Well it looks like I will busy next year… Does this look like a Saber from the prequels or did they go back to 1981 and do everything by hand??

I was concerned about the approach they would take with this… THIS is clearly not George’s final light-saber vision. Otherwise he would have made his A-Skywalker saber look like it did in 81 for EP II and III.

I know what i am posting might be controversial but hey that is why this site exists… :}

Glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that. By the way, any updates on your ANH upgrades (sorry if this is considered off topic, but you don't seem to have a thread for it)

Couple of questions regarding this:

  1. Are you still planning on making this?
  2. If so, are you also going to redo the lasers? Because they certainly look different than the PT/Your version of the OT lasers.
  3. Are you going to keep Kylo Ren’s lightsaber the same? I hope so, as I actually think it adds a lot and symbolizes the instability of his character.

  1. Yes

  2. Undecided on the lasers as the tech from a story standpoint has advanced 30 years. Blasters are different except for Han’s. (I think the lasers look ok, does not warrant a significant change.

  3. I am NOT touching Ren’s saber shots, Just blighting up the cores on FIN/RAY’s saber on the wide shots. I think JJ intentionally tried to make it look as it did from ESB on some shots. I have an issue with this art direction because Lucas’s saber Vision has evolved in terms what a light saber should look like since 1981.

4- Potentially controversial so I will have 2 versions of the film with this change and without… I plan on recreating the classic look of the Falcon engines as how the engine glow was larger of the back end of the falcon. (Will try to give it a (NON CG look). Some might disagree with this so I will have 2 versions of the film.

Additional Plans:- AUDIO-

1- Going to mix in more of the original Light saber sound on the first activation of “Luke’s saber”
2- Planning on restoring the original Falcon laser turret blaster sounds. The originals were never used and I not quite sure why as it is the exact same laser.

Potentially more minor changes but I wont know for sure until I buy the BD release where I can look at things at a frame by frame level…

Thank you for the reply. Just curious about one thing that you said.

By that logic, shouldn’t the lasers in the OT also be unchanged? Technology has progressed 17 years there since the PT. Not trying to be rude, just asking.

I think you are confusing practical effects vs cg. The OT lasers were hand drawn. Eo VII were cg. They look fine.

I suppose you’re right. Again, wasn’t trying to be rude, I was just a bit confused. Really appreciate the work you’re doing here.

Looks great! I pointed the change in appearance to some friends of mine after my second viewing. They thought I was crazy. Glad to see I’m not the only one.

{Restoring the classic Falcon engine look}

I have grabbed some screens from google and was playing around how to give the falcon its classic engine look. though the original CG work in TFA is really good, it somewhat bothers me as it is clearly different from the original trilogy… As of right now I am playing with ideas to find some middle ground to bring back the classic GLOW of the Falcon Engine without completely blowing up what the studio did. Below is what I came up with so far.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Looks cool. Can you post the original for comparison?

It’s in the first post

no its not its on google

Then what was the point of posting the original photo of Finn with Anakin’s lightsaber if you’re not going to post the original photo of the Falcon?

Oh I didn’t see the falcon, here’s the (or close to) original: star-wars-the-force-awakens-millenium-falcon-wide
Oh man, I had not noticed these things until now. They will never not be caught by my eyes now so this project is a must for me. Great Work! Looks extremely promising. Has anybody so far planned on not doing a fan edit but strictly an extended edition of the force awakens with the “searching the falcon” and “speeder chase” scenes with corrections like xxtelecine is making. I feel that would be a brilliant project to put together. Like "Force Awakens xxtelecine EXTENDED EDITION"

I’ll probably be doing an extended edition if the special effects are complete and I’d definitely use xxtelecine’s changes if I do so.
