Okay, I can see what can be done with the sunset battle idea in full.

While watching V1, my friends and I were discussing a possible edit that hasn’t been mentioned here, so I’ll just mention it: Poe’s survival and arrival at the battle could be more surprising/emotional if his introductory whoop was moved to just after Finn yells “That’s one hell of a pilot!” Then it could quickly cut to “Don’t let these dogs scare you”, so we keep all of his dialogue. Just an idea to chew on.

When Padme is in her queen garb and is talking in her “low formal voice” redub her with a different language that is subtitled. So essentially when she is the queen she only speaks in the “traditional Naboo dialect.” might be able to use this to change some of the politics of the TPM.

Not that this is a bad idea, but the redubbing has to stop somewhere, right? In OT, subtitles and other languages are used sparingly, but enough to immerse the viewer in the idea that this is an alien place. Now you’ve got the Neimoidians redubbed. And Jar Jar redubbed. And the Queen? Feels like a quarter of the film at that point would be making use of subtitles. Which would not be enjoyable.

Yeah I agree with that. But none the less it is still an option, especially considering she has much less dialog as the queen than jar jar. Also I think Jar Jar or the neimoidians could be redubbed with english speaking people and still be somewhat accurate with the mouth movements. But you do make a good point.

littlev87, you can get an idea of some of the planned revisited prequel changes here, if that helps - https://swrevisited.wordpress.com/ptr-facts/

(but time enough to go into all that when the revisited prequel thread(s) appear here eventually)

The Wampa is coming along nicely by the looks of things I see. Great stuff!

Unfortunately I’ve read that already, but thank you. I guess I should have phrased that differently. I meant to say I would like to know more beyond what has already been listed on the website. I just can’t see how they can be fixed without major re-writes. Anyway, I’ll save it for the proper thread in the future, thanks again though.

And the painted Wampa mask placed (roughly) onto the inner skull. Now to finish painting the mouth and then start applying the fur, paint and attach the horns and finally glue the mask to the inner skull

So will you be wearing this? How will the mouth be operated? Will there be any articulation for the face?

Thank you.

I’m looking forward to that eventual ‘saga’ trailer too! I’d forgotten about that.

That’s likely to be after ESB:R comes out now.

sorry if I missed it but what exactly is the “saga trailer”?

thank you

It’s a trailer featuring potential shots from all 6 Revisited edits.

So Ady is making a trailer highlighting the bigger changes he plans to make to the rest of the saga? Definitely exciting but I hope it won’t detract from getting them finished. I would certainly love to know more about his prequel changes. I’ve been trying to rewrite TPM for years using as much original footage with minimal changes, and it seems to me the only way to make it a great movie would be to recast anakin and roto him into every shot. Not to mention create a lot of new shots to rewrite his back story.

Thank you.

It’s true this edit is narrowly focused, but I don’t mind discussion of scenes and dialogue closely related. There was some discussion a while back about whether to remove, “Those beasts,” or, “They’re here.” I think the idea was removing, “They’re here,” avoids having it look like no one told Maz about the impending attack.

I understand. But I don’t see how removing “those beasts” would affect anything (unless you’re removing both lines). I get how removing the latter line would change it, though I’m not sure removing either is necessary with the current lone star destroyer solution, as that doesn’t necessarily imply an impending attack.

I don’t think it matters whether those lines are in the edit or not. I don’t feel like it changes anything. Though my opinion is to leave it with just the “they’re here” line. Those beasts is just kinda redundant.

Also I don’t get the impression that her saying “they’re here” means that she wasn’t aware of the attack, it comes off more like “we’re running out of time”

I would like to see what can be done with the ending of the movie to add more weight to the loss of the republic. Even in the theatrical cut there is almost no reaction from anyone.

Thank you! I might be able to make it sound better, but I would need a better audio clip of Boyega saying something similar (the “ound” sound for “found”, especially). I found a clip where he said something about “five pound” that I used for this, but it was not ideal, so if anyone can find a better audio source I’d be happy.

It might also work better with a different musical cue, as some suggested. Any ideas about a part of the score which could be used here?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-zcfN1RMDU

2:19 - pounds
12:21 - sounds
29:08 - found

all in his english accent but might work for the redub.

littlev87 , good stuff! Did you modify videofred’s script?

I did not create this content, it was stuff I found on these boards, and saved the links.

I wish I had the computing power to do any of this. I was working with AE several months ago, but it was glitchy and had to keep redoing the same roto over and over again, and I eventually gave up.

I started also to work to scene cleaning, desert storm, in particular: it’s really difficult to get rid of all those big scratches without losing details… I must find the right compromise, not an easy task. Treadwell is worst, the first shot is really hard; but I guess it could be easy to reuse previous/next frames (or part of them) to remove residual dirt. Now, if someone has cleaned some deleted scenes, and would like to share them, it will be a great help for the project!

Hi! First post. I would be more than happy to colorize the deleted scenes from V and VI. (When Applicable)

Do you have an efficient method for doing so? As I understand it, it takes entire studios to do this sort of thing.

Thanks

Sure do, I use avisynth scripts to start and then I adjust and correct with photoshop.

Can you do a small test of this, I’m really interested in what is possible? Maybe a scene of the deleted rebel pilots from jedi or the extended han leia kiss from empire?

Thanks

Not that it will necessarily pertain to this edit, but I’ve always felt that in the Prequels yoda would have been much more effective as a character less seen and more heard. I always had the impression that yoda was essentially every living jedi’s teacher in that he was like the principal of the jedi “school” and the masters were the “teachers” that taught various disciplines of yoda’s philosophies. Just my two cents.

And to address the notion of Dooku appearing out of nowhere…honestly, I think that’s part of his problem in Episode II anyway. He’s a villain that shows up out of nowhere and gives an expositional speech as to why he’s the new villain. I feel like if I can find a conceivable way to introduce him into Episode I, he’ll at least be a familiar face in II and we’ll have some notion of who he is. Actually, as I’m typing this out, I’m thinking showing him in the council would work really well. I’ll see what I can do.

In the beginning of the movie when Obi and QGJ are aboard the federation ship, Obi says “master Yoda said I should be mindful of the future.” Would it add anything to have him say master dooku? I think this change be used as foreshadowing for what about to happen over the next two movies between him and Obi? Plus, of course, we hear the name dooku early which helps establish continuity for his character.
