I read it as tongue-in-cheek, FWIW.

Darn it! Glad I could help even if only a little bit!

So it’s been bugging me for a while that it’s almost impossible to find a good quality theatrical version of this movie. This thread gave me hope that I might see it in all it’s glory again sometime soon. Is this completed or still in the works? Either way I can’t wait to eventually see this when done.

Could anyone please help me get a working download link to an unaltered HDTV version of The Phantom Menace? All the torrents or file sharing services’ links that used to work are now dead 😦 I am interested in all these projects as well, but I would really want to have the HDTV version first. That is the best we got besides these projects, right? Unfortunately, most of these projects, while they fix a lot, they mess up on other stuff at the same time, and so I still prefer the HDTV version. So disappointed by the official blu ray releases 😦 Whose idea was it to make everything look so very very bad. I thought they had sensible professionals doing those color and image quality corrections. Apparently not.

THIS. I would also love to know how to get this. I want to watch this movie in it’s purest form. The Blu-Ray version looks awful.

Just, wow! I’m surprised anyone would be able to recreate the Original Theatrical Version of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. I am really tempted to have it. Thank you.

P.S. Now, if only you could recreate the Original Theatrical Version of Episodes II and III, the entire Prequel Trilogy could be restored.

Theatrical version of ROTS exists. It’s just the HDTV with the missing wipe restored. Schorman did it.

I also think there are differences in the crawl timing. Not to mention that the Blu Ray is a higher quality source than the HDTV rip.

Never heard about the crawl timing thing, and there is a high-quality theatrical bootleg out there to compare to IIRC. And the BR could be used as a source except for the altered rooftops on Kashyyyk, and the audio in the Utapau clone arrival scene.

Plus, the HDTV copy is much higher quality than most. But yeah, BR would be better overall.

I guess a despecialized version wouldn’t be too difficult to put together. Hahaha, maybe Harmy will have a go at the Prequels if he ever finishes 3.0

I mean, no need for it to be someone with Harmy’s level of skills. Anyone could make a theatrical ROTS version if they so wish, just replace a couple of seconds of audio and use a few HDTV shots and you got it.

And sorry if derailing your thread, Chewielewis.

I really want a preview copy of this, so please send a link to me.

There’s no difference in the crawl timing between the Workprint bootleg, the DVD, the HDTV versions, the Blu Ray, the Streaming versions, or the Theatrical DTS CD audio for that matter. They are frame-for-frame identical. I’m not sure where you’re getting that idea.

For what it’s worth, the Blu Ray has more DNR than the HDTV master has.

If I had some gum, I’d chew a hole into the sun…

Count me in as someone interested in acquiring the download link. 😃

I’m planning to do a Star Wars countdown with friends over the months. The only theatrical cut I have of this is an old VHS widescreen copy, but if there’s a chance to get this in a quality relative to LD or HD…

Palpatine voice: I look forward to watching it with great interest.

Zig Zig uploaded a composite HDTV relative to LD on spleen that you might want to check out.

PS, I also wanna copy. Pretty please, sugar on top?

Man I wish I had access to myspleen. I’d like to see that.

Also, yes please. I call 3rd in line for a copy if they’re going! I’ll bake you a Jar Jar cake!

I would also love a download link. A marathon is in the works before 9 releases and It’d be great to screen this for my friends. Thanks!

I made this account just to reply. Long story short I’d love a download link.

I cannot thank you enough for what you’re doing. Thank you.
