My personal edit of A New Hope (with SC38 Reimagined) (Released)

This edit sounds interesting and I would be interested in a link when you have the opportunity.

I am also wondering about what are the changes done in this version by ForceGhostRecon’s? It looks like he is apparently banned and I have no idea what is going on with that.

PM sent!

As for the original edit made by Forceghostrecon, he streamlined the FXItInPost lightsaber battle so that it flowed better. I made the following changes to his edit (though it’s been awhile so I might forget something):

  1. I restored the original ANH opening (the FGR edit added a new scene using footage from Rogue 1, which I didn’t want)
  2. I restored the original Death Star explosion (the FGR edit used a new CGI explosion that I wasn’t super fond of)
  3. I restored the scene where Luke meets up with Biggs before the attack on the Death Star (FGR didn’t include this scene in his edit, but I personally think it’s great so I put it back in)
  4. I changed Vader’s dialogue when he approaches Obi Wan back to his original dialogue (The original edit from FXItInPost replaced the dialogue with Vader’s line to Ahsoka in Rebels, which I thought was a bad change.)
  5. I edited some of the wonky looking bits in the saber battle, namely around the part where Obi Wan is talking to Vader and his lips don’t match his words.
  6. I converted the new SC38 to widescreen so the aspect ratio matches the rest of the movie (I did this by replacing most of the video and overlaying it with the existing audio)
  7. As an optional alternative version, I added in the scene with Jabba the Hutt (I think the movie works better without this scene, but it’s also canon and my thinking is that this edit is following canon but with a more modern saber duel. Also sometimes I just dig the novelty of seeing a CGI alien in ANH).

I’ve also been planning for awhile to make an alternate extended version that restores the hallway scene from the FXItInPost edit, but real life keeps getting in the way. Hopefully I get around to it eventually.

I just discovered this page, and loved the idea of seeing the full movie with sc38 included. Could you please send me the link to your edit?

Yo, this is sick! I can’t believe I didn’t find this until now. Do you still have the link to the edit? And if so, could you please send it?

Hello! I would love to see this version of a new hope with the SC38 reimagined in it. could i get a link too? thanks!!

vaderkin said:

and just curious did you use the special edition from 1997? i think that would fit SC38 reimagined best!

It’s the special edition, however the scene with Han and Greedo is the original with Han shooting first. Also, I made a version that excludes the scene with Jabba the Hutt as well as a version that includes it, so you can choose whether or not you want that scene.

Anyway, what do you guys suppose is gonna happen with Tatooine’s political and cultural environment going forward? Is Boba still gonna be running things as a crime lord by the time of RoS and beyond, or will he eventually transition things to a more legitimate government? I feel like Tatooine is being set up to develop into an overall more peaceful and less crappy place to live. The only hint we really have so far of the status of Tatooine in the future is that old lady traveling alone at the end of RoS. I wonder if the fact that she was traveling alone could be a sign that Tusken Raiders are no longer a threat by that time period.

Also, speaking of Tuskens, does anyone else really enjoy how these Disney+ shows have been developing and humanizing various mook aliens from the older movies? What aliens do you suppose could be next? Will we see some Hutts who aren’t crime lords at some point? Will we get to see some Ortolans who aren’t just playing drums all day? Maybe an Ewok who pulls a Star-Lord and leaves behind his terrestrial bound brethren to go have a bunch of adventures in space?

Also, what do you suppose Grogu is doing as of the ST and beyond, now that we know he doesn’t stay with Luke and thus probably survived? At that point he’d be, what, in his 80s, so still a kid? I wonder when his species learns to talk. I’m guessing if they ever show Grogu later in his life it’ll be well after he learns to talk and reaches maturity. Maybe we’ll skip ahead like 200 years at some point and see a young adult Grogu wearing a modified suit of Mandalorian armor while wielding a modified dark saber.

People really need to stop projecting so many expectations onto Star Wars.

People really need to stop projecting so many assumptions onto how others consume tv shows and movies.

I mean, if you’re happy dissecting everything from a meta perspective, more power to you. But that doesn’t seem to be the case for most people in the various fanbases I’m part of, rather there’s a general attitude of discontent if not outright misery.

Regardless, though, I just don’t see any merit in that line of discussion anymore. “X story is good because it does this list of things right! Y story is bad because it does this list of things wrong!” “No, X story is bad because it does this list of things wrong! Y story is good because it does this list of things right!” Maybe it’s just because I’ve gotten too old for that kind of critical mindset, Idaknow, but I’m done with it, personally.
