This is a solid enhancement of the existing story, with Biggs Darklighter and Luke's scenes providing the viewer with a little more insight into things rarely if at all touched upon in the theatrical SW movies. They do slow the pace of the film down, but they make for compelling viewing all the same, they're more laid back and leave you with plenty to think about. The scenes are well integrated, with appropriate music cues for much of it (though I think when we first see Luke there could have been more dramatic music for viewing the space battle).

Again, the deleted scenes are still significantly unpolished and come with many interior faults such as visible on-screen scratches...this is probably beyond Bobson's control and nevertheless, the edit remains a solid watch and a strong recommendation for any curious fans out there who want to expand their knowledge of the lore.

I was hit with a huge wave of nostalgia upon seeing that old Twentieth Century Fox logo and seeing that non special edition footage, really felt like I was reliving some great memories of my childhood though as to the inclusion of the deleted scenes they really help to make Luke’s and Biggs friendship more meaningful and when it comes time for Bigg’s character to be killed of it now hits much harder than it did originally as I can now sympathise with Luke on the joy of being reunited with a close friend again only to experience the pain of having lost that friend again and knowing that this time they won't come back.

Luke also has a little more depth and growth thanks to these scenes accompanying the rest of the movie though I do wish you could have found a way to remove all the visual lines and black crackles that plagued the footage of the deleted scenes though I am aware that there’s only so much editing software can do well at least until better editing software comes out.

Very interesting concept, and Bobson once again really pulls it off. I had a great time with this. This is my favorite movie of all time and it's very interesting to see it this way. I'd still rather watch the theatrical, as I believe the scenes were correctly cut, and the drop in quality is obviously more noticeable than it usually should be, but Bobson makes it look as good as it gets. I had a great time.

Star Wars is by far one of the best sci-fi franchises of all time. It was groundbreaking from the start and continued to expand it's abilities through each trilogy. To add and broaden the saga further through the fan's eyes makes it all even better.

Now Bobson Dugnutt, one of the best fan editors I have come across, has stretched the original 1977 blockbuster into what should have been in the first place. A way more solid experience that creates an original experience from a galaxy far far away.

Not only does this edit really bring out the sci fi nerd in all of us, it makes us fandom geeks want even more. And it satisfies the community beyond what to expect. It's a gratifying and honestly much appreciated.

A masterful fan edit!!

A really fun concept for a fanedit of A New Hope masterfully realized by terrific editing. The scenes are beautifully reintegrated into the film and complement the overall narrative remarkably well. Excellent work.
