    Not only games but also movies get remasters these days. Sony Pictures Entertainment announced that the 2005 Final Fantasy VII CGI spinoff movie, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, will be re-released this June 8th as a 4K HDR remaster version. To celebrate the announcement the first 10 minutes of the movie was made available on YouTube (although only at 1080p):


    This 4K remaster will apparently include the extra 25 minutes of footage and revised scenes from the 2009 re-release Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. The 4K remaster is already available to pre-order on Amazon for $30.99.

    But will it include the best version of One Winged Angel?

    Back when the first bluray release came out, the original scenes that were on DVD had to be upscaled which showed some noticeable blurriness in the image quality for most of the movie. The extra 25 minutes of extended and revised scenes were obviously rendered at 1080p so they looked clear and crisp compared to most of the movie.

    Now that they're releasing this in 4K at this day and age, I'm wondering if they just nabbed the original Bluray release from 2009 and just took every frame and used AI upscaling. I heavily doubt they re-rendered the whole movie or kept the original assets to do so.

    Not a version of One Winged Kong. How dare you.

    Edit: For the uninitiated:

    I hope it's a re-render and not a upscale. Still a fine addition to my collection.

    I remember watching this gamovie and the plot didn't make a lick of sense. Maybe now it will make even less.

    Will we be getting a 4k rerender/remaster of spirits within any time soon?

    Anyway might give it a look. Only time I saw the original was a crazily compressed xvid on an old 4:3 screen.

    This movie was a dumpster fire and I love it so much, so I definitely want this.

    This movie helped Sakaguchi kickstart his hip-hop career, so I can see value in it

    they probably just upscaled it from the original 1080p bluray but it's to be expected at this point :(

    Meh.
    Remaking shit may make it look shinier, but it will still smell like shit.

    With the big success of the remake ofFF7, I can say that this is a great move for them to do. They will cash in on a lot of the new audience as well as the old ones. I really hope that this will sell really well, so we can get more FF movies in the future!

    Now I have to buy the movie for the fourth time. Excited to see the extra scenes, though. Perhaps Omnislash version 3?! :)

    Having looked at the 10 minute trailer I'm pretty sure they re-rendered almost all of the scenes, the industry leader in ai upscaling (topaz) can do a great job at upscaling videos but it woul probably miss many details up close which can be seen in the trailer... cant wait for this to come out and see if I was correct :)
