The Usual <strong>Sequel Trilogy</strong> Radical Redux Ideas Thread - * <strong>TROS SPOILERS WITHIN</strong> *
Time

The New Republic should be a liberated but fractured galaxy. The Rebel Alliance successfully freed the entire galaxy by defeating the Empire. After the defeat of the Empire, it’s unlikely the entire galaxy would willingly unite under a single government again no matter how democratic and especially without the Jedi. It was the galaxy’s unification that allowed the Empire to form in the first place.

If the Empire in the OT is looked at as Nazi’s that rose to power, then the First Order in the ST should be a group of Neo-Nazis that formed from the survivors of the Empire who believe in the use of the dark side of the force, the same way the resistance believe in the force.

  1. Kylo isn’t a Sith. Or at least he doesn’t know he is? Unclear.

He can use the dark side of the force. That declares him a Sith, but they shouldn’t use that word in the ST or PT. The word Sith was never used in the OT.

It should be a rule that if you join with the dark side of the force it is your destiny to be killed.

What some people don’t realize with Lynch is how close he came. He was actually Lucas’s number one choice ahead of Marquand but ended up pulling out.

Looking at Dune (1984) what happened with him on that film could’ve happened with ROTJ: no artistic control, no final cut priviledge, and pressure from Lucas to “do it this way”.

I’m with Gary Kurtz in that the DSII and going back to Tatooine were too derivative to ANH. I also believe that like him the ending should’ve been bittersweet with the Rebels winning but with heavy casualties and few survivors (just like in the Battle of Yavin it didn’t have everyone making it afterwards for a happier ending).

About the title: since it was originally Revenge of the Jedi, it never was about Vader.

According to the Empire of Dreams doc, it was originally Return, but when a producer said it was a weak title, George changed it to Revenge, before deciding to change it back to Return saying “a Jedi doesn’t take revenge.” Which is true, not only in “the Jedi ways”, but in the film itself. There is no Jedi who takes revenge, but there is a Jedi who returns…

I dunno if mine is the intended meaning of the title or not, but I think my reasoning is sound, I’ve seen nothing that negates my idea & I’m yet to see a better explanation.
Luke bringing Annikin back is really what the story in this movie is about, so wouldn’t that be what the title is referring to?

I’m interested in everyone’s thoughts. What do you think the title means?

I always thought the title referred to Luke. With Yoda and Obi-wan gone and Vader being with the dark side, Luke was the only one left and with his training completed the Jedi were now back with him being it. The title couldn’t refer to Anakin because he dies at the end. If he lived then it’d be a different story.

Star Wars Prequels 35mm 4K Filmized Editions by Emanswfan

Here’s another one.

Basically all these are this: HDR to LOG conversion, Custom LOG to Kodak 2283 LUT (previously built for TPM Blu-ray based originally intended for LOG footage converted from SDR), AI Sharpen, Film Grain

I still need to tweak the HDR to LOG conversion to better take advantage of the enhanced dynamic range and bit depth, same applies to the KODAK 2283 LUT. AI Sharpen settings have to be tweaked shot by shot. Film grain settings just basic right now, needs more tweaking.

That looks fantastic!

Could you show a comparison of that shot with the original on framecompare to really show the difference?

Apologies if anyone else commented on this previously, but I wonder if LFL/Disney intend to sit on the unreleased footage from Ep. IV etc. and the OT editions until the 50th anniversary of Star Wars?

It’s a horrible thought, but maybe they are already thinking ahead to 2027?

That’s when the 8K versions will be released so probably.

Also besides Greedo saying “Ma Klounkee” and a new sky on Tatooine, what are the other new changes done for the 19SE?

doubleofive did a trilogy of articles on the changes for the 2019 SE / Disney+ version of the Original Trilogy on ‘The Digital Bits’ website. They are linked below, along with some changes yotsuya has also found:-

Changes to the Disney+ 2019 SE of the Original Trilogy
 

and also in the 1st post of doubleofive’s fantastic Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes thread in the ‘Theatrical Cuts vs. Subsequent Releases’ forum; with more info on the various changes, including the 2019 SE, such as 13las’ great videos too.

doubleofive’s site - https://starwarsviscomp.wordpress.com, and his SWVC twitter - https://twitter.com/StarWarsVisComp are well worth a look at too.

So many new changes for the OT, but are there any new changes for the PT? If not, I’d find that interesting.
