4K restoration on Star Wars
Time

Also interesting to hear Lucas talking about the prequels 7 years before TPM, because the movies are exactly what he explained they would be (at the exception of “not being too different”, because they are quite different but still infused with the Star Wars spirit).

Han Solo Movie ** <em>Spoilers</em> **

As it is, we have a film that restores the force as a mystical energy field created by “the force of others”. We have Kyber crystals playing a role. The Whils are part of the universe.

Everything is true. All of it. Even if I despise the movie, it was great to see a complementary take on this matter (things Lucas wrote and forgot about for some reasons). I don’t think it pays off in the finished movie but it gave Rogue One a… little something. I now hope they (lucasfilm) go to another level and make a worthy addition to the saga (and I mean the saga as a whole, from I to IX - yep, even VII-VIII-IX, it might still be a “good” trilogy, we don’t know for sure yet -, since I don’t think the prequels are that bad compared to the new movies), by getting back in time => Old Republic & Jedi Order vs Mandalore & Sith Empire, please ! (ask Guillermo Del Toro, give him full power on the project, and I want Ron Perlman as a SW vilain as well !).

What do you guys think?

Well, I think that Rogue One is, by far and without contest, the worst Star Wars ever, so I wouldn’t want this awful movie as Episode III. And I really like Episode III the way it was released in theater (even if I prefer solid fanedits of it to remove the little bits I don’t like). Even Episode II is way better than Rogue One (!). And even with not perfect movies I like the “2 trilogies” structure developed by Lucas with his 6 movies saga, something you would completely lose by cutting down them to 5 movies with the terrible (which doesn’t add anything of value) Rogue One inserted into it.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Extended Edition

Keeping the Yoda scene and the war room can only be done by removing the end of the scene (which could actually work fine).

@Octorox, your edit is going to use Yoda vs Sidious I guess ? Having rewatched it today, there is definitely some (very) good stuff in it (visually it’s still stunning). In fact only the very beginning - “not if anything to say I have” - and the crazy laugh at the end are problematic… making the assumption you don’t have an issue with Yoda fighting with a saber, of course ! (Yoda going McClane in the pipe is still embarrassing though…)

-A Plot to Destroy the Jedi?

I agree there is a repetitive aspect to this scene with the “situation room during Grievous meeting with Obi” scene, but there is also a more layered concern about Palpatine. This scene, placed after the - long - overture was very good to set the mood of an uprising coup d’état from Palpatine. I think you should have inserted it (but I assume you’ll do that for your “real” edit of Episode III).

You’re right actually, the last front used by Hal is the best (but don’t remind him that Sir Ridely’s front are even better 😄). But if Smudger9 is willing to deliver a v2 of his edits I hope he addresses more important issues than just the front of the opening crawl.

and the First Order preparing to rearm and target the Resistance base afterward.

Isn’t the edited Snoke and Hux scene “And now… the Republic” going to be implemented in restructured v2 ?

I concur. It’s fantastic (it kinda reminds me of the best scene of Episode III). I’m also very pleased to read that other fanedits are going to use the restructured version as a base, this is such an improvement over the theatrical cut (I’ll just need to “merge” Sir Ridley’s, DigMod’s and NeverarGreat’s edits to get the “perfect cut” of VII according to my taste 😄).

You keep using that pic. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

It just means she didn’t understand it at first and now she’s just trolling…as always.

Yeah yeah sure 😄 You’re such a joke man, you should stick to your usual shitposting and stop pretending to be smart, but still it’s quite funny to have an old angry guy who believes he’s funny such as you on every page of every thread 😉

And for changing the script, what about The Blackened Mantle?

It’s called writing new subtitles that don’t translate what’s being said…

Oh okay. So it doesn’t count because… reasons, I suppose.

Oh you went back to your post a few days later to add a real comment besides the - not quite properly used - pic ?

Ok then, so just tell me : japanese is a real language, isn’t it ? Not something created for an edit, right ? So if you edit a movie (or 3 movies) with untouched dialogues in japanese and just add subtitles that don’t translate them but tell another story, is it fanediting or something else ? (such as “fanwriting”, what Durathislol does I guess). Can a japanese watch The Blackened Mantle and say “oh, the script is changed, this is cool” or is he going to think “what the fuck is going on here ? Why are 3 movies mixed up with no sense at all ?”. So “it doesn’t count because… reason” I just gave you. You’re very much welcome 😄

Anyway, you were however right about the fact that script can be - slightly - changed through editing. But sometimes it requires a little bit more (Hal9000 Episode 7 restructure requires new sfx shots and even a new dialogue - “they have found us” - to work, so it goes beyond editing).
