I hope Mr. Coppola would bring his "The Godfather Saga"/"The Godfather--The Novel For Television", (which is essentially Godfather I and II combined, but presented in chronilogical order with added footage) to Blu-ray now that this Part III "Coda"version has been announced.
And following the release of The Godfather Part III to theaters in 1990, Paramount re-edited The Godfather Saga into The Godfather Trilogy: 1901-1980 by including the events that took place in the third film. The Trilogy version was initially released direct-to-video on VHS and LaserDisc in 1992.

There were also other edits of the 1977 version: in 1981, it came out on VHS as The Godfather: The Complete Epic 1902-1959 with a reduced running time of 386 minutes (in 2016, an HD version of this edit, with additional footage that restored the program to 423 minutes, appeared on HBO as Mario Puzo's The Godfather: The Complete Epic 1901-1959), and a related edit for syndication/cable was released in 1982 as The Godfather Novella, which the other stations used while NBC still had the broadcast rights to the original 1977 version.
