1997 Special Edition, and how can i find it
Time

Oh man I wish I’d seen this thread. I had the same question for months.

Long story short, I captured the 97SE laserdiscs for myself. No edits or alterations, just some 480p 90s Star Wars action. I’m working on setting them up in some shareable fashion.

Oh man, I’d love to check out those upscaled versions! Can never have too many options.

I’d be happy to upload to myspleen. How do I get in? I looked it up and it seems like I have to wait for open registration.

Hey everyone.

First, I commend your work. The despecialized editions are a fantastic version of the trilogy.

I’ve been checking this place out since I decided I couldn’t deal with the post-97 changes. I got into Star Wars with the 97 SE trilogy and prefer to watch that version of the films, bad CG and all. I naturally started by trying to find copies online, since I don’t watch anything on disc. And I joined the few who were bummed to learn that they never even made it onto DVD.

So I went ahead and bought the NTSC laserdisc collection and a laserdisc player. I captured local copies of the movies and all’s well. These are standard def, letterboxed, 640x480 copies. I even kept the laserdisc operation prompts and side flips to make it a true laserdisc experience. It looks rough but this is all about nostalgia for me anyway. Nothing more nostalgic than CRT-quality Star Wars movies.

My question is what’s the best way to contribute these to your efforts, or if it’s even necessary?
