My personal edit of A New Hope (with SC38 Reimagined) (Released)

So, I’ve been planning a chronological Star Wars marathon of every show and movie, and I really wanted a version of A New Hope that incorporates FXitinPost’s SC38 Reimagined. ForceGhostRecon’s edit was the best one out there, as he did a great trim down of SC38 that makes it less excessive. However, he altered the opening using Rogue One footage, thus rendering his edit incompatible with Rogue One. I wanted a version that adhered to canon and fit with every other movie, including Rogue One, so I decided to make my own edit.

I used ForceGhostRecon’s edit as a base, but restored the original opening, the original Death Star explosion, and the Special Edition scenes. I also made an alternate version that still excludes the Jabba scene (on the one hand, it’s canon, and I kind of dig the bizarre novelty of seeing a CGI alien in a Star Wars movie from 1977, but on the other hand the movie is better without the scene, so I figured I’d just have both options).

I’m really happy with the end result. I feel like the new fight scene between Obi-Wan and Vader really flows well as a follow-up to what we saw Obi-Wan and Vader were capable of in Episode 3, Rebels, and Rogue One. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely mine.

If anyone’s interested in checking it out, feel free to send me a PM.

While Scene 38 Reimagined was a standalone project made just for fun, it does not fit in with the dated look of A New Hope. If you want to put it into an edit of A New Hope, then edit all the VFX, models, practical effects, and matte paintings in the movie to look realistic and in-line with the sequel trilogy and Rogue One.

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

Buzz Lightyear has already explained what his Edit is about - he doesn’t have to do anything you want him to do, or that you think he should do.

 

Buzz, congratulations on finishing your Edit - it has been added to the An Index Thread for Star Wars Fan Edits and Other Projects…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? 
Why don’t you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

That’s exactly what the edit does. It replaces most of the film’s effects with modern VFX to lessen the impact of the scene.

I’d like a link. I’ve seen quite a few edits that make use of this scene, but they always tweek the rest of the movie

Does this have the same bad compression and blocky darks during the duel as ForceGhostRecon’s edit?

Could I get a PM too? Thanks. 🙏🏼
