Beautiful… Absolutely can’t wait.
Shamook got a job at Lucasfilm??
This is just confusing. Their arms are the same in RO as in ANH??? What adywan did was chnage who’s arm got chopped off, to match what happens in the scene. We see Dr Evazan pull a gun to shoot Ben, then Ben cuts at Evazan and Ponda’s arm ends up on the floor with the blaster. So Ady switch the arms to make it so that Evazan’s arm is on the floor, becuase it makes more sence with what we saw happen. It was a mistake born form Geoge Lucas’s inexperiance with fight scene at the time, quite why he never thought to adress it as one of the many chnages he made in his SE I can’t fathom.
Evazan is also the one screaming in pain after Obi-Wan pulls out his lightsaber.
Because he was also sliced, he just wasn’t dismembered. Canonically, Obi-Wan got both of them with his swipes.
I just personally find it odd to go out the way to contradict both the original film and canon, but I’m not the one providing the edit, so of course Adywan can and should do whatever he wants to do.
I cannot believe we’re having the Flipper Debate again over a decade later. 😄 Ady removed the flipper arm after coming to the same conclusion the original crew must have, that it just begs the question of how he held a gun in the first place. But instead of following the original crew’s “just throw any arm on the floor”, Adywan made it the good Doctor’s. There’s no reason for him to change that.
There is a reason. It’s canonical and it’s the correct character from the original film.
You may disagree, but don’t say there is “no reason”.
Jar Jar Bricks said:
Agreed. It’s not like we ever see those two elsewhere in the saga. Even if we did, it would likely just be in comics.
I’d say keep what makes the most sense in the context of the film itself, which is Evazan’s arm with a blaster.
Yeah there’s a canonical story where Dr. Evazan is trying to fix Ponda’s arm with some janky prosthetics.
Besides that… it’s true to the original film.
I know Ady has his feelings on this, but man I really think Ponda’s arm should be the one sliced off since it’s canonical and it’s what is shown in the film.
If Lego Star Wars the Skywalker saga Mandalorian Season 2 pack includes “The Jedi” Episode and have Ashley Eckstein re-record Rosario’s lines, you should replaced Rosario’s voice with Ashley’s.
Rosario was great, replacing the voice would be ridiculous.
Cutting The Jedi also cuts his new weapon that he uses to fight off Gideon.
I’d simplify and condense that episode, but not cut it. I’d keep some of the conflict there, including his being hired to kill her.
It also gets rid of the whole reason they go to Tython, meet Boba and the reason Luke shows up at all.
Ahsoka cannot be cut.
Maybe, but he’s previously said he wants to release ANHRHD & ROTJR simultaneously. Being able to release them as a 3-pack would make sense.
Yes but that was back when he thought they were both going to be finished around the same time a few years ago, right?
I just don’t think he’s going to finish ANH then just sit on it for a year or more and not release it.
Right and I imagine we’ll get ANH shortly after the Empire upscale since he’s probably nearing the home stretch for ANH:R HD. It’s ROTJ that’s a long ways off.
Has anyone tried and had any luck with AI upscaling Revisited?
Could be a perfect placeholder while we anxiously await Ady’s final version. I’d do it if I had the hardware.
Exactly. When I saw so many articles at the time saying this was “correcting” ANH’s mistake, I rolled my eyes every time. They were completely and densely missing the point of the gesture.
I understand that Revisited is its own canon, however, has the thought of reversing the change of Chewie getting a medal to not conflict with “The Rise of Skywalker” been considered?
Canonically he did receive a medal. That was revealed in the mainline Star Wars comic in 2015.
could you start your own thread about it? so I don’t have to read about it?
What an odd thing to be contentious about. This directly pertains to the edit and I can’t imagine someone interested in ANH:R wouldn’t be interested in an upscaled version.
You could too.
Honestly, what’s stopping all of you “Man, I wish someone would do X” people from actually doing some research and giving it a try yourself? That’s what almost everyone here who makes edits and preservations did - there’s only a small subset who were already experienced when they started doing this stuff.
I know how to do it. My computer isn’t powerful enough.
Speaking of… does anyone have an AI upscaled copy of this? Or would be willing to run one. My machine isn’t powerful enough to do it.
Does this have the same bad compression and blocky darks during the duel as ForceGhostRecon’s edit?
Could I get a PM too? Thanks. 🙏🏼
Damn brother I’m sorry to hear all of that. We love your work but hope you can get things sorted out first and foremost.
Still, it’s very exciting to see ANH: R HD getting to the home stretch!
Unless he’s asking for the original standard def version?
True. HD has been worked on so long and been the subject here that I forget this is the original thread.
Can anyone link me to the mega?
This is very not finished.
While Scene 38 Reimagined was a standalone project made just for fun, it does not fit in with the dated look of A New Hope. If you want to put it into an edit of A New Hope, then edit all the VFX, models, practical effects, and matte paintings in the movie to look realistic and in-line with the sequel trilogy and Rogue One.
That’s exactly what the edit does. It replaces most of the film’s effects with modern VFX to lessen the impact of the scene.
Wait… video side of things is done for the whole film??
I think this is some of the silliest stuff I’ve seen in a long time. FGR is one of the best contributors to this site. He made an off color comment 4 years ago. Christ, We’re all adults… nobody was attacked or hurt or bullied. Just call him an idiot and move on, or just ignore it. Nothing he did, unless I’m missing something, deserved being cut off from contributing here and banned.
We all knew it was him…
And you didn’t think to let the moderators know?
No. Because everyone is working with the same information and can draw their own conclusions.
It’s not my place or my job to tattle on a user I suspect has been banned.
