About those labels: 2 options come to mind:

First: might just be done for cast/crew working on the set as parting gift.
Second: might just be done for principal photography.

Take your pic Wink

I'll go for option one...

How would it make sense to use a replica of the old label on a newly designed bottle?

If it ain't broken...but yes, I understand the "New bottle = New label" logic.
But many European products have had the same label for decades (even with new bottle/package designs) Wink Why not this one?

Well it certainly is possible....

I just don't see much of the old school estetics from the original film in the new universe based on the trailers, and the old labels with their old English font and all would look totally out of context.

I guess we'll see....

Just out of curiosity do you have an example of an unchanged European product label?

I just dont see them using the retail label for the film bottle. Could be wrong but its too much of a coincidence that a new label appears on a cart used on the production even
before we knew there was a bottle. It looks like the label on the new bottle is printed on.

Anders, yes speaking of labels that stay the same...Belgian products: Spa (bottled water) Côte d`Or (chocolate), etc...

And Tim; TFS that pic with us. You're right, seems that the label is printed on the bottle directly. So with that new info, I might still go with the "Gift for cast/crew" option and that fancy metal kinda label Wink

Ah yes! Great examples...

Not to get sidetracked, oh perhaps just a bit, sorry in advance, I have a thing for packaging design...

These are two examples of Danish packaging designs that haven't changed for 50 years...

First one "Ga-Jol" are small, salty liquorice drops. You eat them when you have a slight cough, and so their motto goes: "The Danish weather is Ga-Jol weather"...



The other one "Kæmpe Pålæg Chokolade" (Giant Sandwich Chocolate) are thin slices of chocolate you put on toast for breakfast...

Yes, good examples as well Anders (and easy on the Licorice, it decrease Testosterone in the blood and increase the cortisol, which gives you high blood pressure).

As we can see, on the bottle, the label's background has changed, but the figure of the gentleman in top hat is there, as well as the unchanged fonts.
