4K restoration on Star Wars

Is it true that Disney removed “A News Corp Company” from the Fox Logo but otherwise used the static 90s version that appeared on the SE originally? Normally i don’t like tinkering with opening logos, even something minor like that, as it’s interesting to preserve the history of these companies. But as the logos have already been swapped from the original, whatever i guess.

Absolutely love the retro cinemascope logo used on SW and empire originally

Yes. Looks much better without it, I think.

Info Wanted: How to download the audio from the Star Wars soundboard

A bit lacking in some areas, but I will see what I can do with these. Thank you

Oh, I wasn’t responding to you actually, I was just downloading the links in JohnnyR2D2’s previous post and figured I’d upload them all together. I didn’t realize there were even more soundboard clips. I’ll see what else I can dig up. 😃

Help Wanted: NEED ISOLATED BITS AND PIECES of dialogue and sound effects sequences from A NEW HOPE

Bewy said:

As for bits of dialogues from the movies you can find here stuff from the late Star Wars Soundboards website section. I guess there won’t be everything but hey, it’s a start 😄

Thanks for sharing that, I archived all the files here if anyone wants to download them all at once:!ebxkTKyR!vphGrFlM77_DCtaGdzqc0XhKfj7mQk10BrnhbtHuLzw

edit: found way more, updating link soon

edit 2:!DXoUjQAC!-wv0tAvpfAeVGS22eW6SKQ
All the soundboard files I could find. Contains about 1,400 audio clips.

edit 3: added a few missing files, it’s now 100% complete!

The <strong>Original Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread

Plus it makes Luke’s rejoining the rebels during the briefing difficult to handle.

And I say that as a proponent of the idea.

The other problem is, you can’t really break up the stuff on Dagobah. It’s really just two scenes, talking with Yoda and then talking with Ben. But it doesn’t make sense to cut away after Yoda’s death because if you want to cut back later to the scene with Ben, you’d end up wondering “well what has Luke being doing hanging out at this dead guy’s house?”

I’ve seen the idea knocked around to somehow do a background replacement and make the Obi-Wan scene take place on Tatooine/in Obi-Wan’s hut, but that seems…difficult to pull off at best.

I’ve played around with it before, I think it’s doable. But it would require a few completely new background mattes, as some of the shots don’t quite match up. Getting it to look right would be real tricky.
A couple rough quick concepts I made a while back:

Once I find the time to work on my own ROTJ edit, I’ll definitely try my hand it piecing this scene together. I’ve always loved the idea.

Does the behind the scenes footage look restored to anyone else?

And a pro SE crank in the chat already…

Looks like it to me! And that was me dissing the SE, lol. It would be downright insulting to tell John Dykstra and the other legends in attendance that “special editions are great, makes it look modern.” I don’t get these people.

It’s a neat idea, but it looked downright absurd. I don’t buy for one second that I’m seeing an old Alec Guinness sword fighting. And as others have said, it doesn’t match the look of the film at all.

The camera moves, cinematography, lighting, color grade, editing, costumes, etc. are so different that it would be extremely jarring to include this in any edit, imo. Perhaps someone could find a way to squeeze in a few quick shots, but it’d be tricky to match the surrounding footage.

It’s a neat idea, but it looked downright absurd. I don’t buy for one second that I’m seeing an old Alec Guinness sword fighting. And as others have said, it doesn’t match the look of the film at all. Glad you’re not including it. Anyway, love what you’ve done so far, I look forward to seeing more. It’s interesting to see what Star Wars would look like had it been made today.
