A slow work in progress of an extended cut of ESB. There’s a lot of stuff out there from a lot of sources, so I’m not 100% on exactly what I will and won’t use. I’ve finished a pass most of the Hoth section of the film so far.
Extended Medical Bay
Rough Wampa Attack (almost no sound mix)
Obviously none of these clips are 100% finished yet, and the sound design (more than anything) needs a lot of work as most deleted clips are silent or have an extremely minimilist sound mix using only on-set audio. If anyone wan’t to help out with sound design, I’d be more than happy to work with you.
ADDITIONS (so far)
- added additional shot of Probe Droid rising up after landing
- added exteneded scene of the Wampa attacking Luke
- added extended scene with Han telling Chewie he’ll be right back
- added extended Echo Base argument with Han/Leia
- added a Wampa attacking Echo Base
- added extended Medical Bay scene
- added C-3PO ripping the sign off the Wampa trap door
- added a Snowtrooper being pulled into the Wampa trap room
With all of those scenes back, the film runs at 2:09:22 vs the theatrical 2:04:54. Obviously there is going to be more additions and trims and all that to get the deleted scenes and moments to all work as best I can.
I plan on making one version with the finished colour scene, and another with the unfinished B/W ones, since there is a lot of interesting stuff in these exclusively monochromatic scenes.
