Does anybody think that Disney are waiting to release the original versions in 4k, after 2020 when 20th Century Fox loose the distribution rights? even though I understand that 20th Century Fox will still have the distribution rights for Episode IV indefinitely.

So are the rumours of ‘Reliance Media Works’ doing a 4K version factual?

Out of interest what would everybody like to view regarding the original versions (if they exist?).

  1. The originals exactly as they were released.
  2. The originals but with all the original special effects corrected such as matting edges etc?

The answer is, and has always been, no.

Read this random bump and for a second thought this definitive answer was in response to an official release announcement. 😦

Meanwhile, our likely best hope of a professionally done restoration for a 4K theatrical version of the Original Trilogy probably lies here - with poita’s superb The Original Trilogy restored from 35mm prints ongoing project.

Solely as a member here, I’d recommend anyone & everyone to have a look through the above thread, and if anyone feels like doing so, make a donation (no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’) - to contribute to help bring about something that many of us here, if not near-on all of us on this site, want to see come to fruition.
