That picture looks great for that scene. The BluRay is cast in a deep blue. It looks like you’ve cut it in such a way to favor BluRay-sourced footage, but it shouldn’t be noticeable unless someone has the original scene committed to memory.

Actually i hardly used Blu-Ray sourced footage for this scene. The shots below are the only ones i used from the blu-ray. The rest is all 4k83 sourced

STAR WARS: EP VI -RETURN OF THE JEDI &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>NOW IN PRODUCTION</strong>
Time

FIRST PROPER CLIP FROM ROTJ:R.

Here is the first clip that has some FX work added and some editing tweaks. Although the torture of the droid at the beginning is likely to be removed in the final version, everything is pretty much as it will appear in ROTJ:R. Tweaks done to Jabba’s & Sy’s mouth, a blink now and then on the creatures ( only one is complete so far in this), re-edited the original, integrating some of the SE shots, and organising shots to sync up better with Sy’s vocals. Using the great 4k83 restorations as a basis for this, along with the blu-ray, some colour grading (which is still in progress) and some more scratch/ speckle clean up work to be done. Some FX work needs to be done on a couple of shots where i need to fix the background ( mainly the side shot of Oola from the SE’s where they shot her against a blue-screen but added a character in the background that isn’t there in the shots before or after)Sound is, as usual, a very rough temp track as the sound side of things won’t start until the visual side of the film is completed.

The B-wing shoot at the weekend went amazingly well. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for the brilliant job they did. We got all the shots needed and i can’t wait for you to see Blue Squadron in action in the final film. As a small teaser, here is a short video. The clips are randomly sequenced and not how they will appear in the film & NO dialogue ( we don;t want to spoil everything 😉 ) but you can finally get to see the pilots and the cockpit in action.

Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox? (Disney has now bought them - 14 Dec '17)

Is it just me or did a lot of fans turn against the unaltered versions once the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney was announced? Before the sale to Disney, I always heard that Lucas was evil incarnate and that the Special Editions are unwatchable, but the day that the sale to Disney was announced, I started hearing “releasing the unaltered versions would result in the discontinuation of the Special Editions” or “releasing the unaltered versions would go against the canon”.

It was around the time that TFA was in production and it was reported that they threw george’s ideas for EP7 out the window and basically cut him out of the production. The “George” fans became very vocal claiming that only “George’s vision” is canon and the Disney films will only ever be fan fiction. They pounced upon anyone daring to say they wanted the unaltered versions. They feel like they are the “true fans” and the ones upholding George’s legacy. It’s bloody ridiculous.

Anybody else hoping Ady will re-think giving Boba a “definitive death”?
Unlike the changes to SW & ESB, this is one that will force a change in the viewers EU. In the original, it’s easy to imagine Bobba surviving (as many do), but by giving him his fathers head chop ( I believe the plan is to use footage from AOTC), it’s over.
Also, if you’re a saga fan, both Boba Jong and Boba Fett will receive the exact same death.
I’m not even a big Boba Fett fan, but this idea just sits wrong with me.
I think I’ve said this before, but I’m hoping this is the reverse of “No AT-ST’s in ESB:R”.

Not sure where you got that this is the way he is going to die ( and i certainly wouldn’t reuse footage from AOTC even if i did decide to kill him off that way). A real bugbear of mine is the resurrection of dead characters( Boba surviving the Sarlaac, Maul surviving being cut in half, the Emperor returning as a damn clone etc). It cheapens their death if you just bring them back just because they are a popular character. Bringing a character back as a force ghost is a different matter entirely though as this isn’t really bringing them back to life. Boba was nothing more than a throw away character that the fans inflated his importance. I really don’t care what the EU has said or done as i have stated many times, the EU does not exist in relation to the Revisited Saga. Boba is going to die and there will be no doubt that he is dead in ROTJ:R. How this is going to happen? Well, that hasn’t been fully decided just yet.

Proof of Lucas’ revisionism in Rinzler’s making-of book?

yotsuya said:

I believe that Vader was going to be someone’s father just from his name (a Germanic version of father), but we have no concrete idea who that was going to be. There are no clues in the drafts of the original screenplay.

Darth Vader comes from “Dark Invader/ Death Invader”. It shows Lucas’ original notes in the making of ESB book and states that “Lucas’s notes that led up to the name of his villain: “Dark” and “Death” became “Darth,” and “Invader” was shortened to “Vader”—Darth Vader.” It’s just pure coincidence that Vader became the Father and the German “Vater” meaning father, are similar.

