With 20th century almost in Disney’s grasp what are the odds of an OUT release?

I think the odds are slightly better than they were 10-20 years ago but I also think that KK will need to go if things are to succeed. If you think differently please do tell me.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

Why do you think Kathy is the barrier to the OUT being released?

Because of the interview that had occurred two years ago.

That interview was handled horribly. The interviewer asked a shit question, and she answered like she barely knew what he was asking. If anything, the interview merely indicates that LF will not tinker with the SEs. That does not mean that they wouldn’t issue the OUT.

Any legal barrier that was in their way is now gone, or at least it will be once the deal is officially finalized.

The time will eventually come to put out I-VI (and TFA and Rogue One) on 4k UHD. Whenever that ends up happening will be our earliest chance at seeing a restored OOT. If they were going to double/triple-dip the 2011 discs by including a 1080p OOT (like they did with the ‘04 dvd by including the GOUT), they would’ve done it by now.

Of course, now that the Fox buyout is on the way to being finalized I suppose anything’s possible. Maybe they’ll finally restore the OOT in 4k and just put it out on regular 1080p blu, maybe with a remastered SE to go along with it. But when the time comes for the OT on UHD you can bet they’ll include the unaltereds in all their glory.

Being able to watch the SE in 4k hdr, now with a fourth round of changes, just isn’t going to be much of a selling point for a sizable percentage of the fans.

If they’re going to do it, it will be for the UHD release. If it doesn’t happen then, it won’t happen for the foreseeable future.

If they don’t do it for 4K, that would be the final middle finger from Lucasfilm as far as I’m concerned.

No that happened in 2006 and 2011

I don’t think we’ll see it until after George is gone. I get the impression that it is largely out of respect that they haven’t done anything with it. Whether you agree with it being released or not I think it’s pretty obvious that releasing it would be a pretty big F U to George from Lucasfilm considering how adamant he was about it not being made available.

Respect didn’t keep them from giving a big FU to his ST story treatments.

Arrivederci.

Please don’t go sexual. I’m trying to encourage intelligence from you not get you to hide from it. Go make a thread where you can be gross away from the discussion threads.

Agree to disagree and all that. I think George has nothing to do with it. After all, the debate over the changes he made to the OT was a very large part of what he was washing his hands of when he sold the company.

I think it mostly had to do with Fox’s ownership of ANH, which will soon become irrelevant.
