If Harmy does have another go at Star Wars, the only thing that always bothered me (I think I made a post about it in the Star Wars thread a while back) is the digital error on the lizard thing in the background when they’re first going into the Cantina, where his head moves but the nostril doesn’t move with it. It’s a stupidly minor detail but once I noticed it I can no longer not notice it. Also I’m a little confused by your wording, are the despecialized editions planned to get an upgrade to 1080?
I still am not sure anyone besides you sees the nostril thing.
I don’t believe there are specific plans for a 1080p release, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
But I too am more interested in a recolored SW than a resolution boost. Even the color of 1.0 with all the bells and whistles of 2.5 would be great. Nostrils or not. (Though I think the whole damn Eisley entrance scene can/should just be 35mm sourced some day. Most destroyed few minutes of the SE aside from Jedi rocks.)
