These are actually from a recreation of the Mos Eisley cantina for a television commercial. Unfortunately the commercial (for Volkswagen) seems to have been taken off the internet.

Ah, good catch 😃 I thought they looked a little ‘new’ looking.

Now that you have mentioned that VW advert I can’t get that similar adidas cantina advert out of my head!

Has there been any behind-the-scenes/outtake footage released for ANH in the same quality as the ones we’ve for TESB from December 15, 2020? Were they any released during 2018?

Some links for these would be nice.

"Pleasure’s fun. It’s great, but you can’t keep it going forever; just accept the fact that it’s here and it’s gone, and maybe then again, it will come back, and you’ll get to do it again. Joy lasts forever. Pleasure is purely self-centered. It’s all about your pleasure: it’s about you. It’s a selfish, self-centered emotion, that is created by a self-centered motive of greed. Joy is compassion. Joy is giving yourself to somebody else, or something else. And it’s a kind of thing that is, in its subtlety and lowness, much more powerful than pleasure. You get hung up on pleasure; you’re doomed. If you pursue joy; you will find everlasting happiness.” - George Lucas

is there a hd version from “the making of star wars” available?
the same from the empire making of´s…

TN1’s working on a restoration of a 16mm print of “The Making of Star Wars”, but as for right now there’s only an upscale version available. They’re also working on a 16mm print of “SPFX: The Empire Strikes Back.”

Do you know how to get a hold of the “The Making of Star Wars” Upscale I cannot seem to find it… THANKS

Word to the Spookies!

Go to the Star Wars category, then underneath “Original Trilogy” you’ll see the names of the films, a Magazine and comics category and at the very end “Bonus Features”. One of the top threads should be called “16mm Making of Star Wars” (by williarob). Alternatively you could probably just type in the name of the thread in the search box at the top right corner. The BD upscale is on page 6 BTW, though I just now found a 16mm Grindhouse version mentioned on page 5, though I don’t know if you can still get this version.
