May The Fourth Be With You!

Cause it's that time of year! From it's beginnings as a joke to an unofficial holiday for Star Wars.

Show your love whether as a whole, OT, PT, EU, other medias in rewatching the movies or carrying around a lightsaber or putting on a Vader helmet to scare the kids.

"Do what must be done!"

  • I can't decide whether "Fourth" is an intentional joke or an accidental typo.


    Anyways, Adywan's Star Wars:Revisited fan edits are the best. I love the original theatrical version of the Original Trilogy, but they are letterboxed instead of anamorphic widescreen.

    Here's a video comparison of Han's rescue of Luke on Hoth for the upcoming Empire:Revisited:

    Here's a video comparison of the Death Star attack for Star Wars:Revisited:

    Also, the SE's additional changes (especially Jedi Rocks in ROTJ) are stupid and the PT sucks.

  • Whatever. So May 4th is supposed to be an unofficial Star Wars holiday? Why?

    Why do you expect that just because someone is a Star Wars fan that means they ought to keep up with random stuff like that? I've seen Star Wars a bunch of times, and read several EU books. Why then should I know what is so special about May 4th?

    You don't have to facepalm at me like I'm a moron or something.

  • Oh come on, face palm hurts to get but we all deserve it time to time. It's ok, I don't think you're a moron. I think what really got this going was that it's an obvious pun for May The Force Be With You, and it's obviously not a typo, lol as it's been presented that way for a LOOONG time now.

    The real pain isn't that it's a trek face palm, it's that it's HIM...

    More importantly does anyone know if these films have more edits in them, extra scenes in the films? I can't find any solid information on actual content. Such as a new CGI jabba in A New Hope, things of that nature...

    There should be more information about the Blu-Rays released today. We'll wait and see.

    Incidentally, has that Empire: Revisited been released yet? I've really been looking forward to it - that comparison video was just... wow.

  • Yes, I know "May the Force be with you." I still don't know what the fourth or 'that time of year' has to do with it.

    On Adywan's fan edits? He took CGI Jabba back out of A New Hope.

    Of course, given that Greedo already talked to Han about Jabba, and given that Jabba is a crime boss (and crime bosses are known for sending others, like Greedo, to do the dirty work for them,) Jabba shouldn't have needed to be there anyway.

    More information about ANH:Revisited can be found at fanedit.org and the originaltrilogy.com forum. The movie is free, not-for-profit and should only be obtained if you have bought a copy of the official movie. There are various formats (.avi; single-layer/dual layer PAL/NTSC DVD) available from various places, which can be linked to from Fanedit.info

    More information about ESB:Revisited (which has not as yet been released) can also be found at the original trilogy.com forum (on a different thread). It's not finished yet, but there is a clip of the first 16 minutes on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjfECy6kW2Y

  • "May the Fourth" sounds like "May the Force." I have solved the mystery for you.

  • I appreciate your fan edits, but this is really about the new bluray release.

    Peace...

    Obviously. That doesn't answer the question, though.

    Ohh. [/care about Star Wars on Bluray]

    Okay then.
