The puppet is pretty great otherwise, but the mouth is so important for his appearance. It looks like he lost his teeth.

Hence my argument that a muppet should be used for Yoda, but with CGI mouth movements. In fact, I see no reason the same approach couldn’t be taken with a host of characters that are either animatronics or actors with prosthetics. The Nemoidians are examples of the latter, and while they were lame characters anyway, because of the writing, at the very least they would have looked better if their mouths had been animated.

The Neimoidians were originally meant to be CGI using the design that was eventually used for the Geonosians (hence why the battle droids resemble them). However, despite what the special features might have you believe, CGI was not all-powerful in 1999, so they had to make them with masks. Maybe they had simply blown the budget on Watto and the Gungans?

Oh I’ve got nothing wrong with Paja doing any of this. I’m just mystified by the logic behind the particular changes. They’re certainly not changes I would’ve made, but that’s fine.

I don’t get the reasoning behind any of these color changes. I prefer the original in pretty much every one. The one after Dooku’s death particularly annoys me because it does the complete opposite of what I’m doing in my edits. It switches the panels from red to blue, presumably to match the Emperor’s throne room, whereas I switched the Emperor’s throne room panels from blue to red to reflect his affiliation with the dark side.

I half-jokingly wondered if somebody had used this app for porno purposes. Then my curiosity got the better of me. Now I need therapy. The things I’ve seen should not be seen.

It’s like the plot of the second X-Files movie only with computers performing the surgery. What the hell is wrong with people?! How can THAT possibly be erotic?

Sweet Christmas.

Wow…just wow…

Don’t look! Don’t any of you look! Just trust me, it’s all kinds of wrong.

You’re weeks too late with this warning.

I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Big, sad emojiface.

Should’ve just put a gif of the Tenth Doctor.

I feel like the smaller superlaser is simply the obvious way forward. Think of the First Order Dreadnought. It’d be something along those lines. About as powerful as one of the Death Star’s many lasers.

Also I think the shortest I would let the film be is 1h 50m. The hardest part will be keeping the Jabba part long enough.

Really, if cutting filler isn’t your priority, the Jabba part should be the easiest to keep long enough. I say leave alone until everything else is done and cut accordingly afterwards.

As for the purpose of the Endor bunker, I think it should be a planetary shield around Coruscant Had Abbadon like the one around Scarif in RO. I just don’t see any better of implementing Had Abbadon. The thing is you’d have to give them a target there. Personally, I’d like to move the throne room there for my edit (in the Jedi High Council’s tower of the Jedi Temple, specifically), but it would be a rotoscoping nightmare. If I ever were to do it, though, I would replace the stars with a greenscreen for everyone to use.

Btw, I just realized Coruscant is like croissant.

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

Here’s another idea I have in mind. A SW story that takes place in the distant future, the state of the Galaxy, wether it’s being ruled by an evil Empire or the Republic managed to pull through is kept deliberately vague, the Jedi are but a rumour, and it’s unclear if Rey’s efforts to restore the Jedi Order were successful or not, thus many Force-wielders are largely self-taught, with some using the Force to help others much in the same spirit the ancient Jedi used to do and others for self-gain, managing to become rulers of planets and even entire star systems. The knowledge of lightsaber construction has been lost for the most part, thus making them a rare sight in the Galaxy.
And here I’d introduce a bounty hunter as the progatonist who is secretely a Force wielder, alternating between the light and the dark.

Please no. I’ve had enough of the Jedi being extinct. Two purges is too much. You already have two eras to play around with that idea.

Here what i would say in the crawl.

Episode 6 Revenge of The Jedi

The Rebellion Needs Han Solo To Survive! Meanwhile Vader and The Empire Are Searching to the end of the galaxy for Luke Skywalker after he slipped thorough the Fingers Of Lord Vader.

2 Months After The Shocking betrayal at the hands of Lando Calrissian. Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine and is Waiting for The arrival of the Millennium Falcon. Luke Skywalker and The Rebellion had just finished there preparations to rescue the charming Han Solo from
The Evil Gangster Jaba the Hutt…

I strongly disapprove on putting the blame on Lando for the Han’s capture. He was being held at metaphorical gunpoint and ordered to betray the Rebels.

My opinion on deleted scenes unless it pushes the overall story don’t put it in the movie.

I see them as events that canonically happened (unless they directly contradict other scenes) which the director decided weren’t needed from a storytelling perspective. Just like any other scene in the movie, a faneditor may chose to leave it out.

I can’t wait to see your progress on this edit! IMO, Return of the Jedi needs some major tweaks in order for it stand up to the other two movies in the trilogy, and by the looks of it your edit might make this film as good as it deserves to be!

FTFM

I’ve been thinking about how to give Obi-Wan a more important role while on Tatooine and I think I’m finally onto something, but I’m gonna need adivce on the specifics. So picture this: after recieving a holographic message from Naboo saying to contact the Naboo, Obi-Wan says it’s a trick, like in the movie. However, we then cut to Obi-Wan sitting in the ship’s control room thinking, with an audio flashback to something relevant someone said earlier in the movie. Also, we can totally replace Bibble with Dooku, or anybody else, for that matter, to change the context. Any ideas on how specifically to go about this?

Maybe you can rework the actual ST into a sequel to this, with Luke vanishing in his search for his sister. Though he doesn’t find her, he finds her daughter Rey. It’s an idea I toyed with for my own edits, but eventually decided it deviated to far from canon, not to mention it robs Rey of her powerful backstory of being not related to anyone famous. However, since this edit clearly doesn’t care for canon in the slightest, I’d say it would be a good idea for it.

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.
