The Brave Little Toaster (1987) 4K 35mm Film Scan! (WIP)
Time

This is what Jerry Rees told me:

“My art director Brian McEntee and I worked out a progressive increase in the red tint - which builds as the action gets more intense, then fades once Toaster has successfully stopped the crusher. But the film lab kept trying to take the red out. Very frustrating. Brian had to keep tabs on them for every shot - letting them know that his carefully chosen series of filters had been mounted on the camera shot-by-shot, so the negative would permanently hold our intentions. But the lab was so used to “normalizing” live action footage, rather than accepting the purposeful stylizations of animation footage that they never truly got out of the way. The film print we showed at Sundance looked very close to what I had hoped for. The Disney home video release (which introduced a side-to-side wobble throughout the opening that was NOT in our original footage) at least kept my basic intention for the red - although they didn’t go through a true color balance check with Brian and me.”

Don’t forget to keep the red tint during the climax where Rob is stuck on the conveyor belt. Director Jerry Rees told me in a Facebook message that it’s supposed to be there, but the PAL DVD took it out entirely, for reasons that fail me.

Yep I will keep note of that. On the print this part is tinted red

What about the rest of the scene? I think it should pretty much match the North American DVD.

I think that Make Mine Music needs an uncensored release the most.

I was going to make an uncensored Make Mine Music myself. For most of the film, I have the DVD. For censored parts in “all the cats joins in” there’s laserdisc rip (at this segment it doesn’t have any subtitles). But, one thing is missing: I can’t get “the martins and the coys” in quality as good as the DVD. If someone can get me that, then the project can go on!

I have a 1080p uncut and uncensored version of Make Mine Music. I used an Australian HD TV rip that went viral some time ago, that includes “The Martins and the Coys,” and the side breast from “All the Cats Join in.” I spliced them in with the official Blu-Ray. Would you like it? How can I send it to you?

Idea & Info: The Brave Little Toaster DVD - Ideas on how to restore?
Time

There’s a major problem with Octorox’s video that I feel should definitely be fixed. I was told by the director Jerry Rees in a Facebook message conversation that the heavy red tint during the climax where Rob is stuck on the conveyer belt is supposed to be there. The restoration team for the PAL DVD removed it by accident. He told me this:

“My art director Brian McEntee and I worked out a progressive increase in the red tint - which builds as the action gets more intense, then fades once Toaster has successfully stopped the crusher. But the film lab kept trying to take the red out. Very frustrating. Brian had to keep tabs on them for every shot - letting them know that his carefully chosen series of filters had been mounted on the camera shot-by-shot, so the negative would permanently hold our intentions. But the lab was so used to “normalizing” live action footage, rather than accepting the purposeful stylizations of animation footage that they never truly got out of the way.

Adywan, please reconsider your decision to remove the extended Death Star battle sequence. It was one of the best parts! Almost everyone in the comment section of your April 3rd Facebook post agrees. We all think it should be kept in.

Crossvader said:

Bridgr12 I’m sure adywan tried it out and found it does not work in the HD version or maybe he just was not happy with it to start with so I think let’s just let adywan do he’s thing and make the version he feels most happy with, after all this is he’s edit.

Adywan is a perfectionist and I’m more than excited to see the version he is most satisfied with. colour corrected updated effects lightsabers lasers and corrected mistakes are more than enough to make this edit amazing.
he’s empire strikes back is great and I’m sure this will be just as great.

darkzip is doing an upscale of ANH:R SD so why not create your own version that has the extended DS attack when the HD verrsion is released?

The thing is, I know that Blu-Rays will be made of the Revisited Trilogy, likely with menus, and I wouldn’t know how to create a new Blu-Ray using those menus, since I’d be replacing the movie. I also don’t know if the audio will be lossless, and I don’t know how to export edited videos with lossless audio.

There was one very minor change made to the 1080p version I noticed that I actually like, and that is the removal of the “A News Corporation Company” byline in the 20th Century Fox logo. Personally, it always felt off to me, because by then, in 2017, it was no longer in the official logo, and having it with the modern Lucasfilm logo made it even more out of place. I hope this new 1080p logo sans the byline will be kept for ANH:R HD and ROTJ:R. It really is an absolute BEAUTY.

Star Wars (1977), Empire Strikes Back (1980), and Return of the Jedi (1983) were all released/distributed by 20th Century Fox and LucasFilm Ltd. The only Star Wars films that don’t have the 20th Century Fox logo are the sequel trilogy. At-least for these films, in my point of view, the TCF logo is not out of place.

I’m sorry, I should have been more specific. The old 720p version of Empire Revisited has “A News Corporation Company” under the 20th Century Fox logo, but in the current 1080p version, it’s not there.

I’m wondering if there is a version of the Emperor scene with Adywan’s revisited image of the hologram and 2011 blu-ray dialogue?

I don’t think so.

