Idea: Aaron's STAR WARS: Episode IV, "Revisited" (Legacy Edition - based on Adywan's Revisited)

Hello…

I wanted to start a thread on a side-project which I called, the (Legacy Edition) of Adywan’s “STAR WARS: Revisited.”
Of course, my idea never materialized. Either, not enough people were interested, seen it, or they just ignored it.
So, I started this thread so people could think about my ideas.

Note: This will never become a reality. Adywan said himself, that ANH:R (HD) is his last fan-edit.
Even if I want this to become a reality, I would need to talk to Adywan, himself. Also, I’m
not a fan-editor like him, Harmy, or TN1.

Below is a list of differences that would have been in ANH:R, (HD) Legacy Edition…

• This fan-edit would have been in 720p, like as would the rest of the “Revisited Trilogy.”
(This would replace ANH:R, (SD) that was created in 480p, from the 2004 DVD)

• Also, there would be the utilization of the Original SFX Scenes during the Battle of Yavin.
Like from 4K77… Including the scenery-shot of the Rebel Trooper overlooking the departing X-Wings & Y-Wings.

• Though the SFX Scenes would be from the Original 1977 Version, the Battle of Yavin as-well as the rest of the film,
the SFX Scenes would be recreated using 3D-Models. Like used in the making of ESB:R.

• All the planets and such, including Tatooine, Alderaan, the Death Star, and Yavin Prime w/ Yavin IV. Would be
recreated with the idea of them looking more like what was scene with Hoth, Dagobah, and Bespin in ESB:R.

• The same color-correcting would be used, that would have be similar to what was scene in ANH:R, (SD), with some fixes
from Rouge One. (Not, all aspects)

• Smooth jump-cuts so, it would be more life-like.

• The Audio Track would be a slight fusion in-between, 4K77’s “2.0 DTS-HD-MA (1977 35mm stero mix 2018),” 4K77’s “5.1
DTS-HD-MA (1977 70mm six track mix 2018),” and the Audio Track from ANH:R, (SD).

• Several continuity fixes. For two versions. (1st, stand-alone film) and, (2nd, as being together, with the rest of
the Skywalker Saga)

This would be great. I really liked a lot of the changes Adywan made to ANH (others, not so much like his coloring of the Death Star’s interior scenes). Combining it with 4K77 is a cool idea. I just wish I could get my hands on both Adywan’s ANH HD (if it exists yet) and 4K77. I tried downloading 4K77 it in the way Team Negative recommended, but that didn’t work. And there are barely any seeders on the torrent side of things. Oh well.
If I had what I needed (and the know-how on how to audio mix and do VFX), I’d take a crack at creating your proposed fan edit.

A FEW UPDATES ON CHANGES…

For the planet art design, I’ll attempt to get to DeviantART user, “Alpha-Element…”

The TFC/LFL will be fully replaced. I’m hoping to reach DeviantART user, “VictorTheBlenderMaker” or “logomanseva”
The TFC Logo will be replaced with this, ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlOfxHaLG2M )
Here is what an alternative would look like

Here’s a probably new shot, adding on to the first, and second one.

Yavin Prime & Yavin IV could see a Rouge One makeover!

I am unable to see these pictures since they are file pathways instead of links 😕

It all looks so awesome!
For the Twentieth Century Fox intro, I think this one looks better (if you’re going for the 3D modern look): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXWFYPk11GM

I see what you mean but, if I want that, it would have to be in close relation to the TCF intro in ESB:R.

I finally was able to download 4K77. I’m color correcting it, getting rid of all of the greenish tint that is present in the vast majority of the shots. After I finish that, I’m going to incorporate some of the special edition changes (the ones that are included in Hal9000’s custom special edition of ANH (These are the good changes, so don’t worry. Han shoots first in the edit. 😊))

Yay! The main thing I would like is the Death Star to be battleship-grey, like Adywan colored it in the original.

Just for now, I would like to ask not to implement the Special Edition changes yet…
This is a beta after all.

For the characters, I would follow a mixture of colors between Adywan’s Revisited HD, and the Disney+ Star Wars…

Starting on another upscaling attempt to ANH:R (SD), this time with another program. I hope this one does justice. If so, we could use some scenes as inspiration.

Also, if needed, I believe that this should involve Discord for better communication.

Hey man, I was looking through the photos and the image from RO looks really great! Just thought I’d let you know!

I didn’t do those, I sourced those from Bing.

One thing that always bugged me about Adywan’s color correction on ANH was that the Death Star stuff almost looked black and white. Too much color was taken out of it IMHO
