 (Edited)

I dunno why he doesn’t make threads for these both here and at FE.org, so I’ll do it for him. 😉 Here’s the thread at FE.org:

https://ifdb.fanedit.org/the-war-of-the-stars-a-new-hope-grindhoused/

It is still in the works, but close to being finished. He’s working on menus at the moment and doing a few tweaks. I have watched the workprint version and I can definitely say you guys are going to LOVE it! Tons of creative ideas in it and plenty of laughs, too.

I’ll update this thread whenever possible.

If it is anything like his "Jaws: The Sharksploitation Edit", it should be awesome!

Thanks Ripplin and Sluggo

I will probably work a little more on it, but I think a january release is possible.

I want to thanks Puggo to let me use is Puggo Grande (16mm preservation) as a basis for this edit.

"The War of the Stars" - sounds like a new celebrity reality show.. ;)

 

:)

yes, someone already told me that.

It's the exact translation of the french title "la guerre des étoiles".

Although in french the meaning his more like "the war from the stars" rather than stars actualy fighting (!)

No reference for the visual part of this edit?

I saw some in fanedit.org but nothing much. How extensive will be the effects?

"The War from the Stars" sounds even worse than "The War of the Stars" in spite of the latter's ambiguity.  Regardless, "The War of the Stars"does fit a grindhouse edit quite nicely, precisely because it could be a celebrity reality show: it shows the edit is not meant to be taken too seriously.

"War Among the Stars" might serve better as a serious translation of "la guerre des étoiles".  That style of title was used then: "Love Among the Ruins" (1975); Love Among Thieves (1987) etc. 

"Stellar Wars", on the other hand, sounds like an unfortunate series of occurrences during the football season.

I should put my [joke] list of proposed titles here, going with an exploitation flick theme. Hang on...

- "Sweet Luke's Baadasssss Adventures"
- "Destroy All Imperials!"
- "Black Vader Wheeze"
- "Imperial Holocaust"
- "I Spit on Your Death Star"
- "Faster, Luke! Exhaust Port! Exhaust Port!"
- "The Yavin 4 Death Star Massacre"

Why, did Jaxxon do something similar?

He's credited on Puggo Grande for providing the 16mm prints used. He might want a copy of this.

How about simply calling it "StarKiller"?  Luke's original last name, and also the title of the fake, badly dubbed Italian space epic from Joe Dante's "Explorers". ;)

 Ah tiens, je n' y avais pas pensé (l' habitude surement). C' est déjà un peu moins nul, ça me rassure.
