    That's a good question.

    It definitely won't be the original version.

    It will definitely have all the Special Edition additions from the 90s.

    Will it have the new "MacClunkey" addition? Who knows. My best guess is that it will.

    There's a 99% chance it is the MacClunkey edition.

    Yeah, I would bet a very significant amount of money that all of them are the versions on Disney +.

    Special features?

    It is crazy to me that the original trilogy is one of the most popular film series of all time, and Disney still hasn't released a list of the special features.
    Do they want to sell this? Do they even care?

    So this would be version 5.0, I guess? The '81 re-release had the first change, then the '97 SE, then more changes for the DVD release, even more for blu-ray and now possibly the last set of changes for 4K. And that's not counting the different sound mixes.

    Surprised that EMPIRE can't be found yet on Amazon in 4k.

    What I'M surprised about is that Best Buy hasn't announced ANYTHING regarding Steelbook releases for anything but Episode IX.
    While I'm fully expecting Steelbooks for the 4K releases of each of the movies, I would have thought they would have been marketing the heck out it already!
    I'm not interested in their "Skywalker Saga" collection (won't fit in my shelf with all the other Steelbooks).

    It is practically a stealth release with no promotion.
    To be honest Disney doesn't need to promote it. And they know it. They probably figure those few consumers that want these popular films physically in 4K is not worth the hassle. And they aren't wrong.
    I'm a big supporter of physical disc. But on Disney + these films will always be available. They will never not be available.

    So I can watch all 9 movies for an entire 30 days for $7. That is basically the price of one 48 hour digital rental of one movie.

    And in Dolby Vision.

    This purchase of all these SW films would literally be wasting $243 of my hard earned money.

    I have no internet much to speak of so watching on 4K on Disney+ or anywhere else for that matter is not feasible. Thank you Ajit Pai, for throwing money at the ISP's and not forcing them to do anything seeing as how I'm a block away from service.

    But anyway, I can order all of these through the Disney Club right now for $13.98 each just by purchasing one movie. But I have to admit that big box set at Best Buy with all the movies looks very very nice indeed.

    Before George left he added a shot of Greedo saying "MacClunkey" before being shot. That scene mysteriously appeared when the films were put on Disney Plus.

    The need for the powers that be to CONSTANTLY tinker with and change these films just boggles my mind. It costs them money to do so. Why? Why is Disney continuing with the darned near pathological meddling that Lucas perpetrated? It's almost laughable at this point.
