30 Discs?! That’s more in one collection of films than my entire film collection
Heat!
The only problem is that the 'extras' get a bit same-y after you've watched 3-4 Weta workshop clips...
Out of curiosity how long is the entire extended edition saga? We talking a whole 24 hours back to back?
The Hobbit trilogy has a 3D extended release - anyone know if they're in this set, or if it's just cut down to 2D
They will upscale this to 4k, I guarantee it.

They may release this as 4k, but it won't be upscaled. My TV already does upscaling.

It would have to be upscaled, they weren't filmed in 4k. However there is equipment that can do it much better than a TV can.
The native resolution of 35mm film is above 4k, so it is perfectly possible for old films to look better than new films shot using 4k cameras.
I believe the SFX were rendered in 2K so would need to be upscaled.

I believe you're right, and PJ is not willing to work on a 4k release.

There's an interesting article on recent films and masters here gadgetflux.net/lis…es/

LOTR was filmed on 35mm but then scanned-in for digital post processing at 2K. The Hobbit was "filmed" digitally at 5K but then downsized to 2K for post processing. It would require a lot of rework on grading and digital SFX to produce a native 4K of either. They would most likely just run it through an upscaler instead.
Remember as well that official 2k isn't HD(1080p) and official 4k isn't UHD (2160p) so a 2k master is better quality than HD, but still not near UHD

2K is 2048x1080 and typically cropped to 1998×1080. So not that much better than HD at 1920x1080. I doubt anyone would be able to tell at normal viewing distances.
