This idea would have more feasibility after the next few Disney films are done.
By then we’d have:
Ep 1 2 3
Boba Fett (?)
Ep 4 5 6
Ep 7 8 9
So let’s say we have the goal of making 1 hour episodes with each one ending with a climactic moment. Now, the strength of Thrones is that it has a lot of things happening at once, meaning there can be many little vignettes of different character moments.
Perhaps there can be a similar approach made with some of the films that have some crossover timelines.
Han Solo could POTENTIALLY cross over with Parts of Rogue 1’s time.
Boba Fett, depending on when it takes place, could also be a part of this. If it’s about Young Fett post-Sith, that would essentially make Han Solo, Fett, and Rogue ALMOST simultaneously. Could even take it one step further and add New Hope, making all 4 movies into a tv series season. A particularly ambitious editor may even be able to salvage parts of the the Christmas Special footage.
Meanwhile, perhaps a really really good editor could use all the deleted scenes from AOTC and ROTS to make various character moments (other Jedi, Padme’s family) just like Thrones uses different scenes to further character development.
The tougher ones are Phantom, which is 10 years too far back to be edited in, and Empire-Jedi, which are too far from the other ones to be spliced together. Only thing I can think of is to use a framing flashback device.
Maybe Phantom’s key scenes can be used in Anakin’s dreams in AOTC and Sith. I also had the idea of using Neeson’s OTHER movie footage of him in some vague swordfighting castle environments as part of his Jedi training–what if he had an entire adventure beforehand?
Empire and Jedi would have to be left alone, though I suppose if Fett takes place around Jedi it could be added in. It would take a genius of writing to use the only other footage of Ewoks (ewoks adventure) to turn Jedi’s story into Thrones episodes. This is wishful thinking, but what if that kid from Ewok’s adventures actually helped the Ewoks train to fight the empire? What if he’s one of the surviving Jedi? I dunno, rewrite him as the son of one of the few Jedi who survived.
In an ideal world, the footage of Rebels and other cartoons could be used, but the change in style is simply too jarring to pull that off. Same with most Video games, which is sad that it is too different to use. In a doubly ideal world, the fan film makers would come together to allow their films to become part of this Thrones version. If that WERE possible, this would make this entire project even better. Imaging watching the Maul fanfilm mixed with the Neeson training film.
It’s a lofty goal, but I do believe it’s doable, it doesn’t require NEW material per se, just careful editing and some dialogue rewrites to fit the framing mechanisms.
