Hi. I am new. Could someone point me to where I could download a color corrected version of Starwars return of the Jedi Blu-ray or hd dvd or 1997 version? Thanks, I’d do it myself but I don’t know how to do it in a timely matter.

I don’t know of any. Dre is working on a ROTJ colour correction but it’s not done. Adywan has done one for ROTJ Revisited but I don’t think it’s been released. Your best bet is probably the new Disney 4K releases, which have a more natural colour grading. Unfortunately they’re currently exclusive to Disney+ and therefore only available at all in the US and Canada. Hopefully we’ll get them on discs by mid-2020.

But the Disney+ doesn’t have that weird purple tint?

(And hey there’s always screen recording 🤫)

I got a free trial for the Disney plus thing and the colors for episode 4-6 are actually really nice. I say they look a little less vibrant than the despecialized Edition but with some minor color correction I’m sure I could get them to look really similar.
