STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

I haven’t had time to go through every comment yet, but here are a few things that WON’T be happening in ROTJ:R -

Extra Boba Fett / Boba Surviving - Boba is going to die ( someone already guessed the one way i’m planning on killing him 😉 )

Revised Crawl - the crawl will be staying the same.

Moving the Dagobah scenes to the beginning of the movie - Where does Luke suddenly disappear to during the briefing? And why does Luke only react strangely towards Leia, that she senses, when he reappears at the briefing and not at all before that? It just doesn’t work moving it to the beginning. You lose, not only Luke’s first appearance, which works perfectly, but other moments that have to be cut to accommodate this.

Lightsaber building scene - see above comment for one reason why. Other reason is that the footage is terrible and the Vader lines are awful ( hacked & pieced together dialogue from the films and not the original recording)

Jerjerrod deleted scenes - No amount of restoration/ work done to that footage can ever make it usable to place alongside HD footage.

Sir Ridley said:

If Adywan is still interested in fixing errors there’s a small one that stood out to me. The rain sound effect on the exterior shot of Yoda’s hut sounded a bit loud and “robotic” to me, like it was played in a big metal box. I watched it in stereo, so it might be an issue that appears when the surround sound is downmixed into two channels. If the same rain sound is played in different channels but with a slight delay this might cause a strange robotic echo effect.

That bit wasn’t touched. It the same on the Blu-Ray

While it will be next year at least before i write up all the ideas i had for the PT, this is one thing that was worked on. It was to be included in the Complete Saga trailer i had planned, but when decided not to do the PT, it was scrapped and never properly finished, so is still in its very rough stages.

Wow, lots to go over in such a short space of time. I can’t reply to each and every one so i’ll just go through a few…

TylerSWalters said:

Personally, I’d like to see the SE “Victory Celebration” music kept intact instead of “Yub Nub.” Coming from a composer, the “Victory Celebration” feels more climactic and conclusive than “Yub Nub.” It simply sounds like a finale.

I hate the Victory Celebration music. It doesn’t fit with the style of music heard in the OT. If they were going to change it, then it should have been a mroe orchestral piece, not some new age hippy trippy pan pipe style music. And the “ya ya ya” vocal bits in it scream the end of TPM to me. Hated that music also. I was never keen on Yub Nub either but i still prefer it over the SE version. But chances are none of them will be in the ending of ROTJ:R, or at least not in their current form. The whole end celebration may only be featured in a short section, with a new ending. Not going to say any more until i do some tests to see if my ideas work though.

mfastx said:

One scene that is jarring for me is when Luke chops Vader’s arm off, he’s obviously just wearing an fake “stump”. Is there any way to shorten the limb so it looks a little more realistic?

Yeh, that’s going to be fixed.

DominicCobb said:

One question, if you’re adding female pilots to the battle, does that mean finally giving a female voice to the one already there? Also, are we to assume including deleted scenes are out of the equation?

Yes, a female voice will be reinstated for that pilot. The deleted scenes for ROTJ, for the most part, are very low quality. No amount of cleaning and upscaling could get those shots acceptable for a HD film. This includes all of the Jerjerrod scenes. The only ones that have really any chance of fitting in are the Falcon interior scenes.

oh_riginal said:

An idea I had a long time back was to have a long shot with no cuts showing the Falcon flying through the battle, shooting down Ties and such, while dodging fire from enemy ships. It would be similar in style to the intro scene of Anakin and Obi Wan entering the Coruscant battle in ROTS. This would be an epic way to showcase that Lando is a helluva pilot in his own right and that he knows that ship as well, if not better, than Han. It could end with a cut to Lando in the cockpit pointing out that the Star Destroyers aren’t firing.

i never liked the opening to ROTS. It’s just too long winded. The OT is more focused on short cuts, which work much better than overly long ones.

Holko said:

I’d start with the color-correction of the BluRay first, with small corrections like the lightsabers, shot flips, officer ranks ans continuity errors fixed, then release it. That way, we get a holdover, and we also have a common source to use when we get upset you removed beloved Ewok stunts, Victory Celebration or anything like that.

