Really enjoyed listening to this, many thanks to all involved with this project
I'd love to hear this rare piece of star wars history - PM sent :)
This is a useful wikipedia article on the cultural impact of star wars
Also have a look at this:
And the History Channel documentary 'Star Wars The Legacy Revealed' might be useful - it looks at the history that inspired star wars, connections to ancient mythology and how star wars is relevant today
Also these might be useful:
hope this helps in some way
Amazing - the picture quality keeps getting better and better
just a quick thank you to omegamattman for his great work on the hyperspace collection
Just a quick huge thank you for the unbelievable work you've done on the Despecialized Editions of SW, ESB and ROTJ - they are absolutely incredible - easily one of the best reconstructions of the theatrical trilogy I've seen. Very much looking forward to SW despecialized 2.0
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Dark Jedi and everyone involved with the V3 trilogy and the unfinished Project Blu for the enormous amount of effort, dedication and skill that you've put into these projects.
I've been following this forum for a while and although I can't really offer to help finish Project Blu (very little experience in video/audio editing or film preservation I'm afraid), I really appreciate what you're doing to preserve the star wars theatrical trilogy. Such a shame that it has fallen to dedicated fans to do this (although I wouldn't be too surprised if a long way down the line, after the 3D cinema and 3D blu-ray re-releases of IV V and VI, the theatrical versions are eventually restored and released properly on dvd/blu-ray - maybe in 2017 for the 40th anniversary of star wars. Though by that time we will probably have had to sit through Empire Strikes Back 4D with a CGI Yoda poking his walking stick into the audience and vents on the backs of cinema seats so the audience can smell Vader's breath.)
That being said your V3 trilogy is easily one of the best star wars theatrical trilogy preservations I've seen, and the screenshots from Project Blu look astonishing. Very much looking forward to it and happy to help in any way I can.
