The Making Of Star Wars Despecialized Edition [Video]

Following on from our piece yesterday about Disney reportedly working on Blu-ray releases of the original versions of Star Wars episodes IV, V and VI, here’s a documentary about a fan project that’s already doing a similar thing unofficially.

Star Wars: Despecialized Edition is an attempt to take the original release, without the edits and special effects of later rereleases, but to clean up the footage and make it better suited to high-resolution displays and surround sound systems. It brings together multiple sources, including using an original film print as reference.

This “gray market” version is only available through torrent sharing and the makers request that only people who own the official Blu-ray release download it.
