New Star Wars comics
Time

Aye, a little strange that we’re seeing this much anticipated story appear in comic form - though maybe (hopefully) there’ll be a few novels to come on the Knights Of Ren after TROS has aired?

Very much looking forward to the comic though too 😃

 


 

‘Covers For Marvel’s The Rise of Skywalker: Allegiance Mini-Series Revealed’:-

As the cover contains a couple of new previously unseen characters for this TROS comic, (whether they’ll just be in the comic - or the TROS film too I don’t know…) so I’ll put the image, and link to the article, in a spoiler tag…

(you have the option on whether to click it or not… you must resist… you must resist… 😉 )

No Blu-ray? Seems archaic to only release something on DVD.

Hopefully we’ll see details of a blu ray soon enough…

Though the cynic in me thinks whilst they’ll release this on DVD… yet for those that want it in HD they’ll have to cough up the $3 per episode on Amazon Prime Video - or the $40 for the whole season - or fork out for the coming Disney+ service.
 

I do hope we see a blu ray soon.

What the hell was ForceGhostRecon ban for? He was making some of the best edits on this site…

As stated in an edit to the opening post of this thread (and also in other opening posts of FGR’s other Fan Edit threads):-

It came to the moderators attention that ForceGhostRecon was a previously banned member on this site - to which FGR has himself admitted.

STAR WARS: EP IV 2004 <strong>REVISITED</strong> ADYWAN *<em>720p HD VERSION NOW IN PRODUCTION</em>
Time

Well said, Mala 👍
 

We can also help adywan by donating - and as he’s a top bloke - maybe also receive something in return…

(from adywan’s Return Of The Jedi: Revisited thread)

FINAL EVER LARGE DONATION DRIVE FOR MATERIALS NEEDED FOR ROTJ:R & ANH:RHD AND PRIZE DRAW

The final ever large donation drive is now on.

Now that the B-Wing Pilot shoot is well and truly out of the way and the colour grading is complete on ANH & past the halfway stage for ROTJ, I can now get down to work on all the models, miniature sets, costumes, props etc needed for theses edits. Along with creating those, there is also the Endor Rebels shoot that needs things creating for it (costumes, props etc). So it’s full steam ahead now Sadly having to start from scratch for the HD version of ANH is a bit of a pain, but at least not many things need creating for that edit. But it’s a different matter with ROTJ.

Over the next week or so I will be making posts going into detail about some of the changes/ fixes planned for ROTJ:R. One of the things that really need replacing with miniatures is the Millennium Falcon mattes in the Home One hangar (along with the whole hangar matte).

As I will now be working at a scale of at least 1/48, these are going to be a LOT bigger than what I created for ESB:R, but the extra detail is needed when working with more close-up shots.

After being able to sell a few of the items that I put up for grabs recently and with money I can personally put into it, the needed target for the donation drive is just over £4000

So what will the money be used for? Well every penny donated does directly to material only. No one will ever profit from these edits. So , for example, things like catering and the travelling expenses for the B-wing live action shoot, came out of our own pockets and no donations were used. Things I will need to purchase is LOTS of Silicone, resin, paints, glue, MDF and other wood materials, amongst many other things. Doing these donations drive enables me to purchase materials at bulk, instead of being able to only purchase small amounts when I have available funds. This save a Hell of a lot of money on postage costs alone. As I usually purchase the silicone/ resin materials from the same place, this can save hundreds on postage and bulk buying discounts.

Then there is something that is really needed: Drive space. As you can see in the pictured below, space is becoming limited. With my 2 6TB External hard drives used up containing the backup of all the files for ESB:R, I need to get a few more for the backups of ANH:RHD & ROTJ:R as I go along. Then there is the space needed to create these edits. So I need to replace the smaller internal hard drives with newer. Much larger ones. Doing two edits in HD at once really eats up space.

As this is the final large donation drive we will ever be doing , the prize for the donation draw is the biggest one we have given away yet.
One lucky winner will receive one of the full costumes that was created for the B-wing Pilot shoot for ROTJ:R

The costume consists of pilot vest, belt, gloves, a genuine ANH-H-15 pilot cap (modified slightly with softer ear covers and to fit both larger and smaller head sizes) , Flight Suit, chest plate and pilot helmet. The pilot helmet was created for our Blue Two pilot, but sadly we lost Jen due to a scheduling conflict , so this is the only thing that wasn’t used and also has the orange visor that was created as a test to see how the dying process would look. The only things missing from being a full suit are the Gaiters , boots and the rectangular box that goes on the belt. These are things that didn’t need creating as they wouldn’t be seen on screen, so a waste of money.

Because I had to make various sizes of the flight suit for the shoot, the winner will have a choice of sizes: S, M, L, XL & XXL. The vest, belt and ejection straps are all adjustable so will fit most sizes.

There will be 2 runners up prizes . Each will receive one of the B-Wing chest boxes used in the shoot.

For each donation of £10, you will receive a ticket that will go into the final draw. The more tickets, the better the chance. If you donate on more than one occasion, then the total you donate will be added up and divided by ten to give your ticket amount.

