Anyone else getting PMs from users with 1 post asking for links or trades for fanedit stuff and whatnot? Makes me wonder how many people they’re asking.

Hopefully nobody is giving them links - or trades to fan edits.

And if anyone is getting annoying PMs from members here with 0 posts to their name they will let the moderators know.

Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4k UHD -- 27 DISC Boxed Set -- 3/31/2020
Time

Some info for us UK’ers re the 4K releases…
 

What happened to the UK’s individual 4K Blu-ray releases of the Star Wars films? - article at The Digital Fix

^ the upshot is it seems Amazon UK may well have some sort of ‘time-limited exclusivity window’ re the recent Skywalker Saga box set releases. It would explain why the 4K release of ‘Rogue One’ has been put back / on hold in the UK - and possibly why the 4K 2019 SE ‘Skywalker Saga’ films are not currently available individually to buy.

Zavvi UK do have the individual 3-disc Steelbook releases for the OT as being available from June onwards… so hopefully there’ll also be individual releases for the various ‘Skywalker Saga’ films available around then too…

the bad thing is that as we do to introduce the palpatine scream and the sound effects!

any wizard of sound?

Here are a few examples of effectively (imo) added sfx and trailer music for reference https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gBXjXvu9bJ9TCdx9R8SNxYK6ESl8TLWT/view?usp=sharing

I like this, though with the Rey/Kylo fight I can’t help but think it should be more Duel of the Fates, whereas with the Palpatine scene it’s a shame how much it’s cut down. Maybe if there’s a way to keep jonh’s full extended scene as well as the trailer music and the sfx?

forceghostrecon will send me the sound effects, I will do a test

nice! can’t wait to see what you come up with!

A ban for being the sock of FGR?

Charles Lippincott, Star Wars advertising &amp; publicity supervisor, has passed away...
Time

‘Charles Lippincott, who was the advertising publicity supervisor for Star Wars, Alien, Flash Gordon and many others, has died from complications due to COVID-19. His wife made the announcement on Facebook….’:-
 

"I’ve been having a difficult time so it’s been hard for me to be coherent.

Charley has been in the ICU on a ventilator since Thurs night. After 48hrs, they tried removing the ventilator to see if Charley could breathe on his own. He could not. That was when I hoped for an Act of God, for the Force to flow through him, healing him and making him one with the Universe.

Charley had some kind of Covid-19 premonition that if he went to the hospital, he would probably die. At first, it frightened him, but then he became reconciled because he felt he had lived a full and rich life. Charley thought he had been blessed. He lived a good life, a full life, and was luckier than most. Oh, he wanted to continue living — there were things he still wanted to do — but he realized many of his peers were dying, and if the end came, it would be alright because he had had a full, rich life.

Earlier that Thurs — probably because the bacteria had been building, and seniors get disoriented when they have infections — Charley was happy because he thought we were waiting to go backstage at a concert. I couldn’t figure out who was playing, but he was happy because it was somebody he liked. I went to the cafeteria to get a snack, and when I got back, his eyes were closed and he was ready to sleep so I read him some fb posts. He got really angry over Ahmed’s murder and the persecution of blacks. That was my last conversation with him. Him being angry over how backwards our country still was. After that brief perk, he closed his eyes and went to sleep.

I left, then a couple of hours later, he had a heart attack, and the rest is history.

Today, my update for you is Charley’s EEG has come back flat. This means he no longer has brain activity.

I want to think his spirit has joined the 90,000 plus who have left this planet, who have entered the cosmos like Asimov’s stream of light. I think Charley would have liked that. The company of many, leaving behind their earthly bodies. He wanted to go beyond, and has done that. There are many Covid-19 deaths, and each death was a Charley to the people who loved them.

With that thought, I thank you, Bumpy"

The Empire Strikes Back - May 70 mm vs June 35 mm
Time

yotsuya said:

It seems that other than just rumors and eyewitness reports (as well as in in theater recording of the 70 mm version), we now have official word what was changed and someone could use this to make a 70 mm cut of TESB.

https://www.starwars.com/news/empire-at-40-star-wars-the-empire-strikes-back-ending-changes?

Good to see some detail on this at last… Gary Kurtz has mentioned it a few times in interviews in the early 2000’s (IIRC… Lucas’ ‘good enough’ attitude sneaking in for a 1/2 sub-standard shots for this last-minute scene towards the end of Empire - yet Kurtz wanting to ‘get it right’).

Were there any official VCDs of the One Last Time Release?
Time

Officially… not as far as I know. Unofficially… yes, of course - they were quite popular for a time especially when cheap VCD imports were a thing (cheap and easy to do online from the Far East) for a while before the 2006 OT DVD release.

The likes of Nathan Butler, Video Collector and projectcclarke would likely know a lot more about these kind of releases than me - it may be worth asking them mate.

I compared the Dolby Stereo mix of The Little Mermaid to the blu ray mix and there are instances when Eric plays his fife, there is an echo and it’s missing on the 1999, 2006 and 2013 home video releases, exept the recent 4K UHD 2019 release in which the echo was reinstated in the Dolby Atmos mix.

How is progress on this mammoth project?🤔😊😉😊😉

STAR WARS: The Rise of Skywalker (Anti-Cringe Cut)
Time

Moderator Edit: removed a political statement from the ‘Cut List’ provided in the OP as to the inclusion of two people of the same sex seen embracing in the film.
 

Editors are free to cut the films / projects in ways they see fit - though this is NOT the place for making political statements.
 

If in any doubt it is worth giving the Site Rules a read through.

^ Spoiler:-

The ‘How do I do this?’ on the OriginalTrilogy.com - some info & answers to members’ queries thread may be of some assistance mate in this case mate - especially the ‘How to post a ‘spoiler’ on this site…’ section 😃

For longer walls of text type posts too…

Such as the text below, for example:-

Many people on here just like to chat Star Wars… whether that’s mainly the Original Trilogy (and also the copious continuing changes made to it over the years), or the Prequel & Sequel Trilogies, the Standalone Stories, various animated tv series, The Holiday Special (shudders), the Ewok films, literature, comics, art, soundtracks & audio, collecting, gaming, and the future of the ‘Galaxy Far Far Away’ - or members who just talk about life in general in the Off Topic sections.

A fair few people join here for a particular the Preservation Project, Fan Edit, documentary, blu ray or dvd cover etc. We ask that those who do… also have a look around; see if there are other Projects, Edits or works of interest to your liking. To give the Star Wars discussion threads a read through, or those in the Off Topic sections. To have a think about becoming a part of the community here; and consider not becoming a one-time poster… asking for a link to a project and to never be seen again.

^ If you also quote the above post you can see how it was done - a lot of ‘>>’ used at the start of each paragraph for where you wish to use lines of text - and also for paragraph spaces too 😃

<strong>Return Of The Jedi</strong> - 'Behind The Scenes / Making Of' <strong>images</strong> thread
Time

If people wish to post some images from the various ‘Making Of’ & ‘Behind The Scenes’ type documentaries up here in these three OT image threads that’d be great - and also serves as a welcome pointer and information on the documentaries themselves.

There are a new generation of Original Trilogy fans who likely don’t know about these documentaries, or how the unaltered original theatrical films were made back then - so having that information on here and highlighting them is more than welcome.

Of course, the images don’t have to be from every frame of these documentaries - but an overview of images from the many differing scenes would help make this thread a worthwhile resource (as well as being a cool and intriguing collection of BTS / Making Of images) 😃
 

(There is also a few of us have likely forgot about these documentaries too - or at least some of the footage from them 😉)
