This is kind of crazy to me. There are so many fair points to complain and discuss about on TLJ and people choose to stress over bombs? It’s not even a good nitpick. It’s so, for the lack of a better word, and apologies in advance if offending anyone, stupid. I don’t know what went through those people’s heads when watching the movie but I’m glad it didn’t happen in mine.
How would you people feel if Disney released the OOT in glorious 4K and then Lucas bought back the franchise and made a proper Sequel Trilogy?
There already is a proper sequel trilogy.
Sort of. Star Wars isn’t really Star Wars without George at the helm IMHO
That’s an interesting discussion. I kimd of agree, but for example:
I notice Harley Quinn is your avatar here. I take it you’re a Batman fan, right? So, is Batman really Batman without Bob Kane and Bill Finger? Is Paul Dini eligible to write Batman stories and whatnot? So Rian Johnson should be eligible to write a Star Wars film, no?
Man I haven’t watched TFA in 3 years but I’m really looking forward to watching your version! 😄

Has anyone heard anything about the Skymaster version lately, or know where I can seek out news? I’m hoping to scope it out for my ANH project that’s nearly finished.
the 4K77 forums.

Here’s a slight improvement to the ‘energy binder’ scene. I think it’s a little better, and has one fewer fan-editor-induced reordering of shots.
I really like this!
Yep, sounds really good now.
OK, it may only be me but 3PO speaks so quickly I can’t entirely make out what he’s saying:
“I have never…something…mission…something…that nature.” That’s all I understand.
Yeah, me neither. You got more out of it than me though.
Very well, thanks for the reply and for all the effort. In case of financial trouble I (and other members, certainly) volunteer to help cover the costs. $10k is quite a bit of money.
And from my understanding, Team Negative1 has no TPM prints, so… with several Star Wars and other media projects being worked on right now by the team, I doubt 4K99 is a priority.
Great! Will you be needing donations to cover any costs?
Would it be a good idea to go that public with 4K77? I mean if it’s all good then rock on but… it could maybe bring some unwanted attention to the project? I don’t know, I may be overly worried.
Dawn before the race" is nice though. My only issue with it is the unfinished sfx work.
Sticks out like a sore thumb though, pretty different from most other deleted scenes in the 9000 series. I’m all in favor for the “it’s working!” scene.

Here’s a new version of this scene, with the music in much better shape. I used left and right channels to fill in the center whenever there is no dialogue or non-traffic foley, in order to only have one innocuous crossfade of the musical score. Sounds much better.
By the way, concerning this scene, something that’s always distracted me is how in the last shot the water fountain’s noise suddenly comes in really loud, despite not being there for every other shot in the scene. I wonder if it annoys anyone else? And if so, if it’s fixable/worth the effort?
I mean, no need for it to be someone with Harmy’s level of skills. Anyone could make a theatrical ROTS version if they so wish, just replace a couple of seconds of audio and use a few HDTV shots and you got it.
And sorry if derailing your thread, Chewielewis.
Oh, I watched with the volume turned way down, so it sounded like the regular force choke noise. Good idea though! Maybe it’s a bit loud?
I think there’d be too many expectations from a lot of people that’d potentially ruin the films whichever way they go.
I’d be all in for more personal stories set during the Clone War, I think it’d really do womders for that time period. We get some of it from the TV shows, but nothing actually good.
But yeah if they want to stay away from the main saga at all costs I think the old republic era is definitely the most logical pick. I really don’t want it to be a Jedi story though, I think it’d be cool to see more Rogue One-like films.
Gotta say it works because I have no idea what you changed from the original version, and it doesn’t feel rushed in the least. Great job! I say Yea.
I doubt they’ll go with anything “The Old Republic” theme. It’s a lose-lose situation.

About “General Skywalker.” That title is nowhere in the films and, while it’s plausible, I just don’t see benefit in tossing it in there. It’s appropriate for Anakin to be something of “the learner” and Anakin moves along in this film as someone deeply accustomed to be something of a slave. He and Obi-Wan are both knights, but he’s certainly newer at it.
Anakin having a padawan of his own prior to Episode III never felt right to me, personally.
100% with you here. I love The Clone Wars but it never felt like a bridge between AotC and RotS to me. I’ve always imagined that it’s its own thing, in sort of a parallel universe. Clone Wars (2003), on the other hand… but enough derailing the thread.

I’m afraid I am not having any luck with removing Palpatine’s lines about the Jedi killing “all the senators” and Anakin believing the Jedi will move against the Senate. The rear channels are free of dialogue… some of the time, but not during a critical shot. The music playing at that point does not appear on the soundtrack, either. I can’t do anything further than I already have with that conversation without making a big mess out of the music. Hopefully in this version we can somewhat believe that Anakin is choosing to believe these things about the Jedi.
Do you consider using stuff from “The Ultimate Edition” of the soundtrack which can be found on YouTube? You may be able to find the isolated music for the scene you’re looking for there.
What were Mala’s additions to TAS?
And have you ever entertained the thought of releasing the new versions of the crawls with their original titles?
Hello oojason, thanks for the response. The issue seems to have gone away, thank you. I ended up forgetting about it because I didn’t edit any posts after the one mentioned in the first post of this thread. But it’s all good now. Once again thanks, I’ll let you know if the issue comes back.
I’m with Hal on this one. I think it’s clear they’re on a more equal footing. I also think Anakin calling Obi-Wan master strengthens “Now I am the master” in Star Wars.
I didn’t know either.
We will be seeing tons of articles/YouTube videos talking about how much Rian, Benioff & Weiss’ trilogies will be cinematic failures before they even come out (I personally am a bit skeptical of D&D myself).
Most fans on both sides of the spectrum are going to LOVE The Mandalorian. I think it’ll be so successful Fanvreau and Filoni will be given more future projects. Fans will love these two.
Sorta unrelated, but the new Avatar movies (at the very least Avatar 2) are going to perform exceptionally well at the box office despite some skepticism. General audiences will fall in love with Pandora again like they did in 2009.
I guess the skeptics haven’t seen the long lines the Pandora land Disney in Florida gets.
It’s because of how cool the ride is. I went and really enjoyed it but it wasn’t really because it’s Pandora. None of the people I went with seemed to care about that, just that the ride is pretty cool.
What other version would they have? I’m pretty sure the deleted scenes as found on the Bluray are the best quality we’re going to get for a while.