Short video showing one of the easier fixes being done for ANH:R HD, thanks to the 4k77 35mm scan. Although the video shows just one of the shots which solely uses the 4k77 scan, the others (flying droid and the Ronto in the background) use a mixture of the 4k77 combined with the Blu-Ray, which were a lot more complicated because of lots of rotoscoping and matching the grading to each element.

STAR WARS: GALAXY OF ADVENTURES - New animated shorts
Time

Trailer for the new animated shorts series “Galaxy of Adventures” debuting November 30th on the new Youtube Star Wars kids channel.

https://www.facebook.com/StarWars/videos/2072401562822611/

"Adventure awaits you and the younglings in your life in Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures, a new series of animated shorts that will introduce the classic themes, pivotal moments, and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga to the next generation.

Debuting on the all-new StarWarsKids.com and the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel on November 30, the first six shorts combine original dialogue, music, and sound effects with bold new animations, and fun and educational add-ons designed to help older fans, parents, and other mentors to welcome the kids in their lives to explore the galaxy far, far away. Additional shorts featuring fan-favorite characters will debut in December, with regular releases following in 2019.

“With Galaxy of Adventures, we wanted to craft something that allowed parents to help their kids take their first step into a much larger world whether they were ready to show their kids the films or wanted to find new ways to explore the content,” James Waugh, Lucasfilm’s vice president for franchise content and strategy, tells StarWars.com.

The dynamic animated adventures are only part of a multi-pronged initiative under the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures banner, and the beginning of a year-long celebration of Star Wars storytelling, which will culminate with the final chapter in the Skywalker saga — Star Wars Episode IX — in theaters December 2019."

Don’t get all the hate for Ivan. All Youtubers use Patreon. I understand why some might consider it an ethical issue,but its out of our control. Drop it and get over it. He’s gonna be remembered as one of the greatest fan editors because of what he’s doing to TLJ.

Why the f**k should we “drop it and get over it”? His actions could have serious repercussions for every Star Wars fan edits & fan editors. We have seen what happened when Axanar decided to personally profit from a brand they had no rights to. Disney could see what he is doing and decide to clamp down on fan edits. This could put an end to a whole section of the fan editing community through the actions of one person. Years worth of work, down the drain. And, no, not all youtubers use Patreon. NO fan genuine fan editors monetise their videos on youtube, for one, and certainly not set up a Patreon to pay themselves a wage.

4k77 released

The Dark Lord said:

A 4K version like this downsampled to 1080p will still look amazing because the source resolution is so high. I have a 75 inch LG UHD TV and a Cambridge Audio UHD media player (capable of reading this file off a USB, I might add), and 4K discs hardly look that different than 1080p to the naked eye in terms of perceiving pure resolution from a normal viewing distance. The best part of commercial UHD technology, IMO, is the expanded color gamut confered by either HDR or Dolby Vision technology, which these projects have not and cannot take advantage at present.

In my experience, there’s a barely perceptible difference in resolution between 2160p and 1080p (I have 30+ UHD 4K movies and have compared several with the 1080p releases); the most important factor is a high quality and high res source scan. That’s what I’m paying for when I buy 4K discs.

That’s because most UHD Blu-Ray releases are really 2k sources upscaled to 2160p. Compare the 1080p Blu-Ray to the UHD Blu-ray of something like Blue Planet 2 and you can really tell the difference. Plus you don;t really need a UHD media player. The LG UHDTV is able to playback the 4k77 file, and other UHD files, just fine via a usb stick/ external usb drive ( I have the 70inch HDR LG TV).

What’s up with these people selling Revisited copies on ebay and other websites acting like they are selling the “custom cover art”?? It’s actually the cover art I designed personally (downloaded from my deviantart page) for the fans to enjoy, NOT for people to be profiting off of… shame shame.

The person selling these bootlegs, Stinkytuna, has been reported hundreds of times and Ebay don’t even bother to do anything about it. It’s disgusting when you see just how many copies he has been selling. He’s earning a fortune from other peoples work.

If not all parts are available, the video is not unzipped? Send me please download link in PM.

all parts are available, there just seems to be some damaged files showing up. But there are enough par2 files to repair any damaged ones. Just download all files, including par2 files, into the same folder and then use multipar or quickpar to repair the damaged files. You can then unzip the file
