The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)
Time

When I started this, the Special Edition versions all had the prequel-era logos. So, for a Custom SE version I figured that’d feel right.
However, at least ROTJ would use the new 19SE as a source, which uses the modern LFL logo (which does not feel like it fits with the opening fanfare).

Rather than feel like the OT should try to “pick a side,” I would just rather let each trilogy have its own distinct opening flavor. No fuss and avoids awkwardness.

Well, I have included it in order to resolve the error in favor of the SE since Adywan’s Revisited was based on the same primary source. This time that’s not the case and the two didn’t really work when put next to each other, so I reverted it to the OOT version of that shot.
Fortunately the Emperor scene worked perfectly well, being in a separate environment.

OP updated to reflect a new release of ESB that is underway.
In short, it’s remastered using OohTeeDee’s 19SE regrade and D+80 but essentially unchanged in terms of content.
I no longer use Adywan footage save for the Emperor hologram scene.

Currently uploading some of the versions while encoding others, but this’ll be appearing in the usual places soon.

ANH is next, and may have more for me to tend to than the others.

The Clone Wars: Best of Both Worlds - A Different Approach
Time

The YouTube channel “Star Wars Story” has made tweaks to the 2003 Microseries to cohere with TCW and ROTS, and is friendly to OT.com. If you elect to include the Microseries, you might check it out and maybe enlist their work.

Also, I like the idea behind this. Help me finally get onboard with TCW.
