Annie (1982) is getting the 4K treatment, but only as part of Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection Volume 3 ... Specifications below from https://ultrahd.highdefdigest.com/108485/columbiaclassics4kultrahdcollectionvolume3.html.

I am SO disappointed it does not appear this 4K disc, with what seems to be a fair amount of new material for the 40th anniversary, will not be available as a standalone purchase. From what I gather on Reddit, fans of some other films that were upgraded to 4K in previous volumes of Columbia Classics are still waiting for standalone releases, several years later. So it's by no means a done deal.

Maybe someone on eBay will want to break up their boxed set. As much as I have a soft spot for the show, and especially this movie -- and as undeniably classic as several other films in this set are -- I can't see spending $100 for it.

"Aw, gee," indeed! :)



Celebrating its 40th anniversary, ANNIE is the story of everyone’s favorite plucky, red-haired orphan! One day Annie (Aileen Quinn) is chosen to stay for a week with the famous billionaire “Daddy” Warbucks (Albert Finney). One week turns into many, and the only person standing in the way of Annie’s fun is Miss Hannigan, the tyrannical ruler of the orphanage (played to hilarious perfection by Carol Burnett). Will Miss Hannigan’s zany attempts to kidnap the irrepressible Annie succeed? Sing along with the unforgettable songs and experience this beloved musical!
