A sensible Han Solo rescue attempt plan...
Time

I’m currently thinking on a way to cut out the bargaining with Jabba scene to go straight to the rescue attempt on Han. But I do not know where to cut straight to the outside matte of Jabba’s Palace. So where should I cut?

It’s actually stitched-in with the blu-ray due to the unnatural colors. The only parts that were left in is some Endor scenes, the entire Sarlacc Pit fight and that’s about it.

I am still working on my ROTJ Edit, and though I really loved that idea of the release of harmful sedatives that Leia sets on the main room, I completely ditched that idea due to lacking scenes.

A sensible Han Solo rescue attempt plan...
Time

Hi everyone! I am working on a ROTJ edit that helps strengthen the first and third act of the film. Now, since this is in the early works there is not cutlist yet. But after tinkering around with other movies for quite some time, I would make a leap to start a fanedit. I just reposted this from fanedit.org just to get more attention. Hope this can be improved.

Here is my (very early concept) plan for Han’s rescue attempt, since the original plan (or would it even a plan) made no sense and relied too much on luck, or the Force perhaps.
Now, this is pretty much a bunch of failsafes, but hopefully It might be improved upon.

Before we get into this, we must have knowledge that Lando, Chewbacca and Leia are in the palace and giving the inside information to Luke.

The preliminary plan: Artoo and Threepio are gifted as messengers to Jabba and R2-D2 displays a hologram of Luke pleading to settle a deal with Jabba, in turn giving Han Solo back. Now, Luke knew Jabba wouldn’t let him off the hook that easy, so he smuggled a lightsaber in R2-D2 that would later come in handy for Plan B.

Since Jabba did not accept his request, but took the two droids, plan B would have to established.

Plan B: Luke would enter Jabba’s palace to mind-trick him to giving back Solo, and if that would not work, then he would need to kill Jabba.

During the execution of the actual plan, Leia had her own plan as well. She would make use of harmful sedatives that would later on, be released into the main room. She would also make use of her helmet, which had a double-purpose of being a gas-mask. She would then sneak across the room and un-freeze Han from the carbonite. She would also let Chewbacca wait outside to get Han and the droids, however it failed miserably. She and Chewie were later caught and Leia was forced to wear a suit that would be engraved into each Star Wars fan’s brain for the rest of their lives.

Lando told Luke about this and he was forced to modify his Plan B. Using the information that was gathered by both Lando and Leia, he had to become a prisoner, and be sent to the Sarlacc Pit just to fight to the death.

Since Luke also once lived in Tatooine he totally would have known about Jabba and his public executions at the Sarlacc Pit. This knowledge gave more advantage to him when he actually would have to be thrown in the pit himself.

This plan wouldn’t have been put up so easily without some people who have indirectly helped me make an edit as ambitious as this. Those people are NeverarGreat, nhoj3, ray_afraid, jarbear and other people who attempted to make ROTJ a great film before me.

If you are using the theatrical Sarlacc Pit and adding tentacles, I have a small suggestion that I would like to see fixed is, when one of the skiff guards fall into the pit, the walls of its mouth move in a latex or cloth-like fashion, which either slightly or completely takes down the assumption that the Sarlacc is a real creature and makes it look more of a prop.
