A New Hope: Vader edition

Author
Time

I’m very close to releasing an updated cut of A New Hope. I started out with Adywan’s version of the movie because I like his the best. Then after seeing sc38 reimagined, I wanted to (Like many people I’m sure) splice parts of that into the movie. I cut the bad CG moments and only used what flowed with the original. I didn’t just “drop” it in.

Then I figured, as long as I’m updating that, I could also splice in some Vader that I cut from Rogue One into this. (Yes, I’m working on an edit for that movie too lol but this isn’t where I plan to talk about what I’m doing there). I also have a slightly updated Death Star Explosion (No not ForceGhostRecon’s, this is different).

So the idea is that I update the movie a bit with some newer footage and a few other cuts that I will post later. I know that this will not be to a purist liking. This is just some fun I thought I would have. I like the Adywam approach of keeping the parts of the updated footage that was less offensive. This edit keeps that spirit. This isn’t a whole new movie like I did with The Last Jedi.

When adding the SC 38 footage, I am working on removing some of the PT dialog that was dubbed in. It’s fine as a stand alone fan piece, but it doesn’t work in the actual movie. So I’m re-scoring parts of it. I need to ask you guys 2 questions.

  1. Where does Vader say “Kenobi”? I only ever hear him say Obi Wan?
  2. Can you guys help me think of a better title lol?

This should be coming your way soon!

Thank you very much! I think, A New Hope: Heir of Skywalker might be a decent title.

Are you using Adywan’s ANH as the source and does that mean the release will be DVD quality instead of HD?

Yes I am, so the quality will be 720, not 1080. So it is considered to be HD. I was able to rip it out of the iso file and not have to burn it and then rip it. So it’s still a good clear picture.

I’m still not finding a title that seem to fit the cut. IlFanEditore has some good ideas, but I’m not doing a custom crawl, so I want something more of a 2nd title like I have with my Last Jedi edit. I want to make my posters more contestant too. To bad Rise of Skywalker is taken lol.

Well, that Kenobi line just doesn’t sound right, so I will switch it to Obi Wan. It’s still the same affect that Vader senses it, I just wanted to keep it closer to the source.

Thanks! I keep re-working things to see what feels best. So It’s taking a little longer that I thought lol. I’ve been an artist my whole life, so I’m kind of picky about what I put out into the world.

I like ANH: Action Re-imangined. I’m thinking about ANH: Dark before the Dawn… What do you guys think?

Any of these work?
ANH: Reconstructed
ANH: introspective
ANH: visionary
ANH: legendary

BTW… I found a Kenobi line that works! I got it from Rebels. I had to deepen the voice a bit and soften the beginning and end of it, but it works well.

I have the copy of “A New Hope Revisited: Special Edition” done! It does seem like there may be a drop in quality when the Death Star explodes. Let me know what you guys think? I have a back up shot I can replace it with, but I like this one better. If the quality suffers though, I will trade it out.

Looking forward to checking it out.

I’m making a few minor tweaks to A New Hope Revisited: Special Edition. I found a couple of audio glitches and a minor continuity error in the beginning. Also, I’m just not happy with the quality of the Death Star explosion. So, I am working on a new one there too. So V2 will be out soon.

Excited for this.

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.

Quick update on V2 (This is why I usually don’t post until I have a finished project lol). So I realized that the movie was a little “jumpy” at parts. I looked and I pulled the source file at the wrong frame rate… UGH 😕

So I have to re-cut the main part of the movie. The good news is, I already know how to do it and I already have the audio corrected in the cuts, so it shouldn’t take too long anyway.

In the meantime, I will leave V1 up for anyone who wants to see it.

V2 is now done! The old links will not work now because that version is deleted. I am uploading the new version now and links will be available tonight. This should be cleaner and smoother. I have an updated Death Star that is inspired by the original blowing up, but still updated.

Now it’s back to my last project. I have something very special coming up for TFA. I got with a couple of well known editors and they gave me permission to do something very cool. So this will be right in line with my edit of The Last Jedi.

do you insert some deleted vader scenes from the ot?

No, I looked at that and they were either not finished enough with the audio or they were very unnecessary and would have slowed the movie down.

I took the Vader part at the end of Rogue One and made it part of the opening (In a new way) of ANH. It really doesn’t fit any other way in my eyes. Leaving it in R1 makes everyone (including Leia) look childish or not very bright in ANH. But that is a topic I will post on once I get to my R1 Edit. That is next after I finish my TFA Edit.

I also added a lot of SC38 Re-Imagined into this and that shows off more Vader as well. I didn’t just drop it in, I only used parts that looked good in the movie and cut bad CGI moments. I also made sure to use the original shots of the other cast members aside from Vader and Ben when there was a cut away moment.

Sent out links to those who have expressed interest in the cut. Just let me know if anyone else would like a link…
