Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

Wow, I just noticed something I personally hadn’t before about the SE (I don’t view it any more than I have to, and got sucked into a clip of Kenobi showing up in SW embedded in some article I was reading), right after Ben says “Hello there” to R2, in the following shot of R2 they totally forgot to add shadowing on him from the stupid rocks… And then the shadowing is back, darker than ever, the very next shot of him… Add in that crazy “Obi-Wan getting a hummer in a back alley of Mos Eisley” yell (my favorite description I’ve heard of it), the whole scene is just bottomless insanity.

I’m sorry to say I’ve been so busy with work that I had no time or energy to do any work on Star Wars.
We have some big projects ending in September, so I’m hoping that then I could start doing some work on Despecialized.

We’re probably mostly all just glad that you’re well and still keeping the project in mind. We’d all be thrilled to see this quickly come to fruition, but obviously you need to get the important stuff in your life done first. Still, come the end of some work projects in September, perhaps it is a good time to take a little vacation time to focus on …other… activities. 😉

After watching the Kennedy interview, I think when she says ‘those will always remain his’ she was referring to the edits themselves, not the SE’s. Implying she doesn’t want to be associated with the changes at all.

LOL, who would?

It’s going to be interesting to see just what film elements they end up using as their starting point when the OOT is inevitably restored in the next several years.

And imagine the huge “we told you so” if they wait just a little too long and the original film elements fall apart when they finally touch them.

They have the separation masters, they may even have a pristine interpositive (first generation copy). And film stock from the seventies doesn’t turn to dust, even after 40 years.

I’ll keep my sarcasm in my own way, and I’ll leave you to keep yours in yours.

Sorry if this is slightly off topic Harmy, but what is your profile picture of? It looks like Vader, but closer inspection reveal that it isn’t… sorry, I have literally been wondering for years, and tgought I would go ahead and just ask.

We’re barely a week from the sequel coming out, the reference should be more relevant and recognizable than ever, haha.

This is where I was as well, and even though her answer was rather vague it is disheartening. Guess it’s back to work 😉

Also, I don’t know if it is necessarily disheartening that the head of Lucasfilm has announced they aren’t further ruining the OT through continued SE dicking around.

I think the “are you kidding” implies wouldn’t.

Yeah I know it doesn’t really change anything. The unedited clip though is interesting and makes it even more clear to me that she wasn’t even thinking about the theatrical versions.

Yeah, he completely dropped the ball on his question, she was so completely lost for a while there as to what he was trying to ask, and then was excited to get out a simple answer and move on once she thought she figured out where he was going with it. Off of this impromptu interview alone, I don’t think there’s any cause for new speculation either way about the state of the OOT, just that there’s some confirmation of what was already obvious, there’s no further SE tweaks going on without George.

So here’s a question:

Lets say they wait this out and do nothing until 2020, simply reissuing the same 2011 discs in the meantime. Will they have to phase those discs out of the marketplace by May of 2020? If Lucasfilm gets the rights to Empire, Jedi, and the prequels, will Fox still get their cut on sales of the existing unsold discs?

Don’t underestimate Disney’s ability to put things in vaults.

Like I said before, I could totally see them putting out a regular 1080p blu-ray of the OOT this year because of the guaranteed dollars it would bring in, even if they have to share some of it with Fox. They would still have a UHD in their back pocket waiting to be released after May of 2020.

This possible scenario makes the most sense to me.

Apparently none of this has anything to do with sense, though.

They should partner with Nintendo to surprise-release the restored OUT this May, to ensure that, while they’re finally doing what the fans want, no one will be able to see it.

Also, the reason for the sarcastic sounding response from alexp above is that there is honestly no chance in all of this discussion that WHERE to get this project could have been skipped. It is talked about or mentioned or, at the very least, hinted about almost all the time, you’ll figure it out. We know people want the quick and easy path, but you know where that leads… Yep, it leads to not learning anything, where did you think it led?

They’ve got other stuff up that they probably grabbed from myspleen. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rifftrax-Star-Wars-Holiday-Special-DVD-Mystery-Science-Theater-3000-MST3K/282357001409

Best to just keep an eye on this person and report all their lame auctions. Obviously, this one isn’t as big a deal, as it’s the holiday special and Disney (Fox? Does anyone even pretend to own the rights to this one?) doesn’t sell it. Still, it’s someone trying to make money off a myspleen account, most likely.

This one should still be reported by all of us even if it’s a bastard child of Star Wars history.

Look at the fat change this bastard has made already. GRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr …

Bastard Star Wars child or not, he isn’t just selling some unreleased Star Wars obscurity, hurting no one in terms of sales, but directly stealing from and harming a cherished small business called Rifftrax that, through no small feat, convinced Fox/Lucasfilm/CBS/Disney/whomever to actually let them legally distribute it in the commentated form this guy is reselling. This is despicable beyond even his sales of Despecialized.

Question on this dream sequence. Originally I left in the dialogue but it’s super quiet and very hard to hear, even with the music volume lowered. Does this work with it removed entirely?

All I know is I love the Groundhog Day-ness of the music as he wakes up, make sure that stays. (And I have no problem with how the dream sounds. Less you hear from Hayden, the better.)

Second clip features a quick audio gag (another Wook idea) of Super Grover yelling as Yoda “crashes” into the speeder. And the song playing on Bail’s radio is this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srpwqf2MWAw

Which both calls back his comment in AOTR (yet another Wook idea) and also mocks Yoda a bit.

I swear I was shot down recommending Super Grover yells for Yoda in the past…

Edit: Okay, I actually found the posts. Seems I was just supporting Wook’s idea.
