    I'm sure they will release the videos again when they have remastered them. On Blu-Ray and maybe again on DVD. Would be great to see them in HD.

Through the official Michael Jackson store they could expand on that, and release a high-spec Blu-Ray containing other materials, such as the 'Making Of' or even documenting the process of how they converted it.

    But no, they'd rather all that work goes to waste.
    Is it the same as the 3D though? I've heard that some of the audio was missing (or couldn't be used) when they did the 3D version and they had to do a new mix of the music parts. It was said that are some bad edits that can be heard. If so, then its kinda similar to the 4K version of the Missionary Man video by Eurythmics. The entire video is not 4K, only the non-effects parts are 4K since that portion came from the original film. The special effects parts were edited on videotape and I guess it was too expensive and time consuming to do it over.

    They scanned the original film in 4K before making it 3D. Thriller has no cgi so they could easily scan it. It wasn't edited on tape. They can do that with every short film from the 80s. Dangerous era videos might be more difficult because they started using cgi. I hope they include both the new and old audio for Thriller.

    The audio has no correlation to the video. The elements were recreated for it to work in the cinema surround sound setting.

    Yeah, if I recall they lost the original audio materials for that part of the video, so they needed to recreate it in order to make a surround mix. Some fans said it was quite noticeable.

    Yeah I saw the amateur recording and it threw me big time. The most iconic music video of all time.. with different music?

    I still hope they do release it - along The Making of - and Maybe a combo with Ghosts and The making of Ghosts.
