Have there ever been any attempts to replace the ANH Death Star explosion, to make it a little less of a “firecracker goes pop” affair and make it a bit larger and weightier?

And while we’re on it, something to ruin it down to looking more like the DS2 shell, for OT edits that want to go the ‘single death star’ route?

How feasible would it be to add Boba Fett to Endor? Perhaps with some fan film footage? Star Wars fan films love their forest settings.

Also how do you spoiler tag?

Add him to Endor in ROTJ, you mean?

Yeah

Book of Boba Fett spoilers:

I was thinking of putting the scene of Boba’s hand reaching out of the sand from the first episode of BOBF after the sail barge scene and have him show up again on Endor.

Haven’t really kicked around the idea more than that since I’m not sure what footage could be reused for the Endor scenes for him.

The difficulty would be in finding something for him to do there that integrates with the existing Endor footage - his part in the story is done when he falls into the Sarlacc because that’s the resolution of the “Han in carbonite” narrative. He’d have to do something on Endor to give his reappearance a reason, I think.

Otherwise, (BoBF spoiler)

if you just want to have his hand emerge from the pit, I feel like it would be fine to leave it there, precisely because he doesn’t necessarily need to show up again in ROTJ.

Luckily the scene doesn’t have to be colorized, since we got that clip from the 40h anniversary BTS reel on the Star Wars YouTube channel.

In that clip, George’s voiceover continues into that scene, but the clip itself seems to begin on the tail end of Han’s line, "You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life."

Here is how the scene goes:

CLOSE-UP OF LEIA

LEIA: Afraid?

HAN: You’re trembling.

TWO SHOT OF HAN AND LEIA

LEIA: I’m not trembling.

HAN: You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.

LEIA: I happen to like nice men.

HAN: I am a nice man.

LEIA: No you’re not. You’re-

Han kisses Leia. Cut to wide as 3PO interrupts them.

This is how the scene could go, with that alternate take.

CLOSE-UP OF LEIA

LEIA: Afraid?

HAN: There aren’t enough-

ALTERNATE HAN AND LEIA TWO SHOT

HAN: -scoundrels in you’re life.

LEIA: I happen to like nice men.

HAN: I am a nice man.

LEIA: You are not nice. You are-

Han kisses Leia. Han pulls back, unsure of Leia’s reaction.

LEIA: Okay, hotshot.

Leia kisses Han back. Cut to wide as 3PO interrupts them.

I do like the alternate take, because it does show some vulnerability to Han. When he pulls back, he almost looks guilty, worried that he might’ve been too forward. He gulps, waiting for Leia’s reaction. Leia taking charge of the situation also fits Leia’s character better, I think. Sort of like how Leia took charge of her own rescue in ANH. And it also fits well with the continuity, since in the wide shot where 3PO interrupts them, Leia’s arm is around Han’s neck. She doesn’t put her arm around him in the theatrical close-up two shot, but she does in the alternate take.

At the very least, it would be cool to have this alternate take of this scene, even if you lose a line or two. I guess it then becomes a question of if you can get the color grade to match, and get the music/audio to fit in seamlessly.

Upscaling and restoration have come a long way in the short time since this was posted - heck, I’ve seen a Spider-Man meme group upscale and restore a bootlegged recording of No Way Home solely for the purposes of making higher quality memes. Has anyone taken a crack at upscaling and restoring this lately?

And here’s an attempt to integrate another Vader deleted scene with Luke going to Dagobah first.
So the first time we see him he’s basically the same character as on ESB.

Again, it needs some more audio work, etc, etc.

I think it’s a bit rushed for an introduction, but makes more sense character wise. Really depends on personal preference (spectacle vs substance).

Aside from the weird static effect on the shot of Vader walking down the hall, it actually looks really good.

I’m not really that much of a movie purist.

Coming back to this, I thought someone had repurposed Kijimi’s destruction from TROS as Alderaan - but when I looked at the footage, the laser in TROS is red. Did someone colour-correct it?
