A New Hope audio corrected?

As the 4K discs have now been released (at least in the United States where I live), and the movies available on Disney+, I had a thought I have not seen addressed yet.

For the dvd release (2004) of A New Hope, I believe the rear channel audio was reversed. Has the audio been corrected for the 4K and Disney+ releases? I have Disney+, but have not yet watched A New Hope, other than to see Greedo exclaim, “Macklunkie!”

May the Force be with you.

Wasn’t it corrected for the Blu-Ray release? I am curious as well and 440 miles away from my discs…

You talking about the 2004 DVD?

I think that was corrected for all home video releases starting with 2011 Blu-ray.

Thank you. I own the original blu-ray releases, but I missed somehow that it had been corrected. Good to know!

Are any specific scenes you can point out that would be make an easy comparison?