No, sorry, I’m not interested in releasing an unfinished version.

gazzatrek said:

  1. 'my main niggle with ROTJ (apart from the ‘slapstick’ Ewoks!) 'has always been Boba Fett’s ‘comedy death’… the whole thing just doesn’t feel like a good ‘end’ for such a popular and supposedly deadly character…(?)

Boba won’t be getting that ridiculous death.

INVAR said:

One suggestion is that since Dave Filoni confirms that Captain Rex is the White bearded old rebel guy at the bunker, I wonder if there is a way to get an audio comm announcement in the rebel hangar bay for him to report to the shuttle ala the line in Rogue One for General Sendulla? A little fanboy service, yes… but fitting.

As to a ‘perfect’ Falcon model - have you seen this Perfect Grade baby from Bandai?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073ZRGX6T/

1/72 scale which puts it slightly bigger than the less-than -perfect Fine Molds one.

There have been some great modelers who tricked out the Hasbro Hero Falcon with a lot of aftermarket parts, but the time to do that right is a 6-month to a full year project.

Not keen on the whole “Rex on Endor” thing. It’s something i won’t be hinting at in ROTJ:R

The “Perfect Grade” falcon is the same scale as the fine molds. I need to go 1/48 at least for this edit. Plus that’s the ANH version anyway. As for how long the modification to the Hasbro would take, i can leave the hangar shots until later so i have no problem with how long the models for this will take. I estimate late next year. Plenty of things to do in the mean time.

ChainsawAsh said:

I guess one big question we should ask Ady before making a bunch of radical suggestions is:

Do you intend for ROTJ:R to be like ANH:R and ESB:R, in that it’ll be the “Special Edition that should have been,” or do you intend to make more dramatic editing decisions this time around?

There will be a lot more editorial changes with this one than the other two.

Jani-wan said:

sansuni said:

Ewoks … They are absolutely ridiculous and only exist to appeal kids and to sell toys.

Wrong. It’s an urban legend. Absolutely nothing to do with kids and toys.
They only exist because Chewbacca got a main role, therefore they could not be Wookies anymore, as they were in early drafts.
Since it is impossible to replace Ewoks with Wookies, getting rid of Ewoks is getting rid of Star Wars, as they were always part of it, from the very first draft.

Wrong, not an urban legend at all. Although it’s true that about the reasons why they weren’t wookiees, the fact about their design remains true that their design was deliberately altered to make them look like Teddy Bears. Their original design was more vicious, but george wanted to sell toys (where the real money is made). Originally they didn;t even have the head-dress, so looked exactly like Teddy bears. The head dress was only added during production because they had to cut a hole in the back of the head for cooling purposes. He also refused to have Han killed off because “no one wants to buy a toy of a dead character”

Jani-wan said:

There is nothing plausible in TFA. That is a mess.

I do not trust Disney anymore. First they made a terribly bad, than a mediocre movie, so they are 0 for 2 right now. Im afraid a cool Disney Star Wars movie is unrealistic expectation at this point.

Why anyone cares about ‘Canon’? It is a Disney business move to make more money, and has nothing to do with what Star Wars is or should be.

Please can you keep this Disney bashing crap out of this thread. It plagues too many thread now by the usual suspects and i don;t want it infecting this one too. Plus the canon thing was a Lucas marketing tool to make money, in place LONG before the Disney buy out. Personally i’m loving the new Star Wars films so far. Heads and tales above the crap PT.

Editroid said:

Here’s my list of suggestions:

  1. Maybe one less use of “my master” during the scene when Vader tells Palpatine about Luke being on Endor. To me, it sounds a little repetitive to hear him say that for two sentences in a row.
  2. Either shorten or remove the scene with the scout troopers chasing the Ewok on speeder bikes.
  3. Reanimate Palpatine’s Force lightning, and don’t give it as much of a glow.
  4. When Luke takes Vader’s mask off, make the top of Anakin’s head less egg-shaped, but keep his blue eyes and leave the eyebrows off as shown in the official 2004 DVD onwards.

