Star Wars: Remastered - A New Special Edition
Time

I also agree with the comments on timing. Also you might be able to fake the engines look in after effects. But I think they look fine as is. I mean, technically the Tantive is already flying by and the engines are at full force, where as the clip that was posted above what the ship getting started. The fire wouldn’t necessarily be visible as it’s whizzing by. Just my 2 cents

Also I have a node setup for blender that will fake the engine glow in post. If you want I can send you the .blend file and you can play around with it.

I don’t think I could help with the voice, but I might be able to help with the VFX. I think if your going to do this right you are going to need original audio and not just splice together audio from the other movies/tv shows. You might be able to reach out to someone who can do a good impression on YouTube. Someone not looking to monetize their channel. That’s what I did with my edit of AOTC and I think it turned out well.

There are parts of it that just look bad, like all of the force powers, those would need to be fixed. Also my wife says it’s too fast, and in some places it is. It’s like so close to working

I agree, I think in theory it’s a great idea, but the execution needs some work. Kudos to these guys doing it, but it just feels not professional in places. I think it’s too fan boy looking. If it was a little more conservative it think it would be perfect and would integrate a bit better with the surrounding footage.

Blender and a good Vader model would be your best bet. Unless someone here has a Vader costume. You might also look online for a Vader cosplayer that would be willing to help out with the performance, then all you would need is to composite it in After Effects

JEDIT:
Also, will the dialog be the same as what is already in Solo?

I might be able to help if need be.

FXitinPost has just released his SC.38 “fanfilm”/remake of the Vader/Obiwan duel from A New Hope and it’s pretty awesome. Some shots look a little funny, but with a little editing, I think it would be a great addition to this “remaster” of yours. Check it out:

(just a shame Vader has the wrong gloves on. So much work done and such a simple detail overlooked… sucks, but it’s still pretty awesome to see the new shots and choreography)

I don’t know about this, some of it feels like it could fit, but most of it feels off

Opening Test Shot #2. I decided to entirely replace this shot with CGI. Original models taken from the Blu-ray just didn’t match rest of the VFX in terms of image quality.

Wow! Man that looks nice. Quick question though, what program are you using to accomplish this work. Also, I would be interested in knowing some of the technical aspects of your planet creation as well.

Convert .mov to .mkv?
Time

Also check out videohelp.com
Handbreak is going to re-encode your video which means there is going to be some (even if minute) quality loss. If you want absolutely no loss check into “demuxing” and .mov into its elementary streams (the audio and video separated) then get MKVToolNix to remux into an MKV.
You may be able to drop the MOV into MKVToolNix and have it remux it into an MKV without gaveling to demux at all.

Blu-ray Blank Media
Time

Good to know, I did some research that said there are 2 different types of Blu-ray Disc LTH and HTL and that the HTL are the better of the 2 because they last longer. Also in the research I did it said that verbatim were LTH discs and therefore not as good as Panasonic discs that product HTL. Granted this information was almost 10 years ago, but I am concerned about longevity of my discs.

Since the PT won’t be relevant to OT:R, which canyon matte will be used for this shot that R2 travels through in ANH:RHD?
ANH:R

SE/Blu-ray

Theatrical

The matte for ANH:R was made to match closer to what Tatooine looked like in the PT.

Just my personal opinion, but I think the current ANH:R looks great.
