As I mentioned in the other thread, replace the wampa with the Agreeable Snowman from Monsters Inc.

I also have this old video I made that connects ESB to the prequels more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-wFb9DU0SQ

Lando can constantly ask "what did you do to my ship?" anytime the Falcon is referenced, and could be in the middle of that sentence when they go to lightspeed at the end.

When Han Solo cuts the taun taun open someone could be peeking out. A line from CB4 of a guy hiding in a prison laundry basket saying "I'm in this one!" could fit there, maybe?

Someone would have to help but I really like this.

I could try a mockup to see how it plays. Perhaps this evening.

Another idea is that Luke never figures out who Yoda actually is, and keeps asking when they will meet Yoda, even as he is going along with the actual training. This could carry on into Return of the Jedi and Luke would even ask Force Ghost Obi Wan why they can't meet Yoda.

LOL. "WHY CAN'T WE SEE YODA NOW?!", he says to Obi-Wan's force ghost.

… And they had ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, the fifth of the four Star Wars films. He is fucking with us numerically, isn’t he! “Children, count up to ten.” “Four, five, six, one, two, three, ten”. No, it goes, four, five, six, one, two, three… No, it goes: four, five, six. One… Two and three have not been made." “Two and three have not been made! What should they be?” “What should they be? We do not know. All we know is that there will be a big floppy character in it that goes, squawk squawk squawk… who needs a punch up the bracket!” - Eddie Izzard, “Circle”, 2000

Uh oh, looks like the idea is not new! Oh well.

What if we saw the Tardis interior with the Doctor peering out?

Don't know why I didn't think of that.

"er, um, interesting fact about star destroyers, there, norm..."

 

JEDIT: apparently he wasn't overdubbed, according to some youtube commenters here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt28gOnYz94 and listening a few times in a row, that could very well be the case.

I just watched Batman Returns last night. Billy Dee Williams speaks to the people of Gotham City: We've received a letter from Batman this morning. 'Please inform the citizens of Gotham that Gotham City has earned a rest from crime. But if the forces of evil should rise again, to cast a shadow on the heart of the city, call me.'

This might be changed to this:
We've received a letter from Vader this morning. 'Please inform the citizens of Bespin that Bespin has earned a rest from crime. But if the forces of evil should rise again, to cast a shadow on the heart of the city, call me.'

Maybe even with a Batman/Vader sign that shines in the background.

Never trust anyone on Youtube. ;)

I suppose he could be good with doing other voices, as he's been in all those Pixar movies. The other scene where he tells the pilots "Let's go!" sounds like his normal speaking voice though.

Here's a few ideas for Lando TooCoolToHandle:

His line at 0:12 could be used when Han arrives to Cloud City.

Perhaps this could be Lando's theme music?

And, after Lando invites Leia for refreshments, when she says yes, Lando could say the final line in this video:

^ Great idea. I wanna hear those vocals in the edits for sure.

Ha-ha, I like it.

Quotes from Batman for Lando are great, but I think quotes from Brian's Song might be even better.  There could be a whole lot of attention to the fact that he's the only black man in the OT, and considering the theme of Brian's Song, you'd have a lot of lines to pull from.

Here is a small sample from IMDB:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068315/trivia?tab=qt&ref_=tt_trv_qu

Another example, when he sees Han, "How you doin' you old pirate!  So good to see you!  How's your mother?"

The ROTJ collaborative thread is a wealth of ideas, both on how to edit Return of the Jedi, as well as how to collaborate in an edit.

Yeah, but I already own Batman.

A slightly different idea I had for the tauntaun:

http://vimeo.com/70818522

2 more options:

- replace John Candy with Nute Gunray (maybe even "now there are two of them" would work here)
or
- replace him with Jimmy Hoffa (did Ford ever say the name?)

You're right. This would be really great. :)

Didn't Billy record an album? I think it was called Let's Misbehave. He could burst into song every once in a while just to be told to stop it.

 

Edit to add:
Just thought about this scene: Han and Lando meet (The "Why, you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler."-scene) Have that really long awkward pause with crickets and all the thingmajigs, just to let Lando repeat the line. Maybe with some alternating reaction shots. Tension, tension everywhere!