So how can you donate?

Well there’s a new way of donating thanks to Paypal’s new Money Pool. If donating with GBP, then Paypal doesn’t take any fees from the amount, unlike going through the donation button as before. So if you can donate using GBP then that would be a great help. But if you can’t then this way they still don’t take a huge amount off for their conversion fees. You can donate through the Money Pool using this link:

https://paypal.me/pools/c/8fZda4Wcai
If you can’t for some reason donate through this link then you can still donate by clicking on one of the Paypal donate buttons on the right hand side of the Revisited Wordpress page here:

https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/
When donating can you please include your name soi I can add you to the end credits for ROTJ:R please.

Once the donation target has been reached, then it will closed. The prize draw will take place shortly after than and winners notified straight after

Thank you to all who have supported me over all these years.

P.S. Don;t worry if the Money Pool page says “Penny Sayce”. The Paypal account is in my wifes name and i took it over but i am unable to alter the account name

It is indeed good news mate - and something that is being already discussed in this thread 😃:-

There are also a couple of other threads re recent showings of Star Wars on the big screen too (one was a 2006 DVD GOUT showing, the other has unfortunately just been changed to a showing of the SE, I think) - in the General Star Wars Discussion section.

Prequels: The anti-cheese edits
Time

Hi Ricardo,

Welcome to the site.

Firstly, paying or offering to pay to buy a project or fan edit on here (and many, many other similar places) is a massive ‘no’.

Secondly, you may have better luck searching for Star Wars Fan Edits in the Star Wars Fan Edit section of the site. It shouldn’t require relentless searching to find… 😉
 

As you are new to the OriginalTrilogy•com the following info may be of some assistance - please take the time to read through these - especially the Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ section…

 
Firstly, the About and Help sections may be of interest to you regarding this site and what the OriginalTrilogy•com is about.

Secondly, the ’How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread should also hopefully be of some help as to many of the functions of the site, along with other related info as well.

Thirdly, the Announcements Section - including Site Rules & Guidelines, Fan Edit & Preservation Rules & FAQ, as well info for Signatures, Linking Policy for Downloads, and Plot Spoiler Policy (and much more) that may be of use too.

If you are having any issues with the site, have a question, an idea to improve the site, or would like to give some feedback - then these can be done in the Feedback Forum and General Assistance sections.

There are also several Index Threads pinned at the top of many respective sections of the OT•com - which may help members find various topics of discussion, fan edits, preservations and other projects etc.

’An OriginalTrilogy.com timeline thread - a history of the site and why & how it came to be…’ chronicles both the history of this site & also it’s continuing evolution.

The ’Complete Comparison of Special Edition Visual Changes’ thread by doubleofive contains many sources of information as to the numerous changes made to the Original Trilogy films over time - as well as serving as an insightful and comprehensive discussion thread on the subject.

Finally, the ’George Lucas: Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist…' thread attempts to highlight and catalogue some of the revisionism, altering of history and contradictory claims by George Lucas / Lucasfilm as to the formation, planning and history of the Star Wars films and universe therein.
 

Thank you.
 

edit: moved to the ‘Star Wars Fan Edits & Other Projects’ section.

Last movie seen
Time

Yesterday.

Trailer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uqvgPm8U4c

A surprisingly enjoyable light-hearted rom-com from Danny Boyle & Richard Curtis. I don’t usual like much of Curtis rom-com sugar schmaltz or his usual portrayal of the UK - though think Boyle may have had input to remedy this (for me, anyway).

The film sped through it’s 2 hour run-time - obviously helped by a boss soundtrack, some decent jokes at the expense of some in the music industry, and some great chemistry and performances from the two leads. (with also by a surprisingly decent Ed Sheeran!)

It does skip over the allure/magic of the performances of Fab Four themselves - as well as the era they were in - and instead concentrates on the songs, though are very ably performed by the effortlessly likable Himesh Patel.

Everyone, literally everyone, in the cinema where I watched it stayed to the end of the credits - a song we’ve all heard countless times before played throughout… probably due to it sounding SO brilliant in the cinema surrounding.

A really likable feel-good film, and one I’d happily watch again (hopefully with more deleted scenes/content in the blu ray).

MAJOR SPOILER

The scene with John… man, that was hard to take in and absorb; I knew it was coming, it was done well, wasn’t sugary (in a Richard Curtis style), it was poignant and had impact on the plot/film itself - though I just wish it had been slightly longer… and maybe had referenced George, Paul & Ringo too.

4 woofs from a possible 5.

STAR WARS: GALAXY OF ADVENTURES - New animated shorts
Time

My nephews love these animated shorts - they haven’t seen ‘Boba - Bounty Hunter’ and the ‘Jedi vs Sith - The Skywalker Saga’ as yet - though I imagine they’ll be watching them on repeat a few times like they have the previous episodes.

That ‘Jedi vs. Sith - The Skywalker Saga’ episode… very nicely done, indeed.

 

I’m with you Tobar - an interview with the team would be most welcome - as would more episodes outside the main Saga…
