The ambitious fan edit of the first Star Wars film, toned down to please some "purists".


Inspired by the ADigitalMan/Darth Editous Hybrid fan edit, Adywan decided to make his own edit based on the 2004 DVD. This version of Revisited is unique in that Adywan went out of his way to edit back some scenes to see if people enjoyed it more.
