As everyone knows, Star Wars: A New Hope, may be the first to hit motion pictures screen (in the summer of 1977), but stands as the fourth in the series of nine. It’s a bit akin to a Broadway shell game. Which walnut is the pea under?
“Let’s sit down and watch part four!”
No need to discuss the film at all.
It had moderate success not only upon its original release, but in revivals, new editions, home video rentals and sales, as well as the eight other films in the main series, and others that branch off that story.
My concern was how it would work in 4k, as a Blu-ray for home theaters, both on larger panels as well as in projection.
The easy answer is Splendidly.
One might presume that Fox / Disney would release something special, and they have. Albeit not the original 1977 version of the film, but so be it.
One of the things that I had either not recalled, or has been changed (which I would doubt) is that wonderful bit of aural maneuvering in the opening.
A bit akin to two...
