    Default Has Moonwalker been released uncut on blu-ray?

    I watched Moonwalker the other day and it reminded me how the European Bluray release is cut. Any reference to drugs and the syringe in the scene where MJ turns into a robot are missing in my copy.

    Was it released uncut in any territory on Blu-ray?

    I have the unofficial DVD of “Moonwalker” and it was indeed uncut.

    Just found this on Twitter. DVD and Blu-Ray versions side by side. Doesn’t help with the question, but maybe some haven’t seen the different versions yet.

    I always knew they rerelease on DVD with this scene funny to realize this tweet was post as soon this thread was made. good timing I guess. from watching the scenes, I can understand why they cut it. today if people saw this they would flip. but to me in my opinion maybe it was good to show that so kids know that drugs are bad. it's no differences like the commercials on tv tell people don't drink and drive etc. which is somewhat more info then this.

    shoutout to Michael. these things were and this is a problem today.

    I don't understand it at all. Cheap censoring.

    Stuff has always been censored, like when theatrical movies are shown on regular TV. There is a version of E.T. on DVD where a scene with guns is edited out and changed to walkie talkies. A lot of entertainment made in the past wouldn't fly with today's cancel culture/me too generation. If you watch some older movies and TV shows you'll see there's a lot of smoking, even on talk shows like Johnny Carson & Mike Douglas. There's no smoking on TV talk shows now, and no cigarette commercials. Entertainment changes with society in general.

    The scene where the grandma and her grandkid are reacting to Michael got changed too, when the kid is trying to get Michael's name out but can't say it so the grandma tries to finish it for him. In one version the grandma says "Prince?" and in another she says... some Italian name I can't remember entirely. I forget which one the Bluray has.

    Wow... I didn't notice this either (probably watched the BD only once though). Can anyone imagine why they changed this Prince line? The BD was released almost 6 years before Prince's death.
