If you need an American to dub over the Brits to keep with tradition, I’m always available!

And if anybody needs an English actor dubbed over with a Scottish guy doing an American accent that turns back to a Scottish one for the next film, I’m always available!

Wow, it actually looks pretty good.

I don’t see much difference, myself.

Neither Leia nor Tarkin bothered me in RO though,

Tarkin was quite well done, but Leia was pretty bad.

The problem with Tarkin for me was that it was just unnecessary. Guy Henry looks enough like Peter Cushing that I think they could have got away with a hair-piece, prosthetics, and some CGI to shrink him slightly and age up that lower jaw.

Oh…

The guy from RotS? He dosn’t look too bad in a still but he looked terrible in motion, but they also picked a guy who didn’t really look a lot like Cushing.

Well, in that case it makes sense because the Empire was supposed to be evocative of the Nazis. Seeing black ladies as imperial officers wouldn’t work if you’re trying to make the bad guys Nazis.

😉

What a stunningly awful picture. Did the artist not known how to use Google or watch the films? No rank badges and such an oversized buckle? The uniform dosn’t even fit her. Not even extras were dressed that badly in the OT.

The prequels will also be erased from the saga now that i am no longer doing them. I just can’t bring myself to ever watch them again. The prequel references added to ANH:R will be gone for the HD version (The battle droid added into the sandcrawler scene was only added as in in-joke anyway. Left in a junk pile 😉 ). I no longer have to worry about fixing anything in the OT that contradicts those films. And, even if by some miracle i do decide to do them, i’ll fix the problems in those instead. So no biggie. But, for me, I’d like to start my viewing with Rogue One, followed by the OT, then the ST , as those films are far superior to the PT. Those are the only parts i would like to fit together now. Although you’d probably still be able to watch the prequels with Revisited because nothing i’m doing really contradicts those anyway ( plus i may still be adding the “you’re Mother once thought as you do” line instead of the original "Obi-Wan). That’s just my personal opinion of the PT and i appreciate that there are fans out there that like them, so i wouldn’t really want to make Revisited so you couldn’t watch the PT too if you wanted to.

I doubt anybody will complain about the Battledroid scrap if you keep it in. Even if you ignore the PT it’s now just a extra bit of detail in the background brightening the place up a bit. Removing any trace of Battle of the Heroes from the DS duel is good, I love that music too much and it is not the right track for two bitter old men finding each other again.

However some references are too good to change, the updated DS plans animations and the holo-displays on Yavin for example. Maybe remove the blue Naboo-like detailing around the plans animation but the idea of the old style (from Rogue One and the origional ANH) being a ‘DVD cover’ type thing with your animation underneath would be the absalute best way to do it. And the holograms make the Battle of Yavin feel far more active or frantic than the little moving red pie chart.

I also think Vader should still have his eyebrows gone. He’s more machine now than man, he should look it. To the people saying it humanises him? Well we don’t really need that because there’s two other things that do that, the lack of yellow eyes and his appearance as a ghost later (which I also think should be Shaws head on Haydons costume and not a copy ‘n’ paste of Obi Wans costume), both of which I think are far more humanising than giving a man in a face-hugging airtight mask extra places for sweat to accumulate.

Also, unrelated to PT stuff, I hate all the dancing and singing in Jabbas Palace the original and the SE versions. I have no problem with an atmospheric band then Oolas (sp?) dance number leading to dinner time but the full one band and both choices of music? Nah. Though, this one isn’t so much a suggestion as it is a statement, so… Yeah.

I was a big fan of the work done on ANH:R and ESB:R (except for reverting Bobbas voice, and I will fight to the death over that 😄)

One could make the argument that Boba wanted to form his own persona, and not live in the shadow of the clones that were in his “father”'s image, so he adopted a different voice.

That would work if not for the fact he uses his own voice in TCW.

Reverting Boba’s voice to the new version wouldn’t be that hard to do if you want to “personalize” your own ESB:R (both interpretations are good but the original one is far more sinister).
Since Ady is no longer willing to do PT:R I guess we won’t see Temuera Morrison’s face when Boba is seducing the cute dancers.

A) Accents being genetically determined is silly.

But yeah better Fett voice is here to stay so if you want to change it back do your own versions.

It’s not genetically determined though, he uses Logans voice in AoTC and TCW and sounds similar to Morrison (because it was him) when he ages in the same way Rex sounds different when younger (Baker isn’t very good to start with, affecting an Australian accent in TCW) but sounds far more like Morrison by Rebels. None of those are American accents.

