I know it’s rude to say this, but I feel like no one should answer this question.

Naw… not rude at all… That seems to be the common answer. You’re good friend! 😃

I notice that in the wide shot, the lights on the sides of the wall struts are a grey color, while they’re closer to pure white in close ups. Are you planning to brighten them up slightly in the wide shot to match? I think it would really make those struts pop.

How long does this takes?
Couple of days, a week maybe, depending on travel distance

So basically nothing here suggests that months need to pass, yet alone a year or more.

Yoda right before Luke fights Vader: Luke! You must complete the training[…]Only a fully trained Jedi Knight with the Force as his ally will conquer Vader and his Emperor.

Yoda a few days later, after Luke gets his ass handed to him by Vader: No more training do you require. Already know you that which you need[…]One thing remains. Vader. You must…confront…Vader.

Sorry dude, but that makes no sense. Either Luke spent some time training on his own while he was busy working with the rebellion, making plans to free Han, and coping with the world-shattering revelation that his dad is Space Hitler…or Yoda has a bad case of Alzheimer’s.

I always took it as being quite a while after Empire, maybe several months. It’s possible Luke has returned to train with Yoda or on his own. I also think Luke passed a major test in his journey as a Jedi. He resisted the ultimate temptation. Yes, he had his “ass handed to him”, but he didn’t succumb to the temptations of the darkside, and was ready to give his life, rather than turn evil.

I honestly think that was surprising to Yoda, that Luke wasn’t tempted. If we’re to believe his training was more than just being a great fighter, then I don’t have a problem with Luke showing up as wiser and more capable.

In a way, Luke denying Vader’s temptation proved that the force was his ally. That was a major piece of the puzzle for the completion of his training. The final piece being to face Vader again, after having found the truth. I don’t know if Yoda thought he could bring Vader back to good, but I like to think Yoda and Obi-Wan had some foresight.

"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas

I would guess at least a year of time passes. Also keep in mind Yoda didn’t seem sick in ESB but by the time of ROTJ he is on his deathbed.

I’m looking forward to the Marvel comics eventually diving into the time period between ESB & ROTJ. I know the EU covered the time period already but it will be interesting to see a fresh take on that era.

I recently watched you’re Revisits for ANH and ESB and after seeing those I began thinking about some of the changes you may be making to ROTJ, one thing recently introduced into the new canon was the replacement of Nik Sant with Captain Rex from the animated Clone Wars television series, Dave Filoni the producer/director confirming the Rebel on Endor ‘Nik Sant’ was indeed him.

Wondering if it is possible to edit Nik Sant and make his appearance more similar to Rex to fit with the continuity of new canon. In the canon animated series ‘Star Wars: Galaxy Of Adventures’ they made Nik Sant appear more like Rex from Star Wars Rebels, so again wondering if it is possible to recolour his appearance, perhaps skin tone, hair colour etc and blue painted armour.

If I recall correctly, Adywan said that he will NOT be entertaining that inclusion, and rather leave the appearance as it was in the original film. That way, if you as an individual want to see him as Captain Rex, then that works just fine. It’s immaterial to the story ROTJ is telling and would simply be an Easter Egg for fans. The cost to do what you suggest will be better spent on the B-wing attack and Endor ground battle additions with the added efx for a new destruction of the Executor.

I find your lack of faith…disturbing

Sail Barge and The Emperor’s Arrival Comparison Video:

This is how the colour grading for ROTJ:R is getting on. This really does show just how bad the grading of the official Blu-Ray for this film is. It goes from having magenta tint/ over saturated reds to a heavy blue/ cyan cast that, in the opening shot of the TIE’s approaching the Death Star, has completely wiped out any of the other colours that should be there. The swicthes to oversaturated blues and a heavy cyan tint that makes the stormtroopers etc no longer their true white colour. Cyan Scoutroopers?

Even that matte in the DSII hangar hasn’t aged well! What is wrong with ROTJ matte paintings?!

I like the grading and no doubt it look like the original, just can’t help but feel that the stormtroopers now look too yellow now. I don’t suppose you would go for a middle ground between blue ST and yellow ones (too clarify im not suggesting green ones).

It looks the same on my cell phone.

Is Adywan going to release the Blu Ray cut with this gorgeous color grading?

OK so yeah, this is what i mean:

Now, I think the shadows might be a bit to dark, but that might be a side effect of how they produced such a the HD image from old film reals. That aside if you look at Adywan’s colour grade you can see how the lights behind the emperor are a yellow white while the diffused light bouncing of the ship is tinted blue. I believe this is because they actually had blue-white lighting on set for this movie, rather than the yellower lights that most movie sets used back in the 70s.
So (correct me if I’m wrong) but this shows that the regrade might be slightly over done, as the lights should not have a yellow tint if they are producing a blue glow. Also the 4K83 is based directly off of original film copies so if there is any accurate grading out there, I would say it is the 4K83.
I hope this is helpful and seen as constructive criticism, and I feel like this can’t be said enough but good luck Ady and I hope you’re having fun.

