I mean, it’s barely been a month. Let’s be patient. I’m sure they’ll keep us posted whenever something of interest happens.

The project is moving forward, with the usual hazards for this kind of project (we are still waiting for a new 4K sensor that is stuck somewhere by a Japanese supplier).

In the meantime, I’ll post screenshots made from the first test scan (720p) ASAP so you can compare raw colors to official releases.

And as Omni and RU.08 say, it’s a long way, you’ll need to be patient… I’ll keep you informed of course!

Thanks man! I was hoping you would show something from the test scan! But why not the whole thing? 😃

Because the whole thing is a working file that does not present, in any way, the necessary quality for being used into a preservation or a fan-edit. So I do not want it to be released as is.

Take your time! It’s already awesome that this movie is getting scanned and - at long last - I’m going to see the true theatrical release with its correct colors. I don’t care what others say, but TPM is my favourite PT movie, and one of my favourite SW films right after the OT. I connect with so many great memories when the film was released in 1999. And it is the only PT movie that actually LOOKS like a movie (reason: recorded on film print 😃) Most of the effects aged very well. Especially in comparison with AOTC and ROTS.
