The Prequel Radical Redux Ideas Thread
Time

I think if you’re going to have Padme give birth, it should be Luke she gives birth only in ROTS, then edit it to where we see Yoda, Bail and Obi-wan sitting down talking, but have them mention just the boy.

If you wanted too, you could do a flashback to Padme giving birth to Leia, when Luke finds out from Obi-wan that Leia is his sister, with a voice over by Sir Alec Guinness.

[Showing Leia being born] "The other, Yoda spoke of, is your twin sister…to protect you both from the Emperor…you were hidden… [showing Bail Organa with his wife on Alderaan.] “That’s why your sister remains safely anonymous.”

I also wouldn’t show her death in ROTS, I would have left her in a coma and sent her to Alderaan with Bail Organa and Leia. She could be like sleeping beauty in a chamber and her daughter could see her, but that’s it.

I would like to see somebody do this in a edit for Return of the Jedi, or at least just that scene.

EA Battlefront as a source of new footage.
Time

I think Tarkin looked better than Leia. She was just a little off when it came to some of her facial movements, that’s because it wasn’t really her. When she smiled, you could tell something was off. They did a great job though. I know it’s really hard work, lots of hours and days went into getting it to that point.

As far as the topic, no, you shouldn’t add game footage to any films. It doesn’t look right in my opinion.

ROGUE TWO - fanedit idea
Time

I thought so at first, but then, I saw what he was wearing and knew Biggs wears a cape. He wears more nicer clothes, as you can see in the deleted scenes.

There’s so many possibilities for more stories in this universe.

Boba Fett after the Sarlaac Pit and/or the bounty hunters film.

Knights of the Old Republic.

A Yoda origin film.

Ben Kenobi

A Qui-gon Jinn origin film.

ROGUE TWO - fanedit idea
Time

For Rogue 2, when it got to the Luke and Biggs in Anchorhead, I would follow Biggs Darklighter to Bestine, where he meets his contact there, from there, he jumps ship, so to speak, and gets on board with the crew that takes him to Yavin IV. You would have to recast Biggs, but it would be an interesting take, as Luke goes his way, the camera follows Biggs instead starting with Anchorhead and him finally reaching Yavin IV and running into Luke in the hanger. The movie could end with him flying low to the ground as he sees the ship he arrived in, and one of the crew members, as they wave goodbye as he banks his ship toward the Death Star.

That would be my ideal R2 or Rogue 2, Rogue too 😃

STAR WARS: EP V &quot;REVISITED EDITION&quot;<strong>ADYWAN</strong> - <strong>AVAILABLE NOW</strong>

I would look at the puppet and try and get as close to that as possible, like matting the fur down and making it look frozen (hairspray maybe) in some areas.

It is just a movie, maybe we all are taking this a little too serious, I think he did an outstanding job with everything he’s done so far.

It would be cool to see somebody complete a suit for a 8 foot man with 12 inch heel shoes, that would make him 9 feet tall. Get a few fans with some Hoth Rebel clothing and gear, and grab a camera and shoot something with the Wampa chasing them. All you do is add the special effects, some NEW shots of C-3PO and R2-D2, all you need are their costumes, as well as snowtroopers, stormtroopers and Vader.

Then, you can create something that was realized, but ultimately discarded due to it looking too fake, budget restraints and poor animation technology. You have the head of the Wampa now. Somebody make a fan film. I would do it myself, but, as we all know, it costs money, lots of money. I do know how I would shoot the film, and I would make the Wampa scary as hell too.

I’m sorry, but I would love to see a new scene with the Wampa. I know it will never happen, but, I get excited about this kind of thing. I know it can be done. This would be awesome to see.

YouTube/Vimeo/etc... Star Wars finds

You know, I’m sure Mark Hamill had his vision of what Episode VII was, and it wasn’t even close to what he probably wanted. The same goes for George Lucas, a totally different version than what we got on the screen. You ask anybody, and we all had different versions play out in our heads, that didn’t even come close to what we thought it would be like. You can’t make everyone happy, it’s impossible. I think Mark was just pointing this out to everyone, and it’s true what he said.

Star Wars Episode 8 Art

Here’s one I did of Luke Skywalker and Leia from the Vanity Fair shoot. I thought the picture would look better if her eyes were closed, so I experimented with the photo and came up with this. Let me know what you think. I mean no disrespect, and I hope I didn’t over step the boundaries here.

Here’s a better version, I fixed the shading around her eyelids to make it feel more realistic. I think they were too bright, so I darkened them a bit.

Extreme Prequel Plot Holes And Inconsistencies
Time

What if Lucasfilm decides to do the Ben Kenobi film, and in the film he meets up with Vader, which is how he now knows “He is more machine now, than man…twisted and evil.” How did he know what he looked like or what he was made of? Was it his presence? Did he hear rumors of Vader and assumed it was Anakin?

He has to meet him in the new film, and he has to mention to Vader that he has his lightsaber, which Vader could say, “I want my son to have it.” that could fix one continuity error. But, then there’s another error. Vader says, “When I left you, I was but a learner, now I am the master.” so I guess that wouldn’t work would it.

