Has a theatrical cut for Episode II been constructed?
Yeah, I don’t know how long until he releases v2.0 of his theatrical ROTS, but I’m sure you can send him a PM for a link to v1.0 (unless you have a MySpleen account, in which case you can snag it from there).
Unfortunately, I screwed up heavily on myspleen. It sucks another account cannot be made on there. Thinking about it just upsets me. 😠
Schorman beat you to it a while back - I can’t find a dedicated thread for it, but it’s an offshoot of this project:
He just recently released a v2.0 of the HDTV versions, and has said he intends to release a v2.0 of his theatrical ROTS using the updated video once he finishes with some tweaks to the audio.
I never knew that was coming.
Somebody get these.
This is a project I had in mind for quite a bit. My goal for this project to make an decent high-definition preservation of Revenge of The Sith as it was seen in theaters. When the film first came out on DVD on November 1st, 2005, the original audio remained the same, but one visual alteration was made to the movie (where we had a transition from Obi-Wan in Padme’s shuttle to the Emperor arriving to pick up a badly wounded Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader from Mustafar). That transition came back around in the 2011 Blu-Ray release, but there were a few audio and visual alterations made. The Rise Of Skywalker will be coming out this December, so it’d be rather fitting if I do this project.
No sources are available for this project. I would be happy and more pleased if anyone here can send me some to start with.
The 2011 Blu-Ray release
The 2005 DVD release
The leaked workprint
I’d be interested.
I would actually be interested in seeing the original workprint of this classic war flick.
Nearly two months have passed and we could not get an HD treatment for the SLV version of this movie out there.
This will be an interesting fan-edit, considering I disliked Han’s death in the final film.
You caught my interest.
What could I possibly be upgrading?
Is there anything I can do to help? My computer ain’t exactly top-of-the-line, but I’m very passionate about this project being completed.
What could I possibly be upgrading?
Cannot wait for this HD upgrade!
I’d be interested in seeing this 4K version of Return Of The Jedi.

I’ve currently got this version uploaded onto Google Drive with the starting fanfare added from the BR and the credits have also for. It might stick out a bit, but I think it looks alright. Contrast has been changed slightly as well.
PM me for a link.
I’d like to see it.
I’ll look forward to this documentary of yours.
Which trailer are you remaking?
I was about to ask.
I was thinking one day, the original theatrical version of this movie in HD would see the light of day.
Cut L3-37 out completely since she’s simply there to make Lando look like a panasexual character, which he isn’t.
I think Harmy would be interested in this.
Not sure how, I haven’t released it yet.
Let me be more specific. I was referring to Candidate 5 of your reconstruction, not the sixth one. There must be a misunderstanding or something.
This topic has been updated.
I’ve used this preservation to recreate one of the film’s TV spots in HD. I hope it will come to your liking! 😃
There are plans to preserve all the prequel 35mm versions.
Where can I find that?
I’m curious to give it a look since I do have the original theatrical cuts of the original trilogy (the Despecialized Editions) and Episode I. In fact, I do wish somebody would do an HD version of the theatrical release. And I’ll gladly try to do one for Episode III (if somebody can provide the sources).
I believe Schorman has released one for III (a relatively simpler project).
The footage needed for AoTC isn’t available in HD, or even SD, or anything better than this cam source here. Someone would need to buy and scan a print. A lot of money for a project that most of us probably only see as something that belongs on a checklist, and not something actually meaningful to us.
If the urge to watch this movie ever strikes, I’ll live with the deleted speeder. 😃
If only somebody would ever preserve the 35mm print of the original theatrical cut of the film, then perhaps that project would be possible.
