Shoot me a Pm of this please. I need it for a trailer.

You could instead simply follow the instructions from the project creator on how to acquire this…

That guy with no name said:

if you want it pm me…


If you haven’t done so already it is probably a good time to read through the About, Help, Welcome To The OT•com, ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy•com, and I have found a Fan Edit / Preservation I am interested in - but don’t know how to get / acquire / download it? threads / sections of the site… and take the time to look around to see how this place works - and doesn’t - before posting.

<strong>The Book Of Boba Fett</strong> (live action series) - a general discussion thread - * <strong>SPOILERS</strong> *

An intriguing article from the New York Times…

Boba Fett, Intergalactic Man of Mystery’:-

How did this fearsome “Star Wars” bounty hunter go from a peripheral player to the star of “The Book of Boba Fett”? He used the support of fans — and a little brute force.

Holiday Special - &quot;The Story of the Faithful Wookiee&quot; - dubbed in Spanish (Released)

Hi MasterKal,

There are a few versions of “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee” still up up on YouTube - so may be worth posting it on there too.

Or on other similar video sites such as dailymotion, vimeo, veoh, utreon, or metacafe etc.

It may also be worth putting it on a GoogleDrive or on Mega too.

Good luck with it, mate.


Edit: I think I misunderstood your post - sorry MasterKal. The Star Wars Preservation forum is a good place for this 👍

Hey could you PM me the link to the torrent? Thanks for all the work on this.

Guys, c’mon… DragoonClawNZ posted a request for everyone to send him a PM… literally in the post or two above yours:-

DragoonClawNZ said:

please PM me instead of posting on here.

Or read the thread title! 👍

Original Star Wars logo font?

I think it is Dan Perri’s own custom work. There is a little more on it, with some ideas on what the font may consist of, in the link below:-

There may also be some more additional info on it in the ‘Star Wars font, crawl & logo information’ category of the An Index & Help Thread for Case Covers, Disc Labels, and Fan Art thread. 👍

What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?

Anakin Starkiller said:


Kindly knock it off.


CarboniteSolo said:

A Disney+ series 8-10 episodes 40+ minutes long per episode.

A young Leia (around 12), and Bail Organa (before Jimmy Smits gets any older) Let’s explore Alderaan some, let’s see Leia’s Alderaan training. Clearly she’s had some weapons training (into the garbage chute, Flyboy!)

Can she pilot a ship like Anakin? Does she have those quick reflexes that force users have?

Does Yoda try to contact her? Does Obi-wan try to contact her? A Ewan McGregor cameo or voice over.

Maybe Leia’s dreams are visions of Yoda/Kenobi, or of far away places and she doesn’t understand them.

You could have Leia having nightmares about Vader, but it’s just a dark shadowy figure. She could also see images of her mother, bittersweet moments.

The droids with C-3P0 in a few episodes, but mostly R2-D2.

Mon Mothma could arrive to visit Bail Organa

Let’s have an adventure on Alderaan, let’s get to know the planet before it explodes.

These are just some of the things they could explore, just to have an idea

Would anyone like something like this?


Not for me mate - however it’d sound like something decent as an animated anthology series, in a half-hour ‘Galaxy of Adventures’ style. Revisiting Leia across differing times or events of her life, maybe? It’d certainly be appealing to see more of Alderaan, how Leia becomes part of the fledging Rebellion, and the events you mentioned too.

I'll never understand the attitude of people who oppose the release of the unaltered original trilogy.

The 'Naysayer Guide’ by people who DON’T want an official unaltered theatrical release of the Original Trilogy

^ an OriginalTrilogy•com info & discussion thread cataloguing some of the oft-repeated claims, statements & comments made by some people who seemingly have issues with an official release of the unaltered theatrical version of the Original Trilogy being available - or even with fans simply asking for such a release.

The thread also hopefully includes some… clear, concise, informative, and reasoned replies.


2023 Edit…

Kellythatsit & Juno Eclipse’s posts in the ‘A topic that might upset the entire forum; (I’m sorry)’ thread are also well worth a read.

^ Especially for those not around at the time of the ‘fan purges’ of the early-mid 2000’s, or are unfamiliar with the censorship, threats, bans, and also death threats and abuse that fans of the unaltered theatrical cuts endured for simply wanting to talk about these original versions on certain fan forums. Or even for simply talking about issues with the various Special Editions over time, alterations made to the Original Trilogy films to ‘fit better’ with the Prequels, or Lucas’ re-writing and altering of Star Wars history. As well as the welcome influx of censored and purged fans joining this and other similar forums as a result.

