If the UK disc is actually the real Special Edition disc, I doubt it very much that it's a new scan. It looks like the old master was used and re-timed/cropped to breath new life into it. I really haven't seen anything to indicate otherwise. Both shots contain identical detail, with the only difference being that the "new" version looks sharper due to the contrast boosting (boosted highlights + crushed black levels = higher perceived detail).
