- Make Qui-Gon Obi-Wan’s elder brother.
- In the Naboo saber fight, Maul cuts off Qui-Gon’s arm. Right before Maul can finish Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan uses a mind trick to sneak up on Maul and kill him.
- Qui-Gon takes the role of Count Dooku. He escapes the Republic, leads the Separatists, yada yada. The key difference is that he is not in league with Sidious.
- Anakin slays Qui-Gon instead of Dooku at the start of ROTS.
Basically make it so that the character of Dooku does not exist and his role gets transferred to Qui-Gon, the Secessionist Light Side Templar.
I think a complete reboot is needed. Not restructuring. Qui-Gon has no business being a major character at all. Obi-Wan should be a full-fledged Jedi Knight and aged enough that he’s had a few apprentices. Not to mention that in midst of 20 years, Obi Wan goes from looking like he’s in his late 30’s and then 80 in A New Hope. His age needs adjusting.
Naboo had no purpose. Alderaan needs to be a major planet in the films. We all know why.
I like the idea of uniforms. I too feel like it was strange the Tattooine clothing line becomes the Jedi robes.
I have a lot of thoughts about re-imagined prequels… Just need time to lay them all out.
