ANH Jabba Scene Pre-Special Edition Recreation

Author
Time

Using the 2011 Blu-Ray and the recently scanned “From Star Wars to Jedi” 16mm print (as well as whatever source Jamie Benning used in Star Wars Begins, a few VHS recordings I think), I’ve tried to recreate the Episode IV Jabba scene with the original actor Declan Mulholland before the CGI slug got shoved in there.

Obviously it’s still a work in progress and the colour isn’t all there and the seams are visable, but it’s miles above what we’ve had before I think. Ideally I’d like to use a scan of the 97SE since I like that version far more, but since it isn’t completed or released yet, the Blu-Ray will suffice.

Very interesting, this looks much better what i’ve seen before.

Nice project. I’ve seen some other attempts on youtube. It seems to get trickier towards the end of the scene, where the editor seemed to be using really awful sources stitched together.

Looks good, colors are well matched. Quite good for what it is 😉

Nice! Never thought about using garbage mattes to do this. Can’t wait to see the end result.

Now here’s the hard part, the backend of the scene with 8 different sources, all wildly differing in colour and quality. I’ve tried to get the colours as close as possible. The audio isn’t done yet and the last shot still needs work to remove the credits or just further crop them out, the shot slowly zooms in so there isn’t such as jarring cut, but it might just look like garbage, so I’m not sure.

Wasn’t there a Japanese laserdisc that included the original deleted scene as part of the movie?

Initiating self-destruct countdown…

Because so much of the frame has to be replaced in this quality and as Jabba keeps moving, its very distracting so it’s a little better to keep it like this

Perhaps the japanese “From SW to Jedi” you’re thinking of? That’s the only one that I know of that had the scene included, but maybe there is one out there that I’m unaware of
