Hello! I am from Hungary and Star Wars was always a part of my childhood. (Despite being a 90s kid) We only had the first movie and RotJ though, so it always left little me frustrated that I missed the Empire Strikes Back and didn’t know what happened in it…

Recently got into it again, especially since I saw the last movie of the Skywalker-Saga in the theaters last December before Xmas. I still prefer the Original Trilogy though.

Nice to meet you all. 😃

Hello all,
I was talking with my sister (who is a huge Harry Potter fan) about the Harry Potter movies and she said she’s seen on TV the extended release versions. I went to Google to see what she was talking about and it led me here. I had no idea this even existed and I’m excited to dig around here to see what this is all about.
I’m older in life with a full time career but I’ll poke around here when I can. Thanks for letting me in and talk to you soon.

Hello, Thanks to the admins of this site. Thank you to all who contribute. I have been a part of your community for several months, and am admittedly still a newb. I have been a fan of Star Wars since having seen the original in '77. I am old-school and partial the O.T. over all others. While I was away from the S.W. galaxy for many years, Harmy’s DEED reminded me what I was missing, had missed. I look forward to his 3.0. Thanks to Adywan for his Revisited edits. While I am not particularly a S.E. fan, I greatly appreciate his work, enough to locate and purchase the '97 SE Platinum tril. on VHS in anticipation of downloading his work.

Hello my rebel friends, I just wanted to say it’s great to find a place devoted to just the Original Trilogy. Star Wars has become so huge that when someone asks if I’m “into” Star Wars I have to be honest and say “not really.” And not out of bitterness but simply that what I really love is all right here and the rest is ancillary and I just couldn’t keep up with it even if I wanted to. But I do indeed have nothing but love for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi and always will.

Hi OT!

I have been a Star Wars fan since the 80’s (I was born in 1981) and have not been able to shake it as much as I had wanted to in recent times. My introduction to OT Star Wars was over wearing out the VHS tapes, when I was a kid, as i could not get enough of its world. It was my dad’s fault but I honestly don’t blame him for it. Today, as a collector, I own versions of the films on VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray, and Digital. I also collect the comic books, books, posters, action figures, video games, and miniature games. It has always been a pretty big deal in my life. And while I try to keep myself involved as much as possible, I always come across new stories and information regarding its universe. Sadly, Disney had done a pretty good job in keeping me disinterested for a bit in the the past recent years with its adaptation of the sequel trilogy. However, I can say that Rogue One managed to bring me back to the reasons why I love Star Wars so much (though, there is a only 1 specific version I can watch that makes it a true Star Wars movie 😉). I also cannot forget to mention the Mandalorian. I am highly excited for its upcoming 2nd season!
By joining OT.com, I hope to discuss all things Star Wars with other fans and possibly learn about characters/stories I have yet discovered or just hash out thoughts and opinions. Of course I will need to learn how this site works as a newbie. See you around and MTFBWY!

Hello, My name is Jarod(not a real one but I like it). I am a huge Harry Potter fan. just crazy about it. I have my reasons to love it and it helped me through some time as a kinda safe blanket. I started collecting it and now I have almost all special editions from allover the world. I like to see how same movie can be wrapped in different covers. Also I am a huge fan of Disney. I have it all. When I was a kid I collected everything on VHS. Then did same with dvd. now I am living in Canada and I completed my Blu-ray collection. My big goal is to find all blur ays from Disney that contain Russian audio track (official releases).[I am from Belarus BTW] I have all of them now. Also I have them all in Steelbooks from UK.

So I am a movie fan. Huge one. I just like to resolve in a story and enjoy it from start till the very end. Few years ago I discovered Open Matte format. I fell in love. I searched fro Imax versions of Harry Potter. Finally I was reworded with all HBO Harry Potter web files. It was amazing. Then I start to look some some of my favorite movies and I found a lot of them. Like I have almost all Marvel cinematic universe in Open Matte Format with Localized Video Track (It is when movie title is in Russian language in my case).

Why I am here? It is simple. As a child (I am 40yo) I loved to see movies in cinema. I am not very happy with what is coming now on BR and 4K. It is not the same emotions that I had as a kid. So I found on Russian tracker scanned version of Aladdin 35mm. OMG!!! You have no idea what the day it was. I found exactly same translation I had as a kid and with Final Cut Pro I adjusted it to the picture. It was like I am back to my childhood. Way better than any 4K. I started to search for those who does that amazing job and found that web site. My goal is to find all original Disney scans.

Oof. I got carried away with writing. 😃

Greetings …
I happened across one of this group’s fan-edits a few weeks (THE ABYSS) and thoroughly enjoyed it. I always felt it was one Cameron’s overlooked films, and it was the cleanest extended editions I’ve seen so far. I’ve been a film nut for decades, pre-VHS days, and the thought of owning an actual film I loved was completely intoxication … though, at the time, I had no idea it was the death-knell of I the small theaters I frequented in the 70’s. Over the decades, I’ve amassed quite a collection of films on multiple formats (CED,LD,DVD, BluRay … then evenentually, digital downloads … with the occasional VHS thrown in if it’s one-of-a-kind, as I never really embraced the format as I dislike pan-and-scan with a passion).
I pretty much “old-school”, so I haven’t a big fan of 4K,as I think most presentations are very un-filmlike. So here I am, hoping to read about the projects. Not a huge Star Wars fan, so I’ll probably be digging around the alternate project more. BTW,I haven’t watched it ages as my play needs another stylus, but I recall the original CED of Star Wars didn’t have the “New Hope” in the opening. Just to make “peace” with any fanatics, I did see Star Wars on a huge screen about 2 months after it’s release in theaters back in '76 … I went back about 12 times following that (but honestly … I was very high during the 70’s). Still prefer ZARDOZ.
