Dude we all wanna see the OUT get restored and released but let’s be realistic!

The SE only getting released is non-realistic.

Then explain why they have been the only commercially available versions of the films since 2011???

I don’t know why people think there’ll be a “final version.” That’s very unlikely to happen.

This is literally the only thing I took away from that Kathleen Kennedy interview from two years ago. Anyone hoping for a ‘final cut’ type deal are pretty much out of luck.

If the OOT was 4K only, would that be something of a dick move? I’m sure I’m not the only one rocking with just 1080p.

They will probably give the option of 4K and 1080p cause not everyone has a 4K player yet

If they care enough to appease a few dozen bootleggers on the internet with the OOT 4K version I’ll be very surprised.

If they don’t include the versions I want, I’m not buying.
I don’t buy things I don’t want.
Is that a realistic boycott?

Not buying something you don’t want is realistic. To be able to boycott a release because it’s only the SE despite the SE having been the only version available for years anyways despite fan complaints is not.

Our protest might turn into results.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them.

We must strive for Disney to recognise, restore and release the OUT as we have the power. Yes we have great projects but until the OUT is officially released our work will never be done.

I disagree. I think even if an official release occurs, the restorations are going to continue.

Of course they should but we also must strive for official release

ok dude, go on, show us the way, organize the march on Lucasfilm. You’re a very adamant person, so now is the time for action. Good luck !

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

Well I’m just saying that we haven’t tried that option yet. I’m not adamant, I’m just suggesting a different option. Take it or leave it.

If nobody cares about an official release, it’s time to shut this site down.
Kinda sad.

Wee bit melo-dramatic there.

All that would need to happen is for a few of our LA members to meet up in disguise outside of LF with some posters saying release the OUT and a loudspeaker. We haven’t tried this yet so it’s worth a shot.

Why would we need disguises? And Lucasfilm hasn’t been in L.A. since the '70’s.

That’s really sad if we end up with a previous SE cut again. They really should make a new, final SE that will fit better with the newer movies and doesn’t contain as many outdated vfx, especially the bad CGI from the 1997 SE scenes. And thankfully while there is the Revisited trilogy, it’s sadly only going at 720p.

I also really want a proper 4K restoration of the OUT, as the sources Lucasfilm has are so much better than the prints we have access to.

But looking at the Karate Kid 35th anniversary 4K release, I continue to be thoroughly impressed at the ability for older films to shine in this new format.

If the OUT happens, I think it will be because of people at LF/the Mouse who care and want to see it preserved and enjoyed, not because of the fans/demand.

It wouldn’t surprise me if their desire to curb the bootleg market played a small role in their decision, too. Not because they’re losing more than a negligible amount of money from bootlegs and fan preservations, because they’re not, but rather because it looks a little bad for the brand.
