I just watched Star Wars: A New Hope in Dolby Atmos off Disney+.\n\nI have to say that it blows away the DTS 6.1 version on Blu-Ray. There's plenty of overhead action in the movie and much improved bed level immersion as well into the front wide and rear speaker areas (again via Matrix\/Scatmos expansion to 11.1.6). I heard sounds floating in mid-air in points in the room overhead I've never heard them in before, 2\/3 the way up the wall floating in places just above my head and what not instead of all the way to the ceiling. IN actuality, they were also in the rear mid regions as well from other seats (phantom array imaging in a relativistic manner). Music was all over the place at different times. It started in the front like the original soundtrack and then moved into the front wide region throughout much of the film and by the end credits, it was in strongly both the side beds and top middle speakers as well as the front wide region creating an all encompassing tunnel of John Williams music (oddly not in the rears, but surround #1 had partial, coming from the side component of the dual-matrix combination). Ships flew well around the room into all conceivable areas in various scenes. Radio chatter floating in large bubbles overhead during the X-Wing attack on the Death Star (Luke, you've switched off your targeting computer. What's wrong?) There was even some dialog panning in a couple of spots on Tatooine (going from the left side of the screen to the center, although dialog was usually in the center only). I suppose the subwoofer deep bass could have been more there, but it never was as strong as in the prequels in any prior release (Revenge of the Sith's opening drum beats reminding of Taiko drums). The only thing that could have made it better immersed, really is if it were also in 3D video (It's too bad those finished conversions were never released. With 3D fading, they may never be.)\n\nMy projector is 2K\/3D, so I cannot comment on 4K\/HDR, but that's the sharpest I've ever seen A New Hope in 2K, now rivaling Revenge of the Sith for picture quality on the same projector (save many of the cheap saber special effects are still cheap looking by comparison, etc., although I think I prefer the model shot special effects for the space scenes). And the best thing of all is that Han now shoots first! (Ok, they shoot more or less simultaneously, although I think it looks more like Greedo bumped the trigger as he was hit just ahead first which appeared to knock his aim off to the right. Regardless, it's better than Greedo shooting first. I didn't really have that big a problem with the other effects other than than terrible Jabba scene still being there, which it could have done without, IMO (just because the footage existed for the scene, doesn't mean it should be used. Part of the appeal of Return of the Jedi was seeing Jabba for the first time, although I suppose if you watched the prequels that would give it away. It'll never be quite the same for future generations as seeing the originals at the theater or drive-in).
