Speaking of which, did we ever determine what film element the unaltered GOUT crawl would’ve been scanned from?
Lucasfilm’s form response letter at the time stated that existing prints were in “bad condition” or something to that effect, but they didn’t exactly help their case by splicing in a newly transferred piece that looked just fine to me.
I’m curious if it’s a recreation after watching this video. In the GOUT the SW logo fades out sooner than it does on 4K77 and the SSE.
The star field is also less pronounced, so it could be a matter of contrast levels making it seem to fade to zero faster than it actually does.
Hmmm not sure about that. The logo does seem to disappear rather instantly on the GOUT at the 0:40 second mark.
