OT Saga extended Edition

Time

So for a long time (decades) I have alwayse wanted to watch The original Trilogy Movies with Deleted Scenes and what not but there doesn’t seem to be a good option, and sick it seems I have some time on my hands, and finally got descent internet. I’m going to try to take a crack at it. But I will need some help.
First I need suggestions on what version of the movies to use as a base. What I have in mind are film transfers, something a bit dirty as the deleted scenes are dirty beyond repair and I think that will help not make their insertion so jarring.

Second I will need any info on scenes I do not have listed or that I have listed and cannot find quality examples of.

Third I may need suggestion or straight up help on cleaning some scenes and maybe even adding at least some color to black and white scenes

The List
Coming soon***

Best source to use to blend a bit better with the deleted scenes would be something like the Silver Screen Edition. Both versions of 4K77 are too clean IMO, even the non-DNR version, to match without doing extensive cleanup work on the deleted scenes. Unless you want to artificially “dirty” up 4K77 or Despecialized, but I don’t see the point when you’ve got the SSE available.

Grindhouse for ESB would provide an equivalent source for that. For ROTJ, though, you probably will need to dirty up one of your primary sources to match the deleted scenes, but the ROTJ Grindhouse would be your best bet to start off with. It’s much cleaner than the SSE or ESB Grindhouse, though.

This sounds quite interesting.

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

somthing id love to see (that i know will never happen) is the reinsertion of the jabba and han scene, without the 2 horrible CGI jabbas, use the original footage as a refference, and reconstruct the background digitaly, tracking it to the camera, and adding in a better jabba model, somthing with closer textures

This edit will have the Ian McClleand version of the Jabba Scene in it. Reason: Its my Edit. I personally would like to make a custom cleaned version of this particular scene where he doesn’t call him Jabba for an after credits scene on another (never to be completed) project. But… I may have him not call him Jabba in this one on the fence about it.

Perhaps go the radio drama way, where he wasent jabba, but i belive a mercinary/bounty hunter sent by jabba, somthing else id love to see, is a recut of the greedo scene, without the SE awkward “doge the laser” bit, but instead cutting ot an insert (probably a custom element) close-up of han holding his D-11 slightly above his waste and firing, cut quickly to be close to how a western gunslinger would be like

Han will certainly not be dodging a shot from greedo. Because Greedo never got a shot off. And any one who says otherwise will be banned from watching my edit!!! JK . But sorry won’t be doing that gunslinger bit, perhaps one day someone will make a Sergio Leone cut “The Luke, The Han, and the Vader!” Scored with Enniomorricone and full of long face closeups. And unsync the dialogue a bit.

I have a friend (username Notelu) who has plans on Restoring the Deleted Scenes and make his own extended cut. He and I are currently working on a different restoration project, but after that, he’ll start working on the extended cut

Progress report (since you asked)
Still in research Phaze, the real problem is there are many decisions to make. My philosophy is keep it simple stupid but the more I look the more I want to add…
So starting with the base, it will likely be an 8mm or 16mm source but likely a combination of both. I want to use the 8mm sound though as it has several differences from the others
Here is what I have for source material
Star Wars Derann Super 8mm Preservation
TN1 presents Poita’s SW Super 8mm Grindhouse v1
Puggo Grande
Puggo Strikes Back
Return of the Puggo
Harmy’s despecialized editions
Ady’s revisited SW and ESB
TN1 SW grind house 1.6
TN1 ESB grindhouse.
All 3 on Blu-Ray
Blu-Ray deleted scenes
Star wars begins
Building empire
Returning to Jedi
All three rinzler ebook scenes
Random youtube/viemo stuffs
Star wars the cutting room floor

If there is something else I should look at or consider as source material please let me know.

As far as what scenes to put in I’m concentrating on original Star Wars for right now:
Treadwell scene with radio drama audio
Toche station
Reunite with Biggs
Vader widens the search
Shots of Jenny in the bar with solo
Ponda Boba head instead of arm
Original Jabba scene, or what can be salvaged
Slightly longer destruction of alderan
Casual stroll past imperial officers
Reunite with bigg plus I flew with your father part.
Maybe a few slightly extended scenes here and there.
Blue milk? Maybe but not sure where it goes.
Can anyone point me to a simple grain plate / added film dirt tutorial, I will need it to replace the dirty sources anywhere there is a starfield, none are good enough to use, but look awsome otherwise

i wouldent recomend using audio from the radio drama, ive attemppted to edit the tosche station scene arrorund it and it just dosent fit well, maby a few of luke’s gruts and observations during the battle ahead but, attempting to replace any dialoque would be rough, if you where to use the 97 jabba scene, id say cut out “your a wonderful human being” specifically human, and morph the cuts together.
