I dare say you are more interested in ARSE than ROTJR I will send you a donation but I feel your are more interested in this which to be honest I can completely understand never the less ROTJR is something that absolutely has to happen.

Thanks Ronster. I’m not sure why you would think i’d be more interested in redoing soemthing i had already finished once over starting something fresh and exciting though.

I guess but i think there are a few small opportunities to avoid it being a complete carbon copy of your previous effort and as you say I guess re-doing stuff might be a bit of a chore or a bit laborious. Some changes will noticeably perhaps not re-use footage and be re-done. I also doubt you will use 2d images for ships and probably have 3D versions?

I believe it will be much better and refined on the second time around. Atleast that is what i think. It won’t be as exciting for you as that first effort but i think it will be much better this time around but i also think it might be less radical than the first effort.

You don’t think it will be as exciting for him to go back after everything he’s learned in the last 10 years and basically do it for real? I’d be excited.

Well of course I am excited… He is implying he is not as excited perhaps?

Sitting and reflecting on art of this type yields better results in my opinion.

Looking forward to whatever comes from any of these endeavours.

I dunno where some are getting the idea that this will be a “carbon copy” of the first version. Ady’s listed plenty of new changes, fixes and some dialing back of a few things. Also, nothing from the first version can carry over because it’s in SD. Everything will have to be done again, and with his new set of skills, those changes will undoubtedly be different and even better in this new version. No 2D ships copied from other films! No planets and explosions from other films! New stuff! Better methods! Better results! Reasons to be excited!

So he’s not going to use the destruction of the Asgard planet Orilla from SG-1 in place of OG Alderaan, but something else entirely?

I don’t know if that explosion is even available in HD.
But I don’t think he wants anything identifiable from anything else. Like the stardestroyers from ESB that were used- it made a cool looking shot, but I knew where those were from and it took me out of the moment and into the creation a bit too much. I’m very excited and interested to see these shots replaced with truly brand new shots of star destroyers, TIEs, ect.

For myself, I liked that explosion. I don’t know what it would look like upscaled.

The new Yavin Death Star battle is what I’m most excited for. Watching ESB:R proves how drastically more impressive Ady’s skills are now.

Yeah, as amazing as the final battle is in ANH:R I can only imagine how much better it will be in this next version.

I’d like to ask about…

No, it’s ROTJ that only has three. The others have four and I’m hoping he’ll add one to ROTJ.
(that’s probably not what you meant, but.)

Haha!

But seriously, that’s always annoyed me about ROTJ way more than it probably should….

I’ve never noticed it nor would I ever even think to look for something like that.

Thanks a lot guys guess I’m never watching this film again.

Could someone please enlighten me to this 3 vs 4 thing? It’s either not obvious enough or I’m not as avid a SW fan as you guys are ;P

Dots at the end of the crawl

Yeah, I would’ve never in a million years have noticed that.

Really? Wow, that’s gotta be the sign of a serious fan editor or someone that has watched the movies more times than is healthy…or simply has a mind for noticing such minute, micro things during the main viewing experience 😉

But yeah, Ady you gotta fix that shit! Now that I know I’m going to twitch every time I see it! 😛

Or it could be the sign of someone who heard about it at some point. 😉

I noticed it one day when making a custom DVD cover that used the crawls about a decade ago and I’ve never been able to unsee it. Sticks out just as much as AOTC’s upward tilt, IMO.

To be honest it dragged the movie down from a 6/10 to a 5/10 for me.

I never knew Adywan pulled his Alderaan explosion from something else-it worked out great. I haven’t watched it in a while, but I remember thinking way back when that the planet explosion in Titan AE would be a good substitution for Alderaan.

Author

Well, probably not. I just watched the clip on Youtube and it’s more animated than I remembered.

So I had a thought, likely something that won’t even end up in Adywan’s revamp, but something that is nevertheless worth considering in my opinion. I’ve been rereading the original Star Wars novel, and I still love it. It’s a good book with its own unique traits and insight into Star Wars.

Now, as is well known, there were 30 ships involved in the assault on the Death Star (“We count 30 ships, Lord Vader, but they’re so small they’re evading our turbolasers,” both in the novel and film). Additionally, we see unique pilots with different helmets during the takeoff from Yavin, pilots and helmets we never see again. In the end, we see two X-wings (obviously Luke and Wedge) and a mysterious Y-wing return to Yavin. According to the novel, there were four squadrons involved in the attack, as evidenced by, Dodonna saying during the briefing, “Yellow squadron will cover for Red on the first run. Green will cover Blue in the second.” As is well known, Luke was part of a 12 man X-wing squadron assigned the Blue designation (changed to Red for the film), and the Y-wings who made the first trench run were part of Red squadron (changed to Gold for the film). But we see none of the interference run by the other two squadrons.

I can’t help but wonder what it would have been like to see more of the other two groups’ involvement. It wouldn’t have to be much, but it sure would be nice to see a slightly extended battle as we already have in ANH:R, but with newly filmed pilots (with helmets like those in the Yavin hangar) in cockpits engaging and distracting the TIE fighters, taking part in radio chatter, perhaps every now and then even making encouraging comments to Red and Gold squadrons. I feel this could be done without destroying the pacing of the battle if worked in carefully. But it would involve a great deal of unique visuals and building at least one cockpit for filming.

I just looked this up: according to EU sources, Blue and Green would have distracted Imperials by attacking the superlaser. Though I’m sure most here are not fans of the EU (and my fandom does not extend particularly far), this would be an interesting way to interpret it, as such an attack could not afford to be ignored by the Imperials and really could provide some freedom for the more important but less threatening (in appearance) trench run. I understand that dragging out the battle could potentially damage the tension felt by the audience, but I wonder if it could be pulled off without such problems. I know I’d really like to see something like this.

I feel like a broken record bringing this up, but no one has ever commented on the idea, and discussion in another thread reminded me of this idea yet again. I really think it has merit and I hope Ady will consider it, especially since he’s building cockpits for ROTJ:R.
