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

I don't know if Couruscant would work since the Death Star is supposed to be a secret project. I would suggest leaving the planet as a Generic planet somewhere out in space. This, to me, would effect the story of Star Wars the least and make the change more about visuals rather than about rewriting the story.

Everything looks absolutely awesome, as everyone else has said. But not only that it sounds awesome as well. I don't know what you did to Vader's voice, but it matches perfectly with ESB. ROTJ, and ROTS and really makes everyting fit together. If nothing else, your edit would kick A$$ for that.

Every change that I have seen so far only adds to the film and makes Star Wars feel more like the rest of the saga.

Keep up the good work.

P.S. I was really amazed to see how much adding a planet into an effects shot really made your scene feel like a mix of OT and PT. One thing that really sets the two styles apart, at least for me, is how Black and White space scenes are in the OT as compared to the PT.

First, off, I don't really know very much at all about audio editing and sound mixing, but I thought that there might be a way in which you could chnage the "Look" that the emperor says in "Look down there in the sanctuary moon" to sound like the name "Luke". Maybe by splicing the words "Look" and "You" together.

Just a thought.

In the original film, Luke calls the red R-5 an R2 unit when it explodes, but in the radio drama, he(Mark Hammil) correctly refers to it as an "R5 unit". Now this is a very minor point, and one could argue that R2 is just a generic term, and he wasn't being speciifc, but if you wanted, you could use the radio drama clip to correct Luke's mistake. I always thought this might be not to bad of an idea as Luke always struck me a sort of a geeky teckie sort of guy that would get something like that right.

Also, another possible audio change that I had thought of is, when Obi-Wan refers to the force for the first time, Luke responce of "the force!?" always sounded a bit too much as though he had never heard of the force. That always struch me as a bit suprising. While, he certainly wouldn't know much about the force, the idea that he had never heard it mentioned before always seemed a little wrong to me.

In the radio drama, when Mark responds, with "the force" he says the same words, however, the inflection in his voice makes it seem as though the force is something he has heard of, something he was a little curious about, but something about which he had never learned much about. This always seemed a bit more realistic to me, and always made his choice to enlist with Obi-Wan and his defence of the force to Han Solo a few days later more believeable. If it was up to me I would replace Luke's lines "the force" in the movie with his performance from the radio drama.

Would it be possible to reconstruct the 70mm ESB
Time
Hello all, I'm rather new here but have been lurking for a while. My name is Dan Stokes.

I am wondering if you guys think that it would be possible to reconstruct the 70mm version of ESB.

From what I know, the differences are the audio track, the wipes, and the shot of the falcon at the end. Now I imagine the wipes could be handled, and the audio track could be recontructed from the SE and the Story of Star Wars ESB, which uses the 70mm track and contains the alternate han and luke takes at the beginning and the alternate takes of Leia on the falcon and in cloud city.
The biggest problem I see is that I do not know of a source for the scene when the Millenium Falcon is docked to Home One and the camera pans to the medical ward window. Does anyone know of a sourse for this footage?


Also, IMDB states that "In the original theatrical release of the movie, after Luke is taken out of the Bacta tank, the medical droid is seen taking a sort of mask off of Luke's face." Is this true? did this scene actually appear or was it cut before the actual release?
