even tough there still is this audio track issue of the volume 2 5.1 track missing.

Can you elaborate? I have it on my end and it’s the same I uploaded.

Really? Let me check the latest version you uploaded on the spleen but I clearly remember the 5.1 track was in fact a 2.0 track.

I have never uploaded my version to Spleen. Only MEGA, unless someone uploaded mine for me.

Its official; The 4k version is coming to Disney+

Dunno about that, they never said what quality it would be or if it would be upscaled.

I HOPE it’s a re-render since the final product was all put together digitally and Lucasfilm would’ve held onto it. But it could just be an upscale similar to mine. If it is, it might be worse quality, as Disney is known to not care a bunch about that stuff.

I hope I’m wrong though, and it will become the best version available. Same for the Ewok movies and cartoons. I loved Lucasfilm’s work on the 4K versions of the movies, so it could be just as good.

Thanks for this amazing project! I’m also just wondering what this Clone Wars 1440p version is that you mention. Was that an official release?

I believe the Disney+ Version allows 1440p. The show was always rendered at 1440p (except Season 7), but I’m pretty sure the Blu Ray releases were only 1080p at the time.

I haven’t extracted the video files form Disney+, so I can’t be certain. But I am fairly sure they are using the 1440p renders as they use 4K with the movies and other shows.

Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll ever see another Blu Ray release outside of the films because of Disney+ now. Clone Wars has been over for a while and Rebels has been over for years and we still have zero word on physical box sets to rip from.

Wow, this is pretty interesting! What was your process for upscaling the cartoon?

I used a new program that came out this year called Video Enhance AI. It’s based off of the Gigapixel AI upscaler, only for video. It’s worked like a charm, and even has given some great stills from the Holiday Special beleive it or not.

Took it a while to do both Volumes, since its basically two movies, but it worked out great.

A few months ago I upscaled Clone Wars to 4K. Unfortunately, I found out Star Wars forums tend to look down on fan edits/restorations. Figured you guys might appreciate it though.

I always thought it wrong that we never got a re-release of this show in higher quality, since the first two seasons of TCW treat it as canon more or less. It does a good job introducing Ventress and Grievous without needing to read a book or comic. We also have TCW Seasons 1-6 in 1440p, and Season 7 in 4K, along with all the films and Mandalorian. So it’s bothered me having to downgrade to 480p when watching 2003 Clone Wars.

Feel free to email tackelberry212@gmail.com for more info.

UPDATE: Genndy Wars was just released on Disney+ today. However, from my analysis, it is just a straight upload of the DVD version with no enhancements or upgrades.

I will still host this superior version until that changes, I hope one day it does.
