Watched the Pre-SE changes, which is not my speciality, of course.
I’d never noticed the 1981 starfield is the ESB one (since I don’t compare the movies to each other often)! I’ve marked it in my V1 album so I can be sure to speak more on it in ANH V2.5 (which would cover pre-19 changes/unchanges).
Somehow it’d be great if you could explain that adding the EPISODE IV title ruins the flow of the crawl. The movements of the opening theme were scored by Williams to match the appearance of the paragraphs in the original release, but now it’s just garbled. Of course, none of the other movies sync the paragraphs to the music, so it’s kind of setting a precedence.
Other than that, I think it’s great and I learned a lot!
Oh, I love using the “One Last Time” as a transition, you should make a point in the 97SE video that they’re ONLY talking about ANH, which was the original plan. The 97SE of the sequels were done at almost the last minute by a self-admitted “C Team” with much less resources and budget than ANH.