4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

I love the Original films, I grew up with them, so I know your pain. However, I did like certain things that were fixed by George, NOT ALL of them, just a few things. He did go overboard, if you will, I do agree with that. If there could be a way or a person to go in and take certain things out, return the Han shot first, removed the “Nooooo!!!” and kept some other things in there, removed the bad stuff, I would be very happy. I wish there was a way to pick and choose while watching it.

RotJ ending:
Sebastian Shaw Anakin *
Hayden Christensen Anakin

Perhaps they (Disney/Fox) can make this happen someday, who knows. If not, I will have to make my own edit, just like every other fan here.

The door on the pod C3PO and R2 come out of flashes rainbow colors.
Yoda in ESB and ROTJ is replaced with The Phantom Menace puppet version.
Boba Fett’s voice is replaced with Daniel Logan’s
Jake LLoyd replaces Sebastian Shaw
All of Darth Vader’s dialogue is changed to “No”.

No, all of Darth Vader’s dialogue is Jake Lloyd’s dialogue “Yippeee!”

or how about the gunners fire on the escape pod that R2 and C-3PO are in, and the movie ends there.

Right. We are not giving them directions or writing a contract. We are hoping to raise awareness and increase discussion, and despite low chances of success, hoping that we might get some kind of information. A comment that is less worthless/ambiguous than the recent Kennedy interview.

If, someday, they release a 2k OOT (first of all, I would still be thrilled), it won’t be because, "hah! You ****ers should’ve specified 4K! Gotcha!"
I know people still feel burned about GOUT, but that didn’t happen due to a misunderstanding.

I don’t think Lucasfilm will release the theatrical releases on Blue-ray, at least as long as Kennedy is president. Because of her relationship to George Lucas and him appointing her president, she doesn’t want to touch what she sees as “his movies”.

And if it does ever happen, it wont be until 2020, when Disney gets the distribution rights to Episodes 5 & 6.

Getting Star Wars fans talking about it can’t hurt though.

She wouldn’t be doing anything to his movies, though. She would simply be including the original versions alongside his versions. EDIT: crissrudd beat me to it.

Welcome to the forums, btw!

Thanks for the welcome 😃

Lucas has said that, to him, the original releases don’t exist anymore, the current versions are THE movies and he talked how he wants that to be the only version that people see and how eventually all the VHS tapes of the old version will burn out and be thrown away. He underestimates the power of the internet and passionate fans.

So it seems to me like Lucas doesn’t want people watching the theatrical releases, and Kennedy is going to honor his wish.

But Kennedy is 63 years old, and will retire or change jobs within the next decade or two, so the new blood that steps in could have a different stance.

It will likely be John Knoll stepping up as CEO of Lucasfilm, once Kathleen retires.

What was your impression of the prequels before they announced the PT?
Time

I feel George should have started with “The Beginning” and showed Anakin at around 13, just a little older would have been better. Then he could have gone on to Episode I-III with an older Anakin, which would have given more time to see that friendship actually have a beginning, a middle and an end. There also could have been more adventures and given the actors more to work with. George shouldn’t have written the screenplays, should have wrote the story, but not the script. I actually thought the Prequels would mostly be on location, like most of the original trilogy. I hate green screen, it is so obvious and bland, I understand why, but, George should have shot the desert scenes, ALL of them, on location.

I’m getting side tracked, sorry. I thought we would see Anakin meeting Obi-wan, them fighting in the Clone Wars, much like Rogue One, a ground battle on location with Jedi and clones. I would have preferred that Padme had lived, so that Leia actually remembers her real mother.

The fight scene in Revenge of the Sith is almost exactly how I imagined it, but I thought he would actually fall INTO the volcano, and crawl out barely alive, or get spewed out by the volcano as he falls in.

I liked the Emperor, for the most part, I wouldn’t have had him cackling and making bad puns with Yoda. I would have kept it serious and dramatic all the way.

I thought we would get suited Vader at the end of Episode II, the trailers fooled us, they had his breathing trailer for Episode II, so I thought he would turn into Vader at the end. Then we would get suited Vader all for Episode III, hunting the Jedi Knights down. I also thought Episode III was going to be called “The Dark Times” or something like that.

Who thought we were going to see Vader at the end of Episode II as well?

I know, I wish I could make it one way or the other. I can draw, but, I don’t have the time or materials to take on such a project at the moment. Maybe someday I can, but currently, I can’t.

I would love to put something together, once this trilogy is completed, like what Struzan did with the Special Edition posters.

I am working on a blu-ray sequel set of VII-IX, just waiting for more pics from VIII, so that maybe I can finish it. It’s about 85% complete now.

Thank you for critiquing the pic, I thought the same thing too.

The original was done by Blake Armstrong, I believe, give credit where credit is due, he did a fine job with what resources he had at the time he did it, which was way before everything like on set photos of actors in costume, so he did a fantastic job.

Here’s is the link to the older Han. I’m going to go back to this picture and see if I can add a couple more things, but they will be faded, so you will barely make it out, I don’t want to ruin it, but I want to see what I can do, to make it better, if you will.
