    Sorry is there's another thread on this but it seems odd that this doesn't have a release schedule.
    I understand that Jackson has been busy but this truly seems like a cash cow in the 4k market.

    Having been shot on 35mm seems that it could look brilliant

    I admit I'm pretty surprised WB hasn't milked this for 4K yet - seems like a total natural for the format!

    Maybe Jackson is holding it up for some reason?

    Yes I’d be excited about a UHD package of this. I have the extended edition package on BluRay. I’m sure this has been discussed in other threads- are most people satisfied with how the films look on that BluRay release? I thought the Fellowship film looked a bit disappointing.

    They'll wait to tie it to the hype around the Amazon series.

    Not certain what’s to be gained here, believe fx were 2k. Production photography may be improved

    Most stuff is still finished at 2K.

    That would require a whole new scan of the 4-perf negs and a complete new color grade IIRC.

    As long as Mr Jackson remembers to make everything nice & dark & green like he did with the extended first part :)

    Actually I don't think that a lot of Lord Of The Rings looked that great. Peter Jackson's penchant for turning down the colour & liking a flat image saw to that. I thought Return Of The King looked the best, but it's been a few years since I've seen it. I wonder if it'll all seem a bit anaemic after Game Of Thrones.
