Hello, I am sure most of you have heard of the machete order but if you haven’t I will let this video do the explaining.

We good? Okay now that that’s out of the way. I would love to do a fan edit of all the star wars films to make them seem as if they were originally created to be viewed in the machete order.

Like removing continuity errors, changing the episode numbering (Star War Episode I: A New Hope), fixing the problems of the prequel trilogy, etc.

But for the foreseeable future, my busy schedule won’t give me the time this project would require.

But I thought it would be fun to start coming up with alternative titles and text crawls for this project.

All alternate titles or text crawls you guys come up with would be great but especially so for episodes 2 and 3. Because as the video above states “Episodes 2 and 3 act as a massive flashback” I feel to facilitate this idea the titles and text crawls should be modified to let the viewer know that this is “Before the dark times… before the Empire”.

All you need AotC for is to learn what the Separatists are. Explain it in the crawl to RotS and you could even just cut out AotC.

But anyway, I look forward to seeing this. What stuff would you cut/change/etc to fit the movies better?

The Empire did nothing wrong

Well, this project is very much in its infancy so I don’t have an exact list of things I want to change but my overall goals are two-fold.

  1. To bring the both the characterizations and the plot of these films in line with canon (Similar to NFBisms New Canon Cut).
  2. To edit the films to accentuate the positives of the machete order and cover the negatives as much as possible. (Like when the text crawl says episode 2 when it is the third film in the machete order. I find this distracting and it immediately takes me out of the viewing experience.)
