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

February 2019 Update: Shoots & Scams-

That sucks. Sorry you have to deal with all that crap when you’re just trying to do something for yourself and the fan community. I’m more excited for this project than I am any upcoming Disney Star Wars movie. I really appreciate you sticking with it.

As long as you have this out by June I’ll be fine.

Also, not sure if Ady has answered this, but is the Imperial March being kept in the Death Star reveal, given the full march treatment of the Death Star theme in Rogue One?

I am wondering this myself. I almost feel as though “The Imperial March” should NOT be in A New Hope, perhaps with the only exception being when Vader is on the screen — the theme has been closely tied with Vader and his leadership of the fleet.

However, after Rogue One, they chose to embrace the classic Death Star 1 theme (dun, dun dun dun!) and also introduced “The Imperial Suite,” which almost seems more like an appropriate theme for the Empire in the time of Tarkin.

I would personally like to see The Imperial Suite in ANH:R HD, and keep The Imperial March out of it (with the exception, perhaps, being when Vader makes a move — maybe the lightsaber battle with Obi-Wan or when Vader hops into his TIE fighter).

By the way, here’s the theme I’m referring to (“The Imperial Suite”):

I beleive the The Imperial March is also in Solo when he is inlisting.

Since the PT won’t be relevant to OT:R, which canyon matte will be used for this shot that R2 travels through in ANH:RHD?
ANH:R

SE/Blu-ray

Theatrical

The matte for ANH:R was made to match closer to what Tatooine looked like in the PT.

Just my personal opinion, but I think the current ANH:R looks great.

I agree.

I was a kid when it came out, and I remember debating with friends that he was his father. I believed it because of Owen’s line about being afraid Luke had too much of his father in him. But there were a lot of kids you couldn’t accept it.

I’ve watched it twice but just can not find it for the life of me. But if you can find that vid on youtube about what was originally planned and what could have been, it’s really interesting. He put together a lot of info from old magazine interviews and the letters sent out to members from that old 80’s Star Wars official Fan Club.

Um, the post you are replying to is in our PM 😉 Not sure if you’re getting your web browser tabs mixed up or something??

No, I was just replying to your post.

Exitzero, did you just reply to yourself in the 3rd person? LOL

Now that you mention it, I think I had heard or read somewhere a number of years back about the same thing with GL stating 3 years had transpired between each movie which lines up with the actual time between the movies themselves releasing and probably why I misread the BBY/ABY times as I already had a preconception of the time frames.

In regards to your second post, I believe Yoda only said it in that fashion to try and impress upon Luke how unready he is to face Vader at that time.

Where in ROTJ Yoda knows he is ready now or as ready as he’ll ever be in the time they have left to defeat the Empire before all is lost, so he essentially gives the confrontation his blessing but knows as well that it will be the biggest challenge Luke will have ever faced and if he comes out of it alive and still on the light side, then he will have mastered control of his mind and emotions in the face of that massive adversity and facing the Emperor and his father of all people, essentially proving his worth to take the title of Jedi Knight (not Master mind you, but the first level of “Jedi-hood”) regardless of the time it would take under more normal circumstances and the fact that he will be the last of their kind and so needs Luke to become a Jedi to keep the flame of their order alive and pass on what he has learned. He could not do that if Yoda told him he hasn’t met the prerequisite 25 years of constant training under another Jedi and that there’s no one else left to teach him now anyway 😉

Getting off topic so I PMed a reply.

Originally, GL himself said the timespan was three years between each movie. Then, when Secrets of the Empire came out, the time between Empire & Jedi was changed to one year.

That always bothered me, as Yoda told Luke he had to stay with him to complete his training. Then Luke went off on his own and was able to do 25 years worth of Jedi training (Obi-Wan was knighted as a Jedi Knight at 25) in one year all by himself. He also tells Luke that only a fully trained Jedi can face off with Vader, then tells him in Jedi he has to confront Vader to be a Jedi Knight. I know it’s all because when Empire came out the plan was to do 6 or 9 movies, and then Lucas had to wrap it all up in one move.

There’s a great video on Youtube where a guy tracks down all the old articles about Star Wars being a 9 or 12 movie run. There are quotes with Lucas and Gary Kurtz talking about Luke’s sister being a completely different person on the other side of the galaxy. She was to get her own trilogy and then Luke and his newfound sister would team up to fight the Emperor. There was also talk of Luke killing Vader and taking his place, and his sister would bring him back to the light side. It’s a very interesting video if you can track it down.