That is before we get into the unfortunate continuation of such abuse and threats, since aimed at fan preservationists and fan editors on here - from our early days online - right through to 2021 2022. Similar abuse and death threats also aimed at people highlighting Marcia Lucas’ role in Star Wars history - notably in promoting the recent Icons Uncovered documentary, or for perceived sleights at George Lucas made to Alexandre Philippe for making of his The People vs. George Lucas program. To Jamie Benning for his Star Wars Begins filmumentary, and adywan for his Star Wars Revisited Edits. Even to myself for the apparent “Lucas hating & lying bullshit” of the George Lucas: Star Wars Creator, Unreliable Narrator & Time Travelling Revisionist info thread.

There are unfortunately a number of others on the OT•com over the years who have been on the receiving end of abuse and threats too - I won’t list them, as unlike the people listed above, they haven’t publicly disclosed these threats (other than to the site staff/authorities). Yet it is important to highlight that such abuse, attempted manipulation, and serious threats do still occur.


The ‘Fandom’ section of An Index & Help Thread for Original Trilogy Discussion may also be of interest / for further reading.

^ Plus the ‘Other websites / communities issues with the OT•com, the Original Trilogy, or the unaltered theatrical cuts’ section.

Guide to Star Wars Documentaries and Special Features

An Original Trilogy era documentary, not seen since its TV debut back in 1983, and very much worth a mention in here is…

“Bilder aus Amerika” - The Making of Return of the Jedi (1983) (Released)

Corellian Sailor and his friend did a top job with the restoring and remastering of this - and also with the English subtitles too. 👍

Question regarding how to properly direct people where to find a fanedit

Yes mate - that is pretty much it. 👍

Though if you could, please link to fanedit•info instead of (we’d prefer no actual links to other sites of that type appearing on here site) - thank you.

Some information on what links can and can’t be posted on here can be found in the Fan Edit / Preservation Forum Rules and FAQ thread, see ‘FAQ No. 9’.

I thought it was a link to a video from the edit of the film! Instead it’s poop and Fard😂😂😂

Wrong thread?

I think King goal is referring to the video linked in GLogus’ post here:-

A Guide to The Last Jedi (for the Star Wars Fan Base)’ - a 38 minute video at the Nerrel youtube channel.

LEC games: X-Wing, TIE Fighter...

In case folks have it seen it, be sure to check out X-Wing Alliance Upgrade Project:

This below looks pretty decent - and may be of interest for some of us old skool gamers…

'TFTC: Version 1.2 Released!:- - a 6 minute video at the Angel youtube channel.

Useful info can be found in the video description 👍

Guys I need your help.😔😔😔 (How do I change my username?)

King goal said:

How do I change my username? It doesn’t say but I tried finding it. Please help.

I’ve moved this from ‘Star Wars Fan Edits’ into ‘General Assistance’.

The ‘How do I change my username on here…?’ section of the ‘How do I do this?’ on the; some info & answers + member FAQs thread, in General Assistance, should give you all the information you are looking for.


Rogue One * <em>Spoilers</em> * Thread

John Knoll discusses technology and innovation on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’:-

ILM’s Publicity Group sits down with John Knoll to discuss the film’s five-year anniversary.


I loved the blend of CGI, real sets, and even kitbashing they used for the film…

Plus the fact there is still a decent model shop at ILM. As a kid it was so cool to know the film-makers were using the same models available to us in toy and model shops. (Obviously they were just a little bit better than us kids - and probably didn’t glue their fingers together, or tiny bits of kit to their fingers - as much as we did!)



greigfraser_dp (Rogue One’s director of photography):-

“I can’t believe it’s been five years since #RogueOne was released. What a dream it was for me to play in the @StarWars universe with our fearless Red Leader, #GarethEdwards. I went back and found some hair / makeup / costume and lighting tests we did in the early days, as well as some iPhone snaps. Enjoy!! @lucasfilm @ilmvfx”:- (with 10 or so images)

The Original Trilogy at the Oscars

Some quality articles there, Johan - and cool idea for a thread too. I don’t have much in the way of answers for you - though hopefully some of the [cough] more ‘mature’ or knowledgeable members on here do. 👍

The 1990 and 1992 ‘winged’ VHS box set releases both make prominent mention of the Academy Awards each film won and was nominated for (along with the box office takings) on the ‘winged’ sections…

^ from 1990.


^ from 1992.

Yet I don’t recall them being prominently mentioned (if at all) on many releases after that.


You could be right on Lucasfilm somewhat downplaying the past achievements - given these are more seemingly ‘focused’ on the Special Editions than the unaltered theatrical classic cuts… though Lucasfilm does still put up their most recent film releases for Oscar nominations - and have received a fair number too - yet as you say… no actual wins since 1984.


Gary Kurtz’ Star Wars scrapbook - available to see at the - is worth checking out as an additional source of information too.
