I just got the original trilogy on DVD. I was dismayed there were no deleted scenes. It gave me a taste with the old trailers but I want more. Where's Biggs? Where's the sandstorm in Episode VI? I wuz robbbed!

George has to give us all a reason to buy his 'Complete Saga' boxed set for Xmas '06, doesn't he? :rolleyes:

That was my conclusion. But hey, I'm not shelling out more money for just a few deleted scenes. My friend will buy them and I'll watch the deleted scenes at his house. I haven't watched the deleted scenes from TPM and AOTC more than twice anyway.

I hate to admit it, but I'd buy them again, if two conditions are met:

[list=1]
Each film gets a good, 'Phantom Menace' style documentary, with as much behind the scenes footage as they can stuff into it.
'A New Hope' is properly colour-corrected... and I don't just mean Luke's lightaber; the whole movie is shifted strangely toward the red end of the spectrum, and I personally believe GL did this intentionally, so that us sticklers would have to buy another one.
[/list=1]

At any rate, I do bet we'll see a new set soon, probably with an 'exclusive sneak peek' at the upcoming series (serieses?) :rolleyes:

I would also buy them... as good as the DVD's are, I was a bit disappointed that to CG wasn't improved at all... well, I'm going to need another 200 dollars

I have almost every VHS and Star Wars dvd available, so... yes... I'll shell out the money :P (I think I'm only missing Phantom Menace DVD)

Though of course there will be another release in the next DVD format.

George Lucas is planning to re-release all the Star Wars movies in the nifty new 3D format (y'know, with those nifty 3D glasses), one per year starting in 2006 or 2007 (can't remember which). There was an article on it in theonering.net. Apparently, Peter Jackson, George Lucas, James Cameron, and a bunch of other big-name directors are calling for the introduction of 3D formatting to theatres.

The best way to see the deleted scenes, at least the ANH deleted scenes is getting a copy of the CD Star Wars: Behind the Magic.

And... Variety has just posted a copy of an article where Rick McCallum contradicts George Lucas by saying that the market for a 3D trilogy won't be ready by 2007, so it will be delayed.

Well, perhaps Mr. McCallum can explain that to Lucas when returns to the ranch....

McC: ...L-Lucas is coming here?

kaeroth: Yes, and he's most disppointed in your....


blah blah blah you know the scene. that's just the first thing i thought of when i read korpil's post. sorry.

Can you explain to me what exaclt would a 3D triogy be?!?!?

Well, in the past ShoWest convention at Las Vegas, several filmmakers including George Lucas and James Cameron showcased a new digital projection technology which allows for 3D movies, you know, like in Disneyland where you get your special glasses and see the pictures in 3D...

Well, George was so amazed by the development that he promised (yet another) version of the original Star Wars trilogy in that 3D format, supposedly to be out for 2007...

Later, Rick McCallum, who has produced everything from the Young Indy cronicles up to Episode III, said it was too early to consider the 3D a viable market... so the 3D trilogy would have to wait further than 2007.

Surely films would have to be filmed in 3D, not just converted?

Though I admit I know very little about 3D technology.

Well.... they were filmed in 3D. I mean, unless Mark Hamil is a carboard cutout. :) Sorry, I just had to be a smart alec.

Anyway, They are more or less converted. I saw an article on it in National Geographic. It's nifty.

As I understand it, new 3D movies use two projectors, instead of one. Each projects at a slightly different angle, mimicking the different angles we get as humans from each eye. The glasses are used to accentuate the difference and give us depth perception.

At least, that's my understanding of it.

That might be how they do things with the polarized 3D glasses like they have at Disneyland (with Michael Jackson starring as Captain Whatshisname), and Jaws 3D.

The 1960's style of 3D was a bit different. The ones that use the red and blue glasses (which is, of course, more fun), is a bit different than what you see at Disney. The red and blue glasses actually make your mind respond to red and blue tints that are shaded into the film. So, in essence you are seeing the "real" Darth Vader, and red Darth Vader, and a blue Darth vader. A baslic and oversimplified explanation is that the glasses trick your eyes into cramming them all together, and with different distances between the red, blue, and actual immage, your mind makes it look like it's popping out of the screen.

If that doesn't make sense, feel free to ignore me. :)

I understand how 3d movies are shot... but the sw movies were shot in 2D, from 1 point of view. I cannot conceive how they can add depth... (I know, it's my field of work... 3D from 2D :)

To go from 2D to 3D you'll need 6 pips.

Well, they've done it. PJ already had shots from LOTR fixed up, and I *think* GL was doing some beta stuff too. Besides, they wouldn't be considering it if it wasn't possible...
