Evolution of the Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope from 1977 (122 pics)

Posted in PICTURES       23 Sep 2010       16858       10

A New Hope episode was first released in 1977 and since than has undergone many changes.

It was re-released several times. One of the most notable versions is the 2004 DVD, which was modified with CGI effects and recreated scenes. It is amazing to see how big the difference is and how many has changed in 27 years. Some changes are subtle though, others, well they are blatant.

For the most part, I actually liked the old ones best. The dusty look adds realism, the new ones are "too perfect".

Compared to the resources available at the time, the old ones beat the new ones by fifteen parsecs. :-D

Alkhoren,
fifteen parsecs isn't much ^^ lol thats still a lot, but i won't double that, or third, as the case is, anyway i find it interesting but too long, it bored me a bit

and what a shame that someone held a gun to your head, forcing you to look at every pic.

...

overall there's about 4-5 shots where the new look is better. otherwise, the rest of the pics just show how terribly neurotic and insecure george lucas became over time.

it still blows my mind how a guy who made two excellent movies in 1973 and 1977 could go on to make nothing but mediocre, or downright-awful movies after that, yet still become a multi-billionaire legend and highly influential force.

perhaps this is related to the fact that theaters nowadays show almost nothing but (hollywood-produced) crap. i mean, 99% of the time now when i want to see a genuinely good film, i need to watch an independent or an import film.

which i find to be sad, considering how great and innovative hollywood used to be...

BTW, what's with all of the shots comparing 2004 to 2004? i mean, what exactly does that have to do with 1977 vs. the final edit, which i thought was the point of this post...?

@gigantes: The "2004 to 2004 comparisons" would actually be the added scenes, which did not appear in the original. Leaving the 1977 part blank would be just a waste of space, and the added scenes are quite relevant to a comparison, don't you think?
