My thought was, that the line would be coming from the next scene. (example: TFA - The scavenger, resisted you?!) So you wouldn’t need a reaction shot of Anakin/Padme in the hallway.
So in theory, it would be:

  • Anakin & Padme are walking through the hallway
  • VO of Dooku: Greetings, senator. (or maybe "May I ask why a senator is all the way out here on Geonosis?)
  • Cut to next scene
  • Pamde: You’re holding a Jedi knight…

So, a split edit/L-cut? I like this idea.

Yeah, it’s a “sourced from a release print” thing. They got super lucky with the 4K83 print since it was (assuming I remember right) a show print that’s a couple generations closer to the negative than a release print would be, so it was A) rarely projected and thus in much better shape, and B) not nearly as contrasty, so you don’t have the crushed blacks or clipped whites that the 4K77 print has in some areas.

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

Darth Lucas said:

Rogue One attempted to fix this continuity error by giving ponda a similar arm to the severed one shown in the Jedha scene.

Ady, I wonder if thats a change worth implementing in ANHR:HD? To change ponda’s hands BEFORE the arm is severed to match as opposed to changing the arm on the ground.

Would provide better continuity with Rogue One as well.

I’d rather cut the cameo out of Rogue One myself.

Despecialized V 4K77: Dawn of Justice
Time

4K77 version 1.0 is NOT Sanjuro’s grade. The no-DNR 1.0 is white balanced to the sprocket holes.

4K77 no-DNR v1.4 has Sanjuro’s grade and a new scan of the opening crawl (1.0 used the SSE crawl upscaled from 1080p).

The DNR versions of 4K77 all have an entirely different color grade by williarob, in addition to some more cleanup than the no-DNR. The MKV versions use the SSE crawl upscaled from 1080p, and the Blu-Ray version uses the new 4K scan of the crawl.

This is all for SW. For ROTJ/4K83, Sanjuro’s grade is v1.1 for the no-DNR release, and v1.1 or v1.2 for the DNR release (v1.2 being SkyDude’s DNR settings and the basis for the v1.2 Blu-Ray release). All ROTJ v1.0s were graded by ohteedee if I’m not mistaken.

  • Star Wars: 4K77 Blu-Ray release, which is the DNR version - no reel change markers, some more cleanup, and much less grainy without losing detail - plus the updated scan of the crawl which the DNR MKV doesn’t have. The only drawback IMO is the color grading, which is a little uneven, and Sanjuro’s excellent regrade can’t be applied to it easily as it was graded differently than the non-DNR release.
  • Empire: Despecialized 2.0
  • Jedi: 4K83 DNR - get the v1.1 (Sanjuro grade), v1.2 (SkyDude DNR settings and Sanjuro grade), or the v1.2 Blu-Ray release (same as v1.2 MKV). Like the DNR 4K77, it has no reel change markers, and Sanjuro’s color is a marked improvement over the initial v1.0 standard and DNR Blu-Ray releases.

How do you actually watch this? There’s a dead link to iTunes and a YT trailer without it hosted… this is… disappointing.

To expand on what Starkiller said, for legal reasons we cannot share links openly on the forum, so you’ll never find a “Download Here” or “Stream Here” link on originaltrilogy.com or fanedit.org - in both cases, you have to send a private message to the creator and they’ll respond in private with a link.

Is anyone here aware that a Darth Vader breathing sound is heard at the end of the credits? It’s a nice touch and I think it could be added to The Approaching Storm. The only edit of Episode II that I’m aware adds in the breathing is Attack of the Phantom.

Seems like a waste of effort to me. Who’s ever going to hear or notice it? I never knew there was any such thing in TPM or any other SW movie.

Personally a no for me. Since one, the scene doesn’t really serve any purpose but a “Oh hey its Greedo!” and two, importantly it is another example of trying to shrink the Star Wars Galaxy. All these silly cameos and connections just make the whole narrative small when we are talking about countless galaxies, planets, etc.

Maybe so, but it does show off an aggressive side to Anakin and would work as foreshadowing for his future.

Not worth the horrendous “fighting” acting and incredibly stupid OT character cameo.

I didn’t go with that version of that line because the action climax has many other lines in her deep voice, so making that one change would seem weird.
I’d love to have the whole movie in her higher pitched voice but it seems virtually impossible to adjust pitch of just her voice and not the rest of the soundtrack.

It is quite possible to go into the audio channels and separate her voice to adjust her voice close to how she sounded in the trailers.

I don’t see why this is worth the effort.

Also, personal preference maybe, but I’d prefer “star systems,” which sounds a bit more pulpy to me than “solar systems.” I’m not sure if “solar systems” is a phrase anyone says in the movies (excepting its use in this crawl, obviously).

+1 for “thousands of star systems.” Leia even specifically uses that phrasing at Tarkin in ANH.

Star Wars 1977 70mm sound mix recreation [stereo and 5.1 versions now available]

I hope the 5.1ch mix for TESB will have a 70mm version which will contain the changes which were on the 70mm mix like Luke saying “You were lucky to get out of there” instead of “You’re lucky you didn’t taste very good” among other things.

Those weren’t part of the 70mm mix. We have in-theater audio recordings of the 70mm mix to prove it, which also prove that the ending sequence was cut differently, meaning you couldn’t make a true 70mm mix restoration and just include it as a separate audio track; you’d need to alter the video as well.

Okay. But my point is, I think a rough approximation of the 70mm mix but synced to the 35mm cut would be great for 4K80 and Harmy’s Despecialized.

I’m about 95% sure hairy_hen determined it’s essentially the same as the 35mm mix except for the picture editing differences at the end, but I could be mistaken. I’ll try and find the thread discussing it.

JEDIT: https://originaltrilogy.com/topic/Hopefully-the-last-70mm-vs-35mm-ESB-audio-differences-thread/id/14128

And from another thread:

hairy_hen said:

The 35mm and 70mm ESB mixes are actually very similar for the most part. Only a few small differences between them, with the exception of the very last scene of the film, which is significantly different due to the change in editing.

The 16mm mono has a number of changes that later ended up in the special edition, as well as the foreign language versions.

Ever heard of suspension of disbelief?

I don’t necessarily agree with Dom’s premise here about that ESB scene in particular, but this is something I’ve said (or seen said) in reply to many criticisms of TLJ when it comes to nitpicks like the arcs of the First Order’s cannons firing on the Resistance fleet, the bombs dropping onto the First Order Dreadnought, the hyperspace kamikaze attack, and a few others.
