I doubt they will go back and redo the effects in 4k as that would cost millions of dollars. They'll just upconvert the 2k or 2.8k DI's as they have with other supposed 4k masters... unless a movie's film elements solely rest in the "analog" celluloid world, which would then allow for a fresh, new 4k master without upconverting anything.

I think at some point they will redo the digital effects in 4K and re-transfer the original film elements in 4K (or maybe even 8K), but I don't expect that anytime in the next 5 years at least. Maybe in 2021 for the 20th anniversary or something.
