Im not one to watch behind the scenes extras or any of that, so I can't comment on that, but after seeing thee best 4k work I have ever seen, I plan on watching it.
The quality of 4K films, in comparison to the regular Blu-ray versions, often depends upon two things: (1) the quality of the original that they have to work with; and (2) how much effort they put into the project. Here there must have started with either the original film or a first-generation print of it.
There is a noticeable upgrade from the regular Blu-ray version to the 4K version. I did a side-by-side comparison of both films and you will notice improvements in the video quality of the 4K version--more details, sharper images throughout, improved resolution, and better color saturation. You will notice the improvements most in outdoor, daylight scenes and less so in night-time scenes. There are no glitches in the print--no "snow," spots, or lines. It is an excellent image and that's great for a film that came out in 1975. The 4K conversion has been excellent for all Spielberg films released in 4K, including Close Encounters of the Third Kind and War of the Worlds (see my reviews of these elsewhere).
Importantly, there are no problems with HDR, which is the single most often complaint of 4K films. HDR makes the contrast sharper by making dark colors darker and light colors lighter. This has worked well for some films and not well for other films. The most common complaint for HDR when it is bad is that the scenes are too dark in the 4K version of the film, particularly night-time scenes (Skyfall, Spectre, & Van Helsing all suffer from this). Happily no HDR problems here. Everything looks good, including the night-time scenes or dimly-lit indoor scenes. This is one of only a few films which used HDR 10+ (almost all have HDR 10).
The 7.1 DTS audio is excellent and an improvement from the regular Blu-Ray version. Several special features are included as well, including the making of the movie, the shark (it is still functional), scene outtakes, and production photos. The cover of the box has a 3D image of the shark, what was called a "wiggle picture" when I was a kid.
I now own about sixty 4K movies or nature specials. Roughly 45 of the 60 show noticeable improvements in video and audio. The others either are roughly the same from Blu-Ray to 4K or suffer from the aforementioned HDR darkness issues. So it's overall good but in some cases not worth buying the film again in 4K. My favorites in 4K and I'm talking about imagery, not the plot or acting, are Jurassic World, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Planet Earth II, and the Flight of the Butterflies. Those films really wow you in 4K.
This is an excellent film in 4K and is worth upgrading to if you already own the regular Blu-ray version.
