As advertised, excellent editing and cutting. Besides one minorly noticeable cut they are indistinguishable from the original movie's quality. Audio is well mixed also.

Several interesting changes that I really liked, besides many trimmed shots and scenes that did help with pacing and silliness. I never really had an issue with Luke immediately realising who his sister is, but removing that imformation from the Obi-Wan conversation does add a nice extra bit of suspense to the film. The re-edit of the Han & Lando conversation outside the Falcon is an emormous improvement. The original conversation is so stilted and awkward, and "would you get going you pirate" was always way too cheesy a line and too cheerfully said. I like the choice to end on Vader's burning pyre but I think the cut to credits probably should've been on the pan up to fireworks rather than the pan back down.

Thanks for making this, enjoyed it a lot. I would have preferred some more cuts to Han especially, and I feel like there's only so much you can do to improve the narrative of the movie, hence the lower score here, but regardless I definitely recommend to people who want a fan edit that doesn't stray too far from the original, but feel the pacing and tone suffers from all the ewok and han goofiness.
