You think you’ll make a trailer for your Sequel edits like you did for your edits of the Prequels, Hal?

I played with the idea a couple weeks ago but found I didn’t have the right time and energy for it. For that prequel trailer I really just overlaid clips to the TFA trailer’s music. I think if I were to, I’d do something similar with another film’s trailer music. But it didn’t work out when I last sat down with the idea. Idk

You could do the same in terms of overlaying clips to the music of The Rise of Skywalker’s trailer.

The ‘Custom Special Edition’ That Almost Wasn’t, But Then Was (Released)

Well, I have included it in order to resolve the error in favor of the SE since Adywan’s Revisited was based on the same primary source. This time that’s not the case and the two didn’t really work when put next to each other, so I reverted it to the OOT version of that shot.
Fortunately the Emperor scene worked perfectly well, being in a separate environment.

Okay. Is this because Adywan’s Empire Strikes Back project was 720p? On a side note, isn’t funny how YouTube doesn’t consider that resolution to be HD anymore?

I no longer use Adywan footage save for the Emperor hologram scene.

Wait! What about the part where the Special Edition screwed up their enhanced background. After Lando betrays Han and Leia to Vader, Adywan changed the background with the existing Special Edition background for consistency.

I don’t think that was ever part of this project. If you want those kind of fixes it’s best to just watch Revisited.

No! Hal did incorporate that in his edit of The Empire Strikes Back.

The AI Voicegen stuff works very well with voices that already have effects on them, like this:

It’d be good for a Kylo modification, but not a Palpatine one.

Not to go off topic, but could someone tell me someplace else how to acquire Speech Synthesis/Voice-Cloning software and Deepfakes?

That was a celebrated film, which makes a huge difference. The worse a film is received, or the more BTS drama, the less likely deleted scenes are to be released.

Also, Star Wars, as a franchise, is able to repurpose and retcon stories across all media very easily. It’s far more likely that deleted plot elements crop up in other media.

It’s less work, more money, and less critical blowback for them to release the OT Theatrical Cuts, or to not release the deleted scenes. The amount of fans that would love the deleted scenes is just too small a number.

I suppose so, though the Prequels got a lot of really good deleted scenes released on DVD and Blu-ray, despite how much hardcore fans tore them apart too. You are correct about the reception and behind the scenes stories affecting that happening, but I still think it could happen, with it being Star Wars and all. More deleted scenes were released for the Prequels on the Blu-ray release than the original DVD releases, but it could be due to Lucasfilm being run by George Lucas at the time, and not Kathleen Kennedy. As for the dreaded OOT Trilogy release, I still think they’re contractionally obligated by George to not release them.

It still would be spending money to release things that people “already have”.

People already purchased or subscribed to Disney+. That’s where the focus is. There’s no upside to releasing deleted scenes for a maligned film, it’s either “nothing can save this film” or “the film is worse for not including these scenes!”.

There isn’t a big petition or movement like with Justice League, and even then: it would be far more lucrative to release the 4K OT Theatrical Cuts, which also has more people begging for than these deleted scenes.

I don’t really know. Avengers: Endgame had some deleted scenes released in the Extras section on Disney+ that were not featured on its Blu-ray release. Anything is possible.

Anything is possible. Rogue One and The Rise of Skywalker could see deleted scenes released, it just all depends on what Lucasfilm decides to do for the foreseeable future. It could happen once the criticism over the Sequel Trilogy has died down, so let’s hope The Mandalorian can get those folks to calm down. Fingers crossed for the deleted scenes, still.

I made a whole video on unreleased deleted scenes for all the films.

Cool! That commentary… ain’t, ain’t my best. Lol

It’s okay, once we get everything done, along with the Rey Nobody edition, we’ll all be incredibly satisfied. I also saw you listed me in the Special Thanks section. I feel really honored and proud to be credited as helping one of the best Star Wars fan editors along with Mike J. Nichols, Adywan, Harmy, etc.

AFAIK the only things we’re waiting on are jonh’s haircut for Luke and kewlfish’s crackly lightsaber (hopefully), but v1 is releasing very soon without them.

Awesome! I really can’t wait to listen to that commentary track, and I especially can’t wait until it’s on fanedit.org. Your edit of Return of the Jedi has yet to make its way up there too, Hal.

Really, the only things that need to be done to perfect the 2020 Blu-ray discs is to re-color them to match the original colors, ever so slightly (Adywan did some great work on Return of the Jedi), and add some film grain to the video. Also, going back to these once Adywan’s HD version of A New Hope and Return of the Jedi are out and do some nice changes/additions would be nice too, whenever those come out.
