Also saw the magic begins reel....for the cheapest price ever. (Weird) it doesn't look to be in good shape from looking at it

Didn't know this was shot on film, isn't this just a VHS to Film for theaters?
Just saw on ebay that the master tape is for sale. Does that mean we won't get a 4k scan of it because it's not in the estate's possession? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1652004635...vTB8FK9Qj-&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
We're not getting a 4k scan anyway cause it's tape
Tape is basically DVD quality

That is a tape. It would need to be a film reel for 4K.

That can be 4K I think. The auction ends in just 8 hours and its not very expensive.

The Estate has the original 35mm negatives in their possession (most likely). This is a tape master from after special FX production.

Tape is basically DVD quality
I do believe we can come up with better results from a raw rip of this rather than any of the versions released on DVD through the years.

That auction ends in 50 minutes. I hope someone who can scan it gets it. Would be great to see it in better quality.

Ooof, already ended... hopefully it went to someone that's willing to share, assuming anything can be done with it.
