Thanks phildesfr, everything’s awesome as usual. I noticed a few tiny errors here and there, hope you don’t mind me making some suggestions.

  • Copyright dates should probably be updated from 2016 to 2017
  • TFA Copyright date should be 2015-2017
  • Rogue One Copyright date should be 2016-2017
  • ‘Concept Arts’ should probably be ‘Concept Art’ (drop the S)
  • Bottom text is missing an ‘and’ where it says: “Dolby” the double-D logo
  • In the AOTC text, ‘including’ is misspelled as 'incluing’
    And it looks like there’s an extra space between ‘meant to be’ and ‘seen’
  • ROTS text should probably say ‘CLONE WARS’ instead of ‘CLONE WAR’ (not sure)
    Also there’s a typo where it says ‘final chapter is’ instead of ‘final chapter in’

Of course your designs are really awesome just how they are. Thanks again, I appreciate you sharing your great creations.

Thanks for your keen eye, Depheros! Always surprising to see how many obvious typos remain after countless checking 😃.
I have made the modifications, along with some others tweaks. I’ll be uploading the corrected files shortly.

No problem. I’m used to scrutinizing what I type, I’m horrible with typos. Anyways, thanks, can’t wait to make my own set.

Star Wars Despecialized Editions - Custom Bluray Set
Time

I don’t know if it’s been mentioned before, but now some scumbag made a crappy website dedicated to selling Blu-ray sets using the work of Harmy, njvc, phildesfr (and countless others). Every once in awhile, I’ll check Youtube to see what the next neckbearded asshat with a camcorder has to say about his new ripoff Blu-ray set. Sometimes I call them out in the comments. Some are misinformed, thinking that the only way to get them is through Ebay or some loser’s website. Others are just lazy and/or stupid. But anyways, I saw comments from this dude - either promoting his website, or thanking the uploader for buying from his site. It’s just really sad. Maybe someone could try to contact his hosting service? I’m not sure if that would do more harm than good.

Erasing the Prequels Entirely
Time

I’ve been planning out my own edit of ROTJ for a long time, I’ll be renaming it to Episode III, or just ditching the “Episode” part entirely, because the prequels don’t exist in my mind. I’ve also been thinking about just replacing the STAR WARS logo with the RETURN OF THE JEDI logo and deleting the title portion of the crawl. (I’d do that for ESB as well) I’ve seen mockups of that here in the past, and I looks pretty sweet.

Anyways, as far as the Force Awakens, the bits of Palpatine dialouge don’t bother me that much, but I guess losing them would be preferred. Maz’ reference to the Sith is fine. The word “Sith” was even in deleted clips of the conference room scene in Star Wars.

Hello guys¡ I recently watched ROTJ SemiEspecialized v2.15 and i noticed there are some “squares” around the ships in some space scenes that, for example, were not present when i saw Despecialized or the Special Edition. Do you know if it´s an error or is of the own film? and why is not in the other versions?

Those would be matte boxes.

Absolutely fantastic as usual. I’m really looking forward to Despecialized 3.0 (since this will be its main source), but I’m also really interested to see how the SE looks without the awful colors. Keep up the great work.

Practically nobody is interested in a special special edition.

Based on Reddit, more people are interested in this than the OUT. Every time I see the subject of the different cuts come up anywhere other than here, someone inevitably says some variation of “the unaltered versions would be nice, but I’d rather they just get rid of the bad changes and update the CGI for the rest so that it will match the new movies”, and then everyone else upvotes it.

This is why I can’t stand the Star Wars reddit. It’s full of PT and SE worshippers who won’t stop posting about their tattoos and stick figure families. I see tons of people on there saying “most of the changes were great, just get rid of Greedo shooting and it will be perfect.”

I can understand their sentiment. After all, with Mike Verta’s project completed the original Star Wars has been well restored, and the original elements to the other two are in far better shape. The OOT will eventually be released, if not by Disney then by obsessive fans. If Disney wants to completely update the SE for a new generation, that would be par for the course with what we’ve gotten previously and continue the tradition of trying to keep these films relevant to the masses. It’s actually a fascinating experiment which has been going on since '77, and a part of me is saddened that Disney won’t continue that. I suspect that if there weren’t constant revisions, The OT would be increasingly be seen as a cultural artifact today, rather than a part of an ongoing story. The only reason I’m against the SE is that the OOT isn’t officially available.

Right, I agree. I think the SE has it’s place for people who like that sort of thing. I just get annoyed with users who call you a loser fanboy and downvote you into oblivion for liking the originals, because the Special Editions are OBVIOUSLY superior.

Celebration 2017 Speculation
Time

I don’t know if this han been discussed already, but I thought this was interesting. A host of the Star Wars Show, Anthony Carboni, said this on the latest episode:
"Any real juicy Star Wars related news for the next few weeks is probably being saved for the event itself, gigantic wink."
This leads me to believe that he might know what the “juicy news” is. If Lucasfilm/Disney are making a big suprise announcement about the theatrical trilogy, I doubt this guy would already know about it. Or maybe he does somehow, I don’t know. I’m just reading into things too much.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - FanEdit Ideas <strong><em>SPOILERS</em></strong>

Very well done except for the fact that they teleport from Scarif to Tatooine.

good point! Ideally, Tatooine should be painted out of the shot of the escape pod. I think that would help maintain continuity.

I don’t see how that would help…they still land on Tatooine, don’t they?

Maybe they meant replace Scarif in the Rogue One shot using the matte painting of the escape pod shot? I think that would be better than making Tatooine disapear

George Lucas's worst decision
Time

Besides what has already been said (making the SE and PT), I’d say his worst decision was replacing Gary Kurtz. Return of the Jedi could’ve been a lot better if Lucas didn’t have as much of a say in it.

Will we get a teaser for the Superbowl? Surely something by May. Hard to believe the 40th anniversary of the movie we all love is a mere four months from now.

Didn’t the first TFA teaser come out like a week after the name reveal?

About 2 weeks. And the Superbowl is in 2 weeks. Hype confirmed.

I like it. It’s growing on me, the same way “The Force Awakens” did after a while. I like the red, but I’m not really a fan of the new logos that emphasize STAR WARS instead of the title. I made this idea for a logo real quick:

Does anyone have scans of the 2006 Limited Edition Trilogy DVD covers?
Time

You have to register there to be able to download the covers - though they are usually ‘decent to very high quality’ covers and have their own forums too.

Don’t you have to pay in order to download uncompressed covers on that site? It’s ridiculous.

I think they have a Gold Membership thing for $10 annually where you can download any of the full size artwork there as often as you want (think the $10 is to help cover costs of hosting all the stuff they have there). Though for regular members you can download them for free (just in a smaller resolution/size).

Those covers above are in 6406x4293 for Gold Members - so IF* you only get half of that size for regular free members they’re still good quality covers for a 5 minute signup and browse around (and you may like it and stick around etc).

(* - I don’t know if you actually do get half size resolution - or smaller or larger than half sizes for free members).

The FAQ on there probably has more info on it - http://www.freecovers.net/faq

Alright, thanks for the info.

I’ve had most (but not all!) of the old covers being posted here, sitting on a hard disk for years. Since the photobucket links will probably eventually die and leave these pages looking rather bare, I have uploaded about 4 GB (so far) to my site. Many of them are the same as posted above, but at a higher resolution.

I’m still generating the pages to host them so not all of them are accessible yet but they will be soon.

Awesome, thanks. Any chance you could upload the archive in its entirety so I don’t have to download everything individually?
