I don’t think there is one available for TESB or ROTJ as far as I know, but I would like to know more about these.
I’m interested in this but without the English dubs. Just the OG Japanese broadcast versions uncensored with Japanese audio and English subtitles.
Or maybe not.
If you want those, I suggest looking for the recent Winxbloom release.

Is this rendered in 1080p or 4K?
A bit of aliasing caught my eye.
Is the audio on the Laserdiscs any better than the original 2.0 mixes of the series or FWWM on the Blu-rays?
He shared a lot of his scripts I believe.

I’m watching it right now and it looks cropped.
This post doesn’t really answer your question but I had fun making it.
This is an all-timer.
Now THIS is shitposting…
I concur that the '97 mix sounds better than the '11 mix. There’s even Cinema DTS soundtracks for them out there that you can utilize.
Bringing up people’s boners tends to overwhelm whatever the post was actually about.
These off-topic discussions are driving me to drink! I need a stiff one.
Nothing like a Long Island Iced Tea to really get you going
He gave just an idea - you know, we were talking, and he said: “if you want theatrical accurate colors, why don’t you use a print scan instead?” - he doesn’t even know that is actually possible! 😃
Is that in the wild? Dunno, but if someone is aware of it, please drop me a PM, I would be curious to give it a try…
It’s found on your favorite organ…
If you ask me, this really needs to get an HD upgrade. Take note that the Special Longer Version is my second favorite version of the film, and the one version of the film that introduced me to the original Star Trek crew.
Bill Hunt says Disney has a 4K scan of SOTS but have no plans for it yet.
“FYI, a couple of other bits of interesting information that Chuck passed on to us from last night’s Wexler event: About 100 of the 400 or so classic Disney animated shorts have been scanned in 4K (at Warner) and restored. Also, new 4K restoration work has been done on Disney’s Song of the South to fix certain shots previously out of alignment (because of a faulty camera used during the original photography), though no public release is currently planned. Fascinating”
(I know this story has somewhat groundbreaking info on Star Wars, but I want to keep on topic).
He shall double his efforts!
I have the french ld and the Japanese ld. I can do a rip of them both and put them on the spleen. I’m off to the states for a few weeks for Christmas. I’ll try to remember it when i get back though 😉
Any progress on this?
Talk to poita about acquiring prints. He’s the best person here to talk to about that sort of thing.
Harmy used upscaled laserdiscs from Team Blu. We don’t yet have a time frame for any new Blu releases so I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.
I watched this last night Dreamaster, and I wanted to thank you for this amazing improvement to the Grindhouse! This is now my go-to version of ESB until Poita’s restoration becomes available. Well done!
I’m really happy this regrade has been so well received! And it’s intention was exactly that, a bit of fun and education until the amazing work of others comes to light of day with these Poita/Harmy/Adywan versions rock our socks off later.
Does he even have any more 97age than that?
I believe that’s the only one he has.
The only missing element is a scan of some 35mm prints. Williarob has Reel 1 of Star Wars scanned, but I don’t think anything else is scanned.
So from what I’ve been seeing around there is going to be one final release of each film which will be 3.0 using the 35mm prints that poita is getting and these will be in 1080p (or higher)?
Is this the case or is this going to be an ongoing project forever?
It’ll be 1080p because it will be the blu-ray merged with those scans, and nothing of lower quality included.
No one can ever say for sure what the final release will be for projects like these. If you look at anyone’s project threads here, you’ll see them suggest something is a final release, followed by years of updates on continuing work and additional releases, etc. There’s always room for improvement, so it’ll be done when Harmy is completely sick of it. 😃
(but yes, 3.0 is a ways off and no one has ever suggested anything to come after 3.0)
Don’t forget about the 2004 HDTV version for replacing 2011 Blu-ray changes.
I’m actually thinking about releasing the next version with english tracks only and then including links for all the different dubs and instructions on how to add them.
Love this idea.
As do I.
As will I.
