A Forest Apart

What I Need

  1. Censored audio track for South Park: Uncle Hanks Christmas classics from south park season 3 DVD.
  2. KMGH airing
  3. KNXT airing
  4. WBNS airing
  5. ATV airing
  6. Network10 airing
  7. Full Sweden airing
  8. Good quality french airing with commercials
  9. Scan of filmfax magazine 69/70
  10. anything else you are able to contribute
    (for all airings a recording including commercials is preferable)

stuff I would like but I am not certain of their existence

  1. KCMO airing with commercials
  2. KCCI airing with commercials

Other things I need

  1. someone to create some nice blu-ray menus when I am done with everything else
  2. People who can subtitle the special in different languages
  3. someone who can create optional Wookie subtitles

Currently, I think this release will be on two Blu-ray50s, but this might change later on.

My version of the special will aim to improve on Zion, Editdroid, and Tasjos’s work. Here is a outline of its goals.

  1. replace shots tooken from star wars with 4K77 footage
  2. Include the fighting the frizzies segment and any other promos/bumpers from different TV channels
  3. Have the option to watch with or without commercials
  4. Have synced french, Spanish, and Rifftrax audio tracks
  5. Have optional Wookie subtitles
  6. Compile an audio commentary from different Interviews (only a possibility)

The main source I will use for my version of the special will be The Editdroid DVD. Then I will use 4K77 for the sections taken from A New Hope, and the official Blu-ray for the Vader widens the search scene. I will color correct the Editdroid using 4K77 as a reference up against the scenes taken from a New hope on the editdroid DVD. Then I will be using tasjo’s WHIO release for the audio dropouts and missing frames in the editdroid version. I will be sourcing the commercials from the zion hybrid and the WHIO for the opening CBS bumpers.

If you can contribute anything please do.

“Vader widens the search scene” on blu-ray is a different take

PS for youtube downloader use yt-dlp with -S vcodec:av1 added for best video quality and if your scared of the command line use yt-dlg with the same arguments and change the backend to yt-dlp

I know it is another take. I always use the free version of 4K video downloader.

Complete List of animated/partially animated Disney films
Time

So I started compiling this useful list of all animated/partially animated Disney films, I decided to post it here because this can be a valuable resource. Interestingly I can not find a complete list anywhere at all, so my goal is for this to be the ultimate go-to list. If there is anything I have missed please tell me. The default order is by release date, I could see this list especially being useful to Doctor M’s recommended Disney releases thread.

here is the link to the list

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?
Time

JadedSkywalker said:

I wanted to see George continue Luke’s story. I’m not at all interested in midichlorians. Or continuing anything from the prequels. Now we’ll never get the canon story of how Luke ended up after ROTJ.

Its like Bond just getting his license to kill and then we never get to see anymore movies.

I think it awesome that some people do love the prequels though more power to them. I wanted more swashbuckling adventure mixed with the spiritual aspects of the force and teaching the next generation of Jedi.

Maybe Lucas would have had all of these elements in his script but we will never know.

a spinoff describing the first force shamans who communicated with the Whills would be far out, like really weird. But maybe they could do history of the Jedi Bendu and the Bogan who became the Sith. and the first war between the Jedi and the Sith.

Well we will have the mandolorian season 3, and I feel like Luke will be important.

The Star Wars Holiday Special: The Definitive Release (Help Needed) (WIP)

Pretty audacious undertaking! A couple of items that you may have missed…

There are three known CBS “You’re On” promos… one with Valerie Bertinelli, one with Alan Alda and one with Carol O’Conner.

Also, I didn’t see the unedited HS cartoon in your list that has the Canadian campaign “wasting electricity turns people off” line recorded backwards.

Hopefully you’re working with Skot if you plan to use his website content in your project.

Thanks, I did not know a forum member ran the website. I assumed the same Person no longer owned it due to the drastic change in interface and information. Thank you for the information on the promos, do you know how I can find the third one? I have the one with a old man and the one with the girl with curly hair. I’ll make sure to PM Skot immediately. Intirely forgot about the standalone cartoon, do you know what the best source for that is?

Preserving the...<em>cringe</em>...Star Wars Holiday Special (Released)
Time

MattMahdi said:

Not an idiot.

It’s one of the earliest DVD transfers IIRC. Rikter distributed two versions: WMAR (that was the one with the commercials, right?) and another whose callsign I forget. I think it was too early for KCCI, but even if it wasn’t the video quality is definitely surpassed by more recent transfers.

(KCCI was seen as the gold standard for many years and it was distributed in a variety of forms. Seemed like everyone had their own menuing over the KCCI content. That was the second and last version I purchased, that one from OCP Movie. I then learned about this community and started zealously turning in sellers on eBay (whence came my first version).)

I really shouldn’t be answering a technical question without checking my information at home but I’m at a Super Bowl party and kinda bored…

Thank you, Can you PM me your copy of the angrysun please? I have been trying to gather recordings of all of the stations airings and all of the interviews with the cast and crew to eventually release as a Blu-ray image.

Idea &amp; Info: Return of the Ewok - on Hyperspace
Time

jaymanchu said:

I was wondering if anyone was planning on putting this to DVD. This is a short movie that Warrwick Davis filmed while making Jedi (then still called Revenge of the Jedi) Features characters and sets from Jedi and is really cool. I got to see it at C3 and now Star Wars.com has offered it’s hyperspace members a chance to download it. I haven’t yet, but plan on it. This would make a great addition to a Jedi Comp disk!

Link to Hyperspace article on “Return of the Ewok”

is there anyway to get this now?
