I made a 1080p upscale in Topaz from the PAL video source. It’s nothing fancy, and there are definitely some upscaling artifacts, but it’s available by PM if anyone wants to check it out.

I would like to thank Octorox for this upscale, it looks great. Nice to have this option until Adywan’s new version is ready.

Same here. Just checked out a few scenes and it looks absolutely fantastic.

I agree with you 100%, Bridger12. I think it would be a huge loss if he cut the extended Death Star battle. It was one of the main highlights of the edit. I know he doesn’t really care what anyone else suggests, but it’s about 95% to 5% in favor of keeping it from all the comments I’ve read.

Yeah, I also wish the edit was a bit more radical. I was actually surprised watching it, wondering why almost nothing was changed during the opening scenes of the movie. The edits that are there are absolutely stunning, I just wish a bit more was cut out (mainly Finn’s over-the-top comedy, that’s always bugged me).

I’m glad he didn’t go as radical as some edits and I thought the Finn stuff he cut out was the right amount. It’s OK to leave a little bit of humor in and he got rid of the really cringey lines IMHO.

Just got done watching this and it’s hands down my favorite edit of TFA yet. Only minor changes I would personally make are:

  • When Han says “move, ball” to BB8 it doesn’t actually sound like his voice so maybe that could be addressed

  • I always liked the part where Han threw the guy into the Rathtar’s mouth after he punched him so would love to see that one bit restored

  • Agree with EddieDean that the “I’ll tighten your restraints” line should be put back in

  • The color correction throughout the entire film looked great except for Jakku which looked a little too blown out in terms of the white. I like the fact that you tried to differentiate the color of that planet so it didn’t look exactly like Tatooine, but it almost looked as white as the salt planet it TLJ so maybe there’s a happy medium somewhere.

For me this ranks right up at the very top of SW fanedits with Adywan’s and Hal9000’s releases. Brilliant job and I can’t wait to see the next version if any of the suggested changes are implemented.

Yes it will. If you want to keep the old print, download it. If it doesn’t let you do that, copy it to your own Google Drive, then make a copy of that copy, then download the copy’s copy (this bypasses download limits).

Thanks. Yeah, I downloaded it before I watched it so I’m anxious to watch the new one with all the changes. Keep up the great work, Hal.

One Word: GARBAGE!
These De-Specialized versions are the same as the Sequel Trilogy: An Insult to George Lucas, A Disgrace to the franchise, Fan-fiction, Pointless and Unnecessary!
I managed to get the theatrical cuts in very low resolutions (.avi) and I forgot how horrible it was back then.
Makes me appreciate even more the Special Editions and The Prequel Trilogy.

Why are you here?
