This is a comparison between the censored TV Version (UK Blu-ray, identical to the US premier on NBC at 06/11/2015) and the uncensored Producer's Cut (US Blu-ray by Lionsgate)
- 1 difference
- no length difference
Just like the 2 previous season of the cancelled show Hannibal, there are several episodes that required some alterations for US TV (which are also the versions sold to other countries). While there was a bare-bones UK release containing the TV Version several months ago, the US Blu-ray contains 7 episodes marked as "Producer's Cut". And contrary to the UK release, the US Blu-ray contains a lot of bonus features.
Episode 9 ("...And the Woman Clothed with the Sun") is a curious case: A first comparison between the British Blu-ray - which usually includes the TV Versions - icluded no differences. When we came across a recording of the very first broadcast from Canada, it became clear why the episode is rightfully called "Producer's Cut" on the US-Blu-ray. As for the previous two epsiodes, there was another censorship to a naked butt. This time, it is the bloodbesmeared Will, while he undergoes a vision. It is rather curious, that the episode is uncensored on the UK Blu-ray as well. Apparently, the creators made a mistake regarding the ridiculously small difference.
After the camera panned around Will during his vision, he looks upwards. During the first broadcast, his butt was darkened.
Unlike the rest of the episodes, "...And the Woman Clothed with the Sun" is included in its uncensored form on the UK-Blu-ray.
