I read that this is also getting a 4K UHD release as well.

I saw it on Wednesday and LOVED it and thought it was even better than the first film. It was great to see the Crawleys together again. The perfect feel-good treat for fans of the series after more than two years of Covid.

Hi, Andrew! Thanks for bringing that to my attention. I did a further search and indeed found a placeholder for a 4k release which I have indicated in my first post. Should show up as an official preorder soon.

I was wondering about a 4K, given that Universal ultimately released a 4K edition of the previous film. I was beginning to think I might have to wait for a 4K of this; I didn't want to have to double-dip again.
