ZigZig's THE PHANTOM MENACE Theatrical reconstruction 1080p – V1.0 work in progress
Time

ZigZig said:

I’m still actively working on it (I found and scanned 35mm cells for each subtitle, so that I can now rotoscope those “original” subtitles instead of trying to make new ones).
The despecialization is almost done, I still have to regrade the colors.

Awesome, I can’t wait! What will your regrade colors be based from?

Star Wars: Path of the Jedi Preservation Effort

In the final video this is the section from around 3:13 to 3:34, if you can identify an official version of this music please let me know!

I just watched your recreation and I’m speechless. I saw Path of the Jedi in April 2016 at Disneyland and got chills all the way through, both back then and watching the recreation. To answer your question the music at 3:13 to 3:34 is original to PotJ and there is no where else it can be heard. Excellent work!

P.S. Is it possible you could make the version that included a section for The Force Awakens (Not the version that simply added the Sept 2015 TFA Trailer, but the 2017 one that starts with the Han Solo voiceover “Ever since Luke disappeared…”)?

The Disney/Fox acquisition....

This is from my 35mm print of Empire.

As for the Fox Fanfare… the fanfare was extended when CinemaScope was launched in the 1950s. It hadn’t been used for a while… but George Lucas requested it be brought back for the release of Star Wars.

The big note you hear when the enormous STAR WARS logo smashes onto the screen is in the same key, B-flat major, and was designed to come in off the back of the Fox fanfare.

So yeah, it is very attached to the Star Wars franchise.

I’m a huge music nut (especially when it is John Williams) but I didn’t know this, even though it makes total sense. So cool!

The Last Jedi Digital/Blu-Ray Release: NOT Theatrical Cut?
Time

While listening to the isolated score track that is available with the digital release of TLJ today, I believe I may have caught a change from the film that was released theatrically and the digital/Blu-Ray release. When seeing the film for the first time I swear I heard Yoda’s theme in the end credits. The theme is in the “Finale” track on the official soundtrack, but not in the isolated score audio track or my digital copy that I bought. Can anyone else confirm that Yoda is in the credits or am I just crazy? Also, has anyone found anything that would make the theatrical release different to the digital/blu-ray release?

The Last Jedi: Legendary (SPOILERS)

I just started rewatching The Last Jedi and I had to pause it. Because during the opening prank call scene, Poe says something that I can’t believe hasn’t been nitpicked yet. “Hux… With an H?” Is anyone else bugged by that kind of thing? Star Wars has its own language but now Poe straight up addresses English letters? I feel like a massive geek but I can’t be alone here, can I? Is something like this a line you’re willing to remove, Hal?

After rewatching the film from the digital release and reading the novelization (which I recommend) Poe actually asks for “General Hugs”; that’s why Poe doesn’t respond to Hux. Basic in Star Wars does resemble our actual alphabet so the “…with an H” actually does work.

DESPECIALIZED EDITION <em>QUALITY CONTROL</em> THREAD - REPORT ISSUES HERE
Time

Not an issue, more of a nitpick really, but some moments in the isolated score audio track for the three films are wrong. Sometimes the track uses the original recordings that are in place of what is actually heard or not heard in the final cut. Although its cool to see the films with the score that John Williams originally intended, it would be nice to have a true isolated score. To help I made a list of all the on the isolated score that do not match up with the cues and edits that are heard or not heard in the film.

Star Wars 2.5

11:27 – 13:05
(Jawas and R2) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

15:23 – 15:30
(Sandcrawler) The cue that was used in the film is missing

1:17:20 – 1:18:55
(Dianoga) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:19:06 - 1:19:47
(The Trash Compactor) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

The Empire Strikes Back 2.0

2:06 – 2:54
(The Probe Droid) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

4:15 – 5:42
(Echo Base) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

7:02 – 8:18
(Echo Base 2) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

15:06 – 16:00
(Snowspeeder Rescue) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

16:19 – 16:50
(The Bacta Tank) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

19:37 – 20:21
(The Imperial Fleet/The Executor) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

25:42 – 26:05
(AT-AT Walkers) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

47:47 – 49:35
(Yoda) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

57:07 – 58:20
(Tie Bombers/Mynock) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:00:28 – 1:02:01
(Luke’s Training) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:05:15 – 1:05:29
(Executor) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:12:52 – 1:13:08
(The Executor) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:39:27 – 1:40:45
(Freezing Chamber Duel) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:42:45 – 1:44:54
(Duel 2) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

1:58:14 – 1:58:38
(The Rebel Fleet) The cue that was used in the film is missing

2:02:10
(End Credits) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

Return of the Jedi 2.5

30:35 – 31:22
(Sarlaac Pit) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

45:08 – 47:15
(Obi-Wan) Uses original recorded score, not the edit/cue heard in the film

(Ewok Battle) I know the insert is lost

Request - Star Wars/The Empire Strikes Back/Return of the Jedi theatrical scores.
Time

I’m looking for any fan preservation of the Star Wars original trilogy soundtrack that includes the theatrical film edits of the score ('77 '80 '83). Many threads that have the edits are dead (haven’t been active for a couple years) and I don’t know where to find them. Any information as to where I can find the version I’m looking for will be a big help. Thanks in advance.
