I wanted to share a thought I had earlier today after I watched some old trailers from the Editdroid 4-disc extras, which Adywan has posted to a.b.starwars. I almost hate to bring it back up, as it involves the green AT-AT laser debate, but this really struck me as a Holy S__t moment, so I wanted to share it here and hopefully get an explanation. I was watching disc 3 of the Editdroid extras, which contains many different trailers for the original trilogy. Suddenly, as I was watching the german trailer for The Empire Strikes Back, my jaw dropped. There were a few seconds of footage of the Hoth battle, and the AT-ATs were firing green lasers. I kid you not. There was the shot when some blasts hit a Rebel turret, and other blasts zip by, and they were all green.

Hey there, Oldfan,

Is this available for torrenting?  If so, you don't have to post a link, just say yes and nudge a shoulder towards M(ininova) or PB (Pirate Bay).  I and others can find it from there.

i can't believe the "green laser" debate is still going. lol.  It was very interesting seeing those couple of shots with green lasers from the early trailer though, but i don't think they ever actually intended to go with the green lasers. Sometimes when trying to get a trailer ready in time they go with unfinished FX (which is clearly evident in early trailers). A lot of the lightsabers haven't even been rotoscoped in the trailers, so it could just have been an error of the FX department, or just test FX that were used.

While the green lasers would make more sense and help distinguish between the rebels laserfire, red just looks more powerful than green.

RE the Luke with a blue saber in Jedi, that was changed simply because the blue did not stand up well against the Tattooine blue sky.  My assumption would be that the green was changed to red on Hoth for a similar reason.

I always took it that Luke had to build a new saber because Ben had his in ANH.  When he was struck down he obviously couldn't get it.

To put it more nicely:

Luke's new saber was going to be blue and the only saber colors were going to be blue and red.  But when the blue washed into the sky, they changed his new saber to be green.  He was going to get a new lightsaber anyway, it doesn't matter what color it was.


EDIT: Upon reading it again, you forget that Luke had his father's lightsaber from when Ben gave it to him in his hut to Luke's hand being cut off.  That's why he had to build a new saber.  You know, I used to think the same thing growing up.  Not sure why.

But he had a saber in Empire...So, I don't get it??  Unless you missed a whole film. From Star Wars to Jedi so to speak!

I think you should CG Lucas into at least 10 scenes of the movie. Kind of a "Where's Waldo" idea, only with George.

I'm completely blanking now.  Is the saber blue or green in Empire?  Blue, right?  This is what I get for trying to participate in a conversation while at a meeting.  Oh well.

Oh right...Yep, that makes more sense now! 

;)

 

You edited your last post.....

 

It's blue...the same one he had in ANH. He made a new one after losing it with his hand on Bespin. 

 

You sure you've seen these films..;)

Okay.  Luke has the SAME saber in ANH and ESB.  Ben had his OWN saber in ANH, which was lost upon his death.  In ESB, when Luke's hand was lopped off, he lost his [father's] saber, thus requiring him to build a NEW one in ROTJ, which was originally meant to be blue since blue = good and red = evil for ANH+ESB.  But the blue did not stand out well against the blue sky on Tattooine, so, since it was an all-new lightsaber anyway, Lucas decided to change it from blue to green.

There.  Why were we arguing about that again?

Exactly. Plus, it has become somewhat of a companion to this project, and therefore I deem it necessary to retain it.

Ady - I say we really take it back to old school and make Luke's lightsaber YELLOW throughout the whole film - Oh and go back to Star Wars and redo that saber and Ben's too! My old Kenner toys couldn't have been wrong! (Just kidding)

Yeah! And while he's at it, he should digitally colour Luke's hair blonde...

Monroville, as far as I know, the Editdroid set is not available on torrents at the moment. They probably were at some point, but I have looked before, and couldn't find them. I myself have not posted a torrent. Right now they are available through the newsgroups on alt.binaries.starwars , thanks to Adywan.

 EXACTLY! The green lasers is an interesting idea, but the green laser bolts look really weak compared to the red ones.

funny how people think lukes saber was changed TO green for contrast reasons

and people also think AT-AT lasers were changed FROM green for contrast reasons

both mostly against a blue background

just strikes me funny

still i suppose they couldn't very well give luke a red saber

Uhhh, snowflake?  What is this in reference to? Also, has anyone wondered what the hell those red dudes around the Emperor in ROTJ were supposed to be (you know, Darth Solo's avatar)?  Yeah, I know they were SUPPOSED to be his guards, but being that Darth kinda threw him down a pit and other than the guest appearances they don't do anything.

Adywan: I know this is ROTJ and not EMPIRE, but when you finally get to ROTJ, just delete those guys out.  I know it's 3 or so years from now, but there's no point in showing a gun on the wall if you're not going to use it (as John Ford would say).

Is this what you are talking about?  Also, how do I download them?  Whenever I click on a link, I just bounce back and forth to various info pages.  There are no links to download anything!
