Although that is sad, we should at least acknowledge that Mr. Abrams has seen the despecialized edition!! That’s kinda crazy right?

Honestly, I’m not surprised he’s seen it - Simon Pegg is a good friend of his and he tweeted about it a couple of years ago. But I’m surprised he’d mention it in an interview.

And for J.J. to also question why the unaltered versions are not officially available too! 😃

Well done, Harmy.

This is fantastic news, even though it’s not exactly what we hoped for.

I suppose it’s good to have this clarification, in that these projects don’t have a sword dangling over their heads of an official release.

It is sad to get confirmation that we won’t see a commercial release of the theatrical versions.

I can rest easy knowing all the hard work that has and is going into making these available to the fans.

Thanks to everyone who has helped with that work. It is greatly appreciated by a lot of people.

Right… because it would be terrible to have to lose these projects to something better.

… or something…

Not saying it’s good news at all, beyond just that it’s good to know if that is going to be the case in order to avoid hesitancy to work on these things.

Hey there, everyone, I don’t believe this has been discussed, I see Harmy only quoted it. If it has, just ignore me.

Apparently in the Disney+ release of Star Wars, which I hear looks excellent because of a new 4K scan or something, they once again altered the scene with Han and Greedo. Greedo still shoots first but now they added the line “Maclunky” that Greedo shouts right before he dies.

I can’t confirm this, though, since I’m not from the US and Disney + isn’t available over here, I thought it was a joke at first. This is why I thought I would discuss it here.

Why, in the name of the force, would they do that? Unbelievable.

On a lighter note, I’d like to thank you, Harmy, for all the hard work. I’ve had the privilege to watch the Despecialized Editions once again this year in preparation for The Rise of Skywalker. I will watch it tomorrow at midnight, I’m quite excited. Hope you and everyone have a great time when you see it. MTFBWY.

This is the discussion thread for that:

https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Official-All-Star-Wars-films-released-in-4K-HDR-on-Disney-Plus-4KSE-with-more-changes/id/70590/page/1

Why, in the name of the force, would they do that? Unbelievable.

Apparently it’s supposedly for greater tie-in with the prequels. Supposedly some prequel character says “Maclunkey” and if you’re cool and in the know about crappy prequels you too can know the meaning of Greedo’s dying words. Or like everyone else you can just pretend it never happened.

All of these changes are from the Reliance 4K project, which was done under Lucasfilm/Lucas for a 3D release that never materialized, so that sort of thing mattered to them. Disney just used the films they bought.

CatBus has nailed it on the head mate.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

It’s sort of nice to get an officialish acknowledgment in any case. Part of the frustration is in feeling like our desires are being totally ignored. Even though the answer isnt what we want, its better than the stonewalling imho

The free rapid downloading software won’t let me download the files from Pastebin.

Try jdownloader??
Or you can try the links manually in your browser?

Sorry I’m more than a little confused. Where do I actually find the necessary files to make the despecialized editions? I only seem to find links to comparison pictures/videos.

Ahhh, now I see it, kept looking for actual download links instead of the unique MKV format, thanks man.

Are there any plans for a 1981 re-release Despecialized? I’d like to be able to see that version someday.
