welcome to the official thread for the discussion of the
star wars 1977 - 35mm theatrical version 1.0
this has been a project long in the making, and with the help and ideas of many diverse people from this board.
this is the collective project that is not officially part of OT, or lucasfilm, 20th century fox, etc. but in the spirit of preservation, has been put together with the wish to relive the memory of the original 77 star wars.
we have made a lot of progress, and in preparation for the release, we have some more steps to take, but will still be gearing up for the release.
this is the place to keep on top on the when/where/how/who/and why of it…
a lot of information is sprinkled through the original discussion thread about - 35mm my crazy proposal… we’ll take just the details and emphasize them here.
if you want to discuss technical stuff, post it there, or speculate there… this is just to keep people informed on the status and updates…
if you’re new to OT.com, this should be a lot easier to follow
than the previous one.
what is it? - a conversion/preservation of the 35mm version
of star wars from 1) spanish lpp print (6 reels) 2) english
print (5 reels) + 1 partial reel
who are we? - a group of individuals working on it,
color restoration and technical advisory, support
why? - because we love star wars, and appreciate
when will it be out? - we’re targetting this year,
but its done when its done
where can we find out more? - right here
video - our goal is to have a preserved version that will be released in a high definition 1080p anamorphic MKV that is full frame for people with projectors (25gigs), and bluray disc (25gigs), and a dual layer dvd (9gigs) as the final product. there might be several other downsamples in avi/mp4 later on…
audio - we will have a partially restored mono track,
the 35mm theatrical mix, and a reconstructed 70mm version, along with the original 35mm spanish soundtrack for it.
also, there will be a trailer for it, along with the original 35mm 1976 teaser. that’s it for the extras.
there will be more bonus behind the scenes content provided with links for download later on.
sample artwork, readme, what it will include:
raw data calculations:
equipment used and methodology:
preliminary trailer in 720p:
download 1080p WMV:
i’ll be taking pertinent posts from the other thread that
will apply to this… in the meantime, we look forward to
thanks from our entire team!
