We have reported before that Kodak could bring their Ektachrome film back this year. As the end of 2017 approaches, we’re anxious to hear the news regarding this launch. According to a comment they posted on Twitter, they’ll be officially launching a limited amount of the film at the beginning of 2018.
Judging from the tweet from the official Kodak’s profile, they could have a supply of the film available for testing by the end of this year. This batch will only be a limited test run. And then, in 2018, they will bring Ektachrome back to the market. If everything goes as planned, I suppose.
We're working towards having limited supply of Ektachrome film available for market testing by year end with availability in 2018

As Kodak’s President Dennis Olbrich stated before, the company is “committed to meeting the evolving needs of today’s film shooters.” Ektachrome was a clear choice for them to bring back, and apparently, they are making an effort to make it happen. So, we’ll have Ektachrome back really soon.
