A New Hope Closer to Canon Edition

 (Edited)

Dont get me wrong, A New Hope is a GREAT movie, yet somethings in this movie always bugged me. IM a HUGE fan of The Lucas saga ( I-VI ) and ep 4 is the least connected canon-wise to the prequels. and i know it was made before the prequels but i still wanted to try to make it a bit more connected. So ive made some tiny edits. some so tiny that it wouldnt bother people who love to watch the original version (atleast, i hope) And others are a bit bigger. Im trying to remove Vader’s leash from tarkin by giving him a bit more presence.

so here they are:

I was just thinking the other day about somehow turning Jabba into a hologram in that scene. I’d love to see how that looks with some more work.

I like a lot of these ideas! A New Hope is my favorite Star Wars movie so I’m always happy to see different takes on it.

I’m really liking those Rogue One additions. The Death Troopers could do with moving a bit (I know it’s only a concept at the moment) but they and the hologram look like they should be there.

IMO, you could still keep Han’s ancient in “ancient weapons” for two reasons. 1. It sounds weird when it’s just weapons and 2. Lightsabers are ancient weapons. But besides that, this project looks great and is gonna be awesome!

Damn that Jabba Hologram idea is really great, i dont like the scene in the special edition but this is a brilliant way to salvage it.

update:
im currently waiting on the hd version of the revisted version, so i could work from that as a base.

And ill be needing help with some text to speech things for luke and c3po as stated in the post, so if anyone would like to help, please send a DM. ill really appreciate it!

the holgram of jabba the hutt will be worked on by a very good friend of mine and will hopefully be done soon!

as for the rogue one additions, im searching for someone who would like to help animate the death troopers so there not standing still like puppets, just a little movement to give a little more life to it.

hope to hear from someone!

Han must shoot first in any edition I watch.

Question: Does Han or Greedo shoot first in this edit?

I like it, it looks cool and was nicely edited, but what is the reason for changing it?

i changed it cause i didnt really like the original hair style on the guy on the left. Again. i know its the 70s but thats the only hair cut that always bugged me.

the guy on the right has some small edits. his hair was original looked like coconut head from that nick series back in the day. so im made it a bit shorter en changed it a bit on his forehead.

im trying to use this image with ebsynth currentlly.

Do you have any plans for changing up the Death Star explosion? I did my own edit to make it look less like a balloon abruptly going pop, but it was very fanedit-y because I didn’t make it with any particular usage in mind beyond a fun little experiment.

currently not, im not so great with VFX. but if i find a really good one and i get permission to use it, then it will be changed. but sadly (in my opnion) the most edits of the explosion are a bit too much for my taste. but i will be open to it if i find the right one!

nice work on these. some are small but I see what you are going for. My favorites are the both holograms. I am working on and extended version of new hope with adywan as base and one of my planned scenes is restored Jabba that looks like ROTJ jabba and not the phantom menace one, but I never thought of the hollogram idea. That would actually really make it easy to pull off from a visual standpoint to make even more convincing since you do not have to worry so much on details. Also the board room and admiral holo speaking is pretty cool…very original ideas you have there great job!

There’s some really great edit ideas here! I love what you did with Vader in the conference room, giving him more authority by having him not be undermined by Tarkin and giving him the last word at the end of the scene, though I much prefer “I find your lack of faith disturbing” to the new line you gave him when he force chokes Motti. I also love the addition of the death troopers.

Also removing “ancient” is another good change. People blame the prequels for it not making sense but it never made sense even in the original trilogy context, because it’s said that Vader was the one that eradicated the Jedi, but it’s not like the Jedi could’ve been eradicated more then 19 years ago since Vader would’ve had to have been alive to contribute his part to Luke’s birth (who was born 19 years ago) and I highly doubt the original trilogy intended to imply that Vader got laid and conceived Luke when he had already turned to the dark side.

One suggestion I’d give is to remove all of the times Luke crushes on Leia. With the knowledge that they’re twins it’s… uncomfortable.

I will say though that removing the torture droid is just weird and the scene doesn’t make any sense without it. You’d have to heavily alter the way it’s paced in order for it to work and end it with a new shot of Vader reaching his hand out or force choking or something otherwise nobody is going to have any idea what’s happening.

thx! g&g fan!

personally the vader line change is because i feel its a better response to: ‘’ dont try to fool us with your sorcerers ways ‘’

about the romantic stuff, the only thing in my mind to be removed is the part were luke says: shes beatiful, so i will look into that.

on another note, im trying to make beru a bit younger (and i gave her a bit more upper lip) , please tell me your opinion guys and gals:

I think it’s good. However, in your video she’s really just a bit more younger. I don’t know if this result is enough to make a significant difference for the viewer, you know? Just my opinion, though.

yes this was made with Ebsynth🙂

Its a really great tool! as i said im trying to make beru look younger and that wont be that diffuclt since she just has a few close ups in the dinner scene. next up is owen but most of these are and will just be tests. i want to apply all my ideas to the hd version of revisted so im just waitng for that being released.
