If you want it in surround sound, the 2011 Blu-ray set has the 1997 French 5.1 mix superimposed with the 2004 DVD mix. However, the French laserdiscs can only handle stereo.

The 2011 cuts are not exactly the same as the 1997 cuts, lengthwise

  • For the '11 cut of ESB, the dialogue between Vader and the Emperor has been extended from the '97 cut, which used the '80 dialogue.
  • For the '11 cut of ROTJ, the first 2 hours, 5 minutes, and 55 seconds are sync’d with the '97 cut until it reaches the Victory Celebration. From there, an extra 5.626 seconds is added.
  • The least change is ANH. The '97 cut runs 792ms longer than the '11 cut–an extra 459ms in the black frames between the fade-out of Luke and the droids entering the garage on Tatooine and the fade-in of 3PO being lowered into the oil bath, and an extra 334ms in the Han/Greedo shootout (if you can call it that).
    EDIT: The 2004 cut of ANH shares the same frame-count length as the 1997 cut. However, the 2004 cuts of ESB and ROTJ do not for the said reasons.

So, work would have to be done to sync the 2011 cut with the 1997 cuts.

Ok thank you very much it’s true I noticed with my own laserdisc that the cut is not at all pariel and very complicated to synchronize talking about the stereo sound which is not terrible
finally one of ours member told me that I would have chances to find French Dub of 1997 on the site
I will continue my search
