Some of you are probably familiar with my ANH-X that is a WIP:
but truth be told, I have rough draft on the editing software timeline for Jedi and Empire. Depending if I need a switch and my mood I often hop around (focus still on ANH). Since the plan is to use the finished HD version of Adywans as a base, Empire might actually have a chance to have a release earlier than the other 2. Below are the current planned scenes for the ESB-X for those interested. I have not stopped ANH work though and in a week or so, will also create a separate tread for ROJ-X. Like the others, I have a version planed with a intros that are radio drama intros, but also will have a traditional theatrical version for those that may want that.
There will be a V1, V2, V3 for all these.
V1=is basically ESB-R w + all official deleted scenes added in and some quicker extended edits using original footage
Format:2D and possibly 3D
V2=V1 + scenes that only needed additional medium complexity FX
Format:2D and 3D
Format: 2D and 3D
Happy May the 4th!
