This is WMG again. Regarding the "ALL-NEW" bonus feature; Lisa Henson is Jim Henson's daughter, and Toby Froud is Brian Froud's son.
The film itself however looks about as good as it ever will in the 4K format and you're going to notice alot more support wires, torn costumes, set lines, and such. But to me this is wonderful and adds more interest and mystique to a film I'm already extremely familiar with it. Lets face it, if you are bothering to buy a 4K copy of "The Dark Crystal" after probably already owning the VHS, DVD, and Blu ray, its a treat to see even deeper into it. Again, a shame they didn't package it for such dedicated fans or notate it as such on the product page.
UPDATE: After writing this review and flagging the item description on Amazon, it looks they did in fact update the product pages to reflect the digipack anniversary packaging of the blu ray vs the standard packaging of the 4k. Good on Amazon for doing that! Still wish the 4K (which is arguably the deluxe version) got the deluxe treatment, but that is on the publisher, not the seller.
