Hello everyone,

I’m looking for a rip of the 1997 Special Editions. I had them on VHS (portuguese version) but time took care of those tapes. Anyone knows where i can get a rip of those version?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the site bro. There’s currently a project dedicated to preserving the '97 Special Editions (http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/1997-Star-Wars-Special-Edition-35mm-Project/id/56979). I’m sure that someone out there that has the VHS or Laserdisc on whatever language your looking for will add it. I don’t know of any VHS preservations but you might get lucky looking for a Laserdisc preservation. Harmy has a preservation of the '97 version of A New Hope. It might have the language you’re looking for. You can find that here (https://goo.gl/1WGHBA). And here’s the thread (http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Harmys-STAR-WARS-Respecialized-Edition-97-AVCHD-and-MKV-now-out/id/16682/page/13#1091171)

May the force be with you.

Thanks, mate. The problem is that i don’t have a myspleen account. I wonder if there are other sources. VHS or LD versions of the 1997 special edition. I just want to show my son how I watched the trilogy on the cinema

I have no idea where you would find them, maybe on Usenet but I have no idea how to use that site so I’d be of no help there. Myspleen currently isn’t allowing invites and I hardly use the site to begin with. I’d try and look around the site. If you’re in the PAL region, I know there’s some Standard Definition television rips formatted for DVD5’s. I’ve heard they’re floating around but I’ve never come across them so I have no idea if the quality is that good or not. I’d suggest looking around other threads. Sorry I’m much help when it comes to the Special Editions.
