Hi You_Too. Thanks for your interest. No, it's not done yet. I tend to do it in waves when I feel like it. It takes a lot of time. Sometimes something happens that demotivates me because I have to redo something, and so I stop for awhile. Since you showed some interest, I might start again soon. When do you plan to release the 97 SE blu-ray set?
Jetrell Fo - I am very interested in the DTS trailer audio. There are two versions of this trailer. Do you know which one you have, or both? If anything would really get me motivated, it would be having an awesome soundtrack to go with this.
Here are the two versions I am aware of. The part where Jabba is talking to Han is different.
From what I can tell, the first trailer link is the "President's Day" trailer...I believe IT is on the 2004 Bonus Disc. Of course the second link above is from the LD. I believe the U.S. LD set had 3 trailers total.
The DTS SE discs each contain trailer audio for the SE. I will have to listen to them and sort em out for you.
From my notes, there were three trailers...
TEASER-The first one was from Spring/Summer 1996 and was part of the Sansweet-Lucasfilm fan roadshows that culminated with the screening of the trailer... Probably an early cut, and never made it to theaters. I have a fan recording/bootleg of this somewhere. This one had the alternate Jabba shot, "President's Day weekend", "On Feb 14 Star Wars, followed soon after by the ESB and then ROTJ". I think it was only shown a few times in public.
TRAILER A-This trailer had a limited summer release in 1996 in a few select markets. According to someone who worked at a theater, these trailers were hand delivered and picked up later by FOX representatives. This trailer had the updated Jabba scene. I believe the rest, including the audio was unchanged from the first one.
TRAILER B-This version came out in Nov/Dec 1996 and ran through Jan 1997. In this version, the dates have firmed up (Jan 31st, Feb 14th and Mar 7th) and there was a new line added by Princess Leia "Here they come!".
It's doubtful that a DTS 35mm print of the first trailer exists in the wild... The bonus disc is probably the best and only source available.
Of course there were ESB SE(Trailer C) and ROTJ SE(Trailer D) too...
