Revenge of the Sith (Compelete voiceover/New Dub edit)

Still new to this but after watching some great edits over the years i thought I’d give it a shot.

When i see some hate on the prequels and the PT era i always tell them to give the EU a chance because that’s where the Prequels really shine, but understandably some are just movie fans. The Clone Wars is my favorite era and its shown in the novels,games,the two cartoon series,comics etc… But the movies sadly were a let down.

The ROTS novelization is one of the best books written in the Star Wars franchisee in my opinion and its a shame the movies couldn’t bring such a great story to light.

I recently heard the audio book of the novel and it made me like the story even better, like the movie we always wanted to see come to life. Anakin and Obi wan have some great back and forth banter and it seems to have the brotherly relationship the Clone Wars cartoon shows. Lines are a improvement and we get to explore characters inner thoughts.

So it hit me with the audio book i could try to tell its story and combine it with the visuals of the movie.

I’m still in the early stages so i don’t have a clear idea and if you guys have any ideas I’m all ears, but here are some of my thoughts to what I’m thinking

The voices have a really good range they got r2d2 sounds and the voice work ranges from Yoda to Anakin to Dooku and Vader etc. Don’t know if it one guy but if it is he really is talented. Padame i have to edit because its a male trying to replicate her voice so a voice changer to make more female sounding

Might play around with pitch shifting the voices to make them sound a little more distant.

Don’t know if i want to make this a Revenge of the Sith movie edit or a micro series/ cartoon series style episode show, especially with the narration.

If i do it a movie edit thinking of doing some narration style in the movie kinda like good fellas style where the main character narrates of people on who they are. Kinda could use this as a flash back scene.

Thinking of adding that scene in ep2 with Dooku talking with the separatists in Geonosis and the short clip with that Muun as a Palatine flash back scene of Plagueis telling/teaching him about manipulation.

I want to add Yoda talking with Qui-Gon coming back as a ghost voice telling him of his faults and the how jedi were blind having a really good heart to heart moment and then Qui-Gon telling him about how he could become a force ghost and to got to Dagobah.

Here’s something i put together. The scene is the beginning of ROTS movie.

Looks like a lot of work, but you’ve done an amazing job so far! I agree, the novelization is far superior to the movie. It’s fun to see the improved dialogue and narration. I hope you continue with this project!

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.

This project has my interest. Love the idea. I like EpIII as it is (and I like it even better when fanedited with great talent) but I would surely watch a “Dune” version out of it 😃 Good luck 😉

“I have to say that I felt George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters.” - James Cameron about Episode VII.

Part of what makes that scene work is that you never see Plagueis. It would ruin the mystery to have a clear shot of him like that, not to mention he would look silly. Besides, it’s totally pointless.

Sounds like a really interesting edit to me! I thought the ROTS novel was far better than the film.

Glad you guys enjoyed. Ya this is time consuming but I’m guessing if i stay motivated i could get something out soon, with the holidays coming up i should have more free time.

I’m still on the fence with this since its such a short clip, tnx for the feedback.