2 - that is going to be shortened
3 - Why? Nothing wrong with the glow.
4 - planning on doing something about the egg head if possible.

Editroid said:

The Prequel Trilogy is here to stay as a permanent part of the Star Wars canon whether you like them or not.

Well they’re no longer part of the Revisited saga, so… 😉

Editroid said:

I wonder when Adywan will look at all of these suggestions and tell us what he thinks?

i can’t believe i have to address this thing once again. I asked you nicely before and yet you are doing it AGAIN. Why do i have to reply to things instantaneously for you? And then, when i don’t immediately reply, you send me constant messages on facebook, comment here, email me, all in a very short space of time. And emailing me to say nothing more than “A lot of people have been proposing suggestions for ROTJ Revisited on OT.com. I suggest you look at them and post your thoughts” will only go to get you ignored. How dare you demand that i reply, especially to a thread that i only started 3 damn days ago. A lot has been posted , yes, but it takes time to read through and reply and i keep my weekends mainly for myself and family and away from matters of the edit. Please stop it.

Ady, there’s some funky low-frequency color noise in the background of the shot at 00:24:35.
I noticed it when watching on my projector and it was a lot more visible there than it is now on my monitor but it’s still there and it took me right out of the movie.
The artifacts are likely to have already been there in the BD but they were brought out when you added a more yellow glow from the sun.
A simple low-frequency denoise pass should solve it nicely without affecting the overall detail. I have some great tools for this, so if you send me an uncompressed version of that shot, I’d be happy to give it a go for you 😃

Thanks Harmy. Checked the project file and there was an extra layer that was enabled at low opacity. re-rendered that and it seems fine now. And the clouds you mentioned, it is HD footage but seems that changing the colour brought out this effect. I’ve done what you said and added a slight blur. Thanks again 😃

ROTJ: REVISITED – PRODUCTION BEGINS & DONATION DRIVE

After a very short break (well, almost) from completing ESB:R, I will now be starting work on ROTJ:R . Although the full list of fixes and changes will still take time to compile, here are some of the things I have planned so far :- ( A full list will be updated in this post at a later date)

Add more B-Wings/ Pilots to Endor Space battle
Replace the lower quality matte painting with miniatures/ digitally enhanced versions
Remove the slapstick Ewok moments during the battle.
Add more rebel troop action to Endor ground battle
Remove the 2011 addition of Vader saying “No” during the climactic scene.
Remove “Jedi Rocks” and the additions of the Special Edition in that scene
Remove the Sarlaac SE beak
Add female pilots
Replace the Tydirium shuttle with a more cargo based shuttle (new design)
Re-rotoscope the lightsabers
Larger ground and space battle
New super-stardestroyer destruction.
Complete new colour grade
And more…

Thanks to all the things I learned doing ESB:R, with the miniatures etc., I now know what can and can’t be done, so things can now move faster.

The first part of the production will be the live action shoots. This includes the B-Wing pilots and the Endor ground action. While we’re pretty much covered for costumes for the California shoot for Endor (apart from some props) , the B-wing pilots costumes and Cockpits need to be made from scratch. This will include 4 costumes and the same number of helmets and 1 full size cockpit, with interchangeable parts that can swapped around so that it doesn’t look like the same set used for all 4 pilots. Auditions for the needed pilots will be opening up shortly, but more on that once the time comes. Although there are costumers already out there with B-wing costumes that people have made themselves, It would be impossible to utilise what’s already out there because I need to have them identical and also because It would be a logistical nightmare to find people close to where I live that have the costume and can also act. So the only course of action is to create them myself. Another thing is the helmets. The original B-wing helmets are probably the worse helmet in the entire series. They’re not even helmets, just ear muffs. So these are getting a tweak. And, as we don;'t see the original helmets close up in the film anyway, redesigning them is no problem.

There are also a few props that will need to be made for the Endor shoot and ship them to California.