I’m just a massive fan of how Morrison sounds (I played Republic Commando) but I don’t feel like making a custom version of TESB:R for the simple reason the recording of the lines isn’t very good in the SE.

I guess I was unclear originally, I meant ‘I prefer Bobba having a Kiwi accent over a generic cowboy one’ rather than ‘I prefer the takes of the dialogue used in the SEs over the original’.

Australian?! Oh, phew - then you bring up Kiwi accent on Logan lol. If you want an ex-pat Kiwi speaking an Australian accent (and I don’t mean Russell Crowe), look no further than Manu Bennett.

No, both Morrison and Logan use their native New Zealand accents but Baker uses what he thinks is a New Zealand accent that sounds Australian through much of TCW. It only starts to sound more Kiwi into Rebels.

It doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t spend any time with Jango anyway. He still has a Kiwi accent approximately 3-4 years later, well after his dad is dead and living alongside reptilian accented Bossk, American accented Aurra, and English accented Dengar. Cut Lawquane kept his Australian(ish) accent after years with his French accented family. Gregor kept his accent after years abandoned on a desert. Bobba’s not trying to hide who he is or anything, if AotC and TCW forms part of the backstory to ESB then Bobba would be very unlikely to have developed an American accent.

Does this forum store drafts or something because that’s my old post from pages ago 😕

Anyway, all I was going to point out then was the shield from the dish is quite clearly the DS’ shield not the moons shield and that there’s no reason the moon shouldn’t have either a Skarif style gate or a slight blue tinge just to show on is there.

I was a big fan of the work done on ANH:R and ESB:R (except for reverting Bobbas voice, and I will fight to the death over that 😄) and am looking forward to the ANH:R:R a lot (though I’d rather the SDs and DS plans are left as they are and any hypothetical RO:R fan edit changes them to match ANH:R).

To me RotJ is the film that needs an edit the most (well excluding TPM and AotC), more so than either TFA or RotS even, but I think the things it needs the most are probably out of Adywans remit of revisited edits (for reference it’s the movement of Yodas death and Lukes lightsabre construction on Degoba and his telepathic convo with Vader as well as a restored subplot of the Moff who’s name I can’t spell, and the removal of Bobba from the film).

However I’d like to throw out a few ideas, mostly already suggested…

Colour correction and lightsabre/blaster fixing (goes without saying really)
New matts throughout
Removal of both musical numbers from Jabbas Palace (or make the origional backing music)
Keep the Sarlaacs beak and enhance it more
Change the Tydirium to the Zeta-class (the exact class from RO)
Change the Emperors ship to a Delta-class to distinguish it from Needa and Vaders ships
Maybe change the AT-AT on Endor (that’s not present in combat) into the RO cargo version
More views of the DSII
The large sized interdictor from Rebels in the background (or maybe two)
Restore the deleted scene of the Rebel general with the silly shirt in command of one of the Mon Cal ships that gets vapourised
Shield glow over the moon
Correct all Imperial ranks
A wider verity of ships (i.e. more ships larger than the CR-90s) in the space battle for both sides
Something I’ve seen mocked up by AggeIw (https://aggeiw.deviantart.com/art/Give-me-a-Hand-216238791)
Add a window to the DSII bridge
Keep Vaders removed eyebrows and let a Rebels faneditor remove them there.
B-Wings, U-Wings (in the hangers not in combat), TIE Defenders
By the time the edit is progressing Rebels will have aired its final series meaning we’ll know for certain if it is indeed Rex on Endor. If it is either a tannoy announcement for him or some short bits of dialogue lifted from Rebels would be nice
As many ships and pilots as you can cram into the space battle, it’s the final battle of the series it needs to exceed Scarif and Coruscant despite the smaller Rebel fleet
Anything you can do to the ground battle to make it better is appreciated in any way providing it downplays the Ewoks as much as possible and possibly ups the Imperial competence down there. However the space battle and Lukes battle are the main focus not the ground one
Keep the ending celebrations but tweak them so it’s a bit less immediate
Retcon Wedges Scottish accent into ANH:R:R and into the Blue-Ray of ESB:R
The views outside of the Emperors window should show the battle and not a static image of 4 SDs with green flashes on them
Sort out the Rancor so it’s more natural in its movements
Replace Haydon with Matt Lanter

Like I say, most have already been suggested but I thought I’d throw in mine as well.
