New Version of ‘The Godfather III’ Coming This December

There are many things I’m going to get in life that I haven’t asked for. A newly edited and restored edition of The Godfather III, however, that I wouldn’t mind.

Everyone knows The Godfather III is less than the first two movies. In fact, I always kind of ignore it and pretend the whole thing was left unfinished. It’s not that I needed a happy ending, after all, it’s that I needed a good one.

So, Paramount Pictures’ announcement that they will release a new edit and restoration of Francis Ford Coppola’s final film in The Godfather trilogy entitled Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone is really, really good news.

Besides, quarantine. Bored. News are good. Possible new stuff to watch even better!

Coppola had this to say about the new release:

Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone’ is an acknowledgement of Mario’s and my preferred title and our original intentions for what became ‘The Godfather: Part III. For this version of the finale, I created a new beginning and ending, and rearranged some scenes, shots, and music cues. With these changes and the restored footage and sound, to me, it is a more appropriate conclusion to ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Godfather: Part II’ and I’m thankful to Jim Gianopulos and Paramount for allowing me to revisit it.

Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone will have a limited theatrical release in December. It will then be available on Digital home entertainment platforms as well as on DVD/Blu-Ray.
