I’m looking for the following HD versions if they exist:

  1. Star Wars - The original movie with the exception of starfighter CGI (from the SE) remaining during the Death Star attack.

  2. Empire - Original with Bespin CGI and Ian McDiarmid

  3. Jedi - Original

You’ll have to make this yourself. People who have made semi-specialized versions always seem to include the Tatooine dinosaurs. So much is changed in that film, there would never be a semi consensus, and would just require DIY.

  1. Empire - Original with Bespin CGI and Ian McDiarmid

KK650 says he has a version coming out very soon with Ian’s emperor. I think he also has some of the full Wompa shots in it, though.

  1. Jedi - Original

Harmy’s 2.0 will soon be out.

I can live with the Tatooine dewbacks, which semi-specialized versions are out there?

Kk650 to an extent. Although I plan to eventually make something like what you mentioned for eps 4 and 5 to go along with my (eventual) rotj edit. Although I’ll use telecines versions with the redone lasers. They rock

Nice! I’d like to hear more as you progress. I did find kk650’s version. Not sure about where they’re hosted though. Although I know we can’t discuss that here.

I grabbed kk650’s SW and ROTJ which I’m happy with. I also have Harmy’s ESB.

I would also recommend Hal9000’s ANH, which I’ve only just recently watched. It has very little of the Tatooine sillyness (really just one Ronto shot and the first Dewback). It’s based on Harmy’s 1997 version, though, so what you think of the color will depend on your opinion of that.

The draw of Telecine’s trilogy is the redone lasers and lightsabers. They look great, plus full 1080P. No color correction though, but I must be in the minority here because I don’t mind the special edition colors. KK650’s ANH that I watched seemed a tad too yellow.

My versions are not really technically edits except for some small changes on EP IV. They should be treated as library resources for future edits for brilliant editors… Changing a story or pace is not really ever been my cup of tea… However Enhancing what is already there is what I love doing…

After looking at kk650’s version, I have to agree about the color. Shame too since this is the perfect blend of SE and original footage that I like.

Is there another version that has better colors with similar footage?

I know this is an ancient thread of mine, but I was wondering if any other edits have come out since that might fit what I’m looking for in EpIV?
Essentially the original movie with the SE ships during the battle of Yavin kept in.

I know KK has updated his at least once since then, but I haven’t downloaded any of his work outside of his TPM, LOTR and Terminator regrades, so I can’t vouch for the color on his OT releases.

If I ever finish my project it would probably be what you are looking for.
