I think constantly striving to improve on things is great for fans and everyone involved, but at some point you have to stop and smell the roses and recognize just how far watching Star Wars at home has come.

When I was a kid, I had an old 32" CRT connected via RCA plugs to an old boom box with detachable speakers with a VHS I recorded off HBO and in my mind I was ready for Robin Leach to feature me on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. I had it all.

I never dreamed what would be available in the future. Now I have a 65" with HDR and full-array dimming, a 4K player with Dolby Vision, and 5.1 surround sound (working toward Atmos).

To think back at what I used to watch and was so happy with puts it all in perspective. I have my Harmy 1080p discs for when I just don’t want to see the special edition changes, and the new 4K UHD discs for when I want to see the highest resolution and HDR.

Sure, the best would be 4K Harmy with HDR, and maybe we’ll get that next, but in my opinion we’ve come a long way, and things keep getting better. I don’t think the perfect release for all-time is achievable, so I’m just appreciating what I have now while anticipating what might be next.
