I can finally rewatch Return of the Jedi without any embarassing CGI shenanigans (of which this particular movie is fuller than any other in the trilogy), i could never thank each and everyone that took part in this project enough.

May the force be with you all.

4K83 is superior. It’s a 35mm scan from film prints.

4K83 is impressive, but I personally prefer DeEd, YMMV. IMO the dividing line is between those who want a perfect recreation of the theatrical experience, versus those who are looking more for something like what a respectful Blu-ray restoration of the film to have been. Both are fine goals.

True. Might be best for a different thread altogether but I’m at that point regarding the OT and PT with wanting all officially released versions in best quality. So, I took it literally and meant, “Needs to just be a ton of film prints where applicable.” Otherwise it’s all the hybridizations of everything which made me utterly lost years ago. Too much to keep up with, especially DeSpecialized/Adywan, so I’m back into it again after perhaps 12 years.
Official being, for RETURN OF THE JEDI: 1983 film print scan, 1997 Special Edition film print scan (Laserdisc/VHS which has the bonus as a ‘side’), 2004 DVDs, 2006 DVDs, 2011 Blu-ray discs, and 2019/2020 Disney+/4K&BD release. Which is the main “pile”, aka Ridley Scott “HERE’S EVERYTHING OFFICIAL” type of release. Which happened with BLADE RUNNER, and other titles. I don’t use the term GOUT for the 2006 DVD releases, used to, the year is easier because of Movie-Censorship.com
This project is the “other” pile to me which I’d put alongside fan edits, but not necessarily. More being A sub-pile because it’s more of a recreation, and the tons of other fan edits I can’t keep up with being the B sub-pile.
SO, Official would be a dedicated binder aka theatrical experience and the releases I included which are on physical media, and then the other two being its own separate binders. The first one being an alternate Blu-ray represenation.
No telling how many discs I’d need to have for the recreation projects, and I don’t even want to get into any of the fan edits again.
Would be a fine BD25, since BD50s are still too expensive. Not the DVD9 or AVCHD. Why would I want to DVD5? I’d rather use those for random bonus feature or older tech preservations.

i agree, although something like D+77 D+80 and OTD83 fit that as well

I’m considering a couple of those as soon as I get, and get AGAIN, a lot of the official releases. As I mentioned, separate “pile”.

At least there’s a ton of subtitles!
