This project is only interesting if we manage to get our hands on a much better transfer. I was hoping for some recent tv airing captured with a dvd recorder or even some hdtv sources (my expectations are a bit high, I know). But I remember watching the film a couple of years ago on french television and it was much better than the crappy dvd's availables.
I'm glad that I'm not the only one interested in a decent dvd of this film.
The three comic books would be a really great addition as a bonus in a gallery features.
Nice one sheet, never seen that before.
It is the european poster. Here is a high-res version of the picture
That would make a great dvd cover don't you think?
I always have some very fond memories about this Walt Disney production. Alas, there are still no decent dvd available. I bought the uk zone 2. Image format is 2.35 but like Star Wars OT, it isn’t an anamorphic transfer. The picture is very grainy too. And zero bonus, not even a trailer.
Does this film has been aired on tv recently? Is there any hope to get a better copy somehow?
You can get the video here. Click on the green icon below the pic and Démarrer le téléchargement.
Alas, there is no screen capture because Lucasfilm seems to have forbidden the french press to do so.
I don't have time to translate the whole review, but they talk mainly about the poor video quality with compression problems, spots and grainy picture. 5/10
"I bet you went up to Mrs. Lincoln at the Ford Theatre and said "How was the show? Did I miss anything?"
One of my Fav movies. I watched it just the other day.
This post reminded me of my excitement when I heard the Original unaltered trilogy was coming out on dvd before GL crushed my dreams by not making them anamorphic.
According to this article on a french website, the Z2 french dvd's of the OT will be anamorphic with 16/9 compatibility.
Well, I can't think of a lot to ask about given that Toby's view while inside Jabba was pretty limited. But I'm definitely curious to know what other roles he may have played in the film, if any. Often with extras in the production (especially little people) they are called upon to play other bit parts or perform other functions as well.
I wonder if Toby was there when they shot the sequence where Jabba's dancer fell into the Rancor's pitt half naked.
better ending for Episode IV
Ooo, off topic, but if there's a place to get the 1977 Oscars, they've got to have 1968 too, right? I've never seen Stanley Kubrick's acceptance speech for 2001.
2001 wasn't even nominated for best picture. It only earned best special effects. So, I don't think there was a Kubrick's acceptance speech at all.

I didn't know there was a Turkish Star Wars.
It's called "The Man Who Saves the World".
I'm counting on you guys.

Some stormtroopers go down to Tatooine and fail to capture Pricess Leia. When they get back to their Star Destroyer, their leader is brought in front of Vader to explain his squad's failure. After the stormtrooper basically says "er, sorry, we failed" Vader says to this guy "You will be stripped of your privilages for 100 days!". No Darkside force choking for this guy, no "appology accepted" lines, just a slap on the wrist for the stormie and back to business!
Yeah, but they kill everyone on the planet before leaving! Quite unlike the "Star Wars" stormtroopers, these blokes seem to never miss!
Looks familiar ?
