Jaws made me forever afraid of water, I never learned how to swim and have never been in the ocean. Been to it...not in it. Needless to say Aquaman and Namor are favorite heroes when it comes to the ocean,lol. I think it's  why Creature and even Cthulhu scare me to this day. Jaws legitimately traumatized me. I saw it when I was 5. I love the flick though, but it did a number on me.

4K?  I still haven't converted many to Blu Ray.  There is something about the feel of a classic movie on VHS or regular DVD.  You don't see all the special effects wires and such.  It just has that classic feel that I love.  However, the remastered movies so have a beautiful quality to them.
I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity...

If the 4K (UHD) comes with a blu ray, then yes. I don't have 4K capability...yet. I do plan on upgrading in the future. However, I do have a portion of HORROR OF DRACULA in 4K...test scan from a Technicolor 16mm print. Only the first few minutes.

Looks like that is the case with most of the 4K titles being released, for the reason you gave.  They did the same thing with the early releases of BLU-Ray titles.

I think the Disney titles do dual issues for the buyers who want to have BLU-Ray disc for the family/media room player - and the regular DVD for the kids bedrooms or car's backseat players.  Makes sense.