The second part will be the Miniatures. The main Matte paintings being replaced are the Home One Hangar scenes. The paintings just don’t hold up well and the scenes with Lando and Han have never looked any good. So a 1/48 scale miniature is being created for these shots. Luckily there are some X-wing, Y-wing and B-wing kits available in that scale, but the A-wings will need to be made from scratch by the looks of things. For the Falcon I will be using the 1/48 scale Hasbro hero play-set. That thing is a great little toy. Very close to the 32” inch studio model in terms of size, but perfect to be in scale with the other ships for the miniature. We will be 3D printing parts and scratch building other bits to kit out this Falcon to make it fit for filming. People that have already modified this toy know just how amazing this can look.

Now the shuttle Tydirium is going to be changed. One thing that has always bugged me is that the same model ship that is used for dignitaries, is also being used to transport cargo and troops. This ship needs to be a different model. More in line with a cargo shuttle, similar to what was seen in Rogue One and the troop transport in the SE ANH. So a 1/48 scale ship needs to be built and then it’s digital double for the flying scenes.

Now this unfortunately isn’t going to be cheap, so I really need your help. There will be some items that was used for ESB:R coming up for sale soon (Hangar set pieces, model ships etc.) , but this will only cover a small percentage of what is needed to accomplish this. (The Blueprints book posted earlier on the page is our 3rd unity directors own personally purchased copy that was used for reference until I managed to pick up a copy myself, so the funds he raises from the sale of that won’t be going towards Revisited as there may only be need to the first and second units this time around). While I have a small amount of materials left over from ESB:R, I don;t have anywhere near enough to be able to start.

The things I will need the funds for will include:

Lot’s of silicone and various resins, wood, electrics for the cockpit, material for costumes, vaccum-formed helmet goggles, fibreglass, set dressings, lots of various styrene sheets and pieces etc. etc. Now every penny raised goes into the cost of the materials. None of it ever goes to anything other than this. Everything ranging from travel expenses to the added cost of electric bills etc. comes out of our own pockets. We do not take a penny of donations for personal use or for anything outside of the cost of materials. Never have, never will.

So the ROTJ Donation Drive is now officially open…

If you can donate then you can donate through Paypal. You can visit the wordpress site and follow the links on the right of the page to the paypal donations page from there :

https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/

Now, after completing ESB:R, I didn’t fully take a break. I started work on the colour correction side of things for ANH:R HD. I will post some screenshots of its progress over the coming weeks. I can only do so much at the moment thought because all the hard drives are almost full. With all the extra content for the ESB:R Blu-ray to sort out before I can even start that, I can’t wipe them to clear up some space. So I will have to get some extra drives/ replacements. The PC is also playing up, but I didn’t want to mention that because this started late last year while completing ESB. I was preying it would last and luckily is did. I don;t know how much longer its going to be any good to use. Lots of crashing in after effects. A complete system wipe didn’t clear that up though, so its looking hardware based. Add to that, the on-board USB ports are buggy, with the USB3 ones failed completely. Damn Asus board. So part of the donations may need to go towards new board, memory and processor along with large capacity drives. Luckily the power supply seems fine, and I recently upgraded the graphics card to a much better one that helps with speeding the rendering. It’s annoying that the new revision of the 2011 sockets won’t accept the 6 core i7 that I have presently, so I have no choice but to get a new 6 core (higher cores are way too expensive) to go with the new board/ memory. But the drives will be one the first things out of all the materials/ parts for me to be able to start ROTJ:R

I will post a progress bar for donations on regular intervals so you will be able to see how things are going. Once the donation target is reached and all the materials are purchased , then donations will be closed. After working out the cost of materials for the live action and model shoots, it’s looking like just shy of £6,000 needed in addition to what I can raise myself at the moment 😦 . So, if you can help, then it would be greatly appreciated.