I did try to explain on some of the comments on the facebook page that something is throwing off my regrade on the comparison shots that have a strong cyan tint in the blu-rays. Whether its something to do with how the site recompresses the video or what it was i don’t know. But the whites had a yellowish tint in places that is NOT on the files i’m working with.

FINAL EVER LARGE DONATION DRIVE FOR MATERIALS NEEDED FOR ROTJ:R & ANH:RHD AND PRIZE DRAW

The final ever large donation drive is now on.

Now that the B-Wing Pilot shoot is well and truly out of the way and the colour grading is complete on ANH & past the halfway stage for ROTJ, I can now get down to work on all the models, miniature sets, costumes, props etc needed for theses edits. Along with creating those, there is also the Endor Rebels shoot that needs things creating for it (costumes, props etc). So it’s full steam ahead now Sadly having to start from scratch for the HD version of ANH is a bit of a pain, but at least not many things need creating for that edit. But it’s a different matter with ROTJ.

Over the next week or so I will be making posts going into detail about some of the changes/ fixes planned for ROTJ:R. One of the things that really need replacing with miniatures is the Millennium Falcon mattes in the Home One hangar (along with the whole hangar matte).

As I will now be working at a scale of at least 1/48, these are going to be a LOT bigger than what I created for ESB:R, but the extra detail is needed when working with more close-up shots.

After being able to sell a few of the items that I put up for grabs recently and with money I can personally put into it, the needed target for the donation drive is just over £4000

So what will the money be used for? Well every penny donated does directly to material only. No one will ever profit from these edits. So , for example, things like catering and the travelling expenses for the B-wing live action shoot, came out of our own pockets and no donations were used. Things I will need to purchase is LOTS of Silicone, resin, paints, glue, MDF and other wood materials, amongst many other things. Doing these donations drive enables me to purchase materials at bulk, instead of being able to only purchase small amounts when I have available funds. This save a Hell of a lot of money on postage costs alone. As I usually purchase the silicone/ resin materials from the same place, this can save hundreds on postage and bulk buying discounts.

Then there is something that is really needed: Drive space. As you can see in the pictured below, space is becoming limited. With my 2 6TB External hard drives used up containing the backup of all the files for ESB:R, I need to get a few more for the backups of ANH:RHD & ROTJ:R as I go along. Then there is the space needed to create these edits. So I need to replace the smaller internal hard drives with newer. Much larger ones. Doing two edits in HD at once really eats up space.

As this is the final large donation drive we will ever be doing , the prize for the donation draw is the biggest one we have given away yet.
One lucky winner will receive one of the full costumes that was created for the B-wing Pilot shoot for ROTJ:R

The costume consists of pilot vest, belt, gloves, a genuine ANH-H-15 pilot cap (modified slightly with softer ear covers and to fit both larger and smaller head sizes) , Flight Suit, chest plate and pilot helmet. The pilot helmet was created for our Blue Two pilot, but sadly we lost Jen due to a scheduling conflict , so this is the only thing that wasn’t used and also has the orange visor that was created as a test to see how the dying process would look. The only things missing from being a full suit are the Gaiters , boots and the rectangular box that goes on the belt. These are things that didn’t need creating as they wouldn’t be seen on screen, so a waste of money.

Because I had to make various sizes of the flight suit for the shoot, the winner will have a choice of sizes: S, M, L, XL & XXL. The vest, belt and ejection straps are all adjustable so will fit most sizes.

There will be 2 runners up prizes . Each will receive one of the B-Wing chest boxes used in the shoot.

For each donation of £10, you will receive a ticket that will go into the final draw. The more tickets, the better the chance. If you donate on more than one occasion, then the total you donate will be added up and divided by ten to give your ticket amount.

So how can you donate?

Well there’s a new way of donating thanks to Paypal’s new Money Pool. If donating with GBP, then Paypal doesn’t take any fees from the amount, unlike going through the donation button as before. So if you can donate using GBP then that would be a great help. But if you can’t then this way they still don’t take a huge amount off for their conversion fees. You can donate through the Money Pool using this link:

https://paypal.me/pools/c/8fZda4Wcai
If you can’t for some reason donate through this link then you can still donate by clicking on one of the Paypal donate buttons on the right hand side of the Revisited Wordpress page here:

https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/
When donating can you please include your name soi I can add you to the end credits for ROTJ:R please.

Once the donation target has been reached, then it will closed. The prize draw will take place shortly after than and winners notified straight after

Thank you to all who have supported me over all these years.

P.S. Don;t worry if the Money Pool page says “Penny Sayce”. The Paypal account is in my wifes name and i took it over but i am unable to alter the account name
