Have you considered extending Rey’s force vision which she gets after picking up the Lightsaber? In the novelization, it was suppose to start with Rey seeing from a distance Luke and Vader’s Bespin duel, and you can see remnants of that with the collapsing hallway in the vision which is the Bespin Cloud City Hallway. It’d be kind of interesting if you could somehow work that back in.
Something I wish, and this applies to both the TFA and this movie, but I wish we could somehow replace the starfighters in the films so there not just a copy and past of X-Wing and Tie-Fighters again. I know that’s completely unrealistic, unless the person who does that is Adywan (at this point, I honestly think he could do anything), but I wish we could have gotten something more for example like this for the Resistance:

And this for the First Order, if we got instead the original design they almost used, as shown in this concept art:
Now I acknowledge that reasonably, the only person who could maybe make this happen is Adywan, so it’s probably an unreasonable idea, but still. I continue to find it ridiculous that it’s essentially just X-Wings and Tie-Fighters again. I love those designs, they are a huge part of my childhood, but their presence just feels lazy and part of me wonders if there would have been as much comparisons on the TFA and A New Hope if not for them.

One thing I would like to see, and I don’t know if this has been mentioned, was the alternate opening deleted scene that was featured in the 2011 Blu Ray, where Vader after arriving on the Death Star, tries to contact Luke, and Luke is building his lightsaber. Since seeing that for the first time I’ve always felt Lucas messed up by not including it.
Any plans to include this fanedit on Fanedit.org?
You could keep that approach and also make Geonosis Tatooine.
After the dust of war has settled his mother is dead he is too busy doing his duty as a Jedi to do his duty as a son (the beginning of his resentment towards the Jedi).
Ending on her funeral instead of his wedding would pack more of a punch than ending TPM with Qui-Gon's.
Shmi is one of the few truly sympathetic characters in the PT much more than Qui-Gon. Indeed with Padme's in ROTS the saga plays out as Four Funerals and a Wedding.
It would serve as a better 'they rhyme' moment with Anakin's pyre in ROTJ.
I actually quiet like that idea. Ending with Shmi's funeral does pack a bit more of a punch, although it might be weird since R2 does come to tell Anakin of Obi-Wan message during the funeral.
By the way, has Adywan decide whether or not he's going to alter Anakin's voice to make it deeper? I think Anakin's voice might need to be altered at the very least in some way. Also if Adywan does plan to keep Jar Jar in some capacity, does he plan to either alter his voice or create some type of language that the gungans speak?
Another cool thing I found that's somewhat similar http://swremixed.deviantart.com/gallery/. Kinda like some of the designs. Angel's pics are cool too.
I'd like to see Fett just blast his way out of the sarlacc in the end. The way they handled Fett in ROTJ was too much of a joke.
I have a question though. I know Adywan stated he would have no mentions of the Expanded Universe, but I'd still like to see some possible nods to perhaps the Thrawn Trilogy. Through be told it was one of the few good things in the Expanded Universe, and you can always use the audio from the ROTJ radioplay which features Mara Jade under the guise of Arica or even a mention to Grand Admiral Thrawn. I personally think that it would be kind of cool to see. This mostly came about because I just finished rereading the whole Thrawn Trilogy and decided to mention it.
The prequels need a lot of work, especially the first two. Although I thought Episode III was somewhat likeable.
I would have perfered however that in Episode III, you should have Anakin not kill the younglings. Make it so that is turn is not yet complete and he still has doubts. That way he still has some obvious good in him. Anakin spares the younglings, but they are tragically killed by the clones. Later on at Mustafar, Padme is able to calm him down and able talk him into leaving the dark side, but when Obi-Wan shows up, having snuck on the ship, Anakin gets furious, and the same thing happens as in the movie. This way when Vader is told that he killed his wife, it is essentially the end of any and all good in Anakin, until his son Luke can bring him back.
I don't agree. The Original Trilogy's protagonist was Luke Skywalker. That was one protagonist for three films. I really believe that the prequels should have only one protagonist.
Although I wonder if Adywan can somehow add Obi-Wan to going with Qui-Gon to Tatooine. That will likely be impossible, but it would be cool if he could somehow do it.
I'd really like to see Obi-Wan become the protaganist of the Adywan Prequel trilogy. That way Episode IV can be a passing of the torch between Obi-Wan and Luke.
"May the Midiclorians be with you."
That would have sucked.
A good source to get lines from for Epiosde III would be from the Episode II video game that came along with the movie. Al lot of the lines in the game are different then the ones used in the movie. Most of the characters were voiced by the same actors from the movie. Specifically Hayden and Ewan. Could always be useful. Especially with the duel between Anakin and Obi-Wan. The lines in the game differ drastically from the movie duel.
Also, I agree with Bingowings statement above.
It doesn't have to be Maul, but they definitely need more tension in the Tatooine scenes. It should seem like their in a hurry.
Also, if the need ever arises and Adywan finishes the prequel trilogy, presumably around 2019 or 2020, does Adywan plan to do his own version of the sequel trilogy?

I want to see a more focus on Obi-Wan. He show technically be the main character of the prequels. That way Episode IV can be a sort of passing of the torch to Luke Skywalker. Anakin's fall should be a subplot. I want to see a focus on Obi-Wan.
Also, can you change the opening to Episode I somehow to make it much more exciting. Episode IV began with a Star Destroyer attacking Tantive IV. Epiosde I should begin with something to catch your interest. Perhaps somehow starting the film with Darth Maul, similar to how Episode VI started with Vader, and then move to Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon going to the Trade Federation ship.
When the Jedi and the Queen escape to Tatooine, they should see Darth Maul coming at them, giving more urgency to hurry up on Tatooine and get to Coruscant.
Question, but since I'm not sure if Adywan has plans to remove Jar Jar, could you replace his voice and lines to make him almost seem like a different character. Personally I'd just remove him, but it's your call.
I have a question, but for the prequel trilogy, would you use some of the designs from http://swremixed.deviantart.com/gallery/ as they are really good. Some examples are:

A couple of fan requests for the prequels, specifically the Phantom Menace. I'd really like to see more of Darth Maul. I don't know if its possible but I really want to see him get more screen time, show that his character is more of a menace toward the Jedi. I'd like to see perhaps the Jedi see Maul as their escaping Naboo so that they know he's an enemy and let that increase the tension of the movie. I'd also like to see if you can try to change young Jake Lyold Anakin's, perhaps with another kid, so its not as annoying.
The next request is not really a request but more of an idea. Now I know Adywan has no intention of adding anything to do with the Expanded Universe, and while I agree, I would like to see perhaps a passing mention to perhaps the Thrawn Trilogy, by far the only true competent EU story out there. Maybe a passing mention of Thrawns name or a cameo of Mara Jade in Jabbas Palace, as according to Thrawn trilogy, she was there in disguise on a mission to kill Luke Skywalker.
Other than that, I wish you good luck on your glorious fan edit, and may the Force be with you!
