    I have seen colorized movies, seen movies converted to 3D and recently in UHD HDR versions. If done well I found the HDR versions to look very natural and in any case the closest to a proper original presentation among the three options.

    Are there any new bonus features they can add for the re-release? I'm pretty happy with my Emerald Edition Blu-ray from the 70th anniversary, and then I think they did something new for the 75th, but I never double-dipped. Obviously the 4K will be an upgrade for those who have embraced that format, but sentimentally, this has already been put out with so much care the last several times that I'm not really sure what else they could add.

    They could remaster Dreamer if Oz up from a vhs quality and add that back on.

    Dreamer was edited and finished on video. They would have to go back to the film elements.

    That's a shame. It's not a classic, but it's a solid TV film.
