ESB-X (the eXtended version) (WIP)

Author

 (Edited)

Some of you are probably familiar with my ANH-X that is a WIP:

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Star-Wars-ANH-X-the-eXtended-version-WIP/id/89934

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=excludes planned live action shots (unless a few are quick to do) basically ESB-R w/all deleted scenes added in
Format:2D and possibly 3D
V2=all planned scenes except the alternate radio drama beginning scene.
Format:2D and 3D
V3=Full/all scenes.
Format: 2D and 3D

Happy May the 4th!


~39 extra scenes

ESB-X V3

  • Rebel convoy
    Starts off after the crawl with scenes of convey getting attacked on way to Hoth - This is the Radio drama edition’s beginning.

  • Probe Droid Launch
    Extra radioD scene of Hoth probe droid launching after officers have a discussion on the star destroyer bridge about searching for a month and finding nothing - from the radio drama edition.

  • General Rieken announces convey was annulated
    Scene from radio drama where they get this news of this event over the comlink on echo base, Liea shows look of despair as she hear this news.

-----ESB-X V1 - -----------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Extra Luke Intro (Music)
    Slight intro music modification to Luke’s intro with his taun taun, taken from radio drama also includes a very quick extra scene of probe droid after it lands.

  • SE wampa scene revisited
    Edited back in, but re-edit to be more suspenseful and include some of the off camera shots of the wampa from original that added more suspense. Includes wampa arm getting sliced and extra SE shots of wampa.

  • Extra scenes of rebels in base when announcements are made over radio
    Audio from Radio Drama

  • Launch of speeders in the morning (V2)
    Extra scene from RadioD, where the order is given to launch the search and recovery team, speeders leave echo base to look for Luke and Han.

  • Luke and han in the tent (V2)
    Extra new scene using dialogue from radio drama in the morning, where Luke and Han are waiting for rescue in the tent that was setup to survive the night.

  • 21B conversations
    Extra scene of luke and 3PO talking to 21B in medical center after Luke’s recovery in the bacta tank.

  • Leia and luke after his recovery
    Deleted scene restored that shows them both in the medical center before solo arrives. Here we see the red bacta that replaces the blueish/purple bacta as seen the deleted scenes where bacta is in background. Bacta during the theatrical scenes are more red to be consistent to the comic and Ralph Mcquery paintings where it is red as opposed to blueish in color that was in the original.

  • Extra scene of han and liea in hallway
    Deleted scene restored and added in that is the longer and more heated conversation that the two have.

  • 21B talks to Luke
    Extended scene from radio drama between the two, as luke grabs his gear and leaves the medical facility

  • 3po switching the sign
    Deleted scene as they are fleeing rebel base to which the door holding back captured wampas has the warning sign removed by CPO so when troopers check they are unexpectedly attacked.

  • Extra wampa scene breaking free into the base
    From deleted scene showing rebels dealing with this while at the same time being invaded by the imperials.

  • Extended Hoth battle new scenes #1 (V2)
    Series of extra shots mixed in that include some establishing shots of the extra 2 added Adywan AT-ATs progressing forward and showing rebels engaged in ground battle before the AT-ATs get to the trenches (the 2nd line of defense). Here the terrain is more hilly, cuts back to the speeder approach on the 4 of the 5 AT-ATs.

  • Extended Hoth battle new scenes #2 (V2)
    Series of extra shots mixed in that show more of the battle specifically taking some of the other 2 Adywan walkers down. There are some xwings and ties in the air and an in cockpit view from a Y-wing assault on an AT-AT making its way closer to the base and in more of a rocky area.

  • Extra scene of vader entering the base (V2)
    Vader uses the force to open the base doors and chokes a rebel while also sending his lightsabre via force throw to slice other soliders until the sabre returns back to his hand. This will be a live action shot based off of a scene that was in a Battlefront as a cut scene. Would normally not mix in CG characters, but as live action I feel this may be interesting to see, but of course will depend how it comes out-TBD, but I have high hopes for this one and are working on full a Vader costume for this.

  • Hoth Tie Fighter chase & AT-AT takedown (V2)
    Extra shots of a tie pilot chasing an xwing through a snowy canyon section as well as additional shots of the rebel ground troops going after an AT-AT as they are closer to the base.

