A very modern version of a new hope with a much needed upgrade to the duel and a much more epic introduction to darth vader with the R1 hallway scene, it's quite a simple edit but it does the job just right. It's quite incredible :)

This hits differently. The Darth Vader appearance from Rogue One seemingly fits in perfectly and is way more badass. The addition of the SC 38 fight thankfully falls in line with how the prequel films most notably Revenge of the Sith's lightsaber duel between Vader and Kenobi are updated with this rematch. As for the scenes from the Special Editions, the ones that are replaced with the original scenes were choices I would have removed. Overall, this is definitely a good "revisit" to look at.

I will start by what I consider the only "negative" in the movie. My personal preference was to keep the spectacular Vader hallway scene with Rogue One. I love it, but I like it in that movie. I understand why people want it included , but it was not for me. However, the editor did an excellent job integrating the scene seamlessly into the movie.

I note that as according to another forum, it used Adywan's New Hope edit as a base. That is obviously a major bonus - particularly on the visual standpoint. For someone with poor eyesight. The visual changes really help me watch the movie much more smoothly.

I also really liked his slight variation to the SC 38 reimagined. I really wanted this in the movie, but with original dialogue restored. This edit accomplished that. Although it did remove the portion of the dual with Vader and Obi-Wan in the congested hallway, I understood why it was done. It was clearly out of place, but I still would have liked it.

I also agreed with the minor cuts the editor listed as I saw the movie as these extraneous shenanigans were unecessary such as the droids not being hit by fire and overly moronic stormtroopers.

Overall, this was well done. However, there are two nitpicks I do have. In the copy I have, after Vader strikes Obi-Wan and approaches the blast doors, his lightsaber color becomes clear, which by my understanding was how it was in the original theatrical version. I also would have liked a slight change in dialogue from Obi-Wan telling Luke that he ("I") wanted to give him the lightsaber. This would be more appropriate for continuity considering Vader is unaware he even has a child (I know that A New Hope was originally intended to be a standalone movie and Vader was not Anakin initially).

Overall, this is my personal favorite edit of this movie. Job well done by the editor.

Incorporations from other media feel for the most part seemless. A good way to watch a more modern version of a new hope.
