Welcome to the official thread for the discussion of Star Wars 1977 - 35mm Eastman Vs Technicolor Theatrical Version 1.0
This is the collective project that is not officially part of OT, or Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, Disney, etc. but in the spirit of preservation, has been put together with the wish to relive the memory of the original 1977 Star Wars Technicolor version.
We have made a lot of progress, but we have some more steps to take.
This is the place to keep on top on the when/where/how/who/and why of it.
If you want to discuss technical details, please refer to the Technical forum.
This is just to keep people informed on the status and updates.
