Here’s what I would correct/keep IMHO:

  • Make pointed lightsabers to match the ones in the prequels (and TFA?);
  • New Alderaan explosion;
  • Make TIE fighters the same color as the rest of the OT;
  • Keep “Battle of Heroes” soundtrack throughout Darth Vader vs Obi-Wan duel, since the sequence is fast paced;
  • Keep Darth Vader’s BLACK eyes since they’re black in Episode III and the rest of the movies;
  • Remove Darth Vader’s reflecting pole flashes in his encounter with Obi-Wan as he approaches saying “I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan”;
  • Make Obi-Wan lighting his saber after Darth Vader, since “a Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack,” according to Yoda;
  • Restore Tarkin’s final shot before the Death Star’s destruction;
  • Restore Death Star’s destruction wave.

I agree with this list. Adywan’s lightsaber duel in A New Hope is a hundred times better than the original with the exception of Obi-Wan igniting his lightsaber first. I especially enjoyed the “Battle of Heroes” soundtrack throughout the duel, which gave the scene more emotion. In the original duel, I always thought that the characters looked like little boys playing with toy swords. Adywan’s faster paced duel fixed that problem. And I love how Darth Vader’s eyes now match the rest of the original trilogy. I believe Adywan plans to re-rotoscope all lightsabers in the prequels to match the revisited original trilogy.
