Did you watch the video I quoted? It doesn’t replace anything, just adds the March to the “gap” in the existing music.

I think I did a little while back during a previous visit to this thread, watched it again though as I couldn’t remember exactly what was changed.

While I think it works pretty well, at the same time I don’t like it as it DOES actually replace original music that is effectively announcing the arrival of Vader and setting the tone for how you should feel about him. The piece of music I refer to is in the first 8 or so seconds of the youtube link I posted above which also ties into the piece that follows it at around the 15 second mark as Vader walks off but it is cut off by the editing of the youtube video.

You know, this could be a totally non controversial change since there is no need to video edit anything to implement it, hence an alternate audio track would be far enough.

(I’m considering it for Hal’s upcoming ANH hybrid version)

(I’ll ask INVAR if he can provide his audio project for anyone interested)

“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.

Does anyone else have a/v sync issues? It’s mildly noticeable throughout (like less than 2 milliseconds, but it’s there), and really bad in a few scenes (like when Han and Leia are arguing in the hyperspace tunnel about reward).

I’m not sure if it’s the files themselves or my computer. I got both the DVD-5 and DVD-9 from the Star Wars Revisited News page https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/how-to-get-revisited/

Since the PT won’t be relevant to OT:R, which canyon matte will be used for this shot that R2 travels through in ANH:RHD?
ANH:R

SE/Blu-ray

Theatrical

The matte for ANH:R was made to match closer to what Tatooine looked like in the PT.

Just my personal opinion, but I think the current ANH:R looks great.

I agree.

Also, not sure if Ady has answered this, but is the Imperial March being kept in the Death Star reveal, given the full march treatment of the Death Star theme in Rogue One?

I am wondering this myself. I almost feel as though “The Imperial March” should NOT be in A New Hope, perhaps with the only exception being when Vader is on the screen — the theme has been closely tied with Vader and his leadership of the fleet.

However, after Rogue One, they chose to embrace the classic Death Star 1 theme (dun, dun dun dun!) and also introduced “The Imperial Suite,” which almost seems more like an appropriate theme for the Empire in the time of Tarkin.

I would personally like to see The Imperial Suite in ANH:R HD, and keep The Imperial March out of it (with the exception, perhaps, being when Vader makes a move — maybe the lightsaber battle with Obi-Wan or when Vader hops into his TIE fighter).

By the way, here’s the theme I’m referring to (“The Imperial Suite”):

I beleive the The Imperial March is also in Solo when he is inlisting.

I don’t think that the Imperial March needs to be added to that scene.
Part of what I like about the OT is that not every second of screen time has to have music or something zipping around.
It’s nice to allow things to be quiet every now and then and let the movie breathe and develop.

I agree for the most part, but I think adding that version of the March to Vader’s entrance does more good than harm. I like it better than the full March used during the Battle of Yavin in ANH:R as it is now.
