Help: looking for... Does an OT edit that falls between Ady's & Harmy's projects exist?

I really like what Ady and Harmy are doing with their edits. It’s beyond impressive but after watching both versions I am wanting something else. I actually like some of the added CG scenes from the 97SE (particularly from the Death Star Battle in ANH). Ady’s version is also amazing but I think he went a little too far in adding stuff especially after I watched his version of the Death Star Battle.

Is there a version that is a cut that falls between Ady’s and Harmy’s?

I basically want some of the CG scenes (exteriors/ships) included but do not want some of the horrific GL additions in there.

I’m looking for:

-Han shooting first

-No Jabba scene

-restored/corrected colors and sabers

-no SE Wampa

-original Emperor scene in ESB with Vader

-no awful Jabba’s palace musical number

  • original ROTJ ending (although I don’t mind the 97SE version) but with Shaw back in as Anakin

For ANH, go for Ady's Purist edition. As for the others, I don't know.

Not sure how I missed that Purist edition, I'll take a look thanks!

Harmy did a "party despecialized" edition of each movie awhile back before he had all the tech stuff down. They're all pretty well-constructed and might be what you're looking for.

That's a good idea but I think those might be offline already...

If you can find them, you may also like ADigitalMan's edits or Darth Editous's. They're not theatrical restorations but not as radical as Adywan's work.

I have done a Hybrid version of Revisited & Purist.......Keeps Re-ordered version of Ben's conversation....then cuts to Purist version of Death Star reveal (without Imperial March) & DS briefing room (without Emperors Theme)....cuts back to Revisited up to Ben & Vaders duel....which is the Purist cut (without prequel music).....cut back to Revisited up till the TIE's in formation.....which is purist (without Imperial March).....then on to Revisited for Finale.

What's the name of your edit?

Sorry, it doesn't really have a name, just Adywan's Revisited/Purist Hybrid I suppose, I don't know how to upload the finished edit......I live in UK, but I posted (mailed) a couple of copies to Muddyknees in the US....PM me

If anyone would like to upload this, I'll send you a copy,....send me a PM

I'm looking for the same thing for ANH and ROTJ.  Adywan's ESB theatrical reconstruction is almost flawless, so I'm good there.

I don't need a true theatrical version (although that would be ideal).  

• ANH - I just need Han to shoot first & to get rid of that horrible Jabba scene. 

• ESB - original Emperor (one of the worst additions to the SE.  Makes Vader look like an idiot and completely ruins his entire motivation/character for the movie), original wampa scene, & get rid of new vader-shuttle scene. (thanks Adywan!)

• Rotj - lose new music scene, original sarlaac, Sebastian Shaw.  I like the new music at the end, so I'm ok with the special edition here. 

Basically I just want the best quality version possible while removing all the really bad additions.

I actually think the new Sarlaac is an upgrade.

Anyone know if there's a HD version of the purist edition?

There isn't even an HD version of Revisited, let alone the purist.
