I’ve got a copy. I’ll dig it out and get it on Myspleen when I have a chance.

Me, too? I would love this so much!

It’s already up on the previously mentioned organ.

Sadly for me, reading this thread is the first time I ever heard of that previously mentioned organ. I am trying to wrangle an invite. Booshman, thank you so much for putting it up there!

Extended Zeist Version -

This verison was created with the idea of adding the “kitchen sink” to the "Renegade Version of the film. This version is basically an extended version which follows the story line of the “Renegade Version” but adds and extends scenes. This edit retains the “orange shield effects”  trying to make it clear that is is an extended renegade based version. We have added all the Planet Zeist, Quickening and Prize dialog and footage back into the film.  This version even included the_Cannes footage_ and all the deleted scenes back in the film. Yes, there is alternate footage in the Cannes 10 minute trailer(take a look, it’s cool) some of the footage is really cool- includes some extened quickening explosions, cars exploding, an extended scene were Connor pulls out his sword in the warehouse when the cab driver drops from the ceiling, extended Brenda, etc.  (take a look)

At first this was a full blown DL DVD -9 with commentary from us about the edit as well as the original score, soundtrack, deleted scenes, enhanced deleted scenes, TV spot , two trailers (including a restored French trailer) and the “To be or not to be” documentary. We also even had a text commentary ( like the Superman II RIC DVD) breaking down each added scene since there was over 20 minutes that was added to the film. This version would have been released with the European scenes in 1:85.1 (this was because wee used the old Japanese DVD footage) So NOW we were ready to go and release it to all of you!  RIGHT? WRONG! When were were getting set to put the film on that demon place a guy by the name of TRACK100 (who is credited on the SDDVD-5 ) found an old <span style=“text-decoration: underline;”>widescreen</span> transfer of the European version from a laserdisc (In Italian only) in not to bad quality.  This version had the opening credits and endning credits in Italian (becuase this was the way it was released in Italy in theatres)  but keep in mind we needed only the alternate footage that didn’t exist in the other versions only. So now we postponed the release and had to add in all these widescreen scenes, not to mention color correct, enhance, etc.  When we finished we decided that more people would download the film if it was a SLDVD-5 so we cut all the extra features except, the restored trailer, enhanced deleted scenes and the ever popular recreation of the extended script version of the “fairytale” ending. (which was now possible because of the officially released deleted scenes on the 2006 DVD SE)

I have the Special Zeist Edition, thank you so much Booshman! Tremendously interested in the Extended one, too.

This project was concluded years ago. In fact, our original Extended Zeist Edition trailer just celebrated it’s 10th Anniversary on youtube.com

There was once some cool covers but I have been unable to locate them as of late.

Note:
All of the cuts include the best possible sources at the time. Some were sourced with VHS, BETA, LD, DVD, Bluray, workprint, 16 mmm source and what ever else we could find.

It was a long process and we enjoyed that time in or lives. Many helped us includeing Fanfiltraion and a few others that I forget but are noted on the discs.

My personal favorite is the Restored Early Version

I love when Conner enters the wherehouse and Katana is baiting him with a speech not heard in other edits as he searches for him.

“Power, I have it, while you’ve been crushed it’s weight, I will survive, you will not, you’re a very lucky man Macleod few men know when there about to die”

Just always, thank you. Are you guys aware of the Highlander Rewatched podcast? Maybe they’d love to see these, too.

Hi! Could anybody help to share the torrent of Super Zeist Edition of the movie?

HI - I am such a fan of the Highlander 2 SE DVD! It almost corrects all of the ills of the US theatrical release but I have always felt that the editing out and around the Zeist plot points really harms the end product.

I know this is a long shot but would anyone be willing to post the SPECIAL ZEIST EDITION to myspleen and send me an invite? I have never used that site but barring a dvd I am not sure how else I will ever be able to see this… Can anyone help please?

I would also be willing to pay for shippinng etc if anyone has a dvd of this burned and could send it out. Please send me a message.

Thanks in advance!

PS If I had anything to trade I def would… but I generally just stick to what the suits release… only two exceptions were a Superman IV reconstruction adding all of the missing footage and some comic panels (editor did a great job but the added footage itself is dreadful and deserved to be cut) and an edit of Superman III and IV where the editor tried to edit those two films together to make one decent movie (that didn’t work for me from the narrative perspective but the edit was well done). Unfortunately IMO from the Superman perspective no improving those two films…

Covering the cost of discs and shipping is acceptable - though most projects seem to be available via a download link these days…

Hello, i have been unable to find these edits anywhere! Anyone able to share a public torrent link or MySpleen invite for access to this please?! Either one is fine, you cant even buy the Zeist version anywhere…

wishing that there was an edit that just takes the supercool twin baddies with nose-straps fight scene and finds a way to insert it as a flash-forward/epilogue into the first movie. that’s only really good scene imo.
