The SW Saga: Ender's Cut
Time

Well I’m going to be doing frame by frame. Right now, I’m trying a combination of keyframes and chroma key for it. Some stationary shots will just be painted manually and rotoscoped.

Here’s something I started on. I’m trying to reinforce the red/blue color dichotomy, since the actual films are over the place with the color palette. Since Palps is a Sith, he should have red…things, whatever they are, not blue ones. Also, I’d kinda like to give Vader red eyes (something which has become rather fashionable recently, what with Rebels and RO) (they match his lightsaber!), but it’d be too much work.

Now if only Dooku didn’t look like he was in a PS2 game.

I’ve already made a similar shot of Dooku’s hologram on the ship, though I haven’t animated him. My problem is getting the Queen to say her Padme’s AotC lines onscreen. What are you doing with the Queen’s lines?

The fact that there was basically NOTHING to celebrate Star Wars’ 40th birthday is a bit sad.

For comparison, Doctor Who at 40 had been off the air for 14 years, save for one TV movie, yet it still got a whole documentary and an animated webcast to celebrate its 40th anniversary. Star Wars is more popular than Doctor Who, so you’d think it would’ve been a big deal. Then again, Star Trek Beyond’s marketing did not make a single mention of the franchise’s anniversary, so I guess studios think people don’t care about franchise anniversaries.

Things that you would like to see in Star Wars that have not happened

Anyway, I’d like to see archaeology in a Star Wars movie.

This reminds me of a story idea I posted in another thread some years ago.

Two Jedi archaeologists – a master and his newly appointed apprentice – are sent to serve as consultants on a remote backwater planet where the ruins of a long extinct civilization have been unearthed. Apparently, this civilization wiped itself millions of years ago after succumbing to some bizarre pandemic which caused them all to develop conflicting memories about themselves, their peers, and the history of their world, driving them to homicidal madness in the process.

As the archaeological team digs deeper and deeper into the ruins, they, too, begin to suffer from the madness which wiped out this lost civilization, recalling conflicting memories about themselves, their peers, and the universe around them.

Eventually, it is discovered that this plague of madness is caused by some bizarre orb buried at the heart of the ruins – an orb which serves as a window into the multiverse. Anyone who gets too close to the orb and its emanations gains the memories of their counterparts in other timelines, driving them insane in the process.

In the end, the Jedi master sacrifices himself by merging with the orb, defeating it in the process. His apprentice, who suffered prolonged exposure to the radiations of the orb, is left insane, unable to distinguish one reality from another, existing in multiple worlds at once.

I still want to see this movie made.

Sounds like a good idea, but maybe not for Star Wars. For some reason, having a multiverse in SW just feels wrong.

The first thing that came to my mind was: wow. This is a fascinating project idea. One of the things that has frustrated me with Star Wars is the real-life time gaps between each trilogy. Lucas lost a lot of his vision and stamina when creating the prequels. The sequel trilogy suffers from lack of clear direction by Disney and Lucas leaving. I have been looking around for fan-edits that treat Star Wars as the multi-part epic that it deserves to be. Sadly, no one person has been able to edit all the movies. Your doing so allows for consistent vision and direction that has been lacking in the transitions from the PT to OT to ST.

Yeah, the ST feels kinda like a half-assed “But wait! There’s more!” happy ending override.

Snooker is now the Adywan of the Prequel triolgy.

There’s very little in common. Just about all of Adywan’s changes were technical. He didn’t really touch the story. Snooker is heavily reworking the story.

In terms of setting the mood for a space fantasy, a name like ‘Leia Organa’ is very Space Princess. Luke Skywalker, on the other hand, is quite down to earth while still being a little space-ish. This makes sense when he’s the audience avatar in ANH. When he’s some super magical unicorn space wizard in TFA, putting ‘Luke’ in the crawl still feels to me like he’s a farmboy who hasn’t gotten his Jedi name yet, hence the brother and sister speak.

It also cuts down on the number of terms being name-dropped in the crawl and the potential confusion for first-time viewers of Leia Organa also being a Skywalker also being a Solo.

If new viewers are starting with this one, they’re doing it wrong. It spoils all the twists.

I’m not a fan of saying “Luke’s sister” or “her brother” but oh well what do I know. I really like your crawl except for the final paragraph. I’d switch “a galaxy in peril” to “the galaxy” too, but that’s just me.

Personally I don’t like it because I wish they weren’t related in the first place. But hey, this isn’t a RotJ edit.

I think making the film’s title simply the name of the villains (and ones who will show up in the films that follow) is dumb, not to mention out of place in SW titles. But hey, that’s just my opinion.

Have Obi-Wan tell Luke right away when they first meet that Vader is his father.

While what I meant was that he’d say it when they’re at his home, I realize that my suggestion could be interpreted as the reveal being literally the first thing Obi-Wan says when meeting Luke in the Jundland Wastes, which would be genuinely hilarious as opposed to just being a spoiler (although it would still be that too).

Twilight of the Republic may end up being the title of EP3, because it would be more immediate, however a spoiler in the title is sort of dumb. I don’t know.

I don’t see how the fall of the Republic constitutes a spoiler, given everyone knows about it going in.

As for the new thread, the next update will be a complete restart in all but title. Many of my initial promises are completely different now. It will also be a symbolic change, in my personal confidence. The new thread will hopefully have no empty promises.

Empty promises? So far you’ve been exceeding all expectations.

Will you be scrapping all your previous footage?

That reminds me when someone proved that there is such thing as a wrong viewing order.