You know, I don’t think it’s even necessary to have that extended bit of dialogue anymore, and I don’t know why it was kept in versions that came out after Revenge of the Sith. I am not sure what the intentions were to have Vader ask “How is that possible?”. In a 2015 canon comic that takes place between Episodes IV and V, Vader asks Boba to investigate more about the pilot who destroyed the Death Star. Boba comes back with the information that his name is “Skywalker.” Vader naturally got VERY angry after hearing it, because Palpatine lied to him about him killing Padmé in his anger on Mustafar, while she was still pregnant, and he had been going on for 20 years with that thought in mind.

Ideas for my own Prequel Trilogy edits
Time

I’ve been thinking about creating my own fan edits of the PT. Unlike other editors, I mostly want to keep the creative and narrative integrity, and I don’t want to do such things like dubbing the aliens with new a language and adding subtitles, like others have. The problem is that I don’t know where to start, what programs to use, and if it’s even possible to do absolutely everything on this list. Could someone please help me?

Across the Trilogy:

Use Adywan’s 20th Century Fox logo from The Empire Strikes Back: Revisited.
Change the starfields and planet exteriors to more high resolution versions.
Have them be in 4K HDR.
Keep the lossless Dolby Atmos mixes.
Re-rotoscope the lightsabers and have them omit and reflect light onto surfaces.
Change the lip movements of the Neimoidians to better match the words.
Redo the opening crawls with the ST fonts.
Redo the end credits so that the starfields are there throughout the entire thing.

The Phantom Menace:

Add a field of grain to the whole movie.
Remove some, but not all, of Jar Jar’s antics.
Remove the power cord lighting up the bulbs on Queen Amidala’s dress.
Fix the shots where Obi-Wan’s Padawan braid is on his left ear instead of his right.
Remove or reposition the inconsistent shadows in some shots.
Maybe cut some parts of the pod race so it doesn’t get too boring.
Use the trailer version of Padmé saying “Get to your ships!”
Lower Yoda’s voice a little.
Change the Mace Windu double near the end to actually be Samuel L. Jackson.

Attack of the Clones:

Change the the color of the fabric that Padmé is packing, as it changes from red to blue between shots.
I may or not add the scene with Anakin meeting Padmé’s family. The problem is that it’s too different in picture quality compared to the rest of the movie, and I don’t think there’s any way to make it work with the lossless Dolby Atmos track.

Revenge of the Sith:

Fix the continuity error of Padmé’s nightgown pearls being tangled in one shot.
Fix the shot where Palpatine has Anakin’s lightsaber handle, a holdover from a deleted scene.
When Anakin lands on Mustafar, add the black glove back to his right hand, as he puts his hood on.
Maybe replace Vader’s “Nooooo!” with the Russian version.

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - ** PRODUCTION HAS NOW RESTARTED **
Time

One thing that is very frustrating about some of George’s changes to the movies is how they are made in isolation, without concern for continuity between shots. For example, I get why he wanted Jabba’s palace door to look bigger, so that it’s more grand-looking, but he didn’t account for the interior shots where R2 and 3PO enter the palace. For the uninitiated, it would look like either the door suddenly got smaller, or the characters suddenly got bigger. Thankfully, Adywan is keeping the original shot.

Asking for a friend who is keen about Star Wars details.
"For ROTJ:R, could you please change the throne room layout to how it looks in TROS?
Most importantly, the wall with the door that leads to the wayfinder


Otherwise, it’s good to see this project is still going strong!
Thanks very much!

Based on those pics, I don’t think changing the throne room layout to how it appears in TROS is really necessary. It’s really the fault of the filmmakers for not having it match to how it was depicted in ROTJ.

They DID match it. I saw the documentary. I looked closer at one of the photos, and the secret door is meant to be underneath the stairs. The upper floor with the throne collapsed at some point. The only thing that would need to be changed is this:

Four more questions, if you don’t mind, Ady.

Since the shot of the severed arm will have the original furry hand now, will it still have blood, or will it be cauterized like in Revisited SD?

Will the Blu-Ray audio be DTS-HD MA?

What kind of menu designs do you have in mind for the Blu-Rays?

Is the aspect ratio going to be 2.35:1, like the 2011 Blu-Rays, or 2.39:1, like the 2020 Blu-Rays?

Since Adywan is using the Rogue One matte for the Death Star laser tunnel, does that mean he’ll revert the Death Star plans back to having the dish in the center, like in Rogue One?

Are the Falcon targeting monitors in ANH:R HD going to be the same as the SD version, or will they revert back to the original version, since The Force Awakens shows them that way?

In Rogue One, when Jyn transmits the Death Star plans to Admiral Raddus, the plans are reminiscent of the original look of them shown in the original theatrical version of Star Wars (1977).

I know that, but in the SD version of ANH:R, which came out several years before Rogue One, Adywan redesigned the Death Star plans using the hologram from Attack of the Clones.
