Thanks for the extensive reply! Hopefully I can bring the three trilogies together and make them more cohesive, but I’m a little worried about it as well 😄

For these reasons I’d prefer to keep Odyssey of Darkness as is, but thanks for your suggestion.

I love this idea about giving Rogue One the “Episode IV” number and increasing the number of the other episodes, as I consider Rogue One to be essential for the OT, but I wonder if this would make things a bit too confusing?

Thanks for pointing out those problems with the demo clips, I think I’ve fixed up the problem with the Boss Nass scene, and I’ll review the ep5 Hoth medbay scene and deleted scene integration when I have time. Hopefully I’ll be able to make the cuts run a bit smoother there. If you find any other errors please let me know 😃

I guess my only reservation about “Odyssey of Darkness” and “Veil of Darkness” is using the word ‘darkness’ twice. Certain things I am a stickler for in titles. Any chance you could change the word ‘darkness’ in one of those movies?

I don’t think Rogue One being Ep. 4 is too confusing. I think you’re changing a lot of stuff that this is far enough removed from the original Star Wars that no one will mind. Rogue One fits well as an episodic movie compared to the likes of Solo: A Star Wars Story, hence why I suggest it. It’s a big part to the story that I feel it’s odd not to have an episode number.

You’re welcome for demo clips suggestions. I know you will do great things with this. Any idea when we might see one of the movies done?

Highly doubt a fanedit can save this movie for me as there’s just so much wrong with TLJ but these are the most promising plans for an edit that I’ve seen so far.

Good luck and God speed Digmod!

I do know what you mean … a lot of the Sequel Trilogy needs narrative restructuring, rather than post-production editing. We should have seen more of the New Republic and their rebirth, as well as the First Order’s growth.

If you go to his wordpress, there is a section that says “Requests”. You have to fill out a google form, I believe.

Thanks mate! I thought that was perhaps for requesting movies for him for future edits. I did not even think to look into that location. lol

No problem, dude. Yeah, it took me a while to figure out how to navigate. DigMod will email you once the Google Form is completed (it’s just for record purposes).

I’m sorry… but where on the page is the link? I’ve been reading through the blog - I’ve actually read through all of your other project pages as well lol - but I cannot seem to see the actual download link on your page.

Is there some way to get the Spanish subtitles of this and/or your other PT edits? Or at least the English subtitles in an independent file so I can translate it myself.

I suggest you PM MalàStrana, who created the subtitles. I am currently working on a final version of these three edits, and he is planning to do subtitles for those as well. I can’t speak for his workflow for this, but it may be that he could provide you with finished (synced) English subtitles and you could translate these to Spanish. That would be a welcome addition to this final version, if you are willing.
So far I have sent him a screener for Episode III so he can sync the subtitles, with Episodes I and II coming after.

Just as a quick note (absolutely love your PT, by the way). When Qui-Gon is talking to Shmi Skywalker about Anakin having special powers and who the father was, there is a very subtle moment when you can hear C3PO saying the word ‘Master Anakin’.

Is there any place that we could find the newest versions of “Cloak Of Deception”, “The Approaching Storm”, and “Labyrinth Of Evil”? The newest version is V5, right?

V5 is not out yet, the newest versions are 4.2. You can check a Reddit post by Hal in r/fanedits and you’ll find what you’re looking for. Or pm him 😄

Thanks friend. 😃 I actually already have those versions. : P Just wondering if I missed a version.

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.

You are making some bold decisions, and, to be honest, I’m stunned, excited, and a little worried. If I understand this correctly, the major changes are that Darth Sidious was not the puppeteer behind the PT; there is only one Death Star in the OT; Luke and Leia never have romantic intimate moments; the New Republic is based on Coruscant; as well as a few others.

I like a lot of the choices for the edits. The Hosnian System was very awkward to introduce, and using Coruscant makes the galaxy feel more at home with the Republic starting back up again. Luke and Leia kissing was an awkward misfortune of not planning ahead. When I was a child, I believed the ANH Death Star was the same one as ROTJ Death Star. I believe this is a smarter choice. It doesn’t feel like a new Death Star came out of nowhere when the first took so long to build. Removing Obi-Wan’s line about “never owning a droid” was a smart choice, as was keeping Padme alive at the end of ROTS.

In terms of the names of the movies, I am curious as to your reasoning for each of them. I would not use “Odyssey of Darkness” for VIII. It sounds similar to “Veil of Darkness” and I am a huge stickler for unique names. I hated VI being Return of the Jedi and then VIII became The Last Jedi – very awkward and poorly chosen, at first glance. Instead of “Odyssey of Darkness” I would go with “Echoes of the Past”. It keeps in-line with numerous moments in the movie being related to the past, but wanting to change it. (I appreciate removing Yoda’s scene entirely from this movie, as an aside)

I believe that Rogue One, as a movie, fits very well with the other three trilogies. In your creation, Galen Erso plays a much bigger role because he affects IV and VI. I think it would be fitting to treat this saga as a ten-part epic, rather than a nine-part epic, in your situation. I suggest making Rogue One into Episode IV in the title crawl. This would shift everything down one so TLJ becomes Episode IX and the real Ep. IX becomes Episode X in your saga. It fits well with your version of the saga.