So it all starts now. On Force Friday…

ROTJ:R & ANH:R HD are now in production. Let’s hope this time things go more smoothly…

And now onto the last thing…

This will be my last edit. It’s obvious to me now that it is likely not possible to do all of the things I wanted to do to the prequels. Not without a huge budget. I don;t have the funds myself to do these projects, and I don’t want to keep having to rely on the generosity of others. I also just don’t have the love for those films, that I have with the OT, for me to spend years working on. So the Revisited saga will be episodes 4-6. These edits take up so much of my life as it is. To end up working on 3 more after this one (and recreating ANH in HD too) would take me another decade at least. It’s time for me to know when to stop. And that time is as soon as ROTJ:R & ANH:R HD are complete and all formats released.

Kennedy worse than Lucas.
Time

generalfrevious said:

What good has Kathleen Kennedy done for this franchise? All she did was exploit fans’ nostalgia for the OT, while at the same time doubling down on not releasing them. Common sense should have left SW alone. Bit where are we now? Kennedy has given us a loose remake and a fanservice-heavy spinoff. It’s apparent she’s stifling any creativity by firing directors and keeping on hacks only because they make money. Of the next four films coming up, only TLJ would come close to not being some reference-heavy glorified fan film (I’m not buying into the hype). At least with Lucas you got fascinating failures instead of marvel-lite like today’s Star Wars movies. By the time the Obi-wan movie comes out this franchise will have TEN mediocre installments in it!

Stifling creativity? So far only the Han Solo films directors have been fired and that’s because they were turning the film into something completely different than they were hired to do. None of the other directors were fired. The so called “Gareth Edwards had nothing to do with the reshoots” articles were bull. The proof is there in the final film that he was still there. One of the final scenes to be filmed for the film was the vader attack/ Tantive IV escape. Originally there was no battle, it just escaped as Vader’s stardestroyer obliterated the Mon Calmiari ship. So, if Gareth was replaced, as the articles suggested ( all from a supposed on set report of another director in charge, when it was nothing more than the same thing that happened during star wars when Gary Kurtz ended up directing a lot of the scenes due to time constraints), then how was here the one who pulled the lever to release the Tantive? Also Edwards wanted to kill off all the characters but originally shot the film with a completely different ending where most survived because he never thought that they would allow him to kill them all off. But they did and gave the go ahead for extensive reshoots ( plus because the original tower was not part of the main building and, when viewing the cut, realised that combining the two buildings was a better idea as the final battle was going on way too long).

To say that Kennedy is stifling any creativity is just not true. If that were the case then there is no way she would have given the go ahead for the R1 reshoots. If that were George he would have just said it could be “fixed in editing”. Here’s what Edwards said about the final scene:

““He arrives and obliterates the Calamari ship, and then the blockade runner gets out just in time and he pursues the blockade runner. And then Jabez was like, ‘I think we need to get Darth on that ship,’ and I thought, yeah, that’s a brilliant idea and would love to do it, but there’s no way they’re going to let us do it. It’s a big number and we had, what, like 3 or 4 months before release. Kathy [Kennedy] came in and Jabez thought, f*ck it, and pitched her this idea, and she loved it. Suddenly within a week or two we were at Pinewood shooting that scene.””

If that is stifling creativity then i wish more studio bosses would do it. And if you are accusing her of this just because of the firing of the Han Solo film directors then that is NOT stifling creativity. That is protecting a well known character along with the studios investment. By all accounts they were turning him into a joke. instead of injecting the Star Wars type humour, that was sorely lacking from the prequels, they were turning it into a full blown buddy comedy movie. Or would you have preferred that han Solo be turned into a complete joke? George almost did that with Return of the Jedi.

As for not releasing the OT, then i didn’t know you had seen the sale contact between Lucas and Disney. You haven’t? Oh, well then, how do you know that part of the contract was that they had to agree that they could not alter his films in any way, including reverting them back to their pre SE state? That they had to remain as they are in this final versions? At least until after his death? Truth is, none of us know.

I never heard of anyone having a problem knowing who the Emperor was talking about in all the years prior to the change. The SE additions are just pointless exposition. There is just no need for it.

benduwan, that website you posted those pictures to is horrendous. They’re so small i can even see most of them. But a couple of thing you seem to point out as mistakes aren’t. Like the X-wing engines for one. I have said already that the engines will be their proper colour when i get around to redoing ANH and the Tantive IV engines are an orange colour and not red.

