TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYz_zsJk4sM

PREMISE
Rewatch “A new hope” with a more modern look. Locations, characters and soundtrack are more consistent with the other movies of the saga.

SOURCES:

  1. Despecialized edition
  2. Telecine’s SFX for some blaster shots.
  3. 2019 version

OVERALL CHANGES:

  1. Complete color correction. I want it to be more in line with other movies (Rogue One’s Death Star, Mandalorian’s Tatooine, TFA’s Falcon) and to keep a consistent look in the whole saga as much as I can.
  2. New music tracks from other movies and a couple from the Harry Potter movies.
  3. Enhanced engines, lightsabers, etc.

COMPLETE CHANGELIST:

  • New crawl. The Battle of Scarif, Coruscant, Palpatine and the Senate are mentioned.
  • New atmosphere for Tatooine, inspired by the Mandalorian.
  • Enhanced ships’ lasers.
  • Added twin suns in a couple shots.
  • The explosion on the Tantive is removed.
  • Added Prequels music during the stormtroopers assault.
  • Added Imperial March to Vader’s appearance.
  • Recolored Tantive IV
  • Replaced music as the Star Destroyer leaves Tatooine
  • Shortened and recolored 3PO/R2 scene in the desert.
  • Added Prequels music as R2 is captured by Jawas, to increase tension.
  • Removed 3PO being approached by the Sandcrawler (to enhance pacing and make the audience wonder what happened to him).
  • Enhanced Leia’s hologram
  • Removed CG rock in front of R2
  • Removed Ben saying that he doesn’t remember owning a droid.
  • Restructured Ben’s hut scene (= Adywan’s)
  • Enhanced lightsaber
  • Enhanced Star Destroyer’s engine
  • Recolored Death Star council room
  • Added Harry Potter and Prequels music track
  • Shortened Mos Eisley’s reveal
  • Removed Ronto
  • Added Imperial propaganda message inside Cantina
  • Recolored Cantina
  • Han shoots first. Greedo doesn’t shoot at all
  • Recolored Imperial officers’ uniform with green tones, more in line with Rogue One and the Mandalorian
  • Removed Jabba scene
  • Recolored Falcon’s interior to be more similar to TFA. Recolored lights inside cockpit.
  • Cut Han saying that he knows some maneuvers
  • Added atmosphere to Alderaan
  • Enhanced Alderaan’s explosion
  • Added Prequels music
  • New music tracks during first Luke “training” inside the Falcon
  • Enhanced lightsaber
  • Enhanced chess hologram
  • Replaced Imperial officer telling Tarkin about the rebel base with a hologram
  • Added Falcon in hyperspace establighing shot
  • Added force field to Death Star hangar
  • Added some new music tracks
  • Recolored Death Star areas. Some corridors are blue (similar to Rebels scenes inside Star Destroyers), others are darker and black (similar to some Clone Wars and videogames style).
  • Cut trash compactor one-eyed monster
  • Restructured chasing sequence in order to remove stormtroopers running away from Han, and Han being overrun. I never liked that scene.
  • Enhanced lightsabers during duel and added music tracks.
  • Moved Luke mourning Ben to after the Tie fighters sequence.
  • Added shot of the Falcon going to hyperspace, and Death Star establishing shot to introduce Tarkin/Vader
  • Added sun to Yavin to many space shots
  • New atmosphere for Yavin
  • Recolored Yavin’s nature and temple
  • Recolored X-Wing’s engines
  • Added music tracks during the battle
  • Enhanced displays and lasers
  • Recolored entire battle (less flat, Death Star is more grey, fighters interiors slightly more blue)

  • Added battle hologram to all Leia scenes

Death Star hologram and Dantooine search.

This is the clip which I already posted in the Radical Ideas thread.
It still needs work on the hologram, and the Dantooine search will be shortened, but that’s it.

I like the Dantooine addition, but maybe exclude the close-up of the trooper helmet and replace it with an exterior shot
of a rebel base, then show the troops searching. The planets and the troops searching actually mesh really well with the original. Good work! I’m looking forward to seeing more

Author

Thank you! Yeah, the close-up has already been removed. I just need to find a shot for the base exterior…

OPENING CLIP.

You can see the new crawl (any suggestions welcomed) and the color correction (Tatooine, its atmosphere, the engines).

I loved it, the color looks great and the crawl content, with references to R1, is too. Good luck with the project!

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!

Do you plan on adding the Obi-Wan vs. Vader fan remaster (SC 38 Reimagined) to your edit?

The unfortunate reality of the Star Wars prequel and Disney trilogies is that they will always be around. Forever. They will never go away. It can never be undone.

I also prefer to be referred to as “TNT”, not “Freezing”.

At the moment… nope. 😄
I’m sorry, I quite enjoyed it, but it looks way too different. Maybe I will add one or two shots of Vader, but nothing from the actual duel.
I’m considering to have a whole different cut for the duel. If I manage to make it work, I’d like to have something similar to the “Return” cinematic trailer from The Old Republic.

Thank you for criticism.
Right now I quite like it, it looks less flat IMHO, so at least for now I’ll keep it.

What is it that you don’t like?

I still can’t consider it as bad… I find it more in line with the PT and ST.
Anyway, you guys are surely more expert than I am.

What do you think about this?

I have to agree that the first grade of Threepio was excessive. I do think that the second one was a step in the right good.
