Post all your speculation here and not in the 4K restoration thread!

I speculate…I will again have gotten my hopes too high. Signs exist that point towards an OOT announcement (or at least new transfers that aren’t complete sh**), but I just can’t remotely believe any of it right now. I’m refusing to get all excited till then.

But more seriously, I think I’ll be holding back the tears again. I’m taking off work to ensure I can watch Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher live. Over 3 months, and somehow I still don’t know how to accept it. I’m sure they’ll be plenty of laughs though, I really hope the atmosphere during Celebration surrounding her is kept true to her most wonderful sense of humor.

For me, finding out whether or not certain predictions are true or false is all part of the fun.

They’re not going to release a new transfer of the SE on blu unless it’s either a UHD release or it includes a restored OOT.

No one will care if it’s simply a new transfer of the SE on regular blu.

Lucasfilm held back the deleted scenes from the '04 dvd so they would have something to incentivize a rebuy on the next format. I can’t think of anything that big that they can use to sell us the movies yet again, aside from the obvious.

What exactly were the bonus features on the digital release a couple years ago?

We’ll get a special release of the theatrical original trilogy on glorious VHS!

I speculate the other thread was just fine

Seriously, people will bring the main discussion regarding what may or may not be seen at Celebration 2017 here.

No but really. This was unnecessary. We’re going to have two disjointed conversions on the same topic now. Like Frink already said, the 4K thread hasn’t been about the technical details of the hypothetical scan for a long time.

Which people post in very infrequently.

Seeing as how it’s only ten days away, I don’t see the harm in having two threads going. If by some chance there is an announcement there will be a new thread anyway. Either way, this thread will be abandoned in a couple weeks once the convention is over.

They might release a new transfer of the Special Editions, but I don’t think that it would be a big announcement.

So you wanna be a rock ‘n’ roll star?

My predictions:

-40th anniversary Blu-ray/DVD box set from Fox/Disney

-Announcement that the Fox logo and fanfare will be present for I, II, III, V, and VI come 2020.

It would certainly make sense. Release it on regular blu now and then wait until 2020 to put it out on 4k. Would give people a reason to buy it on the new format (the SE in 4k won’t be enough for many fans).

My prediction is that there will be no announcements concerning any Blu-ray release of the OT— OOT, SE, or otherwise.
I’m quite confident (even if I hope I’m wrong).

Maybe they’ll announce a theatrical re-release of ANH for the 40th or something. If that’s the case, my money would be on it just being a new SE transfer.

Jedit: whoops, seems this was already touched on in the 4k thread. Sorry for being redundant.

Don’t say I didn’t warn y’all.

I’m guessing the announcement of the Han Solo movie title and a Last Jedi teaser. Maybe Lucas will make a surprise appearance- in that case no OOT announcement.

It seems like people are really embracing the new characters. In fact, the big question people ask me now about Star Wars is, “Are Finn and Poe gay lovers?” And really how the f*ck would I know? My second husband left me for a man, so my gaydar isn’t exactly what you’d call Death Star level quality. ----Carrie Fisher

Given the slightly scorched earth between Disney and George lately, a Dave Prowse appearance is more likely. 😉

Where were you in '77?
