Uncorrected mistakes or unfixed issues of the 2019 (Maclunkey) Original Trilogy release?

As there are two previous threads for talking about the unfixed issues & uncorrected mistakes of the 2004 & 2011 OT releases:

You’d think they’d clean this up - the unfixed issues of the 2004 OT SE DVD release… - by Stakiller

What HASN’T changed on the 2011 OT SE Blu-ray release – the uncorrected mistakes… - by Gavin
 

I thought it may be worth having a thread for the 2019 Original Trilogy releases as well…
 

What errors or mistakes still remain in this latest release of the Original Trilogy that are in need of fixing? Or improving upon?

I know this has been discussed elsewhere, though I feel it is worth highlighting in this thread too (and for the 2011 and 2019 ‘what have they still not fixed?’ threads):
 

Never forget that the Death Star has been in clear site of Yavin IV from the beginning of the battle since 1997 and this is how the Special Edition should have ended. https://www.wired.com/story/put-original-star-wars-on-disney-plus/’ - https://twitter.com/StarWarsVisComp/status/1279501550575136771
 

A fairly important one, Gonk 😃

I wonder what the people at Lucasfilm think when being asked about that one…

Maybe they’ll fix it next time for the 2026 Special Edition releases?

They forgot to dub all stormtroopers with Temuera Morrison.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

They did not go back before they did the DNR pass used for the 3D reissue. Leaving to too smooth an image and very little fine detail. The audio mix on Star Wars is poor due to the master tapes. Some of the dialogue is of extremely poor quality. The mix varies from very good to not so good. Which wasn’t a problem for the earlier mixes before Matthew Wood remixed the film. No such problem on Empire or Jedi as far as i could tell.

I’m not exactly sure if it’s relevant to the thread, but something that’s been unfixed since 77: The laser blasts and lightsabers don’t mesh with the rest of the saga, as well as the noticeable jumpcuts and lack of startup for lightsabers, as well as the saber wobbling all about in one scene during Luke’s training aboard the Falcon during the Disturbance in the Force scene (It even appears to be misaligned with the handle).
