1080p Blu-Ray copies would certainly be doable, but I don’t know of anyone (including the members of the 4K77 forums) who is capable of authoring and burning a 4K Blu-Ray that is playable in a standalone player. I for one put my 4K copies on a flash drive to plug directly into my TV and watch them through my TV’s built in media player software. Most UHD BR players are capable of this as well.

1080p Blu-ray discs are fine, I just do not currently have the means or knowledge to do it myself. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I would if my BR burner hadn’t taken a crap recently.

The Last Jedi: Rekindled (RELEASED!)
Time

I mean, yeah, but Poppasketti’s post explains exactly why just doing that isn’t enough.

You can remove her from the movie, but the scene she’s featured in doesn’t work without her. Best idea anyone’s had is redubbing her lines and maybe also recoloring her armor to make her into an entirely different stormtrooper-in-command, but both of those things are tricky and haven’t really been attempted yet.

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Looking at it again and paying attention to both things you mentioned, I still don’t see any problems with it.

Are you talking about how the background is blurry? That’s because of the depth of field in the shot. The background in the original shot is closer to the actor, so it’s more in focus. It’s adequately blurry given the depth of field of the shot and how far away the new background is.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I’ll probably buy the first Episode I-IX Complete Saga 4K + standard Blu-Ray set and ditch all my old discs after that, whether the OOT is included or not, if I’m honest with myself. Just to have everything in a nice matching set and be covered for all future fan projects, and the ST in 4K. But that would be my last OT purchase unless a restored OOT is released, and would definitely be my last PT purchase unless I’m forced to rebuy themb for an official restored OOT.

Oddly, I don’t think I’d buy said set if it included Rogue One and Solo. I’d rather have just the “Skywalker Saga” itself in a boxed set and have the standalone movies all separate.

Digital Bits has TFA and R1 coming out in 4K at the end of this year, and everything else (both in a saga boxed set and as individual releases) in “the first half of 2020”.

How reliable is this source?

Digital Bits is not very reliable at all.

Fixed that

How so? I’ve never known them to be anything but reliable, and they’re very good at clearly calling out rumors as such.

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

They should have deleted it and just included his name during the Imperial trainee scene. Which I guess goes for a lot of these weird annoying moments… they shelved half the movie but didn’t have any idea what actually worked.

I don’t think they really shelved all that much (just reshot).

Yeah, my understanding is that Lord and Miller were let go for straying too far from the Kasdans’ script and improvising too much, and Howard was brought in to bring the movie back on track (aka follow the script).

schorman's HDTV Star Wars Saga Preservation
Time

I’m fine with either theatrical-approximate hardsubs for TPM or softsubs. As long as they’re not the garish hardsubs from the first HDTV preservation I’ll be happy, as I’ll probably do my own theatrical-approximate hardsubs for TPM anyway if you do softsubs.

ANH and ROTJ I’m indifferent on, just because I can’t really see myself downloading those anyway.
