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

Word to the Spookies!

Star Wars Holiday Special - Zion Hybrid v2
Time

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.

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.

The Classic Edits DVD Covers
Time

Hey there gang!

So, I have updated all of my DVD covers for the original round of fan edits I recently uploaded to zippyshare. I noticed the covers included were not up to par so with a fresh CS5 install and hours of scouring backup drive I found my twenty years old PSD files!

The Phantom Re-Edit 1.2 - Unknown

The Phantom Edit I.I - The Phantom Editor

The Phantom Edit I.II - The Phantom Editor

Attack of the Phantom II.I - The Phantom Editor

The Phantom’s New Hope - The Pagana Edit

And a teaser cover for a future upload…

DeEd has the necessary Navajo subs to accompany the dub, and you can download the subs separately in Project Threepio (Navajo’s not listed as a supported language because we don’t have complete-movie Navajo subs for the whole trilogy, but we do have the portion that accompanies the dub)

Yep, this is what I used but it is no substitute for the actual discs.

The "Lost Cut" Of ANH
Time

Votss said:

In 1977, I clearly remember seeing ANH in a theatre within the first two weeks of its release and the deleted scenes(lost cut) were included in the film. I was 11 years old and saw it twice at the theater. The first time I saw it I clearly remember Luke looking up at a sparkling space battle. Luke speeds past a woman yelling. The Toshi station scene and how dimly lit it was. I remember being sort of confused by these scenes and the pace of the film and it’s connection to the robots in the opening. I always thought that I was imagining all theses memories until the deleted scenes were finally released. The Biggs meeting and Aunt Beru and the pouring of the blue milk was all there. The cantina was weird and stranger. Vader climbed into a fighter near the end and yells as he is spinning away.
The second time I saw ANH, the scenes were cut and film is as we all know it today. I’ve been searching for others who have seen a rough version also and finding more reports that I’m not alone.
The only thing I can figure is that within the first two weeks of distribution the studios released rougher cuts of the 70mm film and these were shown to the public just to get the film out on schedule… within a few short weeks a newer trimmed down distributed film with final cuts was made and theaters were asked to return rough films and/or make cuts to match final release since film copies were expensive and easier to do if certain theaters had the capability… all I know is what I clearly remember, and somewhere other than George’s safe a rough cut still exists… in color and with sound. On a final note, A lot of Star Wars fans back in 77 brought tape recording equipment into shows and made audio tapes. These tapes may prove to be the final answer… that some of us were able to witness something special! The lost rough theatrical release.

Your 100% right it happened, no I’m kidding.

This is referred to as the Mandela Effect. I think your personal memory is due to multiple stacked convoluted memories of the movie, radio dramas, the books, and the various making of’s. We all experience these types of memories to various degrees and the longer ago it was and the more you’ve retold the story the more “real” these jumbled memories become.

This is a fascinating subject all around but… Unless you are now in your 70-80’s and were in your mid to late twenties in 1976/77 oh and a select member of the film making elite who actually saw a rough cut without score and parts in black and white. I must call poodoo on this.

Either that OR you really are from an alternate dimension! And somehow you’ve became stuck in our apparently lacking one!
