Honestly, it looks more like they’re celebrating than panicking and being scared. Maybe you can zoom in to make it look more like there’s crowds gathering to see what’s going on, with some panicked shouting and all that added in? Also, maybe you can add a color-corrected-to-green shot of a laser beam shot by Starkiller Base in the Alderaan edit, as well as some new shots in this standalone edit?

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

Well, don’t take me wrong, but I disagree.
You think it looks like they’re celebrating because you know they are celebrating. The shot has a high brightness, and it’s increasing… plus, it’s very short. The only aspect that could make you think they are celebrating is the Gungan waving a flag, but considering the moment it could simply be a guy trying to get the attention of the scared crowd. Also, as a viewer, you see the natural destruction FIRST, so that you’re already in the right mood. Then you see a city that you know from previous movies… I mean, you know that’s being destroyed.
This is only my personal opinion, of course. Not an expert, here…
I could add some shouts,that’s for sure.

Do you also plan on adding some of the additional shots I suggested (e.g. the Starkiller Base laser and some new shots in the other edit I linked to)?

Adywan’s Star Wars Revisited edits are to Blade Runner: The Final Cut as the original theatrical releases of the original trilogy are to the original version of Blade Runner.

I could add the laser just before it hits the planet. But I think nothing else.
The shot of Bail looks awful (I’m sure you know that), and the short planet view being hit looks too different in color and style, IMHO.

The Naboo city shot feels disconnected. Why are people assembled ? We don’t see the explosion hitting the city.

But keep it up I like where you are going!

Again, don’t take me wrong, I’m simply exposing my point of view.
I don’t think it really matters why they are. Who knows? The Death Star has been in orbit for minutes. Maybe they all understood what was going to happen (Bail went back to Alderaan to inform them about the DS), and they are panicking.
About the explosion, I tried to add something like an explosion in the background, but the camera is moving in the Naboo shot, so it always looked like sh*t. At the end I chose to create that white-to-green effect…
Anyway, THANK YOU both for the suggestions, I’ll surely go back to that.

Good! So show the Death Star in orbit (Rogue One footage), as an establishing shot before we go to Tarkin and the Princess perhaps. That would give the people time to assemble 😉

I thought about that… There’s already the shot of the Death Star approaching Alderaan in the original. I could also cut Admiral Motti saying that they’ve ENTERED the Alderaan system, so that we don’t know how long they’ve been there.

Millennium Falcon color correction.

I’m trying to work on this.
The original looks sooo flat, and I kind of liked the colors from The Force Awakens (blue-ish “room” and yellow-ish corridors).
So here’s a test. Please, tell me what you think. I’m also working on a masking over Kenobi when he walks in front of the corridor.

Waaaay overboard on the blue there, IMO. Reign that back some and I think you might have something there.

New one.
There is still a slight blue tonality, but way less visible.


I’ll play with it a little more. Maybe increase it just a bit…

Short clip.

There’s a new hyperspace tunnel and a new Falcon.
The Falcon’s cockpit has blue lights.
And there’s a new asteroid field.

The Falcon in hyperspace still needs a bit of work, even if I don’t know if it will look perfect. Same for the asteroids… I’ll mask the Falcon better, but I hope it’ll be acceptable.

Appreciate it, I think it’s a really good idea to match the falcon with TFA, I eyeballed as I went through a few layers (no masking) mostly using selective color and shifting around the magentas blues and reds, it’s also a bit darker, sorry to say I was working on the fly so I can’t get more specific, I got there by keeping my focus on top of R2, Han and the floor/chess table stand.

The biggest issue is applying any changes non-destructively, with the lower res jpegs it’s difficult changing anything without picking up artifacts, did my best to avoid.

JEDIT: I couldn’t help myself and made it a little brighter (maybe too bright) and closer to TFA levels, it’s also aumsing to me how just a slight color change really makes ANH look so much more like a Disney movie.

No. It will be released in 720p. I have a pretty old computer… I can’t even watch movies in 4k smoothly, lol.

I enjoy how you’ve made the Death Star grey, especially from the space views. I’d recommend putting a little more yellow into the skin tones to fix the Bluray sunburn, though, especially for Tarkin, whose ears and face are looking a tad raw.
