Any ideas as to when ROTJ will be released? Are you removing Vader’s “Nooooooo!” from the Palps-Luke scene too?

I can’t be bothered to check what it looked like in ANH, because I know that regardless, I dislike this recolor. I guess I’m on my own as someone who’s willing to edit the OT to fit PT under certain circumstances.
Eagerly waiting for some screenshots!

If it’s possible, I would like to find a different shot to place immediately prior to the Hosnian system being destroyed, instead of cutting to Leia. If we can avoid cutting to Leia, it can be left slightly ambiguous about whether she is reacting via the Force to the planetary destruction only or if Han’s death is part of it. This one may need to stay as is, since it was hard enough to find enough shots to include!
Maybe use the shots of Kylo on the shuttle but somehow replace him with someone else or crop the footage to cut him out.
Rey thinking Luke Skywalker was a myth could stay in, later in the movie Han confirms to her that the Jedi were real and that resolves that part of Rey’s beliefs and allows her to realize that Luke actually was a real person and not just a story. Rey believes in “The Legend of Luke” and everything she’s heard until she meets him in TLJ and has her expectations subverted, fitting with that movie’s theme.
New changes are good to better match with TLJ, please leave in V2 for SKB. I would be willing to view a workprint again when you have one ready 😃
Not feasible and pointless I guess. The guy is never called Wedge anyway. He’sjust a random and very nervous pilot.
With the same voice as Wedge…
Now that it is getting the HD treatment, are you going to consider replacing “Fake Wedge” in the Rebel briefing?

Any chance for a MEGA or Google Drive link?
I have an idea of who he is playing, but it’s a big surprise, if it turns out to be true. I think his character would be new to the franchise, but connected to the Original Trilogy. If not, then he’s just a new new character.
Who do you think?
Official Deleted Scenes List
Corellian Foot Chase
Han Solo: Imperial Cadet
The Battle of Mimban: Extended
Han Versus Chewie: Extended
Meet Dryden: Extended
Very nice! Those would look great as simplistic Blu Ray covers.
Can I please have a link as well?
It is when a certain droid hijacks a certain vehicle. That should be more than enough 😉
Well, according to them it was seamless and if I hadn’t told them then they never would have guessed it was a fanedit.
However, for the movie itself, they just thought “it was okay and that they could have done more, it felt like they are running out of ideas.”
About to show your edit to my parents who have never seen TLJ, it will be interesting to see what they think!
Here’s a list I put together for all movies that involve Infinity Stones plus required for development as in my opinion it helps with understanding Infinity War the most:
Captain America: The First Avenger
Thor: The Dark World
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Guardians Of The Galaxy
Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Captain America: Civil War
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2*
Thor: Ragnarok (Sets up A:IW)
Avengers: Infinity War
Ant-Man And The Wasp (Sets up Avengers 4)
*Only needed for character development
Reign of the Empire
Watched it recently, it’s much better but on a personal subjective level, it doesn’t quite cut out enough for me. Biggest problem is that you left in the kids at the end which now make zero sense in the context of the film. On a technical level it was masterful as always though.
I used to agree with you, but just assume a passage of time. The kids don’t have to be from Canto Bight, they can just be kids anywhere inspired by Luke.
It’s so awesome to be listed in the “Special Thanks”. Great work on another quality edit Hal! Here’s to Episode IX hopefully not needing one. But maybe a certain Solo movie… 😉
What extractor are you using? For Hal’s TFA edit the only one that worked correctly for me was 7Zip. Try using that one as it may help because I had that same problem beforehand.
Cannot wait! A few friends of mine still haven’t seen TLJ yet and I convinced them to hold off for your cut. It’ll be a fun viewing party.
Any progress updates? I’m guessing it’s close to release if all that was left was Dr. Dre’s color correction.
Something for you to consider:
At the celebration at the end with the soldiers that replaced the matte where you added in the cameos for you and George there is around 4 rows of soldiers on both sides, but in the next shot with the 3 guys walking down the aisle, there are only 2 rows of soldiers on both sides. A small nitpick that would be cool if you could fix it.
Just to review Hal, how is the structure of the film changed with the added deleted scene of Luke Mourning?
Rey Confronts Luke
Luke Has A Moment
Out of Hyperspace with Leia
Poe and Finn Jacket Scene
Leia Slaps Poe
Luke’s Daily Routine
I’m considering getting the Kessel Run Falcon myself.
