StarWarsLegacy.com - The Official Thread

It’s true, we will probably never see it, so too bad. I’m not comfortable with what sounds like people speaking ill of him or his project, though. His goal was always to get an official release out of it—a lofty but laudable goal at which he was always unlikely to succeed. It’s a shame that we’ll never see it, but there’s no reason to speak ill of the project, Mike, or people who voice a desire to see it.

I'll never understand the attitude of people who oppose the release of the unaltered original trilogy.

I’ve been putting up with that mindset since at least the early 2000’s. Gave up on a Trek forum, (one with a general SF discussion board) and the Home Theater Forum because I was just plain weary of the Groundhog Day/temporal loop those discussions always seemed to end up in. Thank goodness I found OT, and for the life of me, I don’t even recall how I found it.

I don’t even want to imagine the pro Maclunkey arguments now. 😉

HTF folks are hostile to the OUT? I’ve never talked Star Wars there, mostly just like to read catalog BD reviews and might use it for some hardware advice in the future, but I find it hard to believe that such a place wouldn’t as a general rule support SW77 on disc…

at D+ is empire of dreams available.
is this in real hd or upscaled?

Parts are upscale , parts in HD. This is the new version that was done a while back for HDTV. They asked Lucasfilm if they could have the footage they used in HD and they refused, so those parts had to be upscaled. Most of the “talking head” footage is HD though.

Is this because they didn’t want to share HD of unaltered shots?

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW

Harmy said:

I am now in contact with oohteedee and we’re talking about collaborating on v3.0 using his D+xy versions as a basis and despecializing them further.

the focus of Despecialized can shift to being what a modern transfer of the movie

That said, will original opening logos still be preserved? I know some (not all) studios use newer logos on restorations of classic films, but I think for the despecialized crowd original logos are important.

Info Wanted: Star Wars Episodes 1 to 9 - Correct buying / downloading versions?

I had no idea there were so many changes to the prequels. They’re so small and inconsequential. Roof moss? Really, that’s what bugged him most about AOTC? I really only knew about TPM pod race and CGI Yoda.

Original vision my ass. George just has a neurotic inability to consider something finished.

blu-ray.com reviewers are not kind to this release. Frozen grain and some lost detail (though they still note its the best Star Wars has looked on home video to date–not saying much) due to excessive DNR.

The blu-ray.com reviews of the 4K OT really hands the release its ass. Shame. Could’ve been a great source if they hadn’t tinkered so much.
