Because James Cameron??
We haven't had anyone ask lately why The Abyss never made into the K store, let alone Blu-ray.


Lots on his to-do list apparently...

The priority is finishing Av2. As you all likely know, the live filming was technically finished awhile ago (although I'm sure there will be some reshoots, there always are with JC). There is more work on the virtual/CGI side than the live filming, which is one reason Av2 continually gets pushed back (and the virus didn't help). He wants Av3 worked on simultaneously with Av2, when possible, so that's added to the delays of those films (now 2022 for Av2) and of course Disney's hand is now involved given the acquisition of Fox. I think he sees those projects, and a couple of others, as priorities over 4K releases of the mentioned films, but I would think Disney could push to get these releases done without him (depending on contracts and ownership issues). Personally, I think we'll see them within 6 months, but that's not based on anything but my opinion.
