PM’d, this and season 2 both look fantastic. Thanks in advance.
I found the remastered BD discs through an eBay auction, and just slotted them in my complete saga set, since to my knowledge the new Prequel discs weren’t tweaked at all.
Well, aside from the new Lucasfilm logo and the 3D TPM changes…
I’d love a link as well if it’s still available, PM’d.
There was actually a small change made after the theatrical release that was in all home video editions
Whenever you see the hospital exterior earlier in the movie the cross was changed to white unlike how it was in the theatrical release where it was red colored, due to complaints from the actual red cross corporation
Interesting! Some Lucas-esque revisionism here. This film is one of my all time favorites so it’s awesome to learn new stuff like this even today.
Since ANH and ESB have some changes made from scratch such as hyperspace, Adywan’s Emperor, and a few line changes; did you ever consider adding an alternate track for ROTJ with the unused music cue of Luke and Obi-Wan on Dagobah?
I’m curious, what’s wrong with the home video versions which would require a scan of the 35mm?
The original/current BD heavily screwed up the color timing and contrast, reminds me of The Matrix’s original BD in a way.
I assume they used the 2.1 transfer as a base, as the credits use the SM3 font rather than the original. Ironically, the 2007 Blu-Ray was way too “Blue.” These issues were fixed in the “Mastered in 4K” BD release in 2014, but only for that BD and the eventual 4K release. So the 2017 legacy collection uses the 2007 transfer, unfortunately.
“The dark side of the force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.” Was said in TROS.
It’s pretty interesting, seeing a film you’ve known your entire life in a completely new way. It legitimately looks like an actual film now, rather than an extended TV special.
I actually own a camera rip myself, got it from a bootleg DVD at a goodwill. It’s very blue, similar to Notelu’s copy.
Only if it has Obi-Wan’s yell from the 2011 SE.
A faithful adaptation of the Thrawn trilogy, with a few minor changes of course to fit with TFA’s time period.
These are amazing, definitely my go-to’s for the books from now on. The ambience and music from the films really do transform these into a truly magical experience.
Can’t wait for GOF!
I’d love a link to the BD50’s. They’ll do nicely with my 2020 discs. Thanks so much!
I wonder if Sony or whoever owns MJ atm, would consider a official home release at some point. It being Disney property makes it pretty unlikely though…
I’d love a link to this if it’s still available.
Adywan’s version was nice, but I’ve been looking for a reconstruction with the Cinema DTS in particular. Thanks!
Every year or so, usually whenever the mood strikes. I don’t watch them in order unless it’s with a friend, so it comes down to whichever of the three I feel like watching.
I alternate between my preservation of choice, and Revisited.
Great stuff. The trimming is smooth, the pacing is tight, and the narrative is clear. This’d be a great way to introduce TCW to my folks, as they’re not very interested in viewing all 120-something episodes haha.
Keep it up!
I’d love access to the tracker as well.
What LUT did you use, if any? It doesn’t look quite as yellow as the official BD.
I’d love a link as well, my folks aren’t interested in watching the entire series; so this would be a big help. Thanks in advance.
I watched the 1080p ver. with a friend last night who’s not really into the editing game, and coming from two nerds who didn’t really like the theatrical, we were both very impressed. Even a minor change such as a vastly improved color grade, can push your enjoyment of a film that much more. Congrats to everyone involved in making this a worthy conclusion to the “Skywalker Saga.”
The 2000 SE isn’t horrible for what it is, but leaves much to be desired on a 4K display. Hopefully Disney’ll surprise us one day, but I’m not betting on a release anytime soon.
Imo its the most engaging of the trilogy, but also the least interesting in story and especially art direction. The first half is pretty dry and confusing for a newbie, unless you tuned in for a short micro-series that aired on a kid’s network. Anakin’s turn feels like it was written in 5 minutes, too sudden and not gradual at all. Too much time was spent on the Grievous stuff as well as stupid filler stories leading up to this point. It really makes me wish TPM and most of AOTC weren’t such time-wasters. There are some standout moments that I legitimately love, but it’s not definitely not Star Wars, nor TESB.
Thanks for doing this, and to Oohteedee for D+77-80/OTD83. I was never fond of the 04/11 transfers.
Have you ever considered going back and redoing ANH and ESB with the D+ versions? It’d be nice for consistency with Jedi, though I understand not doing it.
