I hadn't heard of these until the Despeciaized edition of A New Hope came out. I would be interested in hearing the full commentary, since it was edited to be played with the original version. Does someone have these commentaries? I tried to look them up, but couldn't find anything, because I didn't catch what the commentator's name was.

I'm not sure I quite understand what you're saying here, but you can find some info here:

Come to think of it, I don't recall listening to them myself, mostly because I just can't stand the SEs so taking these discs out isn't a thought I entertain... at all, really. The box itself is nice, though. Really cool cardboard.

No, it wasn't the cast and crew commentary. It was an "expert's commentary."

I remember either Adywan or Harmy asking for these at one point too.  Dunno who they got them from, but the request was eventually filled.

Huh? That's the first time I hear of such a thing.

Where did you find out about these?

It's one of the multiple tracks on the Despecialized Edition of A New Hope.

If you aren't in the market to buy the DVD why don't you just send Harmy a pm?  I'm sure he'd be able to answer your question since you heard it on one of his projects.

Apparently the rapidshare links are down as well. Does anyone still have all of this? I'd love to grab these.

Yes, I would greatly appreciate this as well. I'm curious to hear the details that were cut out for the Despecialized edition.

Bumping this for great justice. I love me some commentary tracks.

If Funimation responded to critics of the Orange Bricks…

“We are always impressed with how closely fans watch the many different versions we have made for the Dragon Ball series over the years. It is flattering to know that, indeed, the audience is watching. Consequently, each version comes out differently and any changes that you see on the all-new 1080p high-definition transfer of the original Japanese masters on the Dragon Ball Z Season Set One DVD are deliberate creative decisions. We can confirm that there are no technical glitches as has been reported.”

Any chance these are somewhere else too? I have yet to be successful getting access to the spleen.

Did they also have one of these commentaries for the Prequels? Because I was gonna mix it in with my copy of Revenge of the Sith.

Does anyone have the JJ Abram’s commentary for TFA? I can’t rip the track on my Mac from the CE BD (no BD drive on Mac). I want to include it on a CC/slight re-edit I’m working on. If you’ve got the track as a separate file (of any format), would much appreciate a PM. Cheers.

Has anybody ever asked Pablo himself if these can be made available again? They exist somewhere at Lucasfilm and if enough interest is shown he’s certainly got enough clout to get the official site to make them available for streaming or perhaps put on the future blu-ray releases.

I mean, I’m sure it’s not that simple but it can’t hurt to ask him.

Couldn’t hurt to ask indeed. But given how outdated these are maby it’s a long shot.(He makes lots of refrences to legends material.)

BTW does anybody know how meany of these he did? Did he do one for all 6 episodes?
