Now that the Blu-Rays are out and reveal some key deleted scenes (some in better quality than others), I’m wondering if anyone is interested in releasing a fan edit that incorporates some of these into the film?
Now someone will argue “but the quality isn’t the greatest! it won’t match!” but who cares… that didn’t stop people from editing together the TV cut of Dune with the DVD and it was awesome, and this is the best these scenes have ever looked, so it’s not like it was before when all we had was Behind the Magic. So sure, music might need to be added, some very basic cleanup/color correction, maybe even some prelim SFX. It would be a big project, but who is game?
It would be flat out awesome to see a new version of the “GOUT” with Luke & Biggs on Tatooine, Chief Bast and Vader talking in the hall, Red leader talking about Luke’s father, etc.
If someone was really ambitious, they could try colorizing the alternate cantina scene (or maybe make the whole movie black & white to match, or perhaps it doesn’t matter, Kill Bill got away with having black and white sequences in a color film).
The screenplay shows where the scenes ought to go.
