It wasn’t a restoration though. They cut up and butchered the negative to conform it to the 1997 edit. The original effects were replaced by either recomped or new cgi shots.

Nobody would be complaining if all they did was restore the faded color, created a new faithful multi track digital mix. Or replaced that Landspeeder shot with vaseline on the lens.

Imagine if Han did not shoot second, if he was the only one who fired.

So many unforced errors, like the worse cgi X-wing shots instead of the original motion control photography.
