The ultimate editorial to GL
Time
Good sentiments from the guy at JediNet - though nobody is quite sure what the content of the dvd set is going to be, in regard to the commentaries (are they?).

Having the 3 directors (Kasdan standing in for RoTJ) would seem to be proper way of doing it - though if one of the other 2 were critical of GL in some way is GL the type of bloke to allow it on 'his' set? Or would it be edited out etc? Would the other 2 be ok with that, or demand that they are shown in full or not at all?

Having the 'Lost Cut' on there too would be great - though the amount of cut scenes GL has held back from Eps 1 & 2 on their dvd releases gives me the impression that there won't be - unless GL is planning some sort of bumper uncut scenes dvd to ocme out in a few years time. More likely is that there will be more tinkering with all of the films in the next batch of whatever edition GL is going to release in a few years - OR - that he deems the unseen stuff as unnecessary or unworthy and we'll only get to see it drip fed through his pay-net Hyperspace service, a la the failed Jedi mission to the control ship in AOTC.

With less than 2 months to go GL or his staff have let specualtion build as to what is on the latest set - how long they can keep the wall of silence going for is yet to be seen - personally I think the silence tells us not to get our hopes up... there is still more tinkring to come.

Episode I-VI: Archival Editions

^ Well, at least you're in the right place if you ever feel the need to get 'em on dvd

I have often heard of the Executor Box-Set - in fact my m8 has one (tho it's still in it's wrapper and he hides it from me when I go around - prob petrified I may unwrap it or something! lol). Though I don't know much about it - apart from it goes for quite a sum on ebay and are obviously very rare.

Could you fill me in on the details and contents?

(one day someone'll do a thread with all the differnt available versions and thier formats... - that'd come in handy.)

Episode I-VI: Archival Editions
Time
die-jarjar-die - as a fellow UK'er I took great delight in seeing AOTC before our US friends and discussing all sorts of spoilers amongst other people who'd seen as well on the 'net. It's not often this happens...

It's good for a role reversal at times.


On a different matter, I love the Theatrical Version OT - and will gladly watch them over any other of Lucas' edits, though a list of further changes that possibly will be made by GL should not upset people here. GL will go on to tinker with each new home viewing format - he has done so in the past, he is doing it now and he will do so in the future.

Even after the 'Arhival Edition' or whatever they'llbe called I'm sure he'll go onto make further changes with each new passing home format - giving the fans the excuse that this was his vision and the new latest technology has only just made it possible for such and such a scene to exist...

All of which makes GL look an arse - and more of the fans will be disillusioned and join or begin thier own quest to get their preferred, or maybe even all, edits out on the latest format too.

Luckily for us, we already have a damn fine choice of dvds of the OT - and soon no doubt the quality of those will improve with the introduction of a good dual-layered dvd, and then it'll move onto the next newer format.

In the end Lucas has lost - the Theatrical Edit of the OT will be seen by an ever increasing group of people - it exist's now and it will exist for a long time after GL and many of us here have passed on.

Rik - are you gonna do the basics for an Ep3 MagnoliaFan Edit cover too? lol - watching the 2 Edits has given me a new impetus to look forward to Ep3 in the cinema - sort of given me hope that EVEN if GL doesn't get it right there is a bloke out there who can do the job, and do it very well.

Look forward to you posting the discs (if poss) from the above set too - very fine selection.

Sweet 4 disc cover btw

Rikter - those are fantastic m8, great work.

I'm SO gonna print them off for my 2 Edits - plus they'll match my 'Inksaver' OT set too!

Nice touches and praise to MagnoliaFan in the blurb too.

I havn't managed to get hold of MagnoliaFan on AIM yet - so havn't received his covers yet, but yours are damn impressive Rik.

Any news on the new MFE Ep2 subtitled disc?

I'll be eagerly keeping an eye out for his next postings (Wednesday night - US time?) - and hope he fixes the problems he has with his pc soon! lol

Is anything else known about JW-Titus?

My knowledge of SW fan novels is limited but I imagine it's not often you come across someone with writing skills and the ability of pacing a story out like that.

and these are rumours for...



Episode I: The Phantom Menace


01. The cut scene of Obi-Wan emerging, Apocolypse Now style, from the swamp after hiding from droids has been restored. He tries to navigate the forest without being noticed when a battle droid spots him. Obi-Wan ignites his lightsaber cutting the droid in two. Then two STAPs spot him and as he raises his lightsaber to deflect the attacks it shorts out forcing him to flee. Qui-Gon takes care of them and then scolds Obi-Wan for leaving his lightsaber power on and forgetting to recharge it.

02. A new scene was shot with extras during Episode III showing the people of Naboo in concentration camps.

03. The cut scene of Qui-Gon discovering the probe droid has been restored and a second CG probe droid has been added in the background to witness the attack and report it to Darth Maul.

04. A version of Across the Stars has been added to the scene between Anakin and Padme on the Naboo ship.

05. Yoda is CG.

06. Jimmy Smits shot a new Senate scene as Bail Organa during the filming of Episode III.

07. There's a new scene featuring Count Dooku talking to Qui-Gon via hologram.

08. Count Dooku now shows up at Qui-Gon's funeral. Chris Lee shot the new scene against bluescreen. He walks up to Yoda and Mace and says, "This is the final straw!" and starts to walk away. Yoda follows him and tries to talk some sense into him. Dooku then tells Yoda he will no longer serve a corrupt Senate and that he is quiting the Jedi Order. Yoda goes back to the funeral. Then he says his line, "Always two there are. No more, no less. A master and an apprentice."





Episode II: Attack of the Clones


01. The Senate cut scene has been added to the beginning of the movie.

02. The cut scene in which Padme witnesses Anakin having a nightmare about his mother aboard the refugee cruiser has been added.

03. The complete conversation between Anakin and Padme while on route to the Naboo palace has been restored.

04. The cut scenes featuring Padme's parents has been added.

05. Additional cut footage has been restored to the love pledge scene between Anakin and Padme. They kiss more and Anakin makes his own pledge.

06. More cut footage of the duel has been restored.

07. Jar Jar Binks has been added to the group of leaders witnessing the stormtroopers leaving for battle on Coruscant. Jar Jar has a sad look on his face after realizing the ramifications of his actions.

08. The necklace that Anakin made for Padme in The Phantom Menace has been added to Padme's neck during the wedding scene.

Wajas - IIRC you have to go into your Profile and 'turn on' the PM function for PMs to reach you - for some reason the default setting for PMs is 'off'.

Details of both the MagnoliaFan Edits can be found in the 1st post in this thread - both IMHO are very good and worthy Edits - certainly I found these a LOT more enjoyable and inkeeping with the OT than those of Lucas'.

Re- I hear the stories of Duff's signing being only hours away before GH decided against and to strenghthen the sqaud - it seemed like a good idea at the time. Recently ones that Shearer was only a day away from coming to us last season but Freddy Shephed vetoed it as he was worried about the Newc fans' reactions - seems that 'success and failure' are VERY fine in football these days...

GH left Rafa with a good squad and a club in a lot better shape than GH found it in - hopefully Rafa will kick it on another gear or two and we'll make a realisitic challenge for the title soon.

Wajas - a few more players would be most welcome. especially in the posiitions you mentioned. Very much looking forward to having Rafa as our manager this season (though I wasn't a GH basher either).

Very much exciting times ahead - even with that new away shirt! lol

Do you post on the forums at redandwhitekop.net or ynwa.tv?

Any luck emailing Rikter yet?
