Missing Y-Wing

A frame of missing Y-Wings was corrected in 2004 but not in the 4K.


Y-Wing Explosion

Example of frame damage (on the bottom Y-Wing engine) that was fixed in 2004 but not in the 4K.


Yavin Text

The replacement Aurebesh lettering done in 2004 was redone for the 4K.


Missing TIE

A frame of a missing TIE Fighter was corrected in both 2004 and the 4K.


So those are all the changes, fixes, and tweaks spotted so far. If Drew finds more, we’ll add them here.

Meanwhile, our thanks to Drew Stewart for all his hard work! Check out his similar guides to The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi here on The Digital Bits as well.

You can find Drew online on his Star Wars Revisited and Star Wars Visual Comparisons sites, and also here and here on Twitter.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the guide to A New Hope 4K!

As always, stay tuned....
