Seeing how TJ and InfoDroid have dropped Reborn, I'm picking it up under a new project title aimed at a 2010 release. It will focus around the storyline of ANH with flashbacks to Attack of the Clones

OFFICIAL POSTER:

“Star Wars: Renascent” is the first of a three-film fan-edit which tells the story of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, simultaneously. The three films will mainly follow the storyline of the Original Trilogy and will have flashbacks to the Prequel Trilogy. It will feature new scenes, altered story lines, and will also feature some new music, which is why it’s a rebirth or a Renascence. This project was first started by two other fan-editors and it is being edited off of the DVD release of the Prequel Trilogy and adywan’s edits of the Original Trilogy.

Re: the poster, Honestly it could do with a bit of work but I love the idea you've gone for - are you cool with other people submitting poster ideas?

I just had an idea of my own - since you've got a nice close image of the Vader helmet there what would you think about showing a PT scene visible in one of the eye lenses and an OT scene in the other.

I think your "STAR WARS" title needs to be a lot clearer as as well.

Given that Reborn was a planned trilogy, Are you going to go that route, Or are you just doing ONE movie as your version? Sorry if you answered that already - I don't have time to read it all now, Just thought I'd comment on the poster. I'll check back later when I get home from work...

Yes it will be a trilogy. However I'm using the Revisited DVDs so for ESB and ROTJ you're going to have to wait a bit. Also I'm going to redo the Star Wars logo and yeah no problem, poster concepts are fine! And I'll give that Vader thing a shot. I was going for a Drew Struzan feel to the poster.

Also that title is a work in progress. I wanted it to simply be Star Wars: The Clone Wars but that's been overused... what if I just kept it with the title "STAR WARS" and we call it the Chronicles or Clone Wars Chronicles as a project title? So going by that we call the other ones simply "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi" but the project titles could be "The Empire Strikes Back: The Sith Ascension" and "Return of Jedi: The Dark Redemption"

Those could also be the taglines for the three. And this way we have new abbreviations for these projects. CWC/Chronicles, TSA/Ascention, TDR/Redemption. But again, the finalized titles are simply:

  • Star Wars
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • Return of the Jedi

EDIT: Oh and it's also going to made so you can watch it Back to Back as one film in essence.

Do you think it's necessary to keep the crawls in these films?
It sounds like it could be confusing seeing the ANH crawl after a scene from AOTC. I see it this way: why would you only explain the story of ANH, but not the story of AOTC? I think the films work just fine without the crawl and if you're going for a back to back experience anyway...
What are your thoughts on this?

The poster looked good. Though I think it does need another title than just "star wars", how else are we supposed to know it's a different film? Projects as 'revisited' and 'reborn' also had a small extra title.

I'm going to add "The Clone Wars Chronicles" at the top for the project title for our convenience. But the title IN the film will only be Star Wars. Also I was thinking we just do a sort of opening titles thing explaining the backstory of AOTC before that scene and after the Padme scene we have the titles explaining ANH, the way it was done in Gladiator. This way it will reflect the titles used in the prologue as well.

I just recently received SW:Revisited and I'm getting my new computer in about two weeks.

So an update on titles:

They will all be called by their theatrical names followed by "Renascent" (Star Wars: Renascent, EBS: Renascent etc)

They will all have taglines:

  • The Clone Wars Narration
  • The Sith Ascension
  • The Dark Redemption

As you can see they all end in a similar sounding word and begin with the article "The". Also, I've completed the final poster and have decided to remove it and release a Teaser poster instead once I purchase my new computer (probably some time this week) and it will have a release time included with it.

Sounds interesting. I've always thought a "Highlander" version of Star Wars would be cool, with the OT as the main story but using key sections of the PT as flashbacks to flesh it out more.

I've even considered trying to tackle it myself, trying to maybe streamline it all into one 3 hour epic movie, but I'm not sure how much I could squish it to make a coherent narrative out of 6 films.

I saw it a while ago. I'll be doing something very similar. Only the original idea doesn't come from this, it comes from the ROTJ novelization. Anyways, I got big news...

 

 

After much consideration and meditation, I've decided I'll be changing most of the music from the films. This isn't a "ORIGINAL!!!! OMGZ!" project. It's a reinvention, a rebirth. A Renascence. So that said, I've got gigs upon gigs of music selections. A lot of the music will be from Hans Zimmer and there will also be music from Immediate Music aswell as some music from a few video games. That's not to say I will be removing ALL of the Star War music (music staying: Opening Crawl, Closing Credits, Empire/Dark Side theme, Jedi/Force theme, Across the Stars) some stuff will stay and be recycled into different places as well. With the scenes cutting back and forth, the atmosphere of the film might get a little messed up so I'm going to make the emotions of the scenes stick out a lot more by using the music.

Please don't use too much of Zimmer... all the soundtracks he's worked on the last few years sound identical. It's getting annoying really.

Too bad the kiss is gone, it's such a funny moment... but I can understand it has no real use in this project.

I'm using the pieces from Zimmer that are short and vitually unidentifiable and stuff from his exapanded soundtracks. For example, if I use a small piece from Gladiator, it won't be any of the main themes.

hey, long time reader, first time poster

i have been following the reborn idear for some time now, and i am very happy to see this getting picked up.

So anyway, Asteroid-Man, are you going to cut out the entire "chosen one"  thing from a new hope?

I know that Return of jedi, is a long way ahead, but have you thought about opening it with the scene from episode one, where the council is testing Anakin for the first time? I know that it's completly up to you, is just something i was curious about
