Can someone make a DVD or BD of just the digital only extras from nust the Target TFA and all 7 Disney Movie Anywheres? That’s all I’m interested in. SD/HD doesn’t matter to me.

I already did that. The problem is where to host it.

Ah OK. I thought you were still gathering material for your 10 disc extras mega-set, or whatever. That’s just way too many discs for me. All of this would fit on one disc, correct?

The theatrical cut of The Podrace scene, 12 minutes

Conversations and Discoveries from the Inside, 27 minutes, prequel trilogy

Conversations and Discoveries from the Inside, 39 minutes, original trilogy

Over 20 minutes of TFA Target-exclusive bonus content

That’s all. Are there any itunes/ Google/ whatever non-Target TFA exclusives?

There is one new iTunes only bonus feature:

I am pretty sure that at some point Disney will do a copyright takedown notice, on this!!! If you guys are reading this after that has happened or otherwise need to be able to download this, then please feel free to pm me for download links!!!

“Honest Teaser - The Force Awakens”, from 2015 ( https://youtu.be/pegJQPIzfs4 ) [this one pokes fun at the prequel trilogy]

“The Hidden Truth Behind Star Wars [Documentary]” ( https://youtu.be/QufZ3CjjODA )

Also, if it would be of interest, I have come across the following:

“Star Wars The Force Awakens Premiere Live” (720p HDTV)

“Star Wars Force Awakens On Set Sky Movies Special” (720p HDTV)

“Conan 2015 12 17 Star Wars The Force Awakens” (720p HDTV)

Also, I Will PM you this to both, a) make sure you see it, & B) to add/give additional info

The first 3/4 is not really official or unique material, aside from the Storybook. Not my interest at all.
The last few are all on later editions.

Okay thanks good to know!!!

You could create a Mega.co.nz account and upload them there.

or you could try MediaFire

I mentioned this in another thread but I might as well post it here. I recorded a TON of stuff myself and I also have all of the EPK files as well. I’m in the process of putting together Blu discs but I have these all as individual files. If anyone has anything to contribute from other countries, please let me know. I’ll post the logs for each disc as I put them together.

JediSith Archives (A "Missing" Blu-ray Special features "Preservation" Idea)
Time

Well if someone/others was/were so kind and willing to help me out with getting hold of the non-official DVD bonus material and someone/others were willing to help me out with the technical area/issues, I would be willing to take this project on.  I would be willing to initially start on it slowly and then pick up the peace a bit in the new year once i have gotten a new external hard drive hopefully for christmas.

 

Would anybody be willing to help?????

JediSith Archives (A "Missing" Blu-ray Special features "Preservation" Idea)
Time

I don't know if this has been brought up before:

I have an awesome preservation/Custom BD idea for the completist out there.

I think we should create a three disc or more (as needed) BD Special Features collection to Supplement the complete saga's Bonus features.

The First Discs would contain the bonus features from the official Prequel trilogy DVDs. We could either create custom menus or recreation /"use still frames" of the original menus on a Custom BD Disc.

The second Disc would contain the Extras from the "Definitive Edition" Laser-disc collection plus the features from the official "Star wars Trilogy" DVD Bonus feature disc on a Custom BD. The Menus could be totally custom menus or recreation/"use of still frames" of/from the original menus.

The third disc (and any additional needed) would contain Documentaries and other features, that we felt would be needed, that are not available on the official BDs. The Menus could be totally custom menus or menus in the style of the original menus from the other discs.
These could be either single or dual layer disc.

I think we should call the project/set of discs:
" The JediSith Archives " .

Also, If you want to see what special features on the official BDs you can go here to read a review that contians a list:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Star-Wars-Blu-ray/14903/#Review

Or you can go here for a more in depth listing of the special features:
http://www.examiner.com/dvd-in-new-york/sept-16-2011-blu-ray-star-wars-the-complete-saga-list-of-special-features

What Do you all think?

I would be willing to help in anyway I could on the project. However, I don't have the best skills in this area, so I would be willing to be a project co-manager/co-leader, If others were willing to work on such a project.

nadcracker and petehammer, there's a guy named "darthtron" I had sent a copy to. He was supposed to forward copies to three other people, but he never let me know if he got the disc or not. I'll PM him and try to find out.

If he doesn't surface, then I'll try to get a copy out to you personally.

Sorry I have not been active in this topic!! I have had some personal issues I have had to deal with, but i am good to help out now. If, 2 or 3 people would like/need a copy please let me know!!!!!

@McFly: I think you should just release your version. You've worked on it for some time now, and I bet you're proud of your version. So just torrent it and get it out! :D

 

@ Darrell Kaiser: I think your version would be great as well. Did you make a DVD of it? Would be great if you could torrent your version as well, so people can choose which version they want (both for me!! :D).

 

Agreed!!!! (that is to say i agree with those statements)

Hello, I'm new to the forum, and a HUGE Indiana Jones fan. I was sent here by Cassidy, who referred me to this greta place.
I have a DVD backup of my Making of Raiders/Great Movie Stunts VHS, but would love to get a copy from the Laserdisc. I assume the video will be much better than my VHS transfer.
Also, I never even KNEW there was a Making of Temple of Doom. Even thought this is old news for you folks, this is tremendous news for me.
If anyone can help me get any Indy stuff on DVD, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
'Blues


I am in a similar boat, in that I am I would like help in getting all of the Indiana Jones "preservation" DVDs that have been created!! Also, I am relatively NEW to Indiana Jones Films, I am a little late to the "game", to the point that I went with family to see Crystal Skull w/o having seen any of thee other Indy films.


So I would appreciate any in the matter!!!!

Thanks,
Darth

p.s. FYI Just thought that y'all might be curious: I have seen ToD since have seen KotCS, and am going to be watching RotLA and TLC before I go see KotCS, again!!!
Well news on you. I've been a fan of Indiana Jones since about 1986 or something. Long-term fan too.


Well I was born in 1985, so I was too young to see the first three in theaters!!!!

So I really don't know all that much about Indy really!!!!

Question: Has someone preserved THE SANTA CLAUSE laserdisc?

Looks like another movie for my "must buy LD" list :/

Most of the ones available at ebay are cheap AND have a BIN price so there's no need to bid. I guess they don't know what they have or they'd charge more....



I Would so love to see this project happen!!!!

also If we could find the TV version with the Phone number as: "1-800-POUND", maybe we could have that as a second audio track option!!!

I Think We could/should call the preservation/project: THE SANTA CLAUSE the 1-800-PRESERVATION-EDITION

-Darth

P.S. I would be willing to help out, if any help is needed just PM me

P.P.S. I really want this project to be completed!!!
