Recently, Divisa Home Video has announced that one of the best trilogies in the history of cinema: The Godfather, It will arrive this year complete in 4K UHD format, so that we can enjoy it in as much detail as possible. And speaking of details, we will tell you everything that is known and what is likely to come with this new version, because there are certain nuances that will interest the most gourmets of the seventh art.
The Godfather is one of the best movies ever, if not the best. It is impossible to agree on that, but it appears in all the pools, along with other legendary titles, such as Citizen Kane.
For this reason, film fans have had the pleasant surprise of officially knowing that the complete trilogy will arrive in 4K UHD format, so that we can enjoy it to the fullest in our living room.

As a result of the announcement, some doubts have arisen among the fans, which we will try to resolve.
Doubts about the final content of this version in 4K
Apparently, all three films will arrive in original format. This is important, because the third of the films, (which is the silly son of the trilogy, we are not going to deny it), has a version with a new montage.
According to some user, this new cut of the tape will also come out in 4K on its own, so it may not be included in the trilogy pack.
But nevertheless, it probably won’t be like that in the endYes, apparently this edition follows in the footsteps of the 4K versions that have been announced for other countries.
Two variants appear in these advertisements. The first would bring 4 discs, in 4K and yes it would include the new cut of the third movie, in addition to the original, plus the usual extras disc.
In these international versions, another 4K collector’s edition has also been announced, which would come out at a higher price and for which not many more details have been given. It seems that, for the moment, in our country we will not see this format anymore premium.
In the Spanish case, the films received a new dubbing into our language in 2008 and it is to be expected that, as in previous versions of the trilogy, the new 4K version includes both dubs, the original and the most recent.
The truth is that the 2008 dub was not very well received by the fans. Marlon Brando / Vito Corleone went from being dubbed by Francisco Sánchez and his serious and heavy timbre, to having the voice of Miguel Ángel Jenner. This is an exceptional dubbing actor that you will recognize because he is the voice of Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Furia) in Spanish… But it is not the same when you have seen the first version of the film.
And what about the third Godfather movie?
If you know a little about the history of The Godfather, you already know that Coppola did not want to do that third part (and it shows in the result, really), but the economic disaster of his film Hunch (1981) left him shaking.
As in his first film, Coppola had to bow his head and accept an offer from Paramount that he couldn’t refuse. That is why there is also a new cut that tries to alleviate the mess somewhat, but it continues to fail.
Be that as it may, it seems that, depending on whether one version or another of dubbing and movies are more popular, at the end of March we will be able to have them all available in 4K to the delight of the most exquisite palates. And whoever wants, can use the third to level some lame table.
