The final version will not only have the deleted scenes look a lot cleaner, I’m also considering animating new scenes featuring Captain Raymus Antilles, R5-D4 (the red astromech with the bad motivator), the Disaster from the perspective of the Alderaanians, Red Seven, Red Eight, Red Twelve, Gold Three, Gold Four, Gold Six, Gold Seven, Gold Eight, and the abandoned Rebel base on Dantooine, among others, as resources allow. Performers I plan to model the characters after in the proposed new scenes include Tim Beckmann (Captain Raymus Antilles), Zarene Dallas (Red Eight), Ingvlid Deila with the face of the great Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia Organa), Scott Eastwood (Red Twelve), John Forgeham (Gunnery Captain Bolvan), the great Sir Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Benjamin Hartley (Red Seven), Don Henderson (General Cassio Tagge), Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn), Bill Nighy (Officer Arvira), Adrianna Palecki (Gold Six), Adrian Pasdar (Gold Eight), Ryan Reynolds (Gold Four), Rene Russo (Queen Breha Organa), Jimmy Smits (Bail Organa), and Emma Watson (Gold Three and Dr. Chelli Lona Aphra), though I don’t know who should be the model for Gold Seven as there isn’t any artwork of him as of writing. At any rate, the new scenes, if they’re included, will come mainly from From a Certain Point of View.
Proposed new scenes, in chronological order, are as follows:
- After Darth Vader enters the Tantive IV, Captain Antilles attempts to convince Princess Leia to escape and is eventually accosted by Stormtroopers. Taken from the story “Raymus” by Gary Whitta.
- Between Biggs informing Luke about his plan to join the Rebellion and the Jawas capturing R2, Bolvan asks a certain favor of Arvira. Taken from the story “The Sith of Datawork” by Ken Liu.
- Captain Mod Terrik has the Jawas slaughtered, and R5 plays dead and escapes the carnage with his life. Taken from the story “The Red One” by Rae Carson.
- After Luke finds his aunt Beru and uncle Owen dead, Qui-Gon appears to Obi-Wan as he organizes a small funeral for the slaughtered Jawas. Taken from the story “Master and Apprentice” by Claudia Gray.
- The Disaster from the POV of Alderaan. Taken from the story “Eclipse” by Madeleine Roux.
- General Tagge leads an expedition to Dantooine and discovers a cardboard box array reading “REBUL BAZE”. Taken from the story “Far Too Remote” by Jeffrey Brown.
- Dr. Aphra is questioned by Stormtroopers on Dantooine and narrowly escapes execution by talking down to her would-be executioner and faking it. Taken from the story “The Trigger” by Kieron Gillen.
- Assorted shots of Red Seven, Red Eight, Red Twelve, Gold Three, Gold Four, Gold Six, Gold Seven, and Gold Eight during the Battle of Yavin.
