, joined here by chinese subs on the top of the image.

The main menu (see image below) plays a cute MIDI version of the Star Wars theme.

The cover refers to the film as Episode "L". When automatic Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software is used, the roman numeral "I" is often misinterpreted as an "L".
Like other Chinese bootlegs I've seen, this also has an ISRC (International Standard Recording Code) number, which is the international identification system for sound recordings and music video recordings. I'm sure it's meant to lend an air of authenicity to the release.
