4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I understand, but who knows, what moles are in these forums, looking for ideas on how to change the OT even more. I guess I have my Tinfoil Jedi robe on.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

It would be incredibly bad to CGI Yoda in ESB & ROTJ, and insulting to Frank Oz’s contribution to the Original Trilogy with his puppeteering skills. Also, a CGI Yoda in ESB would ruin the original look when you first meet him.
Your first introduction of Yoda, is that of a Jedi Hermit, whose been cooped up on Degobah for 20+ years. He looks dishevelled, crazy, and a little kooky. If they CGI Yoda in ESB & ROTJ, all those characteristics will disappear, and we’ll have a sterilised Yoda, like in the PT.

CGI Yoda works for the PT, because it’s newer, and the technology was there to do a great job of presenting a noble, gentile, wise, Jedi Master, Yoda. But, in the OT, it won’t add anything, but subtract the true essence of Jedi Hermit, Yoda, that everyone fell in love with, when they first met him with Luke.

Anakin ghost old vs young

Sebastian Shaw Force Ghost as it just makes more sense in every way.

I agree. Anakin was like 50 at that point so yeah.

Exactly, makes the most sense. Especially since, Anakin was still ageing in his Vader suit. The Dark Side will twist, corrupt you, but doesn’t inhibit you from ageing. Also, once they learn how to Force Ghost, they can choose how they want to look like.
Older Anakin wouldn’t want to appear as his younger, whinier self, because he realised how annoying he really was.

Finally, Luke wouldn’t know who was standing next to Yoda & Obi Wan.

When you were introduced to Star Wars for the first time
Time

It was sometime during the mid 80’s. I remember my uncle showing me a scene from one of the Star Wars movies on VHS. My parents had a copy of ESB recorded on VHS. Though, being a kid in the 80’s, I probably saw ROTJ more often than ANH or ESB.
I don’t have an exact timeframe, but I’m glad I saw the OT, unaltered, and that’s what sticks out in my memories.

What if Disney decided to remake the OT?

There’s no need to remake the OT. Just leave it the way it was… before all the hideous changes.

Funny, that the list of remakes on the WIKI, mentions the Abbot & Costello Meet the Invisible Man. When it’s really a comedy/parody of the original Universal Monster movie. That’s sorta like saying Spaceballs, is a remake of Star Wars.

ROTJ is the best Star Wars film... discuss!
Time

I don’t know why people would hate ROTJ. It finishes the OT, and has a nice array of characters, battles, comedy and no Hayden Christensen (well until George mucked it all up).

Reminds me of another Trilogy, the Godfather Trilogy. Not a lot of people like the 3rd movie. It may not be as perfect as 1 or 2, but it finishes the story and has variety of characters and great music like the other 2.
Didn’t want to “spoil” it, just in case some people here haven’t seen it yet.

The Star Wars Holiday Special 1978
Time

I’ve seen in twice. It’s an oddity, with a cast of classic comedians: Art Carney, Harvey Korman and Bea Arthur. I guess it had the same cheesiness like all the other Variety Hour TV Shows back in the 70’s. Maybe I’ll show the Holiday Special to a few of my friends and family.

@Lord Haseo, Good to hear not everyone seemingly “hates” the start of the ST with TFA.

Are you kidding ? Well, here on OT.com the majority loves TFA. But it’s not (or “no longer”) the case in the outside world. How many times have I heard these past few weeks “R1 rocks, TFA sucked so much, at last a good SW movie !” ? Too many. People are now accepting the fact that TFA is PT quality (even less…) with an OT skin (people IRL, don’t forget, not here). Pretty sure next december will be “Episode 8 rocks, R1 sucked so much, at last a good SW movie !”…

Oh ok, my mistake, I thought there was more hate with TFA. I’m glad that there isn’t, because I think it was a nice change after the PT. Sure, the PT is not perfect, but still deserves to be seen.

Are the Prequels Even Worth Watching Once?
Time

I think the PT should be watched, atleast once. It gives backstory to our beloved Star Wars Universe.
Is it perfect, no, it’s not, but deserves a chance to be seen by anyone who wishes to watch them.
Should the PT be seen before OT? No, it shouldn’t, since it would ruin a spoil a lot of the key moments in the OT.

I’ll probably be destroyed for what I wrote, but whatever, it’s the Internet.

@Lord Haseo, Good to hear not everyone seemingly “hates” the start of the ST with TFA. Why are you worried about IX? Is it because of the death of Carrie Fisher, and how she was supposed to have a bigger role in it? If that’s the case, I just hope they do a good job with it.

Sorry for veering off topic… I have to say, the begging of R1 was a bit abbrupt, and could’ve been longer to setup the scene, before it starts off almost immediately with the Empire finding their lost scientist.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

A 4K restoration done with Disney Dollars sounds impressive. If restoration entails using the original film and no SE.
