Jacob Kitts : Be careful to not lose any detail with your grading. Crushing the black levels and blowing out the whites isn't worth losing any detail. : I see most of the comments are about the legal issues. I don't see anything illegal about what we have done so far. Releasing it would be illegal, selling it would be illegal. Did we do either of these things? This video just shows what can be done with a few release prints scanned at 4k - by complete amateurs! Mike Verta's Legacy Edition will still blow this away, as would anything Disney might release from the original interpositives. If Disney does the right thing, this project will be a complete waste of time and effort. And I'm fine with that. But the latest word from their camp suggests that any 4K/40th anniversary box set will really only be a 20th anniversary box set of the Special Editions.

Marcelo Zuniga : God-DAMN. I'd love to see more when you complete them. I have a strong appreciation for remastering processes like these. I'm almost too spoiled by it to ever enjoy DVDs ever again.

Mara's Musings : I'd pay to see that in a theater... : I think the colors look good, though the contrast and saturation do need some adjusting.

BarryDennen12 : When it's not yours, scan first - finish the project - THEN announce. I'm kinda worried that this'll get Cease and Desist'd before people are able to enjoy the results.

Anton Helgesson : Disney should hire you guys

Oliver : Please make this work, I am so damn excited!!!

Red Static : SUED

Summoner A : I can use instagram filters as well..

Sam Licitra : Hopefully it comes out as well as Harmy's but in 4k.

Angela Jones : The force is definitely with you guys!

🌍 Mister No : Not all heroes wear a cape... Keep up the great job!

fedor3000 : tbh i like the vhs version the most! out of nostagical reasons i think. but this is one of the most important parts of the love for that movie. If someone offerd me the vhs and some "better" version, i'd always choose the vhs version.

OmniRizzo : Looks great! Can't wait to see more examples!

Jeff Johnson : Good luck with the project guys!

Southparkchef : will this also have HDR color ?

Ludovic Mallet : Whaa Nice! But please, don't forget the audio, the track here is garbage quality...

DaftHacker : The skin seems really red compared to the original.

sluntmania : six downvotes are from george lucas, jj abrams, and four george lucas sockpuppets

doc ops : Part 8 was dope

Elle Mundy : I hope the sound quality is a little better than this trailer's.

Johnny Stevens : you could make a 4k upgrade to the despecialized edition. It would be better and i bet they would welcome it.

thepiecesfit : OMG. I came.

Massimo : Looks great

Auli : The #4k77 hashtag should evolve into a droid. It's exactly the one we're looking for,

1lapmagic : have fun wasting time and getting shut down. create something new rather than obsessing over old shit.

Nukleon : People might say you can get 4k from 35mm, but from what I understand, what you have are some old release prints. Those are most definitely not worth 4k, unless you count the added grain, dirt and optical duplications errors details. Regardless it's nice to see, but there's no way this would ever be as good as if Disney/Fox/LucasFilm finally rebuilt the original negative and scanned that.

Lightsaber Twelve : This is a complete waste of your time. Not only are Disney/Lucasfilm remastering the originals in 4K, but they are converting them to 3D as they did with Episodes 1-3. The 4K3D versions of 1-3 are complete and were shown in their entirety to the public at Celebration Orlando 2017. Obviously it will take more time with 4-6 since they are being converted from 70mm film. Disney is only holding out until 4K3D is something people have in their homes. It won't be long.

Andy Scott : The color correction looks very bad please don't continue

Corey Watford : 4K FTW

J : Although I love the idea, I can't see how Disney or Lucas Films would ever be on board.

rrgert4 : All this work, and it will get copyrighted to the point of no return?

miker : 4K it

migginy productions : Cheers lads!! Cant wait, perfect video by the way!

KillingerDOOM : could be cool, but I have a feeling the CG would look real bad in 4K.

Jay The Vaping Man : OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!

Bondfan1995 : Honestly I would love to watch it in 4K. If Fox/Disney (Fox holding the rights to Episode IV entirely due to being a Fox production) won't release it officially out of pure stupidity, then I would like to get this version as a fan edit/restoration.

GeniusGT : I hope the audio quality is better than this teaser.

The King Slayer : star wars is so overrated

NecroHunter93 : Oh yeah!

Plays WithKnives : That guy still died.

felixgraphx : DO IT

Sam Lazar Tech : Harmies starwars in 4k

kokoriko999 : Damn ! That laser disc was dreadful !!!

Ryan Hunt : What music is this from?

1 Gamer 2 Another : What sort of sorcery is this?!?!

Redswipe : I just compared a 4K screen shot from this to a screenshot from my Blu-ray and the blu seems to have a lot more detail :/ I know this is about making a 4k version of the original version but I think you might end up with a better end product by using the blu-rays as source wherever possible because the scanned 35mm prints don't seem to look as good.

Eduardo Castillo : Ok... I know you've been asked a million time but... When and how can I get the 4K77 editions.

Rod Burley : Greetings, love what you guys have been doing!! When will the restoration of Empire be taking place?? I have the Grindhouse 35mm version of that and Jedi. Love watching with the high level of grain and dirt, but would love to see it restored.