I think i need to clarify something i said though. When i asked for people to point out any mistakes they see in the video, i meant FX errors ( caused by something i have done) , spelling etc, not continuity errors that may or may not still be there. I’m not interested in those. I’ve done all the ones i wanted to or could do.

every time i think i’m going to be able to take this break, i get sucked right back in again. 😉 But that’s it now. Messages and comments will be replied to after the end of this month. I’m taking this last week or so of August off.

So on the Blu-ray release, one of the better changes (in my opinion) was that George Lucas went back and adjusted the line so that Palpatine says, “The son of Anakin Skywalker must not become a Jedi.” Makes this make so much more sense.

Adywan changed the line back to the original — why? I actually preferred the version on the Blu-ray release, and I think new viewers to The Empire Strikes Back would appreciate it as well. It is a confusing line.

I changed nothing there. He still says “The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi” on the Blu-Ray release

Why does he say “ok we’re going, we’re going” in reaction to something that simply is not there?

I had always assumed R2 was anxious because the base was being overrun by the empire & they appear to be among the last to be leaving.
Everyone else around them do look pretty calm though as they’re packing their bags, perhaps it’s a different exit from the base that’s behind them 😃

Cheers, Paul

Yeah you can look at it that way and I will also accept it’s very feasible but R2-D2 is worried I got the quote wrong “Don’t worry… We’re going we’re going” and it does work but you know it just leaves you wondering when you know some facts and ROTJ does not really leave you wondering at all. it’s all pretty self explanatory no mystery.

ESB is for the most part pretty well un-open to interpretation and totally explained but when you delve a bit deeper you just wonder on a few things and I think this is one of them and probably the insert don’t help. Just saying it feels like it should be in reaction to “Something” and although all that has passed is not all good it does often feel like stuff is not quite right or something missing. “Who knows” is the real answer and that would be the people that were making it including Lucus.

This was never a mystery to me, not even as a child. It’s always been pretty clear that he is responding to R2’s anxious warblings. It’s like when you’re nagging your wife that she’s going to make you late for a dinner party and she responds with some annoyance as she puts on her last earring,“Don’t worry, dear, we’re going, we’re going.” I don’t need to ask Mucus (sic) for clarification.

100% agreed and I feel the same way, but when you know something was filmed afterwards it leaves you wondering and there is nothing immediate to worry about. I just wonder if their was more to worry about, I hope you get that it’s not like this film ran out of money or anything like that… Sorry but it did run out of money…

The didn’t take the full scale X-wing with them to Finse. All that was taken was a partial nose cone of the X-wing. It’s not something that was just filmed after to alter or fill something. It was just logistically unfeasible to shoot the full scene on location. So they filmed Luke and the pilots at Finse and then the shots of Luke getting into the full size X-wing later.

Now i’m going back to my supposed 2 weeks off the net…

One minor mistake in the end credits.
You forgot to include “Lighting Equipment and Crew from LEE ELECTRIC.”

Crap. Just checked the original psd file and i had that layer disabled. Thanks for spotting that.

The things in the credits and the two shots with the strange masks that have been pointed out so far have been fixed . If any other mistakes are spotted, then please let me know

Is anyone noticing some odd overlaid imagery at 1:45:17? It looks like a mask transparency was left visible during the scene. Is this just me?

I’ve just checked, and you are right. Strange thing is, when checking in the after effects project file, there is no mask that could be causing that. It has me baffled.

Amazing work, Adywan! I never expected any less. Worth the wait!!! I don’t have any complaints other than that my name is spelled wrong in the credits, but it’s not a big deal.

Ooops, sorry. 😦

I believe Ben Burtt’s name was misspelled in the end credits as “Benn Burtt.”

These errors will be fixed for the Blu-Ray.

Why did you keep “A News Corporation Company” in the 20th Century Fox logo? The current logo, as of 2013, doesn’t have it anymore.

Because i wanted to. 😉

I’m glad you guys are enjoying it 😃
