Goodbye
Time

It’s almost 2 AM and I haven’t slept at all tonight so I’ve been thinking about this for a while now. I’m leaving originaltrilogy and thestarwarstrilogy forums because I refuse to watch the Special Editions and even Disney won’t release the unaltered versions so I don’t have any hope anymore that they will ever be released.

George Lucas' Special Edition plans
Time

On the “One Last Time” releases, it says “the original one last time”. This implies that only ANH would have got a Special Edition. I am 99% sure I have heard other people talk about this so I am almost positive it is true. Personally, I would have preferred if George Lucas did this instead of messing with Irvin Kershner and Richard Marquand’s films, and if we had the option to watch the 1977 and 1981 versions of ANH as well, because it is beyond ridiculous to only be able to watch 1 version of a film that has multiple versions. What do you guys think?

If you had to keep one SE change…?
Time

James Earl Jones being added to the credits.

Edit: I should also mention the “A New Hope” crawl, even though it technically wasn’t an SE change because it was added in 1981. However, I strongly believe the pre-ANH version of Star Wars should be released as well because that’s the least they can do if they won’t release all of the movies in their unaltered forms, because Star Wars is the first movie in the saga, which makes it the most important.

Last theatrical screening of the pre-SE trilogy?
Time

I know about the 1985 triple feature and the 1987 screenings but I’m not sure if there was anything after that.

Here’s what I know about 70mm theatrical releases of the original trilogy

For ROTJ all that came up was its first run, I’m focusing on re-releases and special screenings after the first run to find out when the last chance to see the movies in theaters was before the Special Editions.

Info Wanted: Are there any 1997 Special Edition 4K Scans available?
Time

Also I was wondering if there is a grindhouse version of Star Wars '77 from a single source? Because the Technicolor grindhouse version has an LPP reel 1 with LD audio, and the Spanish LPP grindhouse version’s audio is not from the LPP, because otherwise it would have Spanish audio, and I’m looking for an English version.

StarWars.com article regarding opening day May 25, 1977
Time

Unfortunately no, it’s an article on starwars.com about the 32 theaters that Star Wars opened in on May 25 and information about them.

I contacted the author of the article on fromscripttodvd.com and he says he has a printout of the starwars.com article in storage somewhere.

I just like to have official sources, that’s all.

(I’m doing a project about the opening weekend of Star Wars)

http://www.fromscripttodvd.com/star_wars_a_day_long_remembered.htm

It says in this article “Fans may be interested in knowing the list is more comprehensive than a similar listing posted on the starwars.com website and the list provided to the press at the junkets promoting the “Star Wars Trilogy” DVD release.” Does anyone have the link to the “similar listing posted on the starwars.com website”?

George Lucas' Technicolor print
Time

https://savestarwars.com/technicoloribscreening.html

It is mentioned in this article that George Lucas had a Technicolor print of Star Wars made for himself and that it was used as the reference for the 1997 Special Edition colour timing. Does anyone on the forum happen to have any more information about this?

Edit: DO NOT click on the link to John Waire’s website!
