It would be cool if we actually saw the Millennium Falcon land near the rebel base, like we saw in Empire Strikes Back

I just had this thought when I was watching ANH:R last night. I understand that you are going to be changing some things between the current form of ANH:R and what will become ANH:R HD. Now what follows isn’t supposed to be inflammatory it was just a thought that I found interesting.

Would you consider the fact that you are tweaking with your version of ANH:R to be almost akin to the way Lucas tweaked with the standard ANH. We’re coming upon the same dilemma where the original ANH:R will not be available in an HD format, just like the OUT is not available in HD formats. You changed your mind about some decisions that were made and want this new HD version to be the definitive version of the films, yet there are people (like me) that would just like to see the current ANH:R but in HD.

I’m not sure this equates completely, but I feel like you could understand Lucas’s mindset on why the Special Editions exist in the first place. I also recall a popular argument for why the Special Editions are bad is because they supersede the Original Versions. That same thing is now going to happen with ANH:R. I’m not trying to be accusatory, I just thought this was something as a community that we could discuss.

What is Adywan tweaking in the ANH:R HD version that you don’t think you’ll like?

This sort of updating editorial choices while upgrading visual or audio quality is fairly common in the fan editing world, though. I don’t see it as quite the same thing, personally.

Unlike the OT, ANHR was made in SD and can only ever be seen that way. Ady is redoing it from practically scratch to make the HD version. So it’s not so much an SE as a different thing entirely. It’s ady’s prerogative to do what he wants with it.

The original version is not possible to rerelease in HD as it was. I forget why, I think the original assets are gone, but regardless, the original version can’t be rereleased. With the Theatrical Versions of the movies, they absolutely can be rereleased.

ANH:RHD is not ANH:R in HD, or ANH:R 2.0, it’s its own project, from scratch, just with the same purpose as ANH:R, and its inspiration. I think that alone justifies making changes.

Hot take: The Force Awakens is in no way, shape or form a rehash or remake of A New Hope.
It’s no more derivative than the average sequel, and is certainly less derivative than the prequels.

I mean, the original effects were rendered at 480p and were done a decade ago 8 hard drives ago, that’s why he has to redo them.

But you’re absolutely right as this is basically a new edit, using the original edit as a guide. Ady has learned a lot in the last decade, so some things he didn’t do as well as he thought he could will be done just as he wants, and faster and better.

Look who is coming back in the HD version of ANH:R…

Using a mixture of the 4k77 release and the official blu-ray, along with addition restoration i did to the 4k77, removing all remaining film damage, Wolfman has now been restored back in the 2 shots they replaced him in the SE’s

And I went ahead and threw away Lak Sivrak’s action figure after he was no longer canon.

Great! Back to the original!

Now that this has been announced, I’m curious about what the changes will be for ANH:RHD that aren’t listed here

https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/2011/04/09/ars-details/

Does anyone have any info? I know during the the Battle of Having the additional scene of the TIE fighters arriving while the Imperial March plays will be removed.

I honestly hope he keeps that because that addition is great.

I hate to clog up this thread, but does anyone have a copy of Adywan’s color corrected ANH which he recently released on the binaries? A PM would do, to avoid further clutter.

I’m excited for this.

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.

Considering no one here mentioned or said anything about the regrade (even 005) such as “watched it yestarday, it’s awesome, etc.”, I assume no one got it.

The 26GB 1080p regrade is now available in alt.binaries.starwars. You can use these instructions to get it, or wait for someone else to distribute them another way.

I really wonder why distributing it this way (which is near impossible to understand) 😕

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

I haven’t seen it personally, but I understand that this distribution is probably easiest for Adywan and I trust that others will share it on ways that are easiest for them. It’s a fan edit, I’m not going to demand for the editor to make it easy.
