My first time watching for a drop release. When does it normally hit places like myspleen and tehparadox? Thanks so much Harmy…been refreshing all day. 😃

When someone downloads it from wherever Harmy uploads it to then uploads it themselves. So it just depends on how long it takes them to download it, really.

I’m getting a 403 error when I try to look at the changes gallery. Is this not up yet?

Hm, weird - the gallery is not up yet but you should be seeing an empty gallery, not a 403 error - is everybody else getting that?

I will include them in the NFOs.

Ok. You can consider my post as a (probably unnecessary) reminder. Thanks for your work… and take your time!

EDIT: I’m late. As usual.

Ah. I thought Harmy just did a direct drop to the main sites. But that explains why the various versions there are not all uploaded by the same user. Makes sense now. Thanks for the clarification. Back to patiently waiting…

Harmy’s RETURN OF THE JEDI - DESPECIALIZED EDITION HD v2.5 IS NOW OUT

Where to find it:

This is a fan preservation. Fanedits and preservations must not be bought or sold. Please report every fanedit or preservation you find for sale to webmasters of originaltrilogy.com. Fanedits and preservations are an artform and to be shared among legal owners of the officially available releases only. Do not support piracy.

This is a reconstruction of the 1983 theatrical version of Return of the Jedi. The original shots were painstakingly restored using various sources (listed below) and the film received an extensive shot by shot colour correction based on a fade free 1983 LPP Print. ROTJ v2.5 is pretty much completely despecialized, apart from a couple of wipes, which were recomposited optically in 1997 and look nearly identical to the originals, so for all intents and purposes this is the original version.

The remastered version (v2.5) represents a significant improvement in picture quality over the earlier 1.0 version due to the use of better encoding and higher quality sources and replacing many of the despecialized shots with higher quality ones.

VIDEO SOURCES:

  1. RETURN OF THE JEDI Episode IV A New Hope Official Blu-Ray (2011)

  2. LPP 35mm print scans (Team Negative 1 and Poita)

  3. Schorman’s HDTV Preservation - Return of the Jedi (2004 DVD version)

  4. RETURN OF THE JEDI 2006 Bonus DVD (sourced from the 1993 Definitive Edition Laser Disc Master - upscaled by Dark Jedi)

  5. RETURN OF THE PUG (1983 16mm print transfer)

  6. Custom mattes

It is currently available as a DVD9 AVCHD and 20GB MKV. Here are the full NFOs for both versions:

MKV: http://pastebin.com/Fwr1jidV

Harmy, thanks for the great work! Amazing stuff!

I must be blind or don’t know the exact search criteria. I just don’t see it on there either.

@dogdoctor
thread name “Harmy’s STAR WARS Trilogy Despecialized Edition - NO DISCUSSIONS/REQUESTS…” first post is updated for ROTJ to v2.5

I searched just “Harmy’s” and this was second in search results.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE…when will you release it???

Please, please, please…just stop. It will be released soon enough.

Jeez. You’re all a welcoming bunch!

You’ll either leave in a week or stick around long enough to appreciate sarcasm directed at new rude/impatient members. 😃

We’re fairly welcoming to the good ones!

How about this link?

Are you guys seeing the empty album there?

If anyone wants to reupload this anywhere, please PM me first and I’ll give you fixed NFO files.
Meanwhile, I will also re-upload versions with fixed NFOs to uloz but keep these current links live for a while, so you don’t need to worry if you’re already downloading.
If you find any other problems with the NFOs, now’s the time!!!

I’m so happy this is finished! Congrats to Harmy! Will grab this and kick back a bit for ESB 2.5 and then run the marathon my GF has been nagging about 😃 These are indeed
good times for OT fans!

Really looking for the new comparison gallery as well. I’m also curious towards
what GOUT footage there might be that is left in. GOUT would seem obsolete now the
35mm is avalaible, but I guess getting rid of it would call for every single
bit to be despecialized again from scratch.

Cheers!

There’s only one shot left using the GOUT - it’s sort of an homage really - I just wanted all the v2 versions to have a little piece of GOUT, since while on it’s own it was a terrible release, it was still very helpful in the end. So I will smuggle some GOUT into ESB v2.5 as well 😉

Just watched the Workprint version the other night. Looking forward to this “complete” version. Downloading now.

The Force is truly with you, Harmy.
