Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection (2019) vs. Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection SteelBook (2018)

The Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection on 4k Blu-ray releases to stores on Sept. 10 but many are asking what this collection has that the Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection released a year ago doesn’t have. Let’s take a look at the differences between the two and why you might consider buying the 2019 edition.

New packaging. Last year’s Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection was a Limited Edition SteelBook that wasn’t exclusive to Best Buy or any other retailers. The SteelBooks are pretty much only available now from 3rd parties on Amazon or eBay. The new Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection is standard plastic case collection with slipcover.

There’s new artwork. The new Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection features the famous Jurassic Park logo embedded in hot lava. The more generic cover isn’t quite as cool as the SteelBook artwork that featured the Velociraptor named “Blue,” but nevertheless is distinctly Jurassic Park.

10 discs versus 6. The new Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection on Ultra HD Blu-ray also includes Blu-ray copies of each film. The SteelBook edition did not. This makes it more practical for those of you who still have Blu-ray players around the house or want to share the discs with friends. (But it also means more extras. Read on.)

As far as extras it looks like the new 5-Movie Collection includes twice the amount of bonus material as the SteelBook given the 10-disc capacity of this collection. The new collection has the all the extras spread out to each Blu-ray Disc, while the SteelBook crammed bonus content for the last two films on the UHD BDs. (See all extras below.)


Differences in proprietary technology logos. The new edition shows Dolby Vision on the back slipcover, whereas the SteelBook edition did not (it only mentioned HDR10). Keep in mind the last two movies: Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom offered Dolby Vision on the 4k Blu-rays, while the older films used HDR10. Each disc likely includes the same HDR as the original UHD BD releases.

The new collection does not show the D-Box Motion Code either — the home entertainment technology that can communicate with D-BOX motion enabled chairs. However, even though the logo was removed from the slipcover it may not mean the codes were stripped out.

What stays the same? Disc specs. The 4k Blu-rays feature 2160p resolution at various aspect ratios (depending on the film). And, each of the films uses either Dolby Vision or HDR10. Audio is provided in DTS:X at best or DTS-HD Master Audio. And, like the SteelBook edition there are digital copies to redeem with Movies Anywhere partners in Digital UHD where available.

The Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection (Release Date: Sept. 10, 2019) is available to order from Amazon for $68.66 (List: $74.98).
