2:09 "And when we remastered Pirates 1, we actually had trouble with um, one of the reels. And we actually had to rescan the film because... tape just didn't work anymore."


This smells like BS, but what do I know? Disney laid the completed cut out onto HD tape and then... didn't bother making any copies of the digital tape? A likely story. And why on earth would this film be remastered?

LG B7 (OLED65B7P, 2017 -- bought 2017/05/31 & I couldn't be happier so far!) | Panasonic CX850 (TC-55CX850U, 2015 -- bought OLED to replace it due to poor off-angle, weird HDR colors, etc.)

I'm assuming he's talking about data tapes with the original scanned negative files on it or a graded conformed log version of the film.

The sort of tapes used in production for the last 20 years are extremely robust and short of burning the thing you can usually get the data off them somehow. And they have multiple backups.

So yes I think its probably bull.
