Hello everyone. I just wanted to ask how everyone felt about the video quality of the various Star Wars spinoff material that came a few weeks ago on Disney+, especially since all of them are marked as being in HD. You all usually have decent opinions so I was just curious. I’ll start:
2D Clone Wars: Looks glorious. I don’t know if it’s an upscale or if it was made at 1080p or something close. I know it was made in a 4:3 aspect ratio due to WHEN it was made and the credits being partially cut off but nothing seemed off in the actual episodes. There were maybe 1-3 shots that looked off but otherwise, it’s definitely a visual treat.
Ewok movies: only watched the “trailers” (just 2 minute snippets of the films) so far but they look very good. No idea how the scenes with visual effects look but I doubt they’re an eyesore (or, if they were, at least not plentiful due to the smaller budgets).
Ewoks cartoon: only saw parts of the last episode (not ready to commit to a whole viewing and don’t want it in my continue watching bar). The opening doesn’t look great but the episode itself looks pretty good. The colors seem really dark but they and the line work’s pretty solid.
Story of the Faithful Wookie, ie the Holiday Special cartoon: HD? Hah! HD, my plump, Centari ah… oh, I forgot, this is a family forum 😄 (cookie if you got the reference 😉 )
The Holiday Special cartoon looks ok buy it SOOOO was not remastered in HD. It looks OK, but an OK 1970s tape master, maybe had some remastering work, but nothing like the others above got.
So what do you guys think? Decent enough to cancel fan restorations or as bad or worse than the 04 original trilogy transfers?
