Revenge of the Sith (The New Canon Cut)

Yes. This approach, the inclusion of more militaristic dialogue and the removal of any references to Anakin as a diminished character makes this edit the most promising ROTS fan-edit since the days of Aalenfae, Cutter and Bob Garcia’s edits.

Yeah, I’m only hoping he does the same for AOTC so that I can have the perfect machete order. 😂

Cut out AotC. It’s doesn’t really add anything, and it’s irrelevant like TPM. Boom perfect machete order* (once this fanedit is done).

*Technically that’s no longer Machete Order, but eat my shorts.

I tend to watch the SE sometimes

It’s refreshing to watch them every once in a while.

TV’s Frink said:

Why?

It’s different. Different stuff is refreshing. Not necessarily good, but different and interesting to look at once in a while. I would never show it to a newcomer to Star Wars, and I probably wouldn’t ever watch it in a marathon with friends, but I might look at a scene or two every once in a while.

Are retrospective changes just fan service?

Nobody is disputing that 04 onwards is worse than the 97

Pretty sure anyone who thinks that the 97 is somehow totally different from the later SEs and has more in common with the originals is just as blinded by nostalgia for those editions as they claim we are for the OUT.

I think part of it is because of all the SEs it has the fewest changes and the coloring is somewhat closer to the original.

Yes. The general look of the movie isn’t all that different. Obviously the tone and content are different, but the look isn’t.

What's that fanedit that completely removed Jar Jar?
Time

I remember seeing, probably a year or so ago, a WIP fanedit that completely removed Jar Jar from the prequels, or maybe just the Phantom Menace, I don’t remember. It was pretty amazing, removing him from the audio, and erasing him from the video, too. It had a trailer on dailymotion or vimeo, probably the latter. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find anything on it anywhere anymore. Does anyone remember this, and have any links to anything on it?

What if every movie had a pre-crawl scene?
Time

That would defeat the purpose of the crawl, but I’ll play along.

After doing some thinking, that would only work for RotS, which would show the beginning of the Battle of Coruscant, and ANH, which would show maybe the beginning of the chase, as in Rogue One. All the others really can’t have much of an opening scene before it.

The Star Wars Trilogy: Divergent Edition (AKA the OT fan-edit DuracellEnergizer would like to make but probably never will)
Time

emanswfan said:

I am just wondering why you would want these though.

I will tint all outdoor, daytime scenes on Tatooine a heavy pink.

I will remove any significant cloud cover from Tatooine’s sky.

I will tint all outdoor, daytime scenes on Hoth a heavy blue.

I will give Vader’s lightsaber a yellowish core in all shots.

I can speak for the cloud cover one: Tatooine is entirely a desert, so it should have not enough water to make clouds. (Sorry if this has already been answered)

Need special effects for your edit? Request them here!
Time

SparkySywer said:

If it isn’t any trouble for anyone, can someone make a version of the shot from RotJ where they’re all leaving Tatooine, but instead of Luke leaving for Dagobah, he follows the Millenium Falcon?

I no longer need this, I just cut out the shot, but it looks like someone else wants it.

NeverarGreat said:

I posted this in my project thread, but since that tends to get buried quite fast, I’m looking for some stabilized and denoised shots from the SSE - in particular the lightsaber shots on board the Falcon and the final section of the Obi-wan/Vader duel, where they are in the doorway to the hangar. It would be super helpful to have these shots for lightsaber replacements on the Blu-ray, so the denoising would need to marry into that footage.

What exactly are you looking for? Shots without the film grain?

STAR WARS: EP V "REVISITED EDITION"**ADYWAN** - **Suggestions now closed**
Time

Hal 9000 said:

Ady, I’m curious if you have any plans to include or exclude the Death Star’s brief appearance at the end of Episode III.

I believe it’s not going to be there. Personally, I think it’d be better, watching chronologically, if you don’t know a DS could exist until R1 or even the crawl for ANH.

Assuming the prequels are good movies (which they aren’t, but I’m hoping Adywan can change that if possible), then watching them chronologically would have that as kind of a cliffhanger. You’d be wondering what this big thing they’re constructing is.

Get ready for "Star Wars - Shroud of the Sith", a radical fan edit of "The Phantom Menace"
Time

The Ritty said:

Midichlorians are real people - get over it, they’re just movies lol

Dude this is just a fanedit, holy shit.

The Ritty said:

Why do people insist on just removing all the things they didn’t like.

Because they can, really. It’s a fanedit, if they think something improves a movie, that can do it.

The Ritty said:

You can’t betray Lucas’ vision for his movies. So many people get this wrong. Just cutting stuff out doesn’t make the movie any better.

We can do whatever we want.

The Ritty said:

You know why no one mentioned them in the original trilogy? Cuz it was just yoda & obi wan left. Seriously, why even bother with that explanation. Who’s got the time. Luke’s the only ‘jedi’ left. Who’s got time for all that science crap after 900 yrs.

Who asked? The problem with midichlorians isn’t that it’s not in the OT, it’s that they’re bad.

The Ritty said:

I’m fine with the bacteria explanation.

OK, and other people aren’t. Tough.

The Ritty said:

do you get paid to do this? No. Who cares if you fixed effects and edited the sound and blah blah blah

The creators do. It’s a hobby.

The Ritty said:

Midichlorians are real people - get over it, they’re just movies lol

You should service Lucas’ vision and try to help make it better.

We can do whatever we want.

The Ritty said:

The STORY comes first.

Dope.

The Ritty said:

That’s all that matters, not trying to prove hpw amazing you are or take over someone else’s baby. Remember that.

Nobody’s doing either of those. Bad day?

The Ritty said:

P.S.

If you take out the midichlorians, then Anakin doesn’t exist.

Why? Anakin could have just been a kid, not some kid who was conceived by midichlorians.

The Ritty said:

Plus they’re referenced in all 3 prequels.

Factually incorrect. Not mentioned in Attack of the Clones. Either way, irrelevant.

The Ritty said:

“A Virgence you say?”
“It is possible he was CONCIEVED by the midichlorians.”
“You’re speaking of the prophecy of the chosen one?”

Take out the midichlorians and all this has no meaning. Just sayin 😉

Dope. So take that out, too.
