Straw Hat Pirate
It's actually listed under Studio Canal in Australia as well, so chances are good here. Fingers crossed anyway, it would look incredible; it's probably Kurosawa's best-looking film. Well, that or Dreams but Ran is the better film.

Have 88 Films actually come out and said Untold Story was not an April Fool's?!? Its just far too crazy of an announcement to make on that day!Jackie Chan's Dragon Lord, Jackie Chan's Fearless Hyena, and Herman Yau's Untold Story have been acquired by distributor 88 Films for a UK Blu-ray release scheduled for Q3 2020. Announced on Facebook.
For those wondering about the legit info about these (because of April Fool's Day), some folks who have worked with 88 Films went into more detail. Dragon Lord has a 2K master but may need re-rating for one of the versions available, and Untold Story is expected to be cut by the BBFC for sexual violence in one scene.
Yeah it's quite possibly an April Fools but they literally went into detail about licensing costs on the Blu-ray forum which is a bit overkill for a joke if you ask me.Have 88 Films actually come out and said Untold Story was not an April Fool's?!?

My friend had the theory they did it as a joke and the amount of people on the FB post who were saying 'oh great, I'm going to buy this!' So they had an 'oh s#it, I think we're going to have to do this' moment...Yeah it's quite possibly an April Fools but they literally went into detail about licensing costs on the Blu-ray forum which is a bit overkill for a joke if you ask me.
Sounds reasonable lol, but honestly there's no harm testing the BBFC to see how much needs to be cut. Apparently it's getting a Blu-ray release in the US in the worst case scenario.My friend had the theory they did it as a joke and the amount of people on the FB post who were saying 'oh great, I'm going to buy this!'
