Kodak will resurrect its classic Ektachrome film next year, the company has revealed in its recent podcast.

Kodak originally announced at CES in January this year that Ektachrome would be coming back, and we’d see it by the end of this year. And then silence.

But in the company’s recent Kodakery podcast, Kodak executives gave interviews explaining the process and how they’re testing it.

At the moment Kodak is fine-tuning pilot versions of the classic film and testing it to make sure it’s up to standard before mass producing it.

This process should be complete by the end of this year, with the first production run scheduled to hit the market in 2018.
