    Are they the original versions or are they the re-released versions? I already own the re-releases on blu ray, but if the original versions are now available digitally then I'm definitely getting them! ;)

    Those rumors have been around for years.

    Have patience, my friends. Sometimes good things come even when one doesn't expect them. Why, for a few years fans of Farscape were lamenting the lack of any blu-ray release and I had given up any hope. Then one day it seemed like it was out on blu-ray with almost no announcement or anything, much to my enjoyment.


    So miracles do happen. Especially when those miracles will make Disney money. I already have the blu-ray version of the OT, but without hesitation I'd go head and buy the OT again on blu-ray if I get the originals with it.

    Positivity is the key. I remember browsing Farscape forums regarding a blu-ray release, with the entire mood being "we'll never get it in anything other than DVD, sad faces all around"... and then like a month later my brother texted me an image of the Farscape blu-ray collection on sale in Best Buy. I was floored.

    So... fingers crossed. I don't want to have just my old VHS copies to fall back on.

    funny you mention the VHS, I was at Goodwill (chain of thrift store in the US) and I saw all 3 movies on the shelf never played. they were in great condition....and heres the kicker....they were released before 1993. no special edition crap on it. :D not bad for $3.

    The original releases would be considered Legends now.

    Embrace the future and its many added scenes and effects.

    After all, I know you'll all be clamoring for the remastered PT that is inevitably coming.
