Ewok Movies and the Holiday Special in HD or Blu-Ray
Time

cebroski said:

Hello,

I found a guy selling a “1080p digitally remastered” version of the The Ewok Movies. EDIT This person has negative reviews on Better Business Bureau and on youtube which suggest to steer clear of him and his business.

On the ‘fredthebluraydog’ website.
 

I would also love to watch the Ewok movies in the highest quality possible, which I suspect would be DVD.

Question for those who have watched the films: Which version of the Ewok Movies is the highest quality? US DVD release? UK DVD release? Laserdisc?

Thanks for reading!

The DVD’s offer the best quality of them.

Well if you still have the cs6 install discs then you can probably still install it. Alternatively there is piracy… I know it’s frowned upon but since adobe doesn’t even give you the option to legally purchase encore, would pirating the software be any different than downloading despecialized or the 4k## series? I guess it’s just a moral decision.

I would be of the opinion that yes, it’s almost a preservation. But there are a few issues the older Encore is not compatible with Win7 or Win10 so you’d have to reinstall XP which is also no longer supported. I’ll load up the old back up HD to see if I still have the install files for CS6 - I hated the learning curve so I stuck with TMPGenc simple but quick and easy but my menus did lack the WOW factor.

8-Bit Original Trilogy Logo Art
Time

I recreated the forums 8-Bit Death Star logo so I could add it to the back of the cover, I was not sure which font was used as it looks like a custom font (the G is way different from the fonts I have).

It’s a layered PSD at 4954 x 1500px with a print size of 16"x5"

Link to the PSD for use by others = https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UoMNy16SX-A19oAnYP9CkSff6A8AbfND or https://mega.nz/#!3ttURa7Z!tzTHXc37o4ouMP5AEbmLyfhpNT8SzRr0ZZuog_CH6Wg

I too made my own Special Edition of the Holiday Special.
I used the “Broadcast Master” copy that’s out there and blew it up to 720p.
I gathered a few extras for the disc as well, a commentary track that I found by the B-Movie podcast as well as various clips of the cast and crew discussing making the thing as well as the commercials and the CBS promo.

When I figure out how to upload the ISO up to trackers I’ll do it.

I can upload this to the squiggly spooge if you’d like.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (Navajo Limited Edition) Preservation DVD Cover
Time

Hey there gang!

I kinda recreated the cover for the “Navajo Limited Edition” of A New Hope and as the DVD is out of print I was not able to locate an official cover other than a few snap shots on google and a youtube video review where the reviewer holds it in his hands and shows the front and back.


So without much to go on I figured it would be best to change the rear blurb and focus on the true stars of this edition.

COVER HAS BEEN CORRECTED

For the custom crawl, you may want to talk to the Krieg der Sterne Team (or at least Laserschwert). They may have some scripts or templates you can use to re-create the crawl without having to re-invent the wheel. That way you could also create a 1977-style Navajo crawl instead of an SE-style Navajo crawl, which would be more appropriate for a Despecialized version anyway, although not the same as the DVD version.

CatBus - You are brilliant! once I’m ready I sketched out the plan I’ll be doing some PM’s

If you’re interested in trying to do the Navajo Greedo subs in the 77 theatrical style, I can try to help. I did a custom font that closely matches the 77 style, but I don’t think it’d have all the needed diacritics, so some Photoshop work may be required after the root characters are done.

I gotta ask… what’s this mean?

  1. Yes, please but I need to sort out my plans and figure out whom to contact. I’ve been off the forum for so long I’m still playing catch up. Once I finalize the plan I will create a thread and contact you. THANKS!

The quality isn’t the best, but you can see the back of the Navajo DVD cover in this youtube video.
https://youtu.be/AmPCHRtbf9M
Maybe you can ask them to take a photo?

Great Idea!

[edited] I just watched the video and was able to take in the cover but after really kicking it around I decided to only somewhat recreate the cover as this has moved into an actual OOP preservation now. So a custom cover with an insert explaining this edition more fully would be more appropriate.[end editing]

In the mean time I working on recreating it and just finished the cover a few hours ago, spine and back are next once I know what they look like!

UPDATE

  1. I need to verify that further discussion of the preservation of this OOP DVD will be allowed.

  2. I also cannot find a scan or a photo of the back or spine so, I’m also working on creating a “Preservation Edition” cover that I hope will somewhat replicate the original DVD cover.

  3. I’m also planning on editing in the Diné title crawl into Harmy’s Despecialized version creating a hybrid edit, but I’ve not edited a movie in almost twenty years so I’ll need to learn how to upscale and see if my old ass software is even capable of this task. If not I’ll be after some freeware.

The Phantom Edit VHS
Time

Thatstinkyguy said:

I heard that The Phantom Edit was originally distributed on VHS tapes then DVD later on. I know the DVD exists (I remember Chris Gore in The People vs. George Lucas showing it), but I’ve never seen actual pictures of the VHS version. Does anyone have a VHS of TPE? If so, would you mind sending pictures of the front and back of the cover. And the front of the tape itself.

Thanks in advance!

I’ve never seen the art for the VHS only a few tapes with handwritten labels and I’ve never had a super scan of the official VHS to replicate the the pictured cover for the DVD. I just uploaded a cover for the DVD version in another thread.