P.S. I took a quick look at your shared Google Drive folder full of clips. I didn’t notice some edits, which is a good thing. They should be seamless and integrated into the movie. However, “audience with Boss Nass, in the swamp” had a very abrupt and awkward cut at the beginning of the clip as Boss Nass begins talking (At 18 seconds). The scene where Leia originally kisses Luke in the medical bay was difficult to follow. It was jumping around in a number of places and the reintroduction of OT deleted scenes were not very fluid with the scene. I also think it is important to remove the planet in the background of the Rogue One newly-created crawl.

The Last Jedi : Fan Edit Ideas - ** <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong> **
Time

I believe a few things need to be changed:

1 – No DJ, Rose, or Canto Bight – I truly believe we are adding too many characters and not developing them enough.
2 – Luke dying needs to be the ending, rather than the slave boy.
3 – The Yoda scene was rather awkward, and confused the lore on how Force Ghosts could interact with the universe.
4 – Remove the porgs, for the most part.
5 – Give Snoke a line of dialogue about his backstory, but keep the momentum of the throne room scene.
6 – Maybe remove the line about Rey’s parents, but I am fine either way.
7 – Change the title of the movie to remove the word ‘Jedi’ altogether.

Star Wars: Firestorm (The Last Jedi Fan Edit)
Time

EvenSteven said:

  1. Star Wars: Firestorm is the working title. The poster will have the text “The Last Jedi Fan Edit” at the bottom. The title crawl will say Episode VIII FIRESTORM.

  2. DigMod already has his edit with Rey going to Ahch-To. In my edit, the opening to the movie is staying the same with the First Order Fleet attacking the Resistance Base. The only major change in the beginning footage is the removal of the Hux/Poe prank call and the BB-8 whack-a-mole scene.

  3. I am not adding any new lines or footage unless the deleted scenes are amazing AND they don’t have timecodes. I am considering using music tracks from Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Battlefront for certain scenes. The biggest changes to this particular edit are the opening crawl, a quick Canto Bight, color-corrected Yoda, and a new ending shot with Luke.

The Last Jedi already feels bloated and my main concern with the Firestorm edit is to mainly stick to the story and action scenes. I can’t really plug in all the plot holes and dangling threads left by this movie. That job should be handled by a different edit and a far more experienced editor.

I do like your title choice; it is interesting and nice to not have the word ‘Jedi’ in it. I can respect your reasoning to keep things closer to the original movie. I also respect your humility that the plot holes might be addressed in someone else’s edit.

Thank you for all you do!

Star Wars: Firestorm (The Last Jedi Fan Edit)

@EvenSteven Three Things:

1-- What were you going to name the movie? I love the idea of “Star Wars Episode VIII: Firestorm” or, my personal favorite, “Star Wars Episode VIII: Echoes From The Past”. I really appreciate your considering removing the word ‘Jedi’ from the title.

2-- Would you be willing to consider opening the movie as Rey makes her way to Ahch-To. I love the ending that DigMod did where the Millennium Falcon blasts off into space. Opening the movie with Rey, Artoo, and Chewie coming out of hyperspace allows for an artificial addition of time lapse from Ep. VII.

3-- Would you be willing to add ~2 sentences of dialogue to Snoke that gives him some backstory? I had thought he could speak during the throne room scene with Kylo and Rey. We deserve some backstory and I wanted to connect the PT and OT better with the ST by having Snoke know Palpatine. Snoke came out of nowhere as a villain and this is supposed to be a nine-part epic. Adding in dialogue such as this:

“Do you hear that Sheev? I have outlasted you!” Snoke calls to the heavens. “Oh, how our Master would be proud.”

1) Brevity. The lines are short enough that it doesn’t turn into a monologue, and doesn’t ruin the momentum Rian Johnson developed and directed.
2) Tone. These lines are things Snoke would say during that throne room scene, and it fits his arrogance in the moment.
3) Who is he? This explains that Snoke is the student of Darth Plagueis, just like Palpatine was. Palpatine and Snoke knew each other.
4) What has he been doing? Plagueis cared about outwitting, outlasting, and outsurviving. It is a trait he would teach his students. Snoke was waiting out Palpatine.
5) Connection This connects the Sequel Trilogy (because Snoke is in it) with the Original Trilogy (Palpatine is in it) and even the Prequel Trilogy (Palpatine is in it and Plagueis is mentioned).

That’s just because it’s a DVD file (and standard definition).

Just right click the folder with all the files in it (probably a VIDEO_TS folder) and play with VLC. It’ll play as one full length movie.

Is there any way I can save it as one whole movie?

It is one whole movie. Don’t click the individual VOB files, but run the DVD as I said.

What, specifically, do you want to do? Make it into an MKV file? Use the program “Make MKV” for that.

Oh, interesting. Yes, I would like to make it into an MKV file. Thank you for being patient with me; this is not my forte at all. Hopefully your idea works.

EDIT: It worked. Thank you very much!

7 parts, as in 7 video files, or 7 parts as in 7 .rar files?

VTS_51_1.VOB ; VTS_51_2.VOB ; VTS_51_3.VOB ; VTS_51_4.VOB ; VTS_51_5.VOB ; VTS_51_6.VOB ; VTS_51_7.VOB

were part of a larger extracted winrar file. I’m not very good at this stuff, so I am sorry if I am explaining it poorly.

I also tried another option and went to this page: https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/how-to-get-revisited/

and clicked: NTSC DVD-9 8GB

which brought me to mega and had 7 files. I was hoping to find the movie as one video file.