Ah yes, you’re all correct actually. I misread an article listing all BBY/ABY for each movie, re-checking it I can see now it is indeed 1 year between TESB and ROTJ (just based on the BBY):

0 BBY - ANH
3 ABY - TESB
4 ABY - ROTJ

So yeah, 3-4 years is getting a bit into the realm of an unbelievable time frame. Not impossible but definitely hard to believe by our standards even in a fictional universe as it still draws understanding from parallels and familiarity to ours.

In saying that, it’s still never bothered me personally as I never knew till looking at that article what the time lapses / jumps actually were and both sequels in the OT make you feel like a sufficient amount of time has passed to account for what has changed with our characters and the story.

Didn’t know if any of he techniques utilized in this Star Destroyer Model video would be useful-interesting nonetheless-

The no Ranto shot looks awesome!

I too got a kick out of noticing the Battle Droid in the sandcrawler. I figure those little buggers were everywhere during the clone Wars, not a stretch that one would end up on Tatooine. I hate to see him go.

Roger, Roger.

Any chances you will update planet by Death Star to match RO’s Scarif? Maybe debri from the two star destroyers. Just a thought.

Why update planet below Death Star in ANH:R to match Rogue One’s Scarif?

Scarif is not the planet where the Death Star was built.

Why would the Death Star go back to where it was built? Tarkin’s roundtable meeting is like two days after the battle of Sharif.

I was watching Harmy’s Despecialized Star Wars, and noticed how much Luke and Leia’s echo in the chasm really boomed with the surround sound. I usually watch Revisted, as that is my definitive version of the film, and didn’t remember that. Comparing the echo to both Despecialized and Silver Screen editions, it seems Revisited’s echo is hushed. Was that a deliberate choice, or something that can be reevaluated with the 720p edit?

I used the 2004 mix as a basis. The echo effect was altered a few times in previous mixes and they went with a more natural one for the SE. I won’t be altering that for the HD version as i will be using the DTS 6.1 track from the blu-rays

dragon said:

Adywan just a minor question is this coming out this year or next year same question for return of the jedi revisited as well. I know your busy with it just curious that’s all.

There is zero chance any of them will be finished this year or even possibly next.

Awesome!
January 1st 2020 it is then!

Each official audio mix does the echo in the chasm very differently, too. Adywan’s is a heavily modified version of the 2004 DVD mix, so it’s likely that the echo in Revisited is similar to that.

The original mixes (especially the mono mix) had more of an exaggerated echo effect, while the 1997/2004/2011 mixes have more of a natural effect, to my memory. But I could be mistaken, and Ady might have actually taken the echo effects from a different mix that the 2004. I’d have to compare all the different mixes to be sure which his is closest to.

the echo was exaggerated, but it sounded great coming out of the rear speakers.

Look who is coming back in the HD version of ANH:R…

Using a mixture of the 4k77 release and the official blu-ray, along with addition restoration i did to the 4k77, removing all remaining film damage, Wolfman has now been restored back in the 2 shots they replaced him in the SE’s

And I went ahead and threw away Lak Sivrak’s action figure after he was no longer canon.

I just had this thought when I was watching ANH:R last night. I understand that you are going to be changing some things between the current form of ANH:R and what will become ANH:R HD. Now what follows isn’t supposed to be inflammatory it was just a thought that I found interesting.

Would you consider the fact that you are tweaking with your version of ANH:R to be almost akin to the way Lucas tweaked with the standard ANH. We’re coming upon the same dilemma where the original ANH:R will not be available in an HD format, just like the OUT is not available in HD formats. You changed your mind about some decisions that were made and want this new HD version to be the definitive version of the films, yet there are people (like me) that would just like to see the current ANH:R but in HD.

I’m not sure this equates completely, but I feel like you could understand Lucas’s mindset on why the Special Editions exist in the first place. I also recall a popular argument for why the Special Editions are bad is because they supersede the Original Versions. That same thing is now going to happen with ANH:R. I’m not trying to be accusatory, I just thought this was something as a community that we could discuss.

What is Adywan tweaking in the ANH:R HD version that you don’t think you’ll like?
