What was Jar Jar’s character though? That he stepped in the poopie? What was Qui-Gon’s? He was a cheater and made terrible choices? They’re written as flat, simplistic stereotypes without any further development. You could leave them both on the cutting room floor without impacting the plot. Fabulous what now? There’s only so much you can discuss without sounding like a joke account.

Anakin appears as himself as he should have been by that point in his life. His redemption carries through to the Force-afterlife. When he was redeemed and lay dying in Luke’s arms, he was Anakin again, and Vader was no more.

In way, Vader is the mask itself. Once it came off, he was human again. So Shaw’s face is integral to the scene and the ending.

The movie is always called Star Wars. The title crawl isn’t relevant, only what the poster art says. There’s no giant number IV on the cover of any release I care to watch.

Don’t bring back any characters except Anakin, Obi-Wan and Palpatine. Avoid other OT characters. Write a space adventure story. Forget all that crap about shooting digital. Hint at a romance between Anakin and another Jedi, but don’t show it to save the ESB reveal. Think up new and actual good ideas about the Jedi order and the Force instead of making a big mess. Spell it Kloa’ne Wars or something so we can have an interesting storyline.

Okay so this may be a fake memory type of thing, but has Moff Jerjerrod ever said ‘we shall redouble our efforts’ ? I sometimes still think about this in that opening scene.

DNR and motion smoothing was mostly a problem with older blu-rays, and not quite so much anymore.

Sure but copies do exist in some places, and they can be re-released in box sets. In some cases it’s hard to know what you’re getting. Motion smoothing is a more recent problem with TV sets I believe, it was in that Twitter campaign by James Gunn just a few months back.

Digital = new = better. DNR and motion smoothing cater to that mindset. While on the other side of the coin you have those who don’t even understand what Blu-ray means. So if anyone’s expecting the people that made the last few Star Wars home releases top sellers to care about the theatrical cuts being released, they’re probably kidding themselves.

Yeah something like that. I would put the URL on the back personally but it’s your project dude.

Nice idea. Make the numbers a bigger part of the design so it looks like one of those vague Last Exit shirts and you’ll have a winner.
