It’s no secret that The Empire Strikes Back is my (and many other fans’) favorite Star Wars movie and one of my favorite films of all time. Now, a truly talented and hardcore fan, Adywan, with an eagle eye for technical details and serious editing skills has taken it upon himself to improve the high-definition version of the film with many changes in his
soon eventually to be released fanedit known as The Empire Strikes Back: Revisited. The changes range from (on the minimal side) color correction to (on the extreme side) hand painted mattes, homemade models and digital effects. The fanedits he makes are essentially his take on what the Special Editions should have been; technical improvements with no story changing elements or silly gags thrown in.
Below is one of his comparison videos. Continue reading for another. Notice the new models for the AT-AT Imperial walkers through the binoculars (along with the revised look of the binocular view). The color correction is spot on and there are more speeders and walkers visible. He even added orange stripes to a full size speeder that were missing from the original shot as they take off from the hanger.
