I dont think its the technical issue that holds Ady back on this one, he already remixed Vader voice quite considerably as well as enhancing many other sounds and audio. It definetly have nothing to do with the PT, if it ties them together by chance then thats a bonus but its not a priority. And its not a “fix” either its just an alternative, Vader responds “Obi-Wan once thought as you do” after Luke asks him to come with him. That is pretty much everything Obi-Wan does in the prequels, and its also what we learn about the past through the OT. Although Obi-Wan gives up when Vader is completely turned, the “once” moment does not refer to a week, a month, a year ago.
I tried my best to objectively answer why the scene will probably not be added in regards to the revisited formats and purpose so far, I wasnt really adressing the content itself.
I have never seen Adywan address these scenes in any way, apart from *may still be adding “you’re Mother once thought as you do” line instead of the original “Obi-Wan.
From my impression of the 2 other revisited movies and Adywan’s posts I doubt he completely changes the scenes he doesnt have a problem with, the ones listed at page 1, facebook page and/or wordpress page. The emperor, Vader and Luke scenes are not adressed and I have never seen anyone nor Adywan really wanting to change these. As you can see the changes are mostly visual changes, removal of the most ridiculous/offensive/unnecessary/excessive original & special scenes, and very few changes in dialouge in general, and the few which are being made are “fixing” obvious errors/continuity without altering the original dialouge too much.
Agree they are important.
The beginning would feel too much of a drag with just Jabba. It already does to me and many more. We have already seen the Stardestroyers,a Death Star, most characters comes to a hault in develpoment, and even reworked battle scenes can only add so much extra excitement. Pluss they are amazing standalone scenes, the emperor carry very much of the weaker saga movies.
I have always replaced JJB with a Mon Calamarian in my head.
Restore the deleted scene of Darth Vader in his meditation chamber calling out to Luke as he constructs his new green lightsaber. The scene seamlessly connects the opening Death Star sequence with the Tatooine rescue sequence, which seem disconnected in the theatrical version.
Improve the pacing in the Tatooine rescue sequence. Cut the droid torture scene. Cut the song and dance routine. Cut the dancer falling through the trap door. Cut Leia haggling with Jabba over the bounty for Chewbacca. Cut the thermal detonator. Cut Leia bumping into wind chimes. Cut C-3PO warning Luke that he is standing upon a trap door. Cut the herd of Banthas. Cut the barge sailing over the sand. In general, trim the first act as much as possible.
Restore the deleted footage of Yoda confessing, “Obi-Wan would have told you long ago, had I let him.”
I didn’t realize that these scenes existed, I’m going to have to find them. They sound really interesting.
We should all try to help this Project:
If we could get the best avaible quailty scenes at all time, restored many times as time and technology improves. We could all then hopefully one day be able to cut in the scenes we personally miss into whatever Version/edit we enjoy to get the ultimate definitive personal edition we like.
