A New Hope Repossessed

 (Edited)

Ok, the final cutlist on this edit “Repossessed”:

This is basically FGR’s Reimagined cut with the following updates:

- Possessed’s ANH is now the base, which means complete color correction - sooo much better. 
- The scenes I used from FGR have been color corrected to match Possessed’s cut
- New blaster bolts and lightsabers
- Vader’s chest plate lights work in all scenes
- Replace Death Star operators with the ones from Rogue One
- Entrance to Mos Eisley has been extended slightly to include overhead shot
- Replaced a few shots of Obi wan during the Sc.38 duel (upgrades in quality)
- New Alderaan explosion
- Replace Forest canopy shot on Yavin with new slow panning shot
- Add Yavin Temple Base establishing shot (from Rogue One)
- New upgraded clips added to Battle of Yavin (x-wings taking out surface guns, new wide shot of all x-wings and TIEs, a few new x-wing/TIE dogfight clips and a new Y-wing clip - the original was horrendous)

Do you plan on using Adywan’s ANH: Revisited?

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

I hadn’t planned on it, but I may use his Battle of Yavin if I can find a good enough source to use. What other changes from Revisited do you recommend?

When ANH:R HD comes out, use most of his changes.

That seems…uncool? It’s one thing to use some changes here and there, it’s another thing to plan in advance to ape “most of” someone else’s work years before their work is even released. Especailly when it’s something like Revisited, which has a lot of intense effects work done as opposed to more standard edits.

If you’re already using Possessed’s edit, he took Darth Vader’s dialogue from Revisited, since Ady did a lot of work to make Vader’s voice filtering line up better with ESB and ROTJ. Of course, Possessed’s audio is 2.0 instead of discrete 5.1, so if you want to end up with a 5.1 track, it might be better to take Adywan’s 5.1 track and slot in the Vader dialogue yourself if you want to keep this change.

I agree. I feel like Revisited is such a huge project, I’d rather leave it as it’s own entity. Like I said, I MAY use a few shots during the battle of Yavin, but that’s probably it.

This is almost finished if anyone is interested.

I didn’t use any footage from Revisited. I experimented but ultimately chose to leave Revisited as it’s own entity. I also decided to keep FGR’s prologue the same - using ‘Spark of Rebellion’ seemed like a great idea in theory but didn’t quite work, as it is more Empire-focused and this prologue is more about the rebels. Regardless, I think this edit came out really well - all credit to Possessed and FGR for their great cuts.

exact change list?

Ok, so in a nutshell, this is basically FGR’s Reimagined using Possessed’s cut as a base. So the cut is actually the same as FGR’s but now it’s completely color corrected (per Possessed), all new blaster bolts and lightsabers in all scenes, Vader’s chestbox now lights in all scenes, new Rebel death star analysis plans, and there’s also a brand new Alderaan explosion never scene before.

Would you mind posting a clip of Alderaan in particular?

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

Here is the new Alderaan explosion: https://drive.google.com/file/d/12jJKJs2xQDsobHQZqe263pCo5ZW4yBqs/view?usp=sharing

Considering the concentration of planets where Alderaan is located (at least 6-7 planets in close proximity), this solution really makes sense to me. I like the idea of seeing it from a distance… very similar to the treatment in TFA with the destruction of the Republic.

Thanks for letting me see that. It seems to split the shot into two, one of which is new.

The explosion is still outdated.

As long as you are happy, all if good!
But for me, the two shots look completely different in style. It doesn’t work.

I like the second (new) shot a lot, so why not also replace the first one?

So the reasoning behind splitting the shot in two, is that the first part is almost like a tracking shot from the death star ‘laser’ (Dr. Evil voice) firing up and then firing on Alderaan and the initial explosion - the second shot is the view from elsewhere in the galaxy/neighboring planets. The second shot doesn’t quite work without the first tracking/establishing shot.

Where did you take the shots of the X-wings approaching the DS?
Could I use them?

New upgraded clips added to Battle of Yavin

I like the new clips, but they need some blurring / color shift to match the model footage.
Anyway they work well and improve the movie!

As with Alderaan, the new Death Star explosion doesn’t work for me.

But overall it’s good work, thanks for sharing, I enjoyed seeing it !

Those clips were already in Forceghosts’s ANH Reimagined. I’m ok with you re-using any of this material.

Thanks! I did my best to make them match as far as color correction - it was definitely a challenge. Thanks for the positive feedback!

He has a habit of asking people to do really specific things for edits that are already finished and released. Often things that the editor has specifically stated they aren’t going to be doing, too.
