I don’t have 4K equipment yet, so I’m mostly interested in the special features and if there will be anything new in there. I imagine that I might replace my Blu-ray collection with something like this in a few years, but for now it seems too expensive. Especially considering that you could get almost 4 years of Disney+ for that money, and watch the 4K versions that way.

It also seems weird to put both the 4K and HD versions in the same massive set. If you have a 4K player you don’t need the HD discs and if you don’t have one you’d only want the HD discs. This way it just makes it unnecessarily expensive and probably physically huge as well.

if you don’t care about quality then, sure, you could get 4 years of Disney+.

Remember, you own nothing with Disney+ and you’ll have to subscribe for the rest of your life to get those movies. AND you have to hope they don’t ever remove those particular movies.

I’ll never understand anyone’s interest in something that’s streaming only. That gives the studios the power.

Also, if you look at all 4k releases, they always come with the regular HD versions. Disney never includes any bonus features on the 4k discs, including commentaries. That means that if you want any of that, you have to include the HD disc.

I give this all the likes.

😃 😃 😃 Thank you 😃

Great video! He actually says “despecialized” but also says he can’t get Disney to release the original unaltered versions.

THAT’S TOO MUCH MONEY FOR THAT

EDIT: did the math and it works out to ~$36/movie. Absolutely insane. Short of the OOT, i can’t begin to conceive what kind of special features it would need to have to justify that price.

I’ve got news for you - the Marvel Best Buy exclusive set comes with none. It’s only the 4k discs and it was $550. It’s sold out.

Young Indiana Jones...

JimJimBinks - 7 years ago

When I worked at Lowry Digital Images, we restored the entire Young Indiana Jones Chronicles at 1080p at least, though I’m pretty sure it was a higher resolution than that. So the HD masters are out there.

dannyboylee - 7 years ago

Ooooooooooohh…

That is so cool. I wonder why they aren’t releasing them along with the movies?

JimJimBinks - 7 years ago

I don’t know. Maybe they’re prepping for a bigger release. At the time Lucas made the Young Indy Chronicles, he wanted it all to be for sale on an “Interactive CD-ROM” complete with learning materials about actual historical events talked about or shown in each episode.

Where did that quote come from?
