I never saw this, but I'm sure some of you folks did. Pretty sweet.

That's awesome....BUT THIS IS HORRIFYING:

Tanaka: I remember when we were working on the Star Wars restoration, that was a different process. I think we optically recreated interpositives. But in order to do this, it went through some kind of warm chemical bath cleansing. The weird thing about Star Wars was that it was made up of different film stocks, so it went through this bath and they didn’t know what would come out on the other end...

Parker: You mean if it would survive or not? ‘George we might destroy your entire film, but it’s... we think it’s going to be OK.’

Tanaka: There’s a space battle shot and a close-up on Hans Solo, and the original negative is coming out of this cleaning solution and it’s just acetate.

Parker: It’s all clear. Oh no, did the bath dissolve it?

Tanaka: Yeah, it dissolved it, depending on the film stock.

Of course, when a lot of capable digital filmmakers get involved, the possibilities of new effects and enhancements—the stuff that director’s cuts and special editions are made of—is on the table. Parker noted that there is at least one VFX shot the team wants to add, but they didn't have time to do so if the goal was a Mill Valley screening.

So attendees and near future viewers can expect an original edit as last seen in 1980.

My God! It's like their go-to is to alter Star Wars related stuff now.
"Oh is that restoration Star Wars related? Well what should we change before the release."

JUST RESTORE! DON'T ALTER!

Indeed.

It reminds me of that mind-boggling story of how all those canisters of film from Blade Runner were sitting on a pallet waiting to be junked and were saved only because the actual order to junk them was never given.

I also heard Universal threw out a lot of their archived film material in the 60's just so they could make more room.

I'm so happy this film survived that my spleen hurts. Ouch!

A picture is worth a thousand words. Post 102 is worth more.

I’m late to the party, but I think this is the best song. Enjoy!

Nope! Just lots and lots of pain in my spleen.

Having just finished watching it, I'll say this much: Now I know who I'd want to see direct a Tales of the Jedi film adaptation.

JEDIT: Just learned Roger Christian was also the director of Battlefield Earth. Let my original comment be stricken from the record.

Well, it's not like he wrote the script for that? ;)

Too bad the short film is so poorly done, if it was more interesting, it would have been worth noting. For now, it is just a footnote.

 Forced to faithfully adapt a terrible, terrible novel, with the executive producer also starring.... NO ONE could have done that well.

Where's that picture I'm so fond of occasionally using? Just a minute ... almost got it ... Ah, here it is!

You're right on that account. Still, I looked up Christian's resume of movies; most of his films have mediocre-to-poor ratings, especially the ones he's made since Battlefield Earth

Wait...someone let him make something after BE?

When I think "short film" I think 7-8 minutes. This is about half an hour. I wouldn't be surprised if there were people who thought "this can't be the star wars section" if they came in really late in the theater.

 I think it would be interesting to see a scan of ESB with this right before it, simply for the original (UK) theatrical experience.
