And for a moment I thought, why shouldn’t ESB:R somehow get this treatment. I understand already that Topaz and re-rendering of shots was done but, the ESB 4K Blu-Ray exists.

Because Adywan someday wants to be done working on these movies.

It looks better in many places because the upscale smoothed some of the hard edges in the Blu-ray, a result of crazy edge enhancement and artificial sharpening applied back in the early 2000s, very common stuff in the DVD era.

Well the reason I posted that was because, since the 4K Blu-Ray sources of ANH and ROTJ will be used for ANH:R and ROTJ:R respectively. And for a moment I thought, why shouldn’t ESB:R somehow get this treatment. I understand already that Topaz and re-rendering of shots was done but, the ESB 4K Blu-Ray exists.

ANH:R is using the 2011 blu-ray as its main source. The 2020 blu-rays are only being used to replace a few shots. The ESB 4k blu-rays look like garbage. The picture has been cropped and horizontally stretched for some unknow reason, horrible static grain throughout and the badly executed use of power windows to brighten or darken certain areas of the frame (the last two plaguing all 3 films). While ROTJ was the worse transfer for the 2011 blu-rays, ESB is for the 2020 versions. If you want to see just how bad the power windows masking has been done, check out ANH during the escape from the Death Star when leia says " we’ve lost the lateral controls". Keep your eye on the falcons windows and you can see the mask isn’t even tracked to the cockpit windows and its not only bleeding all over it , but moving all over the place. The only reason why i’m using the 2020 bluray for ROTJ is because of the huge problems with the 2011 release, but there is so much work to be done to fix all the problems with the new release. Many of the FX shots were re-rendered @ native 1080p for ESB:R 1080p release so it isn’t purely an upscale. And, as the screenshots posted earlier shows, the upscale look better than the native 1080p blu-ray anyway. And i’m certainly not going to go back and spend years redoing ESB just to replace the footage with the inferior 2020 version.

Then why should it matter? Revisited literally looks better then the 4K release of ESB (which looks so desaturated it looks like it was graded by Zack Snyder). The upscale also looks perfect at 1080p. So there’s no issue.

Well, check 34:28. If you look closely at one of the struts that supports the windows of the Falcon’s cockpit, there is an issue there but, I don’t remember what it was, either too smooth, or too bent. (It’s been a while since I saw the 1080p ESB:R…)

But, if there isn’t a issue there, would you mind letting me know?

Well this is the shot @34:28 , so i have no idea what you mean.

Well, maybe I am seeing things.

Also Ady, I wasn’t asking about going back. It was just a thought I had.

Ady, I just want to make it clear that, I still believe that what comes of the Star Wars Revisited Trilogy, I will enjoy.
Just as I’ve enjoyed the SD ANH:R, that I’ve watched for years, countless times.

I’m wondering if there is a version of the Emperor scene with Adywan’s revisited image of the hologram and 2011 blu-ray dialogue?

I don’t think so.

You know, I don’t think it’s even necessary to have that extended bit of dialogue anymore, and I don’t know why it was kept in versions that came out after Revenge of the Sith. I am not sure what the intentions were to have Vader ask “How is that possible?”. In a 2015 canon comic that takes place between Episodes IV and V, Vader asks Boba to investigate more about the pilot who destroyed the Death Star. Boba comes back with the information that his name is “Skywalker.” Vader naturally got VERY angry after hearing it, because Palpatine lied to him about him killing Padmé in his anger on Mustafar, while she was still pregnant, and he had been going on for 20 years with that thought in mind.

I think it is a nice touch, Vador kinda trying to see what the Emperor knows on the subject with that question and he certainly never reported that he knows about Luke to Sidious so it is also a way to cover that he already has tried to get a hold of him.

Guiguioh, I totally agree with you.
That’s why I’m looking for revisited image of the Emperor hologram with 2011 dialogue.

There was one very minor change made to the 1080p version I noticed that I actually like, and that is the removal of the “A News Corporation Company” byline in the 20th Century Fox logo. Personally, it always felt off to me, because by then, in 2017, it was no longer in the official logo, and having it with the modern Lucasfilm logo made it even more out of place. I hope this new 1080p logo sans the byline will be kept for ANH:R HD and ROTJ:R. It really is an absolute BEAUTY.

Because TESB:R is just too good to be true, this is something that I’ve always wanted to know: what are some of the things that didn’t get fixed?

So far I’ve identified four

Star Wars (1977), Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983) were all released/distributed by 20th Century Fox and LucasFilm Ltd. The only Star Wars films that don’t have the 20th Century Fox logo are the sequel trilogy. At-least for these films, in my point of view, the TCF logo is not out of place.

I’m sorry, I should have been more specific. The old 720p version of Empire Revisited has “A News Corporation Company” under the 20th Century Fox logo, but in the current 1080p version, it’s not there.

Well, Ady changed that because 20th Century Fox, since 2013 until 2019/20, was not owned by News Corporation Company. The byline removal happened when Ady was still working on ESB:R and is reminiscent of when he intended a 2011 release.

If the logos matter so much to you edit it in yourself. There’s no need to be this nitpicky about it. I don’t need to get emails about logo discussion.

I know I shouldn’t bring this up again but, I did just realize something. Since you’re using Topaz to improve the existing 2011 Blu-Ray for ANH:R HD, why not attempt the same for ESB:R?

That is if you want to do it, as it is your choice and not mine, or anyone else’s.

(In some of the shots where Leia turns around to rescue Luke from Cloud City, the lighted buttons in the Falcon’s cockpit bleeds together.)

He already did. ESB:R was originally made and released at 720p, but he used Topaz to upscale it to 1080p.

From my knowledge, I thought that Ady used the 2004 DVD Release of ESB for the Revisited Edit, not the 2011 Blu-Ray.
