I love the OOT fan projects here - yet still want an official unaltered OT release. You too?
Time

I’m glad I don’t have to type huge treatises anymore and can just link to my article about my feelings on the subject.

I will reiterate that it’s absolutely essential that we have an official release of the OOT. As neat as the fan restorations are, there is no reason that our parents (or our kids!) shouldn’t be able to walk into a store or turn on their Roku and be able to watch the movies that changed the world.

Idk how this was done, but I gotta say it looks like the best of both worlds when it comes to the force Ghost issue. This one is obviously a bit over done, he looks like 90 rather than 45 (also wow why did they have Sebastian Shaw playing him, I know that the prequels we got were very different to how they were imagined based on what we hear and see in the OG trilogy but still, he was even older than Alec Guinness) but toned down a bit I think this would work as both Anakin being the man how died on the DSII and link back to the prequels as Shaw just doesn’t resemble him at all.

Did either of you actually read my comment? This fixes both issues and makes for a very pleasant compromise.

Its not like Shaw even looked like himself under Vader makeup so either way you’re asking the audience to draw a connection based on context rather than what the guy looks like.

Someone who was 1 when they were filming should not be in the movie.

I know this is probably a sacrilegious thing to say, but I think Hayden as Anakin’s force ghost actually makes more sense. It might sound dumb right now but let me explain.

Vader/Anakin was 46 when he died. Hayden is currently 39 and doesn’t look much different then he did in ROTS. I’m pretty sure he’s not going to suddenly look 78 in 7 years.

So even if we take into account the fact that he was good again when he died so ROTS wasn’t the last time he was on the light side of the force, it STILL makes more sense for Hayden to be the ghost.

Hayden being in the movie assumes you’ve seen the prequels, which Adywan is not assuming.

I grew up with the similarly sped up CED of Star Wars, and I recall it being subconsciously weird when I got the Faces set as a teenager.

This is pretty amusing given that you’re now the “The Originals must be The Originals!” guy.

You’re lucky I’m not going to push for “time compressed” as a required option on the official release!

I guess I should update this since it’s been… a decade?

This is just the Original Trilogy.

11SE Blu-rays (purchased used individually, some from a going-out-of-business Blockbuster Video)
ESB GOUT (used media store in 2018)
ANH GOUT (shrink-wrapped from a local grocery store in 2019)
The Digital Six Film Collection (Microsoft in 2019)
19SE UHDs (purchased individually last week)
ROTJ GOUT (eBay this week)
ANH GOUT (“fullscreen”, so I don’t have to open mine, eBay this week)

I found a “Faces” VHS set somewhere in the last decade, I have that too.

I’m planning on using a friend’s custom cases to store each 19SE UHD, 11SE BD, 04SE DVD, GOUT, and the new bonus disc.

I’d like to see the custom cases once you’re finished with them.

Here you go! https://twitter.com/doubleofive/status/1248627547857960960?s=21

Congrats on perseverance and continuously tweaking the presentation until you captured a more mainstream audience. George would be proud. (kidding!)

Contact Kaminski and see if you can get the article added to https://savestarwars.com/

I sold it to WIRED, maybe he could add a link?
