I could see it happening, but only for the original trilogy.
Fact: Disney has a massive star wars archive that could result in newer and spectacular extras for a set.
Fact: Disney (hopefully) understands that a next physical release has to really stand out from the previous LAZY/Little to no effort releases from 2019, most of which they did not do any work on, but rather another company.
Fact: Criterion has the staffing, manpower, and motivation to do outstanding work.
Theory/Question: I could see Disney doing this solely on the basis that they don’t have the time or inclination to play around with or dig through the massive amounts of film, video, audio snippets, photo prints etc. that are laying around in the “archives”. Someone in Disney must surely be weighing out that a substandard release would cost them more in the long run as opposed to licensing the trilogy out to a company that would make such an awesome release that it would sell enough copies to make a quick buck for the Big D.
The 2019 sets sold decently, but probably not as well as they projected, which is why they also optioned it for their streaming service.
Putting out another set of the OT would have to be done wisely. The market is saturated with this product already, so it would make sense to do something extraordinary for the next release.
Also…I am sure they are very aware of the 4k projects here. At some point they need to reach out to this niche market. It literally is the bottom of the pot for Disney, so I could see them licensing the work out to criterion, and selling a limited amount of sets before taking criterion’s work and selling them later down the line for themselves.
whew! ok that is all I got. Sorry for the long-windiness.
