    I’m hearing on multiple dates for release; March 3, March 10, April 10, and Early 2020. Anyone know which release date it actually will be? I’m also hearing from some sites that the Blu-ray edition will feature the entire 144 minute version – released on media for the first time in 40 years. Is that a rumor, or (hopefully) the truth?
