Now, we all know that there are hundreds of Star Wars fan-edits out there, but I have not found any that would edit the films so that they match with Legends better (the superior Star Wars universe and not the crap Disney has made). What I mean by this, is adding various elements from Legends into the background. I also want to remove production mistakes and annoying stuff.

Ever since Star Wars Revisited was released, I have been wondering how to do this, and I have a few ideas about

The Phantom Menace:
-Re-write title crawl to incorporate Legends elements and make it more exciting.
-Add an Aayla Secura cameo (since she was on an undercover mission with Quinlan Vos at the time).
-Add cameos of Jorus C’baoth and Jerec (main villain of Dark Forces 2) to the scenes in the Jedi Temple.

Attack of the Clones:
-Re-write title crawl to incorporate Legends elements and make it more exciting.
-Add various Legends Jedi and Clone Troopers to the Battle of Geonosis.
-Recolour Anakin’s robot hand at the end of the film gold, so it matches with Star Wars Clone Wars.

Revenge of the Sith:
-Re-colour the Millennium Falcon’s engines blue.
-Re-insert the deleted Mon Mothma scenes back in and insert Garm Bel Ibis digitally into them.
-Extend the Order 66 scene in order to add various cameos to show multiple Jedi getting killed (that weren’t in the original scene).
-Digitally alter Palpatine’s statues so that they have golden versions of Darth Revan and Darth Nihilus’ masks on.
-Re-insert the deleted scene of Yoda arriving on Dagobah.

A New Hope:
-Re-write title crawl to incorporate Legends elements.
-Add various Legends ships to the battle of Yavin.

Empire Strikes Back:
-Re-write title crawl to incorporate Legends elements.
-Add an Outrider or Dash Rendar cameo so that it matches up with Shadows of the Empire.
-Add landing crafts to deploy AT-ATs
-Add shot of Derek Klivian flying his damaged vessel directly into the cockpit of Maximilian Veers’s walker.
-Add Mon Calamari ships to the Rebel Fleet at the end.
-Make it so the fleet jumps to lightspeed just before the credits.

Return of the Jedi:
-Re-write title crawl to incorporate Legends elements.
-Add a Mara Jade cameo so that it matches up with the novel: Tales from Jabba’s Palace.
-Add shot of Boba Fett escaping from the Sarlacc pit (possibly as post-credits scene for the sake of pacing).
-Add various Legends ships to the Battle of Endor.

I’m not sure what version of the films I want to use. I know for the prequels I will use the 2011 special edition versions (as they fix some of the bad CGI). As for the original trilogy, I want to use a mix of Revisited and Despecialized. Revisited for the effects, Despecialized for undoing special edition changes that Adywan did not change (and I would have to remove anything that conforms to the Disney continuity).

If you have any ideas, let me know so I can add them to this post and increase the number of edits to make. Also, I will not be able to make these edits for a long time, so don’t be surprised if these edits don’t get made within the next decade.
