Star Wars - Despecialized Edition Remastered
Hello people, it's been a while. How's it hangin'? Smile

Yeah, now, interesting subject I got here, right? You have no idea... Let me get to it then.

2 days ago I realized that I do not have the original Star Wars trilogy in my Data folder, so I decided to download it. I know, some of you will say that I should buy the trilogy, but i disagree. Why? Because, all I can buy is the Special Edition DVD/BR and I do not want that, I want a Theatrical or VHS version, only in HD. That never came out and every Star Wars fan is still waiting for it.

So while I was searching for it i stumbled across something interesting. A few good people of the internet actually made a Despecialized version of all 3 movies (episodes IV, V and VI). How? They took 7 different videos sources and 21 audio track and they combined it to give all of us the original trilogy, despecialized, in 720p HD. Yes, you heard me correct. Here is the txt info of the New Hope:

This is a reconstruction of the 1977 theatrical version of STAR WARS. The original shots were painstakingly restored using
various sources (listed below) and the film received an extensive shot by shot colour correction based on a fade free 1977
I.B. Technicolor Print.

The remastered version (v2.0) represented a significant improvement in picture quality over the earlier version.

Version v2.1 further improved upon the previous version mainly by refining the colour correction but also by replacing many of the despecialized shots with higher quality ones.

Version v2.5 offers few more little tweaks to the picture and contains an unprecedented number of audio options, including lossless
DTS-HD tracks for the original mixes (the original 70mm six-track was recreated by hairy_hen, the original stereo mix was captured
from LaserDisc PCM and fixed up by hairy_hen and the original mono mix was restored by Belbucus from a VHS recording), an isolated
score, four different commentary tracks, dubbing tracks in ten different languages and dialects and a British commentary
for visually impaired.


More information can be found here:

Unverified subtitles (may need significant improvements):

Mandarin (Simplified), American Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Korean, Turkish, Romanian, Croatian,

Greek, and Bulgarian.


All subtitles are from "Project Threepio v6.2"

More info here:

http://originaltrilogy.com/forum/topic.c...pic/13794/


If you want to watch with subtitles, take your chosen subtitle .srt file from the

"Subtitles - Project Threepio" folder, copy it to the folder with the .mkv file and

rename the .srt file to the same name as the .mkv file, while keeping the .srt extension.


So for example, if you wanted to watch with Bulgarian subtitles, you would copy the file

"SW-bg-full.srt" from the "Subtitles - Project Threepio" folder to the folder with the

"Star.Wars.Despecialized.Edition.v2.5.mkv" file and rename the file to

"Star.Wars.Despecialized.Edition.v2.5.srt".

I suggest you watch this 11 minute documentary about how and what they did...





At this point you are all searching for the torrents, but stop that and continue reading, because I will give you all the links now.

Star Wars: Episode IV - New Hope - Despecialized Edition Remastered v2.5.mkv:

This is a MKV version for your PC, there is also the AVCHD version for burning to BR, but I do not have a link for that one, sorry, you will have to look for it on your own.

RE: Star Wars - Despecialized Edition Remastered
Given that Georgyboy is no longer at the helm of Star Wars, I have to wonder why in the fucking hell has Disney not capitalized on people wanting the original theatrical release on DVD and Blu-Ray? I mean, they like to print money, right?

(Un)interestingly, only a few days ago, I brought a DVD copy of the trilogy for my father... He used to have the original TV releases on tape, but being VCR, they did not survive the years...

Sure you will, you just use these links I have provided and burn those movies to a blu-ray disk. There, problem solved.

1. I have no idea how to even start understanding what you wrote.
2. I wouldn't know the new from the old ones anyway (only having seen the first one (IV) at the cinema when it was first released)
3. I didn't enjoy that one.

I know. Heretic, right?

But. It's good to see you return Mr Filox. Are you planning on sticking around for a while?

How can you not like them? I do not understand... It's a space-opera, for christ sake...

Anyway, I have no idea will I be back as I use to be, but I do come here now and then to give you all some very important info, like these movies. Smile

I can't get myself to focus on any subject, so I just play Star Trek Online, or I watch some movies and TV shows. Basically, I have become extremely boring. Just the way I like it. I'm sure it will pass sooner or later, so maybe I will come back then, who knows. It's good to see you people are still here, I haven't forgotten about you and TTA is still on my speeddial bookmarks, in my Opera. Once a TTA mod, always a TTA mod. Big Grin
