Obviously, none of this is official until Paramount actually makes it so in a press release, but now we can safely assume that the remaining original cast films will all arrive in September. Also, keep in mind that Paramount may handle the release differently here in the States than the release plan in Europe. It could be that the films will come in another 4K UHD box set, as opposed to singles. We’ll have to wait and see.
As for the Next Generation films in 4K Ultra HD, our guess would be that Paramount intends to drop those in time for the holidays this year or early next year, probably timed to the release of the recent season of Star Trek: Picard on Blu-ray or the release of the show’s final season (either on Paramount+ or Blu-ray).
In any case, we also think it’s safe to assume that all of the remaining classic Trek films will finally be released in 4K Ultra HD over the coming months. Thanks to Bits reader Ben G. for the heads-up!
Enjoy the rest of your long holiday weekend, everyone! We strongly suggest checking out Top Gun: Maverick at your local IMAX theater. It’s absolutely a fantastic pure-cinema experience made for the big screen.
And we’ll leave you with a look at the cover art for the already available 4K UHD pre-orders on Amazon below...
