Star Wars 2CD - A New HOPE

Would expect some sort of official announcement first.

These stupid sites put up placeholder pages like this all the time in advance. There's still 1.5 months until that unconfirmed release date when it could be announced.

Well, we did first learn about the Fellowship of the Ring CR reissues through an Amazon link

Holy crap i was ecstatic that I didn't miss out on those for forever after all!

I believe this is a new expansion. I believe Mike Matessino is involved in this. I'm sure about that.

 

While there is have no doubt that this is an eventuality, let's wait until there is OFFICIAL confirmation on if this Amazon page refers to a new and definitive release.

 

Don't forget that Mike Mattesino neither confirmed nor denied that the Maestro's scores to the Star Wars Saga will be getting the definitive treatment when he was asked by Maurizio Caschetto at the end of the interview about the releases to The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Monsignor, and Minority Report on The Legacy of John Williams website. So here's hoping! I'm optimistic.

Why did they have an incompetent person rebuild the OSTs from scratch, though? Don't they even care about paying someone to do proper work?

Whatever! As long as Mike is doing the expansions, we'll be able to use them to rebuild ourselves the OST in the best quality :)

I'm sure as far as any exec at Disney Records is concerned, Shawn Murphy did do a "proper" job remastering those.  There are so few people working in the industry that truly know what the consumers of expanded film score presentations actually want.  Shawn Murphy and Disney Records execs are not in that group.

They literally rebuilt the OSTs from scratch from new scans instead of straightup reissuing the Sony remasters that came out only 2 years before. I think we're very likely to be safe from at least it being a complete SE reissue. We now just have to hope they got MM to work on the real deal instead of Random Intern #74 and #92 fucking everything up just a little here and there.

 Yeah I also think it's going to be different than the SE's and Sony, but probably the "de-masters" that Shawn Murphy did with random intern # 82 doing the assembly

 

That said, I have no issues with the sound of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back on the 1997 SE's

I don't want them starting with the only one that actually sounds good on the 1997 release...

Parts of the demaster like the Dies Irae after the hologram (I think) sound a lot better on the demaster... on the other hand TIE Fighter attack sounds a lot less lively than on the SE, flat and punchless.

None of the specialty labels would release a JW expansion without seeking his approval (Quartet's Tom Sawyer release in 2015 was the last time that happened), and I would ASSUME a major label like Disney Records knows this as well but... maybe they don't?  I don't know. 

 

If this is a new Shawn Murphy rebuild of the 1997 program with no (intentional) changes than that probably wouldn't require JW approval either, like the OST remasters didn't.

Why do I feel like it's not going to take long for this thread to end up with more posts than the ones recent expansions that are already out...

Because all these expansions are excellent and therefore there is not much to be said about them. :)
