Good! The very first release is already the ULTIMATE. We should expect no further incursions into pockets.

Disney calls all of their UHD releases "ultimate." I wouldn't read much into that. However, this doesn't seem like a title that they would double dip on anyway. Given all the delays and the Armie Hammer issue, they're probably just happy to be finished with it.

This is is also going to stream on Hulu and HBO Max at the same time as the digital purchase date. So I'll just watch it with a subscription I already have. I had actually heard somewhere that it was going to stream a little earlier, but now I can't find that source.
