After tracking down the original VCD and figuring out how to extract the .mpg files after many fail attempts, I decided to somewhat clean up the ancient bootleg. I put it back to 2:39.1 from 4:3, did some minor colour correction to make it a lttle less washed out and adjusted the perspective so it wasn’t at an upward slope.

(^ The speeders which Obi-Wan passes are absent from digital and home media versions.)
(^ The prosthetic hand only twitches its fingers a few times, accompanied by subtle mechanical sound effects, before panning up. In the digital and home media versions, this is replaced by a CGI prosthetic that takes her left hand.)
There are a few small differences between the theatrical and subsequent home video releases as there always are with Star Wars films, so I thought this would be worth doing.
