That headless guy in the middle is really freaking me out.

I’m guessing he moved his head while the camera was set to a slow shutter speed? Either that, or someone did a really lousy Photoshop job removing his face for whatever reason.

His head was shopped off I guess. I wonder why?

I might be mistaken, but it seems in this new YouTube video he contradicted himself on a couple of things. Before he said the alignment of sources were performed with a semi-automatic software using the method of image registration - there even was a video demonstrating it on the SW logo.

iirc Mike’s always said that the stabilization had to be done by hand. I think he used the image registration software to fix warping.

Star Wars: <strong>The Rise Of Skywalker</strong> Redux Ideas thread

It’s a bit dark, but if Chewie stayed dead and Rey actually spent time dealing with the demons…that would’ve made for a better movie overall. In fact I’m sure that was intended at some point but the executive hands rewrote it. Same with 3po…

I agree. I thought that was what was going to happen after Chewie’s “death scene” and I was excited for it. I remember thinking “holy shit, Rey kills Chewbacca, this is going to be good,” but then we learn he’s still alive a minute later and Rey doesn’t really have to deal with it. Would’ve loved to see more of her struggling with the darkness within her, and afraid to continue on, fearing that she’ll destroy the rest of her friends.

Maybe someone could isolate the Nightsister magic sound effects from The Clone Wars and add it to some Exegol moments to convey the feeling that a mysterious power is at work.

Dang it, I wish the Star Wars Soundboard flash game were still up, I’m pretty sure they had some of those sounds.

I archived all of the sounds a while back, it’s available here:

4K83 reel by reel color grading

Did you flip that shot of Boba in Jabba’s palace or was that done on the initial release of 4K83?

Either way, I’m glad to see it corrected. That shot always bothered me.

That shot is from the Lapti Nek scene, which has always been like that (not mirrored). The mirrored shots of Boba Fett you’re thinking of are from the Boushh/Chewie scene. Presumably they stay mirrored in this version.

Help finding a high-res image
Time

Found it on a stock image site here. There were 2 versions on there, duplicate images but with different watermark placements. I combined them to make a clean image: https://i.imgur.com/8FWS0Nt.png
It’s slightly cropped on the bottom though. Found another one here (not cropped but lower res).
That’s the best I can do, but I bet someone else has a better one. 😃

Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

Pretty damn awesome. The retcons don’t make much sense, but they make the film much more interesting (as well as 7 and 8.) Wasn’t expecting Rey Palpatine at all, but I like it. I was rooting for that twist in Episode 8. Snoke = the Emperor works I guess. Hard to bring Palps back without that being the case.
It’s way too fast paced, and I was a bit overwhelmed. Should’ve been split into 2 movies or something. I’m eager to see some deleted scenes. Hopefully, edited in, they can give the film the breathing room it needs. An official extended edition would be great; it feels like they cut the film down a ton.
TROS is not perfect of course, but I really loved it. I’ll admit that the ending had me in tears. Way better than I was expecting after seeing the crap Rotten Tomatoes score. (Also I loved the John Williams cameo) For now I give it an 8.5/10

I haven’t ripped my ESB Blu-ray yet actually, I’ll get on that. Just going off memory, the 19SE hologram looks different to me.

Well, if you wanna do quick comparisons, you don’t need to rip your Blu-ray. Use this:

True. Didn’t feel like trying to match one of those frames though. Usually the redone stuff has just a slight difference in position/size, hard to tell if it’s not the same frame.

Emperor

Looks about the same to me.
