So excited. Can’t wait to see them. I am actually for the first time in my life reading the books. Got them for Christmas and half way through the second one. Will be so awesome to watch these after. 😄

That is some pretty awesome work! I’m planning on getting one of the new Mac Mini M1’s soon to do rendering. I’ve considered trying my hand at doing deepfakes, but knew I didn’t have the processing power for it. With a new machine, that may change. If I could get it to work, I would also consider changing Dumbledore in movies 1 and 2 to look more like Michael Gambon. Nothing against Richard Harris at all. I would just like Dumbledore to look consistent throughout the 8 films. It would also mean I could possibly release by versions of movies 1 and 2 since there would be a significant change from the officially released versions. That is well off in the future though.

Thanks for posting that video.

Happy New Year, JJ !
I am so happy that you have re-released your edits, so that more people can experience them 😃

I’m really curious about your idea of deepfaking Richard Harris. While I’m personally prefer Richard Harris’ portray of Dumbledor then Michael Gambon - that does largely come to the acting. Who knows, maybe a more consistant appearance would be nice.
Plus, I’d love to watch movies 1-2 with your edits, too.

I hope you keep the light tone of them though. We already have a different fan edit that makes them darker.

Any hints to what else would be different in movies 1-2 compared to the official director’s cut?

Any thoughts on deepfaking a consistent look for Prof. Flitwick then? (j/k (I think))

Happy new year, and thank you JJ!

Speaking of deep faking so there’s one Dumbledore, when anyone is reading do they just imagine one version of him throughout or do they do a switch? For me it’s kind of weird I tend to think of Richard Harris then switch to Michael Gambon around the battle of the Department of Mysteries in Order (oddly enough I use Prisoner’s Flitwick all throughout). For consistency’s sake though with 6 movies to 2 it makes more sense to switch Harris to Gambon than the other way around.

Regardless deep fake brings up an interesting avenue, as with the change from Johnny Depp to Mads Mikkelsen which one would you stick with were you to change the look of Grindelwald in 7 to match his prequel counterpart? And is there anyone who, like me, would increase Harris’s tenure in the series beyond the first 2 movies?

With Dumbledore and Flitwick, we were never given an in-movie explanation.

Since we already saw Grindelwald change his appearance from Farrell to Depp (without polyjuice potion), it could easily be explained that ‘he just knows how to do that’ when he becomes Mikkelsen.

I don’t think a deepfake is necessary. Unless they bungle it.
And frankly, the Fantastic Beasts movies, so far, have seemed bungled.

JJ, I wonder if this deepfaker would lend you their files for your Grindelwald scenes? Their work is pretty fantastic 😉
Couple that with some voice cloning and we might have a seamless transition to Mads Mikkelsen.

That really is amazing! You’d have thought the movie studios would be all over this kind of thing. Imagine the money they could make of special editions and the publicity it would get.

Hey JJPotter, fantastic to hear you are continueing with this project, I can only praise your edits!

I’d like to suggest the OPEN MATTE versions for the ultimate movie experience, is this something you would like to consider for the next update (or after that)?

I know it would be more work but maybe you like these Open Matte versions even more than I do.
Recently KK650 uploaded the movies 1-6 with improved audio on 1337, you can see the screenshots there.

There is a shot in the Deathly Hallows trailer (https://youtu.be/MxqsmsA8y5k?t=65) with the protecting shield crumbling down on Hogwarts, I always thought it was really unfortunate they didn’t include it in the movie. Is that shot something you could consider to include it in your Extended Edition?

Some other deepfake ideas:

  • CoS young Tom Riddle in HBP flashback scenes
  • Jude Law as Dumbledore in CoS flashback scenes (and maybe also in HBP?)
  • DHp2 Grindelwald with older looking Johnny Depp / Mads Mikkelsen face (edit: also suggestion from Tommym38)
Author

In addition to using the OPEN MATTE versions, maybe some few improvements from Doctor M’s The Enhanced ABC Cut could be used?

Now, a few more random ideas, though I have no idea how well this could work

  • Consistancy with the use of Polyjuice Potion. It should either always change the voice, or always keep the voice.
  • In Chamber of Secrets, the diary memories had a certain color tint to it. Maybe apply it to the Pensieve memory scenes in the other movies, for a consistant look?

Overall, making magic spells and effects consistant is something that can really improve the experience.

I’ve got 2 updated PoA scenes for everyone today. #1 is the updated Knight Bus scene. This was done to more closely match the original bus scenes better. #2 is the updated After Hogsmeade scene. I’ve added music background music, adjusted coloring, tweaked Harry’s face turning red, made one addition there, and removed the duplicated dialogue from the moving staircase scene that follows.

I really hope you manage to pull this off as like yourself I’d love to see Michael Gambon in the first 2 films just for consistency. Also did you ever redo your colour corrected versions JJ?

First post! Just thought I’d drop a little message to show my support from this - I stumbled across it from Google after a little thought to myself about why there weren’t Directors Cuts of the Harry Potter films.

What’s been done so far sounds fantastic (a colour-corrected HBP in particular really interests me) - and I’d love for a release of 1-2 to be contained in this too (I own the extended Blu-rays, but a completed set would just be nice, no?). Plus, even though I adore Richard Harris, a deepfake to keep Dumbledore looking consistent throughout the films would be brilliant.

Thanks again for all your hard work - I’ve bookmarked this and will check in from time to time to see how this is going and hopefully engage with the community. 😃

If your looking for improved versions of the first two films you should check out Anjohans fanedits of those films here: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harry-Potter-and-the-Sorcerers-Stone-Revisited-Released/id/17069

Hes looking to release V2 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone - Revisited which includes deepfakes but not of Dumbledore though.

Amazing, thank you for the advice, I’ll be sure to check that out too! The first 2 films have a sense of nostalgia for me that I’m not 100% how I’d feel about such a dramatic change in tone, but I’m sure it’d be fun to watch through to experience them a little differently for a change.

I’m largely of the opinion the later movies should be more like the first films.
I will admit to liking the tone of PoA on the whole, some things were poor decisions.
There is a distinct Mexican Day of the Dead tone that seems out of place. Also, wizards in the books wear robes, but Alfonso Cuarón apparently decided that they should wear sweats and trainers.

I personally also don’t agree with making the first two movies dark like the later ones.
They were perfect with their rich, colorful, and whimsical tone, perfectly in line with the first two books.

And Prisoner of Azkaban should have also been made in the same style. I know that I wound up falling in love with the Prisoner of Azkaban we got, but I still wish the tone of the first two movies could have continued for the later films. Maybe somewhat darker, but not all way into the direction they went.

JJ, if you decide to release your own extended editions of movies 1 and 2, I’d love to see that.

Hi there! I think that I have found a better source for a deleted scene of the third movie. It’s the scene of the bird that flies through the wooden bridge and bothers Hagrid. I don’t understand why but I think that this scene was previously an extended scene and now is part of the movie, and I seem to have a version from the blu-ray that shows this scene in better quality… Am I mad or there is something that I’m missing here? I don’t remember seeing this on the original release of the movie, I think that it was part of the extras from the DVD. I can’t be sure. The scene is now color corrected to be more blueish as the rest of the film, more grim. Please let me know if I am the only one.
