Spleen is the best way to obtain the full size files correct? I would like to be able to burn the despecialized trilogy at its highest quality to blu ray discs for media room viewing.

If you aren’t on spleen the Facebook page for despecialized has a good set of instructions on how to get them.

The multi-part rar download using free rapid downloader actually goes pretty quickly

The guide is linked (pretty prominently) in the first post here too.

I assure you, my men are working as fast as they can but since I actually have no men, that means very slowly. But in light of recent news, we shall double our efforts 😉

I hope so for Harmy’s sake. Editroid is not as forgiving as I am.

No, seriously, I’ve got to admit I was playing a bit of a waiting game - I was half expecting them to announce an official release at celebration, so I thought I’d wait and see. And now, not only have they not announced anything at celebration, Kennedy actually specifically said they had no plans to release the originals.

Sorry if this is slightly off topic Harmy, but what is your profile picture of? It looks like Vader, but closer inspection reveal that it isn’t… sorry, I have literally been wondering for years, and tgought I would go ahead and just ask.

I decided to add a signature

It looks like someone wearing a tie-dye shirt, with a Vader mask on his head.

It’s Pete Quill from Guardians of the Galaxy wearing a Darth Vader mask. Or rather just the helmet part of the Vader mask.

No she didn’t, what she said was she has no plans to further alter the SE. Still doesn’t look good though.

This is where I was as well, and even though her answer was rather vague it is disheartening. Guess it’s back to work 😉

We’re barely a week from the sequel coming out, the reference should be more relevant and recognizable than ever, haha.

Also, I don’t know if it is necessarily disheartening that the head of Lucasfilm has announced they aren’t further ruining the OT through continued SE dicking around.

I suggest you get top men working on it.

Top. Men.

Her saying “Those will always remain his” is disheartening to me, because I take it mean that they’ll respect GL’s “vision” for SW – which would mean no theatricals, ever.

And I couldn’t care less if they screw around with the SEs further. 1997, 2004, 2011 – none of them are Star Wars to me anyway. Hell, I didn’t like it when they added “Episode IV” to the crawl in 1980! (Yes, I was old enough to care).

Does it really matter if the Blu-Rays I burned of the Despecialized Editions have disc art? I can’t find a good cost-effective way to print disc art onto them. Sticky labels won’t do.

Yeah I’d throw them out right now before somebody accidentally watches them. You might even have to sell the house.

George himself released the original versions on dvd, albeit in terrible quality, which is what we’ve been waiting all this time for the new regime to rectify.

Talking about hypothetical future changes to George’s version and saying whether or not you’re going to release earlier versions that already exist seem like two totally unrelated things to me.

That was just to kill the market for LD-rips on DVD. And GL called them an extra – not a standalone release.
The last genuine release was on VHS.

Well, we really don’t know, due to the poorly worded questions given to Kennedy. But there is no reason to think that Disney has any obligation to release the theatricals just because they were released in older formats. Anyway, I hope your interpretation is correct, and mine is wrong.

I have SW and ESB 1.0, and RotJ 2.7. I’m thinking about replacing SW and eSB with 2.7, what are the differences between them?
