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

I’ll probably make a new one when Harmy finishes 3.0. There’s a version with my recreated ‘81 crawl spliced into 2.7 floating around in the ether somewhere. No idea who might still have that.

FYI, for anyone who wants to do a new version of that, you’re better off using Hal 9000’s custom ANH’s opening crawl, since he fixed the speed of the “STAR WARS” logo (which has been way too fast in ANH since 1997, but the 1981 crawl didn’t have that issue), but didn’t alter the crawl timing or anything else the way Adywan did for Revisited. It’s the closest we have to the 1981 crawl at the moment (outside of a 4K scan that exists but hasn’t been restored).

I’d love to have A New Hope: Despecialized HD.
I like the continuity with the other trilogy titles & the “fixed” opening flyover.
I’d love to be able to have a boxed trilogy of the numbered films & also Star Wars separately, as that’s how I categorize em: Star Wars is a stand-alone film, A New Hope is the beginning of a trilogy.
Currently, A New Hope is missing from my collection & that’s a shame.

My 28 year old coworker mentioned that she hasn’t seen Star Wars very many times, and wants to do a marathon, but has never seen the theatrical versions. Needless to say, I made her a copy of the despecialized editions on blu ray. Thanks again, Harmy!

Yes, I would like a 1981 version of the Despecialized or 4K77 (4K81?).

Also, thanks to Harmy and the team for the Despecialized editions.

See there’s your idea for a 3.0 edition; include an option to watch the film with its original 1981 Episode IV crawl in addition to the original one.

Look for the ‘The Ultimate Introductory Guide’ in the 1st post of this thread by Harmy - it had proved very useful for many, many people.
 

Alternatively…

Bluto’s Guide to Downloading Projects from Usenet

or

solkap’s NJVC Custom Blu-ray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega

may also be of some interest or help.
 

There is also the Some info & help for Harmy’s Despecialized Editions of the Original Trilogy… which has some basic information too.
 

Good luck with it 😃

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Just want to say thank you Harmy and all the people that helped with this fan restoration.

Why wait for Harmy’s reconstruction of the 81 crawl and flyover when you can have it now!

The link is over six years old and still works. I take back everything bad I’ve ever said about Uloz.

Certain restrictions may apply. You may need to download video from a Czech language website and edit the video into the rest of the film yourself. Viewers may experience dizziness, dry mouth, fatigue, and a vague sense that an entire planet missed its musical cue by several seconds. If the lightsaber duel lasts longer than four hours, call your doctor immediately.

EDIT: Dangit, nevermind. It’s just the crawl with no flyover. And I made a dick joke and everything 😦
