Star Wars - Episode I: The Ancient Lore

Episode I is the best-looking of the three prequels, with a lot of devotion put into them from both the crew, actors as well as the director himself before he went all ludacris on digital moviemaking. It is also the most dull of the three prequels, with little to no character motivation or even plot explanation.

This project was started at fanedit ORG in around 2014, but was abandoned due to hardware loss. It got re-started somewhere around early 2015. The entire purpose of this edit is to re-make the entire movie into a very interesting and exciting piece of cinema, with the very best of my ability to make it into a coherent Star Wars addition, full of wonder, mystery, compelling characters and life.

[The Changes]

  • There are more new visual effects than i can count, and many alterations to both audio (voice and alien language) as well as music and sound effects.
  • The movie is heavily re-scored.
  • The movie is about 50-60% replaced with a self-created audiomix for a lot of different scenes.
  • Story narrative completely altered. The beginning of the movie in the Trade Federation Ship now takes place in the middle of the movie, and the story now starts with a Space chase, Naboo and the saving of the Queen.
  • Appearances of Lord Sidious will have his hologram face hidden for a duration of the beginning to create mystery, as well as his hologram voice altered and new plot points given.
  • The Nemodians (Nute Gunray & Co.) speak in foreign Alien language, to give of new and menacing voices, as well as completely new plot points for the story.
  • The Purple saber of Mace Windu will be removed in my trilogy, and given to Qui-Gon. It makes him more important, and fits his rogue style as he choses not to be on the Jedi Council. Mace Windu will get green.
  • Jar-Jar Binks has a new, altered voice (might consider a re-dub of the character before an initial release).
  • Battle Droids has a new voice, but hardly ever speak.
  • Jar-Jar Binks will serve as comic relief, although appearances or voice from him that diminish an important character or story moment, will be removed or decreased. His presence is that of C-3PO in A New Hope; he’s there, but he doesn’t take up screentime that he does not deserve.
  • Qui-Gon is the main character of the story. This is very clear throughout. Obi-Wan and Anakin are side-characters that will get to shine a little bit throughout, but are part of a bigger puzzle to occur in the later entries of the trilogy.
  • Anakin has, to the very best of my ability, become a very strict, grown-up kid with a lot of personality. This comes across in his dialogue with Wattoo and Sebulba, as well as his lack of stupid lines or groans or unecessary screentime. There are neither any accidents in his actions.
  • Anakin is not any chosen one, and his father died gambling. His mother is all he has. Anakin and Padme’s love theme is given to Anakin and his mom and their relationship.
  • Darth Maul has a lot more screentime and presence throughout.

[PLOT EXPLANATION]
The Nemodians have gathered political supporters, systems, planets - and most importantly - techonology and intelligence - through the co-operation with Palpatine, aka. Lord Sidious, for years. Naboo is the movie’s target for invasion, because this is where Palpatine sees fit to create his Clone Army; Naboo has everything they need - the huge space travel gap between them and the Republic, and all the resources needed.

Really excited for this!

EDIT:

The first clip is edited really well, except for the constant shot reuse and lack of spacial awareness. Are they going towards the planet or away? Are they in the middle of space or are they next to a planet? Etc.

I really like the writing for the Nemoidians, they seem genuinely threatening.

Yes, I’ve been thinking about replacing the background planet with starfields, or simply re-grade and re-color it to be another. I don’t think this would’ve been much of a problem if people just assumed it was another planet than Naboo, but seeing how everyone know it isn’t - it might be a tad too confusing.

Thanks for your positive feedback! I look forward to pleasing both you and @Smithers.

Dude! This has everything i wished for in the prequels. Mystery, villainy, suspense, and pace!

This looks so promising! I hope you finish it and you should!

I always thought the theatrical opening was fantastic, so I don’t like when people skip it, but it never occured to me to put it in the middle instead. That said, I think I still prefer it at the start. It kicks things off with a bang.

Wow! The YouTube links don’t work for me on my crap phone, but this edit sounds too good to be true

Liking what I’ve seen so far, though taking out the “Chosen One/Virgin Birth” aspect of the father will probably make it weird to watch in sequence, since it’s likely Ep 8 and 9 will reference it at some point.

I hate the entire concept, but I’ve been thinking about this. I might re-introduce it in EP II, and at the end of TPM/TAL.

Yeah, I always thought TPM was the only one of the prequels that actually looks like a SW movie (or like a movie at all in general, for that matter).

But he’s not wrong.

I believe the original, theatrical versions of SW & TESB are great films. Beyond that, I have little in common with the typical
Star Wars fan here. Just a heads-up so you aren’t too taken aback when I say I prefer Dark Empire over Return of the Jedi.

[REQUEST]

I will be needing a cover art for this edit. I would like Qui-Gon big at the center with a purple, ignited saber, and Obi-Wan - smaller framed - by his side. Anakin, Jar-Jar, Battle Droids and Queen Amidala smaller framed in the background. Also, The Trade Federation Ship would be pretty neat to cover big parts of the background (or the planet of Naboo), or at least one of them on one of the sides. Credits will be given.

Consider me thrilled beyond belief! This is like the A New Hope Revisited, but for the prequel trilogy.

I hope you’ll release this, man!
