I guess no one here went to the marathon leading up to TFA last December to see which versions were being run?

My friend (who’s a projectionist) did. He says the DCP’s are sourced from the 2011 Blu’s, except for TPM, which was a 2D folddown of the 3D version.

What differences exist in the 3D release?

Beats me, this is what he insists on saying when I ask him.

I’ve not actually seen it, but I think they changed the Fox logo to the new, late 2000s version. Other than that, not a clue.

TFA Blu Ray Releases
Time

Bought the standard edition from Best Buy, price match to Amazon for $20. I like the slip and the original poster art. Don’t like the steelbook design or steelbooks in general. Re: target version, don’t like digi books nor am I huge on cast interviews, so wasn’t worth $5. Re: Wal-Mart, a great design for kids I bet. But alas I’m not a kid anymore

Is Obi-Wan a Jedi Master or a Jedi Knight?
Time

In case you wonder where I stand on this issue:

Due to my age, I became a Star Wars fan during the releases of the prequels. So, when I first watched them, I started referring to them by numbers, due to the strong presence of the Roman numerals in the prequel posters and the OT DVD covers. Then the Blu-Rays came out and I bought them to replace my pillarboxed DVDs. This is when I really became peeved at the SEs, due to the new changes which then made me look back and see what else had been changed, making me realize what a farce this all was. For purity’s sake and somewhat out of protest, I started referring to them as Star Wars, Empire, and Jedi, in other words becoming an SW old soul. So I never went through a “New Hope” phase. Today, I’m already to the point that I get annoyed and “correct” my friends when the say things like “the fourth one” or “episode 5,” and don’t you dare refer to it as “A New Hope” around me.

Who cares? In Star Wars there wasn’t even a mention of “Jedi Master’s”

But there was in ESB

He used the italics when spelling “Star Wars” for a reason. The film is more widely known as A New Hope but he chooses to call the film by it’s proper name.

Hence why I used the word but.

Are they actually shooting in 70mm?

No, they are using the new Arri Alexa 65, the 6.5K digital equivalent of a 65mm film camera. This is the third film to use this camera, but first to be fully featured. IMAX is also using the Alexa 65 as a basis for their new digital IMAX camera.

What does this mean for aspect ratio? I kind of liked the idea of the non episodic films having a completely unique visual style, even down to the AR

you know what made me geek out more than anything? They had the “X” shaped antenna on top of the star destroyer bridge standing upright like it did in the original film - it was laid flat in the subsequent movies. But the fact they’re paying attention to those kind of tiny details is AWESOME.

But yes, looks pretty great. The one thing that has me a little… worried (for lack of a better word) is the martial arts. That kinda feels out of place in a film set right before the original. Will certainly wait and see how it integrates in the full film, but it was the one thing that kinda stood out in a not-so-good way in the trailer. Everything else looks friggin fantastic!!

Also got the storm trooper silver ANH grills right, something GL couldn’t be bothered with even for the SE of the same movie.
