Before the expiration of the $1,000 challenge offer tomorrow, 12th November, please can I take this opportunity to encourage anyone who enjoys Ady’s Revisited project, but has not yet donated, to do so? There is still time to have your donation matched by the very generous offer made by 1,000 Challenge. There has never been a better time to donate to Revisited, as your donation will effectively be doubled at no extra expense to you.

I would like to thank 1,000 Challenge for his kindness and generosity in making this offer, and of course also Adywan for his continued hard work, dedication, talent and generosity at making and sharing the Revisited films with the rest of us.

I really enjoy and appreciate Ady’s work, and so I have just made a donation as part of the $1,000 challenge. Please consider doing likewise. Thank you.

Just donated. Thanks for the reminder!

I think some of you puppet lovers are seeing them through nostalgia glasses.

Yoda was brilliant. But compare him to some of those ROTJ puppets…it’s not even close.

Even the bad puppets have a charm to them that’s hard to ignore, but suddenly becomes easy to undervalue when you’re trying to “fix” things to make everything “perfect.” It’s like looking back on photos of the Halloween costumes my mom made for us in the 80s. They weren’t perfect, but they’re still fascinating to look at in a way that my friends’ storebought plastic costumes never were. Maybe you’re right and it is nostalgia, but I have a soft spot for the bad ROTJ puppets because there’s something endearing about the handmade craft quality to them that shiny CGI just doesn’t have.

I am curious to what extent ady means when he calls this a fan edit.

With ESBR and ANHR (Purist) you had basically the same films, edit-wise (besides small, almost unnoticeable adjustments), with the idea being a sort of special special edition, meaning mostly visual fixes. I wonder if the special special edition changes to ROTJ inherently change the edit in larger ways (i.e. alternate Boba death, additional and/or different pilots and fighters, additional and/or different battle scenes on Endor, etc.). Basically I’m curious if there’s really much of any editing planned beyond what is necessary to implement the new elements and maintain a good pace.

I’ll take it either way, of course.

I think we can expect to see a few changes in the story that go further than ANHR and ESBR - like a different death for Fett, some heavier line trimming, maybe even whole sequences cut or restructured in the battle of Endor. What I don’t think we’ll see is Ady reorganizing the film the way it’s been recommended here - cutting whole scenes, moving scenes around, adding entirely new scenes, changing introductions, etc. I don’t know, that’s just my gut feeling. Just because ROTJR is getting the heaviest editing job of the Revisited saga doesn’t mean it’s going to be a radical prequel-style edit.

A kind Twitter-er has made some before-and-afters for the Battle of Hoth:

That’s cool! It would be awesome if there was a way to do a mouseover effect like screenshotcomparison.com but with video or animated gif.

My favourite thing at the moment might be the moving graphics superimposed on the glass in the Hoth command center. It still feels like the same shot but with a modern touch. Great job. It’s also something that could believably have been done in 1980 via practical means.

Here is a comparison of this shot:

http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/114614

You can’t get a sense of how it moves from the screenshot but it really gives the actress the appearance of looking at something specific on the glass. It sort of has a “locking on” animation while they are targeting the Star Destroyer with the ion cannon and then turns red when they fire.

I added the comparison to my earlier post.
One of my favorite additions too!

Of course, I think one of the most important changes of all, aside from the color correcting, is fixing the changing thickness of the lightsabers. If little else was fixed, I’m grateful for that consistency!

5 days down, at most 25 more days left. Cannot wait for this edit

You’ve waited 9 years, surely you can wait a little longer.

I can,but whats the harm in having some sort of count down.

Because the guy doesn’t need the added pressure of a countdown, perhaps?

I’m a bit of a geek for all the miniature set shots and explanations from Weta and LucasArts so I hope Adywan includes some of these behind the scenes shots of his work in the special features. It’s a lot of work to record ones development of props but having had the pleasure of seeing what he’s developed it would be great to see the effort celebrated and credited. I don’t care too much for knowing how he does it, trade secrets etc but a photo series like the recent Wampa shots are really awesome.

Same here. I really hope there are some timelapse videos of model-building and assembly.

I show my wife the pics Ady posts on FB and she is always blown away… “This guy is just a fan doing this in his house?? Why doesn’t he work for Disney yet?!”

again i’m sorry 😦

Just take a deep breath. I’m sure that you mean well, but you’re clearly are on the autism spectrum and have trouble recognizing when you have crossed the line and upset/bothered people. The best thing you can do is just stop posting for awhile. Be like me, a big fan who is patient and quiet. Your patience will be rewarded. 😃

Right now, silence is the best way to say “sorry.” Continuing the discussion any further will only make things worse.
