Actually there is a third symbol that appears in ROTJ. It's tattooed on Jabba's arm and is supposed to be that of his clan:
 

Well, yeah, there are other symbols in the films besides the Rebel and Empire logos, (the Mandellorian skull or whatever immediately springs to mind) but they don't have strong ties to the main characters and events that our story is following.

Personally i'm more interested in the crappier side of this phenomenon, crowd noise and the occasional head in screen are what i'm after.  Would like to hear real people getting into the spirit of the movie.  But to find those, you have to dig up all the 'preferred' preservations which are more about saving the film quality not the atmosphere.

This is what i was hoping for when I first looked into this thread an something I'm very interested in as well. I'd love to have a copy of ESB with audible and even visual crowd reaction.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure you do see the Falcon's turrets firing in ROTJ.

Yes, you do, but there are no good "hero shots" of the Falcon gunning anyone down. I think a shot from over the shoulder of the top gunner chasing down and blasting a fighter would be great. And a reaction shot to the gunners grinning face would make me cheer.

You know my care for Details... But WTF with this crawl seriously ??! The main reason why I see people would want something else is to me that they want to be sure they have every version possible to be able to tell they have the "best"... While it doesn't improve the quality...

Or do they want to propose something just to... propose something ? In a way they could have a role or a word to say? Actually that's something great when people propose good ideas to improve a project... But not after 40 pages of the thread when the carrotts are all rootten (and I know what I'm talking about!). Push the red button D_J, just don't pay attention.

And beware the new D_J's avatar says it: he's angry !

 

PS: If you could add a few stars behind the crawl though...

PPS: Thank you all again for the kind comments btw.

Wow. I had no idea there was such a heated debate going on here.

EPISODE IV was not on there back when it first came out was it? I thought that was added later, and if so why would people want that?

No, it wasn't there originally. I'd like to have it 'cause it links the films together as a series (not that they aren't without it) and I like the continuity. But I totally see why some, if not most, would want the original version.

Here's a little something I'd really like to see in Jedi. During the space battle, it would be nice to see the Falcons gunners like Han and Luke in 'Hope. I love those gun turrets and targeting screens and it would be nice to see shots of the battle from that view point, see another couple rebel characters in the film and add some cool shots of imperial fighters getting taken out. You could maybe even add a bit of dialog between them and Lando at one point.

Yes? No?

Just curious, Doesn't the GOUT have the original crawl? and if so what is it you guys want?

I was gonna ask which crawl is used on the GOUT. I figured it had the EPISODE IV on it. I'd prefer this to have it actually. But it's not a deal breaker. I'd really like the option to switch, but I totally understand if D_J doesn't want to mess with it. Though, if he doesn't, one of you who know how to should. Team work makes the ...thing work.

Thanks, hope someone enjoys the effort.  A torrent can be created, suggest a place.  In the mean time, various programs can make the RAR downloading process automated.

For instance, there are plugins for firefox like FlashGot

 

Ooh, I like this thing! Thanks for all the info and most of all for all the work on this project! can't wait to watch all the TV ads.

The unmasking of Vader and Richard Marquand

 I will have to find the quote, but Lucas was asked when they were filming TPM if Spielberg would direct Episode II & III.  Now I am paraphrasing but he said, "Spielberg has alot of great movies:  Jaws, Jurassic Park, ET, etc, but Star Wars is my baby."

Pretty much Lucas is saying that HE is known for Star Wars, and Spielberg has enough great movies to be a part of  ANOTHER great movie series.

Thats why I found the revelation that Spielberg was going to direct Jedi in the 2004 documentary seemed out of nowhere. 

Ok, maybe George didn't ask Steve to direct one of the prequels, Geoge was in complete control of those atrocities. No outside opinions or steering at all. And we all know how that ended up... But we're talking Jedi.

And why would George want this information in the documentary (and don't fool yourself into thinking he wasn't in control of it's content) if he was running around saying that he never asked Spielberg to do it?

Spielberg saying "Star Wars is Georges baby" makes a lot more sense. It's polite way of saying no.

Then again, George has been caught in so many lies that finding out that the Spielberg to direct Jedi story is false would hardly faze me.

Lucas has repeated time and time again that Star Wars was his baby, and that is why he never asked Spielberg to direct one of the movies.  I always always thought that 'Spielberg to direct Jedi' stuff in Empire of Dreams documentary was a bunch of B.S.

Lucas has repeated a lot of B.S. time and time again. It means nothing. And what does SW being his "baby" have anything to do with Spielberg directing or not? Georgy didn't direct Empire, nor was he even on set for most of it's filming. I don't see how him asking Spielberg to direct Jedi is even remotely far fetched.

 

As for the un-masking of Vader, I thought it was brilliant when I was a small child and I still do today. It was a total shocker to find out that Vader was a redeemable human being.
