No updates, it sounds like.

Well, fuck. Amusing I was the last one posting there asking about updates in 2022.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 - MKV (Released)
Time

popmac said:

Sorry if this has been brought up before, trying to find stuff in the 680 pages is difficult…

Lost a hard drive recently so I just redownloaded all the despecialized editions. Trying to save some space for now so I’m stripping out audio files I don’t care about, but the audio tracks don’t match up with the list here. For example, instead of track one being 5.1 and track two being stereo, both track one and two are showing as 5.1…

I don’t have a surround sound setup to see if this is just a weird mislabel/misreading from the software. Can anybody confirm what the audio tracks actually are?

Use MediaInfo.

The 2 Ewok Films - '<strong>Caravan Of Courage</strong>' (aka 'The Ewok Adventure'), &amp; '<strong>Battle For Endor</strong>'
Time

Used to watch these two quite often back in the day on VHS. Then had the flipper DVD, DVD10 I believe, with each movie on one side. Recently was able to come across the D+ versions and it’s nice 1080p even though the compression was “weird”. Would have been better if it were 4K, but what can you do with “LEGENDS” material in live-action? Honestly wish these two movies were on 4K+BD and all needs to be done is have a LEGENDS banner.

NJVC Custom Blu-ray Set of Harmy’s Despecialized Editions now available on Mega
Time

So glad I only care about the BD25 Documentary discs and not the Despecialized Editions. 4K77, 4K80, and 4K83 is vastly superior since, OH SHIT, 35mm film scan instead of only DISCS and barely anything else. I’m not going to waste a BD50 on this, no siree.
Thank fuck this has subtitles though.

35mm scan of the Theatrical Cut in 1080p or 4K would be nice. No need for upscaling.

AdmiralWasabi10191 said:

35mm scan project for both 1080p and 4K would be better than any upscaling effort.

AdmiralWasabi10191 said:

Good. I’d rather a 35mm scan compared to an obsolete upscale.

You posted the same comment (at least) three times now. I get it, you want 35mm. You know what post to go to for that.

This forum doesn’t have a search function when it should. So no, I don’t know which post to go to.

Best Fan Preservations of STAR WARS Laserdiscs to DVD?
Time

Hal 9000 said:

If I remember correctly, at the time the GOUT was released it was agreed that there was very little virtue in LaserDisc conversions because the GOUT was the best presentation of that master on video. There was Project XO which was canceled shortly after, which at the time was attempting to mine as much detail as possible from the LaserDiscs by using the best LaserDisc player in the world and doing fancy things to squeeze every drop out of it. With the GOUT, that put an end to all such things.

That said, I also recall the EditDroid version being regarded highly. As far as bonus material, there’d be some LaserDisc-specific content to compile, sure.

Yup. I have no idea if it’d be even worth it to make preservations of specifically the 1989/1990, 1993, and 1995 Laserdiscs to DVD at all because of the 2006 Limited Edition DVDs aka “GOUT”. Even though it could be different, possibly with better bitrate and compression? Not sure but I do have the LD bonus features of those three which someone else made onto DVDs.
No clue if I ought to wait for someone to scan 35mm prints, maybe someone already did, of the 1997 Special Editions. If someone already has those bonus features from the Special Edition Laserdiscs to DVD, then that’s already done and done.
I remember Project X0 but it still should have happened with the specific Laserdiscs to DVD. No heavy clean-up, just MPEG2 onto dual layered DVDs.

Can someone look into getting the 35mm prints of the naked gun trilogy?

Paramount will probably release a 4k eventually. Likely a dnr mess but u never know. They did a fine job with ferris bueller 4k .

Speaking of ng3 that’s the only one that hasn’t got a laserdisc treatment yet .

FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF isn’t on 4K UHD! MADNESS!
Digital and Streaming don’t fucking count either.

I beg to differ.

I would hope not.

NAKED GUN, NAKED GUN 2½, and NAKED GUN 33⅓ would be great to 35mm scans. In 1080p AND 4K.

Are you saying you’d be willing to update the naked gun trilogy if you could find way to gain access to the film prints etc.?

Fuck no.

Cassian Andor - Live-Action Series
Time

Absolutely fucking loved this STAR WARS show and can’t wait for Season 2. Finished the series one day after the last episode was originally on. Usually will wait to watch a few STAR WARS episodes in one go but this is one of them I was watching weekly. Glorious 4K HDR and it fits right in with the OT and of course ROGUE ONE. Glad this was 12 episodes instead of 6.

Questions about SW DVD/Blu-ray's
Time

Tantive3+1 said:

I’m looking into expanding my home video collection of SW by including the DVD/Blu-rays, but first, I have a few questions about them, so there’s no confusion when purchasing them.

  1. For the 2011 “The Complete Saga” Blu-ray Set, there’s one set that looks like this,

And another that looks like this

What’s the difference between the two release-wise?

To make it easier the only differences are the packaging. The discs are completely the same. First one released in 2011 is the Digisleeve, and the 2015, still 20th Century FOX, is a slipbox with the discs housed in a 9-Disc Viva Elite case. The 2015 release is a space saver while the 2011 release would take up more room on a shelf. Both have the booklet.
I have the 2015 release of the 2011 Blu-ray disc versions. Didn’t want the initial bulky packaging even though it has beautiful production artwork for the Digisleeves. That, and the 2015 release is less expensive compared to the 2011 release.
Digisleeve is where the disc is in a sleeve or nook instead of on a hub.

Tantive3+1 said:

Last question, does the 2020 UHD Blu-ray Box Set include these extras?

TFA
The Scavenger & the Stormtrooper: A Conversation with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega

TLJ
Meet the Porgs

TROS
A Final Alliance

IDGAF about the Sequel Trilogy BUT, here’s what DVDCompare.net lists for the “SKYWALKER SAGA”. I don’t know how to embed links in text on this style of forum so it’ll be the url.

http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=46003#4
http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film.php?fid=53267#2

Appears the last featurette/bonus/extra seems to be a Target Exclusive on DVD, and not entirely sure if there’s a separate release with it. I’ve absolutely no clue if the latter is in the so-called Saga set. I’ll ask a forum I’m on.

Best Fan Preservations of STAR WARS Laserdiscs to DVD?
Time

ifjg said:

I think Editdroid was considered the gold standard back in the day for video quality + preservation of bonus features. No idea how you could get it, though. Unless you specifically want LD video quality, probably best/easiest to just go with 4K77, since that includes the LD commentaries synced up.

I don’t mind LD quality specifically for the releases I posted. Of course I have 4K77 & 4K83 whichever version number No DNR. Figured it might be fun to have high quality Laserdisc to DVD preservations, and if anyone has made any menus.
I’m repeating myself from the first post.
Haven’t even kept up with the fan preservations for STAR WARS from defunct home media in a very long time.