  • Imperials entering the base
    Extra shot of vader blocking laser blast with his sabre in the main hanger as they enter the base that cuts to the control room where you hear about the imperials infiltrating the base but prior you never got to see them until they are already well inside.

  • Luke leaving Hoth
    Extra dialogue from radio drama of luke coming to his xwing after the battle while R2 is lifted in + . Rebels leaving and the final AT-AT falling to the ground + more dialogue with R2 in orbit while leaving hoth

  • Luke’s light sabre training
    Extra deleted scene with yoda and Luke as Luke attempts to slice a metal bar in 9 pieces or missing completely - TBD

  • Han repairs the falcon
    Deleted scene restored and added in, where when they are inside the slug and han is working to do some repairs

  • Extended bounty hunters scene with better view at Dengar.

  • Extra bespin establishing exterior shot (TBD)

  • Extra 3po dialogue to lando from radioD when they first land

  • 3po and the junk closet droid
    Extra dialogue with a silver protocol leaving the closet/room before he enters and is blasted into pieces by stormtroopers inside

  • Han and leia talk after his torcher (version 2)
    Extra lines taken from radio drama of han and leia in the cell room after he is torchered

  • Boba fett speaks at dining room
    Extra line at dinner from Fett after vader speaks (from radio drama)

  • Lando clears the city
    Extra lines from radio drama when lando is clearing the city out on the comms radio. Also a few extra shots of them running through cloud city corridors.

  • Cloud City Luke and Vader Reimagined by Fixit in Post
    The sequal to SC38….release date for this TBD and depends how this turns out

  • Extra Bobfett shot in carbon chamber

  • Luke looking for Vader
    Extra lines from Luke from radio drama where he taunts Vader a little before vader comes out of the shadows and attacks with his light sabre

  • Lobot gets caught
    Deleted scene with lobot in the hallways and where he gets captured by imperials

  • Vader to his shuttle
    SE scene of vader going to his shuttle exterior shot added back, but his voice calling “bring me my shuttle” removed as he is already at his shuttle and you see him walk to it a second later in the very next shot which would not make sense to say that line. May replace with a new vader not sure yet

  • Lando in the airlock
    Extra lando dialogue from radio drama when Lando has Luke safely in the air lock. There is more emphasis on the lines said to get them to get going…actually says let’s get out of here as you hear tie firing over the com + see the bolts above as they come through- a small edit that gives the scene more tension.

  • Luke in Falcon medical Bay extended
    Deleted scene of luke in medical bed on the falcon with leia where she mentions boba fett to luke

  • Ties Approaching
    Extra dialogue from radio drama where Leia is asking about an alarm that is going off which is for the star destroyer being detected. Happens after she has returned back to the cockpit.

  • Lando Back in Falcon seat
    Fix to scene where lando is put back in his seat when falcon leaves bespin (he was in the prior shot and closer to the controls when R2 fixes the hyper drive), but then completely disappears a second later as a continuity issue (fixing the issue).

  • Final Shot
    Very slight closer framing in of the last shot with luke and leia and the droids through window of frigate only to see this FX shot and more ship detail if watching on a large home theatre screen. More of a personal choice to see more detail. Also this used UHD footage as the master source for more detail and so no resolution get’s loss going up from 1080P. Ends back to normal frame after camera pulls back 3 sec later.

I am curious as to your plans to incorporate the radio drama scenes into ESB , especially the scene of Han and Luke in the tent and the opening scene . Do you have footage in mind for this or plan to shoot some of your own ?

This will be a fresh shoot since we have a full han hoth outfit and most of luke hoth, thinking alot of over the shoulder shot but will do some face ons. Plan to use deep fake or simular. We have Hamil for the voice acting here obviously and some lines from Harrison, but will need to do some audio work on solo and get and some lines for him as perry is good but not Harrison 😃 and deep fake audio for the lines if not happy with results. There are actually some talented people out there on fivr doing Solo lines so will have to see. But yea, will have to be shot in winter so probably one of the later scenes to be honest since it is spring in my location now.If this scene does not happen it’s not the end of the world as it is not a crucial scene…although does have some good lines

Any plans on using the extended bounty hunters scene? I’ve seen around here this scene in some project. It has a better view at Dengar.

I just downloaded that tonight in a good quality and yes I plan to use it. Actually Dengar looks pretty stiff in that clip 😃

This sounds like a really interesting project, especially if you are filming extra scenes!
