STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Looks amazing, Adywan! I only have 2 complaints:

  1. I never liked the idea of adding a third moon to the opening shot. Messing with such an iconic shot for the sake of continuity with the worst Star Wars movie doesn’t feel right to me.

  2. The rotoscoping on the shot of the Rebel trooper looks pretty rough, although it will probably look better in the final version.

JJ’s co-writer on 7 hadn’t even seen the films he was making a sequel to

You mean Lawrence Kasdan, the guy who co-wrote Empire and Jedi? I’m pretty sure he’s seen Star Wars.

JEDIT: I just realized that you were talking about Michael Arndt, although I’m pretty sure he’s seen Star Wars too.

…and Warwick Davis himself has confirmed that they used him as a kind of Yoda stand-in for one scene in TPM, walking in a long shot, and obviously it was kept in the movie, and that whole sequence with fake-Mace also, seems kind of botched together, perhaps last-minute. Been a long time since I managed to sit through the whole ending of TPM.

It seems like the entire Fake Mace scene was shot in reshoots, probably to make the ending feel less abrupt.

To be clear, I’m pointing out Mace Windus head movement only. There seems to be a slight motion blur on his head as he turns…but it looks unnatural…like the footage was slowed down.

I noticed the motion blur, but I thought it was a side effect of the YouTube compression. Thanks for pointing it out.

There’s a lot more effects shots in these movies than we realize. Most scenes have had split screens done (to manipulate actors timing and pull from multiple takes within a single shot), not to mention who knows what other sort of shenanigans. That shot has definitely been altered a good bit.

Yeah…in fact, here’s another shot I noticed years ago in AOTC (again, watch the bluray for a better look):

After Dooku says, “I’m sorry old friend” and the droids re-engage their “arm blasters”, the next shot of Mace Windu turning his head look…off. I originally thought the footage was reversed, but watching it again now, that doesn’t seem to be the case. I just think it was slowed down. Everything else seems to be at a normal speed…then again, no one else makes a sudden movement like Windu does…plus Windu easily could’ve been filmed separately.

I don’t see anything odd about that shot. I think you’re just imagining things.
