Another IMAX hybrid for the IMAX scenes alone as it the video itself had some errors.
BluRay rip for the rest of the film.

I'm not grasping what you're doing here.. this has already been done?
I had an idea:
Use the 2160p scenes from the UHD for the main part of the movie; use the blu-ray extra scenes from the trilogy bonus disc for the IMAX shots, except upscale them to 2160p (using Topaz VEAI), so the entire movie is in 4k.
What do you think?

Yes there is already a hybrid but I don't know its origins and when I went to watch it I noticed a bright flash between some scenes. Inspecting the video I found a lot of white frames inserted between switching aspect ratios scenes. So I decided to simply use this version to get the IMAX scenes and replace them in the BluRay.

Sounds good but I'll leave that to more experienced editors.

You'd have to do SDR>HDR grading on the IMAX footage or HDR>SDR tonemapping on the rest of the film. Either way doing it in way that looks good and consistent throughout would take a good bit of effort.

Are these thumbnails without links to full res frames? I'm clicking but nothing opens. What's the AR?

I will be leaving the main 2160p footage as-is in HDR, and upgrading the IMAX footage to HDR, I may even have Tekno3D do that HDR pass for me after its upscaled to 4k.
Every intermediate step (and sources) will be lossless until the final output
