I assume they’ll just release trilogy packs or single film releases. Then they can release the ST pack after IX is out.
There’s also Pablo’s insistence that these have been conformed to the current SE.
It sounds like they’ve at least archived every scrap of celluloid at their disposal, so it could be that unaltered scenes will appear in a deleted scenes section of the inevitable 4K release. I’m hoping that we get both the incomplete Jabba scene and the 97 version.

None of those selling points were enough for me then, and a 4k HDR SE certainly won’t be enough of a selling point for me without the unaltered versions. I suspect I’m not alone in that regard.
With how awful the current masters are, it might be worth it just to have a good looking version of the SE.
Honestly though, if it ends up containing the OUT, I’ll be a day one purchase despite not have a 4k player.
It’s the same master. The only difference is that the GOUT is pretty much the highest possible quality that you can squeeze from that particular master.
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.
Phantasm films added sloppily! Sorry it took so long, I’ve been very busy with work lately.

Pixar’s last masterpiece.
Obviously you’ve never experienced Cars 2 in a packed theatre with a can of beans in your hand
How about on a roof at a drive in as a double feature with Pirates of the Caribbean 4?
That’s Vidiot from the Steve Hoffman forums, right? He’s had a ton of posts explaining/defending his work on the 2004 masters. They’re worth a read if you want some insight into the coloring process for the DVDs.
Has anyone picked up the Jurassic Park UHD Blu Ray? And if you have, can you confirm if it retains the alterations from the 3D release?

I watched my 1985 Rocky laserdisc (Japanese) recently and noticed during the final scene that some of the audio was different from the version on blu ray and dvd.
After the final bell in the Rocky\Apollo fight, a piano piece plays briefly before the main music kicks in. IMDB mentions this was removed for the surround sound versions for DVD.
The next thing I can
t find any reference to online. On the Laserdisc after the final bell rings, Apollo says "Aint gonna be no rematch" just once and Rocky replies "Don
t want one" twice, the second time sounding quite emotional and like he REALLY doesnt want one.
Does anyone know when they changed that to the version that is on every DVD\Blu Ray\youtube upload that I can find of the scene. Apollo saying “Ain
t gonna be no rematch" twice, followed by a single relatively nonchalant "Dont want one” from Rocky?
The original mono on the BD has the piano playing while they don’t want no rematch, but yeah it has Apollo twice and Rocky once, so I’d be curious to hear that LD. Could you record that bit of dialogue and post it online?
I’ll add this if it can be confirmed.
EDIT: On second thought, I won’t add this. I don’t want to go down the audio changes rabbit hole or this thread will never end.
Hollywood Theater in Portland is showing it from June 1-3, so if you know any local theaters that do 70mm, maybe on those days?
That sounds about right from what I saw in 70mm.
It’s been confirmed here that the 40th Anniversary release of Grease replaces the previously blurred Coke posters with Pepsi posters.
Updated to include more known alterations in the Terminator 2 4K master.
Does he actually know about the small alterations in Raiders and Jaws? Or was that kind of done without his knowledge?
Also, this was posted in another thread: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Episode-II-Attack-of-The-Clones-35mm-motion-picture-film-FULL-FEATURE-/232697163306?hash=item362dd4ee2a%3Ag%3AgJYAAOSwWY5ajOel&nma=true&si=CSCY%2BGKV8%2FYE8H7Yz%2BBBG6cZrxo%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
It lists Like Mike and Minority Report as a part of the package.
I don’t remember any trailers, but I did see a double feature at my local drive in with TPM and A Knight’s Tale.
Was Jango Fett twirling his gun in the 35mm version? I distinctly remember seeing that when I saw it in theaters.
Here’s part two of my last video, this time introducing how Nuke will be used in my new v3.0 workflow.😃
I listened to the complaints from the last one and made this one on one monitor, so you guys can better see what’s going on 😃
These are really neat to see. Thanks for doing them!
“Every single shot has a visual effect”
I don’t think that’s the case for TFA (besides obvious like coloring). And even if it is, it blends with practical so well you can barely tell the difference.
It’s quite possible that it’s the same thing for TFA, but it’s so common nowadays that it’s not even worth mentioning, pretty different from how it all was in 1999.
At the very least I feel like there’s a lot of little, quality of life type things that go into modern movies, like painting out wires and prop operators and alike.
Phantom Menace probably had more miniatures, whereas TFA probably had more animatronic creatures and props.
I don’t know, there’s quite a bit on Tatooine.
No idea. I still think miniatures have certain advantages over CGI. Explosions have a random element a computer really can’t recreate. At least not yet.
At the same time CG explosions usually scale better.
What do you guys think? On the surface level it really seems like they’re about equal. The reason I ask is because, being the start of the prequels, it’s always been noted as having too much CG. TFA was lauded for the amount of practical effects that it used, but it seems to use just as much green screen and CG characters as TPM.
The film Star Wars wasn’t marketed as “Episode IV: A New Hope” until around the time the prequels were released. So they definitely would not be OOT.
The last OOT VHS release was probably the Faces set.
The Faces tapes say A New Hope on them, but the Laserdiscs don’t for some reason.
…*checking for verification.
Okay, on the spine yes. But only on the spine.
The cassette label also had the ‘A New Hope’ subtitle.
Comparing the theatrical posters and the DVDs on my shelf… I guess I need to make some custom covers.
Also, the 1995 LaserDisc does say A New Hope, but on the back:
(The 1993 release does not)
Huh. I guess I never noticed that.
Not sure there were any?
I’m mostly going off of what it says on IMDB, which lists the multiple digital formats, IMAX, and 35mm.
