What Prequel edits add the most DELETED content?

I’m looking for opinions on edits that specifically add deleted content to the prequels. Or any story and character content, really, but for the prequels I think that means it’s just deleted scenes, unless someone was clever enough to slip in scenes from like video games or audiobooks.

Many edits do great things like improve the FX or music, but I’m just interested in deleted scenes and story.

A lot of the deleted scenes from the prequels contained a lot of really good universe-building material, like the formation of the rebellion, or just Padme chatting with her family in AOTC. These little scenes made the universe bigger than just Obi-Wan and Anakin’s adventures.

So, does anyone have any opinions on the (subjectively, no offense to any other edits) best edits that include deleted material?

A lot of prequel edits add in deleted scenes, but they also cut scenes and trim them throughout.

I’d recommend checking out HAL 9000’s edits, which include several deleted scenes for each film (this especially helps AOTC), or l8wrtr’s, which might be a better choice for you for ROTS, since you seem to want as little cut as possible, and HAL cut the Yoda/Palpatine fight entirely (l8wrtr left it in).

Thank you for this. However, it seems like his project is still in progress, so I’ll need an actual complete one.

Thank you for this recommendation. What would you say is the main difference for l8wrtr’s?

HAL cuts the Yoda/Sidious duel entirely and changes the ending so Padme lives.

L8wrtr preserves the duel and keeps Padme’s death as is.

You can compare them on IFDB, and look at other prequel edits and check out their change lists:

L8wrtr’s Ep3
HAL’s Ep3

Thank you for your reply. I have read the info there.

So far, it seems like :

Hal 9000’s Episode 2
L8wrtr’s Episode 3

Is the way to go.

But what edit adds the most to Phantom Menace? Hal 9000’s PM adds 2 scenes but it cuts so much.
